Right now the Boston Celtics sit at 8-9. That record as of now is good for second place in a ridiculously weak division led by the Philadelphia 76ers who have feasted on a weak schedule and have been thoroughly crushed by contenders. The Boston Celtics currently sit at 7th in the East and will still likely make the playoffs. The Big 3 experiment in Boston was a fun experiment – one of the true big splashes of the last decade, but Celtics SG Ray Allen, SF Paul Pierce and especially PF Kevin Garnett are coming forth to the twilight of their career.
All three players are the type of veteran presence that could gather a significant amount of prospects and young talent for the future. In every American “major” sports league, teams that are on the brink of contention part with an arm and a leg to get “that last piece” to place them in a serious position to win a title.

Who needs Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo? The Celtics have now won four straight games without their starting backcourt.

Jermaine did a decent job of bodying up Dwight Howard. Without Jermaine, the job will go to either Brandon Bass or Greg Stiemsma. Personally, I just throw Stiemer out there to the Wolves. We need Bass' offense off the bench. And hey, maybe the kid can block a couple of Dwight'...
The Celtics defense was on full display tonight as they used their strength to break out a come from behind victory over the Orlando Magic 91-83. Boston over came a 27 point deficit in the second half led by Paul Pierce and rookie E’Twaun Moore whose three point shooting helped propel the Celtics.

The Celtics did not plan to be a .500 team at this point in the season. Nor could they have foreseen having to depend on Paul Pierce to both set up teammates and carry the scoring load.
