After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value.
Offense: Defense: Overall:
He was in hyper-aggressive attack mode for most of the night and it was a pleasure to watch. When was the last time you saw Rondo drop a 12 point, 0 assist quarter? Five of his 7 buckets came within 9 feet. His defensive statistics were decent (2 steals, 1 block), but I’m upping the grade because of the team’s overall defensive play.
Offense: Defense: Overall:
KG was quiet on offense, taking just 9 shots. But with a red hot Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo, I can’t fault him. He tallied three blocks on defense and should have had a fourth. I’d like to see more than 6 rebounds, especially with Anderson Varejao on the bench. But he’s getting the overall green arrow because if the Cavs shot 40%, KG had something to do with it.

In last night’s loss to the Chicago Bulls, Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo broke out some kicks that were definitely deserving of a win. Rondo debuted the Nike Air Foamposite One “Fighter Jet”, a sneaker that isn’t set to release until February 9th, 2013. This was the 4th time in 2012 that he wore a pair of Nike Air Foamposites on court. Below, check out some of...
Rajon Rondo is scheduled to be handing out dimes to his Celtics teammates on Christmas Day, but that didn’t stop him from spreading the holiday cheer to others this Christmas season.
Rondo played Santa Claus a few days early this Saturday, heading to the Blue Hills Boys and Girls Club in Dorchester, Mass., where he handed out bicycles and played Connect Four with the local children...
KEEP YOUR COOL
Brandon Jennings said that he and Rajon Rondo probably would have fought during Friday's game if not for the prospect of being fined.
Rajon Rondo spent the early part of this season stalking Magic Johnson‘s record of 46 straight games with double-digit assists. Rondo took the streak so seriously he allowed himself to be kept in the game into the final minute of a loss in Detroit just to notch that decisive 10th assist to keep his run alive.
Rondo’s streak eventually ended at 37 games, which tied John Stockton...
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.
Celtics forward Jeff Green sustained a bruised left cheek and chipped multiple teeth after absorbing a stray elbow from Milwaukee’s Ersan Ilyasova in the final moments of overtime in the Bucks’ 99-94 triumph...
Not every team gets the honor of playing on Christmas Day, but the Boston Celtics do. This Tuesday the veteran Celtics will hit the road in a festive matchup with the Brooklyn Nets. Bet on the NBA tradition when the celebrating franchises pull out their limited-edition holiday jerseys at the Barclays Center.
After a mediocre first two months, the Celtics have much to take care of...

Everyone loves to see a match-up for the ages and tonight is one of them as arguably two of the best point guards in the NBA go toe-to-toe for the first time in the 2012-13 season in a Wednesday night showdown.
After missing a month due a broken left index finger, Kyrie Irving is back. His return has been incredible. In the past five games...
As you might expect, Tommy had a rough night with the officiating as bad as it was in this game. I mean what happened to home cooking? Tommy was quiet for a bit after Ilyasova's elbow to Green's head was ignored and my hubby said that poor Tommy was probably on a respirator after that egregious no call. Here's tonight's Best of Tommy and there's lots of good...
Enterprise News Magic Johnson has high praise for pair of Celtics – Magic Johnson compliments both Rajon Rondo and Paul Pierce, calling Rondo “the best all-around’’ point guard in the league. Boston Herald Rajon Rondo points to Avery Bradley’s pressure - Rondo praises his teammate, Avery Bradley, dishes on his recovery, and explains his importance to the team. Sadly [...]
Doc Rivers has changed his rotations this week. Two players impacted have been Chris Wilcox and Jeff Green. Wilcox registered a DNP last night as Doc gave Jason Collins the starting center role. Doc seems to have listened to me and has started using Green almost exclusively as the backup small forward the past two games. For one reason or another Green can not defend 4's and...
Here’s part of my afternoon Twitter exchange with Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix.
I’m intrigued by this deal. Pau Gasol would be a huge help to Kevin Garnett, the Celtics jump shot centric offense and (lack of ) rebounding.
I’d hate to give up a decade of Avery Bradley for 3 years of Gasol. And a move like this is extremely short-sighted. But I really believe Gasol could...
The Bucks did what they had to to win but I'm convinced after watching this again that many of the missed shots were due to fouls not being called on the Bucks. Yes there were open misses but there were also 3 KG layups that missed because he was hacked on the arm. The officials were terrible and it culminated in Jeff Green bleeding on the floor while play went on and the Bucks...
With the Celtics hovering around .500 this holiday season, fans will have plenty of wants.
There are the obvious ones: Wins, Avery Bradley back on the court and in a recent Bleacher Report article, Paul Pierce said he wants a championship for Christmas.
The Celtics haven't been very "good" this year, so Santa probably isn't leaving a ring under the tree.
The Boston Celtics announced today that they have recalled F Kris Joseph from their NBA Development League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws.

The Celtics have once again recalled Kris Joseph from their D-League affiliate Red Claws. They certainly are using the new unlimited recall rules this year to their advantage. Since I haven'...
