There were many reasons for Avery Bradley to pass up shots in the Celtics’ 89-70 win over the Nets last night. In fact, a statistical case could have been made that Bradley shouldn’t have been involved in the offense at all at important times in the game.

Flannery also wrote in his piece on WEEI.com that Ray Allen was asked not to go to the team facility today to make sure that he didn't spread his illness around to his other teammates, but that he's feeling better. The Celtics could use Allen on Friday as the Pacers come to town. Indiana's better than Detroit, Washington and New Jersey, the three teams that the Celtics...
Can’t shoot; temperamental; thin-skinned; egotistical. These aren’t the most endearing descriptors, particularly when they’re attached to your starting point guard who, incidentally, also doubles as your best young player and the future of the team. Indeed, to even contemplate handing the reins of the most successful franchise in league history to a character as flawed as those...
Ray Allen is in the final year of his deal. Then again, it has been well documented that just about everyone on the Celtics roster is in the final year of their deals. Allen will turn 37 years old this summer and while most superstars his age would have started to fizzle out three or four years ago, Ray has continued to build his case as the greatest shooter the sport has ever...
If Ray Allen ever has an infomercial touting his workout secrets, it wouldn't be a surprise if LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are quickly on the phone to those operators standing by.
The Miami stars have been observing Allen for years, and they're continually amazed at what they've seen. The Boston shooting guard is 36 but hardly seems to have lost anything.
According to Kyle Draper of Comcast Sports New New England, Ray Allen will not be playing tonight against the Nets and Keyon Dooling will play in his place.
NESN speculates that it's a lingering illness, as Ray stated Monday night that he was playing with a bad cold.
Well folks, for those of you (and me) questioning the Big Ticket’s intensity, here’s a video of Garnett throwing water all over himself [and Ray Allen] during the C’s recent matchup against the Washington Wizards. It’s been evident that Garnett has needed to get his legs under him. The condensced everything in 2011-12 has hurt [...]
Mickael Pietrus, who has been nursing a knee injury since signing with the Boston Celtics, could make his debut next week against the Dallas Mavericks. (WEEI)Ainge also told Glenn Ordway and Michael Holley that Mickael Pietrus (knee surgery) could debut for the Celtics next Wednesday vs. the Mavericks at the Garden.It’s unclear exactly what role Pietrus will play, but it seems...
In case you are like me and missed it, here is the video of Kevin Garnett throwing water on himself from Monday's game against the Wizards.
The Celtics shook off a lackluster first half blowing out the Nets 89-70 in Boston . New Jersey was without Brook Lopez and Deron Williams yet hung with the Celtics in the first half. Boston took control in the 3rd quarter and never looked back in a blow out win.
Paul Pierce led the Celtics with 24 points. In Ray Allen's absence Avery Bradley stepped in nicely with 11 points...
Jim RacaltoSo far in this very young NBA season, it seems that Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo is maturing and coming into his own before our very eyes, most notably the drastic improvement in his jump shot. You know, the same jump shot that President Obama and Celtics President Danny Ainge poked fun at last year. [...]Sports-Kings - The Kings of Sports Lists
One of the staple offensive sets that the Celtics run is called "Floppy." We covered it quite extensively last season, but essentially the main play is to set a back screen (or two, or ten) on the baseline for Ray to curl or "flop" around and get open for a jumper. But it also has several options on it as well, including a new wrinkle this season that I'...
After each game, we'll be taking stock in each players... and maybe coach's... performance. If we like what we see, we're buyin'. If we don't, we're sellin'. Or maybe we'll just hold onto our stock until we see more next game
Rajon Rondo: He's here so much I'm going to make him part of the template. The triple-double in game 1...
