Courtney Lee Just Getting His Legs Under Him

We all expect Courtney Lee to be a big part of the team's success this season. So far, in the preseason, his shoot has been short much of the time as he has hit just 4 of 15 shots from beyond the arc. For a player who has shot almost 40% from beyond the arc over his career, his inability to hit from deep this season so far has been a bit puzzling. But the Herald posted a...

Photo Gallery: Celtics vs Nets

Celtics fans finally got to see some great hoops last night as the C’s outlasted the Nets 115-85 in Brooklyn. One of the hot topics on Twitter was Jeff Green’s choice of kicks. He wore the Volt/Gorge Green Nike Hyperfuse 2012 seen in Jose3030′s pic above. If so inclined, you can cop a pair now on Eastbay. Enjoy some pics & GIFs from the game courtesy of Hoop China &...

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...

The Newest Member of The Big Three

Rajon Rondo has been with the Celtics since his rookie year in 2006. He’s been one of the key factors to the Celtics success over the years and has proven himself as one of the better point guards in the game. There have been games such as Game 4 against the Hawks in the first round of the Eastern Conference where Rondo has carried the team to victory. He’s smart, he can score...

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...

This Drunk Dancing Boston Celtics Fan Is Pumped For The NBA Preseason

A.B. Most fans don’t get too excited about the preseason. I doubt this guy is one of them. While he’s polishing his Gino dance moves, the Celtics are trying to polish their game before heading into the regular season. Sporting a hardly excitable 1-3 record thus far, the Celtics starters have looked mediocre at best. But here’s a stat that even the Dancing with the Stars wannabe...

How Danny Ainge Won The Off-Season

The Celtics did not play a single game from June 9th when they came up a quarter short against the Heat in Game 7, until they traveled to Europe last week, but make no mistake, Danny Ainge won the off-season. Let’s flashback to late February for a moment, the C’s were floundering a few games below .500 and the trade deadline was quickly approaching. The Green looked old, slow...

Celtics Live Blog: Jason Terry, C's Head to Upstate New York to Take On Knicks

10 a.m. ET: The end of the exhibition schedule is achingly close for the Celtics now. In nine days they will be introduced in Miami for the open of their regular season. Before the C's can hit South Beach, though, they have a few more preseason dates to get through. One of those is sunny Albany, N.Y., which they visit Saturday to take on the Knicks. The last meeting between...

A Few of the Guys React to Their ESPN Mag Ranking

Earlier today ESPN the Mag released their opinion of where teams rank in the East and West, http://www.celticslife.com/2012/10/espn-mag-ranks-cs-4th-in-east.html. Many of you found it quite funny and some, not so funny. I myself try to find the humor in just about everything in life, so I decided to give my take on how some of the guys might react to their place in the rankings....

Celtics Live Blog: Rajon Rondo, C's Make First Visit to Brooklyn to Take on Nets

9 a.m. ET: Paul Pierce could not have looked much sharper than he did Tuesday, when the Celtics forward scored 29 points in a one-point loss to the Nets. Those same Nets host Pierce and the Celtics on Thursday at the newly minted Barclays Center. This is the sixth of eight preseason games for the Celtics, who are still a long way from knowing exactly what starting lineup and rotation...

Bird’s Rookie Year – Game Five vs Pacers

Justin Barrasso will be perusing the box scores of the Boston Celtics during the Larry Bird years, starting with Bird’s rookie year in 1979-1980. The opportunity to reconnect with the Bird era is always fun, especially during his early years in the league. We’ll be posting the box score as well as some commentary each game day as we re-visit the ’79-’80 season. Enjoy. Celtics...
