Celtics need to pick up the pace in Game 2

How can the Celtics eliminate some of their sloppy turnovers in half-court sets? By staying out of half-court sets: “Some of those easy opportunities have to come in transition,” said Pierce. “Kicking the ball ahead to myself, Jeff [Green] is something we want to emphasize. We feel like if we can get the ball up and advance passes before the defense, it says it gives us an...

Video: Doc talks after Monday's practice

Here's Doc Rivers media interview from Monday's practice courtesy of the Boston Celtics. The Celtics aim to even up the series vs the Knicks tomorrow night.

Keep following plan B

The Celtics lost the game yesterday to the Knicks. New York was glad to accept the gift from us. It won´t happen again. For three full of thrill quarters the Celtics frustrated any single attempt from the isolation plays by Carmelo Anthony to overpower us. It didn´t matter how offensively talented the hosts were, we always fought back and punched them in the guts right away....

Doc Rivers, Tom Thibodeau Lament Grumpy Atmosphere at Team Hotel That Celtics, Bulls Are Sharing in New York

NEW YORK — One New York hotel, two unhappy basketball teams. The Boston Celtics and Chicago Bulls are staying at the same location this weekend. Both lost their playoff openers Saturday, the Celtics falling 85-78 to the New York Knicks and the Bulls getting routed 106-89 by the Nets in Brooklyn. “This was a quiet, dark hotel last night. The New York-area teams didn’t treat...

Turnovers cost Celtics chance to win Game 1

Rajon Rondo was unable to join his team Friday as planned, stuck in Boston while the city was in lockdown. He arrived in New York on Saturday, even offering his teammates some tips from the scouting report. Unfortunately for the Celtics, he still can't play. The Celtics badly missed their injured point guard Saturday, costing themselves a chance to win their playoff opener...

Chicago Bulls and Boston Celtics Share a Hotel

What a weird coincidence, two losing teams sharing a hotel. Boston.com reported that the Chicago Bulls and the Boston Celtics shared the same hotel last weekend after they both got beat in their game 1's of their series. ‘‘This was a quiet, dark hotel last night. The New York-area teams didn’t treat the guests very well,’’ Celtics coach Doc Rivers said Sunday. Doc...

Misery loves company: Celtics, Bulls in same hotel

One New York hotel, two unhappy basketball teams. The Boston Celtics and Chicago Bulls are staying at the same location this weekend. Both lost their playoff openers Saturday, the Celtics falling 85-78 to the New York Knicks and the Bulls getting routed 106-89 by the Nets in Brooklyn. ''This was a quiet, dark hotel last night. The New York-area teams didn't treat the...

Doc still making excuses for Terry’s poor play

Jason Terry dropped a giant goose egg (0 points, 0-5 FG) in Saturday’s loss to NY. As usual, Doc Rivers took the blame: Even after 35-year-old Terry went scoreless on Saturday — the first time he’s been held without points in a playoff appearance — Rivers offered a vote of confidence for the veteran guard. “We didn’t do a good job with [getting Terry going] last night...

Doc Rivers: ‘New York teams didn’t treat the guests very well’

The Boston Celtics and Chicago Bulls are sharing the same hotel in New York this week, which may not be a good thing for either team following both teams Game 1 losses on Saturday. The Celtics lost to the New York Knicks 85-78, while the Bulls lost to the Brooklyn Nets 

Turnovers the Difference in Celtics' Game 1 Loss

  Celtics' 21 turnovers prove too much to overcome There are plenty of reasons the Celtics fell short Saturday afternoon in their playoff opener against the Knicks. That the Celtics scored just eight fourth quarter points would be a reasonable place to start, especially when you consider that Boston led by three heading into the fourth. Then there are Jason Terry’s zero points...

Celtics Bench Non-Existent In Game 1 Loss To Knicks

  There’s got to be a reason … seriously. Why would Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers only utilize three guards in Game 1 of the opening round of the NBA Playoffs against the New York Knicks? Whatever the reason, the Celtics are now in a 0-1 hole after dropping an 85-78 decision Saturday afternoon. Big man Shavlik Randolph averaged north of 30 points per-game in the Chinese Basketball...

Your Morning Dump… Will the Celtics be focused on the Knicks?

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. “The (bleep) is crazy,” Garnett said. “Everybody is trying to at least focus in on, obviously our game, the playoffs. But the obvious, everybody’s worried also.” Said Jason Terry: “We’re still thinking...

Your Morning Dump… Where Jordan Crawford could get more minutes tonight

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. “I thought he was good,” Rivers said. “He stayed in his lane, let’s put it that way. He didn’t go outside of it. Usually guys in their first [playoff] game, they do one or the other. Some guys don’t...
