The first game of their preseason European trip, the first since 2007 — a year to remember for Celtics supporters — will be against Fenerbahce Ulker of the Turkish [...]
These Turkish teams are not to be taken lightly. Despite a warning from Dionte Christmas, an alumnus of the Turkish Basketball League, that Fenerbahce Ulker would be no pushover, the Celtics never seemed able to get in rhythm on Friday. Boston's first exhibition foe of the 2012-13 season controlled the pace of the game, got to the free throw line more effectively and protected...
Rajon Rondo makes some sweet moves with the basketball, but even a behind-the-back pass may not sweeter than the Rondo cookies reportedly found in the media room at Ulker Sports Arena in Istanbul. Rondo cookies apparently are Turkish treats that are not found in the U.S. The Celtics are in Turkey as part of the NBA's international preseason tour, and the elusive (at least in...

We’ve made several jokes about how the Celtics continue to use phrases like “tear their heads off” or “kill if we have to” in reference to their opponents. We’ve also observed that, as motivation, Doc keeps showing the team clips of last year’s Eastern Conference Finals as a way to get extra fire burning in the stomachs of both the vets and the newcomers.I always...
