Jeff Green’s bucket at the buzzer gave the Celtics a 93-92 victory over the Cavs last week. It was a game Boston had no business winning. The Celtics lead the seaso...

AROUND THE WEB
When players miss games for ambiguous “personal reasons,” fans are left to wonder just how important those reasons were. In Paul Pierce‘s case, they were important personally — but also for the team, if Pierce’s prediction turns out to be true.
The Celtics linchpin skipped Monday night’s game because his first son was being born. He announced the news to WEEI on Wednesday...
Jeff Green has been playing the basketball of his life. His emergence is one of the few positive signs that the Celtics nation can hold onto going into the Playoffs. How well has he been playing? Steve Bulpett of Boston Herald has an interesting piece of stats:
Green is averaging 21.4 points in his 10 games as a starter, a figure that would make him the Celtics’ overall leader...
More postgame interviews as they become available. On a side note, congrats to Paul Pierce and his wife on their newborn son Prince Pierce.

Iron Man did it again! Jeff Green has put up another monstrous performance with 34 points (13-19 FG), 6 rebounds and 4 blocks and the Celtics avoided getting swept by the Pistons in regular season for the first time since 2006-07. Green's numbers are impressive by themselves, but it should also be mentioned that a few of those points and rebounds were really, really crucial....
Jeff Green has been all smiles since March hitDoc Rivers spoke in practice about Green’s starting gig once KG gets back, saying that he has wanted to start the Georgetown product for quite some time, but his play has only recently justified that decision (via ESPN Boston):“I was hoping (to start Green consistently at some point),” Rivers said. “That was my intention. We weren’t...
BOSTON — The doubts are raised after every disappointing shooting night. In some cases, they pop up even more suddenly, such as any offensive possession that passes without a replay-worthy dunk. Jeff Green exists in only two versions in the eyes of some observers: the game-dominating freak of nature or the milquetoast waste of four years and $36 million weighing down a Celtics...

There is some encouraging news out of practice today. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett participated in practice today with Doc saying that there were no restrictions on either one of them. But, of course, the news couldn't be all good, could it? Avery Bradley sat out practice with a sore collarbone that was injured when Kyrie Irving caught...
BOSTON - The Boston Celtics lost a close one to the Cleveland Cavaliers Friday night at TD Garden 97-91. The Celtics were without their two leaders; Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. Garnett is still out with an ankle inflammation, and…
8 a.m. ET: The last time the Celtics and Cavaliers met up, Jeff Green provided a thrilling ending. The Celtics would probably prefer if things were not so exciting this time.
Having snapped their two-game losing streak with a victory over the Pistons on Wednesday, the Celtics (39-36) are back in action. Their opponent is the Cavs (22-52), who are having a forgettable season despite...
With a game like this, following a losing skid that has seen the Celtics drop 7 of their past 10 game, it would be easy to blame the injuries to Garnett or any other member of this decimated team but these recent losses are starting to become a cause for concern. The team is limping towards the playoffs and is in danger of losing its position in the seeding. To make matters worse...
Celtics fans can relax a bit before playoffs start the last week of this month as they know their team will be one of the contenders. The only question left is who they will face in the first round!Coach Doc Rivers stated that he would rather not play Miami in the first round but that his team will be prepared to face anyone! Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett re-affirmed this by saying...
Jeff Green scored 34 points, including a 3-pointer with 45 seconds left to snap Boston's two-minute scoring drought, and the Celtics clinched a playoff berth by beating the Detroit Pistons 98-93 on Wednesday night.
Paul Pierce and Brandon Bass scored 17 apiece for the Celtics, who had lost two in a row and seven of their previous nine. But the victory, coupled with Philadelphia...
It's always sad for me to see fans rooting for a loss in order to tank for a better draft choice. I've never quite been able to get to the point where I want my team to lose, for any reason. I can understand other fans not liking Tommy's Celtics homerism, but to wish harm on him is pretty classless. The guy has 10 rings as both player and coach and has forgotten...
After resting in the Cavs' last game because of a previous shoulder injury, New Jersey native Kyrie Irving should be at nearly 100 percent this evening in Cleveland vs the Nets
When: 7:00 PM; Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013
Where: Quicken Loans Arena; Cleveland, OH
TV: WWOR (Channel 9 for most New Yorkers)
It was like watching a Browns game. There were expectations. Kyrie Irving’s return in a matchup of premier point guards, Byron Scott coaching against his former Eastern Conference Champion team, a chance for some revenge on Brook Lopez. Former Cavs head coach Mike Fratello on the sidelines calling the game for the Nets YES network, probably fresh off a visit to his...
