Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
Tonight featured another tough loss for the Celtics. The final score: Mavs 104, Celtics 94. I feel too upset to be mad right now. Despite putting up a decent effort, the Celtics still lost to a below .500 team. This is ridiculous.
Tonight's USOTN goes to the performance of Jordan Crawford. Unlike most players on the team, Crawford actually played well. He had a solid 9 points on 3/11 shooting. I guess the shooting still needs some work, but I'm not too upset. He still had a nice game.
Like I said, this one was disappointing. They weren't playing that tough of an opponent. They need to win these kinda games. But like I said a few nights ago, they don't want to put up the effort. They expect to win every game with minimum effort.
BEST OF MAXIM

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.
Not good. Celtics are down two starters for tonight's match-up with the Grizzlies. From Sean Grande's twitter.
Official now....Kevin Garnett and Courtney Lee both out for the Celtics tonight.KG (foot) will have an MRI back in Boston.

KG will have an MRI back in Boston, but hopefully it's not serious as his loss would...
I like how Bradley just handles his business and runs back on defense. No need to show up Davis with extended mean mugging after the dunk. And unlike DeAndre Jordan and LeBron James dunking on MUCH smaller players, here we have Bradley, who's not much taller than 6 feet, dunking on a legit 6'10" big man. Much more impressive.

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

Garnett did not leave the Mavs game with any...
GOT YOUR BACK
Mark Cuban defended his former player, Jason Terry, who has been ridiculed for being fiercely dunked on by LeBron James.
Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett both had big games last night for the Celtics. Unfortunately the rest of the roster didn't. Here are the highlights from Pierce's 28 point, 5 assist performance and KG's 20 point, 6 rebound return.

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...
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...
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.
You can find out more on what Ray was up to here.
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...
Jason Terry was uninspiring in his return to Dallas.Eight-point leads are such a tease.On a night when most people were more interested in the college basketball games on TV, the Celtics looked equally uninterested in the proceedings. Every time Boston went on a run and cut the lead to six, eight or ten points, the Mavericks responded with a 3-pointer or a pair of baskets to push...

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...
