The Celtics may also consider Chris Wilcox, but Johnson appears to be a more likely starter if Garnett doesn't play. ...  Johnson has done well with end-of-the-game, mop-up-duty minutes. But to play the way he did against a Chicago team that has been atop the Eastern Conference standings most of this season, was impressive."There's nothing like getting that game-day experience, and he's getting that," said Paul Pierce. "It's good to get him in there for some big games, like Chicago to where he's knocking down shots and playing well. When you do that, it creates confidence in the ball club.

Hustle and Flow... Did Rajon's shooting kill Boston's offense last night?

People (ahem, Chuck) have been getting on Rajon Rondo lately.  Some of it is warranted, some of it isn't.  The latest criticism of him came last night when he either (a) took way too many shots and disrupted the flow of the offense or (b) didn't take enough shots in the 4th quarter and disrupted the flow of the offense.   So went back and looked at every one of his 27...

Celtics collapse against another bad team

Well folks, we might be able to point to this game as the end of the new Big 3 era.  Because effort and execution get no worse than this.  The Celtics let the Pistons hang around for 3 quarters and then they crapped themselves as they got out-scored 25-16 in the fourth quarter.... leading to a 98-88 loss to the Detroit Pistons. Yeah, those Pistons. Paul Pierce had a game so...

Comments from the other side - Pistons 2/15

 Another team that is set on tanking and then ends up cheering to beat the Celtics.  It's amazing how much beating the Celtics means to most teams.  There's a lot of Celtics hate out there.  And more fans who hate the players on their own team.  And, of course, more hate for the Celtics announcers.  I know the comments are more fun when we win, but there are still some...
