We know it's bound to happen once in a while. The head coach has a player's back and the ref has enough and out goes the coach. It's happened a few times with Doc and will probably happen again. Last night, Doc put his coaches in that position by staying in the locker room after the half. Word is that Doc just wanted to watch the presidential debate but that's...
Darko Milicic will likely miss his first chance at a TD Garden debut against the Brooklyn Nets Tuesday night with a mild wrist strain. Milicic sported a large ice wrap on the wrist in the locker room before the game. Although Milicic said he should be okay in a few days, Doc Rivers said he [...]
Boston Celtics center Darko Milicic was expected to get a cortisone shot in his ailing right wrist, according to multiple media reports. Milicic, who joined the Celtics in the offseason, missed Boston's home exhibition game Tuesday against the Nets, and he likely will sit out the teams' rematch Thursday in Brooklyn. According to the Boston Herald, coach Doc Rivers said...

Not much to say about this one except to learn from it and move on. The Celtics stayed within 2 in the first quarter but after that, it wasn't even close. Once again, one of the culprits was turnovers as the Celtics gave the ball away 21 times. Another problem was once again their pick and roll defense. That's one thing they have to solve before the season starts because...
I do not want to see this become reality, but it might be what we need.
So far, the 2012-2013 Boston Celtics have looked pretty good, well other then tonight. We have one of the deepest rosters, on paper, in the NBA. We added plenty of pieces in the off season and look like we retooled for another run. Even though we lost #20(yeah that's exactly how I will refer to him throughout...
1st time all star? Comeback player of the year? Top 25 player in the NBA? How about all three. Jeff Green is back and his resurgence is as important to the Celtic's future as is Rondo's steady climb to become and maintain the title of the league's best playmaker. What is even more important is their connection and how they are able to make eachother better. The duo of...
Stop me if you've heard this one: Rajon Rondo has the ball at the 3 point line. Kevin Garnett sets a pick. Meanwhile, the other big sets a screen under the basket, and the Wing runs through and gets to the corner. Rondo drives then dishes to the corner, open 3. With guys like Eddie House, James Posey, and oh, just the best 3-point shooter ever, this play has been a staple of...
Well, that was unpleasant to watch. Hopefully the Celtics got that all out of their system and hopefully Doc can start defining roles a bit more so that they can get into a groove before the start of the season. Sixers fans aren't all that bad a bunch. They don't seem to have the vitriol that say Knicks fans or Heat fans or Lakers fans have. My favorite comment was the...

Jason Terry told CLNS he is ready to lead after his first game in the Garden as a Celtic. Rajon Rondo had 11 assists in extended preseason minutes Tuesday night. KG talked the state of the Celtics defense after losing to Brooklyn. Courtney Lee also made his Garden debut Tuesday night. Armond Hill was the [...]
In their second NBA preseason game the Celtics matched up against the 76ers for the first time since last years 2012 NBA Playoffs. The offseason brought all new players to both teams shifting Doc's gameplan and match-ups. One of the most notable differences was the absence of Andre Iguodala who was shipped off to Denver in a multi-player deal that brought former Lakers center...
The Celtics hit the Garden parquet for the first time this preseason. Jeff Green brought out some heat, as he wore the Nike Hyperposite in a Atomic Green/Charcoal colorway. The Nike Hyperposite is a $225 high end basketball shoe released by Nike earlier this summer. Check out The Shoe Games post about the shoes.
Rajon Rondo debuted a pair of white/gorge green/volt Nike 2012 Hyperfuse...
I took to Twitter the other night after screening The Other Dream Team and wanted to know what you, the readers/listeners readers regarded as the best starting five players, in your opinion and likes. Granted, my favorite five of all time is a bit weird. My starting five would look like this:
PG: Anfernee Hardaway
SG: Kerry Kittles
SF: Paul Pierce
PF: Tim Duncan
The Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Boston Celtics 107-75 during exhibition play Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center. The Celtics slogged their way to their third preseason loss in four outings. Paul Pierce scored a team-high 16 points on 5-of-10 shooting, but also had four turnovers. For the Sixers, Spencer Hawes put up 17 points and eight rebounds in 17:36 off the pine, while...
