The screencaps on this Keith Bogans foul look worse than the GIF. Look, if Bogans snaps Leandro Barbosa’s neck, then we might be talking flagrant. He’s only holding Leandro’s neck to prevent him from crashing to the floor. That’s just tough Brooklyn Nets playoff basketball right there – in November.

Last night’s Celtics/Nets game got a little testy late in the second quarter, when Boston’s Leandro Barbosa appeared to have an easy look at a basket in transition before being grabbed by Brooklyn’s Keith Bogans from behind. The play appeared to be an obvious candidate for a flagrant foul call, which turned out to actually [...]
BOSTON — Anyone who claims that a dunk is only worth two points has never been in the building when a player delivered a true facial to a helpless defender.
Jeff Green produced just such a highlight-reel dunk on Wednesday, when the reserve forward bulled into the lane, elevated over Al Jefferson and slammed the ball home over the reeling Utah Jazz center. The TD Garden crowd erupted...

The Celtics, after their big win in Chicago, head back to the Garden tonight to host the Utah Jazz. This won't be noticeable, but earlier today the C's sent Kris Joseph and Fab Melo down to the D-League. So if you for some reason thought they would play, they won't. Here are today's five things that the Celtics must do to win tonight:
Gerald Wallace has already missed five straight games. Tonight will mark his sixth. The Brooklyn Nets forward has been working his way back from a sprained left ankle. However, he is not quite ready to take the court again. Wallace initially suffered the injury in the season-opener. He has not played since and is following team instructions for his rehab, says Mike Mazzeo...

Brook Lopez has the athleticism of a rock. He leaps like a picnic table, floats like a brick, and dunks with the strength of a six-year-old girl. He’s about as explosive as wet gunpowder, and his top speed is slower than dial-up internet.
Most rocks are far more athletic than Jason Collins. Honorable mention to Tyson Chandler, who loses because Brook Lopez dunked it backwards...
CSNNE's Sherrod Blakely posted a piece on Al Jefferson's return to Boston after the Celtics-Jazz game on Wednesday night. While most of the discussion about Big Al related to Jeff Green's monster dunk on him, Jefferson scored 13 points and grabbed 14 rebounds against the Celtics, and Doc Rivers highly touted his former player:
"He just keeps getting better and...

"OOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHH!!!!!!" (Courtesy of @Jose3030)Show of hands: Whose hearts are still racing after that game? Everybody? I’m not the only one? Cool. Just making sure.Let’s skip the foreplay (Boston won 98-93 in a hard-fought game, blah blah) and get right into the bullet points:Jeff Green! Green was fantastic. He got to the line more than anyone besides Paul Pierce...
After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value.
Offense: Defense: Overall:
He did a great job of being aggressive. He’s obviously not Rondo, but he’s just about as fast and any time you can push the tempo and force the defense to react, good things will happen. Barbosa also...
Paul Pierce hit two free throws with 19.5 seconds left and finished with 23 points, lifting the Boston Celtics to a 98-93 win over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night.
Jeff Green and Leandro Barbosa each scored 16 points for the Celtics, who won for the fifth time in six games. Kevin Garnett added 11 points and eight rebounds.
Boston's Rajon Rondo had 10 assists before leaving...
Okay, so the picture of Leandro Barbosa getting pulled down by Keith Bogans in last night's Brooklyn game looked worse than it actually was but with The Blur joking about it as a possible future UFC match, we wondered how that match would play out.
Of course, I imagined it going down in an old Western saloon with Cary Grant in the background and KG up front yelling out his...
Halfway through the fourth quarter of the Utah Jazz and Boston Celtics game, Jeff Green of the Celtics found some superhuman leaping abilities and applied them accordingly. Jeff drove down the lane and dunked over two defenders, but Al Jefferson was the one who ended up on a very life-sized poster. The dunk is an easy early season candidate for dunk of the year.
