Is he the cure to what ails Boston? No, not nearly. But rookie guard E'Twaun Moore is at least proving himself deserving of some extra playing time. After starting the season a miserable 9-of-37 from the floor, the Purdue alum ripped off a breakout performance Thursday night in Orlando, drilling four of four 3-pointers to lead Boston to a 27-point comeback -- the signature moment thus far of the Celtics' lackluster season. "One thing I told him was to come up with a routine and stick to it," Ray Allen said after the game. It's working. Since then, the 6-foot-4...

Ray Allen returns but Celtics give game to Cleveland 88-87

ESPN-Getty Images Boston gave the game away to Cleveland, 88-87 as they turned the ball over on their last three possessions. Ray Allen returned with 22 points but it wasn’t enough as Kyrie Irving is the hero with the game winning lay up.  The officials swallowed their whistles at the end, which frustrated the Celtics.  Unable to play through it, the Celtics gave this one away...

Celtics top Cavs to avenge loss

Paul Pierce scored 20 points, Ray Allen had 12 in the third quarter and the Boston Celtics avenged a disappointing loss to Cleveland two days ago by barely holding off the Cavaliers 93-90 on Tuesday night.

Celtics Live Blog: Mickael Pietrus, C's Go for Five in a Row Sunday Against Cavs

8 a.m.: The shorthanded Celtics play an early game Sunday, looking for their fifth straight victory.

Cavs 88, Celtics 87 Highlights

Big Decisions..Should the C's become buyers

What a difference a week makes. All of a sudden the C's are 10-10 and winners of 5 out of their last 6 games. Maybe not so ironically their success has come right after the Danny Ainge comments about his willingness to break the team up. So with momentum on their side is it time to look at keeping this team together and potentially adding a piece or two? The New Orleans Hornets...

Allen back in groove

Breakdown: How the hell did Irving get that layup?

The Celtics had pissed away an 11 point lead but they still had a chance to win.  All they had to do was stop the Cleveland Cavaliers one time and they could go home with a winning record.   But they didn't.  Kyrie Irving split the defense, laid it in, and now all that great stuff we watched over the past week has been erased.  Or at least pushed aside.   So how did...

  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.  It's the timing.  It's the timing of the play, it's the timing of when I got the pass, the late rotation.  If all that comes together at the right time, those things happen.  It'...
