Jordan Crawford has been with the Celtics for 13 games, and is still adjusting to being on a playoff team after coming from the Wizards. Doc Rivers hopes that he will be able to help the Celtics' late-game woes   Prior to Sunday's loss in Oklahoma City to the Thunder, the Celtics had won five straight games and were finally seeming to fully hit their stride after the season-ending injury to Rajon Rondo. However, of those five wins, two were decided in overtime and all were decided by single-digits, something that Doc Rivers does not find a lot of joy in. The average margin of victory in those games has been 5.2 points per, which is probably much, much too close for the Celtics' -- one of the league's older teams -- liking. From the Boston Globe's Baxter Holmes: "The habit we get into, to me, is when we get a lead, we want Paul to bring the ball up every time down," Rivers said. "And that's not what we want. We want to get the ba...

About the only positive that can be drawn after the worst effort of the season for the Celtics, was this Doc Rivers quote following the game. Courtesy the Boston Globe's Baxter Holmes.

Paul Pierce: The Celtics want to see Miami in the playoffs, “I always thrive on wanting to play against the best.”

Just a few days ago an Eastern Conference scout told Marc Stein that without Rondo, Miami would win a Celtics-Heat series in five. Well Paul Pierce doesn’t care about the scout at all; in an interview with David Aldridge, Pierce said that not only does he want to play Miami, but he feels the Celtics have shown they can beat the NBA’s best:Me: When you won in ’08 KG famously...

Paul Pierce to get night off vs. Bobcats?

From CSNNE's Greg Dickerson: Hearing Paul pierce may have tonight off for rest — greg dickerson (@gdickerson_csn) March 12, 2013 If Dickerson is right, this seems like a well timed and wise decision by Doc.  The last time he rested one of his stars the KG-less C's played one of their better offensive games of the season, blowing out the Suns 113-88 in Phoenix in the...

Recap: Entire Celtics roster takes the night off in Charlotte

The joke was on us tonight. Doc Rivers didn’t just give Paul Pierce the night off, he rested the entire team. That’s the only reasonable explanation for the effort the Celtics gave tonight in Charlotte. The C’s were annihilated by the lowly Bobcats, 100-74. It wasn’t even that close. Gerald Henderson torched the Celtics for a career high 35 points. I was half-joking when...

Celtics Offense Sputters In Oklahoma City As The Winning Streak Comes To An End

Thunder 91, Celtics 79 The good news is that the Celtics (34-28) were able to slow down the Thunder’s elite offensive attack on Sunday afternoon. They controlled the pace, and made a concerted effort to attack the boards on both ends of the floor. The C’s gave themselves a chance to win by turning this game into a halfcourt slug fest where speed took a back seat to execution...

Celtics Don't Give Up, Lose to Thunder

The Boston Celtics lose to the Thunder, 91 to 79. Paul Pierce had 20 points along with 6 assists and 4 rebounds. Kevin Garnett shot very poorly, 5 for 18 from the field. Kevin Durant got 11 free throws to go for 23 points. My boy Jeff Green though had another MONSTER SLAM. I feel like we could have won this game, we never gave up and we continued to fight. The Celtics were an 11...

Underrated Stat of the Night - Bobcats 3/12

Tonight's game was pathetic to watch. I feel embarrassed for the Celtics right now. It was the f****** Bobcats! They were handed this win. Obviously, they just didn't want it. Tonight's USOTN goes to the record of the Bobcats. We all know that the Bobcats suck, but this year they really suck. They went into tonight with an NBA-worst 13-50. You have to win these games...

Cold as ice: Oklahoma City Thunder beat Boston Celtics 91-79

Jeff Green's return to Oklahoma City was less than stellar.The worst part about this afternoon’s loss was the defense.I don’t mean that the defense was bad. It was fantastic. Kevin Durant shot just 6-16 from the field. Russell Westbrook managed just 11 field goal attempts. The Thunder overall were 44% from the field and 25% from 3-point range. The Celtics were on point throughout...
