Oddly enough, Bradley's return didn't solve every single problem ever for the Celtics.Welcome back, Avery. Not welcome back, same Celtics team we’ve seen for the past several weeks. Please go away forever.Doc claimed that Bradley would be without a minutes-limit before the game, but it’s difficult to believe that Bradley will only get 20 minutes per game as the season progresses. In those 20 minutes, he had a typically unremarkable box score (four points, 2-6 shooting, one steal), but his defense was typically strong, and though it showed some (plenty of) cracks, the Celtics’ defense in general looked a little better.The offense, however, did not look better, and now, with a four game losing streak looking more and more unbreakable, the Celtics have dropped to three games below .500. I don’t have a witty comment to throw this to bullet points.The Celtics are bad at rebounding, but they were especially terrible tonight. The Grizzlies won the rebounding battle 39-27, 8-3 on of...

Rajon Rondo Says Avery Bradley Is Best Defensive Guard in NBA (Video)

Just as the Celtics are finally getting Avery Bradley back from injury, they still may not have their projected starting five on the court at the same time. Rajon Rondo is nursing injuries that could keep him out of Wednesday’s game against the Grizzlies.

Dreaming of RON DMC

As the new year begins, the rumors surrounding the Celtics and coveted bigs like DeMarcus Cousins can only get louder.  Louder - that is - until the February trade deadline passes or until DMC is dealt to another team - whichever comes first.  It is quite possible that Danny Ainge will come away empty handed or with a less-coveted player but a (serious) change, moving forward...

Bradley has heard those folks’ cries for help, but as he prepares to...

Some Celtics Players Laugh And Joke After Losses Causing Concern

One thing that is apparent after the last three games: The Celtics don’t yet trust each other. That’s not to say that Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Rajon Rondo don’t trust each other; they do. They don’t trust some of the newcomers, and Garnett made that clear after Sunday’s 118-96 loss in Sacramento. The Celtics are not on the same page. Some players continue to laugh...

The Celtics are the worst team in the NBA when Kevin Garnett is on the bench

When you watch a Celtics game, it becomes obvious pretty quickly who their most important player is. It's not Rajon Rondo, despite the fact that he's the best passer in the league. It's not Paul Pierce, the 2nd best scorer in team history. It's Kevin Garnett. Even at age 36, in his 18th NBA season, it's Garnett who makes the biggest impact on his team. KG has...

Recap: Listless Celtics drop their 4th straight

From my game preview: This has to be a circle-the-wagons game. The C’s are coming off an embarrassment of a road trip. The Garden will be buzzing thanks to the long-awaited return of AB.
