Found April 23, 2013 on Celtics Life:
Okay, I am not going to waste my time writing a long article about you JET. I am going to make this simple, put up or shut up. This off-season you were the talk of the team. You promised us you would outduel Ray Allen in the first game. You got a tattoo of the Celtics' mascot holding the NBA championship trophy. We gave you time to get adjusted to your role, starting or coming off the bench. You struggled all season long and played terrible in Game 1 of the NBA playoff series. 0-5 all together shooting while 0-4 from three point land? Come on dude. At the beginning of the season, I talked trash about Jeff Green's contract and said you will be what we need. At some point your "confidence" has become "cocky and idiotic". All season you have talked a big game, heck I even wanted a Jason Terry jersey just because it has "Terry" on the back. My point is, put up or stop talking trash like you are a star player, because right now every time you sh...

Celtics Seeking Revenge in Game 2

After the sloppy play featured in the second half of the series opener, Paul Pierce and the Boston Celtics will look to redeem themselves in Game 2 this evening at MSG. Turnovers plagued the Celtics late in Game 1 but the atrocious efforts put forth by the bench are what ultimately did them in. While Carmelo Anthony led the way with 36 points, it was the New York Knicks bench that...

Jeff Green wants to do it all

“I’ve just got to do it,” Green said before the team’s morning shootaround at Madison Square Garden. “I’ve just go to play through the fatigue. I’ve got to continue to look for mine, basically. There’s no excuses now. I want to be out there, I want to compete. I want to play against the best, I want to guard Carmelo, I want to do it all. It’s just something I...

Your Morning Dump… Where Jordan Crawford could get more minutes tonight

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. “I thought he was good,” Rivers said. “He stayed in his lane, let’s put it that way. He didn’t go outside of it. Usually guys in their first [playoff] game, they do one or the other. Some guys don’t...

Boston Celtics to raise $200,000 to support The One Fund Boston Charity

The Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation has committed to raising $200,000.00 to benefit the victims and injured of the Boston Marathon Bombings. In an official press release from the Boston Celtics, they said: “Our Celtics family and our fans join all Bostonians in demonstrating our city’s great strength by coming together to stand as one to get through this difficult time ,...

A Celtic received a Sixth Man of the Year Award, you'll never guess who

One of the Boston Celtics received a Sixth Man of the Year Award and you may be surprised who it was. Either somebody really likes Jordan Crawford's game or they meant his older brother Jamal, but one of the newest Celtics was voted the best player off the bench in the NBA. Nothing against Jordan Crawford, but it's hard to say a guy who didn't spend the whole year on...

Hip pointer won’t keep KG out of Game 3

Doc Rivers says Kevin Garnett suffered a hip pointer in Game 2 against the Knicks. See the video evidence above. The injury will not prevent KG from practicing or playing in Game 3. Shocking. As for why Jordan Crawford is playing significant minutes over Courtney Lee, Doc said: “I think offensively he gives you a better shot at it.” On the team’s effort: At the end of the day...

Can the Celtics offense succeed by running more?

When Boston posted just 25 points in the second half of Saturday's 85-78 Game 1 loss, it brought to life my (and pretty much everyone else's) concerns about the C's playoff offense without Rajon Rondo.  Lacking a true point guard they need to find more ways to create scoring opportunities, and the simplest way to do that is to run.  Said Paul Pierce on Monday (via Gary...

Last year's Eastern Conference Finals were far from over when the Celtics fell behind 0-2 in Miami

On May 30th of last year Rajon Rondo played the game of his life.  But it wasn't enough, and the Celtics lost Game 2 of the Conference Finals to the Heat, 115-111 in OT.  That put the C's in an 0-2 hole heading back to Boston.  I'll be the first to admit, I had given up.  After watching one of the greatest individual performances I'd ever seen come up just short...

Rivers: Garnett (hip) will play Game 3 vs Knicks

Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers says Kevin Garnett has a hip injury but it won't keep him out of Game 3 of their playoff series against the New York Knicks. Rivers says Garnett's hip was bothering him during Tuesday night's 87-71 loss to the Knicks. The victory gave New York a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. The series resumes in Boston on Friday night. And Rivers...

Update on the Celtics/Knicks ticket auction - Over $500 raised!

Last week after the marathon bombings, CelticsLife (plus PatriotsLife, Red Sox Life and BruinsLife) shared a link to the Children's Hospital Boston wish list (the list is still up and worth a look). Children's was caring for nine kids that got injured in the bombings, and the wish list was for toys and games that the kids can use during their time there. A friend of mine...

Live Game Updates - Game 2

8:40: With one minute left in the first quarter tonight, the Celtics led 20-17. But now, after the first buzzer has gone off, they somehow trail 26-20. It takes a lot of effort just to do that bad. They better have a big run to open the second or else they'll be in a lot of trouble. That was absolutely ridiculous.
