Jason Terry is drawing interest from several teams. According to CBS Sports' Ken Berger, teams have been calling Boston GM Danny Ainge and "inquiring whether Boston is willing to trade Jason Terry to get
under luxury tax."
However, the Celtics "remain in wait-and-see mode and have not indicated a strong appetite to deal," Berger reported. Of course...
The Celtics, now 23-23, will play their toughest game this week tomorrow afternoon against the Clippers. The Clippers are a terrific 34-14 and third place in the western conference. Personally, I think they are the favorite to win the title. Remember, there's no Jared Sullinger, so it'll be tough. Here are tomorrow's five things:
5. KEEP BARBOSA HOT:
Back in mid-2011 when the Boston Celtics (infamously) traded for Jeff Green, many C's fans had different views on what he could bring to the Green. Personally, I was pretty optimistic about Green, as he was averaging 13 PPG & 5 RPG, in 32 minutes per contest, of course as a starter in Oklahoma City. Jeff Green had appeared to be a fixture for the future of OKC along with...
Not even a week after losing their All-Star point guard, Rajon Rondo to an ACL injury, the Celtics have now lost their promising rookie forward to a season-ending back injury. Sullinger underwent successful lumbar disc surgery Friday and is expected back at the start of next year’s training camp.
According to ESPN Boston:

Boston Celtics forward Jeff Green has been making his name this season with his huge dunks. He didn't let us down last night against the Orlando Magic either. He threw down two huge dunks and both of them landed on the SportsCenter top 10. Check them out below.

Jared Sullinger's rookie season has come to an abrupt end. The Boston Celtics rookie will miss the rest of the season due to a back injury.
Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Sullinger's back will require surgery. Sully had experienced back pain for a few weeks and finally was forced to leave Wednesday's game with the injury. Brandon Bass should pick...
Orlando Magic rookie Andrew Nicholson double-doubled in his first start since Glen Davis broke his foot. Nicholson scored 14 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. He added an assist, a steal and two blocks in 33 minutes. It was a strong showing in the Magic's loss to the Celtics.
In nine previous starts, Nicholson averaged 9.9 points, 4 rebounds, .6 assists, .7 steals and .2 blocks...
BOSTON — Courtney Lee is the same place before every game. The Celtics shooting guard sits at his locker, surrounded by empty stalls, having gotten in all the practice shots he needed earlier in the day. After each game, he dresses quietly, pausing to answer questions from the few reporters who break away from the scrums around Paul Pierce or Kevin Garnett.
Lee, in other words...
The Celtics are feeling pretty good about their recent success without two of their key players and are looking to continue building on it. They are feeling more comfortable with the run and gun style and have found it has made them more aggressive with their attacks.
They have managed to beat the Miami Heat during this revival of grit and balls; but since the Heat are a natural...
MILWAUKEE -- Missing three-fifths of their regular starting lineup, the Orlando Magic could have been easy pickings for a surging Milwaukee Bucks team looking to snap a two-game losing streak. Instead, the Magic made things tough on Milwaukee, which responded to every attempt at an Orlando rally before pulling away late for a 107-98 victory at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. The...
