Rookie Jared Sullinger Ties his Season Best   The Boston Celtics, a team stuck in the mud for some of November and all of December, who have seemingly lost the defensive mentality they once held so dearly, who have been unable connect on the court or show any sign of team chemistry, have a little [...]

Jared Sullinger a starter soon? It would make sense

Over at MassLive.com, where Celtics Town authoritarian dictator (just kidding) Jay King gets paid to write about sports, Jay posted an interesting article on how Boston’s full-team plus/minus improves immensely when Jared Sullinger plays with the starters in place of Brandon Bass and/or Jason Collins.From Masslive.com:“Consider this: During the 197 minutes when Sullinger has...

Celtics 93, Nets 76: A nice stocking stuffer

For Christmas, at least, the Celtics played well. Jared Sullinger solidified himself as my hero, Rajon Rondo continued to show more aggression as a scorer, Gerald Wallace may or may not have wanted to brawl, Deron Williams (and Joe Johnson) used to be a lot better, and I don’t know if I said this before, but Sullinger’s my hero.I would write more, but I’m going to see Les Miserables...

Kevin Garnett: “He just jacked my shorts”

In the Celtics early start on Christmas Day, CSN viewers were surrounded with holiday spirit, including anecdotal stories of KG buying Scal a Louis Vuitton suitcase, and Keyon Dooling dishing out holiday cheer like it he was playing point guard again.  Then things became reminiscent of the last meeting between Brooklyn and Boston when Gerald Wallace and Kevin Garnett got a little...

Your Morning Dump..Where The Celtics look for some game

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 love that title, because the C’s sure have looked like they’ve had none at times this year. And as a Celtics fan, I expect the best every year, and we just haven’t seen it yet. So what’s it going to take...

Can Celtics surge like last season?

After spending four years crafting a reputation as one of the NBA's best teams in November and December, the Boston Celtics have found the last two seasons to be rather unkind when it comes to getting out of the blocks quickly, with early hardship coming to define them in their old age. It started last year when, without a training camp to rely on, coach Doc Rivers' past...

Doc Rivers Compliments Jared Sullinger, Calls Him ‘Big Fat Guy Playing Basketball’

Hopefully the Celtics aren’t sensitive about their weight. Because Doc Rivers certainly doesn’t care. The Celtics’ coach complimented rookie forward Jared Sullinger, and then called him fat. This backhanded compliment came after Sullinger had a career-day on Christmas, going six-for-seven shooting with 16 points and seven rebounds. “Jared was wonderful. He’s such a smart...

Celtics F Wilcox out with sprained thumb

Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers said that forward Chris Wilcox will be out three to four weeks with a sprained right thumb. The team announced Monday that they promoted Jarvis Varnado from Sioux Falls of the D-League to take Wilcox's spot on the roster. Varnado appeared in 10 games for the SkyForce and averaged 14.0 points, 10.0 rebounds and a league-best 3.9 blocks in 30...

Paul Pierce’s Game Ball Gesture to Jason Collins Doubly Appreciated, As Awarding Game Balls Is Rarity in NBA

BOSTON — Paul Pierce gave Jason Collins his game ball, everybody clapped and that was pretty much that. A few days later, Pierce’s token of recognition for the veteran center’s hard work was all but forgotten for many members of the Celtics, who were much more impressed with the 40-point performance that earned Pierce the game ball in the first place. But for Collins, the gesture...

Celtics Sign Shot-Blocking Big Man Jarvis Varnado From NBADL (Video)

The last time the Celtics signed a shot-blocking force from the NBA Development League, he turned out to be a big part of their frontcourt rotation. Jarvis Varnado is no Greg Stiemsma, but it made sense when the Celtics announced Monday that they had signed the 6-foot-9 forward, who played most recently with the Sioux Falls SkyForce in the D-League. Varnado, 24, was a second-round...

Comments from the Other Side - Nets 12/25

Well, this game made my Christmas a bit merrier.  It would have been a lot better if the Lakers and Heat had lost but I'll take a Celtics win any day, especially over these very unlikeable Nets and their fans.  The fact that some of them were complaining about the officiating is laughable, given that they shot 29 free throws to 13 for the Celtics.  Nets fans seem to hate their...

Celtics Capitalize on Favorable Matchups Against Nets to Begin Holiday Road Trip With Win

Nothing is ever promised, but for all the Brooklyn Nets’ improvements in the last year and a half, they figured to remain a reliable victim for the Celtics entering this season. Even after two meetings and two Celtics’ losses, all the ingredients were there to make the Nets a match made in heaven for Boston. They were a slow-paced team that defended poorly and was prone to bad...

Gerald Wallace & Kevin Garnett Receive Double Technicals After Short Tug

Kevin Garnett and Gerald Wallace both received a technical in the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s Christmas Day game after a minor scuffle. Wallace grabbed onto Garnett’s shorts following a shot attempt, something Garnett didn’t respond well to:
