QuickVid: You silly Rondo, tricks are for kids

Throughout the season, you’ve probably noticed Rajon Rondo and the Celtics having some fun when they win the opening game tip-off. From KG hiking the ball to Rondo after the tip to Rondo heading the ball off the bounce, Rondo keeps things interesting after every tip-off. Today, MrTrpleDouble10, who has become well-known among Celtics fans [...]

Boston boy who had close call meets Celtics' hero

The Boston third-grader who narrowly missed a bullet that came through his bedroom wall and left a smoking hole in his Boston Celtics jersey has met the player whose shirt he was wearing. Preston Jackson and his family attended Tuesday night's Celtics game against the Miami Heat, where they met Rajon Rondo. Rondo says he couldn't believe the stories he heard of Preston...

Celtics 87, Bucks 74: Celtics conclude regular season with win

Ryan Hollins resembled a superstar, E’Twaun Moore tickled the nets and Rajon Rondo officially became the first Celtics point guard to lead the NBA in assists since Bob Cousy in 1960, but Boston’s regular season-concluding victory against the Milwaukee Bucks was most important for one takeaway: The injured Celtics, with the exception of Ray Allen, are healthy.Professional basketball...

All four injured Celtics — Rajon Rondo, Mickael Pietrus, Greg Stiemsma and Ray Allen — missed shootaround this morning as the Celtics prepared to meet the Miami Heat on national television, according to CSNNE’s A. Sherrod Blakely.Though I assume TNT people aren’t overly excited to hear that at least half of Boston’s top eight players will miss tonight’s game, Doc Rivers...

Kevin Garnett, Celtics Feel Fresh for Playoffs, Showing Late-Season Rest Was Worth It

BOSTON -- The first question to nearly every Celtics player in the locker room on Thursday was, "How do you feel?" Dr. Phil had not infiltrated the media pack. Nobody was searching for the source of Kevin Garnett's intensity from his childhood. Postgame interviews had not been replaced with psychologist's sessions. With every member of the Celtics' regular starting...

Kevin Garnett added to long Boston Celtics injury list; Rondo, Pietrus, Allen, Stiemsma also out against Heat

BOSTON — As Doc Rivers mentioned Tuesday before the Boston Celtics meet the Miami Heat, it’s easier to say who is playing for the Celtics during these dog days at the end of the zany lockout season, rather than trying to rattle off all the stars who won’t suit up. And so it took just one first [...]

Ray Allen, Greg Stiemsma miss shootaround, likely out tonight

Twitter / @SherrodbCSN: #CelticsTalk: #Celtics off ... via kwout Ray was out there, according to Gary Washburn, but in running shoes.  Maybe that means he's closer, maybe not.  I'm sure Greg Stiemsma got some shots up, but he's dealing with plantar fasciitis and there's no need to run him out there against the Bucks.   The...

Stiemsma, Ray definitely out tonight

Greg Stiemsma's been battling foot issues for a while now, so this is no surprise.  A. Sherrod Blakely reports Stiemsma is joining Ray Allen on the bench tonight for sure. Rondo was considered possible for tonight, but there were some conflicting reports out of practice.  One report from CSNNE's Carolyn Manno was that Rondo is suffering back spasms and he wasn'...

Ray Allen No More Than 'Probable' to Play for Celtics in Playoff Opener (Video)

BOSTON -- Doc Rivers has been hopeful for weeks that Ray Allen would return before the regular season ended. With Allen out of the lineup for Thursday's season finale against the Milwaukee Bucks, that scenario is no longer possible, and a full return for Game 1 of the Celtics' first-round playoff series against the Hawks is not likely. Rivers, using a football term, called...

Celtics' Allen still dealing with ankle injury

The Boston Celtics are limping into the playoffs. Mikael Pietrus, Rajon Rondo, and Greg Stiemsma have all been hit by the injury bug but should be ready come playoff time, however, a huge cog in the Cetics' machine, Ray Allen, is still dealing with nagging bone spurs in his ankle. “The other day when it swelled,” Allen said, “they say they could be the size of a grain...

On Steve Nash, the potential end of an era, and similarities to Kevin Garnett

Steve Nash didn’t play his entire career with the Phoenix Suns. He actually sucked, at least relative to what he would become, during his first stint in Arizona. Nobody saw a future MVP blooming when a rookie Nash averaged just 3.3 points and 2.1 assists per game in 1996-97. Nobody foresaw that 15 years into the future, the entire city, or at least so it seemed, would stand on...

Celtics Practice Notes Before Playoff Series Versus Atlanta

All about banner 18 in one last run with the Big 3 --- errr, I mean big 4 The chase to banner number 18 will begin Sunday in Atlanta.  Before leaving, the Celtics held a practice on Friday afternoon with near perfect attendance heading into the playoffs. Ray Allen, still hobbled by his sore right ankle, did some light shooting before practice and some free-throw shooting at the...

Kevin Garnett, Ryan Hollins (?) among NBA’s dirtiest players, according to SI poll

When I think of Kevin Garnett, impeccable post footwork, unselfishness, endangered basket stanchions, silky midrange jumpers, streams of unfiltered cuss words, bulging veins and occasionally misplaced (or, more likely, well-placed) elbows come to mind. When I think of Ryan Hollins, my mind skips immediately to rebounding, or rather a frustrating lack thereof, alley-oops, underrated...
