Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
The Celtics have lost, again. Tonight's 92-86 loss I Portland wasn't too hard to watch, but there were times that I got frustrated. Going into this one I kinda knew that they were gonna lose, but I still had to watch the game. They went down with a fight. But tonight, things just didn't work out.
Tonight's USOTN goes to the performance of Brandon Bass. This season, Bass hasn't scored a ton, but tonight was different. Bass scored 11 points on 5/10 shooting. I don't expect this to happen a ton, but I'll still enjoy this one time. Thanks for the effort, Brandon.
Bass's 11 points was tied for third on the team. Tying with him was Green who also had 11. Besting him was KG who had 20 and Pierce who had 23. The Celtics next game will be tomorrow night in Utah. It will be the last of their current road trip.

Silent but deadly
The Portland Trail Blazers have been known to make a splash at the NBA trade deadline. In 2010, they acquired Marcus Camby, in 2011, they complete a lopsided trade for Gerald Wallace and in 2012, they started from scratch, ridding themselves of Wallace, Camby, Greg Oden and then-head coach Nate McMillan.
This time around, the team stayed relatively quiet, yet...
The Blazers had lost seven straight going into tonight’s game, but Wesley freakin’ Matthews made sure that’s where the streak would end. The C’s got big games out of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, but those two didn’t get a ton of help. They drop a very winnable game 92-86.
The Truth came to play. After early foul trouble, Pierce carried the Celtics and...
It's hard to say where these guys are heading.
I have no idea what to make of this team at the moment. Through the first half of the season Boston lost a lot of games to opponents with inferior talent. I remember thinking on many occasions that the C's couldn't beat any quick young teams, regardless of how bad their players were. However, my outlook remained positive...
rajon Rajon Rondo has a lot of free time these days. While he waits for the torn ACL in his right knee to heal, the Celtics point guard is chasing his second love: Demolishing kids at board games.
Rondo is a maniacal Connect Four player, according to a profile by Lee Jenkins in this week’s Sports Illustrated, as an unfortunate child in Dorchester, Mass., discovered. The story relays...
Former Louisville star Terrence Williams is in day six of his 10-day contract with the Boston Celtics. Last Thursday, the final day that NBA teams are allowed to make trades, Boston sent center Jason Collins and the expiring contract of shooting guard Leandro Barbosa to the Washington Wizards in exchange for shooting guard Jordan Crawford. Considering Williams and Crawford are both...
The Celtics defense was there but they missed too many shots. They need to quit with the long jumpers and go to the basket. Hopefully they will do it more when the new guys (including a yet to be named big man) get acclimated. The officiating wasn't all that bad. They let a lot of stuff go, but they let it go both ways. My favorites are in bold. What are yours...
Here’s another crazy thing that you would have never thought Rajon Rondo would do, but could totally imagine doing.
From SB Nation:
The Celtics didn’t want to change Rondo when he arrived, but they didn’t want to him either. So at charity foundations he perched behind a folding table where he could avoid the back-slapping, baby-hugging and other standard forms of celebrity...
The young guns, specifically Avery Bradley, kept the C’s in this one, and the vets finished it off. Despite weary legs and some lapses in defense, Boston gets a gutsy 110-107 win in OT in Utah. Paul Pierce took the game over late, hitting clutch shot after clutch shot in the 4th and the OT. Pierce was 3 of 3 in overtime, and 5 of 9 for 55% in the 4th & OT. His partner in...
I don't know about you guys, but I am quickly moving on from tonight's loss in Portland. In my opinion, it was a loss that was bound to happen. I could care less about it. Tomorrow night they will visit the Jazz in the final game of their road trip. Here are the five things they must do to win in Utah:
5. HAVE BRADLEY GET HOT:
Avery Bradley has slowly gotten more and more...
Boston got back on the right track last night, getting their first win in Phoenix since 2009. Jeff Green led the way w/31 points as the C’s trounced the Suns 113-88.
The next stop on the Celtics west coast trip is Portland. Celts-Blazers tips-off at 9pm EST tomorrow night. Check out some pics & GIFs from last night’s win via HoopChina…
The Boston Celtics sat Kevin Garnett Saturday and still easily defeated the Phoenix Suns -- thanks to Jeff Green.
The fifth-year forward dominated, making 11-of-14 shots, including three 3-pointers, for 31 points. He added a full stat line of seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and five blocks in 39 minutes. It was a dominant performance, but one that we've come to expect...

The Boston Celtics are an old team. That doesn't mean they're a bad team. They just need more rest than the young players in the league might. Doc Rivers knows this. So rather than focus on a playoff seed, he is focusing on the best times to rest his players.According to Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston, Rivers is planning out the times when he will rest Kevin Garnett...
