Found March 17, 2012 on CLNS Radio:
The Kings started this one off hot, building up a big lead early on against a road weary Celtics, utilizing their youth and athleticism, taking a 26-20 lead after one quarter. The Kings were able to force the ball to Demarcus Cousins while Marcus Thornton and Jason Thompson packed a scoring punch.  Behind their captain [...]

Paul Pierce ridiculously professional regarding trade rumors

Paul Pierce told reporters today he doesn’t mind that his name was mentioned in seven million trade possibilities this week. He even would have been okay with being traded, so long as the deal helped the Celtics. (Paul Flannery Twitter)“If it was something that was going to better the Boston Celtics in the long run, I’d have been happy for them.”“They’ve done a lot...

Marquis Daniels Likely To Be Waived

Celtics swingman, Marquis Daniels is being listed as one of the most likely candidates to be waived in the next few days as a measure to open up roster spots for the Celtics. Daniels started the season off strong, but has since lost significant minutes and now hardly plays due to ineffectiveness. The Celtics are [...]

Kings 120, Celtics 95

Marcus Thornton hit five 3-pointers scored a season-high 36 points and the Sacramento Kings snapped a three-game losing streak with a 120-95 win over the Boston Celtics on Friday night.

No luck for the Irish, Boston Celtics lose second straight, looked old and home sick

Saturday evening provided yet another dip in the green machine roller coaster. The Boston Celtics have lost their second straight game, after winning 8 of 10, following the all-star break. The long and athletic Denver Nuggets put the pressure on the Celtics early and often. Apparently, the high altitude of Denver did not help the [...]

Jermaine O’Neal injury update: Center seeing how he responds to treatment

The past month has brought a dozen different non-updates on Jermaine O’Neal’s wrist injury, each of which has been more vague than the last. The latest non-update is slightly more detailed, as Danny Ainge points out that O’Neal is still rehabbing and deciding whether he can return this season. (Boston Herald)“Not yet,” Ainge said yesterday when asked if O’Neal’s situation...

Just Us

Larry Bird is not walking through that door. Jeff Green is not walking through that door. Hell, Jermaine O'neal and Chris Wilcox are not either for the rest of this season. Chris Kaman? Nope, not him either. The point? There will be no saviors coming to Boston this season. (excuse the overused door references) Yes, Danny Ainge made calls and took calls to get help for the...

Enemy Chatter: Celtics looked cemented to the floor

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 Sacramento. Thornton was absolutely scorching. So many of his baskets came on catch-and-shoot opportunities where the ball was barely in his hands. But as soon as he let go, you felt like it was money. ...

Celtics aren't lucky on St Patrick's Day losing to the Nuggets 98-91

Early season first half woes have seemed come back.  Struggling to score in the first half has led to awful results for Boston, as of late, as they lost another game tonight.  This time the Denver Nuggets walked away with a 98-91 victory at the Pepsi Center. Trying to play a different style of basketball never works.  This is what happened in Sacramento and is continuing...

Ainge Explored Trades As Both Buyer, Seller

Danny Ainge worked on a variety of trade scenarios both big and small, but was unable to execute a deal.

Would you rather watch Gasol or Rondo?

There has been a lot of trade talk recently and quite frankly I'm tired of it. From a business decision maybe some of these crazy ideas Ainge has in his head make sense. From a real person with a heart, it doesn't. Do the Celtics need a big man? Of course they do. But I'd rather see us go out in the second round with Rondo then go out in the second round with Gasol...

What in the world is going on with Jermaine O’Neal?

Jermaine O’Neal re-aggravated a wrist injury on Feb. 20. That’s almost a month ago. Since then, there hasn’t been a single real update to his status except, “Well, there’s a chance he gets season-ending surgery, but he also might just get a cortisone shot, but really, nobody knows anything for certain.”There was a rumor yesterday, from the highly reputable Adrian...
