Avery Bradley out tonight as BOTH shoulders now an issue

Avery Bradley out tonight as BOTH shoulders now an issue

This is just great.  Somehow Bradley's right shoulder has become an issue as well.  The left shoulder is so bad that it practically pops in and out in a strong breeze. Remember when we speculated about the possibility of him needing surgery?  Yeah, that's going to happen this offseason.  He'll be the third Celtic in [...]

How to spring KG to get good looks

How to spring KG to get good looks

Kevin Garnett is the key to winning this series.  When he gets the ball in a good position and gets good, open shots.. the Celtics do extremely well.  KG has had some problems establishing the post against Lavoy Allen.  The kid is strong and he has had some success pushing KG out of his comfort [...]

Paul Pierce doesn’t know what a slump is, even with his knee at 20%

Paul Pierce doesn’t know what a slump is, even with his knee at 20%

You don't score more than 25,000 points in the NBA if you get sensitive about a couple of missed shots.  So it's no real shock (but still awesome to hear) Paul Pierce say this when he was asked about getting out of a slump: I don't never think I'm in a slump. I really don't [...]

Doc burns Shaq on “Inside the NBA”

Doc burns Shaq on “Inside the NBA”

After the Spurs finished off sweeping the Clippers last night, Inside the NBA played this very special ball-busting message from Doc Rivers to Shaquille O'Neal "Also tell Shaq, please, for me, if he had gotten into the type of shape that he was against Barkley, we might have won it last year." If you don't [...]

Bradley sits out shoot-around

Bradley sits out shoot-around

Avery Bradley left Game 4 with the Celtics up 16 in the third.  Over the next nine minutes, the Sixers scored 25 points.   That's an over-simplfication of Bradley's effect on the team.  But it's pretty obvious that Avery Bradley has become a critical part of not only the Celtics defense, but the Celtics offense.  [...]

Doc admits C’s should have gone to Bass more

Doc admits C’s should have gone to Bass more

A lot readers said it. A lot of people during the game were tweeting it.   Why wasn't Brandon Bass in the game down the stretch?  At the time, it appeared Doc was riding his recent small-lineup success to try to generate defensive stops and kick-start a stalled offense with some transition basketball.  But in [...]

Your Morning Dump… where the players and Doc each share responsibility

Your Morning Dump… where the players and Doc each share responsibility

   Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “Once they picked up their intensity, I didn’t think we really played with a sense of urgency in the third or fourth quarter,” Pierce said. “That’s [...]

Larry Bird… the most successful individual in basketball history?

With his crowning as the NBA's executive of the year for 2012, Larry Bird may have sealed his case as the basketballs most successful and influential individual in the history of the sport.

Doc: The series isn’t over

Doc: The series isn’t over

Game 2 gave people a little pause as they wondered if the inevitable Celtics-Heat matchup would get derailed by injuries and apathy that were worse than we thought.  After last night, most people went back to outright dismissing Philly's chances of advancing, citing the Celtics ability to flip a switch and dominate when needed. Today, [...]
