We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from northern California.
Though the Warriors were the team playing a back-to-back, Boston was the one that looked old and tired.
Especially when compared to the 20-year-old Barnes, whose fresh legs and athleticism bothered Pierce all night. Pierce missed his first eight field-goal attempts and finished with 13 points on 4-of-20 shooting.
Pierce missed his first eight shots but kept chucking until the Warriors built a 20-point, second-quarter lead.
This may have been the worst basketball I’ve seen Paul Pierce play, and I watched a lot of games in the lost seasons (1999-2006).
This was more than a bad shooting night. This was an old man getting abused by younger athletes. If this was a championship fight, it would have been stopped in the 2nd round.
Yes, I’ve buried and resurrected Paul Pierce a few times this season. He will have better gam...

An under .500 record through 29 games, it is safe to say the 2012-13 Boston Celtics have been a disappointment thus far. But why is this team struggling so much? What exactly are its problems? Let us take a closer look at the areas of struggle so far this season.
One of the main problems is just how bad the Celtics offense is. Currently sitting at an OTRG of 102.5 (ranked 23rd...

Wow. What is there to say? The Kings outplayed the Celtics the whole game, except for the second quarter which the Celtics won 31-30. The defense did not show up, allowing the Kings to shoot 53.7% from the field and 50% from 3. DeMarcus Cousins got his first triple-double. Jason Thompson, Isiah Thomas, and John Salmons scored over 20 points for the...

In a rare D-League trade, two recent Celtics, JaJuan Johnson and Luke Harangody, have been traded for each other.
The Charge acquired former Purdue big man JaJuan Johnson on Friday, and they used an old friend to do it.
Canton sent the rights to former Cavalier forward Luke Harangody and a 2013 third-round draft pick to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants in exchange for Johnson and Fort Wayne’s...
Coming off a strong performance against the Brooklyn Nets on Christmas day, it was easy to think some of that good fortune may translate into momentum going into a west coast road trip to California. That did not happen.

The Celtics and Pistons have made it clear to the Kings that they are highly interested in Cousins if and when he becomes available.
The DeMarcus Cousins rumors continue to swirl, and it's getting to the point where the old "where there's smoke - there's fire" adage is coming into play. One name that is consistently popping up as a possible trade chip for the Celts is Avery Bradley. Bradley is ready to return from shoulder surgery (double shoulder surgery at that) as soon as Wednesday night...

After kicking off a four-game trek with a much-needed win Christmas Day, the Boston Celtics saw their road woes resume their last time out.
They're likely to have their hands full again with a visit to the Bay up next.

The Warriors haven't been this good since the days of "Run TMC"
These aren't the old Golden State Warriors that we're used to seeing. This year's squad is 20-10, 9-4 at home, and in second place in the Pacific Division behind LA (that's the Clippers, not the Lakers; what a weird NBA season this is out in California?). David Lee and Steph Curry...

One thing that is apparent after the last three games: The Celtics don’t yet trust each other. That’s not to say that Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Rajon Rondo don’t trust each other; they do. They don’t trust some of the newcomers, and Garnett made that clear after Sunday’s 118-96 loss in Sacramento.
The Celtics are not on the same page. Some...
