In the effort at full disclosure, I proclaimed Paul Pierce “finished” during an afternoon IM session with John. I may have been wrong.
The Truth torched Cleveland for 40 points and 6 three pointers in the Celtics 103-91 win. The Cavs are awful and played without Anderson Varejao (knee) tonight, but who are we to be picky? A win is a win.

BOSTON (AP) -- Paul Pierce scored 25 of his season-high 40 points in the second half, carrying the Boston Celtics to a 103-91 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night.
Pierce made 10 of 11 shots from the floor after halftime, hitting his first eight -- including his initial three 3-point attempts. He finished 13 of 16 from the field.
Rajon Rondo added 20 points and eight...

It was clear that something was wrong with the Celtics team (especially their defense without KG), and thus came tonight the most significant lineup shake-up this year which sent KG back to 4 and starts Collins at 5. It turned out that move wasn't a bad one as the Celtics rode 40 points from Paul Pierce to beat the Varejao-less Cavaliers 103-91...
Paul Pierce and the Celtics believe they are lacking a defensive identity.
I don’t know where to start, so I’m just going to get to the point: other than Paul Pierce, the C’s basically could not hit a shot to save their lives for most of the 2nd half and OT. Monta Ellis and the Bucks hung-around all evening and finish the C’s off 99-94 in OT. The Bucks even tried to give the game back to Boston by blowing a 7 point lead with under a minute left...
The Celtics lost again on Tuesday night, something that has become quite the trend through the first quarter of the NBA season.
The C’s, who were one game from the NBA Finals, just a few months ago, now find themselves sitting at .500 with a 12-12 record. They sit in third place in the Atlantic Division (six games behind the first-place Knicks) and are in eighth place in the Eastern...
8 a.m. ET: There are three-game losing streaks, and then there is the type of three-game losing streak the Celtics bring with them back to Boston on Wednesday. The Celtics went winless on their road trip to Houston, San Antonio and Chicago, failing to crack 90 points in any game and letting all three opponents reach triple-digits in scoring. It was almost as ugly as those green-and...
I know it's part of the NBA collective bargaining agreement for players to do a lot of this charity stuff, but I still love seeing it. Nice to see this side of Kevin Garnett as well.

Not every team gets the honor of playing on Christmas Day, but the Boston Celtics do. This Tuesday the veteran Celtics will hit the road in a festive matchup with the Brooklyn Nets. Bet on the NBA tradition when the celebrating franchises pull out their limited-edition holiday jerseys at the Barclays Center.

Jason Terry has been trying to become one of the vocal leaders of the Boston Celtics since coming to the team this past offseason, but by the numbers it doesn’t appear he has been all that effective. The Celtics are 13-12 and have been incredibly inconsistent, both offensively and defensively. Terry’s play has been the same.

I read what everyone’s saying.
I’ve had public and private conversations with people who, despite what decades of history has taught us, are giving up on this team before Christmas.
And I’ve determined, once again, that I’ve got to be Mr. Happy Pants around here. So here we are… for what feels like the fifth year in a row… needing a pep talk.
Ok, here it is.
Every morning, we will give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.

It had been six or seven years since TNT had broadcasted a Minnesota Timberwolves game.
Kevin Garnett had long been a fixture that made the Timberwolves relevant. But as the team fell apart and the franchise eventually moved Garnett on to a new home, the Timberwolves...
Jason Collins earned praise from Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett after his first start.
