Rajon Rondo has already extended his double-digit assist streak to 33 games in the first half as the Celtics lead the Raptors 47-42. Rondo had seven assists in the first quarter after making the game-time decision to return as the starting point guard. Rondo, who sprained his right ankle Wednesday night against the Jazz, showed [...]
The Celtics have underachieved so far this season, but they were finally putting together a solid wire to wire effort Monday night in Chicago. However, as I watched a 13 point 4th quarter lead dwindle down to 3 with five minutes to go, the score was not what concerned me; Rajon Rondo had only 6 assists.
Amazingly in the final 3:12 of the game he assisted on each of the C’s final...
I love these NOC Jason Terry is a Celtic videos. Shooting 91% from midrange is pretty incredible. Of course he didn't have a hand in his face or a defender running at him, but as we've seen in recent games, he's pretty good even with a defender on him. I don't know about you, but I'm very glad that Jason Terry is a Celtic!

COLUMBIA, Md. — Without Rajon Rondo, the Boston Celtics were still able to generate plenty of offense from the guard positions. Leandro Barbosa started in Rondo’s place. Along with Jason Terry and Courtney Lee, Boston’s three healthy guards combined for 40 points and 11 assists. As a team, they shot better than 55% in the [...]
After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value.

He did a great job of being aggressive. He’s obviously not Rondo, but he’s just about as fast and any time you can push the tempo and force the defense to react, good things will happen. Barbosa also...
BOSTON — Jason Terry is not the same old Jet this season. No matter what his shooting percentage may be, the transition in Boston after eight seasons in Dallas has not been seamless.
There have been single-digit scoring games, like when he failed to make a basket in a win over Utah. There have been games in which he has been underused, such as the win in Washington when he clocked...

BOSTON — Anyone who claims that a dunk is only worth two points has never been in the building when a player delivered a true facial to a helpless defender.
Jeff Green produced just such a highlight-reel dunk on Wednesday, when the reserve forward bulled into the lane, elevated over Al Jefferson and slammed the ball home over the reeling Utah Jazz center. The TD Garden crowd erupted...

Two things are certain from the comments. Nets fans hate Courtney Lee. They don't like having more Celtics fans at their games than Nets fans. And, they couldn't deny the fact that they caught several breaks from the refs. They also realize that they lucked out with Rondo's absence. Enjoy today's Comments...

Another Celtics win, another Green Envy. This one turned out to be pretty easy. It seemed like the Raptors were trying to get blown out in the first half but the Celtics would have none of it. Things were different from the third quarter onward. One thing to take from Raptors fans, they hate Andrea Bargnani. They really hate him. Some were debating whether or not he's legally...
