Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
After losing a few winnable games to bad teams, the Celtics will play an actual good team tonight when they visit the Grizzlies. This Boston team has just looked terrible recently. A win tonight would definitely give them some much-needed momentum. Let's hope they get it. Here are tonight's five things:
5. STOP LETTING BRADLEY SHOOT:
In Dallas, Avery Bradley shot just 4/12 from the field. I don't know why they keep giving him shots. He clearly can't shoot they way he once could. Please stop giving him 10+ shots a game.
4. BETTER 3-POINT SHOOTING:
Last night, the Celtics shot a horrible, 5/17 from three-point land. This is really bad. If they could've made a few more of those open shots, they would've easily won. Practice this in shootaround.
3. KEEP GETTING BASS INVOLVED:
Finally, Brandon Bass is coming out of his shell and playing very well for the Celtics. Last night, he scored a team-high 16 points on 4/9 shooting and 8/8 free throw shooting. Keep this up.
2. GET TERRY MORE THREES:
If there's one thing that Jason Terry is actually good at, it's three-point shooting. But in his return to Dallas, he only got two threes, missing both of them. Give him more or just don't play him.
1. TRY TO FOUL LESS:
This one's gonna be really hard to do, because most fouls are accidental. But if you can, attempt to foul less. In Dallas, the C's fouled 26 times. They need to lower that number.
Tip-off for tonight's game will be at 8:00 pm ET. You can see it on CSN-NE.

Tweet With All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo out for the remainder of the season due to a knee injury a collective effort by the Boston Celtics will be needed to make up for the loss.

Jason Terry will play his first game in Dallas tonight since leaving the Mavericks to join Boston in the offseason.
Terry was the second best player on the Mavericks squad that beat Miami for the 2011 championship. While the Dallas native wanted to stay with the Mavericks and even offered the team the chance to match the offer the Celtics made to the Jet, Mark Cuban and his management...

The fans posting on the Hornets' boards have become very few, but I guess you can't blame them. It's pretty funny to see fans who are set on tanking and getting the best draft pick suddenly want to win just because it's the Celtics. The Celtics should not have lost this game. They pretty much beat themselves. There is something very wrong when the bench...
DALLAS (AP) -- Dirk Nowitzki scored 22 points, Shawn Marion had a double-double in his return from a calf injury and the Mavericks spoiled Jason Terry's return to Dallas with a 104-94 victory over the Boston Celtics on Friday night.

The Mavs spoiled Jason Terry's homecoming.
The Celtics had no answer for Brandan Wright in the post, and his season high 23 points paced the Mavs 104-94 wire to wire victory over Boston. Wright shot 11-16 from the field, including a number of uncontested dunks. Dirk Nowitzki also scored 22 for Dallas, and Vince Carter chipped in 17 off the bench. Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett...

Boston Celtics (36-31) vs. Dallas Mavericks (32-36)
In some ways, Jason Terry has fit right in with Boston.
No, the Celtics are not among the elite in the East anymore (although opponents should still be wary). The season has not quite gone according to plan for Boston. The Playoffs are still going to take place for the Celtics and that is something.
It looked like maybe the Celtics would somewhat salvage this road trip tonight when they started the game on a 12-2 run. Unfortunately, it was not to be. An undermanned and visibly frustrated C’s team was no match for the Grizzlies. Memphis dominated this game on all levels tonight: rebounding, scoring in the paint, second-chance points, you get the picture. Boston goes 0-3 on...
Celtics’ Doc Rivers and Jason Terry were less than compassionate Friday night when Courtney Lee was carried off the floor by teammates after spraining his ankle.
Boston was in the midst of a comeback against Dallas, down just five with under two minutes remaining in the game when Lee went down with an ankle injury on a possession that left O.J. Mayo wide open for a three-pointer...
Mavericks 104, Celtics 94
While most basketball fans tuned into the second day of what is sure to be an electrifying NCAA Tournament, the Celtics (36-32) continued to struggle. For the first time since Rajon Rondo tore his ACL on January 27th, this team has lost three straight contests, and they appeared particularly out of sync during Friday night’s loss in Dallas. Boston is now...
