Jeff Green and Paul Pierce have been working well together on offense.Doc Rivers recently told the media that during the playoffs, he is considering using a lineup that includes Paul Pierce and Jeff Green both starting at shooting guard and small forward. This was obviously a revelation, since what would presumably be the playoff starting lineup (Bradley-Pierce-Green-Bass-Garnett) has seen about 13 minutes together in the regular season so far. The lineup would be a study in how much the regular season matters to developing chemistry for certain teams, but it would also be an interesting experiment, and one part of that duo seems to be working extremely well together: Paul Pierce and Jeff Green.While we haven’t seen much of a Bradley-Pierce-Green-Bass-Garnett lineup, we have seen a pretty fair amount of Pierce-Green-Bass lately, which can give us an indication as to how the offense will work in the playoffs. We know what Brandon Bass will do in that lineup, since his game, while som...

After a couple weeks of shame, the Celtics got hot tonight and cruised by the Wizards for a 107-96 victory. This kinda game was inevitable. Recently, the C's have been playing down to their competition. But in this one, things were different. Let's hope they keep this kind of play up.
Tonight's USOTN goes to the surprisingly bad performance of Jeff Green. Now I'm...

Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers would prefer to have Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce at full strength, rather than see Boston go into the postseason as complete underdogs. With the health of their stars in question, though, the Celtics have some of the most intriguing NBA odds in the sportsbook.
In late January, superstar Rajon Rondo, undoubtedly the Celtics’ most valuable player...

But, of course, the news couldn't be all good, could it? Avery Bradley sat out practice with a sore collarbone that was injured when Kyrie Irving caught...
BOSTON — Brandon Bass has seldom had a play called for him in the NBA, and that is OK with him. The soft-spoken power forward usually has very little to say about himself or his team, whether after wins or losses, 20-point performances or forgettable duds, playoff games or preseason contests.
Bass’ play spoke for itself on Sunday — rather, it spoke for his teammates. By coming...
