Old man Paul Pierce still getting it done in historic fashion

#34's last 14 seasons put him on a very short list. In the win over Atlanta on Friday night, Paul Pierce posted his 3rd triple double (20-10-10) since Rajon Rondo's season ending injury.  He's the only player in the NBA with 3 in that time span (LeBron has 2).  Last night in New York Pierce led the undermanned C's with 5 assists, put up 24 points, and also grabbed...

Pierce could sit against the Timberwolves

The already battered Celtics could be without their captain against Minnesota Monday night. According to ESPN's Chris Forsberg, Paul Pierce turned his ankle in the first quarter which forced him to sit out the final 13 minutes of the Celtics' 108-89 loss to the Knicks Sunday. Pierce was seen on the bench with an ice pack taped to his right ankle. From Forsberg's piece...

Paul Pierce plays HORSE with Celtics fans (Video)

The Boston Celtics teamed up with the Massachusetts State Lottery to give six lucky Celtics fans the chance to play HORSE with Paul Pierce at the team practice facility. Pierce won the competition, despite only getting to the letter "O", but a good time was had by all. Video via BostonCeltics. H/T BDL.

Exhausted Pierce, Celtics Drop Second Straight To Knicks

Knicks 108, Celtics 89 For the second time this week, the Celtics (38-35) were unable to compete with a team that now owns the longest streak in the NBA. The Knicks (46-26) won their eighth straight on Sunday night as they steamrolled through a porous C’s defense. Boston played well enough on the offensive end, but Without Kevin Garnett in the lineup, they were simply unable to...

Underrated Stat of the Night - Knicks 3/31

Tonight's game in New York was a lost cause. The Celtics were never even in it. All the Knicks had to do to win was play decent. That's what they did. The Celtics have got to learn how to win on the road. Tonight's USOTN goes to the rebounding total of Paul Pierce. Pierce's 15 was a season-high. He's not known for his skills on the boards, so it's nice to...

Shavlik speaks, and wins our hearts all over again

Shavlik Randolph took a break from healing the blind and turning water into wine to join the NBA on NBC show with Hickman & Gilroy this morning. The resulting 12 minutes was the type of “aw shucks, I’m just doing my job” kind of humbleness that just makes you want to introduce him to your daughter. The best example is when he was asked about his personal journey.  We all...

Your Morning Dump… Where the C’s hope to have a green Easter Egg in Shavlik Randolph

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. But the idea that ShavlikRandolph would have such an impact seemed far-fetched last month when the 6-foot-10-inch forward joined the team after playing in China. After all, Randolph only became a Celtic to help...

Pierce's triple double leads Celtics

Paul Pierce had 20 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds, and Jeff Green scored 27 points to carry the Boston Celtics to a 118-107 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Friday night. Jason Terry was 5 of 7 on 3-pointers and finished with 24 points for Boston, which won its second straight following a five-game losing streak. Josh Smith led the Hawks with 18 points but shot just 7 of 23...

Your Morning Dump… Where the C’s still like a Knicks playoff matchup

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. “We like how we match up with the Knicks,” captainPaul Pierce said. “We like how we match up with Miami. We like how we match up with pretty much anybody in the East.” If the playoffs started today, the...

Hawks' lead on sixth in East trimmed by Celtics

BOSTON -- Paul Pierce had 20 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds, and Jeff Green scored 27 points to carry the Boston Celtics to a 118-107 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Friday night. Jason Terry was 5 of 7 on 3-pointers and finished with 24 points for Boston, which won its second straight following a five-game losing streak. Josh Smith led the Hawks with 18 points but shot just...

Celtics 118, Hawks 107

Recap: Shavlik says “Get on my back boys”

If I told you during the first part of the season that there would be a game which the Celtics were lead to victory by Jeff Green and Shavlik Randolph, you may have just punched me in the teeth. I would have lost all credibility as a writer, and I’d have been blacklisted by the writing community to authoring only preschool level picture books. But that is exactly what happened...

Comments from the Other Side - Hawks 3/29

Great game by the Celtics.  With both teams missing starting centers, they couldn't use Horford being out as an excuse.   As much as they complained about the officiating, the fact is that they got more free throws than the Celtics.  The refs let a lot of stuff go both ways. It's nice to know that they now know who Shavlik Randolph is.     Enjoy today's comments...

Welptics: New York Knicks crush Boston Celtics 108-89

Melo and the Knicks punished Boston from 3-point range.Few things are as aggravating as hearing an opposing crowd chant “Bos-ton sucks,” but one thing that’s worse is knowing that they aren’t wrong. The Celtics, for lack of a better descriptor, sucked tonight. Aside from Jeff Green (and Chris Wilcox on two field goal attempts), no one shot above 50% from the field. The Celtics...

Jason Terry, Shavlik Randolph Become Latest Celtics to Break Out at Opportune Time

BOSTON — Courtney Lee, limited to six minutes of playing time in his first game back from a sprained ankle, hopped up exuberantly. Chris Wilcox, mostly confined to the bench after starting the game at center, waved his towel enthusiastically. Rajon Rondo, back on the bench for the first time in two months, clapped in his sportcoat. All along the bench, the Celtics were having a...
