It felt like a repeat of Saturday’s game as the Celtics come out strong to an 11-2 run and everyone getting a bunch of assists. Paul Pierce was playing like a man on a mission, knocking down a three and getting to the line early. But once KG came out, the Wizards crept back into it despite shooting 29% from the field to make it 21-16 at the end of the first. KG had 9 boards in the quarter and Rondo had 6 points & 2 assists.

Celtics Live Blog: Paul Pierce, C’s Shoot for Three Consecutive Wins as Sixers Come to Town

8 a.m. ET: As underwhelming as the first two weeks of the season have been for the Celtics, the team can climb above .500 and notch its first three-game winning streak of the season with a victory on Friday against a familiar foe.

First Flopping Warnings Issued

Today is historic. The league has issued its first two warnings for flopping. As you might expect, it wasn't LeBron or Wade or Chalmers for any of their flops.

No, they picked two role players to make the patsies of...

Doc Rivers Draws Hard Line Against Overplaying Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce In Early Season Despite Celtics’ Struggles

WALTHAM, Mass. — With every cutter who slips past an unwitting Boston defender, the personnel changes made by the Celtics during the offseason become more glaring. Dramatic roster turnover from one year to the next is not unique to the Celtics, but three games into the season this team has been hardly the efficient machine it was near the end of last season. Doc Rivers is not surprised...

Wrap-Up - Chris Wilcox Saved the Game

Doc Rivers, Kevin Garnett, and Paul Pierce all gave credit to Chris Wilcox for helping to turn the game around last night, which is amazing since he played less than 4 minutes. But he came into the game in the second period and brought energy and effort that the Celtics were missing at that point and it inspired his teammates to do the same. Both Jeff Green and Chris Wilcox underwent...
