Boston Celtics (2-0) vs Sacramento Kings (1-3)

Thomas and Mack Center, Las Vegas, NVGame Thread
As a testament to the play of the Celtics' team, the game will be shown live on NBA-TV. Originally, the schedule was for this game to be shown on tape delay at 3:00 AM. Instead, they moved this one to be shown live and the Cavs/Timberwolves game has been moved to the 3 AM slot. Also, for those who get CSNNE, you will have the treat of having the game televised by the Celtics announcers on that channel as well.
The Celtics will try to keep their unbeaten record in Vegas alive as they face a Kings squad that hasn't had much success this week. Their only win came against the winless Lakers (why does it feel so good to say those words together? "winless Lakers") The Kings are playing in their final Vegas team and would love to salvage a 2-3 record for the week. The Celtics are going to need to play...

Doc Rivers spoke to the media before the Celtics-Kings game yesterday and touched on a number of topics. One was the status of Paul Pierce’s knee.
“He’ll be fine,” Doc said. ”With his injury, he had to rest it. He should not have been playing, to be healthy. The only way to be healthy is rest. So, he’ll be fine.”
It’s just amazing to think at what kind...
We've all, including Greg Stiemsma himself, have been waiting for Minnesota to get their offers all straight and make an offer to the Celtics' center. Now we learn from ESPN Boston that Greg has gotten an offer that is larger than the qualifying offer of $1.05 million tendered by the Celtics.
Restricted free agent center Greg Stiemsma has received an offer from a new...
The rebuilding process between championships took more than two decades the last time the Celtics did it. With their moves this offseason, the Celtics have set themselves up for a much shorter drought, if it can even be called that. One of the hardest things for an NBA executive to do is to make his team younger while staying in championship contention. With the Celtics' anticipated...
The Celtics’ hope to find a quality sharp-shooting two guard to help replace Ray Allen and fill in for Avery Bradley as he recovers from shoulder surgery just got a little bleaker as two of Danny Ainge’s top free agent targets recently came off the market for the C’s. On Monday night OJ Mayo, [...]
We heard recently that Rondo was in Paris for the World Basketball Festival here's a short interview he gave with the french media.
Notably Rondo thinks this team will have good chemistry. He seems excited that Jason Terry is on the team and that a lot of players from last year are returning.
I also thought Rondo's response was funny when the french reporter asked if...
Watch this video and tell me you aren't excited about having Courtney Lee on the Celtics? Rondo will bring out the best in his game. Got to give Ainge and Doc credit on this one.

“I had a fantastic time in Boston, an unbelievable sports town, fans and organization. But it wasn’t necessarily the best fit basketball wise. Your comfort level is everything.
Sometimes when you’re asked not to worry about some of the stronger parts of your game, which is scoring, and only [focus on] defense, that’s difficult to do.”
Yeah, and you were also...

It’s been a while since I posted some pics & GIFs. Fortunately, my buddy HTT has put together a few from last night’s C’s-Bulls Summer League game in Vegas. The Celtics’ squad won again, 79-74 behind E’Twaun Moore’s 25 points. Here are a few GIFs from the game..
Courtney Lee is close to joining the Celtics
The Celtics needed one more veteran shooting guard to round out their roster and it looks as if they got him. They are currently finalizing a deal with the Houston Rockets to acquire Courtney Lee for JuJuan Johnson, E’Twaun Moore and Sean Williams in addition to a second round pick.
I like this deal because the Celtics barely gave up...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
It’s not like the Celtics don’t want to wrap up their roster renovation, it’s just that free agent guard Courtney Lee wisely listened to the advice of his agent, Dan Fegan, who told him to be patient...
Thomas Robinson is shooting just 32 percent (16 of 50) through four summer league games with the Kings.

Further healing themselves from the loss of Ray Allen, the Celtics stole sharpshooting wing Courtney Lee from the Houston Rockets on Thursday, further enhancing the profile on what has been a successful summer.
One of the great parts of the NBA Summer League is that reporters get to ask NBA players crazy questions that they normally wouldn't get to ask.Recently, Sacramento Kings forward Carl Landry was asked about the one television show that he would love to be stuck in for a week and he went with the one that Steve Harvey hosts:
