Found December 26, 2011 on Fox Sports:
PLAYERS: Brandon Bass
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
Knicks star Amar'e Stoudemire performed his good deed early on Christmas, staging a 9:30 a.m. ET breakfast party for a few hundred Madison Square Garden employees forced to work on the holiday. "They work here but never get a chance to see the players -- the janitors, cooks, ushers,'' Stoudemire said before Sunday's season-opening, 106-104 victory over the Celtics. "It was a great opportunity for myself to do something special for them and put smiles on their faces on Christmas." Stoudemire then put smiles on the faces of Knicks fans with an efficient 21-point performance (8-of-11 shooting) that included six rebounds and two blocks -- one a final-minute rejection of Celtics terror Brandon Bass. Stoudemire's highlight was draining both of his three-point attempts, tying his career high. During training camp, he bragged about his new three-point prowess, but did not show it much in two preseason games. Read more here

Will Brandon Bass Have the Biggest Impact of Any Celtics Offseason Addition?

The trade that sent Glen Davis to Orlando was not popular among some Celtics fans, who had grown fond of Big Baby's unconventional game and attitude, but it was hard to argue with the immediate results. Brandon Bass, whom the Celtics received in return for Davis, was arguably Boston's best frontcourt player in the season opener in New York. The seventh-year forward had 20...

Leftover thoughts from Celtics-Knicks

Brandon BossNo, that wasn’t a typo. Brandon Bass = Brandon Boss. He had 20 points and 11 rebounds yesterday while shooting 9-13. But the stats alone don’t tell the story. I’m confident when Boss shoots jumpers. I’m happy when he gets aggressive (which is almost all the time). I’m thrilled that he has the athleticism to finish in traffic and not get his shot blocked 95...

Boston’s Debut

What looked like what was going to be a Christmas catastrophe nearly turned into a Christmas miracle today as the Celtics fell to the New York Knicks 106-104. Although the loss certainly put a damper on my Christmas spirit initially, we are Boston Celtics fans, we are intelligent fans, and we should understand that this was the first game of the season. We should also understand...

New York Knicks 106, Boston Celtics 104

The Celtics shot 51.3% from the floor yesterday and they outrebounded the Knicks 41-31, so they won….right?  Wrong, the Knicks outscored them 27-17 in the 4th quarter to snatch a win from the Celtics.  The Celtics left everything they had on the floor yesterday.  Rajon Rondo led the way for the Celtics in this game with 31 points, 5 rebounds, 13 assists and 5 steals as he had...

Answering The Call: An Early Look Around The NBA

The NBA started, on Christmas, what was an unbelievable set of games. First game. Celtics, aging yet gaining BRANDON BASS? Rondo plays like he’s on fire. Ray Allen can still drop 3’s, and BRANDON BASS? WOW. They can still play. Just don’t watch them any time on a back to back. Which will be a lot. Jajuan Johnson and Etwaun Moore will have their hands full trying to sub in...

Recap: C's comeback falls short, Heat win 115-107

The Celtics really have to stop trying to make huge comebacks.  For the second straight game, the Celtics fell behind big early, staged a furious comeback, and then fell short.  This time the Celtics didn't quite make it all the way back.  They got as close as 3 points, but the Heat took advantage of more sloppy play by the C's and held on to win by 8.  The Celtics...
