Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
Tonight's 110-106 loss to the Grizzlies was filled with ups and downs. The Celtics got off to nice start, but slipped in the second and third quarters. Their fourth quarter contained a rally that didn't start until about the 6:00 mark. Had it started earlier, they definitely would've won. But it didn't. What's done is done.
Tonight's USOTN easily goes to the performance of Jordan Crawford. Wow, this guy had himself a hell of a game. From beginning to end, this guy played great. His 21 points was second on the team to Paul Pierce, who had 26. Now this is the guy that they should've gotten from Washington.
Like I said earlier, this was a good loss. I am almost happy with them right now. Sometimes things just don't go our way. Tonight was definitely one of those times. Good night.

Jason Terry is confident that the Celtics will meet the Heat in the playoffs and that there will be "fireworks." He had more to say.
Uh oh. We have been here before, and quite frankly it makes me want to crawl under a rock and hide from the light of day. This news came out today via the Boston Globe in regards to Kevin Garnett:Coach Doc Rivers was unsure when Garnett sustained the injury. Garnett missed two games because of a strained left adductor muscle and the flu, but returned for two games, combining...

Summing up the chaos here in Memphis...Kevin Garnett, Courtney Lee and Marc Gasol all out. Zach Randolph (alarm clock issue) won't start.

There obviously has not been much to cheer about this week for Celtics fans. But last night, we got to see yet another vicious throw down by one of the C’s. This time, it was Avery Bradley. Check out his flush on Memphis’ Ed Davis in video, GIF & picture format. Photos courtesy of HoopChina.
We already knew that there was a good chance Courtney Lee would be out tonight, but now we find out KG is also hurt. From the Celtics’ official Twitter:
Kevin Garnett and Courtney Lee are both out tonight with sprained left ankles.

No word on how KG hurt his ankle. Multiple media reporting he will have an MRI back in Boston on Monday...
Celtics (58-18) vs. Cleveland (34-43)

The Celtics stumbled, 109-105, in front of a sellout crowd of 19,548 in Cleveland against the suddenly hot Cavaliers.
The win marked the eighth straight for the Cavs, a team facing a future of uncertainty. The only coach and general manager the team had ever known, Bill Fitch, now coached the league-best Boston...
Former Celtics' guard Ray Williams has died at age 58. He was a combo guard brought on board to help with the Celtics' depth in 1985.

Our condolences go out to the Williams' family from everyone at Celticslife.
Just a few random thoughts for tonight's post game wrap up. First, KG's injury is troubling. He didn't seem to injure the foot in the game but they said he was walking gingerly afterwards. It is being described as a foot injury rather than an ankle injury. And the fact that they are going to take an MRI makes it even more worrisome. I remember back in that...
I was very surprised to see how few Grizzlies fans were posting on the boards. Maybe some of the usual posters were at the game but given the fact that there were also plenty of Celtics fans at the game and how successful the Grizz have been, you would think there would be more fans posting. I had to laugh at the reaction to Tony's foul on the 3 at the end. I recall so...
Although it is unclear the exact amount of time Kevin Garnett will need to recover from an injured left foot, according to Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston, KG is expected to miss 4-5 games. Garnett, who missed Saturday's game at Memphis, underwent an MRI on an injured left foot, and initial results did not alarm the team. While he is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's visit from...
