Credit NESNAccording to the Boston Herald's Mark Murphy, MarShon Brooks will be rejoining the Celtics on Friday:Ainge also said that MarShon Brooks, tearing up the D-League, will rejoin C's Friday vs. Golden State.— Mark Murphy (@Murf56) January 8, 2014In his three games with the Maine Red Claws, Brooks has posted some serious numbers:GAME 1: 31 MIN, 27 PTS, 9-18 FG, 4 REB, 3 AST, 0 STL, 0 BLKGAME 2: 39 MIN, 27 PTS, 10-21 FG, 11 REB, 6 AST, 1 STL, 2 BLKGAME 3: 44 MIN, 36 PTS, 14-28 FG, 6 REB, 5 AST, 5 STL, 3 BLKPerhaps Brooks is making a case to battle Jerryd Bayless for some of Courtney Lee's vacant minutes. He has played only 61 minutes in 9 games this season. Undoubtedly, it would be nice to see Brooks utilize his outrageous 6'11.5" wingspan and elevate his production in green.That being said, we can't forget Fab Melo's D-League performances. In the D League the guy could post MONSTER lines, but his NBA career has been underwhelming.So what do you thi...

Sullinger ejected for two flagrant fouls in less than a minute

The Celtics are in the middle of a losing streak and frustration is mounting. In Tuesday night’s game in Denver, Celtics forward Jared Sullinger was ejected during the third quarter after picking up two Flagrant 1 fouls in the span of one minute. Not good. The first call, with 9:06 to go in the third quarter, was on J.J. Hickson. The second call, with 8:43 left to go, was...

I just landed the Celtics the 1st pick in the draft

If the season were to end today (and sometimes I wish it would), the Celtics (13-23, 8th worst in league) would have a 2.8% chance of winning the draft lottery. ESPN has launched a 2014 Lottery Mock Draft and Insider Chad Ford surveyed scouts or executives from teams projected to be in the lottery to determine order and team needs. The take on the Celtics: Likely selection with...

Is Brandon Bass the next guy that could be traded?

Brandon Bass has played very well for the Celtics this year (and in years past). He's a good, solid basketball player that makes his team better. He doesn't cause problems on the court and he's been very durable. In short, he's the anti-Bynum. He's also the kind of guy that just might be worth something to another team. He's also in his prime as a player...

Swimming lessons with Brandon Bass

Brandon Bass recently learned how to swim with his six year old son. It's nice to see a guy with great character in the locker room prioritize being a great dad as well.See Related:A Bass out of water

Your Morning Dump… Where Ryan Gomes is coming back to Boston (for a second)

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. The deal is expected to be finalized Tuesday morning. It became a bit more complicated, with Oklahoma City becoming involved in the swap. The up-to-date details, according to a league source: Lee will head to Memphis...

Blake Griffin Posterizes Kris Humphries With Vicious Dunk in Clippers’ Win Over Celtics (Video)

One of the few Celtics who can be encouraged with his play lately is Kris Humphries. He might not be so encouraged after this. The Celtics lost their third straight game to begin their five-game road trip and their sixth straight overall with a 111-105 defeat to the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday. It was a better all-around effort for the Celtics than the previous game, when they...

Kris Humphries Gets Mozgov’d By Blake Griffin

Wait, is it Mozgov’d? Or, is it Perkins’d? We’re not sure. Maybe they’re interchangeable? Either way, I’m sure basketball purist nitwits on the Interwebs will make some sort of proclamation that this not really a dunk — and, thus, not a posterization — because Blake Griffin’s hand didn’t make contact with the rim. Those people are stupid and should be ignored. It’s...

Report: Kris Humphries won't play Tuesday against Denver Nuggets

Kris Humphries will not be in the lineup for the Boston Celtics Tuesday against the Denver Nuggets.  Humphries sat out of practice on Monday, and it seems he will not be a go in Denver on Tuesday, according to Sean Grande of 98.5 The Sports Hub.  The veteran power forward has played in 27 games this season. Futuremore, newly acquired Jerryd Bayless will come of the bench for the Celtics. 

The Boston Celtics trade Courtney Lee to Memphis for Jerryd Bayless dealt in three-team trade.

Game #35 Recap: Denver Nuggets Crush Boston Celtics, 129-98

Denver Nuggets 129, Boston Celtics 98   The Celtics entered tonight's contest against the Nuggets as the losers of four straight games. Boston has desperately been looking to get back on track, though it became apparent very early in the game that the Nuggets would make it impossible for the Celtics to regain their footing tonight in Denver.   Tonight was the Nuggets' game...

The final say on the OKC – Memphis – Boston threeway

We finally have some clarity on the draft picks involved in the three way deal: Under terms of the deal announced Tuesday, the Grizzlies get Lee and a 2016 second-round draft pick from Boston. The Celtics get Bayless and also receive forward Ryan Gomes from Oklahoma City. The Thunder receive a conditional 2017 second-round draft pick from Memphis. Boston had pursued Bayless in...

Keith Bogans Gets His Chance And Other Impressions From Celtics’ Loss to Nuggets

Saying the Celtics got whupped by the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday wouldn’t really be accurate, because that would have required the Celtics to actually show up. While the Celtics might have been at the Pepsi Center in body, they weren’t there in spirit as the Nuggets dressed down the sputtering Celts 129-98. Boston (13-22) suffered its worst loss of the season, both by margin of...

Brad Stevens Sees Effort He Can Live With And Other Impressions From Celtics’ Loss to Clippers

The Celtics didn’t play well, but they did play hard. For Brad Stevens, that was enough, for at least one night. With a little more pep in their step, the Celtics did the same thing Wednesday against the Los Angeles Clippers that they had in the previous five games against a variety of opponents: They lost. They fell to a better team with a better collection of NBA talent on its...

Simmons: Celtics targeting Gordon Hayward

From today's BS Report - I believe Boston will make a big play for Gordon Hayward, either a Feb. trade or a restricted FA offer in July.— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) January 7, 2014 While this is only an opinion stated by ESPN's Bill Simmons, Hayward to the Celtics has been a popular topic of discussion all season. As a restricted free agent, Hayward could draw a lot of...

Watch: Blake Griffin Dunks All Over Kris Humphries

Of all the NBA players you don’t want to see coming down the lane at you, Blake Griffin is probably one or two on that list. Why? Because he can do ridiculous stuff like this. Watch Griffin posterize Kris Humphries during last night’s Clippers/Celtics game. Humphries just got Mozgov’d. The post Watch: Blake Griffin Dunks All Over Kris Humphries appeared first on Standing O...
