Found January 15, 2013 on Red's Army:
Who or what deserves credit for the Celtics inspired play and 6-game winning streak? Is it Avery Bradley? Consistent bench play? Whatever the answer, we need to add Keyon Dooling to the list of reasons, reports Jess Camerato: “Keyon Dooling has actually helped, actually,” said Rondo. “He’s been in the locker room, amping guys up. His personality, I think it started with him.” Dooling earned the nickname “The Reverend” last season for his inspirational and impassioned talks. His trademark question, “What’s driving you?” has forced countless athletes to look within and realize what they were playing for each day. Rondo has noticed a change in the locker room since Dooling began infusing his personality within the walls. The point guard has seen his teammates playing more loosely on the court, with role players like Courtney Lee and Jeff Green smiling more often since the team began hitting their stride. “Our spirits are better, obviously,” said Rondo. “It’s not fun losing, and sinc

Avery Bradley, Jared Sullinger, and the Celtics winning streak

Remember when the Celtics were on a four game losing streak at the start of the new year, losing three of four by more than fifteen points? And when Avery Bradley’s return against Memphis meant little to the final score? Me neither. The Celtics have rattled off 6 straight wins, and they are 6-1 with Avery Bradley back in the starting lineup. They started the streak with a manhandling...

Kevin Garnett: The most well rounded player in NBA history

Kevin Garnett is on the precipice on joining a very exclusive club. A club so exclusive in fact, that when he joins it, he will be it's only member. With 32 more assists, Garnett will pass Sleepy Floyd for 50th on the NBA's all-time assist leader board (5,144). This is important, because Garnett already ranks in the top 50 in rebounds (12th - 13,566), points (17th - 24...

Recap: Celtics offense disintegrates in awful loss to Hornets

The 6 game winning streak was fun while it lasted. Tonight the Celtics treated us to one of those mind-numbing, head-shaking, go-through-the-motion performances we’ve come to hate, yet accept. The result: a 90-78 loss to the Hornets. The Celtics managed just 78 points vs one of the league’s worst defenses. I don’t have a shot chart, but they took A LOT of jumpers. Here’s...

Taking Stock: Celtics – Bobcats

After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value. Starters Offense:     Defense:      Overall:  He was 4-4 from 16-23 feet, and despite down-shifting into 3rd gear after starting the game going all out in 5th gear, he still came up with the big play when needed.  Offense:        Defense:...

Good enough: Boston Celtics beat Charlotte Bobcats 100-89

The Celtics don’t blow bad teams away.We know this by now. It has been the case since 2008 when the Hawks inexplicably took the Celtics to seven games in the first round of the playoffs. For whatever reason, whether it be motivation or something else, Boston just doesn’t blow out very many teams. Instead, they grind things out, lose a few games that they shouldn’t lose, and...

Even Carmelo Anthony's fans are now getting clowned by Celtics

Would be funnier if it was the real Carmelo Anthony, but it's pretty wild nonetheless. If you don't speak Twitter, basically a Knicks fan by the name of Matthew Shin, aka @Melo4MVP, put out a tweet saying if if Knicks fans retweeted it 2000 times he'd smack Jeff Green in the face at the next Celtics/Knicks game. Jeff Green responded (as he often does to people who say...

Celtics-Hornets Live: Doc Rivers, Austin Rivers Meet for Family Reunion at TD Garden

12 p.m. ET: It is safe to say that Austin Rivers never envisioned his rookie year being like this. The New Orleans combo guard has had one of the roughest first seasons in memory for a lottery pick, averaging 6.2 points per game while shooting just 32.8 percent from the field. The 10th pick in the June draft has scored one whole point in his last five games and has made only three...

Hornets-Celtics Preview

It can't be easy for Doc Rivers to see his son struggle as a 20-year-old rookie in the NBA, but Austin Rivers' recent woes may make Wednesday night a bit less confusing for the Boston Celtics coach.
