This has been a crazy last month of basketball for us Boston Celtic' fans, a lot of ups and downs and inconsistency. The writers from Celticslife weigh in. We are doing a 4 on 5 today (like when we used to have to do with Perkins on our team offensively), let's see how we produce.
1. We have just lost four games in a row that we should have won, where are we now?
Terry P: We are what our record says we are, an up and down team. There are times when I see this team, and think "greatness" and there are times when I see "first round sweep". How do we score 103 points against the Heat but then only score 86 against the Hornets? Too much inconsistency. I hope we settle things once playoff time hits
Jun P: We are where we always were: a scrappy underdog. With Rondo/Sullinger/Barbosa gone, this team just isn't that talented. The influx of wins that happened after Rondo went down didn't change that. This team plays amazing defense, but the offense stil...

Uh oh. We have been here before, and quite frankly it makes me want to crawl under a rock and hide from the light of day. This news came out today via the Boston Globe in regards to Kevin Garnett:Coach Doc Rivers was unsure when Garnett sustained the injury. Garnett missed two games because of a strained left adductor muscle and the flu, but returned for two games, combining...
Last week I voiced my displeasure with the (over) reaction from fans, media and players to big guys (DeAndre Jordan, LeBron James) dunking over guards (Brandon Knight, Jason Terry).
If you are 6-10 inches taller and 50-80 pounds heavier than a man, you should be able to dunk on, over and through him.
Avery Bradley threw a hefty counter punch for all the guards when he drove the lane...
Highlights from the Celtics loss to the Knicks Tuesday night above. Celtics box score below.
Boston Celtics forward Chris Wilcox will be making a return appearance to the Celtics Late Night Show this coming Thursday at 7 pm, EST. Wilcox, who is playing his second season as a member of the Boston Celtics, appeared on the show just before the start of the 2012-2013 season and will be checking back in with Nick Gelso and Brandon Paul (B-Paul) on Thursday. Wilcox is currently...
Tonight's game was an absolute waste. I saw no bright spots tonight. The Celtics didn't put much effort and deserved to lose. As bad as they've played lately, the Knicks have played much worse. I have to idea how they managed to lose this one.
Tonight's USOTN goes to the fact that the Knicks shot 29 more shots than the Celtics. The C's shot just 61 shots while...
The Celtics snapped their five game losing skid this evening and they did so in dramatic fashion as Jeff Green converted on a last second lay-up to secure a victory for Boston. Other than Green's big night, the rest of the rotation was either hit or miss. Four guys finished with over 10 points but five of them scored 6 or lower. A win at Cleveland isn't anything to write...
The Boston Celtics dropped their fifth straight game with a loss at home to the New York Knicks. J.R. Smith scored 32 and Carmelo added 29 as the Celtics got thrashed. The Knicks outscored the Celtics 30-20 in the second quarter and that was pretty much it. Another awful loss for the C’s and this one game at home to a Knicks team without Tyson Chandler (or anything remotely resembling...
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...
Avery Bradley's shot selection leaves something to be desired.When I play pick-up ball, my teammates usually know me well enough to run an easy play for me. When everybody is worn down and we just need an easy basket, I’ll check the ball at the top of the key, and a teammate will come up and stand in front of my defender. I hand them the ball, they hand it back, I take a step...
Well that was ugly.
The Celtics have now lost five straight, falling 100-85 to the Knicks.
You knew you were in for a gem of a game when it took three minutes for either team to score the first bucket. The rest of the game was not much prettier and it could be because there just wasn't enough talent on the court.
The list of players who weren't suiting up for this game...
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...
