Found February 10, 2013 on Red's Army:
THAT WAS A DAMN BAR FIGHT!   After an atrocious reversal by the referees that led to Ty Lawson sending the game to overtime, this game went into a full-fledged bar fight.  It was sloppy, it was gritty, it was big shot after big shot, but eventually the Celtics outlasted the Nuggets, 118-114. So much to talk about, let’s get right into it. The Green: First, Jason Terry was looking everything like the player we all thought he would be. In regulation he dropped 21 points on 8 of 19 shooting being the instant offense man. In overtime he was cold as ice, missing seven straight 3′s but then out of nowhere he hit a mammoth shot with 1:15 left in the 3rd OT. He also had the defensive play of the game, poking the ball away from Andre Miller and getting the steal with 30 seconds left to help close this game out. Second is Jeff Green. He hit a big jumper in the fourth and then a huge game tying 3 in overtime when everybody else was ice cold.  That’s right Jeff Green hit big shots & Jason T...

Winning with 8 guys: replace Leandro Barbosa with Jeff Green

Jeff Green is picking the right time to flourish. The Celtics roster now consists of 10 healthy bodies.  Shockingly they have the most depth at center (4 of the 10); however one of them (Fab Melo) has no business being out of the D-League, and another (Jason Collins) should only be used in case of emergencies.  Regardless, Melo and Collins are both big awkward players that offer...

Green's 18 not enough as Celtics fall to Bobcats

Tired legs and one head-scratching move by Doc Rivers, sealed the fate of the Boston Celtics.  We all knew from the start that this was going to be a game of will rather than that of skill.  Pierce and Garnett kept them in it, but with no one willing to drive the ball, they reverted to old habits. KG did ass he is wont to do, drifting farther and farther away from the basket...

Recap: C’s lose game, streak, and Leandro Barbosa

That was a giant **** sandwich.  The Celtics were expectedly fatigued in the first half, but they maintained a level of aggression that got them to the line a bunch, even in sloppy half court possessions.  But they completely went down the toilet for most of the second half. What kind of game was this?  This was a true statement at one point: @redsarmy_john Who would have thought...

Celtics-Nuggets Live: Ty Lawson, Danilo Gallinari Lead Run-And-Gun Attack Into Snowy Boston

8 a.m. ET: No team in the NBA is hotter than the Denver Nuggets — not even the guys from Boston, who are on a six-game winning streak. After lurching through a road-heavy schedule to begin the season, the Nuggets (32-18) are on fire. They have lost just three games since Jan. 1, going 15-3 in that span, including their current eight-game win streak. Before that they had a six...

Celtics’ Win Streak Ends But Status of Leandro Barbosa, Avery Bradley of Much Greater Concern

Jason Terry‘s last shot told the whole story. With the Celtics up by four and Terry seemingly heating up with two 3-pointers in the fourth quarter already, the veteran sharpshooter let loose a long-range shot that might have put the nail in the Bobcats’ coffin. The other four guys in green jerseys turned to jog back down the court, anticipating another flight for the Jet. As...

Celtics Streak Ends in Loss to Bobcats 94-91

On Monday night the Celtics were in Charlotte for their second of back-to-back games. The Celtics extended their win streak to 7 on Sunday in a triple overtime victory against the Nuggets. Looking ahead many saw this game as an easy win but that changed drastically after the three overtime game Sunday. The Celtics ran out of gas in the fourth and fell victim to the trap game 94-91...
ANOTHER MAN DOWN

Barbosa injures knee, likely done

The Boston Celtics' backcourt keeps getting thinner. Leandro Barbosa left Monday's game with a knee injury, and it's not sounding good.  Barbosa could join Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger as Celtics who are done for the season.

Rondo still Celtics leader while injured

Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo may be out for the season with a torn ACL, but that doesn't mean he's gonna just sit at home. Rondo has stay involved with the Celtics,

Rest Up C's, You Will Need It

One more game left, until the well rested break. The Boston Celtics finish the first half of the season, trying to get revenge on a Bulls team that beat us by a lucky shot by Marco Belinelli. But my point of this article is not about that game, but it is for the Celtics to rest up and get ready for the crazy second half of the season. We are so many players down, I have lost track...

Celtics Heat Up The Garden With A Triple Overtime Thriller

Celtics 118, Nuggets 114 (3OT) What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object? Apparently, multiple overtimes happen. The Celtics (27-23) held the fast-break happy Nuggets (33-19) in check for three quarters before Sunday night’s game evolved into an epic back-and-forth contest between two teams that were on six and nine game winning streaks, respectively. In...

Is anyone else as confused as me?

CelticsLife readers and writers. I need your help. I can't wrap my head around this crazy season the Celtics are having. Before the year began, I thought this was the best Celtics team we've had during the Garnett era.  Unfortunately, we sputtered out of the gate, and while we've had our moments, it has pretty much been a disappointing season up until this recent win...

Grit and balls on display, Celtics outlast Nuggets 118-114 in triple overtime, win 7th straight game

No words folks, no words. Simply put, sports are better than anything else because of this game. The Celtics outlasted the Nuggets 118-114 in triple overtime behind monster performances by (guess who), Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. Pierce had 27 points, 14 rebounds and 14 assists. No that is not a typo. Garnett put up 20/18/6. Both could not shoot their way out of a paper bag...

There’s a New Big Three in Town

As the Boston Celtics and Denver Nuggets stood by eagerly, while officials gathered around the replay monitor, I couldn’t help but be overcome with a strong sense of déjà vu. The Celtics led 92-90 with little under four seconds to play. The Nuggets’ Kenneth Faried had just missed two potential game-tying free throws, Andre Miller failed to make good on the team’s 1,039...

3 OT Effort Lifts Celtics To 7th Straight Win

The Celtics needed three overtimes, but managed to get their seventh win in a row, with a 118-114 victory over the Denver Nuggets at the TD Garden. Denver had come into the game having won nine in a row themselves. The Celtics were paced by the “old” guys, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry, who all logged big minutes, and the Celtics play on the road in Charlotte tonight...
