Found March 20, 2013 on Celtics Life:
The New Orleans Hornets defeated the Boston Celtics 87 to 86  at the New Orleans arena tonight. In a classic hangover game for the C’s, they looked a little drained from tip-off. They had a small lead going into the half, but then decided to do the OPPOSITE of what the Heat did in the second half and not score at all. This woeful offensive showing let the Hornets back in the game, letting them lead throughout. The game was decided by a crazy tip-in with .3 seconds left for the Hornets seal the deal. The first half lead was spurred by Jeff Green picking up where he left off, attacking the basket early and often. The Celtics tired legs showed tonight, as they only scored 6 fast break points and were outrebounded 28 to 45. The Hornets pressured the ball really well tonight, causing many turnovers for Avery Bradley.  Even though the Hornets are bottom feeders in the west, they hung in this game. Greivis Vasquez is a good player and wasn’t intimidated by Bradley’s defense at all. Vas...

Avery Bradley and the "Not in My House" Block of the Night

The Boston Celtics/Miami Heat game Monday night was everything that it was supposed to be--close, hard fought, and chock full of killer plays by both teams. For example, take Avery Bradley's block on Norris Cole. While it wasn't one of those 'in the seats' rejections it was a perfect example of what you can do if you want to bad enough and hustle. Paul Pierce...

5 Things Celtics must do to win tonight - Mavericks 3/22

Well, great. Tonight, the Celtics play the Mavericks down in Dallas. Boy, I just can't wait to watch them struggle against another awful team. This last week really only had one hard game scheduled(the Heat game), which they lost. I'm fine with that one, but not the close home wins or the loss in New Orleans. Anyway, if they attempt to follow these five things they might...

Jeff Green, Celtics Have Proven They Can Play With Elites, But Need to Take Care of Business Against Dregs

Well, that was awkward. Just two days after the world could not stop singing the Celtics’ praises after a loss, of all things, the green team went out Wednesday and laid an egg in the second half in the Big Easy. With the aid of a putrid third quarter, in which they shot 5-for-18 and mustered all of 12 points, the Celtics squandered a comfortable lead for the second time in two...

Recap: Celtics choke, lose to Hornets again

We’ve got ourselves a new candidate for worst loss of the season, folks. After a pretty comfortable first and sloppy, but still positive second, the Celtics came out in the third quarter and absolutely sucked.  They got down as much as 9 in the 4th before coming back to take a 5 point lead with 1:32 left.  But they never scored again, New Orleans went on a 6-0 run over the last...

Comments from the Other Side - Hornets 3/20

The fans posting on the Hornets' boards have become very few, but I guess you can't blame them.  It's pretty funny to see fans who are set on tanking and getting the best draft pick suddenly want to win just because it's the Celtics.   The Celtics should not have lost this game.  They pretty much beat themselves.   There is something very wrong when the bench...

Game #66 Recap: LeBron James Overshadows Jeff Green’s Career Night as Miami Extends Winning Streak to 23

BOSTON -- They’ve won close games. They’ve won in blowout fashion. And on Monday night, against their arch-rival, the Miami Heat overcame a career night from Jeff Green to win their 23rd straight game.

Loss to Heat Provides Blueprint to Rediscovering Form

The Boston Celtics-Miami Heat matchup had it all. One team came in boasting a historical winning streak, while the other continued to defy the odds with every passing week. One team sat atop the Eastern Conference, while the other was busy fighting and clawing its way up the standings. One team featured arguably the best player in the NBA right now, while the other featured a former...

Ainge: 'Jeff Green has proven he deserves to be on the court most minutes'

Danny Ainge went on "The Big Show" this afternoon and talked about the suddenly struggling C's. Ben Rohrbach of WEEI.com's 'Green Street' broke down the interview here (link), and in it Ainge spoke about the recent play of Jeff Green, and whether or not he should be playing more. I think Jeff is starting to prove and has proven to Doc that he deserves...

Comments from the Other Side - Heat 3/18

I really, really dislike the Heat and their fans.  The majority of  Heat fans became fans when LeBron arrived.  They are fair weather fans  who trash their own players constantly when they miss a play or don't shoot well.  .  They also talk about how Celtics fans are complaining about the refs and then turn around and complain about the refs and the truth is that no team...

The Celtics didn't win, but they sent a message to Miami tonight: 'see you in the playoffs'

"There's no such thing as a good loss." I'd say that I agree with the above statement 99% of the time. Especially in professional sports. But the Celtics 105-103 loss to the Heat to the Heat tonight falls in the other 1%. Sure the loss sucked something fierce. A 17 point 1st half lead and a 13 point cushion with 8:27 to go fell by the wayside. Boston turned the...
