8 a.m. ET: There are three-game losing streaks, and then there is the type of three-game losing streak the Celtics bring with them back to Boston on Wednesday. The Celtics went winless on their road trip to Houston, San Antonio and Chicago, failing to crack 90 points in any game and letting all three opponents reach triple-digits in scoring. It was almost as ugly as those green-and-black things the Celtics call their alternate uniforms.
Next up is the Cleveland Cavaliers, whose 5-20 record suggests this game should be a walkover for the Celtics (12-12). The Cavs are a tricky bunch, though. Led by second-year point guard Kyrie Irving, the Cavs have lost close games to the Knicks, Grizzlies and Heat, yet have been blown out by the Timberwolves and the Pistons. They are coming off a 113-99 loss to the horrid Raptors in which Toronto sub Amir Johnson almost outscored Cleveland’s entire bench on his own.
In other words, the Cavs should not be taken lightly, because the Celtics have no wa...

Well this is a good thing. Per the Celts official twitter:
Doc: "Avery had a practice the other day in Chicago and half the team was asking, 'Why is he not playing tomorrow?' He was that good."

BOSTON — When someone thinks of Shaquille O’Neal and Tim Duncan, Jason Collins does not usually come to mind. Yet he has battled all of the great big men of his era over the years, digging in and giving fouls while knowing he is not the player who people paid to see.
Now in his 12th year as a pro, Collins is finally playing with one of those great big men, rather than against...
The Celtics lost again on Tuesday night, something that has become quite the trend through the first quarter of the NBA season.
The C’s, who were one game from the NBA Finals, just a few months ago, now find themselves sitting at .500 with a 12-12 record. They sit in third place in the Atlantic Division (six games behind the first-place Knicks) and are in eighth place in the Eastern...
Jason Terry has been trying to become one of the vocal leaders of the Boston Celtics since coming to the team this past offseason, but by the numbers it doesn’t appear he has been all that effective. The Celtics are 13-12 and have been incredibly inconsistent, both offensively and defensively. Terry’s play has been the same.
Paul Pierce scored a season-high 40 points on Wednesday...
I read what everyone’s saying.
I’ve had public and private conversations with people who, despite what decades of history has taught us, are giving up on this team before Christmas.
And I’ve determined, once again, that I’ve got to be Mr. Happy Pants around here. So here we are… for what feels like the fifth year in a row… needing a pep talk.
Ok, here it is.

Another game, another Celtics loss. It's not time to panic but I sure would love to see them get it together. Bulls fans display their usual Rondo hatred and there's the obligatory wheelchair mention. I've highlighted my favorites in bold. What are yours?
I don't know about tonight, but we will beat these dudes in the post season if we meet.
