Found March 09, 2013 on Celtics Life:
We'll see you again soon? On Wednesday in Indiana the Celtics trailed by as many as 14 points to the Pacers, but went on a very impressive 11-0 run over the final 4:35 of the 4th quarter in order to complete their come from behind 83-81 victory.  Shortly thereafter the Lakers closed out their game in New Orleans with a 20-0 run over the last 6:47.  They knocked off the Hornets 108-102 after having been down by 25 points. Last night at the Garden Boston fell 4 points behind the Hawks in overtime.  They were able to pull off the 107-102 OT win due to a trio of consecutive huge three pointers in a two minute span; Jeff Green's fortuitous bounce that rattled in to give the C's a 99-98 lead, Paul Pierce's deep 27-footer with a hand in his face a minute later, and the tiebreaking clincher from Jason Terry with 35 seconds to go. A few hours later at Staples Center the Lakers trailed the Raptors by 5 with two minutes remaining.  Kobe Bryant would then hit 3 three pointers...

Jason Terry Soars in Fighter Jet Inspired Reeboks

Jason Terry soared last night in a Fighter Jet inspired pair of the Reebok Sublite Pro Rise. The upper featured a camouflage print with fighter jet detailing. This is not the first time Reebok has made an airplane inspired shoe for the Jet. While in Dallas, Reebok made a custom Jet inspired pair of the ZigSlash. No word if this special pair of the Sublite Pro Rise will hit retailers...

Paul Pierce ‘Wouldn’t Give Any Negative Backlash’ If Celtics Buy Him Out This Offseason

Unthinkable as it may seem given his recent stellar play, Paul Pierce will one day play his final game in a Celtics uniform. That could be as soon as this summer, in fact. The Celtics have a $5 million buyout in Pierce’s contract, which becomes guaranteed for more than $15 million if he is still on the roster come July. The team therefore has to decide whether the $10 million savings...

Paul Pierce goes on the record, says he wants to see the Heat in the playoffs

The Miami Heat are the best team in basketball. Whether you love them (doubtful if you're reading this), hate them (quite likely if you're reading this), respect them, or not - they have proven it. They are the defending champs, have the best winning percentage in basketball, and are in the midst of an 18 game winning streak; the longest such streak in the NBA this season...

Your Morning Dump… Where Jason Terry was like glue

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. On Friday, Korver finished with 3 points on 1-for-5 shooting in 38 minutes as he was blanketed by the energetic Terry. “Listen, Jason had 19 points, but I thought the thing he did better than anything was he...

Cold as ice: Oklahoma City Thunder beat Boston Celtics 91-79

Jeff Green's return to Oklahoma City was less than stellar.The worst part about this afternoon’s loss was the defense.I don’t mean that the defense was bad. It was fantastic. Kevin Durant shot just 6-16 from the field. Russell Westbrook managed just 11 field goal attempts. The Thunder overall were 44% from the field and 25% from 3-point range. The Celtics were on point throughout...

Celtics Cannot Hope to Contend With Elite Teams Like Thunder If High Turnover Rate Continues

Jason Terry‘s pass was not great, but it could have been caught. Perhaps it should have been caught. It was not, though, and that said everything about the Celtics’ loss to the Thunder on Sunday. As the Celtics guard dribbled down the lane on a three-on-two break late in the first quarter, he tried to dish off to Chris Wilcox moving ahead of him on the left. The bounce pass was...

Celtics Hang On To Beat Hawks In Overtime For Fifth Straight Win

Celtics 107, Hawks 102 (OT) Two months ago Jason Terry dubbed the Celtics bench “The Gangster Squad.” It was a somewhat dubious nickname for a unit that was very inconsistent at the time, handed out by a player who was struggling to find his role with a new team, and may have come across as meaningless bluster considering Boston was hovering around five hundred in January. Yet...

Doc rips team over shot selection

The Boston Celtics took care of business on the defensive end Sunday in a 91-79 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, but weren't successful on the offensive end. The Celtics held the Thunder to 44.1 percent shooting and didn't let 

Comments from the Other Side - Hawks 3/8

It always amazes me when there is a team like the Hawks that is playing well and yet their fans aren't really behind them.    Unlike the Raptors, who aren't playing so well, yet have over a hundred pages on  3 or 4 different boards,  it's hard to find an active game thread for the Hawks.  I mean, even the Bobcats have a more loyal following than the Hawks.  I say...

Celtics 107, Hawks 102, OT

Jason Terry hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 35 seconds left in overtime and the Boston Celtics rallied after blowing a big lead in regulation and beat the Atlanta Hawks 107-102 on Friday night.

Celtics Soar Back to Boston: Get Important Win Over the Hawks!

The Boston Celtics have been soaring through their schedule the past week and more importantly have been walking away with much needed wins. The scenario was no different Friday night back in Boston where they went into an overtime thriller with the Atlanta Hawks before coming away with the 107-102 win! The win must have been especially gratifying for Coach Doc Rivers who had a long...

Back Alley Brawl

There is no love lost between the Atlanta Hawks and Boston Celtics.  Ever since the teams clashed through seven hard-fought games in the first round of the 2008 Playoffs, it seems, both teams have had each others' number.  There have been matchups, dustups and confrontations - with notable incidents involving Paul Pierce and Al Horford, Jeff Teague and Ray Allen (to which KG...
