Kevin Garnett whips a cross-court pass to Jeff Green in the weak-side corner. Green gives a slight up-fake and takes off down the lane. Now it’s time to go all-in or get shut down. Let’s go all in. Green has Al Jefferson directly in front of him with Paul Millsap and Derrick Favors surrounding him. [...]

Nets head coach Avery Johnson recently expressed his frustration about how Celtics veteran forward Kevin Garnett is always calling out his team's plays on the floor.
Avery Johnson hates when Garnett calls Johnson's plays before they happen. Understandable.We missed this yesterday, which is a shame, but Avery Johnson had some very complimentary things to say about Kevin Garnett before the game.These quotes come courtesy of Mike Mazzeo at ESPN New York:“The funny thing is, I wish he would be quiet on the floor and not call out your plays...
BOSTON — Anyone who claims that a dunk is only worth two points has never been in the building when a player delivered a true facial to a helpless defender.
Jeff Green produced just such a highlight-reel dunk on Wednesday, when the reserve forward bulled into the lane, elevated over Al Jefferson and slammed the ball home over the reeling Utah Jazz center. The TD Garden crowd erupted...
Some good stuff from KG hating to Paul Pierce's old man game that was killing them. Of course there are the Tommy haters. Funny that they hate on Tommy for being a homer, but when I watch other teams' announcers it seems that they are just as much homers, as they should be. And of course they hate on their own players... Al, Mo, Foye. Enjoy today's CFTOS.

First, the bench came through for the Celtics last night. They played like we envisioned them playing when we first saw them on paper. The timing...
Kevin Garnett said Celtics Jeff Green needed to find his inner a$$hole and get mean. Wednesday night Jeff showed he has a little mean in him. Check out his dunk on Utah Jazz’s Al Jefferson. Look, that was SEXY!! Oh, Jeff had a comment about the dunk on Twitter. Don’t worry Jeff, you’re [...]
The Celtics were cold in the 4th quarter. If they weren’t dunking the ball, that ball wasn’t going through the hoop.
Lucky for the Celtics, pulled off two plays that got them the high-percentage shots they needed at crucial times. Actually… it was the same play… just run on opposite sides of the floor.
Here’s the first one:
The play really happens at the :13 mark with...
Nine games into the 2012-13 NBA season, there is a situation brewing that could have both short- and long-term ramifications for the Utah Jazz: the play of Paul Millsap.
The NBA announced All-Star ballots for each team today, and the Celtics are well represented, with five players.

After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value.

Early on, Rondo’s contribution was strictly scoring. Once again, he shot 50% from 16-23 feet. He did only shoot 3 of 9 for the game, but a couple of those shots were half way down. After finishing the...
The Jazz hold a slight 46-44 lead over the Celtics at the half behind 10 points each from Derrick Favors and Paul Millsap. The Jazz have dominated the paint, but have been held back by mediocre shooting and a lack of dynamic ball movement. Most of the Jazz’ baskets have come on offensive rebounds, post [...]
The Utah Jazz have some big decisions (pun intended) to make going forward, but the unmatched depth of their frontcourt continues to pay dividends for the time being. In Toronto, Paul Millsap, Al Jefferson, and Derrick Favors basically made all the plays throughout an exhilarating triple-overtime marathon that saw 277 total points get scored. The madness began when Jefferson knocked...
