Last night the Celtics fell to the Nets (who are legit by the way), while the Celtics were missing Rajon Rondo. But after the game, Coach Johnson had some words about Kevin Garnett and his love/hate relationship with him: “He’s seen so much. We’ll call a play and he’ll say, ‘Joe is going over here and Deron is going here.’ It’s not funny anymore, OK? As much as Rondo quarterbacks their offense, he quarterbacks their defense. … I like every now and then when we’ll surprise him with something, and then maybe he’ll look at the bench and curse the other coaches out, not me.” - Coach Avery Johnson

  Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.   “I’ve always looked at someone as the MVP as someone who makes his player not only better, but is able to dictate the game from different stat-wise, is able to get rebounds, does multiple things for his...

Rajon Rondo Injures Ankle in Celtics Win Over Jazz, Doc Rivers Doesn’t Expect Him to Play 82 Games (Video)

Doc Rivers didn’t seem overly concerned about Rajon Rondo‘s injured ankle following the Celtics’ 98-93 win over the Jazz.

Celtics Live Blog: Kevin Garnett, C’s Hit Up Motown to Play Struggling Pistons

8 a.m. ET: These Pistons are redefining the nickname, “Bad Boys.” Through 10 games, the Pistons are really bad. They lost their first eight games and followed up their first win of the season with a loss to the rebuilding Magic. Greg Monroe is still an improving young big man, but once-key players like Rodney Stuckey and Will Bynum have continued their fall toward irrelevance...

Gino Time! Celtics beat Raptors 107-89

After several grind-it-out style games in a row, Boston desperately needed an easy win. We can debate whether or not a game that was close until the final minutes of the third quarter counts as “easy,” but I think we can all agree that any game in which Pierce and Garnett can comfortably sit the entire fourth quarter is a roaring success.Once you’ve stopped Gino-dancing around...

Comments from the Other Side - Jazz 11/14

Some good stuff from KG hating to Paul Pierce's old man game that was killing them. Of course there are the Tommy haters. Funny that they hate on Tommy for being a homer, but when I watch other teams' announcers it seems that they are just as much homers, as they should be. And of course they hate on their own players... Al, Mo, Foye. Enjoy today's CFTOS. The...
