8 a.m. ET: The Detroit Pistons aren't about to strike fear into the hearts of many opponents, as they still occupy last place in the Central Division. After a dismal December January, though, the Pistons have put together a decent run of success in February, going 4-2 entering Tuesday to match their win total from the previous month-plus. Part of Detroit's success comes from avoiding the destructive injuries that have befallen almost every other team. Point guard Will Bynum missed 15 games with an ankle injury and forward Charlie Villanueva is out indefinitely with a sprained right ankle, but nine...

Hustle and Flow... Did Rajon's shooting kill Boston's offense last night?

People (ahem, Chuck) have been getting on Rajon Rondo lately.  Some of it is warranted, some of it isn't.  The latest criticism of him came last night when he either (a) took way too many shots and disrupted the flow of the offense or (b) didn't take enough shots in the 4th quarter and disrupted the flow of the offense.   So went back and looked at every one of his 27...

KG upgraded, Pietrus sounds optimistic for tonight

So after a bevy of disheartening injury news yesterday, there seems to be better news today on the C's injury front.  Kevin Garnett (hip flexor) did participate in shoot around and is being called "probable" for tonight.  Mickael Pietrus (right knee) said he's definitely playing tonight, but what he says and what Doc Rivers says might be a different story...

Am I underestimating the Celtics?

It's been a tough season for most Celtics fans. The awful start tempered the enthusiasm of even the most hardcore Green-teamers.  We've been distracted by a lot of trade talk. The Chris Paul/Rajon Rondo rumors dominated training camp. From there, we jumped into the blow-it-up debate as the Cs lost 8 of their first 12 games. Even when the Celtics rattled off 9 wins in...

Injury Report: Daniels & Bass Out, KG Questionable vs. Pistons & Doc’s Take on Linsanity

Rajon Rondo’s career high 35 for naught; Celtics dropped by the Pistons, 98-88

The Celtics came off of a pretty big high Sunday after beating the Chicago Bulls. They followed that up with one of the lower lows of the season dropping a game they should have won to the Detroit Pistons, 98-88. The Pistons out-hustled the Celtics for most of the game but especially when it counted [...]

Season-Defining Road Trips Approach

The upcoming road trips will most definitely be the toughest test the Celtics will face this regular season. After a home matchup versus the ailing Detroit Pistons on Wednesday (the 15th), they embark on a five game road trip visiting the Bulls, Pistons, Mavericks, Thunder, and Cavaliers. The Thunder and Cavaliers matchup will, however, be broken up by All-Star weekend, of which...
