Celtics' Rondo, Sullinger visit Boys & Girls Club

Sharp passes aren’t the only things Celtics players Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger were dishing out this Thanksgiving. The pair made their way to the Jordan Boys & Girls Club in Chelsea, Mass., to celebrate a holiday treat. The Boston Celtics’ charity, the Shamrock Foundation, made a gift of musical resources to the local children. Rondo and Sullinger jumped right in and...

Myths about Celtics and rebounding just won't stop

Another day passes and another article is written on Celtics being bad at rebounding. This is not a shocker, as the author of the article agrees, and he also acknowledges that (well, he acknowledges that Doc acknowledges that) you don't need to lead the rebounding stats to win games, Miami and Knicks being other cases in point. However, there is still an issue according to Blakely...

Recap: Spurs handle the Celtics inside & out in a 112-100 loss

This just in: the Spurs are REALLY good. Between their incredible chemistry and remarkable passing, it was just too much for the Celtics to handle. Whether it was the FIFTY EIGHT points inside the paint or the 8-of-16  shooting from downtown, the Spurs just showed the Celtics what a title contender looks like a 112-100 loss. Thiago Splitter led the way with 23 points on 9-of -11...

Rajon Rondo, Celtics Take Championship Odds to First True Test Against Oklahoma City

Unable to truly grab traction at the start of the 2012-13 campaign, the Boston Celtics will get an early-season test against the reigning Western Conference champion, the Oklahoma City Thunder, on Friday. Although the veterans of Beantown have lost a handful of games they probably shouldn’t have, they aren’t ruled out as contenders on the NBA futures. With 25-1 odds of winning...

Preview: San Antonio Spurs vs. Boston Celtics

The 8-3 San Antonio Spurs are coming into town and playing inthe Garden tonight at 7:30.  I continue to consider the Spurs the ‘Celtics of the West’ as they both seem to have an aging core, a great head coach, and strong bench scoring.  They are one spot ahead of the Celtics in assists per game (2nd to the Celtics’ 3rd), and both teams are having trouble rebounding the ball...

Kenyon Martin Talk May Be Premature As Celtics Are In No Hurry to Fill Darko Milicici’s Roster Spot

When Darko Milicic took his leave from the Celtics this week, many fans immediately recognized what that meant. Their team now had an open roster spot, and there was a name on the list of free agents who most of them recognized. Kenyon Martin has become the name du jour for Celtics fans, much like Austin Rivers was the guy everybody wanted to know about in the run-up to the draft...

The San Antonio Spurs (8-3) will take a trip to Boston as they face the Boston Celtics (6-5) at the TD Garden. The Spurs are coming off a loss to the Clippers and will have to face the Celtics shorthanded. They will be without Kawhi Leonard and Stephen Jackson due to injuries thus leaving their frontcourt very thin. The Celtics are coming off a big loss to the Pistons but...

Duncan to notch another milestone

San Antonio Spurs' Tim Duncan has spent all 15 seasons with the Spurs. All those accolades, NBA titles, All-Star appearances were with the silver and black. In total, Duncan has played in 1,122 and should he suit up versus the Boston Celtics tomorrow night, he will pass former NBA player Hal Greer on the all-time NBA list of most games played with one team for an entire career...

Tim Duncan and the most important decision in recent NBA history

What if it had been Duncan with Doc in Orlando instead of T-Mac? Rob Bradford had a great look today at just how close Doc came to coaching Tim Duncan in Orlando back in the Summer of 2000. A dozen years have clouded the memory but reality is that Duncan was extremely close to spurning the Spurs and heading to Disney World just 3 years into his career. Doc, who was just one year...

Bye Bye, Darko

It looks like Darko Milicic will be leaving the Celtics and heading back to Europe, according to Doc Rivers’ quotes from the Dennis and Callahan radio show this morning.  While I think this has little to no effect on the team from a basketball perspective, it’s kind of sad from a fan perspective.  It was fun to hope for the reincarnation of one of the biggest draft busts...
