Chicago Bulls. This is the first of 4 meetings between these two
teams. The Bulls have won 5 straight vs the Celtics at the United
Center. They won the series 3-1 last season. This is the 4th game of a

Jeff Green Cannot Play, And It Has Crippled the Boston Celtics Remember that vaunted Boston Celtics bench? The one that was going to carry the Celts at the very least back to the Eastern Conference Finals, with a chance to bring home Banner 18? The Celtics bench had the quintessential microwave in Jason Terry. [...]
The one (slight?) concern that Celtics fans had in the beginning of the season was the lack of a pure backup PG. There were two sides to that: Yes, it is very important to cut Rondo's minutes efficiently, yet there are no backup PGs available who can do that at a satisfactory level. Celtics' experiments with veteran PGs have not been the best as we all know (save for Dooling...
The Celtics started out the new season with two straight losses, but they’ve bounced back and won four of their last five ahead of Wednesday’s home game against the Utah Jazz.
Who have been the key contributors to the cause so far?
You’ve got to start with Paul Pierce, who’s really taken over and become the nightly scoring threat we were accustomed to seeing. Pierce is averaging...

Rondo got robbed of an assist when Garnett got hit.
Rajon Rondo's spectacular streak of 30 games with 10+ assists has led me to keep a very close eye on his ball distribution of late. As he continues to climb his way up the charts towards the all-time record, I watch each game intently keeping track of his assist count.
While at the Garden last Wednesday I noticed three...
In an NBA.com article this morning by David Aldridge (scroll down past the Laker talk), Keyon Dooling tells the story of a nervous breakdown he sustained this summer, and his subsequent week long stay in a mental institution. He details the experiences that led to his decision to retire from the Celtics, which all stem from sexual abuse he suffered as a child.
Here are the full highlights from the game last night, where Rajon Rondo put up 20 points, 10 assists, 9 rebounds, and 5 steals
How great was Rondo's game last night? Sound off in the comments

Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we've posted some pretty solid clips from the folks over at Network of Champions.As part of their series with Boston Celtics guard Jason Terry, they allowed Jason to show off his shooting stroke.Check out this clip where he makes 50 out of 55 straight jump shots:
After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value.
Offense: 20 points on a very efficient 10-16 shooting. He hit 5 of 6 shots at the rim, and 5 of 8 from everywhere else inside the 3-point line. A few of his turnovers were sloppy, but a few of his passes were spectacular.
Defense: He played the passing lanes...
C’s come away with a big road win in Milwaukee last night, beating the Bucks 106-100. Boston is now in Chicago preparing for their Monday night game with the Bulls. Tip-off at the United Center is at 8pm EST.

In a rematch of the most entertaining seven-game series I have been alive for, the Bulls and the Celtics square off in Chicago at 8:00 pm. This should be the first real test for the Celtics since their opener against the Miami Heat and a test of team cohesion. The boys from Boston have played and lost to some of the middle-of-the-pack teams in the NBA, this will be a good litmus...
Stop thinking and just do what I say
DeMarcus Cousins was suspended again yesterday. This time for 2 games for his attack on Spurs announcer Sean Elliott, based on Elliott's mild criticism of him on the air. Reporters wondered why he got such a serious penalty for going after an announcer, but it's obvious to me. It's called being a repeat offender. Try getting caught...
