Found July 31, 2012 on Celtics Town:
Date: May 21, 2012Location: TD Banknorth Garden, Boston MAFinal Score: 101-85Key Players: Brandon Bass (9-13 from the field), Rajon Rondo (13 points, 14 assists)Top Plays: 0:16 (Rondo look-away and pass inside to Stiemsma for the dunk), 1:54 (Celtics overpass, but the ball ends up in Bass’s hands for a massive slam)Rundown: Brandon Bass, guys. When he gets hot, he gets hot like cement on a summer day. Bass torched the 76ers in the third quarter, scoring 18 (!!!) of his 27 points. Bass’s mid-range game can be silky smooth when he is hitting shots, but my favorite part of his game is when he goes up for a two handed slam and attempts to rip the rim off the backboard with both hands, like the backboard just insulted his mother and the rim is an appendage. Violent dunks are entertaining, especially in the playoffs, and Bass delivered them frequently.But though Bass was excellent, especially in the second half, it was Rondo who, as he had done all series, ran the floor, directed traff...

And I doubt that USA basketball was interested in recruiting...

No News is Good News

In posting the links the past few days, I've noticed that there hasn't been any Celtics news in the Boston media. The blogs still keep churning out posts, but as far as NESN, CSNNE, the Globe and Herald, we have entered that portion of the off season where we can go several days without any real news from the team. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, however. Instead...

Doc Rivers Shoulders Blame for Ray Allen Leaving, Admits Initially Being 'Pissed'
