Milwaukee Bucks (2-1) vs Boston Celtics (2-1)

Thomas and Mack Center, Las Vegas, NevadaGame Thread
The Celtics will be playing short handed again, but at least this time they have had a day to digest the trade and work on a new game plan to make up for the missing players. They found out about the trade when they were already on the floor getting ready to warm up for the game and that must have made it tough on the guys to play.
Both the Bucks and Celtics have 2-1 records in Vegas play. The Bucks are coming off a win over the D-League stars. The Celtics are trying to come back from a loss vs Sacramento.
One player to watch is the Bucks first round draft pick, John Henson, a 6'11" power forward they nabbed with the 14th pick. He is averaging 17.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game. He will be matched up with the Celtics' own first round pick, Jared Sullinger, who is averaging 9...
BEST OF MAXIM
According to ESPN Boston's Chris Forsberg, center Greg Stiemsma has an offer sheet above the Boston Celtics' qualifying offer. We heard a while ago that Minnesota was going to offer him $3 million. However, it looks like his offer sheet is NOT from the Timberwolves, according to ESPN Twin Cities Darren Wolfson. It's not clear as to who the other team is at this time...
Last night, Celtics fans held their collective breath as there was news on Twitter that the Courtney Lee deal was liable to fall through. We all remembered what happened last year with David West, and didn't want another nightmare.
Luckily, the deal did go through according to sources, and Courtney is on his way to Boston. But now it appears that Sasha Pavlovic is also included...

Goldiblocks may be done wearing Celtics green. Former Celtics forward Greg Stiemsma has agreed to a deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune reports. Since Stiemsma is a restricted free agent, the Celtics could match any offer, but they're tight on cash after several other signings and likely won't be able to match what the Wolves are reportedly...
We don’t know which team presented Greg Stiemsma with an offer sheet. But the Minnesota Timberwolves are reportedly ready to offer him $3 million for one season, and another mystery suitor has reportedly presented him with an offer the Celtics almost certainly won’t be able to match. (ESPN Boston)Restricted free-agent center Greg Stiemsma has received an offer from a new...
Well, it looks like the question I asked in my last post has been answered. Via ESPN Boston’s Chris Forsberg:
Sources: Celtics set to ink veteran big man Jason Collins to a one-year, veteran minimum deal. Adds 7-footer to bench.
Collins is 7-feet tall. I think that is obviously the most important part of this transaction. A solid back...
In this nationally televised NBA post-game report from March 2nd 2003, Our very own Breakdown Show’s Dave Mendonca, interviewed various Toronto Raptors after a win against Antoine Walker and the Boston Celtics.
The Minnesota Timberwolves have signed restricted free agent Greg Stiemsma to an offer sheet.
The agreement made on Saturday gives the Boston Celtics three days to match the offer or let the big man go to Minnesota. Terms of the deal were not immediately available.
Stiemsma averaged 2.9 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 13 minutes per game for the Celtics last season. Boston...
At one time this season, the great Tommy Heinson compared his defensive powers to Bill Russel. Whether or not this was another one of Heinson’s homer hyperboles (it was), the fact remained that Celtics center Greg Stiemsma’s was a good and intelligent low-post defender in addition to being one of the Boston Celtics’ best stories in 2011-12. He had never averaged more than 10...
The Houston Rockets are sending shooting guard Courtney Lee to Boston in a multi-team trade.
The Rockets will receive a second-round pick in next year's draft from Boston, via Charlotte, forward JaJuan Johnson, guard E'Twaun Moore and forward/center Sean Williams. Houston will also acquire the rights to guard Job Diebler from Portland. The Celtics completed the deal by trading...
The Minnesota Timberwolves and Greg Stiemsma reportedly have agreed on a one-year deal that will move the second-year center from Boston. The deal is thought to be worth between $2 million and $3 million. Stiemsma, 26, averaged 2.9 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 55 games for the Celtics last season. He was a restricted free agent who had received a $1.05 million qualifying...

LAS VEGAS A year ago, Tobias Harris was the Milwaukee Bucks' future. A year ago, he was fresh from his one year at Tennessee, the 19th pick in the 2011 draft. A year ago, he was pure potential.
A year ago, John Henson was still in college. He'd just won the ACC Defensive Player of the Year award, and he'd decided to remain in school...
