Found March 26, 2012 on
In the feel-good aftermath of the Celtics' victory over the Wizards on Sunday, when second-year guard Avery Bradley erupted for a career-high 23 points and Rajon Rondo handed out 11 assists, leave it to Kevin Garnett to unintentionally spark some in-team controversy. "Avery's probably -- Rondo's gonna kick me in the behind for saying this, but -- he's probably the fastest guy on the team," Garnett said. "He's very explosive, and I just don't think he's had a lot of opportunities to show the things that he can do." Rondo had departed by then, but the hyper-competitive point guard could...

Celtics 88, Wizards 76: Avery Bradley’s career night

Avery Bradley hit one 3-pointer during his first 74 NBA appearances. In the past two days, he’s made two. Bradley entered Sunday’s tilt against the Washington Wizards with a season high of 12 points. He scored 15 in the first quarter, during which time the Washington Wizards could muster only 12. Bradley started in place of Ray Allen and Mickael Pietrus and decided to torture...

Boston 88, Washington 76 - Welcome, Avery Bradley

The last time Avery Bradley played 40+ minutes in a basketball game it was without a doubt far away from the TD Banknorth Garden. However, the second year pro got the starting nod in place of the injured Ray Allen and took full advantage of the opportunity. Bradley scored 15 of the Celtics first 21 points en route to 19 first half points and 23 total on 9-14 shooting. With the...

Rajon Rondo is fancy huh

Props to Celticslife for putting this video up for me to see.  This makes me look back at all Rondo moments and ask, is there anyone fancier than Rajon Rondo?  I doubt it.  His clothing swag is even top notch. My next question is, do Kevin and Rondo prep for these?  See more videos after the jump.

Taking Stock: Celtics - Wizards

After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value. Starters Rajon Rondo: Rondo gave a ton of effort for all but the last few minutes of the first half... and then none but the last few minutes of the second half.  Maybe he was trying to expend as little energy as possible as the C's head into a very difficult...

Why doesn't Noah gets suspended like Rondo did?

Over the weekend, Joakim Noah threw the ball at a ref, and then, if you read his lips, started singing a little Cee Lo Green to him. "I see you wait for the miss to call a foul on me and I'm like.. F yoouuuuuuu" Here's the video.   So we have Noah, clearly throwing the ball at a ref in frustration after a tech is called.  You have him...

Ray Allen out tonight and Monday, Avery Bradley to start in his place

#CelticsTalk: Ray Allen out tonight and Mon. vs #Bobcats. Avery Bradley expected to start tonight vs #Wizards.— A. Sherrod Blakely (@SherrodbCSN) March 25, 2012

Taking Stock: Celtics - Bobcats

After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value. Starters Rajon Rondo:  This has become his typical game now.  Single-digit points and big assists.  13 assists is awesome, and the 1-7 shooting is misleading because he was forced to take a few shots as the shot clock wound down.  His 6 rebounds were also...

Comments from the other side - Wizards 3/25

And here are today's Celtics CFTOS. Poor Wizards fans. They start out not expecting much from their team and end up getting even less. I think my favorite comment was the one talking about how it was a good thing that Vesely couldn't understand KG's trash talk. And I love the way they felt that Rondo was just toying with their team.  And of course, there are the...

Celtics Win At Home, Bruins Win On The Road, Dell Debuts

Both local winter entries were victorious last night as the Celtics defeated the Washington Wizards 88-76 at the TD Garden, behind 23 points from Avery Bradley. The Bruins wrapped up their California tour with a 3-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks. Celtics have plenty left in reserve – Mark Murphy has Bradley and Greg Stiemsma playing big roles for the depleted Celtics. How good can...

NBA considering letting advertisers put logos on teams' jerseys

If you were watching the Celtics-Bobcats game tonight on NBA League Pass, during halftime the NBA aired a segment discussing the idea that advertisers might be allowed to put their logos on players' jerseys, like in NASCAR and other sports. I personally am not a fan of the advertising idea, but it did spark a rather funny discussion in the shoutbox about potential...
