Found March 05, 2013 on NESN.com:
3:26 p.m.: Nobody in Philly seems particularly optimistic about Bynum suiting up this season. Bob Ford of the Philadelphia Inquirer joined the chorus on Tuesday with a revealing column on the big man, who seems even farther from playing for the Sixers — ever — after saying last week that he would not play with pain. Sixers beat reporters found this little detail, uh, interesting. In other words, do not worry about Kevin Garnett having to bang down low with Bynum in this one, or in any game, honestly, for quite some time. 8 a.m. ET: As the Celtics brought an end to their three-day break on Monday, they talked about this being the stretch run. If they intend to make another late-season push and make noise in the playoffs, they must start now. Their quest begins in one of the key locations of last year’s run. Philadelphia, home of the struggling 76ers (23-35), will welcome the Celtics (31-27) in a showdown of two teams who have reacted very differently to major injuries to their stars....

Paul Pierce sneaks into 76ers huddle

This is one of the better huddle-bombs you’re going to see.  Pierce doesn’t even try to sneak in…. he just walks right up brazenly, right past Spencer Hawes, who looks directly at him, and drapes his arm around two Sixers to listen in on the last few seconds. It’s so great, none of the Sixers even get pissed.  It’s like the end of an old Mentos commercial when everyone...

Pierce now battling bone bruise on his left knee

According to Forsberg of the worldwide leader local branch, Paul Pierce is now battling a bone bruise on his left knee. He suffered the injury in Philly, but it appeared to affect his play last night in Indiana shooting just 4 of 15 for just 13 points. He did play 34 minutes which is a good sign, but was seen with an ice pack on his knee in postgame interviews. I wouldn’t expect...

Paul Pierce sneaks into 76ers huddle (Video)

Sometimes gaining an added advantage against a team isn't the moral thing to do but it's still entertaining for us to view.During Wednesday night's Boston Celtics/Philadelphia 76ers match, Celtics forward Paul Pierce decided to enter a 76ers huddle and do some recon work:(Courtesy of Red's Army)

Reports: Doc is leaving it up to Pierce whether he takes a night off or not

Doc Rivers is leaving it up to Paul Pierce whether or not he should sit out a game to help recuperate the pinched nerve in his neck. According to Boston Globe, Courtney Lee said Pierce has a “get out of playing” card he has yet to cash in. While it makes sense for Doc to let Pierce sit out a game if he asked for a night off, (it's not like Rivers is going to say, “No...

Video: Pierce, KG, and Doc check in from Monday's practice

After getting the day off on Sunday, Celtics leaders Doc Rivers, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett were all back at practice on Monday preparing for the Celtics match-up versus the 76ers tonight in Philly. For more Celtics videos, mixes, and movies check out our Video Vault.

Celtics hold off feisty 76ers

Paul Pierce had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Avery Bradley scored 22 points to lead the Boston Celtics to a 109-101 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night. Kevin Garnett scored 18 points to help the Celtics continued their push up the Eastern Conference standings. The Celtics entered in seventh, but were no more than two games behind the next three teams ahead in the...

Video: Celtics practice without Doc, KG, Pierce, and Terry

Molly updates the Celtics practice on Sunday. Armond Hill led the practice, as Doc was up in Maine watching his son play. Celtics veterans Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Jason Terry were all given the day off as well. The practice was mainly to get the newest Celtics some repetitions with the Celtics system. I really liked this line from Hill: "Repetition is the mother of learning."

Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett Relished the Three-Day Break But Understand It’s Back to the Grind (Videos)

Thanks to New England Sports Network’s Celtics writer Ben Watanabe, I chimed in with the Boston Celtics’ duo — Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett — to discuss their progression in the 2013 season as well as a preview of how this season and beyond may pan out. In the NBA, practice is the most important aspect for young guys, but for the older class players, like No. 34 and No....

Celtics new defense: 'Manwich' zone

The Boston Celtics four-game winning streak could be attributed to their "manwich" zone, which they used in Wednesday night's come-from-behind victory over the Indiana Pacers. The Boston Celtics shutout the Pacers in the final 4 minutes and 36 seconds of the game.  The Pacers missed seven shots and turned the ball over three times in their fina

Bradley leads C’s Sunday workout

As John wrote earlier today, Doc Rivers, Paul Pierce, Jet & KG were all absent from today’s workout. So who kept things organized while the vets & head coach were away? As Chris Forsberg tells us, it was none other than “Zero Tolerance”: Rajon Rondo is off rehabbing an ACL injury and the practice floor featured nearly as many newcomers (4) as guys who started the season...

Video: Jeff Green's game winning play

Finally, Doc Rivers listens to the fans and calls a play at the end of the game that isn't just a Paul Pierce iso. And it was awesome. Best win of the year? Best play of the year? Yes on both accounts. Via Reddit Video by HardwoodParoxysm09

Comments from the Other Side - Sixers 3/5

Good road win for the Celtics.  The Sixers have had it rough with injuries this season.  Poor Sixers fans want to root for a loss for more ping pong balls but they hate the Celtics so much that they are torn about it. Great game by Bradley.   I've highlighted a few favorites.  What are yours?  All the teams are tanking right now. Very hard to make progress in draft order...

Gutsy win: Boston Celtics rally to beat Indiana Pacers 83-81

Let me be honest: This game was billed as a potential playoff preview but Indiana is a team I’d rather avoid. The Pacers are a very good team, probably the only real challenger to the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference. A Celtics-Pacers series sounds like a more graceful version of last year’s grindy Celtics-76ers tilt, except this time the odds wouldn’t be in the Celtics...
