Found October 06, 2012 on Celtics Town:
We’ve made several jokes about how the Celtics continue to use phrases like “tear their heads off” or “kill if we have to” in reference to their opponents. We’ve also observed that, as motivation, Doc keeps showing the team clips of last year’s Eastern Conference Finals as a way to get extra fire burning in the stomachs of both the vets and the newcomers.I always thought it was a bit of showmanship, like, “Hey, look how stoked we are about this season. You should be too.” But, um, if Doc has been showing anything like this video to his players, well…Pardon me a second. I’m going to go tear someone’s head off.(Hat tip to Red’s Army)

Jeff Green Shows Ability to Lead Second Unit and Other Impressions from Celtics' Loss in Istanbul

These Turkish teams are not to be taken lightly. Despite a warning from Dionte Christmas, an alumnus of the Turkish Basketball League, that Fenerbahce Ulker would be no pushover, the Celtics never seemed able to get in rhythm on Friday. Boston's first exhibition foe of the 2012-13 season controlled the pace of the game, got to the free throw line more effectively and protected...

Celtics defense suffocates EA7 Milano, 105-75

It was a close game in the first quarter despite Rajon Rondo's brilliant 17 points on 7-for-7 shooting in the opening frame. Then the Celtics defense kicked in, they held the Italians to 4-of-19 shooting in that second quarter and that was pretty much the story of the game. Rajon Rondo's 17 ended up tying for the team lead with Jeff Green. Paul Pierce added 14 on 4-of...

Darko Milicic Could Bring Depth to Front Line and Other Impressions From Celtics' Win in Milan

Cross Italy off the list of countries that the Celtics hope never receive NBA expansion franchises. Turkey rocketed to the top of that list Friday, when Fenerbahce Ulker led most of the way before handing the Celtics a confounding loss in the exhibition opener. Another stinker against AC Emporio Armani Milano on Sunday might have raised some serious doubts as to whether this team...

Rondo Cookies One of Few Sweet Things for Rajon Rondo, Celtics in Turkey (Photo)

Rajon Rondo makes some sweet moves with the basketball, but even a behind-the-back pass may not sweeter than the Rondo cookies reportedly found in the media room at Ulker Sports Arena in Istanbul.
