Found November 23, 2012 on Celtics Life:
PLAYERS: Kris JosephFab Melo
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
The Maine Red Claws won their season opener 123-115 tonight. Normally we wouldn't report on this, but this year's squad has two of the Celtics rookies on it, Kris Joseph and Fab Melo. Joseph scored at will finishing with 28 points (and 9 rebounds). While Doc has said he expects (or wants) Melo to dominate in the D-League (very few big men to compete with) Fab finished with a measly 2 points and 1 rebound. He did block a Stiemsmaesque 4 shots, so at least he had that. You can watch the game in the video above.

Rondo The Silent Killer: YOUR 2012-2013 NBA MVP

I just got back from an 8-hour drive this Saturday with only one thing on my mind…except for a couple X-rated things.

Recap: Celtics salvage season with huge victory over Thunder

So I may have reached a bit with my headline, but I needed that win. Fueled by Paul Pierce and Jeff Green, the Celtics beat the Oklahoma City Thunder, 108-100.

The defense came alive (in the 2nd and 3rd quarters...

Finley, Dixon and McDyess all preparing for NBA comebacks
