This week's Fan Friday features Dana from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Dana is one of the many Celtics fans that I interact with via Twitter. Despite living thousands of miles from Boston and the TD Garden, the Celtics are very close to her heart.
Dana's father, a big NBA and Boston Celtics fan himself, named her after retired Celtic Dana Barros. Her Dad was always a big fan of Barros' even before Dana played for the Celts. Dana's father was the one that got her interested in basketball and the C's. He's been a diehard fan since the days of Bird, Parish and McHale. Dana's father took her to her 1st ever Celtics game last season in Utah. Living in Canada, it's obviously a challenge to get to C's games. But Dana says that all the money she's spent on plane/game tickets is "worth every penny."
Dana lists Rajon Rondo as her favorite Celtic player. She says his "heart, dedi

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.
But it might be wise to interject here that the Celtics point guard is on a rather historic run. Rondo has had double-figure assists in his last 11 games, a streak not seen since Deron Williams had a similar...
All Rajon Rondo has done lately is be perfect. Rondo did have a few blights on his resume in Friday's win over the Timberwolves. He committed two turnovers and hit only three of his 11 shots, if we're splitting hairs, but those flaws hardly registered during a 17-assist performance in which he commanded the Celtics offense as well as he has all season. Rondo extended his...
Here's the proper way to watch this video.
Step 1: Watch it all the way through and be amazed at Rondo's control of the ball and ability to spot his man.
Step 2: Watch it again but focus on Paul Millsap (#24). At the beginning of the video, he's at the top of the key to Rondo's left.
Step 3: Offer Paul Millsap Dramamine for the...
Once I started to realize that I might be able to afford tickets to the Garden this season, the question of which game to attend came up. I scoured the Celtics home schedule, however I wasn't seeking out LAL, MIA, CHI, or NYK. No, I was looking for something that no Boston fan has looked forward to since 2007: "MIN."
Why did I want to see the Minnesota Timberwolves...
So I was searching through old posts and I couldn’t find any posts about Rajon Rondo’s AMAZING pass he made a couple weeks ago against the Warriors. Personally, and I’m sure you guys will agree, that this is the pass of the year for sure. People need to understand how hard of a pass this is to make:
^That pass is almost as good as his magical pass he made during this summer...
That was fun. I love it when KG gets so fired up. He's so much fun to watch. Wolves fans have mixed feelings about the Big Ticket: fond memories, feelings of betrayal, love, hate,admiration. You name it and there is a fan feeling it. I think the comment that cracked me up the most was "Hey look it's that guy we traded for Al Jefferson". Of all the hate...
I have not seen a better 1st half from the Boston Celtics in a long time. Everything was clicking; Rondo was driving and dishing, Pierce was attacking, KG was nailing jumpers and everyone was playing great defense. The C's held the Jazz to 37% from the field, and only turned the ball over 2 times. Rondo and Ryan Hollins connected on 2 alley-oops, and the C's went into...
The Celtics seized sole possession of the Atlantic Division lead for the first time all season, Rajon Rondo dominated an NBA game while shooting three for 11 and scoring six points, Avery Bradley continues to masquerade as a perfectly solid starting shooting guard, Kevin Garnett and crew made Kevin Love slightly uncomfortable all night long, and the aging process (except for you...
After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value.
Rajon Rondo: Ho Hum, another double-digit assist night. And as a bonus, 9 of his assists led to makes at the rim. Very often, Rajon is assisting on long jumpers. It's nice to see a more uptempo game where guys are getting dunks. It'...
The Boston Celtics defeated the Minnesota Timerwolves last night, 100-79, and with that win combined with a Philadelphia 76ers loss to the Washington Wizards, the Celtics have moved into first place in the Atlantic Division. Kevin Garnett led the team with 24 points, and Paul Pierce threw in 21. Rajon Rondo had 17 assists [...]
Kevin Garnett scored 23 points and added 10 rebounds, and Rajon Rondo had 14 assists to lead the Boston Celtics to a 94-82 victory over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night.
The win was Boston's fifth in six tries. The Celtics moved into a tie with the Philadelphia 76ers atop the Atlantic Division.
Former Celtic Al Jefferson had 18 points and 12 rebounds for the Jazz, scoring 10...

The Celtics were able to do last night what most teams have been unable to do for most of the season – neutralize Kevin Love. The T-Wolves power forward has been putting up ridiculous numbers this season with ease. He had three 40-point games in March alone and fell just 9 points short last night of scoring 500 points in March! The Celtics were able to limit Love to just 22 points...
