Portland Trail Blazers (6-2, 2-1 away) at Boston Celtics (4-5, 2-2 home) TD Garden at 7:30 p.m. on CSNNE – For Tickets Click Here Officials: Marc Davis, Derrick Collins, Haywoode Workman. Line: Portland -3 The C’s look to bounce back from a tough loss to the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night that ended their 4-game win streak. Coming in at 4-5 overall, Boston is currently the No. 8 seed in the east and has surprised many in the early stages. They need all hands on deck, however, if they’re going to beat the Blazers.

A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE has an interesting story on Kris Humphries and his role (or lack thereof) thus far this season:
Humphries wants to play somewhere, even if it means leaving Boston.
He’s not quite ready to demand a trade, but it’s clear that the lack of playing time and erratic minutes he has played is weighing on him.
The 6-foot-9 veteran did not play (coaches decision...
This video has gone bonkers in the past couple of weeks as well it deserves to. This Celtics fan got so amped when Bon Jovi comes on during a game intermission in what may be the most profound fan dance in the history of fan dancin’. From start to finish this guy rocks out like he’s livin’ on a prayer.
Via WEEI's Ben Rohrbach, here's what Brooks had to say following his sixth straight DNP-CD last night:
“I’m trying not to get frustrated, because I know my time’s going to come, and if I’m frustrated, then I’m playing against myself, so all I can do is just stay in shape and be ready. Right now, I’m not playing at all. I don’t have a role. I’m just cheering...
For some un-Godly reason, the NBA continues to force-feed us these horrible short-sleeved jerseys. And yes, apparently, that even means the Celtics wearing these stupid things next month.
Some of you might be sitting there thinking “oh, I might actually want that.” Ok, fine, here’s where you can get one of these abominations for a paltry $109.95.
When the Celtics start...
Recovering from any type of surgery is a long and arduous process. Jared Sullinger, who had season ending back surgery during his 2012-13 rookie season would have never thought that he’d be playing at the level he is less than a year after he went up on the shelf. “Honestly, I’m shocked the way I’m playing now,” the Celtics forward said after practice Thursday.Shocked...
Brad Stevens felt the Bobcats had their way all night. Especially Big Al with 22 points on the night.
Jeff Green played solid Wednesday night. He dominated the second quarter with 10 points in the quarter. He finished with 19 on the night.
Crawford was the Celtics second leading scorer on the night with 16 points.

It's no secret in Rip City that LaMarcus Aldridge wants to win, and he wants to win now. After a brief back and forth with Neil Olshey this past summer (although he may refuse to admit it), Aldridge has seemingly become comfortable sporting the black and red for another year. By way of some notable free agent acquisitions (Mo Williams, Dorrel Wright) and two trades that netted...
The Boston Celtics struggled out of the gate, but took a second quarter lead on the Portland Trailblazers. Then Nicolas Batum got hot to end the half and to start the third quarter. The Celtics also had no answer for LaMarcus Aldridge in this game, which really shouldn’t be a surprise considering the lack of size.

Tweet The Phoenix Suns should be ashamed of their defensive effort that let Portland Trail Blazers second-year PG Damian Lillard have one of the easiest game-winning shots Wednesday night that you’ll ever see. Lillard starts at the top of the key, then attacks the basket after a on-ball screen from LaMarcus Aldridge. From there, the Suns allowed Lillard...
The streaky shooting Damian Lillard: Photo provided courtesy of nba.si.comThe Boston Celtics face their first real big test of the season tonight at T.D. Garden. The reason I say this is no one really knew what to expect from this new look C's team who started out the season 0-4 before going on a 4 game win streak then having a disappointing loss against Charlotte...
After taking the night off against the Bobcats, the Celtics will conclude their current homestand tonight when they host the 6-2 Portland Trail Blazers at the TD Garden. I'm not gonna lie to you guys, the Celts probably won't win this one. Even if they play well, I doubt they'll be able to score more points. Right now, they're simply not good enough. But if they are...
I love the scrappiness of this team. There will be lapses and they will be overmatched with the talent on some teams, but I love the way they fight and play hard. It always amazes me when fans have no clue about the history of the game. Most of them complaining about Tommy being a homer have no clue about his history as a player and coach and all he's given to the game over...

M.L. Carr’s Celtics are a cautionary tale of why tanking is risky.
Since the Boston Celtics traded Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to the Brooklyn Nets on June 27th, the average Celtics fan have called for the team to tank the 2013-’14 season.
After watching the Michigan State-Kentucky and Duke versus Kansas games on Tuesday night, it is difficult to cheer for the Celtics. Kentucky’s...
