Your Morning Dump… Where Doc reminded the guys that Pierce, KG are on the team

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. But then the Celtics got back to what they know best. Actually, it was more about who they know best: Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. “I made a point of it,” Rivers said. “I reminded our guys that Paul was...

Doc doesn’t want Rondo saving himself on the floor

Rajon Rondo has played a lot of minutes.  That’s probably because, as usual, there isn’t a reliable option behind him to run the Celtics offense. We knew going into this season that Rondo would play a lot of minutes.  But there have been way too many instances of Rondo slacking off.  The most egregious examples come from the Milwaukee game, where a lot of guys were coasting...

Kevin Garnett tells Boston Celtics they need to be more like hyenas, is still awesome at metaphors

In his most introspective moments, and really at any other time of day, Kevin Garnett is prone to complex metaphors. He uses them, I think, in an attempt to simplify his own thoughts when relating them to everyone else. So it was little surprise when Garnett referred to a cackling animal when describing how his team needs to behave after Friday night’s loss to the Milwaukee Bucks...

The Celtics and their over-reliance on Kevin Garnett

We’ve seen what happens to the Celtics when Kevin Garnett isn’t in the line up.  We know it.  But if you don’t, Cedric Maxwell summed it up quite nicely on CSNNE: “I think the thing about KG, KG is the engine,” Maxwell said. “You can have the keys — Rondo has the keys to everything — but KG is the engine and when the engine is going the car is going the right way...

Celtics focus on better communication and a return to their defensive roots

If you have been to or watched any Celtics game on TV in the last 6 years, you would see either Kendrick Perkins or Kevin Garnett calling and directing defensive plays for the team.   Perk is no longer here, and Rajon Rondo has  taken up the slack. In game one, KG's voice was silenced and Rondo became indecisive with his new role as on-court leader. This was not the Rondo...

Taking Stock: Celtics – Wizards

After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value. Starters Rajon Rondo:  Better effort in this one, which shows the Milwaukee was a cruise-control, front-end of a back-to-back game.  I’m still not a big fan of Rondo’s half court defense, which I feel could be better if he just took better angles when he comes off picks...

Tale of Two Guards: Rajon Rondo and Jason Terry

The stage is set for another successful season out of the Boston Celtics, a team that’s managed to round out its roster with some younger pieces, yet still was able to maintain its veteran core. Rajon Rondo, while still only 26 years old, has become a part of that core, as he’s teamed up with Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to give the Celtics a Big Three over the past few seasons...

Bucks Spoil Home Opener 99-88

On Friday night the Celtics opened up their 2012-2013 season at home against the Milwaukee Bucks. Coming off a loss to the Miami Heat the Celtics looked to crack down on the defensive end and continue to execute on offense. Unfortunately neither of these things happened for the Celtics as they lost to the Bucks 99-88. The Celtics struggled from the start looking sloppy on offense...

Comments from the Other Side - Bucks 11/2

Comments after losses are usually pretty depressing. I have to say, I kind of like Bucks fans. They seem like a decent bunch who have been used to cheering for a losing team and seemed quite surprised by this win. Not much hate for the Celtics like there is in a lot of fan bases either. So, in spite of the loss, these comments aren't all that bad. Hopefully tonight we get...

Recap: Milwaukee embarrasses Celtics in home opener

The Boston Celtics have some very big problems right now.  I stress right now because it’s way too early in the season to get TOO worked up.  but I stress “very” because the Celtics problems are really, really, really quite bad.   Don’t let the 11 point final spread fool you, the Celtics got blown out all game long.  A couple of Jason Terry threes in garbage time helped...

Celtics 89, Wizards 86

A night after what their coach called a ''flat game,'' Kevin Garnett and the Boston Celtics held the Washington Wizards to 1-for-14 shooting at the start, then were barely better at the end. Strong defensive stands early - Washington's only scoring in the first 8 minutes came on Garnett's goaltending call - and late, plus Paul Pierce's 27 points, including...

The Boston Celtics grind now begins

Doc Rivers and the Celtics need to get back to worrying about getting through the regular season Opening night in the NBA for the Boston Celtics had almost everything. There was Kevin Garnett giving the Ray Allen “I will (bleeping) murder you” face, both the Celtics and the Heat played hard and the game even ended with a hard foul that has both teams riled up and ready to throw...

Your Morning Dump… Where Jared Sullinger is getting the rookie treatment

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. He has picked up fouls when officials didn’t want to whistle Kevin Garnett or Paul Pierce, he’s gotten them for merely raising his hands and standing in the same spot, he’s drawn them simply for being a 20...
