Doc Rivers may go deeper into his bench at TD Garden - Knicks vs Celtics, Game 3

In games 1 and 2 of the NBA 1st Round Playoffs, Doc Rivers has been hesitant to play deep into his bench. Playing a confusing 8-man rotation that, in game 1, didn't include any big men, Doc has said he expects a lift from his role players now that the Celtics have returned to Boston. We can expect that Doc may dig deeper into his bench. In a report issued by Jay King/Mass Live...

Hip pointer won’t keep KG out of Game 3

Rivers: Garnett to play in Game 3

Kevin Garnett walked over to the Boston bench, nursing a sore hip and Celtics coach Doc Rivers asked repeatedly if his big man needed a break. It was going to take more than that to knock Garnett out of the playoffs. ''He's good. He's good to go,'' Rivers said Wednesday during a conference call with reporters. ''He'll practice tomorrow, and he...

Your Morning Dump… Where Jordan Crawford could get more minutes tonight

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. “I thought he was good,” Rivers said. “He stayed in his lane, let’s put it that way. He didn’t go outside of it.

Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via Getty Images The Boston Celtics have had a string of games where consistency is productive, but then there is that inconsistency, like the recent second half complications.

Comments from the Other Side - Knicks Game 2 4/23

Unlike a lot of people, after last night's loss, I'm not ready to bury the Celtics just yet.  They are down 0-2 but they are going home, where they play much better.   If they can win their home games, it's tied 2-2 and then they just need to steal one game out of the 2 left in NY.  I agree with Doc that the fouls on KG were horrendous and even the Knicks fans recognized...

Celtics Seeking Revenge in Game 2

After the sloppy play featured in the second half of the series opener, Paul Pierce and the Boston Celtics will look to redeem themselves in Game 2 this evening at MSG.
