Can Keyon Dooling really help the Celtics?

Chris Forsberg, ESPN Boston Dooling is confident he can aid this team's playoff quest and he's trying to prove it with his recent play. "Obviously when you come back from injury and don't feel great, you have to earn the trust of the coach," he said. "I think Doc is really starting to trust me, and I'm starting to kinda feel what he wants from...

After beating Utah Jazz, Boston Celtics still grinding

Boston – Brandon Bass’ arms are a canvas that sports many tattoos, but after the Boston Celtics held on for a gritty 94-82 victory against the Utah Jazz Wednesday night at the TD Garden, he pointed at just one. “See that?” he prompted. “See that?” The tattoo read “grind,” which Bass said has been his [...]

Ray Allen: The ankle feels good

Sherrod Blakely has an update on Ray Allen's ankle: "It feels good; it feels fine," Allen said. "I'll know a little better later on."

Doc Rivers Believes Son Austin Rivers is Ready for NBA, Time Spent in College Has No Bearing on Players' Pro Career (Video)

Doc Rivers is one of the most highly respected coaches in the NBA. So when he talks about a player's potential or league rules, people usually listen.

Garnett Double-Double Leads Celtics Over Jazz

The Celtics got another all important win coming down the homestretch of the regular season.

Doc Rivers Could Have Sensitive Issue on His Hands If He Elects to Rest Celtics Veterans Down the Stretch

BOSTON -- One of these days, Kevin Garnett may have to sit out a game. Garnett won't like it -- he has played in 47 out of a possible 50 games this season, after all, and has appeared in more than 90 percent of his team's games in 12 separate seasons -- but eventually Celtics coach Doc Rivers is going to have to break the bad news to his veteran non-center. If it becomes...

Kevin Garnett Steadily Wins Battle With Kevin Love in Celtics' Victory Over Timberwolves

In these mano a mano battles between the aging, all-time great and the budding star, there is often a moment that illustrates the whole story. Either the grizzled vet makes some savvy move to prove he's not finished yet, or the young buck leaves the legend in his wake in a resounding declaration that the future has arrived. There was really no moment like that on Friday, though...

Danny Ainge might receive interest from Portland Trail Blazers

Danny Ainge has done a fine job this season walking a tight rope between maintaining competitiveness this year and keeping the Boston Celtics poised to rebuild (or reload, hopefully) once the summer hits. Not every move he made this offseason worked (see: Dooling, Keyon) but enough worked that Boston, despite aging another year and losing three players to season-ending maladies...

Celtics-Timberwolves Preview

The Boston Celtics have a lengthy win streak over the Minnesota Timberwolves in small part because they've limited Kevin Love's scoring when he's been healthy enough to play.
