Found March 13, 2013 on Red's Army:
The Celtics took a 9 point lead into the half, but with about two and a half minutes to go in the third, the C’s hit the gas and left the Raptors in the rear view mirror.  They crushed the Raps 112-88 for their 10th straight home win.  The Celtics bench was a giant part of the blowout, outscoring the Raptors bench 58-29. The Green:  Paul Pierce had a nice return from his day off, doing a little bit of everything with 15 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists. Jeff Green was pretty good tonight, I’d say.  Check out this stat line:  20 points (7-14 fg, 1-2 3pt, 5-5 ft), 6 reb, 3 ast, 2 stl, 1 blk. Brandon Bass did a nice job early being aggressive.  He tailed off a bit in the second half, but he was very important early on.  I think the 5-5 from the line shows he was attacking, and the 2 block and 5 rebounds show he was helping on D. Jason Terry was distributing the ball nicely with a team-high 7 assists.  That went nicely with his 12 points on 4-6 shooting. Jordan Crawford did a nice job t...

Paul Pierce might rest tonight

Hearing Paul pierce may have tonight off for rest — greg dickerson (@gdickerson_csn) March 12, 2013 Got to hand it to Doc… he’s taking advantage of the schedule to rest guys at times that minimize the impact on the team. If Pierce sits, Jeff Green will start.  I’m also going to bet this means KG sits tomorrow night.  He’s due for another day off.

Paul Pierce Hopes Heat Loses All Of Their Remaining Games

You can’t tune out the fact that the Miami Heat have won 20 straight games and are now tied for the third-longest winning streak in NBA history. The longest, 33 in a row, was done by the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers. But, if you ask Paul Pierce what he thinks about the potential of playing the Heat on a 22-game win streak come Monday, he simply doesn’t care and if truth be told...

Celtics not impressed by Heat winning streak

"I really don't even care. I hope they lose every game the rest of the season. I just worry about what this team does"-Paul Pierce I just love this team. No other team in the league is as hardcore as the Celtics. They don't care about being liked and what other teams/fans think of them.  They embrace the rivalry they have with the Heat and don't try to suck...

Celtics-Raptors Live: With Paul Pierce Back in Uniform, Celts Aim to Snap Losing Streak

8 a.m. ET: OK, so the first part of this back-to-back didn’t go the way the Celtics planned. With Paul Pierce taking the night off, the Celtics “laid an egg” in Charlotte on Tuesday, in coach Doc Rivers’ words, dropping their second straight game and losing a bit more ground in the Eastern Conference playoff race. Now, after failing to take care of business against the league’s...

Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce Continue to Play Large Roles in Celtics’ Move Up in Playoff Standings (Audio)

It wasn’t that long ago that rumors were swirling about drastically changing the Boston Celtics roster to make a playoff run, but after no blockbuster trades were made, the C’s find themselves sitting pretty in the standings and working with what they have. Only 3 1/2 games back of the New York Knicks in the division standings, the Celtics can almost look back to earlier in the...

Bradley, Green and Rondo could lead the Celtics into a new era?

Rondo and Bradley form a talented but undersized backcourt. The title of this post might have you questioning my sanity, which might be justified, but hear me out. Rajon Rondo, Avery Bradley, and Jeff Green all play important positions in today's NBA which does not emphasize post play. They all have the ability to play the type of intense defense (even Rondo) that would make...

Comments from the Other Side - Raptors 3/13

It was sad to see 4 pages on one game thread and 19 on another.   Those game threads used to have over 100 pages every game.  The Celtics did get the benefit of some calls last night.     I'm amazed at how many fans hate their head coach.   Makes me very thankful for Doc.  Good game for the Celtics.  Not so much for the Raptors.  Enjoy today's comments...   This...

Raptors-Celtics Preview

The Boston Celtics have played surprisingly well since losing point guard Rajon Rondo for the season. They were stunningly awful without Paul Pierce for the first time in 2012-13. Pierce should be back on Wednesday night when the Celtics try to win their 10th straight at home and 10th in a row overall versus the Toronto Raptors. After the Celtics' five-game winning streak...
