PLAYERS: Jason Terry
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
Jason Terry is not about to let his subpar night against the Heat (3-9 shooting), or his subpar season (10 points per game) defuse his trash talk game. Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston had this quote from Terry about tomorrow night's game with the 20-59 Magic. Jason Terry dubs Orlando game a must win. Asked why, he notes, “I don’t want to give them any fuel, but they’re terrible.” — Chris Forsberg (@ESPNForsberg) April 13, 2013 Not going to lie, it made me chuckle. Kind of like when people say "no offense" and then say something very offensive. "I don't want to give them any fuel" --- ok makes sense, let sleeping dogs (or in this case a sleeping terrible basketball team) lie. BUT "They're terrible" --- oh.. Awesome JET! But seriously, Terry is dead wrong. The next important game the Celtics play will be next weekend when they open up the playoffs. Get Pierce and Garnett 1-2 more games to shake off the rust, and make sure Green's e...

Comments from the Other Side - Magic 4/13

At least JET's trash talk didn't come back to bite him in this game.  The terrible Magic lived up to their reputation.  I'm with Orlando fans on this one, though.  I really wish he's just be quiet.  We don't need to give teams any added motivation.  They all hate the Celtics enough already as it is.  It sure was good to get a convincing victory for once...

Rondo heard about his torn ACL from a radio report

Rajon Rondo spoke about his ACL injury with ESPN’s Hannah Storm. After getting an MRI, Rondo said he first heard about the torn ACL from a radio reporter: On the way back, I heard on the radio that Rondo might have a torn ACL. I was like… We just got the results, there’s no way possible. I knew the reporter and was like, “How does he know this thing?” I just left the hospital...

Rajon Rondo: It's Frustrating Not To Be On The Floor

It has been nearly three months since it was announced that Boston Celtics All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo had a torn ACL in his right knee and would likely miss the rest of the season. It had already been an up and down season in which the aging veterans on the roster were attempting to make one last run at hanging an 18th banner in the rafters at TD Garden.   Since that fateful...

An Emotional Tribute to the Old Boston Garden

While preparing for an upcoming column, I stumbled across this emotional tribute to the original Boston Garden. I remember this actual report when it aired 2 decades ago. At the tender age of 14, I had the good fortune of visiting the original Boston Garden. Always looking so beautiful on television, the parquet floor glistened and the banners that crowded the Garden rafters made...

Kevin Garnett in a walking boot after last night, Danny Ainge says it's for 'precautionary reasons'

Kevin Garnett has already been ruled out of tomorrow night's game with the Heat due to a sore ankle, and after last night's game with the Nets, KG was spotted in a walking boot. With barely a week to go before the playoffs start—that's not good. Today Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge made his weekly appearance on WEEI's "Salk and Holley...

3 reasons why this Celtics vs Heat game tonight might still be worth watching

What will Green do for an encore? Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett aren't going to play in Miami this evening.  Dwyane Wade is, but LeBron and Chris Bosh are still up in the air.  Neither team cares about winning this game; at all.  The playoffs are a week away, and the rest of the regular season is basically meaningless.  Especially for the Heat, who have already locked up...

Rajon Rondo, To Trade Or Not To Trade, That is the Question

Boston Celtics: Should They Trade Rajon Rondo? Do the Boston Celtics trade Rajon Rondo, or do they keep him?

Video: Brandon Bass thumps Brook Lopez at the rim

The Brooklyn Nets defeated the Boston Celtics 101-93 on Wednesday. The Celtics Brandon Bass took some of the game’s frustration out on the rim and Nets center Brook Lopez. Lopez certainly was not backed down as hard as some people were this season were ( i.e. Jason Terry), but he was backed down all the same. Please click here to read this story.

Celtics vs. Heat this time around doesn’t have the same Miami vs. Boston buzz that we’re used to but is still important

The Celtics-Heat rivalry has been strong ever since the self-proclaimed King James decided to famously take his talents to South Beach.  Miami had the talent, but Boston had the experience—up until last year when the new big three, donning Miami red, captured the allusive NBA championship and Boston and Miami’s roles were immediately changed.  Tonight will most definitely have...

Jeff Green Dunks All Over The Heat

 Follow @TheNosebleeds Jeff Green is not afraid. The swing forward has been a matchup nightmare for Celtics opponents since finding his stride in the second half of the 2012-13 season, but he has been particularly effective against smaller lineups. As you can see in this video, when the Heat throw out a small lineup with Chris Andersen at the 5, Jeff makes posters. His emergence...
