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...

Making the case for Jared Sullinger as a starter

No matter how much we want to make it all about Pierce, Garnett and Rondo we can't discount the importance of the role players.  During the preseason, there were rumblings of whether or not Brandon Bass or Jared Sullinger should start. Three games into this banner chase, it is plain to see that Sully is the better fit with the starters. This isn't an indictment on Bass...

Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo Must Do More Than Post Empty Stats And Other Impressions From Celtics' Win Over Wizards

At first glance, this was a solid night's work for the Celtics' trio of All-Stars. Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett finished with reasonably strong statistics, and if the Celtics adhered to the mantra that any win is a good win, then everyone might have gone home happy. But none of those three played as well as their stat lines might suggest, and...

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 - 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...

Celtics win ugly, beating Wizards reserves by 3

(We had a late scratch for the recap, but longtime reader Jenda has stepped in with a guest recap). Let's start with bad news. The first quarter was a fluke. Randy Wittman and his assistants still have to gel together as a coaching staff and they take a little longer to get into the game. They did so in second quarter and outscored the Celts 30-23. Most damage was done inside...

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...
