The good and bad of Courtney Lee’s early-season struggles

We are approaching that wonderful time of year when advanced stats and analysis become most useful. The sample size is large enough to show patterns, but the patterns don’t have to hold for the rest of the season because there are still so many games left. So no stats-heavy article written at this time of year should be calling for drastic changes and overhauls (unless that article...

Rondo The Silent Killer: YOUR 2012-2013 NBA MVP

I just got back from an 8-hour drive this Saturday with only one thing on my mind…except for a couple X-rated things. I just wanted to sit on my couch, watch the Celtics play the not so exciting Raptors. Why would I be so enthralled over one lousy regular season game? The answer has two words. RAJON RONDOOOOOOO.  Man, I haven’t been so excited over a player on the Celtics since...

Paul Pierce and KG - 1995 All American

Just thought I'd share a bit of nostalgia. Above is the 1995 All American High School Slam Dunk Contest featuring Paul Pierce, Kris Clack and Vince Carter. Carter eventually won but The Captain had some impressive dunks as well and made it to the Finals. After the Jump you'll see some of the highlights from the 1995 McDonalds All American game.  This was one of the...

Why Didn't the Boston Celtics Try and Sign Tim Duncan

teammates? Ok, I know, there was no chance of the Boston Celtics signing Tim Duncan last offseason. He is a Spur for life and will probably go down as the best power forward to ever play this game (Kevin Garnett has a thing or two to say about that). Tim Duncan and Greg Popovich are the Tom Brady and Bill Belichick of the NBA, constant winners and always in contention. But all that...

Your Morning Dump… Where I’m thankful there’s room for improvement defensively

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. Based on Synergy Sports numbers, which are tracked on a standardized per-play basis, the Celtics rank 26th in overall defense (0.947 points per play), 30th in transition defense (1.459 ppp), and 16th in half-court...

Celtics Live Blog: Paul Pierce, C’s Aim to Spur Themselves Back Into Winning Form Against San Antonio

8 a.m. ET: Two teams coming off discouraging losses will meet at the TD Garden for what could be an ill-tempered matchup. The Celtics return home fresh off an embarrassing loss to the Pistons on Sunday, while the Spurs visit after suffering a loss to the Clippers that left coach Gregg Popovish embarrassed and enraged. Few teams pride themselves on consistent, professional effort...

Kenyon Martin Talk May Be Premature As Celtics Are In No Hurry to Fill Darko Milicici’s Roster Spot

When Darko Milicic took his leave from the Celtics this week, many fans immediately recognized what that meant. Their team now had an open roster spot, and there was a name on the list of free agents who most of them recognized. Kenyon Martin has become the name du jour for Celtics fans, much like Austin Rivers was the guy everybody wanted to know about in the run-up to the draft...

Rivers blasts Lakers for treatment of Jackson

Boston Celtics Coach Doc Rivers gave his take on the Lakers' coaching change to Chris Russo (SirusXM's Mad Dog Radio) on Tuesday, criticizing the organization for their handling of Phil Jackson. "I didn't like the way it was done," said Rivers. "I don't think you embarrass anybody." After relieving Mike Brown of his coaching duties, the Lakers...

Finley, Dixon and McDyess all preparing for NBA comebacks

Last week it was Juan Dixon. Now Michael Finley wants to call it a comeback. Apparently age is nothing but a number to guys like Dixon (34 years old) and Finley (39 years old) as they still feel like they have something to offer to NBA teams around the league besides a chance to increase a teams’ average age. ESPN.com’s Marc Stein is reporting Finley -- the former...

Boston and San Antonio: Two of a Kind

Celtics Spurs: one of my favorite NBA match-ups. One that features the two preeminent big men of the new millennia as well as two of the league's best coaches. But the similarities don't end there. Both teams feature a trio of All-Stars who have sacrificed scoring, playing time, and salary for the good of their perspective teams. Doc Rivers has praised Gregg Popovich on...

Bird’s Rookie Year – Game 18 vs. the Pacers

Celtics (13-4) vs. Pacers (9-12) Friday, November 23 Boston Garden Just a month after the Celtics dropped their first game of the season in Indiana to the Pacers, Boston looked for a little retribution on their home floor. The Pacers were struggling coming into the Garden, having lost three of the last four.  The Celtics smelled blood against Slick Leonard’s bunch and allowed...

Thunder-Celtics Preview

The Boston Celtics are unhappy with their defense, and now will try to slow down the league's reigning scoring champ. Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder will be in search of a fourth straight win Friday night when they visit the Celtics. Boston (6-6) led the NBA in defensive field-goal percentage last season at 41.9, but that type of defense is a distant memory now...

5 things to watch: Spurs vs. Celtics

The San Antonio Spurs (8-3) will take a trip to Boston as they face the Boston Celtics (6-5) at the TD Garden. The Spurs are coming off a loss to the Clippers and will have to face the Celtics shorthanded. They will be without Kawhi Leonard and Stephen Jackson due to injuries thus leaving their frontcourt very thin. The Celtics are coming off a big loss to the Pistons but...

Top 10 Assists of the Week

Talk about ironic. In the top 10 assists of the week, there isn't one assist from the league's assist leader. However, #2 belongs to Kevin Garnett. Good stuff and fun to watch. [Discuss on CG Forums!]
