Celtics have finally played the most efficient, if not beautiful basketball (well, save for 4th quarter) of the season to get a very important win over Bulls in their second consecutive road game. The starters, with the recent promotion of Terry (13 pts, 5-10 FGs) and Bass (16 pts, 5 rbs, 3 assists [yep]), seem to have clicked as they all produced impressive +/- numbers and scored in double digits. Terry has also shown signs of embracing his role as he hit couple of very big shots down the stretch in plays formerly run for Ray Allen.
The bench has continued to struggle scoring which has been a familiar story for Celtics fans for quite some time. Green, however, has grabbed 5 rebounds which made up a little for his scoring woes. Lee, on the other hand, has continued to underperform, which will make things easier for Doc when Bradley returns.
Best parts of the stat sheet are that we only turned the ball over 8 times, had 9 steals and 5 blocked shots, all be...

Jeff Green Cannot Play, And It Has Crippled the Boston Celtics Remember that vaunted Boston Celtics bench? The one that was going to carry the Celts at the very least back to the Eastern Conference Finals, with a chance to bring home Banner 18? The Celtics bench had the quintessential microwave in Jason Terry. [...]

“He works hard at his craft,” Pierce said. “It’s developing nicely over the years. I feel that with me, Kevin (Garnett) being around here, I’ve been a part of that. It’s beautiful to watch him finally...
The one (slight?) concern that Celtics fans had in the beginning of the season was the lack of a pure backup PG. There were two sides to that: Yes, it is very important to cut Rondo's minutes efficiently, yet there are no backup PGs available who can do that at a satisfactory level. Celtics' experiments with veteran PGs have not been the best as we all know (save for Dooling...
Rondo got robbed of an assist when Garnett got hit.
Rajon Rondo's spectacular streak of 30 games with 10+ assists has led me to keep a very close eye on his ball distribution of late. As he continues to climb his way up the charts towards the all-time record, I watch each game intently keeping track of his assist count.
While at the Garden last Wednesday I noticed three...

In an NBA.com article this morning by David Aldridge (scroll down past the Laker talk), Keyon Dooling tells the story of a nervous breakdown he sustained this summer, and his subsequent week long stay in a mental institution. He details the experiences that led to his decision to retire from the Celtics, which all stem from sexual abuse he suffered as a child.
Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we've posted some pretty solid clips from the folks over at Network of Champions.As part of their series with Boston Celtics guard Jason Terry, they allowed Jason to show off his shooting stroke.Check out this clip where he makes 50 out of 55 straight jump shots:

After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value.
Offense: 20 points on a very efficient 10-16 shooting. He hit 5 of 6 shots at the rim, and 5 of 8 from everywhere else inside the 3-point line. A few of his turnovers were sloppy, but a few of his passes were spectacular.
Defense: He played the passing lanes...

DeMarcus Cousins was suspended again yesterday. This time for 2 games for his attack on Spurs announcer Sean Elliott, based on Elliott's mild criticism of him on the air. Reporters wondered why he got such a serious penalty for going after an announcer, but it's obvious to me. It's called being a repeat offender. Try getting caught...
