Doc says he doesn't think Bradley will play but isn't ruling him out completely.7 minutes ago via Twitter for iPhoneReplyRetweetFavorite@celticsBoston CelticsAny day now would be a nice time for a Ray Allen revival, no?

Bradley sits out shoot-around

Avery Bradley left Game 4 with the Celtics up 16 in the third.  Over the next nine minutes, the Sixers scored 25 points.   That's an over-simplfication of Bradley's effect on the team.  But it's pretty obvious that Avery Bradley has become a critical part of not only the Celtics defense, but the Celtics offense.  When Bradley is at his best, he's destroying...

With Avery Bradley’s season likely over, reportedly, Celtics quite vulnerable

This had been shaping up to be the year the Boston Celtics were finally unbothered by injury. But Avery Bradley’s shoulder popped out of its socket once too many times, he might undergo surgery any day now, and the Celtics suddenly rest one loss away from a possible end to the Big Three era, or one win away from Ray Allen and his damning bone spurs defending Dwyane Wade for 30...

Bum Shoulder Could End Season For Celtics Guard Avery Bradley

Boston Celtics guard Avery Bradley has most likely made his final appearance on the hardwood for the balance of the season according to a report from “The Boston Globe“; as their sources state that the guard is facing surgery to repair his ailing left shoulder. Bradley’s shoulder reportedly has popped out-of-place during the Celtics second round Playoff match-up against the...

Avery Bradley Dealing With Pain in Both Shoulders, Will Miss Game 5 Against Sixers

Avery Bradley's injury woes appear to have worsened. Celtics head coach Doc Rivers said before Monday's playoff game against the Philadelphia 76ers that Bradley is now experiencing pain in his right shoulder, too. The Celtics guard has been limited since dislocating his left shoulder several times, most recently in Friday's Game 4 against the Sixers in Philadelphia. Bradley...

Doc Rivers says Celtics may need more Bass tonight in response to Game Four loss

There's a whole lot to like about Doc Rivers as the coach for the Boston Celtics. One of those attributes, for me at least, is his candor. If Doc thinks he made a mistake, he'll readily admit as much. He tends to correct those mistakes almost as quickly as he makes them too. Throughout the first three games of the Celtics' series with the Philadelphia 76ers, Boston pushed...

It´s Sasha time

“I told him in our exit meetings that his talent is in him, it’s all between his ears. I think he can be a really good player. He’s still relatively young and so we’re going to try to get him out of him.” Doc Rivers Facing a potential elimination against the Sixers may not be the most indicated moment to experiment with the lineups, but Doc Rivers may be forced to do...

Ray Allen felt a better rhythm in Game 6

Think back to the Oklahoma City Thunder defeat right before the All-Star break. A team-building game, Doc Rivers called it. There’s no such thing as a team-building 15-point loss, the crowd shouted back at him. Not for these Boston Celtics.Flash forward to Game 6. A rhythm-builder, Ray Allen called it. There’s no such thing as a rhythm-building 4-for-11 from the field, including...

Celtics Can’t Finish Off Philly, Play Game Seven on Saturday

In as frustrating and disappointing a performance as we’ve seen in some time, the Celtics just could not get things going last night in game six and lost to the 76ers 82-75. I can be reactionary at times, but I don’t think I’m doing that when I am concerned, not about the Eastern Conference Finals, but about game seven on Saturday night. The Sixers have played the Celtics very...

CLNS Live on NBA TV!

CLNS Locker Room Reporter Jared Weiss asked questions live on NBA TV after game 5. CLNS asked Bass about the six point swing in the middle of the third quarter that got the Celtics their first lead since the middle of the first. CLNS asked Doc Rivers about the gameplan to go to Kevin Garnett [...]

Rajon Rondo Hits Wall at Worst Time for Celtics, Who Need of Guard to Step Up

PHILADELPHIA -- Like a dad handing over the car keys to his son on prom night, Celtics coach Doc Rivers placed his team's fate in Rajon Rondo's hands on Wednesday. It was time to trust the point guard. Instead of triumphantly justifying Rivers' decision, however, Rondo ground the gears, spilled soda on the upholstery and returned the family sedan with a big scratch on...

Comments from the other side - Sixers Game 5 5/21

 When the Celtics decide to play, they clearly are the better team. It's a shame they don't come to play more often.  It could make things so much easier for them.  Cracks me up that they get upset with people bashing their team but yet their own fans constantly bash their team and every player on it.  Their hate for Hawes is way worse than for any Celtics player it seems...
