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 Milwaukee.
Daniels played tough defense all night on Paul Pierce all game and gave the Bucks god versatility against the Pierce/Terry pick and roll late. He offers preciously little on the other end, but he knows his limitations very well and found Jennings on the three that put Milwaukee ahead for good.
Luc Richard Mbah a Moute
Not bad for his first game back. Mbah a Moute made some open jumpers and most importantly ended up doing a pretty good job defending Paul Pierce on a HUGE possession for the Celtics with 37 seconds to get late. He made Pierce lose control, gather and then have to take a difficult fadeaway that he missed. In his first game back, to have to jump into that situation off the bench and handle it that well? That’s impressive.
Paul Pierce did have ten points in the 4th quarter, but he doesn’t lo...
BEST OF MAXIM
Paul Pierce is one of the greatest players to ever put on a Boston Celtics uniform. He may not be as legendary as greats like Larry Bird or Bill Russell, but he did win an NBA championship and has been with the team since he got into the league in 98′. Despite his success, Pierce has had some low moments as well ,and by low I meaning falling on the ground cause you just got...
Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry all had the day off from practice today. Leandro Barbosa was also not present due to illness.about 1 hour ago via TwitterrificReplyRetweetFavorite@celticsBoston CelticsThe Celtics don’t play until Wednesday’s tilt with Garnett’s alma mater, so applaud Doc for a good decision. No reason to make the elderly folks run unnecessarily, especially...
Rondo may be the assist king of the Celtics but it's Paul Pierce (#9) and KG (#4) that show up in this week's Top 10 Assists of the Week.

I’ll admit it. I really thought the Celtics were going to run away with this game.It was foolish, I know. I mean, why would I think that this team could hold a 17-0 lead? Stupid, stupid. I should have known that Milwaukee would come back, because, you know, the Celtics. The only question would be whether or not Boston could hold off Milwaukee’s comeback. They could not, as it...
Anytime I log on to Twitter, it’s not long until ” #TeamCeltics ” comes across my timeline. That’s because I follow a young die-hard from NYC who goes by the Twitter handle @NyPDCeltics_34. His real name is Richard F. Richard is a 17 year old student from Brooklyn, NY who reps the Boston Celtics to the fullest. And as you can imagine, being a Boston Celtics fan in NYC is...

I always feel bad for fans who start talking lottery in the first month of the season. Even in the Celtics worst years I had hope for the team turning it around. The hate for Tommy is way over the top. It amazes me when they talk about him like he doesn't know basketball. A 10 time champion as both player and coach, Tommy knows more than their whole fan base. I've...
The Celtics barely missed Rondo as they routed the Trailblazers 96-78. Strong performances by Jeff Green, Jason Terry, Courtney Lee, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett gave Celtics fans hope that they can play without their floor general. Jared Weiss of CLNS Radio recaps the game in tonight’s edition of “Three at the Buzzer”. Filmed and [...]
ESPN Boston’s Chris Forsberg reports from Celtics practice in Waltham today:
WALTHAM, Mass. — Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers gave members of the 35+ club — Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Jason Terry — an extra day off and a respite from Monday’s practice, then tossed his clipboard to veteran assistant Armond Hill to run the skeleton session.
Leandro Barbosa also sat out...

Brandon Jennings buried a wide open three with 24 seconds left to give Milwaukee a 90-88 lead, and the Bucks held on for a 91-88 victory when Paul Pierce and Jason Terry both missed long three point attempts just before the final buzzer.
Boston began the night with a 17-0 run, holding Milwaukee scoreless for the first five and a half minutes of the game. The Celtics led 27-11...
Bucks fans went from no hope to thinking they were contenders pretty quickly. They don't like Rondo and they don't like KG, but they hate their own players more, it seems. For some reason, that gif of the dancing deer amuses me greatly but I'm not sure why :)
I'm looking for a good showing out of the Bucks tonight. Somebody wake up Dunleavy. Dude is killing...
Basketball is one of the most eloquent, graceful and beautiful sports to watch. The way some players glide up and down the court or shoot a perfectly balanced jumpshot makes many fans appreciate the sport. Tonight the Celtics completely butchered that for the Blazers, something we've been waiting for and are happily welcoming. Some might light up when they see the Jeff Green...
