Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
Since there aren't comments from the opposing team's fans for today's game I thought I'd do something a little different and gather Celtics fans comments. There is a very good feeling in Celtic Nation after the first two games and I thought it would be fun to let the kool-aid flow a bit. Enjoy today's comments from the Celtics' side and get excited.
The interview with sullinger before the game made me smile. he's just asking questions and will do whatever is needed.
So uh. Rondo looks super confident with his shot. Amazing sign
Our offense will really open up if Rondo can force defenses to respect his shot. It looks real good so far.
Garnett is so **** energetic
**** love it
Strong finish right there by Sully.
Yea, I like seeing that. That is something the C's have missed, a guy who will bang in the post.
If Rondo keeps up this shooting during the season he will be a legit MVP candidate.
What a amazing finish by Rondo....

Rajon Rondo made the cover of Boston Common Magazine and they have a pretty lengthy interview and feature on him. Not sure if the author really knows their basketball as they allude to Ray Allen playing the same position as Rondo on the court, but the article does have some good quotes from Rondo.People can judge point guards by assessing passing, scoring, defense, and a slew of...
Rajon Rondo told me he was more confident in his 3-point shot and had been working hard on it. Form on 3 he just hit looked best it ever had

How many times over the last few years have we said that if Rondo just had a jumper he would be scary. Well, I think we may just have a scary Rondo on our hands this season. I've said...
The Celtics weren’t about to become the first NBA team to drop both games in an NBA Europe trip. Rajon Rondo dominated the first quarter, the second unit pulled away in the second quarter, and then it was all a breeze from there in a 105-75 win.
Here’s what stood out:
Rondo, obviously, off the top. He had a perfect first quarter, shooting 7-7, including his 1 three and two...
Rajon Rondo scored all 17 of his points in the first quarter and added six assists to lead the Boston Celtics to a 105-75 win over Emporio Armani Milano on Sunday, two days after the NBA team opened its preseason European tour with a loss in Turkey.
Jeff Green also had 17 points off the bench for Boston.

It was a close game in the first quarter despite Rajon Rondo's brilliant 17 points on 7-for-7 shooting in the opening frame. Then the Celtics defense kicked in, they held the Italians to 4-of-19 shooting in that second quarter and that was pretty much the story of the game.
Rajon Rondo's 17 ended up tying for the team lead with Jeff Green. Paul Pierce added 14 on 4-of...

The Celtics recently wrapped up a two game European swingThe Boston Celtics recently finished up a two game preseason schedule in Europe with mixed results. Of course that means that it is time to blow everything completely out of proportion.

The Celtics played their second preseason game of the season yesterday, this time in Milan against an Italian league team (their first contest was in Istanbul vs a squad from Turkey).
I’ll be the first to admit that you can’t really infer much based on observations of a couple preseason games in Europe against teams from leagues we know nothing about. As good as Jeff Green...
