With just a handful of games left, there’s a hyper-focus on who might get minutes when the playoffs begin. Last night, Doc went with the big lineup he promised when he made Jeff Green a starter: Avery Bradley, Paul Pierce, Green, Brandon Bass, and Kevin Garnett. That moved Chris Wilcox to the bench, and created an interesting little “Shavlik Randolph vs. Wilcox” scenario.
Who would Doc go to? The new guy who, despite generating some excitement around here lately, is still a Chinese-league refugee who still makes some mistakes based on having played there this past season? Or would it be Wilcox who, despite a familiarity with the team, has been in and out of Doc’s dog house all season?
When Randolph checked in first for Garnett last night, it seemed to give us the answer. Shav’s earning 6th man minutes, and Wilcox’s days are numbered.
But then Wilcox came back into the game, and he performed quite well. And, well, the confusion returned. Who was going to win the Shiv vs. Tril...

John Wall has started to play like the guy who was drafted first overall in 2010. He’s been having huge games and grabbing some wins over playoff teams for the lowly Wizards. Just 24 hours after dropping 37 point on Indiana with 64% shooting, Wall looked like barely an all-star versus the Celtics. Why? Avery Bradley. The Game Changer smothered Wall, covering him the entire length...
The C's 107-96 win last night over the Wizards may have been credited in part to the return of KG and Truth but don't discount the effort submitted by Brandon Bass. The usually quiet Bass turned in a very audible 20 points (on a remarkable 9-of-12 shooting clip), 6 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal and 1 block in helping Boston take its 40th victory of the season. Just in time...
In a show of bitterness, the Boston Celtics Jordan Crawford gave the Boston Globe a really hard time when Baxter Holmes attempted to interview him about facing his previous team the Washington Wizards on Sunday.
When the subject was brought up to Crawford after practice on Saturday he responded by saying ‘who?’

The Celtics beat the Washington Wizards in a game that featured the return of Paul Pierce (who sat the last game due to an ankle injury) and Kevin Garnett, who hadn’t played since March 8. However, it was Brandon…
7:15: At halftime, the Celtics lead the Wizards, 56-52. Just more of the same. This game should be over by now. They just don't try. Keep watching.
8:23: The Celtics have won, 107-96. Finally, they play good against a losing team. These last few weeks have been very tough for this group of guys, so it's good to see them wake up. Brandon Bass had another great game today...
Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce returned tonight, the Celtics moved Jeff Green into the starting lineup for good (and Courtney Lee to the bench, sorry Courtney), and the Celtics put together a quality win over John Wall and the Washington Wizards. A 19-3 run put the Celtics up big in the third quarter and the C’s cruised to an easy victory aside from a collective brain-fart by the...

BOSTON -- What storyline do you want to talk about? The return of Kevin Garnett? Garnett played 25 minutes and scored 12 points while grabbing six rebounds. How about Paul Pierce getting back in the lineup? The Boston Celtics…
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Since Jared Sullinger went down for the season with a back injury, the C’s have struggled to find another “blue collar” guy. Wilcox simply has not had enough time on the floor, and Bass just does not fit that...
The Boston Celtics defeated the Washington Wizards 107 to 96 tonight at the TD Garden. Pierce and Garnett both returned to the lineup, which gave the entire team a nice boost. This win was a full team win, as 5 players scored in double figures and 3 more almost did. Flat-out the Wizards were no match for the Celtics talent. KG was sharp in his return to the court, but the leader...
