Found January 10, 2013 on Red's Army:
After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value. Starters Offense:     Defense:      Overall:  Kind of a blah effort from Rondo for most of the night.  He looked aggressive early, and he had spurts of energy, but overall, not much to speak of.  He had more energy directing the defense from the bench on the second half than he did on the floor at times.  Offense:        Defense:        Overall:  Clearly, he’s our new backup point guard KG did everything… 10 points, 5 rebounds, 3 steals, 2 blocks…. I know it doesn’t sound like a lot of points, but he was the only starter in double figures and he did all that in 29 minutes. Offense:        Defense:         Overall:  It looked for a hot second that Pierce was going to come out just as hot as he was when he left New York.   But honestly, after that performance, and with the Rockets coming up, a working day off isn’t the worst t

Comments from the Other Side - Knicks 1/7

Knicks fans have to be the most classless in the league.  They even have the Lakers and Heat fans beat for having the least class in the league.  They even beat the Nets fans even though they are now in the same city.   Any time you see fans wishing death or injury on a player, all class has left the building.   They really had no room to complain about the officials either...

Celtics Making Pierce Available In Trade Talks

Paul Pierce has spent his entire career with the Celtics.

The Celtics we saw last night could win the NBA title, Vol. III

Paul Pierce buried the Knicks.  Again. Click here for Part 1 from Saturday and Sunday's Part 2.  I never intended to write more than one of these,  but each consecutive victory has been more impressive than the last.  The New York Knicks we're just half a game behind Miami for the top spot in the East, and boasted a 13-3 home record.  The Celtics were missing their...

Jeff Green’s two monster dunks one year after surgery

I have said a lot of mean things about Jeff Green over the three years that he has been a member of the Boston Celtics. I have compared him to former Boston Red Sox outfielder J.D Drew in the sense that he was a high-profile acquisition that didn’t pan out in the way that the team thought it would. At times, it has looked as if Jeff Green didn’t really care all that much on the...

Recap: The bench grabs the lead early & the starters fend off Houston late for 5th straight win

The Celtics let a 17 point deficit dwindle down to two but Kevin Garnett & Paul Pierce  refused to let this game slip through their fingers. KG dropped 11 of his 17 in the fourth and Paul Pierce landed a big lay-up plus the foul as the Captain would lead the team with 23 points, as the Celtics win their 5th straight, with a 103-91 victory. The Green: The Bench. After a hot...

On the first-year anniversary of his heart surgery, Jeff Green celebrated it by submitting 14 points (on 5-of-9 shooting), 3 rebounds, 1 steal and 1 block in helping lead the C's to an 87-79 win over Phoenix.  CelticsLife celebrates your courageous return as well, Uncle Jeff, with this special wallpaper commemorating one of several dunks you laid on the Suns.  Welcome Back...

Celtics Jeff Green Emotional After One Year Anniversary of Heart Surgery

On January 9, 2012, Jeff Green was laying on a surgical table preparing for surgery to repair a damage aortic root aneurysm. After undergoing urgent heart surgery, Green laid on a hospital bed faced with his biggest adversity ahead of him. While recovering, Green missed the entire 2012 NBA season with his future of returning to the league unknown. Fast forward ahead 365 days however...

RedsArmy presents Fan Friday #37: “Grit & Balls”

Ryan is a 23 year-old Celtics fan from Worcester, Ma. who currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee. I first came into contact with him on Twitter about a year ago. We immediately clicked due to our mutual interest in the Boston Celtics. I was impressed with his vast knowledge of the team’s history. He attributes that to his family-specifically his Grandfather: I’ve been a Celtic...

Boston Celtics 102, New York Knicks 96: Postgame Analysis

In a playoff-esque atmosphere, Paul Pierce and the Boston Celtics (17-17) secure their first three-game winning streak of the 2012-13 season in result of a 102-96 victory over the New York Knicks (23-11). If you missed some of the Atlantic Division match-up due to the tedious BCS National Championship, here is my analysis from the Broadway Showdown. Tremendous collective effort by...

The NBA should look out as the sleeping Giant has been awoken in Boston, C’s have won 5 in a row

The 2012-13 season did not start the way the Boston Celtics wanted it to as they struggled all year.  They came into 2013 with a record 14-16 to start the season, and were badly in need of a spark to turn things around.  Well it arrived on January 2nd in the form of guard Avery Bradley.  Bradley, who has missed the entire regular season up to this point after surgery on both...

Green Envy: What Suns fans said - 1/9

The funny thing about this game is all the praise that the Celtics bench got. They actually outscored the starters for maybe the first time all year. Yet looking at the Suns fans comments, it seems like this has been happening all season. I guess their bench is just horrible. We'll have to see if the Celtics bench can consistently have games like this. Top Three: here comes...

Recap: Celtics earn a frustrating win over Phoenix

The Celtics are an incredibly frustrating team to watch at times, and they did nothing to wash themselves of that image despite a eight point victory over the Phoenix Suns tonight. The Celtics held large double digit leads on the Suns on multiple occasions, only to blow both back down to single digits, or giving up the lead entirely. The Celtics held a 12 point lead at halftime...

Green Envy: What Rockets fans said - 1/11

Houston fans were pretty confident coming into this game. They were even calling this match a trap game, although the Celtics had won four straight coming in. As the confidence started to die, the true colors started to come out as fans seemed to cannibalize the team, saying James Harden is there only good player and Jeremy Lin can't score. Top Three Greg Smith tells KG his...

Four in a row: Boston Celtics beat Phoenix Suns 87-79

The Celtics are over .500 once again. I don’t think any of us expected this to be such an accomplishment before the season began, but here we are. And honestly, after holding the Suns to just 79 points on 39.3% shooting from the field, I think we can agree that it’s really really good to be back.Let’s get to tonight’s bullet points:If we pretend getting the first bullet point...
