track and snap a 4 game losing streak. This is the first of 3 meetings
between these two teams this season. They will meet once more in March
and once in April. Last season they split the series, with each team winning 2 games. The Celtics won the last two meetings.
These two teams have
been going in opposite directions. The Pacers have been playing very
well and have won 2 in a row and 8 of their last 10 games. They are 1st
in the Central division and 4th in the East. On the other hand, the
Celtics have lost 4 in a row and have won just 2 of their last 10
games. They have slipped to 4th in the Atlantic, just 2.5 games ahead

Avery Bradley made his return to the court Wednesday in the 93-83 loss to Memphis, and he brought a little reality with him.
The team did show some flashes of confidence with number zero back and had more fight in them than the previous few games, but one thing became clear as the game progressed: Avery Bradley is not the savior of the Celtics.
Granted, he only played 20 minutes...
One thing that is apparent after the last three games: The Celtics don’t yet trust each other. That’s not to say that Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Rajon Rondo don’t trust each other; they do. They don’t trust some of the newcomers, and Garnett made that clear after Sunday’s 118-96 loss in Sacramento.
The Celtics are not on the same page. Some players continue to laugh...

Celtics rookie Fab Melo suffered a concussion last weekend after bumping his head on the doorway in his Sioux Falls hotel room while the Maine Red Claws (Melo’s NBA Development League assignment) were in South Dakota for back-to-back games against the Skyforce.
Melo was seen by the Red Claws medical staff and did not play in the team’s Monday afternoon game. On Wednesday, the...
The Boston Celtics recently called up rookie Fab Melo from the D-League, and it isn’t because he has been dominant, because he has. No, the rookie out of Syracuse was brought up to see the team doctor because he suffered a concussion. The concussion was not suffered in a game. The 7 foot center gave himself a concussion by walking into, rather than through, a doorway, at a hotel...
The guys wore ties… Kurt compares the Celtics to communism… and Stats preaches patience in the latest episode of Gang Green TV. There’s also the requisite trade speculation, Avery Bradley discussion, and even a Star Wars mention.
Another great show from the guys…. and as an added bonus, here’s the show you didn’t see from before Christmas because… well… I’m the...

Indiana Pacers (19-14)
Tommy is such a treasure. The man has been a Celtic for over 50 years. He loves the Celtics and I love that about him. Other teams' fans may bemoan the fact that they get the Celtics feed, but I hate listening to anyone else. Tommy started out with this gem:
On Rondo's importance to the Celtics "He has to be, in an essence, the rabbit for the greyhounds.Let'...
Last night's game was another ugly matchup followed by an ugly performance. Despite a great first quarter, the Celtics managed to fall behind by nine at the half. The third quarter was basically the same, just no shots going in with little defensive resistance on the other end. The Celtics rallied in the fourth quarter, but the mountain was to tall to climb. But, there is some...
They are going to put it together. They are going to go on a run. They will make the playoffs. They will contend for the title this year. Anything is possible!

Serves hot dogs and leads the teamall in the same night
The Celtics have finally put together a performance they can be proud of and against a worthy opponent too. The team has been struggling mightily and the players haven't been putting forth a consistent effort but the energy from Garnett inspired a monster performance. The initial quarter looked bleak and the Celtics...
For the second consecutive night, the Boston Celtics (16-17) find a way to come out victorious in a back-to-back setting beating the Atlanta Hawks (20-12) 89-81.
Doc Rivers’ team experienced a tale of halves tonight. To start off the game the Celtics were horrific with no rhythm on offense and a lack of defense.

Paul George and the Central Division-leading Indiana Pacers aren't thrilled with their latest performance.
At least it came in a win, which is something that has eluded the Boston Celtics over the last week.
Coming off one of their worst shooting performances of the season, the Pacers try for a rare road win in Boston on Friday night while sending the Celtics to a fifth straight...
INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indiana Pacers didn't let their loss at Boston on Friday stop them. They were right back in the winning department a day later. The Pacers used a 25-point third quarter to get some breathing room in their 95-80 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Saturday. The victory made up for a brutal performance against the Celtics the day...
The slumping Milwaukee Bucks have already beaten the Indiana Pacers twice but both of those games were played on their home floor.
For Saturday night's matchup, the Bucks have the more daunting task of traveling to Indianapolis, where the Pacers have won six in a row.
Milwaukee snapped a five-game skid to Indiana with a 99-85 win Nov. 14, and Brandon Jennings' season-high...
