“These are dog days. This is really where you really see who’s with you. Ain’t nobody cheering, ain’t no lights on us and I love this right now. Because this is where all the plastic people melt right here…We gotta play better….We gotta have some self pride in ourselves. Gave up 100 and something points three games in a row, and it ain’t been close. We gotta at some point take it personal, you know?” – Kevin Garnett

Avery Bradley returns on Wednesday for the Celtics and could be the spark they need
The Boston Celtics are struggling in 2012-2013. As the schedule turns from 2012 to 2013, the Boston Celtics are two games below .500 and their troubles are highlighted by a post-Christmas west-coast swing where they lost three games to the Warriors, the Clippers and the Kings by an average of 21 points...
Nothing Earth shattering here, considering January 2nd has been the rumored date all along, but still, good to see this coming out of today's practice, from Scott Souza and A. Sherrod Blakely.
#Celtics guard Avery Bradley said he expects to play tomorrow night.

One thing that is apparent after the last three games: The Celtics don’t yet trust each other. That’s not to say that Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Rajon Rondo don’t trust each other; they do. They don’t trust some of the newcomers, and Garnett made that clear after Sunday’s 118-96 loss in Sacramento.
The Celtics are not on the same page. Some...
WALTHAM, Mass. — Avery Bradley may be making his return at just the right time for the Celtics, who must be wondering if their backcourt will ever be whole.
Rajon Rondo did not practice on Tuesday, and Celtics coach Doc Rivers said earlier in the day that the point guard is questionable for Wednesday’s game against the Grizzlies. Rondo has a bruised right thigh and hip as a result...
With all the controversy surrounding helmet-to-helmet hits and concussions in the NFL, it’s about time we start talking about low hanging door hinges and 7-foot NBA players.
Celtics rookie center Fab Melo suffered a concussion walking into a door while in Sioux Falls, S.D., last week, according to Chris Forsberg of ESPN.com. Melo returned to Boston from the NBADL to treat the injury...
The Celtics need a big man. But so do a bunch of other teams, so acquiring one could be problematic.
Enter DeMarcus Cousins.
The beleaguered Kings forward has been ticking people off recently, but his talent level is undeniable. And according to Kentucky Sports Radio, the Celtics are one of the teams looking to acquire Cousins.
The C’s, Mavericks, Magic and Bobcats are reportedly...
During practice Tuesday, Celtics coach Doc Rivers said the team will be graced with the return of Avery Bradley, who hasn’t played in seven months and is coming off surgery on both his shoulders, for Wednesday’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies.
Bradley said he hasn’t felt any pressure, he’s just happy to be back.
“Just like any other day, I’m going to prepare today...
They only lost by 10 this time!
The Memphis Grizzlies came out hot, making four of six shots. That's when Paul Pierce took over. He sparked Boston with 12 points in the first 10 minutes, helping the team take a lead that was as high as 4. Unfortunately, that was maybe the best stretch in the game for the C's, and it was the first quarter.
The Grizzlies survived that and...

BOSTON (AP) -- Mike Conley had 23 points and nine assists to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to a 93-83 victory over the Celtics on Wednesday night and send Boston to its fourth consecutive loss.
Rudy Gay scored 19 points and ex-Celtic Tony Allen had a season-high 15 points for Memphis.
Paul Pierce scored 17 for Boston, but he had just one basket in the third quarter and none in the...
The DeMarcus Cousins rumors continue to swirl, and it's getting to the point where the old "where there's smoke - there's fire" adage is coming into play. One name that is consistently popping up as a possible trade chip for the Celts is Avery Bradley. Bradley is ready to return from shoulder surgery (double shoulder surgery at that) as soon as Wednesday night...
8 a.m. ET: In keeping with the theme of this season, the Celtics took one step forward while taking one step backward on Tuesday. Avery Bradley confirmed that he is good to go for the game against the Grizzlies, making his first appearance since Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals in Philadelphia. But his fellow starting guard, Rajon Rondo, is questionable as he continues...
7:30: Well, tonight the Celtics will be forced to play the now proud Memphis Grizzlies. The Grizzlies, who are 19-9, have oddsmakers favoring them by 2.5 points in this one. Memphis is not a great road team, as they are just 6-6 away from the FedEx Forum. The Celtics, who are just 14-16 overall, are 9-5 at the Garden but haven't won there since December 19. Tonight will feature...

This is EXACTLY what James Naismith had in mind.
“I can get compared to Kevin Garnett, his inside game. Outside game, Dirk Nowitzki, explosive like Amar’e (Stoudemire). Those three guys I like to compare myself and mix them all together and do a little bit of triple threat.”
If you remember, this is how the former BJ Mullens described himself before the NBA Draft a few years...
