The Celtics barely missed Rondo as they routed the Trailblazers 96-78. Strong performances by Jeff Green, Jason Terry, Courtney Lee, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett gave Celtics fans hope that they can play without their floor general. Jared Weiss of CLNS Radio recaps the game in tonight’s edition of “Three at the Buzzer”. Filmed and [...]

Welcome to 35, Mr. Pierce.
I cringe when the leg buckles against the Magic. Pierce is lucky he didn’t sustain a major injury.
After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value.

I bet when you see 3 green arrows come up for Courtney Lee, you expect a siren to go off and coins to come pouring out of your monitor somehow. I’m going to look past a few of the misses because as we’ve...

The Celtics pasted the Portland Trailblazers at TD Garden tonight, 96-78. Courtney Lee and Jeff Green both stepped-up, and Kevin Garnett was vintage KG. He scored his 10 points on a variety of bank shots, fadeaways and sweet jumpers. Ticket also finished with 5 boards & 4 assists in 23 minutes. Jeff Green was aggressive from the jump and led the C’s with...
Kevin Garnett did an interview on WEEI's Mut and Merloni show this afternoon, with last night's "brawl" obviously being the main topic of conversation. But he also gave us a nice quote to laugh at in the never ending "we don't talk to Ray Allen anymore" genre. From The Boston Globe's Gary Dzen:
In a bit of a lighter moment, Garnett was asked...
Tweet A couple of days ago Paul Pierce’s legs buckled under him courtesy of Orlando Magic point guard Jameer Nelson. Tonight against the Brooklyn Nets the result wasn’t quite as bad, but Pierce once again found himself on floor. This time it was Joe Johnson channeling his inner Jamal Crawford with a super low [...]

KG: "It was just a hard foul... We all back each other up here... We have to protect each other. We're a family around here."

February 22nd, 2012 – The Boston Celtics lose to the Oklahoma City Thunder 119-104 dropping their record to 15-17. Even the most ardent members of Celtics Nation declare the “window” shut for the team. The break-up of the Big Three seems inevitable as Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and maybe even Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett [...]
Rajon Rondo is not backing down from his actions in Wednesday’s loss to the Nets.
After taking offense to a hard foul by Kris Humphries on Kevin Garnett, Rondo was ejected from the game and could face a suspension from the league for his actions. However, before practice on Thursday, the Celtics point guard did not seem to show much remorse for how things had played out.
Minnesota Timberwolves star Kevin Love is one of the smartest players in the league and that was on display in a game against Golden State. During the third quarter of that game Love found himself caught in midair trying to shot a jump shot. So instead of firing up a bad shot Love fired a pass off the back of teammate Greg Steimsma. Love then got the ball back and drew a foul on...
First of all this sets up a pretty heated Christmas Day game right off the bat. It should get some good ratings. You have to wonder if the league wanted to set up a rivalry between these two teams for ratings purposes. Yes, I know I'm getting into tinfoil hat areas here, but I can't help but wonder.

8 a.m. ET: In all likelihood, no team wants to get back on the court more than the Portland Trail Blazers.
The Blazers became the first team to fall to the Washington Wizards this season when they dropped an 84-82 decision to Nene and company on Wednesday. Once a regular playoff participant, the Blazers have missed out on the postseason the last two years and are off to a disappointing...
There are a lot of CSNNE reporters I like. Michael Felger in not one of them. He's openly stated he doesn't like the Celtics or the NBA, yet CSNNE gives him a major platform to discuss the NBA. Yesterday he was going off on how KG ran away from Gerald Wallace and would lose a fight to any hockey player.
"I would take, almost literally, anyone in the NHL over Kevin Garnett...
Kris Humphries (3/4/0 with 2 blocks) fouled Kevin Garnett (16/10/1) somewhat hard (his flopping made it look worse than it was). Rajon Rondo (6/1/3 with 2 steals) took exception to the contact, and since NBA players are mature, emotionally well-adjusted individuals, a brawl ensued, resulting in the ejection of Humpy and Rondo. Word has it a towel boy was punched in the face as the...
The Celtics fell to 8-7 in the season after dropping a 95-83 game to the Brooklyn Nets. The game seemed to be ian afterthought, though, after a brawl broke out between Rajon Rondo and Kris Humphreis. Rondo shoved Humphreis into the stands after he fouled Kevin Garnett. Both players along with Gerald Wallace were ejected. [...]
