Your Morning Dump… Where Doc reminded the guys that Pierce, KG are on the team

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. But then the Celtics got back to what they know best. Actually, it was more about who they know best: Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. “I made a point of it,” Rivers said. “I reminded our guys that Paul was...

Paul Pierce continues to impress on Halloween

It's important to always check Paul Pierce's twitter on Halloween. Sometimes you'll get pics of him and his teammates dressed up and other times you'll get him with his family. Happy Halloween from the power puff girls the professor and Merida -via @paulpierce34 Follow Celtics Life on twitter: @CelticsLife

Kevin Garnett tells Boston Celtics they need to be more like hyenas, is still awesome at metaphors

In his most introspective moments, and really at any other time of day, Kevin Garnett is prone to complex metaphors. He uses them, I think, in an attempt to simplify his own thoughts when relating them to everyone else. So it was little surprise when Garnett referred to a cackling animal when describing how his team needs to behave after Friday night’s loss to the Milwaukee Bucks...

The Battle of the Broadcasters: Tommy Heinsohn vs Gary Tanguay

Ya’ know something? I gotta’ say something right now. I’m sorry. That’s bush league by Kevin Garnett. That is bush league! They won a championship together… Gary Tanguay, CSNNE I was going to stay away from this story today but I guess it’s hard. Listening to Boston Celtics reporter, Gary Tanguay, call Kevin Garnett bush league was [...]

Bucks Spoil Home Opener 99-88

On Friday night the Celtics opened up their 2012-2013 season at home against the Milwaukee Bucks. Coming off a loss to the Miami Heat the Celtics looked to crack down on the defensive end and continue to execute on offense. Unfortunately neither of these things happened for the Celtics as they lost to the Bucks 99-88. The Celtics struggled from the start looking sloppy on offense...

Taking Stock: Celtics – Wizards

After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value. Starters Rajon Rondo:  Better effort in this one, which shows the Milwaukee was a cruise-control, front-end of a back-to-back game.  I’m still not a big fan of Rondo’s half court defense, which I feel could be better if he just took better angles when he comes off picks...

Comments from the other side - Heat 10/30

Lots of hate for the Celtics as can be expected along with some gloating over Ray's performance.   They also do a lot of whining about the refs for a team that gets more than their share of the calls. They think Wade gets no respect from the refs? How about the fact that he was allowed to push off on every drive to the basket and get away with it, which resulted in a...

Celtics 89, Wizards 86

A night after what their coach called a ''flat game,'' Kevin Garnett and the Boston Celtics held the Washington Wizards to 1-for-14 shooting at the start, then were barely better at the end. Strong defensive stands early - Washington's only scoring in the first 8 minutes came on Garnett's goaltending call - and late, plus Paul Pierce's 27 points, including...

Comments from the Other Side - Bucks 11/2

Comments after losses are usually pretty depressing. I have to say, I kind of like Bucks fans. They seem like a decent bunch who have been used to cheering for a losing team and seemed quite surprised by this win. Not much hate for the Celtics like there is in a lot of fan bases either. So, in spite of the loss, these comments aren't all that bad. Hopefully tonight we get...

Happy Halloween From Paul Pierce, Brad Marchand & Providence Bruins

A.B. From family time to visiting hospitals to hanging at a bar – who doesn’t love seeing their hometown heroes dressed up for Halloween? And if Tom Brady could convince Gisele to wear something a little more sexy than this – my Halloween would truly be complete.

The Boston Celtics grind now begins

Doc Rivers and the Celtics need to get back to worrying about getting through the regular season Opening night in the NBA for the Boston Celtics had almost everything. There was Kevin Garnett giving the Ray Allen “I will (bleeping) murder you” face, both the Celtics and the Heat played hard and the game even ended with a hard foul that has both teams riled up and ready to throw...

Celtics focus on better communication and a return to their defensive roots

If you have been to or watched any Celtics game on TV in the last 6 years, you would see either Kendrick Perkins or Kevin Garnett calling and directing defensive plays for the team.   Perk is no longer here, and Rajon Rondo has  taken up the slack. In game one, KG's voice was silenced and Rondo became indecisive with his new role as on-court leader. This was not the Rondo...
