Another loss but at least they tried in this one. But it also highlighted the need to get a rebounder. If only Kenneth Faried had a twin brother that likes green. Bring back Leon. At least he boxes out and goes after rebounds. I think the Celtics have forgotten how to box out. Where's Cliff Ray when you need him? Oh yeah, out in Sacramento. :( Another game where Celtics fans almost outnumber the home team fans. Any complaints on their part about the refs was ridiculous given the fact that at the half they had 22 free throws to 5 for the Celtics and they ended with 31 to 17 for the Celtics. And the Celtics were going to the hoop. Just not getting any calls. I hope you enjoy the comments in spite of the loss.
These guys just got destroyed by Sacramento. Could mean they're gonna come out hard against us...or it could mean they are about to get stomped again.
Boston also kind of sucks on the road with a 7-12 record.
They're old, they're slow, they pl...

We have seem some great dunks this year, and buncha buzzer beaters, but none of them are as pretty to watch as this pass from Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari
We see behind the back passes all the time inside the paint, but rarely do we see one near the sideline that travels all the way back under the basket. It was pure precision, and is definitely the assist of the year...
Early season first half woes have seemed come back. Struggling to score in the first half has led to awful results for Boston, as of late, as they lost another game tonight. This time the Denver Nuggets walked away with a 98-91 victory at the Pepsi Center.
Trying to play a different style of basketball never works. This is what happened in Sacramento and is continuing...
Guess who’s back?!?!?!?! Wilson Chandler has re-signed with the Denver Nuggets. Chandler has agreed to sign a long-term deal with the Nuggets, his agent told The Denver Post, after missing the season thus far after playing professionally in China.

The past month has brought a dozen different non-updates on Jermaine O’Neal’s wrist injury, each of which has been more vague than the last. The latest non-update is slightly more detailed, as Danny Ainge points out that O’Neal is still rehabbing and deciding whether he can return this season. (Boston Herald)“Not yet,” Ainge said yesterday when asked if O’Neal’s situation...
Saturday evening provided yet another dip in the green machine roller coaster. The Boston Celtics have lost their second straight game, after winning 8 of 10, following the all-star break. The long and athletic Denver Nuggets put the pressure on the Celtics early and often. Apparently, the high altitude of Denver did not help the [...]
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.
“It’ll be fun,” said coach Doc Rivers, perhaps speaking more in the hopeful than definitive sense. “We have a chance to catch Atlanta, have a chance to put room (between themselves and) Milwaukee and...
Forward JJ Hickson gets buyout from Kings, source tells Yahoo!— Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) March 19, 2012
Hickson and the Celtics have been linked before so don't be surprised if Boston signs him to add some depth to their front court. However, he has missed games with some back spasms with no certain timetable for a return.
Thanks to JayCeltic9 in the shoutbox for the find.
I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Sacramento.
Thornton was absolutely scorching. So many of his baskets came on catch-and-shoot opportunities where the ball was barely in his hands. But as soon as he let go, you felt like it was money.

The Kings started this one off hot, building up a big lead early on against a road weary Celtics, utilizing their youth and athleticism, taking a 26-20 lead after one quarter. The Kings were able to force the ball to Demarcus Cousins while Marcus Thornton and Jason Thompson packed a scoring punch. Behind their captain [...]
