PLAYERS: Sasha Pavlovic
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
How did I miss this video? It's one of the best interviews of all time (And no Zang not because Rondo is shirtless). Doc has said more than once that Rondo is the smartest player he's ever coached. Rondo's high praise for Sasha proves it.

Avery Bradley gives Celtics kick start, shoulder looks fine

Avery Bradley made just two field goals last night, but they were early and he was super aggressive and — who knows? — maybe the resulting onslaught never would have occurred without the kick start from Boston’s most baby-faced guard.Bradley didn’t know he would even suit up until just more than an hour before tip-off, when Boston’s team doctors watched him shoot jumpers...

Why no Greg Stiemsma, Doc?

We spent the last two or three months of the regular season learning how Greg Stiemsma can impact a game, how he blocks a lot of shots and normally plays proper positional defense, how his rebounding and defensive low-post position have improved quite a bit since the Celtics’ season-opener on Christmas Day, how he occasionally hits jumpers because he weirdly possesses a nice...

All Celtics expected to play in Game 5

It’s always good when the full stable of horses is healthy, but in this case it’s especially heart-warming to know that:A) Paul Pierce’s “I tripped and wiped out while dribbling during shootaround” does not have to enter the pantheon of weird injuries next to Derrick Rose’s “I rolled over while eating an apple and landed on a knife.”B) Ray Allen’s ankle continues...

Rajon Rondo rhythmic in dominant Game 4

(Reggie Miller: “Oh no he didn’t. No he didn’t!”)Kevin Garnett often discusses the importance of rhythm in basketball. He does not take days off during the postseason because he does not want his flow impeded by any amount of rest time, and he has been surprised that Ray Allen could return after so much time off and immediately knock down jumpers like he never missed a...

Woj: Rondo is coming for the Heat

Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski wrote a spectacular column on Rajon Rondo and the threat he poses to the Miami Heat: Rondo’s rising again, on a tear for months, and he’s still the biggest potential barrier between Miami and a return to the NBA Finals. He was his genius passing and playmaking self – 16 assists, one turnover – in the Celtics' 101-79 victory over...

QuickVid: Celtics’ Keyon Dooling and Hawks’ Josh Smith talk after Game 4

Miami Heat fearful of Rondo, Celtics Avengers

Adrian Wojnarowski, Yahoo SportsOne year later, the Miami Heat’s most troublesome threat in the Eastern Conference has never been so determined to deliver LeBron James and Dwyane Wade the cruelest of losses. Privately, Rajon Rondo has never stopped thinking about redemption. Three hundred sixty-five days ago, Rondo lay on his back, the pain shooting out of a dislocated elbow, and...

Kevin Garnett, Celtics' Success on Defensive Glass Encouraging, But Must Be Taken Mildly Against Hawks

BOSTON -- Riding high and fully rested in the final weeks of the regular season, the Celtics players were hesitant to name any weaknesses they wanted to shore up for the postseason. To a man, though, none could deny that defensive rebounding was one area in which they wanted to improve. Four games into their first-round playoff series with the Atlanta Hawks, the Celtics have shown...

Hawks push series to six with 87-86 victory over Celtics

This game was very strange.  A pure dog fight until the very end.  The Hawks were up big while giving up the lead entirely in the last two minutes of the 3rd, setting up one physical fourth quarter.  Atlanta was able to secure the victory after basically trying  to throw the game away literally. Well don't take my word for it, watch below. Many angles...

Enemy Chatter: KG can get anything he wants

I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Atlanta. Kevin Garnett scares me. Garnett's intensity, as scary and as disturbing as it is, isn't the scariest part. It's that it seems like he can get anything he wants against the Hawks...

Plenty of Roadblocks Remain for Celtics on March to Potential Championship

The Celtics are on the brink of eliminating the Atlanta Hawks from the playoffs so, unsurprisingly, C's fans are pretty optimistic about the team's chances. With three tries at closing out Atlanta before turning their attention to the Chicago-Philadelphia winner, Doc Rivers and the Celtics will have their work cut out for them against a team with its back against the wall...
