Found March 24, 2013 on Celtics Life:
Many fans are probably down on the Celtics after losing to the Grizzlies last night. All about perspective though. The Grizzlies have become an upper echelon team the past couple years and we were playing in their house. We had just played the night before in Dallas and had to travel to Memphis. C's had no KG, no Courtney Lee, and of course no Rondo, Sully, and Barbosa. They only lost by two. You might not like the losing streak, but a win last night would have been a huge upset. Here are the highlights from last night for Jordan Crawford and Paul Pierce, who both put up big scoring nights, courtesy of OfficialCelticsHD.

Comments from the Other Side - Grizzlies 3/23

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...

Underrated Stat of the Night - Grizzlies 3/23

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.

Tonight's USOTN easily goes to...

Celtics Road Woes Continue with 110-106 Loss to the Grizzlies

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...

Celtics Will Be Minus Kevin Garnett For Next Two Weeks

Kevin Garnett (left) cannot bear to watch his team’s lackluster play while Paul Pierce (right) looks on. The Boston Celtics are in the midst of a four game losing streak and just came off a winless road trip through New Orleans, Dallas, and Memphis. The news got worse today when Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge announced that Kevin Garnett will be out for...

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...

You have Gasol to be kidding me!!

Well I’m sure most of you have heard by now that we have lost Marc Gasol to a tear of the abdomen. Who knew he had abs? More sit-ups this offseason Marc! So right as we get one Gasol brother back from injury, we lose the other, and it couldn’t have come at a worse time with playoffs going currently going on. Marc has been labeled “out indefinitely”. Personally, I hate that...
