According to CSNNE's Sherrod Blakely, Leandro Barbosa has arrived in Boston. He has selected #12 to wear on his jersey, and there is a chance he might play Sunday against Philadelphia (but not tonight against the Knicks): #Celticstalk: Barbosa is inBoston. #Celtics Doc Rivers said there is a chance he might play Sunday vs. #Sixers. — A. Sherrod Blakely (@SherrodbCSN) October 20, 2012 #Celticstalk: FWIW, Barbosa will wear No. 12 for the #Celtics this season. — A. Sherrod Blakely (@SherrodbCSN) October 20, 2012 Also, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Darko Milicic will not be playing tonight. It looks like Doc is just resting KG and PP, and hopefully Pierce's ankle injury from the Nets game isn't a concern: #Celticstalk: No Pierce, KG, Bass or Darko tonight for the #Celtics. — A. Sherrod Blakely (@SherrodbCSN) October 20, 2012 #Celticstalk: #Celtics Doc Rivers said Pierce and KG were told before #Nets game on Thur. that they would not play tonight. — A. Sherrod B...

Paul Pierce the Boston Celtics Legend

When stumbling upon this photo today, it immediately invoked feeling for me that had been reserved for one man;  a basketball legend that wore green, two decades earlier. A similar photo of Larry Bird was published in late 1989 to dawn the cover of Sports Illustrated. This photo was to commemorate the Legend’s return to basketball from season-ending injury. [...]

Celtics Injury News: Paul Pierce, Brandon Bass

The Boston Celtics have a new look to them.  Sure, there are some familiar faces, but this is not the team with the original big three - the big three that started the trend of players joining up in hopes of winning a championship.  This is a team minus Ray Allen, a key part of the championship the Celtics did win in 2008.  Here's an update on some key players on the current...

Pierce serves Nets reality check

That beautiful new Brooklyn arena and those slick black uniforms are getting the Nets plenty of attention. The Boston Celtics sure noticed, and they delivered a reminder Thursday night that the road to the Atlantic Division title doesn't run through Atlantic Avenue just yet. Paul Pierce scored 18 points despite briefly leaving with an ankle injury, and the Celtics spoiled the...

Several Boston Celtics regulars to sit tonight, including Kevin Garnett, Brandon Bass and Paul Pierce

Celtics 115, Nets 85

Paul Pierce scored 18 points despite briefly leaving with an ankle injury, and the Boston Celtics spoiled the Brooklyn Nets' return to national TV with a 115-85 exhibition victory Thursday night. Courtney Lee also had 18 for the Celtics in a rematch of the Nets' 97-96 victory in Boston two nights earlier. The Nets rallied to pull that one out even while resting their starters...

It's a Fast Break!

What I have enjoyed the most this preseason is watching the Celtics fast breaks. For the first time, Rondo has multiple options on the break instead of getting the ball up court quickly and then having to dribble around while he waits for the rest of the team to get in place. The play above has Paul Pierce running ahead and getting the hoop. More than likely, he won't be...

Comments From the Other Side - Nets 10/18

Nets fans sound a bit different than they did after their team blew out the Celtics.  Lots of hate for Deron Williams.  When fans are longing to have Gerald Green back, you know there are problems.  Of course there are the wheelchair comments after Pierce came up limping after he was shoved into the photographers by Joe Johnson.  Funny, he didn't seem to have that mean streak...

Celtics Get Payback Win over Knicks 109-98

We got a look at the future tonight and it was fun. Doc sat KG, Pierce to rest them since they have another game tomorrow night and the young guys got a lot of run in this game. Doc started Rondo, Lee, Green, Sully and Collins with Melo, Terry, Kurz, Downs, and Joseph playing off the bench. The Knicks also sat their stars with Melo, Amare and Chandler all sitting this one out...

Jeff Green impressed everyone during preseason

I’ve been holding off on a “Jeff Green is soooooooo much better than ever” article, largely because I didn’t want to overreact to a small preseason sample size when his four years in the NBA paint a different story.But it certainly does seem like Green feels more comfortable than ever, and his production was probably the single most positive takeaway from preseason. He averaged...

Recap: Celtics remind Nets that they’re still the Nets

The Brooklyn Nets wanted this game. We knew that when Avery Johnson rested his starters on Tuesday night. The new look Nets were on national television in their new arena against the Celtics. How did Brooklyn respond? They got steamrolled. The Celtics were aggressive on both ends of the floor and dominated this game from start to finish. The final was 115-85. Doc Rivers trotted out...

Doc still "Disappointed" by Ray Allen's departure

From today's Boston Herald: “I’ll always be disappointed with that because of the way it went down. But it is what it is, so I’m over it, but, you know, you’re always disappointed about stuff." Coach Rivers goes on to say: "But as far as our team, I moved on the next day. We were trying to build our team. We already had Jason Terry; we knew that. So my next...
