I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from New York.

The non-call on Chandler’s dunk in the 4th. The phantom foul on Shumpert when he lost the ball. The ticky-tack technical on Stat. The deflection out of bounds by Rondo that led to Allen’s go ahead three. Game-changing plays, every man jack of them. You can’t say it cost the Knicks the game because…screw it.

Despite Rajon Rondo's black eye, Celtics get best of Knicks

Expecting anything but drama in this game would have been foolish as the Boston Celtics outlast the Knicks 91-89.  This game was a nail-biter as the officials seemed to control the outcome all around.  First Paul Pierce made a huge three pointer as the shot clock went off that ended up not counting, then Landry Fields air balled the go ahead three, next Pierce made...

Your Morning Dump: KG is just a black guy shooting 3s

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 can shoot 3s.
