Found February 01, 2013 on Celtics Life:
The Boston Celtics won their third-straight game without Rajon Rondo on the floor. With a 97-84 trouncing of the Orlando Magic, Boston is back at .500. Their 23-23 record has them holding tight for the eight-seed in the Eastern Conference. The Magic fans seem fairly reserved to their fate as a cellar team in the East right now, and could definitely use some sort of pick-me-up. Top Three: 1: 146 days until draft day.  2: Turk is shooting 4% from three this year. Four.....four....FOUR. 3: Pierce is 3 assists away from a triple-double... Huh? Play of the Game: Boston getting a lot of sympathy for their injuries: I liked him, but I’m glad that we got Nicholson over Sullinger. Mostly the same player, one has a back problem and the other doesn’t though Full Slate: well at least we're pissing Doc Rivers off with this late run  Top five Eastern Point Guard Leaders in points created (combo of their points and points on assists) 1. Holiday 41.4 2. Irving 3...

From The Invisible Man, to Iron Man

Back in mid-2011 when the Boston Celtics (infamously) traded for Jeff Green, many C's fans had different views on what he could bring to the Green. Personally, I was pretty optimistic about Green, as he was averaging 13 PPG & 5 RPG, in 32 minutes per contest, of course as a starter in Oklahoma City. Jeff Green had appeared to be a fixture for the future of OKC along with...

A Green Uprising

Depleted as the Celtics currently are they still have enough in their tank to demolish an equally-depleted Magic squad tonight, 97-84.  One of the heroes of tonight's contest was Jeff Green who was absolutely electric with three (or was it four?) emphatic slams en route to registering 17 points, 4 boards, 4 dimes and 3 blocks in 29 minutes off the bench.  And I like how he...

Rajon Rondo’s Torn ACL Could Force Celtics to Shuffle Players at Trade Deadline

For much of the 2012-13 season, it appeared as though the Boston Celtics might be able to hang on to their spot among the Eastern Conference’s elite, that no longer seems to be the case. Not on the NBA moneyline, at least, where their odds of winning the NBA championship have dipped to 30-1. This, we’ll remind you, is a team whose been a mainstay within the NBA futures’ top...
