Have the Celtics finally (it's been a long long time) found a backup point guard in Terrence Williams?

In the "New Big 3" era... or is it the Kevin Garnett era now?  What are we calling it at this point?  In the last 6 seasons since the Celtics have been good again, they have never really had a backup point guard.  They've gone through a list of shooting guards who've filled in as ball handlers; Eddie House, Delonte West, Nate Robinson, Keyon Dooling, Leandro...

Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics welcome Paul, the Prince and (maybe) KG

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. A team source said that forward Kevin Garnett, who missed his seventh consecutive game with inflammation in his left ankle, is expected to return to action Friday against the Cavaliers. “Yeah, I guess. I don’t...

Gang Green Episode 6.23… a.k.a. the “would you rather” show

Jose Calderon Pulls Unintentional April Fools’ Joke, Walks Toward Raptors Locker Room at Halftime (Video)

Pistons guard Jose Calderon had only ever been a member of the Toronto Raptors before being dealt to Detroit in a three-team deal on Jan. 30. Calderon spent the better part of seven seasons in Toronto and when he returned as a visitor on Monday night, he fell back into old habits. Both teams use the same tunnel in the Air Canada Centre, and as they walked to the locker room at...

Your Morning Dump…where draft talk is alive again

  One teeny, tiny silver lining for Celtic fans as they watch their team limp to the finish line of the 2012-13 regular season: Boston is aiding its draft status without sacrificing its playoff seeding (at least for the moment while keeping eighth-seeded Milwaukee at arm’s length). ESPN Boston: One upside to losing    As is the case whenever things look bleak, many are resorting...

Detroit Pistons: Was this season a disappointment?

With six games remaining in the 2012-2013 regular season, Detroit fans will be watching their fourth straight NBA playoffs without their Metro Detroit Pistons. This season will mark the first time that the Pistons have missed the playoffs for four consecutive years since the 1980-1981 season (Detroit actually missed the playoffs six consecutive years during that span as they didn’t...

Highlights from the Celtics playoff clinching win last night. Celtics box score below.

Pistons center Andre Drummond airballs two consecutive free throws (Video)

You could excuse elementary schoolers for shooting two consecutive airballs from the free throw line. An NBA player, however, has no excuse. On that note, to say that Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond needs to work on his free throws would be the understatement of the year. Unless Drummond is trying to set the NBA record for worst FT shooting percentage for a season, in...

Celtics-Pistons Live: Jason Terry, Celts Try to Turn Around Fortunes as They Host Detroit

8 a.m. ET: Things have not gone the Celtics’ way lately, either on the court or off. The Celtics return to TD Garden on Wednesday hoping not only to get back in the win column but also to welcome back Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, who were out of commission on Monday. Pierce was back home to deal with a personal matter and the Celtics hope it is just a one-game absence. Garnett...

Rajon Rondo Look-A-Like: Kid From Hardball

Bryan Hearne played Andre Rey Peetes in Hardball I say the kid rocks the headband better. And unfortunately for Boston, unlike Peetes, I don’t think the Celtics (especially without Rondo) will make it to the “Ship” this year… Click here to view the video on YouTube. Another award-winning performance by Keanu Reeves in this scene. -Frankel
