Jason Terry hugs his former coach, Rick Carlisle The storyline in this one was Jason Terry playing his first game against his former team. Terry didn't play great with just 10 points but far more importantly, the C's were able to beat his former club, although it took a long time. The first half was the story of Paul Pierce absolutely finding his scoring touch. Over his past six games, The Truth was shooting just 38.3% from the field while averaging 17.3 points per game. In the first half tonight he went for 16 points on 6-9 shooting. Rajon Rondo paced the C's with 7 assists. The Celtics led 48-43 at the break, their strong defensive effort was mostly due to forcing 11 turnovers in the first 24 minutes. Chris Kaman aka the Unfrozen caveman was tough for the Celts to guard, going 5-6 from the field with 10 points. The 3rd quarter was a tale of two teams really. The Celtics came out of the halftime break on fire, outscoring the Mavs 20-11 over the first seven minutes of...

Video: Terry talks playing his former team & Rondo talks NFL dreams & Tom Brady

Might be an emotional night tomorrow as Jason Terry faces his former long time teammates for the first time. For his part he's downplaying the game based on the fact that a lot of the guys he went to war with over there will not be playing tomorrow. Most likely the Celtics lone visit to Dallas will be the tougher night. Below is the video to compliment Mike Dyer's recent...

Celtics Escape With Win Over Mavericks Despite Mistakes That Will Cost Them Against Better Teams

BOSTON — Jason Terry was incapable of recalling even the most crucial late-game possessions. His mind was so fogged over with 58 minutes of basketball, he could only try — but fail — to recall specific plays from the Celtics’ double-overtime slog against the Mavericks. “I don’t know,” Terry said. “I don’t even remember. It all happened so fast.” Actually, it happened...

Celtics grind out double-overtime win against the Mavericks 117-115

My eyes are bleeding. In a primetime matchup with Jason Terry’s old team the Celtics treated us to a delightful double-overtime period where both teams forgot how to play basketball, but the Celtics eventually remembered enough to get by. The Celtics had a five point lead at the half after giving up an 11-6 Mavericks run to end the second quarter. Then the Celtics did exactly what...

Mavericks-Celtics Preview

Maybe Jason Terry's play last season for the Dallas Mavericks against the Boston Celtics is a big reason why he's wearing green and white now. Terry will face the Mavericks for the first time since joining the Celtics in Wednesday night's matchup in Boston. Dallas (11-10) has won four straight over Boston (11-9), with Dirk Nowitzki leading the way with 24.0 points per...

Your Morning Dump… Where Doc has no timetable for a Celtics turnaround

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. “I don’t have a timetable on (when it’s all going to come together) because I don’t know what the time is going to be,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. “Some teams I’ve had get it like that, some take...

O.J. Mayo: ‘Would’ve been an honor to play’ for C's

Last season a trade that would have brought O.J. Mayo to Boston for Judas Shuttlesworth was basically squashed because Mayo claimed that he “doesn’t care about Boston’s banners.” After last night’s double overtime loss Mayo backpedaled faster than Rondo getting back on D, claiming that the accusation wasn’t true and he had no say in the matter due to lack of veto power...

Enemy Chatter: Rick Carlisle is looking forward to his number being retired

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Dallas. Carlisle couldn’t resist having a little fun at the media’s expense before Wednesday’s game. He was asked about the 1986 Boston team that he was part of and won the NBA championship. “I know my number is going to be retired...

OJ Mayo Calls Out Cousins

DeMarcus Cousins has issues. We’ve known that. Last night he escalated s**t with OJ Mayo AND Coach Rick Carlisle. OJ pretty much shut down the kid Cousins in his post game interview on what happened during the game: “Man, I was so pissed. It’s just, where does that come in in the game, you know what I mean? He’s a talented player, has a chance to be an All-Star. But you do...

Raptors 95, Mavericks 74

Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle had glowing praise for an old pal turned opponent. He wasn't as kind when it came to his own team. Linas Kleiza scored 12 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter, rookie Terrence Ross had 18 points and the Toronto Raptors beat the Mavericks 95-74 on Friday night, snapping a six-game losing streak.
