Making the case for Jared Sullinger as a starter

No matter how much we want to make it all about Pierce, Garnett and Rondo we can't discount the importance of the role players.  During the preseason, there were rumblings of whether or not Brandon Bass or Jared Sullinger should start. Three games into this banner chase, it is plain to see that Sully is the better fit with the starters. This isn't an indictment on Bass...

Doc Rivers Believes Celtics Need to Re-Establish Home Court Advantage in New Season (Video)

BOSTON -- The Celtics were extremely formidable at the TD Garden last season, when they won 24 of their 33 home games and enjoyed a bittersweet send-off from their fans toward the end of Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Doc Rivers Seeking Sense of Urgency From Celtics After Starting Season With Two Losses

BOSTON -- The stands at the TD Garden were filled with raucous fans decked out in fresh green-and-white garb.

Those fans desperately...

Watch: Rajon Rondo responds to Wade's punk play comments

Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo took a jab at Miami Heat forward Dwyane Wade on Thursday over the flagrant foul he received at the end of Tuesday night's season-opener in Miami. "I mean, I don't think it was a hard foul," said Rondo. "[Wade] sold it a little bit. That's basketball. They were up, he drove to the hole, I didn't want to give up a layup...

Celtics win ugly, beating Wizards reserves by 3

(We had a late scratch for the recap, but longtime reader Jenda has stepped in with a guest recap). Let's start with bad news. The first quarter was a fluke. Randy Wittman and his assistants still have to gel together as a coaching staff and they take a little longer to get into the game. They did so in second quarter and outscored the Celts 30-23. Most damage was done inside...

The Celtics still have to figure out who they are

Doc Rivers spoke about the Miami Heat in an interview with WEEI on Thursday following the Celtics loss to the Heat in the season opener:“They won a title,” said Rivers. “They have that championship swagger. They also know exactly who they are. They know their identity, they know their roles, they didn’t make many changes and you can see it in the way they played the other...

Celtics Realize Defense Must Improve Going Forward (Video)

After yielding 120 points to the Miami Heat in their season opener, the Celtics know what part of their game needs to improve. Although the Heat have a prolific offense and great speed, head coach Doc Rivers felt that the Celtics' defense was subpar, giving up far too much to a team equipped to take advantage.
