Celtics (11-3) vs. Jazz (2-15) Friday, November 16 Boston Garden The pre-Jerry Sloan Jazz were no pretty sight.  Coach Tom Nissalke’s team was bad right from the stretch: Utah dropped its first four games, losing the first by 16, the second by 31, and the third by another 15 points.  The team would finish 2-18 in the month of October, with the only victories coming at the expense of the San Diego Clippers (who were missing Bill Walton, whose injury situation will be covered when the Celtics travel to San Diego in December) and an eight point win over Sloan’s Bulls. The Celtics would do the Jazz no favors, coasting to their eighth win in the previous nine games with a 113-97 win in front of 15,320 at the Garden.  The Jazz had a couple of recognizable names of the roster, as both Adrian Dantley and Pete Maravich were among their starting five.  Bernard King, in just his second year out of the University of Tennessee, was injured but on the roster.  The Celts dominated in almost every...

Does Rondo's streak have a home court advantage?

33 games and counting... Rajon Rondo had no trouble extending his string of consecutive double digit assist games to 33 this afternoon.  In fact, he even dropped his tenth dime before halftime.  I am a huge fan of the streak, and I have a sneaking suspicion that the home team's official scorekeeper is as well. While at the Garden over the past couple weeks I've noticed...

Keith Bogans Did not Deserve a Flagrant Foul for his Hit on Leandro Barbosa

Last night’s Celtics/Nets game got a little testy late in the second quarter, when Boston’s Leandro Barbosa appeared to have an easy look at a basket in transition before being grabbed by Brooklyn’s Keith Bogans from behind.  The play appeared to be an obvious candidate for a flagrant foul call, which turned out to actually [...]

POTD 11/15/12: Brook Lopez on Jason Collins

Brook Lopez has the athleticism of a rock.  He leaps like a picnic table, floats like a brick, and dunks with the strength of a six-year-old girl.  He’s about as explosive as wet gunpowder, and his top speed is slower than dial-up internet. Most rocks are far more athletic than Jason Collins.  Honorable mention to Tyson Chandler, who loses because Brook Lopez dunked it backwards...

Game #9 Recap: Boston Celtics Drop Game to Brooklyn Nets, Lose 102-97

COLUMBIA, Md. — Without Rajon Rondo, the Boston Celtics were still able to generate plenty of offense from the guard positions. Leandro Barbosa started in Rondo’s place. Along with Jason Terry and Courtney Lee, Boston’s three healthy guards combined for 40 points and 11 assists. As a team, they shot better than 55% in the [...]

Jazz 83, Wizards 76

Al Jefferson scored 21 points, Gordon Haywood added 15 in his first game as a reserve this season, and the Utah Jazz kept the Washington Wizards winless with an 83-76 victory on Saturday night. The Jazz committed 19 turnovers but pulled away in the fourth quarter while closing a four-game road trip with a sloppy performance - and got away with it because they were playing the Wizards...

Taking Stock: Celtics – Nets

After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value. Starters Offense:      Defense:      Overall: He did a great job of being aggressive.  He’s obviously not Rondo, but he’s just about as fast and any time you can push the tempo and force the defense to react, good things will happen.  Barbosa also...

Comments from the Other Side - Nets 11/16

Two things are certain from the comments. Nets fans hate Courtney Lee. They don't like having more Celtics fans at their games than Nets fans. And, they couldn't deny the fact that they caught several breaks from the refs. They also realize that they lucked out with Rondo's absence. Enjoy today's Comments... No Rondo. Celtics playing the second half of a...

Jason Terry Discovers New, Different Possibilities as Shooter Alongside Rajon Rondo

BOSTON — Jason Terry is not the same old Jet this season. No matter what his shooting percentage may be, the transition in Boston after eight seasons in Dallas has not been seamless. There have been single-digit scoring games, like when he failed to make a basket in a win over Utah. There have been games in which he has been underused, such as the win in Washington when he clocked...

Keyon Dooling is a consummate professional. He played a supporting role for the NBA's Boston Celtics last year, helping them to reach the Eastern Conference Finals before they ultimately fell to the Miami Heat. He played hounding defense, was a leader in the locker room, and never shied away from talking to the media. He was also VP of the NBA Players Association. Before...
