WALTHAM, Mass. -- Jason Terry does not come across as one for statistics. The 35-year-old combo guard seems to be more into counting game-turning 3-pointers and making bold boasts with his body ink. The former Sixth Man of the Year recently saw one stat he took seriously, though. A week before opening his first training camp with the Boston Celtics, Terry was told exactly how many points the Celtics bench scored in their Game 7 loss to the Miami Heat in last season's Eastern Conference Finals.

Courtney Lee Says He Picked Celtics for 'Core Group' Rather Than Taking More Money Elsewhere

WALTHAM, Mass. -- Courtney Lee knew what he was looking for when he joined the Boston Celtics. The guard said Sunday he came to Boston from Houston after a sign-and-trade deal because of "the core group of guys they had here," even though he could have made more money playing somewhere else. "The expectations every year for this team is to win big, and that's one...

Courtney Lee, Avery Bradley Say They Don't Care Who Starts as Long as Celtics Win

Avery Bradley played so well for the Celtics last season that he was expected to take the starting spot for good as the Celtics reloaded for another title run this year. But with the additions of Courtney Lee and Jason Terry in the backcourt, and Bradley still recovering from surgery on each of his shoulders in the offseason, the starting role has become more complicated. That suits...
