Found May 23, 2012 on Celtics Life:
Doc Rivers today had the following to say in the Boston Globe about the Ryan Hollins and Greg Stiemsma tandem. "As this series goes on it's starting to look for us like Leon and Baby. You play one, the other one gets mad, you play the other one. And they push each other. That's what Ryan and Greg are doing for each other, and that's a good thing." Personally I prefer Stiemsma on the court over Hollins. Hollins in the playoffs so far has played 121 minutes, and has totals of 20 points, 18 rebounds, 6 blocks, 3 assists, and 0 steals. Stiemsma who has played only 97 minutes, has totals of 16 points, 29 rebounds, 11 blocks, 4 assists, and 3 steals. Statistically speaking, per 36 minutes Stiemsma is essentially twice the player Hollins is. My eyes tell me the same thing. Hollins is athletic, but almost always is on the wrong side of a box out. I know KG likes him, and obviously by the minutes breakdown, Doc does too, but I just don't see it. What about you? Al...

ESPN Report: Orlando Magic pursuing Doc Rivers for front office position

Just heard this on ESPN Sportscenter. Of course Doc won a Coach of the Year award in Orlando and still makes his home there. I don't blame the Magic for pursuing Doc. You probably can convince Dwight Howard to stay in Orlando with Doc on board. That said, Doc recently signed a multi year deal to continue as coach of the Boston Celtics, so I'd be very surprised if he left...

Greg Stiemsma, Ryan Hollins Give Celtics Energy Against Sixers, Make Good on Development From Regular Season

A storyline of this season has been how a Celtics team with a few of the parts that made it so successful in the past continues to chug along. Among the lesser highlights are the players who support the main pieces of what was a championship team just a few years ago. Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo may be the source of guts, production, leadership and bravado...

Video: Who needs the Celtics Dancers when you have our bench busting a move?

If you haven't noticed yet, during the playoffs our bench has been pretty active in cheering on our starters anytime they produce a great play. The NBA compiled the above video of their new routine, which is a "flexing" dance mostly performed by Keyon Dooling, Ryan Hollins, and Marquis Daniels. I don't know about everyone else, but personally I am appreciating...

It´s Sasha time

“I told him in our exit meetings that his talent is in him, it’s all between his ears. I think he can be a really good player. He’s still relatively young and so we’re going to try to get him out of him.” Doc Rivers Facing a potential elimination against the Sixers may not be the most indicated moment to experiment with the lineups, but Doc Rivers may be forced to do...

Ray Allen felt a better rhythm in Game 6

Think back to the Oklahoma City Thunder defeat right before the All-Star break. A team-building game, Doc Rivers called it. There’s no such thing as a team-building 15-point loss, the crowd shouted back at him. Not for these Boston Celtics.Flash forward to Game 6. A rhythm-builder, Ray Allen called it. There’s no such thing as a rhythm-building 4-for-11 from the field, including...

Rajon Rondo Hits Wall at Worst Time for Celtics, Who Need of Guard to Step Up

PHILADELPHIA -- Like a dad handing over the car keys to his son on prom night, Celtics coach Doc Rivers placed his team's fate in Rajon Rondo's hands on Wednesday. It was time to trust the point guard. Instead of triumphantly justifying Rivers' decision, however, Rondo ground the gears, spilled soda on the upholstery and returned the family sedan with a big scratch on...

Avery Bradley Dealing With Pain in Both Shoulders, Will Miss Game 5 Against Sixers

Avery Bradley's injury woes appear to have worsened. Celtics head coach Doc Rivers said before Monday's playoff game against the Philadelphia 76ers that Bradley is now experiencing pain in his right shoulder, too.
