Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
After beating the Magic in thrilling fashion last night, the Celtics will continue their tour of Florida tonight when they head to the bad part of the state: Miami. So far this season, the Miami Heat have, of course, been great, winning 4 out of their first 6 games. While a Celtic victory in this one would just be amazing, it probably won't happen. Unfortunately, the bandwagon fans of South Beach will probably be able to celebrate after the final buzzer of this contest sounds. But still, I'll watch it. Here are tonight's five things:5. KEEP SPREADING OUT THE SCORING:In my opinion, the reason why the Celtics won last night was because they spread out their scoring. They didn't have just one guy doing all the work, they had almost their whole team scoring evenly. For example, Bass had 16, Bradley had 14, Crawford and Lee had 13, Sullinger had 11, Green had 10, and Olynyk had 8. If they can do that again, they'll at least almost win. 4. LET HUMPHRIES PLAY:Kris Humphries is a great player who I was excited to watch play this season. But, for some reason, he's never playing. So Stevens, you wanna let the guy on the court?3. HOPE GREEN GETS BETTER:In Orlando, Jeff Green scored just 10 points on 5/14 shooting. In his career, Green has showed us that he can play like a superstar, but this season he's just not doing that. He needs to improve his shot. 2. MORE SHOTS FOR WALLACE:Tonight, it will be imperative that Gerald Wallace gets shots. He's one of the few guys on this team with legit experience, so the C's need to let him show them what he can do. 1. HANG AROUND:I know it sounds obvious, but really, if the C's can just head into halftime down by 6 or something they're chances of winning will skyrocket. They don't have to be ahead, they just can't be getting blown out. Anyway, this one'll start tonight at 7:30 pm ET. You can see it on CSN-NE. Make sure to watch it.

If you missed Saturday night’s game between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat you missed one of the more bizarre finishes of the young NBA season. Miami was up by two with less than a second to play in the fourth quarter when Dwyane Wade went to the line for two free throws.
Then this happened.
Green finished the game with 24...

The Boston Celtics may not have Pierce, Garnett, and Rivers, but they're still sticking it to Miami. Jeff Green hit a game-winner to beat the Heat in Miami.
Well, now I that think about, this one was pretty good.
No but seriously, this one was amazing. The Celtics, our Celtics, went into Miami tonight and beat the team everybody outside of Florida hates, 111-110. The C's trailed this one 110-106 with 3.6 seconds left, but you know, forget that. The Celts were gonna win this game if it killed them. And boy could that last statement...
MIAMI -- For "no rivalry," this was as thrilling as it gets.
Jeff Green hit a Ray Allen-like 3-pointer from the right corner at the buzzer to give the Boston Celtics a 111-110 victory against the Miami Heat on Saturday night.
The shot wasn't official until the three referees looked at the play on a TV monitor to verify it was 3-pointer and released before the buzzer...
What a wild finish to the Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics game on Saturday night.

The ball hit the backboard and the Celtics regained possession with 0.6 seconds left on the clock. The...

Brad Stevens is learning to deal with what every NBA coach must as he takes the step from the college game. But beyond the longer schedule and longer games and a schedule designed by the Marquis de Sade Travel Agency, the Celtics leader has yet another challenge.
While most coaches don’t need to worry much about the end of their bench because it’s inhabited by raw youngsters...
Recency bias is a hell of a drug. Everything that just happened is the "best" or "worst" or "most unforgettable" thing that has ever happened. Our mind has a way of tricking us into thinking things that happened more recently are somehow superior to things that happened further in the past. It's just the way our brains work.
Despite knowing that...
Back up the tank for another night, the Celtics have now won two games in a row with a thrilling 91-89 win over the Orlando Magic. C’s Coach Brad Stevens earned his first win on Wednesday night at the Garden, and now has his first winning streak, in Orlando. Those of you that want the Celtics to lose every game will have to wait (probably until tomorrow night) a little longer...
It’s buzzer-beating day in the NBA. Shortly after Jeff Green and the Celtics defeated the Miami Heat, Kyrie Irving delivered this layup to give the Cavaliers a double-overtime win over the Philadelphia 76ers. In double OT, Kyrie hit this layup with .6 seconds left, and Michael Carter-Williams threw away the inbound pass to seal the […]
