Nate Robinson bugged the **** out of me when he was with the Celtics with is ill-advised threes… but Doc Rivers always said he would occasionally win you a game. He did tonight for the Bulls, dropping 5 of 7 three pointers in a 100-89 Bulls win. To add to this craptastic effort, Joakim Noah dropped a triple double on the C’s
The Celtics had the lead down to 3… 70-67… with 3:40 to go in the 3rd. With 3:22 left in the 4th, it was 100-79. That’s a 30-12 run over the span of 1 quarter.
Rondo had a big scoring night, leading the way with a game-high 26. KG was hot early, and Pierce dropped 16 on 6-10 shooting.
Where to start….
The Celtics refused to defend… again. They gave up 28 and 27 point quarters to a not-so-great offensive team that was playing in a back-to-back while the Celtics had 2 days off.
The Celtics without Garnett on the floor are putrid. They’re almost as bad when Rondo’s off the floor. Doc R

In last night’s loss to the Chicago Bulls, Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo broke out some kicks that were definitely deserving of a win. Rondo debuted the Nike Air Foamposite One “Fighter Jet”, a sneaker that isn’t set to release until February 9th, 2013. This was the 4th time in 2012 that he wore a pair of Nike Air Foamposites on court. Below, check out some of...
With a slew of veterans with varying levels of experience, the Boston Celtics have the appearance of a veteran team.
But as Celtics coach Doc Rivers points out, there’s more to having a veteran team than simply throwing together a bunch of guys who have been around the NBA block a few times.
“Where I think people get mixed up, there’s a difference between a veteran team and...
The Celtics lost again on Tuesday night, something that has become quite the trend through the first quarter of the NBA season.
The C’s, who were one game from the NBA Finals, just a few months ago, now find themselves sitting at .500 with a 12-12 record. They sit in third place in the Atlantic Division (six games behind the first-place Knicks) and are in eighth place in the Eastern...
But the Celtics are one of the Eastern Conference teams most predicted would finish ahead of the Bulls this season. And they won the first game between the teams last month. But the Bulls went to 14-10 with the victory and the sagging Celtics back to .500.
“I think we have the right group,” said Rivers. “We’re going to keep searching. But this (Celtics) team is not a good...
For those of you who are new to TSHQ, first of all welcome. Grab a seat. Would you like a drink? I believe K.M. Venne and Cole Zwicker were just discussing the intricacies of JaVale McGee’s self-indulgent retweets of himself over a fine burbon whiskey. Toward the early days of this sites inception onto the world wide web I penned a short article about why Rajon Rondo was more important...
The Bulls may waive Nate Robinson and his non-guaranteed contract by Jan. 10 if Marquis Teague continues to play well in his extended minutes.
Not every team gets the honor of playing on Christmas Day, but the Boston Celtics do. This Tuesday the veteran Celtics will hit the road in a festive matchup with the Brooklyn Nets. Bet on the NBA tradition when the celebrating franchises pull out their limited-edition holiday jerseys at the Barclays Center.
After a mediocre first two months, the Celtics have much to take care of...
Does someone else need to start scoring?
After the Celtics 95-94 OT loss in Philly a little over a week ago, Magic Johnson said something on the ESPN post-game show that has stuck with me. Magic stated that in order for Boston to contend, Rajon Rondo was going to have to score 20-25 points a game. While I don't believe Rondo is about to be that guy, I am starting to wonder...

Everyone loves to see a match-up for the ages and tonight is one of them as arguably two of the best point guards in the NBA go toe-to-toe for the first time in the 2012-13 season in a Wednesday night showdown.
After missing a month due a broken left index finger, Kyrie Irving is back. His return has been incredible. In the past five games...
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.
“Jason Collins, for getting one point and two rebounds, had an amazing impact on the game for us,” said Celtics coach Doc Rivers.
His ability to defend the post and draw charges not only provided a much-needed...
To win in the NBA, it takes effort. The Boston Celtics did not bring enough effort, losing to the Chicago Bulls, 100-89.
The Celtics were able to keep things close through three quarters, but let things get away from them in the final frame.
There was just a supreme lack of defensive intensity all night, as the Bulls scored 24-plus points in all four quarters. The Bulls were quicker...

Doc Rivers has changed his rotations this week. Two players impacted have been Chris Wilcox and Jeff Green. Wilcox registered a DNP last night as Doc gave Jason Collins the starting center role. Doc seems to have listened to me and has started using Green almost exclusively as the backup small forward the past two games. For one reason or another Green can not defend 4's and...
According to the official Twitter of the Boston Celtics, guard Avery Bradley will practice with the C’s today in Chicago for the first time this season.
