Found March 10, 2013 on Celtics Life:
The Boston Celtics lose to the Thunder, 91 to 79. Paul Pierce had 20 points along with 6 assists and 4 rebounds. Kevin Garnett shot very poorly, 5 for 18 from the field. Kevin Durant got 11 free throws to go for 23 points. My boy Jeff Green though had another MONSTER SLAM. I feel like we could have won this game, we never gave up and we continued to fight. The Celtics were an 11 point underdog going into this one and we made it close the whole game. If Garnett makes a couple more shots, who knows what could have been. The Thunder move 1 game behind the Spurs for first place in the Western Conference. The Celtics next game is Tuesday against the Bobcats, revenge game. Follow Terry P here

5 Things Celtics must do to win - Hawks 3/8

After their thrilling win over the Pacers, the Celtics will head home for a meeting with the Hawks. The Hawks currently sit a game ahead of Boston for the six seed in the east, so this one will be very important. Recently, the C's have looked unbeatable at home, and I kinda expect that to continue.

Bradley, Green and Rondo could lead the Celtics into a new era?

Rondo and Bradley form a talented but undersized backcourt. The title of this post might have you questioning my sanity, which might be justified, but hear me out.
