Rajon Rondo and the C's setting historic pace

What Rondo has done so far this season has been nothing short of incredible By now it's pretty well known that Rajon Rondo is on a historic run in the assist department. In fact, if Rondo can pick up ten helpers tonight, it will mark the 37th consecutive game he has done so, tying him with John Stockton for the 2nd longest streak in NBA history. Impressive, but also not breaking...

Jason Terry Glides in Reebok Answer 4′s

Jason Terry wore a pair of retro Rebook Iverson Answer IV’s last night in the Celtics win over the Thunder. The Answer IV is the same model AI wore while stepping over Celtic’s coach Tyronn Lue in the 2001 playoffs. Terry has been doing a lot to bring “Reebok Back” in Boston. This colorway of the Answer IV release a few months back and sold out quickly. You can still...

Jason Terry's big shot motivation

Last night Jason Terry hit a buzzer beating three pointer to give the C's a 48-45 lead at halftime.  With 3:27 to go in the 4th he nailed a big jumper to help fend off OKC's rally, and keep the Boston lead in double digits.  At the 2:28 mark he knocked another 3 that would have extended the Celtics lead to 10, but it was waived off because of a foul away from the ball....

Paul Pierce and KG - 1995 All American

Just thought I'd share a bit of nostalgia. Above is the 1995 All American High School Slam Dunk Contest featuring Paul Pierce, Kris Clack and Vince Carter. Carter eventually won but The Captain had some impressive dunks as well and made it to the Finals. After the Jump you'll see some of the highlights from the 1995 McDonalds All American game.  This was one of the...

Jameer Nelson Breaks Paul Pierce Ankle (Video)

Ouch Paul, very ouch.  One of the worst crossover broken ankles I've seen in a very long time.  Jameer Nelson made a little head fake on Paul last night and Pierce bit hard, really hard.  He fell strait backwards and his right leg bent behind him and got trapped under his body.  Pierce would stay in the game and end up dropping 23 points (Jameer had 20.)  The Celtics also...

Rajon Rondo Continues Streak But C’s Keep Struggling

Photo by Jared Wickerham/Getty Images Rajon Rondo resumes his spectacular point guard play recording his 35th consecutive game with 10 or more assists–two shy of John Stockton and 11 shy of Magic Johnson for the NBA all-time assist record. Aside from Rondo’s quest, the Celtics struggle to gain momentum early in the 2012-13 season losing back-to-back contests to the Detroit Pistons...

Here’s Jameer Nelson hitting Paul Pierce with a crossover that sends him to the ground

Paul Pierce had a good game in their 116-110 overtime victory over the Magic Sunday night. But while Pierce poured in 23 points on the offensive end, all we want to talk about is how he almost lost a leg on the defensive end to a crossover dribble from Magic guard Jameer Nelson. Gotta move those feet, Paul. The post Here’s Jameer Nelson hitting Paul Pierce with a crossover that...

Experience wins in Celtics OT win

Paul Pierce has done this a million times. Early in games, late in games, in the middle, it does not matter when. Pierce knows exactly how to finish things off and how to brush off any failures. When he stepped into a wide-open 3-pointer with 2:10 left in overtime to break a 108-108 tie, it was old hat for him. For the Magic, it is not quite second nature to win these close games...

Recap: Celtics salvage season with huge victory over Thunder

So I may have reached a bit with my headline, but I needed that win. Fueled by Paul Pierce and Jeff Green, the Celtics beat the Oklahoma City Thunder, 108-100. While Pierce and Green deserve credit for strong individual performances, this truly was a team effort. The Celtics had 8 offensive rebounds. The bench cranked out 35 points. The defense came alive (in the 2nd and 3rd quarters...

Celtics 108, Thunder 100

Paul Pierce scored 22 of his 27 points in the second half and the Boston Celtics snapped a two-game losing streak by beating the Oklahoma City Thunder 108-100 on Friday night. Kevin Garnett had 18 points and nine rebounds for the Celtics, who led by as many as 14 in the second half and held on after the Thunder cut it to three points with under 2 minutes remaining. Rajon Rondo had...

Kevin Garnett, Celtics Defense Uncharacteristically Having Trouble Defending Pick and Roll

A little less than one-fifth into the season, the Celtics are still trying to solve some problems in an area that typically is their biggest strength. Following Sunday’s overtime win over the Orlando Magic, the Celtics were two games above .500 but had allowed their opponents to score triple-digits in four straight games, and five out of the last six. Doc Rivers was blunt about...

Green Envy: What Magic fans said - 11/25

Honestly, it's kind of hard to have any gripes with Magic fans. Everything they had to say was surprisingly rational. I only say surprisingly because reasonable thinking is not usually a staple of this segment. The Magic fans obviously feel they got the short end of the stick in the Bass deal and have a lot of hate for Big Baby. Mostly, they accepted the fact that they probably...

Celtics Locker Room Video: Jeff Greens Says Beating His Old Team Means “Nothing”

After having his best night of the season and helping the Celtics beat the Thunder 108-100, Jeff Green said he was not motivated by the fact that he used to play for the Thunder. Jason Terry was another Celtic who had a big night, scoring 16 points wich included a huge three-pointer with 36 seconds [...]
