Paul Pierce and the Celtics were losers on Friday night
Rajon Rondo had a triple-double by the time the third quarter was over, but you would not have been able to tell from his post-game comments.
“I should have took the layup,” said Rondo after he missed a game-winning opportunity slipping while taking a jump-shot. “I tried to make a plant and just slipped.”
As an aside...
Rajon Rondo came back form a two-game suspension to lead the Celtics over the Timberwolves with his 14th double-double of the night, recording 17 points and 11 assists. While there is a lot to talk about the Celtics’ PG, he didn’t have much to say after the game. Doc Rivers had a lot more to [...]
Kevin Garnett has been one of the NBA’s best rebounders his entire career. In fact, he had a streak of recording at least one rebound in every game he played since January 21, 1997. But on Saturday, that streak came to an end when he failed to grab a rebound in the Boston Celtics’ 92-79 win over the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Celtics may have won the game, but Garnett was not happy...

8 a.m. ET: The Celtics are lucky to be playing at home Saturday, because they made need an extra pick-me-up from the home crowd. The Celtics will be playing their third game in four nights and their second straight game against the Sixers, a scrappy squad that has renewed its rivalry with Boston in the last two seasons.
Although such a tight stretch of games normally would put Celtics...
Philadelphia 76ers center Andrew Bynum has yet to play a game for the team, but he was seen playing pop-a-shot at a local Dave & Buster's Wednesday night, apparently trying to keep his skills sharp. Here's the proof, courtesy of @Lackey13:

It's time for the best Tweets from Tommy Heinsohn during the rematch with the Sixers and Tommy was on his game tonight! As Jeff Green was called for traveling, Tommy was counting his steps and Mike wasn't too thrilled with his counting skills.

Celtics fell to the Sixers in Philly last night, 95-94 in OT. Very frustrating loss for the team, and it’s fans. Tonight, the two Eastern Conference foes will get back in the ring for Round 2. The 2nd game of the home and home tips-off at TD Garden at 7:30pm EST.
Check out some pics/GIFs from last night’s contest in the meantime…

About 2 years ago, I had the pleasure of meeting die-hard Celtics fan Chris H, aka “Hal Dogg” at TD Garden. This guy is just full of energy and Celtic Pride. He’s at the Garden for pretty much every home game with the attitude that the Celtics are going to win, no matter what.

Of course had Len Bias lived the Celtics would've likely won the 1987 title. Maybe 1988 too. I actually one time saw a Philadelphia 76ers 1984 NBA Champs t-shirt in a store, which is weird since they didn't even make the Finals that year. Of course if this was the caricature shirt of the 2010 bunch (with Sheed and Finley) I would've just bought it myself but this...
Meet Courtney Lee, shooting guard for the Boston Celtics.
He’s a decent on-ball defender at-best and can score in bunches when given the chance. Some would call that being a role player, but I assure you that’s not the case.
