As the dog days of summer arrest us and we eagerly await the dawn of a new season, we here at Celtics Town would like to take a look back at Boston’s 2011-12 season and recap some of the most memorable games. Honorable Mention: Boston Celtics (29-22) vs. Minnesota Timberwolves (25-28)Date: March 30, 2012Location: Target Center, Minneapolis, MNFinal Score: 100-79Key Players: Kevin Garnett (24 points, 10 rebounds), Paul Pierce (21 points, 9 rebounds)Top Plays: 1:01 (Rondo alley-oop to Garnett), 1:27 (Brandon Bass, drive and vicious slam)Rundown: The C’s, who had been rolling since the All-Star break, took down the Timberwolves easily. The Wolves were without rookie phenom Ricky Rubio and forward Michael Beasley, although many within the Timberwolves organization may have considered the latter a plus.

Celtics Well Represented at the Olympics

There have been several articles on the USA basketball team and the fact that there are no Celtics on the team. The Celtics' stars were pretty much beat up at the end of last season and even if one of them wanted play for team USA, they needed time to heal and  I just don't see how they would have been able to.

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...
