Celtics Center Fab Melo had another strong game to lead the Red Claws over the Idaho Stampede 108-94. Melo followed a historic triple double in his last game with 32 points (12-21, 9 rebounds, and 9 blocks.   Melo is definitely playing well and is developing quite well with the Red Claws.   Training camp invitee Micah Downs started in place of Kris Joseph, who is back with the Celtics, finished with 11 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists and 5 steals. Xavier Silas started at the point, replacing Shelvin Mack who had been called up to the Washington Wizards. Silas finished with 10 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 steals for the Red Claws while Mack started for the Wizards tonight scoring 6 points to go with 6 rebounds and 7 assists. The Red Claws have back to back games against the Sioux Falls Skyforce on Friday and Saturday with both games starting at 8:00 PM ET. You can watch the games on the Red Claws website here.

Video: Fab Melo's 32 point, 9 rebound, and 9 block game

Above are the video highlights from Fab Melo's 32 point, 9 rebound, and 9 block game against the Idaho Stampede. Hopefully when Melo gets recalled from the D-League, he can use all the experience he got as a confidence builder and can perform well for the Celtics. We could really use his size.

Jared Sullinger a starter soon? It would make sense

Over at MassLive.com, where Celtics Town authoritarian dictator (just kidding) Jay King gets paid to write about sports, Jay posted an interesting article on how Boston’s full-team plus/minus improves immensely when Jared Sullinger plays with the starters in place of Brandon Bass and/or Jason Collins.From Masslive.com:“Consider this: During the 197 minutes when Sullinger has...

Kevin Garnett: “He just jacked my shorts”

In the Celtics early start on Christmas Day, CSN viewers were surrounded with holiday spirit, including anecdotal stories of KG buying Scal a Louis Vuitton suitcase, and Keyon Dooling dishing out holiday cheer like it he was playing point guard again.  Then things became reminiscent of the last meeting between Brooklyn and Boston when Gerald Wallace and Kevin Garnett got a little...

Can Celtics surge like last season?

After spending four years crafting a reputation as one of the NBA's best teams in November and December, the Boston Celtics have found the last two seasons to be rather unkind when it comes to getting out of the blocks quickly, with early hardship coming to define them in their old age. It started last year when, without a training camp to rely on, coach Doc Rivers' past...

California Here We Come: The Boston Celtics Head Out on a West Coast Swing

A Look at the Boston Celtics Match-ups in California   The Boston Celtics say goodbye to 2012 from sunny California after kicking off a four game road trip by administering a Christmas Day beating to the Brooklyn Nets.  The West Coast swing, in particular the first two  games against the Los Angeles Clippers and the [...]

Clippers 106, Celtics 77 highlights

Here are the highlights from the Clippers beat down of the Celtics late Thursday night. Celtics box score below.

Celtics 93, Nets 76: A nice stocking stuffer

For Christmas, at least, the Celtics played well. Jared Sullinger solidified himself as my hero, Rajon Rondo continued to show more aggression as a scorer, Gerald Wallace may or may not have wanted to brawl, Deron Williams (and Joe Johnson) used to be a lot better, and I don’t know if I said this before, but Sullinger’s my hero.I would write more, but I’m going to see Les Miserables...

Paul Pierce’s Game Ball Gesture to Jason Collins Doubly Appreciated, As Awarding Game Balls Is Rarity in NBA

BOSTON — Paul Pierce gave Jason Collins his game ball, everybody clapped and that was pretty much that. A few days later, Pierce’s token of recognition for the veteran center’s hard work was all but forgotten for many members of the Celtics, who were much more impressed with the 40-point performance that earned Pierce the game ball in the first place. But for Collins, the gesture...

Doc Rivers Compliments Jared Sullinger, Calls Him ‘Big Fat Guy Playing Basketball’

Hopefully the Celtics aren’t sensitive about their weight. Because Doc Rivers certainly doesn’t care. The Celtics’ coach complimented rookie forward Jared Sullinger, and then called him fat. This backhanded compliment came after Sullinger had a career-day on Christmas, going six-for-seven shooting with 16 points and seven rebounds. “Jared was wonderful. He’s such a smart...

Laker Fans are Rooting for the Celtics Against the Clippers

As you guys know, I live in San Francisco but am originally from Long Beach. I am here right now visiting my family and old friends. What I heard recently was pretty shocking. Most of the Laker fans here have told me they will be rooting for the Celtics tonight so the Clippers streak will end. I can not believe it. I would root for anyone to beat the Lakers and that would even mean...

Clippers Crush Celtics 106-77

On Thursday night the Celtics started out their three game road trip against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Celtics come in off a blowout win on Christmas day against the Nets in which the team was firing on all cylinders. The Clippers own the league's best record at 22-6 and had a 14 game winning streak coming into the night. The Celtics looked to start off their trip ending...

Comments from the Other Side - Nets 12/25

Well, this game made my Christmas a bit merrier.  It would have been a lot better if the Lakers and Heat had lost but I'll take a Celtics win any day, especially over these very unlikeable Nets and their fans.  The fact that some of them were complaining about the officiating is laughable, given that they shot 29 free throws to 13 for the Celtics.  Nets fans seem to hate their...

Gerald Wallace & Kevin Garnett Receive Double Technicals After Short Tug

Kevin Garnett and Gerald Wallace both received a technical in the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s Christmas Day game after a minor scuffle. Wallace grabbed onto Garnett’s shorts following a shot attempt, something Garnett didn’t respond well to:
