Found April 20, 2012 on Celtics Town:
PLAYERS: Avery Bradley
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
The Boston Celtics clearly believe they can defeat Atlanta on the road during the playoffs, and the JV squad did little to squash that belief.Two thoughts from a relatively valiant loss:1. This team never quits regardless of who’s in the lineup and what the situation might be.2. Avery Bradley is developing into a legitimate monster. I’m quite happy he’s on the Celtics.

Avery Bradley, Keyon Dooling Among Players Relieving Celtics' Backcourt Concerns

Avery Bradley did his best impression of a natural point guard for more than 36 minutes on Wednesday. He brought the ball up the court, got the Celtics into their offense and then got out of the way for Paul Pierce to take care of distributing the basketball. Most importantly for the Celtics, Bradley protected the ball, entering the final 30 seconds against the Magic with only three...

Taking Stock: Celtics - Magic

After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value. Starters  Avery Bradley:  I don't know how many times I'll continue to be amazed by Avery Bradley, but I continue to be amazed by Avery Bradley.  23 points on 10-14 shooting last night?  He was huge.  Just huge.  Paul Pierce:  Truth does it again...

Celtics 102, Magic 98: Short-handed Celtics do enough to survive

If you told me at the beginning of the season that Avery Bradley and Sasha Pavlovic would start a mid-April tilt against the Orlando Magic, I would have puked on my shirt, walked into my closet to retrieve a new one, cried for 20 minutes, eaten two gallons of chocolate ice cream, and then braced myself for all sorts of ugly. But this is not the beginning of the season, so when...

Undermanned Celtics Send Message to Hawks Heading into Playoffs

The best the Atlanta Hawks could do was smile. With each basket the shorthanded Celtics scored to keep the score tight on Friday, the Hawks simply grinned as if they found the Celtics, led by Avery Bradley, Keyon Dooling and Marquis Daniels, almost cute. How adorable, the Hawks seemed to be saying, that you guys think you can hang with us. The Hawks eventually finished off a 97-92...

Recap: The Celtics are your Atlantic Division champions

The score would make it seem like this was a great game, but this was horrible to watch.  It was a disjointed mess that is fitting of two teams missing key players.  The Celtics weren't missing Paul Pierce, though.  All The Truth did was drop 29 points, including a clutch (what else) right elbow jumper and pair of free throws to go along with a career high 14 assists...

Hey! There’s Still Fantasy Basketball To Be Had Here

22% of ESPN leagues.  That’s the ownership % of Avery Bradley.  Or maybe the % of managers who are still vying for some sort of title (The true test…  David Lee was deemed out for the season over the weekend and he is still owned in 65% of leagues.  100-65 = 35% of owners still care).  Bradley has averaged 1.4 3PM 13.9/3.1/1.4/.8/.2 on 53% shooting helped by a ridiculously...
