Kyrie Eleison: Latin for "Lord Have Mercy."I’m going to keep this brief because I’m too angry to think rationally about this (I actually took a break from the game and put a moratorium on my in-game tweeting when I returned because I was too likely to say something stupid).Kyrie Irving was amazing. There’s no way around this. He single-handedly dominated Rondo (and others) offensively, and it didn’t look vengeful or angry or determined. He just looked like a superior point guard. He’s not elite defensively, but he’s adequate, and “adequate” is good enough for him to be a superstar.Paul Pierce hit his first two shots and finished 3-15 because of course that’s what happened.Jared Sullinger remains the lone bright spot in a sea of mediocrity. I honestly believe that the people who believe he will be a role player for his entire career are underestimating him.Don’t blame the 3-point shooting tonight. As a team, the C’s shot 7-17, which is good for 41.2% — a very efficient number

The Celtics are on a four game losing streak. They’re 20-21 at the halfway point for the season. What are they missing? A backup center? A backup point guard? A top flight NBA scorer? According to the captain Paul Pierce it’s simply, mental toughness. Following last night’s demoralizing game in which Kyrie Irving had his way with the Green, Pierce talked about the team’s...
Sullinger praised KG for mentorship; also credited his ass. “My mama blessed me with a beautiful backside.”

The kid’s got some padding back there, that’s for sure.
Maybe that’s the Celtics problem… a bunch of guys with skinny asses.
This isn’t the first time Sullinger’s backside has come up…
“He has the perfect body...
Has there ever been a player whose name made him better suited to be a Boston Celtic? Jared Sullinger, or Sully as I'm sure Celtic fans call him, is a perfect fit in Beantown. And with a roster of aging big men, Sully is also a a nice addition to the roster (he was a steal after slipping to the No. 21 pick in the draft).
His minutes have increased as the season has worn on...
In the Big Three era the Celtics have offensively been a penetrate and pass offense. They rely heavily on points off fouls and a high field goal percentage yielded from finding high percentage shots by exploiting defensive rotations. This style of play also led to one of the consistently best team defensives in the NBA because Boston would omit rebounding to solidify their transition...
The Celtics On Demand series “Beyond the Green” is back. This time, it’s a short documentary called “Weight On My Shoulders”, featuring Jared Sullinger:
The Comcast On Demand Celtics Series “Beyond The Green” takes an exclusive look into Jared Sullinger’s personal struggle with weight, and how overcoming it has helped him achieve great success in “Weight on My Shoulders...
The Boston Celtics are clearly a team in transition. Once a team dominated by the Big Three (Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett), the Celtics are now a mix of veterans and youngsters with point guard Rajon Rondo being the bridge. The result so far hasn't been pretty. The Celtics currently stand at 20-21 with losses to the lowly Detroit Pistons and Cleveland Cavaliers the last...
As he comes back to Ohio for the first time since leaving Thad Matta and his teammates at The Ohio State University, Jared Sullinger speaks of the few wake-up calls he has had during his young career as a power forward in the NBA.
It was not much into his Sullinger’s season when teammate and future Hall-of-Famer Kevin Garnett was digging his broad and boney left shoulder in the...
It’s the last chance for the Boston Celtics to establish themselves of the Eastern Conference
Three weeks ago when the Boston Celtics defeated the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden, it was seen as a turning point of the Boston Celtics season. It was the middle of six-game winning streak that reestablished the Celtics defensive swagger, none more evident than the game against...
The Celtics are all to familiar with
the emotions of "a day at the park"
Being a Celtics fan for a season is almost like going to Six Flags, or any other amusement park, for the day. The anticipation to get there is unbearable and all you can do is sit and think about the possible outcomes of a day at the park. You finally get there and reality hits you, theres a lot of...
Carmelo Anthony says he just wants a victory in Boston and has moved on from the trash-talking incident with Celtics forward Kevin Garnett that eventually got him suspended one game.
“I don’t care what message I sent to him,’’
I'm not sure what to think about this team any more. They showed during the win streak that they can play the right way. But then they don't. Not even after Doc called them out. They have to get it together, starting with the defense. This losing stuff is getting old.
I want a W because I despise everything Buh-stun.
Will be interesting to see how Waiters plays...
After Rajon Rondo called out his teammates for not taking losses as hard as they probably should, there’s more coming out about the state of the C’s locker room.
The Celtics are a team — and that’s not counting Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett — that believes because they are Celtics, because Rivers is the coach, and because the organization has been successful...

Kevin Garnett: 16 Points, 7 Rebounds
Garnett had a decent game tonight, from the boxscore stats, but his defense was pretty bad. Detroit's frontcourt put a beating on him. But it is not entirely his fault. He has no legitimate froncourt partner to help him out when the going...
