It's hard to say where these guys are heading.
I have no idea what to make of this team at the moment. Through the first half of the season Boston lost a lot of games to opponents with inferior talent. I remember thinking on many occasions that the C's couldn't beat any quick young teams, regardless of how bad their players were. However, my outlook remained positive because the postseason is a whole different animal. The game slows down, every team plays defense, and veteran superstars take over. This season's underachieving Celtics were still a team of battle tested warriors capable of making a playoff run.
Now the tables have completely turned. The Boston squad we saw earn their largest margin of victory of the season (on the road against a Western Conference opponent, their first of the year no less) yesterday was exactly the type of team that the Celtics used to fall to; a bunch of average and no name players winning by simply running and out-hustling th...

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.
But the way the 25-year-old has played in two games thus far for the Celtics — averaging 5.5 points, 3 rebounds, and 3 assists in 18.5 minutes — he is making a strong case to stay...
Jeff Green has been considered sort of a poison pill since Danny shockingly traded Kendrick Perkins for him. That move seemingly ripped the heart out of the team and ultimately sent the them into a tailspin. To make matters worse "Uncle Jeff's" heart ailment resulted in him sitting out all of the 2012 season. The following season saw Danny Ainge give him a 36 million...
Former Louisville star Terrence Williams is in day six of his 10-day contract with the Boston Celtics. Last Thursday, the final day that NBA teams are allowed to make trades, Boston sent center Jason Collins and the expiring contract of shooting guard Leandro Barbosa to the Washington Wizards in exchange for shooting guard Jordan Crawford. Considering Williams and Crawford are both...
Celtics fans, enjoy this utterly dominant performance by Jeff Green.
#8 delivered his best game as a Celtic, compiling 31 points on a scorching hot 11-14 shooting with 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, and FIVE BLOCKS. Most impressive to me, he did not even dunk the ball, instead showing off the full arsenal by slashing, facilitating, and knocking down shots from long range to...
What Jeff Green did to the Suns tonight wasn’t nice at all. Let’s just say Doc picked the right game to rest KG and start Jeff. The Suns had NO answers for Green as he dropped 31 on 11 of 14 shooting in a 113-88 win. And that was just the start. Let’s get to it…
Never before has this section been more appropriately named. Jeff Green **** on the Suns tonight...
Led by Jeff Green's 31 points, the Boston Celtics cruised to a 25 point victory over the Phoenix Suns on Friday night. Highlights above, box score below.
Boston Celtics 113, Phoenix Suns 88 - FINAL - February 22, 2013
Boston Celtics (29-26)
The Boston Celtics sat Kevin Garnett Saturday and still easily defeated the Phoenix Suns -- thanks to Jeff Green.
The fifth-year forward dominated, making 11-of-14 shots, including three 3-pointers, for 31 points. He added a full stat line of seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and five blocks in 39 minutes. It was a dominant performance, but one that we've come to expect...
PHOENIX (AP) -- Jeff Green gave Boston a sensational performance in his first start in nearly two years.
Green scored a season-high 31 points on 11-of-14 shooting and the short-handed Celtics routed the Phoenix Suns 113-88 on Friday night.
"I didn't have a different mindset," said Green, who missed last season following heart surgery to correct an aortic aneurysm...
Boston got back on the right track last night, getting their first win in Phoenix since 2009. Jeff Green led the way w/31 points as the C’s trounced the Suns 113-88.
The next stop on the Celtics west coast trip is Portland. Celts-Blazers tips-off at 9pm EST tomorrow night. Check out some pics & GIFs from last night’s win via HoopChina…
Kevin Garnett sat out Friday night (DNP – old and tired) and Jeff Green finally got his chance to start. Doing the best KG impression he could muster, he tore up Los Suns with a season-high 31 points and added 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals and 5 blocks. Oh, hello there! What did you say your name was? I don’t believe we’ve met. They traded you for who–Kendrick Perkins...
The Boston Celtics nearly stole a win against the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday night. But missed shots and poor offensive rebounding in the end led to a 92-86 loss, which coach Doc Rivers called a "my bad" game afterwards.

The Blazers had lost seven straight going into tonight’s game, but Wesley freakin’ Matthews made sure that’s where the streak would end. The C’s got big games out of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, but those two didn’t get a ton of help. They drop a very winnable game 92-86.
The Truth came to play. After early foul trouble, Pierce carried the Celtics and...
The Celtics players can exhale now that the trade deadline has past with barely a blip on the radar screen. Boston has made some minor moves to add to their guard core, but still failed to address the donut hole in the middle. The one thing that makes me wander what the "#@#$", Doc Rivers and Danny have in mind for the race to the playoffs was the trade of Jason Collins...
