“These are guys that I can’t imagine giving those numbers out to anybody else,” Grousbeck said on WEEI. Grousbeck called Pierce the “linchpin” of the Celtics’ success during his tenure, which predates...
The Boston Celtics have retired more jersey numbers than any other professional sports team in the USA with a count of 21. And according to co-owner Wyc Grousbeck, it looks like both #34 and #5 will be added to the rafters when Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett retire in the near future.

“We’re going to retire...
Former Louisville star Terrence Williams is in day six of his 10-day contract with the Boston Celtics. Last Thursday, the final day that NBA teams are allowed to make trades, Boston sent center Jason Collins and the expiring contract of shooting guard Leandro Barbosa to the Washington Wizards in exchange for shooting guard Jordan Crawford. Considering Williams and Crawford are both...

Wyc Grousbeck, managing partner and co-owner of the Celtics, confirmed Tuesday that Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, future Hall of Famers who helped bring a 17th NBA...
This could have been a good win for the Celtics had a couple shots fallen their way late in the fourth quarter but the ball just didn't bounce their way tonight. Wesley Matthews was big all night and hit a barrage of shots from long range to keep the Celtics at bay all game. Tommy Heinsohn noted at halftime that this was a game he thought the Celtics would win claiming all the...

Without him Friday, the Celtics pounded the Suns, 113-88, and Garnett said he joked to Rivers that if they were going to play like that, he’d sit out against Portland, too.

Kevin Garnett's return did not get the Celtics a win
The Celtics came out of the gates strong, just like in Phoenix, before the Trailblazers mounted a run of their own. They lost the lead in the 1st quarter due to poor decision-making, some bad luck, and bad defense. But in the 2nd quarter, they had no one to blame but themselves. The offense collapsed...
Blazers 92, Celtics 86
After blowing away the competition in Phoenix on Friday night, the Celtics (29-27) came crashing back to earth with a tough loss against the Blazers (26-30). Kevin Garnett returned after taking a game off to rest, and Paul Pierce played extremely well (23 points, seven rebounds, and eight assists), but the new-look C’s were unable to close it out against...

After losing 3 of 4 games out west after the All-Star break, Marc Stein has dropped the Celtics down to #13 is his ESPN weekly NBA power rankings, three spots below their #10 position last week.
Despite clearly being back on the Laker bandwagon (LA is #11 with a 28-29 record), I am actually very impressed with Stein's faith in the C's. He still has...

8:03: Tonight, the Celtics will conclude their time in the Pacific Timezone when they visit the Portland Trail Blazers. The Blazers, who are just 25-30, are a great 17-9 at home while they are just 8-21 on the road. Tonight will be a really tough one. In my opinion, it will be the hardest game to win of this whole road trip. They will have to start good and end good if they want to end up on top.
According to Suns forward Markieff Morris, Boston could have landed his twin Marcus instead of the two brothers reuniting in Phoenix at the trade deadline.
Morris was talking to KTAR in Phoenix with Bickley and MJ:
When did you first learn that your team was pursuing your brother?:
“I was on the bus riding to … the Golden State game and Jared Dudley was like, ‘They’re...
