Celtics (45-15) vs. Denver (24-40) February 23, 1980 McNichols Sports Arena The Celtics wrapped up a five game road trip by making quick work of the Denver Nuggets, 124-105.  The win improved the C’s to 20-11 on the road. Looking to build another winning streak to help distance themselves in the Atlantic Division and the Eastern Conference, particularly from Philadelphia (44-17), the Celtics relied on a team effort that produced seven scorers in double figures.  There were also three players (Larry Bird, Cedric Maxwell, and Rick Robey) who also recorded double digits in rebounds, as the C’s hit the glass and out-boarded the Nuggets, 58-35.  The Celtics also produced 69 first half points and continued to display their willingness to share the ball, registering 34 assists (nine by Archibald, eight from Bird).

Your Morning Dump… Where Terrence Williams has already opened green eyes

photo credit: Boston Herald 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.

Lakers fan heckles Kevin Garnett by shouting 'Kevin!' over and over again (Video)

In defense of Danny Ainge

I have been away from the internet since the trade deadline passed, but I'm sure there's an outrage somewhere because "Danny Ainge hasn't blown this team up" or that "Danny Ainge didn't make any big moves."

Why Chris Wilcox blocked the deal to Washington

There’s a report out of Washington, DC that the Celtics and Wizards initially agreed on the inclusion of Chris Wilcox in the deal for Jordan Crawford. I can’t blame Wilcox for blocking the deal. One, he won’t get a chance at the playoffs in Washington. Two, waiving Bird rights could cost him money. [link] The Larry Bird exception allows an NBA team to spend above its cap number...

The Blazers, who are just 25-30, are a great 17-9 at home while they are just 8-21 on the road. Tonight will be a really tough one. In my opinion, it will be the hardest game to win of this whole road trip. They will have to start good and end good if they want to end up on top.
