On Wednesday night the Celtics hosted the Dallas Mavericks. Coming into the game the big storyline featured Jason Terry as he matched up against his former team for the first time since joining the Celtics this off season. Although Terry said it was just another game it's been well documented he wasn't pleased when the call never came for him to resign with the Mavs. In a wild double overtime game the Celtics survived and came away with a win 117-115.
The Mavericks were without their former finals MVP and franchise player Dirk Nowitzki. Their team as a whole was completely revamped in the off season similar to the Celtics, matching veteran players with young athletic talent. The Celtics opened up with their traditional line-up of Rajon Rondo, Jason Terry, Paul Pierce, Brandon Bass and Kevin Garnett. Of the starters Rondo achieved a career and team high 53 minutes and just missed a triple-double finishing with 16 points, 15 assists, and 9 rebounds. Paul Pierce was the high ...

Another look behind the scenes of the NOC's Jason Terry videos. Here we see what went into the making of The Shootout, the Jason Terry is a Shooter, and the Pranked videos. These are such fun videos. Jason Terry will be front and center on Wednesday as his current team takes on his former team at the Garden.

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.

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...
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...
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.

Rondo with the gorgeous assist.
That was quite the game. I'd rather have a 20 point lead going into the final 2 minutes. I'm too old for these close games. The guy predicting 2-12 for JET was pretty close, he finished 3-10. Like usual, there are the Paul Pierce wheelchair comments and the complaints about the refs and KG's screens. You can count on those like clockwork. They sure got worked up...
Welp, it’s a little late, but consider this a “late-night snack”. I was trying to find this pic all day, and the folks at Celtics Fanchat tweeted it just now. It’s our own Rajon Rondo talking with Patriots great Matt Light last night at Foxboro.
The Boston Celtics are 12-9. They have been unable to reel off a long winning streak despite their improved play over the past couple of weeks. The team has won two straight games at home over the Philadelphia 76ers and the Dallas Mavericks in double overtime.

Rajon Rondo came out to support the home team New England Patriots as they took on the 11-1 Houston Texans at Gillette Stadium Monday night. The Celtics guard got the best seat in the house, cheering from the sideline where he sported a #83 Wes Welker jersey, the same one he’s worn to previous games. Head coach Doc Rivers was in attendance as well where he sat in on Belichick’s...
The Celtics took 2OT to beat the Mavs at home, 117-115. Paul Pierce scored his 2300th career point and Rajon Rondo contributed with a near-triple-double, 16 points, 15 assists and 9 rebounds.

After trailing the entire 4th quarter, Paul Pierce gave the Celtics signs of life with a big 3 that cut the Houston lead to 88-83. On the next possession Rajon Rondo poked the ball away from James Harden and dove for the steal, but couldn't quit come up with it. Harden then buried a deep three to stretch the lead back to 8 with 4:41 to go. Boston would never get any closer...
