After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value. Starters Rajon Rondo:  Ho Hum, another double-digit assist night.  And as a bonus, 9 of his assists led to makes at the rim.  Very often, Rajon is assisting on long jumpers.  It's nice to see a more uptempo game where guys are getting dunks.  It's also nice to see guys running with him that can get to the rim for those dunks. Paul Pierce:  Even when his shot is not falling, Pierce does other things.  He got to the line (and shot 7-7), rebounded (6), and got a couple of steals and a block.         Kevin Garnett: I'm sorry I called you old.  I'm sorry I called you old.  I'm sorry I called you old.  I'm sorry I called you old (I'm supposed to write that 1,000 times as punishment)   Avery Bradley:  He struggled with his shot, but he played a solid 43 minutes and he looked very comfortable playing down the stretch.  I've gotten...

Your Morning Dump... Where Rajon Rondo is on an historic run

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.  But it might be wise to interject here that the Celtics point guard is on a rather historic run. Rondo has had double-figure assists in his last 11 games, a streak not seen since Deron Williams had a similar...

Rajon Rondo's Command of Celtics Offense Reaching Expert Level

All Rajon Rondo has done lately is be perfect. Rondo did have a few blights on his resume in Friday's win over the Timberwolves. He committed two turnovers and hit only three of his 11 shots, if we're splitting hairs, but those flaws hardly registered during a 17-assist performance in which he commanded the Celtics offense as well as he has all season. Rondo extended his...

Rajon Rondo ball fakes make Paul Millsap dizzy

  Here's the proper way to watch this video. Step 1:  Watch it all the way through and be amazed at Rondo's control of the ball and ability to spot his man. Step 2:  Watch it again but focus on Paul Millsap (#24).  At the beginning of the video, he's at the top of the key to Rondo's left.  Step 3:  Offer Paul Millsap Dramamine for the...

Rondo-Rubio I: Entertainment Put on Hold

Once I started to realize that I might be able to afford tickets to the Garden this season, the question of which game to attend came up. I scoured the Celtics home schedule, however I wasn't seeking out LAL, MIA, CHI, or NYK. No, I was looking for something that no Boston fan has looked forward to since 2007: "MIN." Why did I want to see the Minnesota Timberwolves...

Comments from the other side - Wolves 3/30

That was fun.  I love it when KG gets so fired up.  He's so much fun to watch.  Wolves fans have mixed feelings about the Big Ticket: fond memories, feelings of betrayal, love, hate,admiration.  You name it and there is a fan feeling it.  I think the comment that cracked me up the most was "Hey look it's that guy we traded for Al Jefferson".  Of all the hate...

Taking Stock: Celtics - Bobcats

After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value. Starters Rajon Rondo:  This has become his typical game now.  Single-digit points and big assists.  13 assists is awesome, and the 1-7 shooting is misleading because he was forced to take a few shots as the shot clock wound down.  His 6 rebounds were also...

Celtics 100, Timberwolves 79: Four in a row

The Celtics seized sole possession of the Atlantic Division lead for the first time all season, Rajon Rondo dominated an NBA game while shooting three for 11 and scoring six points, Avery Bradley continues to masquerade as a perfectly solid starting shooting guard, Kevin Garnett and crew made Kevin Love slightly uncomfortable all night long, and the aging process (except for you...

Your Morning Dump... Where the Celtics suck at getting to the line

  Photo By Lorianne DiSabato on Flickr.  Yes, that's Sheed on the line.    "We have been a horrendous team going to the line, for the most part, where as in the past we’ve been very good at it," admitted Rivers. "[Pierce is] the guy. [Point guard Rajon] Rondo doesn’t get to the line as much as we’d like, so we need someone to go to the line. Kevin...
