Trading places: Green played well against his former team Saying "best win of the season" is cliche. But so far, this was absolutely the best win of the season. The Celtics beat the Thunder 108-100, in a game that was hardly in doubt in the final quarter. The Celtics were led by Paul Pierce who was absolutely on fire, putting up 27 points on 8-16 shooting, and of course Rajon Rondo who had 6 points, 8 boards and 16 assists, with 16 dimes Rondo hit double digits in the assist column for the 36th consecutive game. With one more game in double digits, Rondo will tie John Stockton for the 2nd longest streak in NBA history - crazy stuff. Kendrick Perkins put up a very 'Perk like' 5 points and 7 boards for OKC, while the Thunder were led by Kevin Durant's 29 points, and Russell Westbrook (26-8-7). The C's were able to turn the momentum right before the end of the 1st when they inserted the second unit. The Celtic bench outscored the Thunder bench 22-6 in the ...

Video: Rajon Rondo talks sneakers

Rondo doesn’t care about stats

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.

RAJON RONDOOOOOOO.  Man, I haven’t been so excited over a player on the Celtics since...

Celtics vs Thunder Wrap Up

We finally saw the Jeff Green from the preseason that had been compared to James Worthy. Let's hope that he's here to stay and doesn't regress again. He was aggressive and that's what the Celtics need from him. Along the same lines, we finally saw some aggressiveness from the whole team. They played defense and got stops. They were aggressive going to the basket...

Recap: Celtics give Doc, fans gray hair, but get W in Orlando

The Celtics hold on in Orlando tonight to beat the Magic 116-110 in OT. Looked like the Celtics would continue their stellar play from Friday night early, but a nightmare 3rd quarter where Boston’s defense vanished and Orlando shot the lights out made this a nail biter.

Comments from the Other Side - Spurs 11/21

Spurs fans have the usual Pierce and KG hate. I'm sure the Jason Terry hate comes from his time across the state with the Mavs, but I'm not sure where all the Jeff Green hate comes from on the Spurs boards. I've put my favorite series of comments in bold. What are your favorites? Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving to all the Celtics family. Hate the Celtics with a passion...
