Found March 20, 2013 on Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
After Monday night's depressing loss to Miami, the Celtics will hit the road tonight for a matchup with the New Orleans Hornets. This will be the second time these two meet, with the first being a win for the Hornets at the Garden. I consider this one to be an absolute must win. If they drop this one, they will be in some deep sh*t. Here are tonight's five things: 5. DON'T HAVE BASS TAKE THE BIG SHOTS: I know that I just recently said that Bass should shoot more, but not in big-game situations. Late in the loss to the Heat, Bass got the ball and missed a layup. Please don't let this happen again. 4. DON'T IGNORE THE PRESS: This happened a ton against Miami. The Heat would press and the Celtics wouldn't even acknowledge it. Miami would have a 4-on-1 advantage and easily steal the ball and convert it into a bucket. 3. DON'T LET CRAWFORD SHOOT THREES: In my opinion, Jordan Crawford is a solid player. But he should never shoot threes. If there's one thing we learned about him on Monday, it's that his shot isn't that good. Limit him to long twos. 2. NO DUMB SHOTS: I'm talking to you, Paul Pierce. You, the supposed leader of this team, took the most selfish and stupid shot I have ever seen on that last possession. NEVER DO THAT AGAIN. 1. MORE DETERMINATION: Monday's fourth quarter was definitely one to forget. With a little bit of smart play, they could've dribbled the clock out. In extreme desperation, I ask the Celtics to play hard for 48 minutes, not just 40. This isn't college. Tip-off for tonight's game will be at 8:00 pm ET. You can see it on CSN-NE.

Jason Terry selling Mercer Island mansion for $2.5 million (PICS)

Jason Terry thinks so highly of his Seattle, Washington roots that he has his old area code, 206, tattooed on his chest.  But the roots aren’t deep enough to where Terry feels the need to keep a home in the Seattle area. Terry earns his paychecks in Boston these days.  And even though his net worth is roughly $25 million (I’m skepitcal it isn’t more), he doesn’t need houses...

Celtics Sign Shavlik Randolph Through End of Season, Possibly Beyond

The Celtics kept their locker room intact through the end of the season when they announced Thursday that they had agreed to a deal with big man Shavlik Randolph. Randolph, who initially joined the team on a 10-day contract, was signed to a multi-year agreement, although exact terms were not disclosed. Randolph becomes the third 10-day signee to pick up a permanent contract with...

Live Game Updates - Celtics @ Hornets

9:35: The Celtics continued their aggressive play in tonight's first quarter. It could've been better, but I'll still take their current 31-22 lead. Jeff Green is playing well again tonight, leading the C's with 11 points. Pierce has also chipped in 6. Keep watching, this should be a good one.

Heat escape Boston with a 105-103 win; streak hits 23 despite career game from Jeff Green

Ugh. The Celtics, without Kevin Garnett (and Rondo, and Sullinger, and Barbosa..) had the Heat right where they wanted them. They were up 17 in the first half, and 13 with 8:27 to go in the 4th. But they couldn't close the door. Lebron James was too good, scoring 37 points to go with 12 assists and 7 boards for Miami. The Celtics were led by Jeff Green's career high 43 points...

The Prayer List: Jason Terry And Joakim Noah Need Your Well Wishes

Ed’s Note: There are times when dunks, crossovers, insane tackles and other things that can cause extreme embarrassment to players and raucous laughter amongst the consumers of live sports, yet don’t meet the (singular, as in mine, and mine only) criteria of what should be an obituary post. Therefore, I figured I’d try something new. [...]The post The Prayer List: Jason Terry...

Why the Celtics Can Beat the Heat

If I were to ask you at the beginning of the year, if the Celtics could beat the Heat without Rajon Rondo or Kevin Garnett, I am certain that most of you would say no. These are two fundamental players that drive this team and without them, it would be difficult to beat the best of the best. Yet, this past Monday, the Celtics came three points away of ending the Miami Heat’s historical...

Shane Battier Takes Advantage of Paul Pierce’s Backside a Second Time to Inbound Ball (Video)

Paul Pierce is famously difficult to move off his spot, whether he’s playing defense or creating space to get a shot up for himself. But at least one defender has found a way to turn Pierce’s positioning in his favor. Shane Battier iced Miami’s 105-103 victory over the Celtics with a clever inbounds play Monday night. Looking to get the ball in, he saw Pierce’s trenchant...

LeBron James Brandon Knight’ed Jason Terry

LeBron James absolutely crushed a dunk over Jason Terry during the first half of the Celtics and Heat match-up on Monday night.  The poster came only a week after Brandon Knight was dunked on in the same fashion by DeAndre Jordan.  LeBron was also receiving an alley-oop during his massacre of a defender.   Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

LeBron James Gives Jason Terry the Brandon Knight Treatment

I've been looking for it, but I haven't seen it yet. Brandon Knight has to tweet something in regards to the dunk that LeBron James threw down on Jason Terry Monday night. It doesn't have to be much. Something simple like "I guess everyone is going to quit making fun of me now #jasonterry" or some derivation of that would work. The taunting was...

Boston Celtics Prove To Be Tough Opponent Against Miami Heat

Boston Celtics Stirring Effort Not Enough in Loss to Miami Heat   The Boston Celtics didn't deserve to lose on Monday night and they know it. Even the Miami Heat, a team celebrating their 23-game winning streak, knows they should have their heads down in defeat. Once again though it was turnovers that killed the Celtics off. They had an 18-point lead in the first quarter. They...

LeBron James Destroys Jason Terry

LeBron James destroys Jason Terry with a fast break alley-oop jam midway through the second quarter on Monday night. Terry lost the ball before crossing half court and attempted to contest an airborne James from punching home the alley-oop but instead went flying himself and got a post-dunk stare down.

Fans, media remain fascinated with big dunks over small guys

By most accounts, LeBron James is 6-8, 270 lbs. Jason Terry is a modest 6-2, 180 lbs. I would expect James to dunk over Terry 100 out of 100 times. So… why the hell is the NBA blogosphere still buzzing about James’ dunk from last night? I thought we saw the end of this silliness when Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski lauded Brandon Knight for challenging this DeAndre Jordan highlight...
