Found March 05, 2013 on Celtics Life:
The Herald's Steve Bulpett had a bunch of great quotes from one of the newest Celtics, guard Terrence Williams. Of course the big news last week was that the C's signed Williams for the rest of the season, with next year becoming guaranteed if Williams makes the team out of training camp. The security is nice, but the former Louisville Cardinal doesn't want to get too comfortable. From Bulpett's piece (link). It’s unreal,” Williams said. “I mean, if somebody wrote this three weeks ago, nobody would believe them. “You know, for a guy that supposedly has all these attitude problems and (expletive) like that, to go to China and be able to get picked up in the same year — and now hopefully a two-year deal — that’s God working. Only God could write that story, and I believe that God don’t make no mistakes.” “It’s a comfort level, but I don’t want to be too comfortable,” he said yesterday before practice and a flight to Philadelphia. “At the end of the day, my ultimat

Reports: Doc is leaving it up to Pierce whether he takes a night off or not

Doc Rivers is leaving it up to Paul Pierce whether or not he should sit out a game to help recuperate the pinched nerve in his neck. According to Boston Globe, Courtney Lee said Pierce has a “get out of playing” card he has yet to cash in. While it makes sense for Doc to let Pierce sit out a game if he asked for a night off, (it's not like Rivers is going to say, “No...

Paul Pierce Quiet Hero as Celtics Execute Game-Winning Play, Serve Notice They Are Still Factor in East

These are the moments Paul Pierce lives for. The score was tied, the Celtics had possession and there was enough time for one final shot to steal a road win against one of the NBA’s elite clubs. In almost every similar situation previously, the ball has gone to Pierce, his teammates have cleared his side of the floor and the shifty veteran has gone to work for the inevitable, contested...

The Boston Celtics are up to their same old tricks

The looks on the Pacers faces after Jeff Green’s last second game winning layup are priceless (click to enlarge). The Celtics just beat the Indiana Pacers (the #2 team in the East) in the second night of back to back games road games; something they’ve shockingly done twice in a row against very good opponents (Utah 9 days ago, in the “best win of the year” until now), after...

5 Things Celtics must do to win tomorrow - 76ers 3/5

Tomorrow, the Celtics will head back on the road for a matchup with their division-rivals, the 76ers. So far this season, the Celtics are just 1-3 against Philly and 0-1 on the road. Despite those bad numbers, the Celtics have played well recently with two consecutive victories over the Jazz and Warriors. I'm not sure that the C's will be favored tomorrow night, but I do...

Green's bucket caps Celtics' rally

Kevin Garnett found Jeff Green all alone under the basket for a layup with 0.5 seconds remaining to finish off a fourth-quarter comeback from 14 points down, and the Boston Celtics beat the Indiana Pacers 83-81 on Wednesday night. Garnett led the Celtics with 18 points and 10 rebounds and dragged Boston back after they trailed most of the final three quarters. Green had 11 points...

Your Morning Dump… Where KG has gotten smarter

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. “We’ve given him more time off this year than we ever have for him,” Rivers said. “In the past, we couldn’t even brooch that subject with him. This year, he wants the days off. So, I think he’s gotten...

Celtics hold off feisty 76ers

Paul Pierce had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Avery Bradley scored 22 points to lead the Boston Celtics to a 109-101 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night. Kevin Garnett scored 18 points to help the Celtics continued their push up the Eastern Conference standings. The Celtics entered in seventh, but were no more than two games behind the next three teams ahead in the...

Bradley Leads The Celtics Over The 76ers

Celtics 109, 76ers 101 Avery Bradley stepped into the role of defensive leader and communicator over the weekend as Kevin Garnett (along with Paul Pierce and the rest of the 35-and-over crew) missed practice to rest up in preparation before another stretch of five games in seven days. According to ESPNBoston, the 22-year-old found his voice while leading a practice group with an...

Underrated Stat of the Night - Pacers 3/6

Tonight, the Celtics won a thriller in Indianapolis, 83-81. The C's trailed pretty much the whole game before a huge rally in the fourth quarter. Few words can describe the feelings that we all felt heading into last play. Boston executed the play perfectly, finding Jeff Green wide open in front of the rim for the go-ahead layup. The Pacers couldn't complete the pass on the...

Avery Bradley Applies Defensive Mentality First, Acknowledges Offense Will Follow

Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/ Getty Images Avery Bradley has always been known to be a knack on the defensive end — whether it is on-ball defending or full-court rundown blocks — but Tuesday’s 22-point performance against the Philadelphia 76ers was a true testament to his demeanor. Last year in his rookie campaign, he wasn’t able to flourish mainly due to multiple shoulder...

The Game Winner

To be honest, I didn't think the C's could pull this off.  Trailing for most of the game and down by 14 midway through the 3rd quarter, the Celtics, I thought, were beginning to tire on the second night of  back-to-back road games.  But slowly their resolve surfaced.  First through the Big Ticket, then through the Captain, and then on through the rest of the team - JET...

Celtics-Pacers Live: Avery Bradley Tries to Bring Offensive Firepower Into Indianapolis

8 a.m. ET: The Celtics are in for a real test. After taking care of business with wins over the Warriors and Sixers — wins that should be expected — they drive into Indianapolis to face one of the league’s toughest up-and-coming squads. The Pacers (38-22) are really good, especially defensively. They allow the second-fewest points per game and hold opponents to the lowest field...

Doc Rivers Believes Jordan Crawford, Terrence Williams, Other Newcomers Need to Start Learning ‘Celtics Way’

WALTHAM, Mass. — As the unofficial second half of the season heats up, the Celtics have dispensed with any talk of how they will proceed after losing Rajon Rondo, Jared Sullinger and former member Leandro Barbosa to season-ending injuries. Subsequently, Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge decided against subtracting major players and instead made more modest...
