Everyone heard about the newest addition to the Celtics roster, Shavlik Randolph signing a 10-day contract to suit up with the C’s but what people didn’t hear about is his love of music. Randolph recently discussed the role music plays in his life with Jessica Camerato of CSNNE.com:
"I love playing the piano," Randolph enthusiastically told CSNNE.com. "I love playing the piano and I do a mean Michael Jackson impression dancing."
"I started playing piano in high school for fun," Randolph explained. "I learned how to play by ear. It took me a couple of years. I usually just stick to R&B. … Boyz II Men, Brian McKnight, that's kind of what I can pick up and play easiest."
"A lot of the hotels will have (a piano)," he said. "If I'm bored, I'll go into a ballroom and find one and play. I don't play as much as I should, but it's kind of like riding a bike. Sometimes I'll be a little rusty but it's ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Doc Rivers is leaving it up to Paul Pierce whether or not he should sit out a game to help recuperate the pinched nerve in his neck.
According to Boston Globe, Courtney Lee said Pierce has a “get out of playing” card he has yet to cash in.
While it makes sense for Doc to let Pierce sit out a game if he asked for a night off, (it's not like Rivers is going to say, “No...
These are the moments Paul Pierce lives for.
The score was tied, the Celtics had possession and there was enough time for one final shot to steal a road win against one of the NBA’s elite clubs. In almost every similar situation previously, the ball has gone to Pierce, his teammates have cleared his side of the floor and the shifty veteran has gone to work for the inevitable, contested...
The looks on the Pacers faces after Jeff Green’s last second game winning layup are priceless (click to enlarge).
The Celtics just beat the Indiana Pacers (the #2 team in the East) in the second night of back to back games road games; something they’ve shockingly done twice in a row against very good opponents (Utah 9 days ago, in the “best win of the year” until now), after...
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.
“We’ve given him more time off this year than we ever have for him,” Rivers said. “In the past, we couldn’t even brooch that subject with him. This year, he wants the days off. So, I think he’s gotten...
Tomorrow, the Celtics will head back on the road for a matchup with their division-rivals, the 76ers. So far this season, the Celtics are just 1-3 against Philly and 0-1 on the road. Despite those bad numbers, the Celtics have played well recently with two consecutive victories over the Jazz and Warriors. I'm not sure that the C's will be favored tomorrow night, but I do...
Kevin Garnett found Jeff Green all alone under the basket for a layup with 0.5 seconds remaining to finish off a fourth-quarter comeback from 14 points down, and the Boston Celtics beat the Indiana Pacers 83-81 on Wednesday night.
Garnett led the Celtics with 18 points and 10 rebounds and dragged Boston back after they trailed most of the final three quarters. Green had 11 points...
7:36: The Celtics couldn't keep pace with the Pacers in the first quarter. After twelve minutes, they trail 27-19. KG leads the C's with 7 points. They'll need a lot more out of him and Pierce in the final three quarters. Keep watching.
Paul Pierce had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Avery Bradley scored 22 points to lead the Boston Celtics to a 109-101 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night.
Kevin Garnett scored 18 points to help the Celtics continued their push up the Eastern Conference standings. The Celtics entered in seventh, but were no more than two games behind the next three teams ahead in the...
Celtics 109, 76ers 101
Avery Bradley stepped into the role of defensive leader and communicator over the weekend as Kevin Garnett (along with Paul Pierce and the rest of the 35-and-over crew) missed practice to rest up in preparation before another stretch of five games in seven days. According to ESPNBoston, the 22-year-old found his voice while leading a practice group with an...

Avery Bradley has always been known to be a knack on the defensive end — whether it is on-ball defending or full-court rundown blocks — but Tuesday’s 22-point performance against the Philadelphia 76ers was a true testament to his demeanor.
Last year in his rookie campaign, he wasn’t able to flourish mainly due to multiple shoulder...
Tonight, the Celtics won a thriller in Indianapolis, 83-81. The C's trailed pretty much the whole game before a huge rally in the fourth quarter. Few words can describe the feelings that we all felt heading into last play. Boston executed the play perfectly, finding Jeff Green wide open in front of the rim for the go-ahead layup. The Pacers couldn't complete the pass on the...
To be honest, I didn't think the C's could pull this off. Trailing for most of the game and down by 14 midway through the 3rd quarter, the Celtics, I thought, were beginning to tire on the second night of back-to-back road games. But slowly their resolve surfaced. First through the Big Ticket, then through the Captain, and then on through the rest of the team - JET...
8 a.m. ET: The Celtics are in for a real test. After taking care of business with wins over the Warriors and Sixers — wins that should be expected — they drive into Indianapolis to face one of the league’s toughest up-and-coming squads.
The Pacers (38-22) are really good, especially defensively. They allow the second-fewest points per game and hold opponents to the lowest field...
