BOSTON — The sharpshooter was making golf analogies and the Celtics had just won a ballgame. It was like old times in the home locker room at the TD Garden.
The only differences were that this sharpshooter was not Ray Allen but Jason Terry, and the ballgame the Celtics had just won was a dreadful-looking escape act against and underwhelming opponent missing its two best players.
At this point, though, the Celtics cannot be picky. While they were far from satisfied with their effort in the 100-94 win over the Washington Wizards on Wednesday, the Celtics were glad to earn their first home win of the season and finally get their record to .500.
“The energy level was definitely a lot better,” said Terry, who scored 16 points in his first productive game off the bench. “I feel a little more comfortable on both ends of the floor, but for me it’s about making shots. If this was golf, I thought I left a couple birdies out there from deep, but it’ll come. I’ve said that this is a process for...
BEST OF MAXIM
Throughout the preseason, we brought you stories about Jason Terry being awesome. “He got a leprechaun tattooed underneath his Finals trophy? AWESOME!” “He wants to kill the Heat?! WHAT A GUY! And the Lakers?!! BEST DUDE EVER!!”But in the first three games of the season, we didn’t see much from JET on the court. Sure, he scored 10 points against Milwaukee on efficient shooting...
In a Boston Herald article this morning by Mark Murphy, Jason Terry talks of his long standing relationship with Avery Bradley. As a high school sophomore, Bradley was a member of an AAU team in Tacoma, Washington that was founded by Terry's father. Terry recalls playing in a pickup game with the young Bradley:
Avery Bradley: "The Glove 2.0?"
We were in a...
In Episode 6 of Jason Terry is a Celtic from NOC, Jet tries his hand at parking cars and decides that it's a bit pricey.

I love Jason Terry. I've shared my excitement for his signing numerous times on this blog. Yet for the past 3 games, former 6th man of the year hasn't been able to live up to the hype, which is perfectly in line with the team's story overall. Of course the Celtics are going to solve their problems and get better as they find chemistry/identity/Ubuntu/hyena spirit, but...
As the season heats up, the comments are going to get better. Today's were much better than the previous game. It's always interesting to see which players other fan bases hate the most. In Washington, it seems to be KG. Some fun stuff today. Enjoy!
I want to see Beal chug a Monster energy drink, hop off the bench fired up ready to rip Rondo's head off, and start...

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.
“We thought it would be a lot smoother, but it’s not always as easy as you think it will be. It’s good that we’re going through it. We’ll look back on this journey and say it’s something we had to go...

Hey everyone, I know everybody has seen the popular "5 on 5" series on the ESPN website or "3 on 3" on the ESPN Boston website. Well this year, we are going to have our own, the CelticsLife 5-on-5.
The Boston Celtics are currently 1-2 and there has been cause for concern. I think the media is blowing things out of proportion...

The Philadelphia 76ers entered tonight averaging 83 points per game. “Never fear!” said the Celtics, who allowed them to score 106 points and crush their season high of 88. The Celtics had a horrendous second quarter (which I should be used to by now) where they were outscored 34-25 and spent the rest of the game playing catch-up. While the Celtics outscored the 76ers in...
A couple of days ago, Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge joined WEEI's "The Big Show" to talk about the team.One of the questions ended up being about former Boston Celtics member Ray Allen and it appears from Ainge's perspective that Ray didn't return his phone calls:Whether he has spoken to Ray Allen since Allen has left Boston:“I’ve tried to ...
The Miami Heat have good reason to believe they'll keep their momentum going into an upcoming two-week road swing.
They have yet to lose a home game and their final one before that trip comes Wednesday night against a Brooklyn Nets team they've beaten 10 straight times.
Two days after needing Ray Allen's late 4-point play for a narrow win over Denver, Miami's victory...
KG keeps topping himself with these post game interviews. Here's the scoop via Paul Flannery:
"You can't speed chemistry up. The more you practice, the more you get familiar with each other. There's no hit the fast forward button here. You got Comcast. Some shows you can't fast forward through, you got to let it go through and watch the silly-ass commercials...
