The Boston Celtics have always had an issue at the point guard position–even with Rajon Rondo. Rondo has been the driving force behind their offense over the last few seasons. And, after watching last night’s opening night game, the Celtics offense looked atrocious without him. There were very few bright spots in the game. Really, aside from Jeff Green, the Celtics didn’t see much offensive production out of anyone last night. They failed to score at least 20 points against the Raptors in the second quarter and the fourth quarter–the two most crucial quarters in a game if you ask me. A lot of that is because of their lack of production from the point guard position. Even though Rivers is gone, the point guard still serves as a fulcrum for the Celtics’ offense.

Green didn’t just finish 8-of-16 shooting from the floor, he got the foul line for nine attempts (making seven) and rarely got caught waiting for the game to come to him. Thrust into the role of shooting guard...

Red Claws Building Roster With Some Familiar Names

 The Maine Red Claws are the exclusive D-League Affiliate of the Boston Celtics, which allows the Celtics to have a more hands on approach with the club than many teams who share an affiliate have.  Last year, they ran Doc Rivers' system so that when a player was called up,  they were familiar with the plays that were being run by the parent club.   I imagine they will install...

Putting the Opening Night Loss in Perspective

 Ok, so the Celtics lost their first game.  Get comfortable, Celtic fandom, because there will be plenty of room once the bandwagoners jump off.   I realized last night that I really like this team.  Just as I really liked that 2006-07 team that lost 18 games in a row.  They were fun to watch and they played hard but they were young and inexperienced.  That team also had a...
