How to beat… the Brooklyn Nets

How to beat… the Brooklyn Nets

Now that a little dose of reality has been administered, I think we can rule out a “taking a bad team lightly” game from the Celtics. The guys have learned that they’re pretty damn good when they’re fully engaged, and they can be pretty bad when they get aloof and slack off. It’s a nice [...]

Ainge: ‘McHale has a standing offer to work here’

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge joined Toucher & Rich this morning. As may be expected, the first topic was Kevin McHale: According to Ainge, he and Kevin talk “all the time,” and Kevin was shocked by his dismissal yesterday.

Enemy Chatter: Kelly’s Olynyk’s ‘Dirk’ move is cold blooded

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 Dallas. After the game, Nowitzki was asked about Olynyk stealing his move. “That was cold-blooded,” said Nowitzki, who suggested he heard an assistant coach shout that a one-footed ISO might be [...]
