Houston fans were pretty confident coming into this game. They were even calling this match a trap game, although the Celtics had won four straight coming in. As the confidence started to die, the true colors started to come out as fans seemed to cannibalize the team, saying James Harden is there only good player and
Jeremy Lin can't score.
Greg Smith tells KG his wife smells like frankenberries....
Garnett will eat Lin alive and tell Parsons that Lin tastes like Rice Krispies. Snap! Crackle! Pop!
Didn't realize Sullinger was the next Moses Malone...

I have said a lot of mean things about Jeff Green over the three years that he has been a member of the Boston Celtics. I have compared him to former Boston Red Sox outfielder J.D Drew in the sense that he was a high-profile acquisition that didn’t pan out in the way that the team thought it would. At times, it has looked as if Jeff Green didn’t really care all that much on the...
On the first-year anniversary of his heart surgery, Jeff Green celebrated it by submitting 14 points (on 5-of-9 shooting), 3 rebounds, 1 steal and 1 block in helping lead the C's to an 87-79 win over Phoenix.

New York Knicks “Linsanity” merchandise may not be completely worthless after the team let point guard Jeremy Lin sign with the Houston Rockets last summer, but it’s pretty close. Dick’s Sporting Goods in Connecticut is selling Linsanity T-shirts on the clearance rack for $1 according to the picture below. They were originally selling for $22. What...
On January 9, 2012, Jeff Green was laying on a surgical table preparing for surgery to repair a damage aortic root aneurysm.
After undergoing urgent heart surgery, Green laid on a hospital bed faced with his biggest adversity ahead of him. While recovering, Green missed the entire 2012 NBA season with his future of returning to the league unknown.

BOSTON — Jeff Green remembers his first steps.
He remembers the pain of those few tentative steps, then how out of breath he was when he finally cracked the imposing 10-step barrier. Every moment and milestone of his recovery is seared into his brain as part of what he calls the “wonderful journey” that he is still living through.
The key word there is “living.” One year...

Jeff Green and Jared Sullinger both contributed heavily to the 87-79 win over the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday. Jeff Green had a team-high 14 points off of the bench. Jared Sullinger had 12 points and a career-high 16 rebounds. Here are video highlights of their play, courtesy of OfficialCeltics.
Green's back to back huge dunks helped pace a great effort by the Boston reserves.
I was at the Garden for the Celtics victory over the Suns yesterday. While I noticed that Doc gave the bench an opportunity to win the game by leaving them out there for much of the 4th quarter, I had no idea exactly how unusual the night was until I got home and looked at the numbers. ...
The Celtics, currently on a four game win streak, will play the second game of a five game home stand tonight when they face the Houston Rockets. The Rockets are 21-15 and seem to know what they're doing. James Harden has been hot lately, and Lin has evolved into a solid point guard. I think the Celtics can win tonight, but they'll have to play much better than they did on...
The Celtics are over .500 once again. I don’t think any of us expected this to be such an accomplishment before the season began, but here we are. And honestly, after holding the Suns to just 79 points on 39.3% shooting from the field, I think we can agree that it’s really really good to be back.Let’s get to tonight’s bullet points:If we pretend getting the first bullet point...
The ''Big Three'' leading Boston to its latest win was an unlikely bunch.
Jeff Green, Jason Terry and rookie Jared Sullinger carried the Celtics through a game of streaks, each outscoring their starting teammates as Boston recovered from a dreadful third quarter and held off the slumping Phoenix Suns 87-79 on Wednesday night.
Green had 14 points, Terry scored 13...
Somewhere in the muddle and mistakes and missed chances marking Royce White's growing schism between himself and the team that believed in him despite glaring red flags is a more common challenge facing NBA organizations.
As White spews on his Twitter timeline his personal struggles and enmity toward the Rockets, who suspended him this week for failing to report to his D-League...

Paul Pierce led the way with 23 points, and had two key hoops that held off a Houston 4th quarter rally and propelled the Celtics to a 103-91 victory.
In Wednesday night's win over Phoenix the Celtics top 3 scorers all came off of the bench (Green 14, Terry 13, and Sullinger 12). The subs continued that trend through the...
Another good win for the Celtics. I love opposing fans that admit that the refs are helping them. Lots of love for Sully, and well deserved. Respect for Avery as well, again, well deserved. I've highlighted my favorites in bold. What are yours?
Run, run, run and we should win. Boston prefers a slower pace.
KG tries to start a fight with Toney. We win by 11...
Paul Pierce scored 16 of his 23 points in the second half and Kevin Garnett added 17 points and four blocks Friday night as the Boston Celtics nearly blew a 17-point lead before pulling away late in a 103-91 victory over the Houston Rockets.
The Celtics extended their season-high winning streak to five games, but only after surviving a 12-0 run that pulled the Rockets within two...
After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value.
Offense: Defense: Overall:
Kind of a blah effort from Rondo for most of the night. He looked aggressive early, and he had spurts of energy, but overall, not much to speak of. He had more energy directing the defense from the bench...
