Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics are old, slow and defensively deficient?

Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics are old, slow and defensively deficient?

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. “In the second half, no one did anything for us,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers deadpanned. “They threw a knockout punch.

Hip pointer won’t keep KG out of Game 3

Doc Rivers says Kevin Garnett suffered a hip pointer in Game 2 against the Knicks. See the video evidence above. The injury will not prevent KG from practicing or playing in Game 3. Shocking. As for why Jordan Crawford is playing significant minutes over Courtney Lee, Doc said: “I think offensively he gives you a [...]

Flip Flopping Crazy: Doc is in a foul mood about Game 2 officiating

Flip Flopping Crazy: Doc is in a foul mood about Game 2 officiating

Let’s be clear about this right off the top: By no means am I citing the officiating as the main reason as to why the Celtics lost Game 2 to the Knicks. Did it hurt the game plan when KG got into early foul trouble in the first and second quarters?  Without a doubt. But [...]

Enemy Chatter: The Celtics have tried a succession of underwhelming ‘unpoints’ at the helm

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from New York.

Recap: Celtics fade away in 2nd half… again

94% of playoff series are won by the team that leads 2-0. Those are some daunting odds facing the Celtics following tonight’s 87-71  loss to the Knicks. Sigh.

Jeff Green wants to do it all

“I’ve just got to do it,” Green said before the team’s morning shootaround at Madison Square Garden. “I’ve just go to play through the fatigue. I’ve got to continue to look for mine, basically.
