8 a.m. ET: Jason Terry is not the sympathetic type. When he saw teammate Courtney Lee writhing in pain on the floor late in Friday’s loss in Dallas, Terry’s thought was a bit harsh. “Get your [butt] up,” Terry thought to himself, as he told reporters. Lee did not get up, at least not under his own power, and his status for Saturday’s game in Memphis is unclear. If Lee cannot play for the Celtics (36-32), Terry may move into the starting lineup and Terrence Williams and Jordan Crawford will be called upon to fill in off the bench. They have a tall task ahead of them, as the Grizzlies (46-22) are quietly one of the best teams in the NBA. With a hounding defense and a post-heavy offense, the Griz have built the fifth-best record in the Western Conference. They are just a game behind Denver for the No. 3 spot and just a half-game behind the Clippers at No. 4, although that is irrelevant because the Pacific Division-leading Clips would be assured of a top-four seed even if they had an in...

Jason Terry will play his first game in Dallas tonight since leaving the Mavericks to join Boston in the offseason.

Your Morning Dump… Where Courtney Lee has a mild ankle sprain

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. “An initial sprain is always the biggest zing right there when it happens,” Lee said after the Celtics’ 104-94 loss to Dallas. “But hopefully it’s just swelled up a little bit. “I’ll get some medicine...

Video: KG & Pierce discuss surpassing NBA all-time greats

RedsArmy presents Fan Friday #42 : “CelticNation St. Cloud”

Adna is a 20-year old Boston Celtics fan from St. Cloud, Minnesota. I’ve been interacting with her on Twitter for roughly a year, and she is all Celtics, all the time. I asked her a few questions, including just what got her into following the Celtics: I became a Celtics fan in 2001 when I was 9 years old. My aunt lived in Boston and she came to visit my family in Minnesota. When...

Celtics Not Compassionate After Courtney Lee Injures Ankle

Celtics’ Doc Rivers and Jason Terry were less than compassionate Friday night when Courtney Lee was carried off the floor by teammates after spraining his ankle. Boston was in the midst of a comeback against Dallas, down just five with under two minutes remaining in the game when Lee went down with an ankle injury on a possession that left O.J. Mayo wide open for a three-pointer...

DALLAS (AP) -- Dirk Nowitzki scored 22 points, Shawn Marion had a double-double in his return from a calf injury and the Mavericks spoiled Jason Terry's return to Dallas with a 104-94 victory over the Boston Celtics on Friday night.

Mavericks handle Celtics, 104-94

The Mavs spoiled Jason Terry's homecoming.

Shootaround: In the hangar

 Boston Celtics (36-31) vs. Dallas Mavericks (32-36) 8:30 p.m. In some ways, Jason Terry has fit right in with Boston. No, the Celtics are not among the elite in the East anymore (although opponents should still be wary). The season has not quite gone according to plan for Boston. The Playoffs are still going to take place for the Celtics and that is something. Terry...

5 Things Celtics must do to win tonight - Mavericks 3/22

Well, great. Tonight, the Celtics play the Mavericks down in Dallas. Boy, I just can't wait to watch them struggle against another awful team. This last week really only had one hard game scheduled(the Heat game), which they lost. I'm fine with that one, but not the close home wins or the loss in New Orleans. Anyway, if they attempt to follow these five things they might...

Celtics Road Woes Continue with 110-106 Loss to the Grizzlies

Just a few random thoughts for tonight's post game wrap up.  First, KG's injury is troubling.  He didn't seem to injure the foot in the game but they said he was walking gingerly afterwards.   It is being described as a foot injury rather than an ankle injury. And the fact that they are going to take an MRI makes it even more worrisome.    I remember back in that...

Loss to Heat Provides Blueprint to Rediscovering Form

The Boston Celtics-Miami Heat matchup had it all. One team came in boasting a historical winning streak, while the other continued to defy the odds with every passing week. One team sat atop the Eastern Conference, while the other was busy fighting and clawing its way up the standings. One team featured arguably the best player in the NBA right now, while the other featured a former...

Garnett, Lee, Gasol to miss Celtics-Grizzlies game

The Celtics said Kevin Garnett and Courtney Lee are expected to miss Saturday night's game against the Memphis Grizzlies with left ankle injuries. The Grizzlies said center Marc Gasol will sit out with an abdominal tear, and coach Lionel Hollins said forward Zach Randolph won't start because of an internal matter. Randolph is the team's leading rebounder at 11.6 boards...

The Hangover Continues: Celtics Sluggish In Another Road Defeat

Mavericks 104, Celtics 94 While most basketball fans tuned into the second day of what is sure to be an electrifying NCAA Tournament, the Celtics (36-32) continued to struggle. For the first time since Rajon Rondo tore his ACL on January 27th, this team has lost three straight contests, and they appeared particularly out of sync during Friday night’s loss in Dallas. Boston is now...
