Boston Celtics Fall To Philadelphia 76ers In Preseason Finale

76ers 88 – Celtics 79 The Boston Celtics drop their last preseason game against the Philadelphia 76ers in Boston. This preseason, Jeff Green has gone above and beyond the call of duty and proved just why he deserves his contract after sitting out the entirety of last season. Green’s trend did not stop tonight in [...]

Welcome to the first edition of the Celtics Green Weekly Recap. In this first installment, we will examine the highs and lows of the previous week and summarize the overall state of Celtics Nation. We will also take a quick look at news around our favorite league, and maybe throw in a bit of fun stuff as well. Let’s get started: ·         Preseason blues: The start...

Comments from the other side - Knicks 10/20

It's interesting how each fan base is different as far as which Celtics they dislike the most.  Chicago, it's Rondo.  The Nets, it's Courtney Lee.  Knicks fans seem to hate Jason Terry.  But they all hate the Celtics, so there's that.  I think my favorite comment this time was the guy whose phone auto-corrected Amare to Amateur, and they agreed that it was...

Jeff Green and Jason Terry Lead the Boston Celtics to a 109 – 98 Preseason Win Over the New York Knicks

Jeff Green and Jason Terry Lead the Celtics’ rally from a 20-point deficit to a 109 – 98 Preseason Win Over the New York Knicks. If Jeff Green can keep up his efficient scoring pace, he might not have to ask James Worthy for permission to use his nickname. Too soon? Probably, but as the [...]

Your Morning Dump… Why Jared Sullinger deserves to be a starter

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. And yet, through six preseason games, Sullinger has stood out both for his on-court play — 11 points, 7 rebounds, 56 percent shooting in 25 minutes — and for his demeanor. His notoriously hard to impress veteran...

It's a Fast Break!

What I have enjoyed the most this preseason is watching the Celtics fast breaks. For the first time, Rondo has multiple options on the break instead of getting the ball up court quickly and then having to dribble around while he waits for the rest of the team to get in place. The play above has Paul Pierce running ahead and getting the hoop. More than likely, he won't be...

Leandro Barbosa Ready to Play Good Soldier In Celtics' Stacked Backcourt Rotation

BOSTON -- Throughout training camp and the preseason, the Celtics saluted Jason Terry, Courtney Lee and others for sacrificing minutes and shots for the shot at a championship. When Terry signed, he assumed he would split time at shooting guard with Ray Allen and Avery Bradley. When Lee agreed to a sign-and-trade from Houston, he was aware of players ahead of him in Boston'...

GM Survey Gives Celtics Some Credit

The results of the annual GM survey were published today, and two teams, who are coincidentially our biggest rivals, were in the spotlight. This could either be good news or bad news depending on your perspective. Personally, I like it more when the rivals get such attention because it adds to the pleasure of beating them. Before diving into the results, I'd like to remind you...

Comments from the other side - Sixers 10/21

Sixers fans seem to have a lot of hate for Tommy Heinsohn.  I wonder if they realize that Tommy has 10 championship rings and therefore is entitled to say whatever he wants about basketball.  There was also some KG hate in this game.  My favorite comment was the one stating that Celtics games should be R Rated because of what the on-court microphones pick up.  He may have...

Celtics fan favorite and CSNNE reporter Brian Scalabrine previews the upcoming season.

Celtics Live Blog: Leandro Barbosa's Boston Debut Delayed By Visa Problems as C's Host Sixers

6:58 p.m.: Leandro Barbosa's anticipated debut in a Celtics uniform has been delayed by the pesky state department. Apparently there are some visa issues for the Brazilian national to clear before he can don the green and white in an actual game. Barbosa warmed up prior to the game and spoke to reporters while wearing practice gear, but he joined Darko Milicic and Chris Wilcox...

Celtics drop preseason finale 88-79

In the final game of the preseason, the Celtics lose to the Philadelphia 76ers 88-79 (box score), as the Celtics take the next nine days to prepare for opening night against the Miami Heat.  Here are some notes from the game:Celtics brought out an interesting starting lineup in Rondo, Pierce, Green, Bass and Garnett.  Bass and Pierce both play despite their small physical ailments...

Celtics vs. Knicks Preview

  The Boston Celtics (2-4) “host” the New York Knicks (2-1) at 7:30 pm tonight at the Times Union Center in Albany, NY.  The game will be broadcast on CSNNE and WEEI.  Despite being played in the state of New York, on the schedule it’s listed as a home game for the Celtics.  Exactly one [...]

Jeff Green's Contract Drawing Unwarranted Criticism as Forward Is Brightest Star for Celtics So Far

BOSTON -- There sat Jeff Green, feet plunged in ice, plotting the demise of the Boston Celtics from his cubby in the corner of the locker room. He was so nefarious, cracking jokes with teammates as though it were the most innocent thing in the world, all the while hiding his role in the downfall of the winningest organization in the NBA. If Green comes across as just some 26...

On Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo and the way the media shapes our understanding of professional athletes

This story isn’t meant to be primarily about Ray Allen, though he will stand as the prominent example in an inner debate I’m having with regards to a media phenomenon.My theory: Our views of athletes are distorted by the amount of time (and amount of friendliness with which) they speak to the media. Because Allen spent 15 minutes before every game holding court with reporters...
