Terry: We'll see Heat in the playoffs

Jason Terry is confident that the Celtics will meet the Heat in the playoffs and that there will be "fireworks." He had more to say.

Video: Avery Bradley posterizes Ed Davis

I like how Bradley just handles his business and runs back on defense. No need to show up Davis with extended mean mugging after the dunk. And unlike DeAndre Jordan and LeBron James dunking on MUCH smaller players, here we have Bradley, who's not much taller than 6 feet, dunking on a legit 6'10" big man. Much more impressive.

Your Morning Dump… Where the basketball gods messed with the Celtics

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. “We absolutely deserved to lose the game, whether we won it or not,” said Celtics coach Doc Rivers. “We deserved to lose the game.” “We just can’t play down to anybody,” said Avery Bradley. “We...

Video: Pierce & KG highlights vs New Orleans

Multiple media reporting he will have an MRI back in Boston on Monday...

Underrated Stat of the Night - Grizzlies 3/23

Tonight's 110-106 loss to the Grizzlies was filled with ups and downs. The Celtics got off to nice start, but slipped in the second and third quarters. Their fourth quarter contained a rally that didn't start until about the 6:00 mark. Had it started earlier, they definitely would've won. But it didn't. What's done is done. Tonight's USOTN easily goes to...

Celtics Road Woes Continue with 110-106 Loss to the Grizzlies

Just a few random thoughts for tonight's post game wrap up.  First, KG's injury is troubling.  He didn't seem to injure the foot in the game but they said he was walking gingerly afterwards.   It is being described as a foot injury rather than an ankle injury. And the fact that they are going to take an MRI makes it even more worrisome.    I remember back in that...

Tired and Uninspired: Boston Celtics lose to Dallas Mavericks

Jason Terry was uninspiring in his return to Dallas.Eight-point leads are such a tease.On a night when most people were more interested in the college basketball games on TV, the Celtics looked equally uninterested in the proceedings. Every time Boston went on a run and cut the lead to six, eight or ten points, the Mavericks responded with a 3-pointer or a pair of baskets to push...

Jazz-Mavericks Preview

The Dallas Mavericks are slowly climbing back into the Western Conference playoff picture. The Utah Jazz are aiding that ascent. Dallas tries to Utah for ninth place in the West on Sunday night when the Jazz try to prevent their first nine-game road skid in 31 seasons. The Mavericks (33-36), who are tied with Portland, have split their last six games since a 4-0 run, but they...
