#Celticstalk: No Pierce, KG, Bass or Darko tonight for the #Celtics.
— A. Sherrod Blakely (@SherrodbCSN) October 20, 2012
Ahead of the game thread, I'll just post this little tidbit from Sherrod Blakely. Pierce, who tweaked his knee when pushed into the photographers by Joe Johnson last game will sit out tonight. Brandon Bass, who also tweaked his knee, the same one that he had problems with last season, will also sit out. Darko will get one more night off to rest his injured wrist. And, KG will sit to rest and avoid injury in a meaningless preseason game. So, we should see lots of sloppy play and also young guys getting some good experience.

76ers 88 – Celtics 79 The Boston Celtics drop their last preseason game against the Philadelphia 76ers in Boston. This preseason, Jeff Green has gone above and beyond the call of duty and proved just why he deserves his contract after sitting out the entirety of last season. Green’s trend did not stop tonight in [...]
Welcome to the first edition of the Celtics Green Weekly Recap. In
this first installment, we will examine the highs and lows of the previous week
and summarize the overall state of Celtics Nation. We will also take a quick
look at news around our favorite league, and maybe throw in a bit of fun stuff
Let’s get started:
Preseason blues: The start...
Celtics fans finally got to see some great hoops last night as the C’s outlasted the Nets 115-85 in Brooklyn. One of the hot topics on Twitter was Jeff Green’s choice of kicks. He wore the Volt/Gorge Green Nike Hyperfuse 2012 seen in Jose3030′s pic above. If so inclined, you can cop a pair now on Eastbay. Enjoy some pics & GIFs from the game courtesy of Hoop China &...
It's interesting how each fan base is different as far as which
Celtics they dislike the most. Chicago, it's Rondo. The Nets, it's
Courtney Lee. Knicks fans seem to hate Jason Terry. But they all hate
the Celtics, so there's that. I think my favorite comment this time was
the guy whose phone auto-corrected Amare to Amateur, and they agreed
that it was...
A wrap-up of all the week’s important news Celtics fans will be talking about around the water cooler Monday morning. Celtics go 2-2 this week, rematch against Philly tonight – Every week I will begin this column with a quick summary of the week’s games, with hyperlinks to box scores for further reference. As the [...]
Now, every year since 2004 Celtics Green has done a fantasy league via Yahoo and every year I come in sub top 3, BOOO!Well, twice I got 3rd. Oh well, in any case, according to Yahoo Boston ranks 5th in Yahoo Fantasy Basketball (much like my team every year). So, congrats to all you Fantasy superstars out there! Below is the results (note Miami didnt crack the top 10!)...
Jeff Green and Jason Terry Lead the Celtics’ rally from a 20-point deficit to a 109 – 98 Preseason Win Over the New York Knicks. If Jeff Green can keep up his efficient scoring pace, he might not have to ask James Worthy for permission to use his nickname. Too soon? Probably, but as the [...]
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.
And yet, through six preseason games, Sullinger has stood out both for his on-court play — 11 points, 7 rebounds, 56 percent shooting in 25 minutes — and for his demeanor. His notoriously hard to impress veteran...
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...
The Celtics did not play a single game from June 9th when they came up a quarter short against the Heat in Game 7, until they traveled to Europe last week, but make no mistake, Danny Ainge won the off-season.
Let’s flashback to late February for a moment, the C’s were floundering a few games below .500 and the trade deadline was quickly approaching. The Green looked old, slow...
6:58 p.m.: Leandro Barbosa's anticipated debut in a Celtics uniform has been delayed by the pesky state department. Apparently there are some visa issues for the Brazilian national to clear before he can don the green and white in an actual game.
Barbosa warmed up prior to the game and spoke to reporters while wearing practice gear, but he joined Darko Milicic and Chris Wilcox...
In the final game of the preseason, the Celtics lose to the Philadelphia 76ers 88-79 (box score), as the Celtics take the next nine days to prepare for opening night against the Miami Heat. Here are some notes from the game:Celtics brought out an interesting starting lineup in Rondo, Pierce, Green, Bass and Garnett. Bass and Pierce both play despite their small physical ailments...
The Boston Celtics (2-4) “host” the New York Knicks (2-1) at 7:30 pm tonight at the Times Union Center in Albany, NY. The game will be broadcast on CSNNE and WEEI. Despite being played in the state of New York, on the schedule it’s listed as a home game for the Celtics. Exactly one [...]
This story isn’t meant to be primarily about Ray Allen, though he will stand as the prominent example in an inner debate I’m having with regards to a media phenomenon.My theory: Our views of athletes are distorted by the amount of time (and amount of friendliness with which) they speak to the media. Because Allen spent 15 minutes before every game holding court with reporters...
Sixers fans seem to have a lot of hate for Tommy Heinsohn. I
wonder if they realize that Tommy has 10 championship rings and
therefore is entitled to say whatever he wants about basketball. There
was also some KG hate in this game. My favorite comment was the one
stating that Celtics games should be R Rated because of what the
on-court microphones pick up. He may have...
