Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry all had the day off from practice today. Leandro Barbosa was also not present due to illness.about 1 hour ago via TwitterrificReplyRetweetFavorite@celticsBoston CelticsThe Celtics don’t play until Wednesday’s tilt with Garnett’s alma mater, so applaud Doc for a good decision. No reason to make the elderly folks run unnecessarily, especially on the heels of a tough back to back. The Timberwolves just beat the Bucks by ten, so it’s a good idea to be as fresh as possible when they arrive.Oh, and here’s your obligatory “Hopefully Stern doesn’t fine the Celtics” joke. I hope you enjoyed it.

Your Morning Dump… Where Doc loves Jason Terry

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. “He’s a pro.

Enemy Chatter: Marquis Daniels and Mbah a Moute played tough defense on Pierce

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Milwaukee. Marquis Daniels Daniels played tough defense all night on Paul Pierce all game and gave the Bucks god versatility against the Pierce/Terry pick and roll late. He offers preciously little on the other end, but he knows his limitations...

On having little concern over the Celtics’ sluggish start

Paul Pierce and the Boston Celtics are off to a slow-start, but that should be of little concern for fans In the four seasons that the Boston Celtics Big Three 2.0 existed in Boston before the lockout and condensed season, they were one of the best teams in basketball before Christmas Day.

Slip sliding away: Boston falls 91-88

I’ll admit it. I really thought the Celtics were going to run away with this game.It was foolish, I know. I mean, why would I think that this team could hold a 17-0 lead? Stupid, stupid. I should have known that Milwaukee would come back, because, you know, the Celtics. The only question would be whether or not Boston could hold off Milwaukee’s comeback. They could not, as it...

Contributing in other ways: Courtney Lee

Courtney Lee's time in Boston has been brief, but also disappointing. We were promised elite 3-point shooting, but he has shot a career-worst 24%. He was supposed to be a good, athletic finisher but he has shot a career-worst 52.9% at the rim. Some over the summer were even predicting that Lee would keep the starting job over Avery Bradley, but instead he lost it to Jason Terry...

Al Jefferson Could Lead Celtics’ Wish List for Big Man to Fill Hole Down Low (Photos)

The Celtics entered this season intending to go small, and so far their plan has yielded mixed results. They remain just a little too old and slow to keep up with the fast-paced teams and a little too small to bang with the big bodies. Well before Darko Milicic left the team to be with his sick mother and Jason Collins took on an increased role, the Celtics’ need for another big...
