Found December 17, 2011 on Celtics Town:
A. Sherrod Blakely, CSNNE:“Somebody will win it,” Rivers said of the backup job behind Allen. “And we’re going to let them. We’re honest with guys. There’s a spot there, and all of you aren’t going to play it. So it’s been a competitive camp because of that.”Of all the new faces, Moore has arguably been the biggest surprise thus far.A late second-round pick in last June’s NBA draft by the Celtics, Moore has been among the more consistent performers for the C’s thus far in training camp.That confidence and poise is in part because he spent four years in college.“I was basically taking what they were giving us,” Moore said. “Just having confidence can lead you a long way. And I had confidence to knock down shots when I was open.”Steve Bulpett, Boston Herald:“I know everybody is going to be working hard for that position,” [Avery] Bradley said of the backup job. “I’m going to be coming in and work hard and do everything Doc (Rivers) tells me to do.

Green Target: Travis Outlaw

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jeff Green and his family as it has been reported the early detection of his condition may have very well saved his life. The loss of Green for the season is a blow the Celtics could not have prepared for especially in this fashion.  While they may not have been prepared, there is no choice but to adjust and attempt to amend the situation.
