Found October 14, 2012 on Celtics Life:
Sometimes gifts come at the most unexpected times, and as the proverbial saying goes, "don't look a gift-horse in the mouth" and  the Celtics are not one to look a gift-horse in the mouth.  The Celtics have been gifted with young veterans’ like Courtney Lee and Jeff Green; as well as, rookies Jared Sullinger and Dionte Christmas. Christmas was able to showcase not only his shooting talent, but demonstrated marked improvement in his overall play.  It is very hard for any rookie, particularly an undrafted one to earn Doc Rivers’ trust.  In the waning minutes of Saturday’s preseason game, there he was attempting to organize the final play. The previous hhad penetrated the lane and found a wide open Micah Downs for an uncontested layup. Downs happened to miss, but it shows his understanding of NBA schemes. The Celtic’s newest shooting guard in his postgame interview told ESPN’S Greg Payne, "I mean, coach has that confidence in me. Sometimes he called me over and told...

Celtics Lose to Sixers 107-75 - Nothing To See Here

Not much to say about this one except to learn from it and move on. The Celtics stayed within 2 in the first quarter but after that, it wasn't even close.

That's one thing they have to solve before the season starts because...

Preseason Gives Celtics Bench a Chance to Shine

To paraphrase Allen Iverson “Preseason... we talkin bout preseason... not a real game but preseason.” That is what we are relegated to; fawning about the preseason because of last year's shortened season and even shorter preseason.  It affected the Celtics the most, leaving them running on fumes and little to no help from their bench.  A bench who found itself persona non...

Celtics formed Wolfpack overseas

Jason Terry will be posting an online diary up on ESPN Boston. Here's a snippet from his first entry: The funniest moment on the trip was we were attracting a lot of attention because of KG's [Kevin Garnett] size. He's so tall that they recognized him easily.
