After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value.

Early on, Rondo’s contribution was strictly scoring. Once again, he shot 50% from 16-23 feet. He did only shoot 3 of 9 for the game, but a couple of those shots were half way down. After finishing the first quarter with no assists (inciting a bunch of “oh my God is his streak in jeopardy?” comments), he whipped off 10 assists in 14 minutes of play by aggressively pushing the ball and forcing the defense to react to him. And as Sherrod Blakely mentioned on Twitter last night, with defenses a little more worried about his jumper, the lanes for alley oops are presenting themselves more often.
He was fine on the defensive end. Nothing stood out good or bad. Now let’s just hope his ankle is ok.

Every so often, Garnett is going to have an average game. This was one of

Nets head coach Avery Johnson recently expressed his frustration about how Celtics veteran forward Kevin Garnett is always calling out his team's plays on the floor.
According to Dan McCue of the Courthouse News Service, Jason Terry of the Boston Celtics filed a lawsuit in Federal Court against his former financial advisers alleging they lost $2.4 million of his NBA earnings in various Ponzi schemes and risky investments. The Suit specifically mentions William Crafton Jr. as Terry’s adviser, a man who [...]
Avery Johnson hates when Garnett calls Johnson's plays before they happen. Understandable.We missed this yesterday, which is a shame, but Avery Johnson had some very complimentary things to say about Kevin Garnett before the game.These quotes come courtesy of Mike Mazzeo at ESPN New York:“The funny thing is, I wish he would be quiet on the floor and not call out your plays...
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.
“Courtney just came out and played,” said C’s coach Doc Rivers. “He didn’t think about if he was starting, or not starting, how many minutes, who’s playing. He played basketball tonight. When he does...
Kevin Garnett whips a cross-court pass to Jeff Green in the weak-side corner. Green gives a slight up-fake and takes off down the lane. Now it’s time to go all-in or get shut down. Let’s go all in. Green has Al Jefferson directly in front of him with Paul Millsap and Derrick Favors surrounding him. [...]
Two things are certain from the comments. Nets fans hate Courtney Lee. They don't like having more Celtics fans at their games than Nets fans. And, they couldn't deny the fact that they caught several breaks from the refs. They also realize that they lucked out with Rondo's absence. Enjoy today's Comments...

BOSTON — Anyone who claims that a dunk is only worth two points has never been in the building when a player delivered a true facial to a helpless defender.
Jeff Green produced just such a highlight-reel dunk on Wednesday, when the reserve forward bulled into the lane, elevated over Al Jefferson and slammed the ball home over the reeling Utah Jazz center. The TD Garden crowd erupted...
The NBA announced All-Star ballots for each team today, and the Celtics are well represented, with five players.

I'm a little disappointed Brandon Bass was left off for Green. He has...
Some good stuff from KG hating to Paul Pierce's old man game that was killing them. Of course there are the Tommy haters. Funny that they hate on Tommy for being a homer, but when I watch other teams' announcers it seems that they are just as much homers, as they should be. And of course they hate on their own players... Al, Mo, Foye. Enjoy today's CFTOS.

Kevin Garnett said Celtics Jeff Green needed to find his inner a$$hole and get mean. Wednesday night Jeff showed he has a little mean in him. Check out his dunk on Utah Jazz’s Al Jefferson. Look, that was SEXY!! Oh, Jeff had a comment about the dunk on Twitter. Don’t worry Jeff, you’re [...]
The Celtics were cold in the 4th quarter. If they weren’t dunking the ball, that ball wasn’t going through the hoop.
Lucky for the Celtics, pulled off two plays that got them the high-percentage shots they needed at crucial times. Actually… it was the same play… just run on opposite sides of the floor.
Here’s the first one:
The play really happens at the :13 mark with...
Only 5 games into the season it is way to early to panic about this team or jump off the bandwagon. I said this at the beginning of the season we need to wait about 20 games to really judge this team and make a judgement to weather this team is going to make a title run. The good with this Celtics team in the first 2 weeks has to start at the top with the play of PG Rajon Rondo....
