Here's another edition of the Best of Tommy. When Tommy and Mike were doing the Mailbag, Tommy got a question asking who would win a championship first - Perk or Ray. His answer was classic Tommy. Who wins a championship first: Perk or Ray? "Uggghh. Ohhhh....I'm not gonna guess. I'm just gonna say 'Mail again after the All-Star Game.'" — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) November 24, 2012 It was nice to see Jeff Green have a big game. I hope he's breaking out and that it wasn't just a single game against his old team. Here's Tommy's take on that big drive by Green that seemed to get him going. On Green's drive: "They cut him off on the strong side, but he has enough lift in the legs to get it off on the weak side!" — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) November 24, 2012 More on Green after a jumper. "He's looking for his offense. I love that he's looking for his offense!" — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) November 24, 2012 Tommy likes Sully and here's his take on Jared's hustle that led to a steal. Sullinger steals: "That's a #TommyPoint!" — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) November 24, 2012 The Celtics lack of rebounding has been one of Tommy's favorite subjects. He's a 10 time champion as both a player and a coach and he knows what he's talking about. He was happy to see the Celtics work harder on the boards tonight. How did the #Celtics take a 2nd-quarter lead? "They've got five guys rebounding! That's what you've gotta do!" — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) November 24, 2012 And on Perk dribbling up the court after a steal. "Here comes Perk! Chug-a-lug! Chug-chug-chug!" — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) November 24, 2012 They don't call Jason Terry "Mr Fourth Quarter" for nothing. Here's Tommy's reaction to JET's big plays down the stretch. "Here comes Perk! Chug-a-lug! Chug-chug-chug!" — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) November 24, 2012 "Here comes Perk! Chug-a-lug! Chug-chug-chug!" — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) November 24, 2012 And you can call him Mr Obvious, but Tommy knows what won this game. "The defense was about 100% better than it was against San Antonio." — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) November 24, 2012 And Paul Pierce won the Tommy Award for his great play on both ends of the court. The Captain can still get it done! "This guy continues to just win #TommyAward's!" Paul Pierce wins it tonight with 27 points, going 4-6 from 3! — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) November 24, 2012 [Discuss on CG Forums!]

Jeff Green's breakout game tonight!

So far this is dunk is about all we've seen from Green. The Celtics have lost two in a row.  They're in danger of falling below .500.  This evening will be the first time Jeff Green has ever played against his former team.  If all of those things don't set him up perfectly to have his best game of the year, than I don't know what does. So far his season highs...

Recap: Celtics salvage season with huge victory over Thunder

So I may have reached a bit with my headline, but I needed that win. Fueled by Paul Pierce and Jeff Green, the Celtics beat the Oklahoma City Thunder, 108-100.

The defense came alive (in the 2nd and 3rd quarters...

Celtics vs Thunder Wrap Up

We finally saw the Jeff Green from the preseason that had been compared to James Worthy. Let's hope that he's here to stay and doesn't regress again. He was aggressive and that's what the Celtics need from him. Along the same lines, we finally saw some aggressiveness from the whole team. They played defense and got stops. They were aggressive going to the basket...

Green Envy: What Thunder fans said - 11/23

It's kind of funny to get Thunder fans perspective on this Jeff Green trade. It seems like they feel the same way about Perk that we feel about Green, especially after Uncle Jeff's big game tonight.

Recap: Celtics give Doc, fans gray hair, but get W in Orlando

The Celtics hold on in Orlando tonight to beat the Magic 116-110 in OT. Looked like the Celtics would continue their stellar play from Friday night early, but a nightmare 3rd quarter where Boston’s defense vanished and Orlando shot the lights out made this a nail biter. The Green: Rondo came out of the gate on a mission. He had 4 assists in the first 4 minutes of the game, 9 at...

Green comes back to haunt Thunder in Celtics' win

By Mike ShalinThe Sports Xchange BOSTON -- In most situations, Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks would be thrilled to see Jeff Green have the kind of game he had Friday night.

Jeff Green Breaks Out Against Former Team, Combines With Paul Pierce to Make Tough Night for Kevin Durant

BOSTON — Jeff Green found the concept baffling. His good friend and former teammate, Kevin Durant, dropped 29 points against him, yet it was suggested that he and Paul Pierce had teamed up to make the Oklahoma City Thunder forward’s night miserable. “He still got 37 points,” Green said, before he was quickly told Durant’s actual scoring total. “Close to 30, whatever....

Comments from the Other Side - Spurs 11/21

Spurs fans have the usual Pierce and KG hate. I'm sure the Jason Terry hate comes from his time across the state with the Mavs, but I'm not sure where all the Jeff Green hate comes from on the Spurs boards. I've put my favorite series of comments in bold. What are your favorites? Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving to all the Celtics family. Hate the Celtics with a passion...

Recap: Spurs handle the Celtics inside & out in a 112-100 loss

This just in: the Spurs are REALLY good. Between their incredible chemistry and remarkable passing, it was just too much for the Celtics to handle. Whether it was the FIFTY EIGHT points inside the paint or the 8-of-16  shooting from downtown, the Spurs just showed the Celtics what a title contender looks like a 112-100 loss.

Rondo The Silent Killer: YOUR 2012-2013 NBA MVP

I just got back from an 8-hour drive this Saturday with only one thing on my mind…except for a couple X-rated things. I just wanted to sit on my couch, watch the Celtics play the not so exciting Raptors. Why would I be so enthralled over one lousy regular season game? The answer has two words. RAJON RONDOOOOOOO.  Man, I haven’t been so excited over a player on the Celtics since...
