The Boston Celtics took care of business on the defensive end Sunday in a 91-79 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, but weren't successful on the offensive end. The Celtics held the Thunder to 44.1 percent shooting and didn't let

Hearing Paul pierce may have tonight off for rest

Got to hand it to Doc… he’s taking advantage of the schedule to rest guys at times that minimize the impact on the team.
If Pierce sits, Jeff Green will start. I’m also going to bet this means KG sits tomorrow night. He’s due for another day off.

Unthinkable as it may seem given his recent stellar play, Paul Pierce will one day play his final game in a Celtics uniform.
That could be as soon as this summer, in fact. The Celtics have a $5 million buyout in Pierce’s contract, which becomes guaranteed for more than $15 million if he is still on the roster come July. The team therefore has to decide whether the $10 million savings...
The Miami Heat are the best team in basketball. Whether you love them (doubtful if you're reading this), hate them (quite likely if you're reading this), respect them, or not - they have proven it. They are the defending champs, have the best winning percentage in basketball, and are in the midst of an 18 game winning streak; the longest such streak in the NBA this season...

From Sean Grande:
Paul Pierce (rest) will sit out tonight in Charlotte. Jeff Green will start in his place. The Celtics host Toronto tomorrow.

As John posted about earlier, it’s now confirmed that Jeff will indeed start tonight in Charlotte. I’d love to see him take advantage of this opportunity and have a big game. We’ll see in about 1 hour…
Here are video highlights of Paul Pierce, Jason Terry, and Jordan Crawford from the game last night against the Atlanta Hawks. All of these videos are courtesy of OfficialCeltics. Paul Pierce had 27 points, 7 rebounds, and 7 assists. Jason Terry had 19 points and 5 assists, along with the biggest shot of the night: a 3-pointer to up the Celtics up 3 with 35 seconds left in overtime...
The Boston Celtics have been soaring through their schedule the past week and more importantly have been walking away with much needed wins.
The scenario was no different Friday night back in Boston where they went into an overtime thriller with the Atlanta Hawks before coming away with the 107-102 win! The win must have been especially gratifying for Coach Doc Rivers who had a long...
Rondo and Bradley form a talented but undersized backcourt.
The title of this post might have you questioning my sanity, which might be justified, but hear me out. Rajon Rondo, Avery Bradley, and Jeff Green all play important positions in today's NBA which does not emphasize post play. They all have the ability to play the type of intense defense (even Rondo) that would make...
It always amazes me when there is a team like the Hawks that is playing well and yet their fans aren't really behind them. Unlike the Raptors, who aren't playing so well, yet have over a hundred pages on 3 or 4 different boards, it's hard to find an active game thread for the Hawks. I mean, even the Bobcats have a more loyal following than the Hawks. I say...
#9 is the C's top spot since pre-season
A 3-1 week that saw Boston knock off Philly, Indiana, and Atlanta, and lose a hard fought battle in Oklahoma City has lifted the Celtics (34-28) to the #9 spot in Marc Stein's ESPN NBA power rankings. After passing the Knicks (38-22) and Rockets (34-30) since being #11 a week ago, the C's are now the 3rd highest ranked team in...

Tonight, the Celtics will finally get to play an easier opponent when they visit the Bobcats. Charlotte currently sits at an NBA-worst 13-50. The C's will probably win this game, but you can't guarantee it. They still have to play hard. Here are tonight's five things:
