It wouldn't be Celtics/Knicks if Pierce didn't get a chance to gloat in MSG. Right?We’ve reached the end of the regular season, so the writers of Celtics Town would like to take a minute to discuss the impending postseason in roundtable format with a few pertinent questions.Click on the names to follow the writers on Twitter (and follow our fearless leader Jay @CelticsTown as well), and feel free to leave your answers to these questions in the comments below!1. What do you find most encouraging entering the postseason?Jordan: Jeff Green has grown exponentially over the course of the season. Green has gone from being an untradable player with an abysmal contract to one of the more reliable Celtics. Green hasn’t lived up to his contract just yet (which should only be a matter of time if he keeps trending in the right direction), but he’s come a long way since his early struggles. Also Bass seems to finally put it together in the last month or so, though we’ll see if he’s up to...

Comments from the Other Side - Knicks 4/20

The Knicks fans are right up there with the Heat and Lakers fans for being bandwagon fans and also classless.  I'm glad that Melo at least called them out for booing Pierce when he was giving a tribute to the bombing victims.   Seeing them complain so much about the officiating when they were calling the game fairly evenly,  missing calls both ways but not as bad as they...

Is Jeff Green the key to the Celtics playoff success?

Coming into the season, one of the big question marks was what kind of player Jeff Green was going to be. Green was working his way back from heart surgery and had just signed a much criticized four-year $36 million contract. He came out of the gate slow, scoring just 8.7 ppg and 2.5 rpg in 15 games in November. But Green improved as the year went along and in the final month...

Throwback: KG in a Three Point – Shooting Contest???

WRONG…the 6’11 center out of high school, Kevin Garnett, was selected to particpate in the three point contest and boy did he struggle! Although...

Ready for the playoffs: Celtics lose to Raptors 114-90

Strange game as the Celtics rounded out their season losing their 81st game finishing just over .500 with a record of 41-40.  Not much to really report from this game as the Celtics playoff positioning is secured in the seven seed.  Terry and Garnett both got the night off and Pierce played just 14 minutes all coming in the first half.  This game was played with a palpable ...

Celtics Play Well, Fall Apart Late In Game 1

  Knicks 85, Celtics 78 Follow @TheNosebleeds The Celtics did everything they had to do to be in a position to steal Game 1. They contained the league’s leading scorer, got Jeff Green going on offense, and kept it close before collapsing in the final minutes. So the question is, should they be encouraged by their performance over the first 42 minutes? Or discouraged about their...
