I love these NOC Jason Terry is a Celtic videos. Shooting 91% from midrange is pretty incredible. Of course he didn't have a hand in his face or a defender running at him, but as we've seen in recent games, he's pretty good even with a defender on him. I don't know about you, but I'm very glad that Jason Terry is a Celtic!

BOSTON — Anyone who claims that a dunk is only worth two points has never been in the building when a player delivered a true facial to a helpless defender.

Here are today's five things that the Celtics must do to win tonight:
CSNNE's Sherrod Blakely posted a piece on Al Jefferson's return to Boston after the Celtics-Jazz game on Wednesday night. While most of the discussion about Big Al related to Jeff Green's monster dunk on him, Jefferson scored 13 points and grabbed 14 rebounds against the Celtics, and Doc Rivers highly touted his former player:

After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value.
Offense: Defense: Overall:
He did a great job of being aggressive. He’s obviously not Rondo, but he’s just about as fast and any time you can push the tempo and force the defense to react, good things will happen. Barbosa also...

Halfway through the fourth quarter of the Utah Jazz and Boston Celtics game, Jeff Green of the Celtics found some superhuman leaping abilities and applied them accordingly. Jeff drove down the lane and dunked over two defenders, but Al Jefferson was the one who ended up on a very life-sized poster. The dunk is an easy early season candidate for dunk of the year.

I grew up during the sixties and was fortunate to be able to watch all the great sixties stars thanks to tv contracts from CBS and ABC. CBS had the first nationally televised games which I saw in the early sixties. Unfortunately, I had just started watching basketball, and didn't really know the game. I do remember seeing some the great stars from the fifties like Cousy, Arizin...
