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. “The difference between 2009 and today is Kevin needed surgery in 2009. It was inevitable,” Ainge said. “But the thought was that if he gets surgery, he’s done for the year, or can he play until the end of the year and then get surgery at the end of the year? And there was hope that that could happen, that he would be able to play. And it was just inevitable surgery. And he wasn’t going to damage it anymore, it was a chip or a fragment behind his knee that needed to be removed. “And so right now that’s not the case with KG. I don’t think that surgery is inevitable or we need to get through the year and he’s going to go in for surgery right after the year. That’s the difference between (2009) and now. He has inflammation in the foot. There’s soreness, there was swelling — the swelling is going down — and we think two

Shavlik speaks, and wins our hearts all over again

Shavlik Randolph took a break from healing the blind and turning water into wine to join the NBA on NBC show with Hickman & Gilroy this morning. The resulting 12 minutes was the type of “aw shucks, I’m just doing my job” kind of humbleness that just makes you want to introduce him to your daughter. The best example is when he was asked about his personal journey.  We all...

Your Morning Dump… Where the C’s hope to have a green Easter Egg in Shavlik Randolph

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 idea that ShavlikRandolph would have such an impact seemed far-fetched last month when the 6-foot-10-inch forward joined the team after playing in China. After all, Randolph only became a Celtic to help...

Do we need more Shavlik?

For pretty much as long as I can remember, one of the Celtics biggest weaknesses has been rebounding.  Last night Shavlik Randolph pulled down 13 boards in 22 minutes.  An amazing 7 of them were of the offensive variety; for comparison in the win at Cleveland on Wednesday the C's as a team had a total of 2 offensive rebounds.  Here's what Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston...

Guess who's back: Brandon "The Bee" Bass

I don't know how many times I've jinxed things this season: I've written a post praising Jeff Green's preseason performance and he struggled for the next 3 months, I've praised Leandro Barbosa and he struggled to get minutes for an extended period only to get injured later, I've talked about our chances to steal the 3rd seed from the Knickerbockers and we...

Recap: Shavlik says “Get on my back boys”

If I told you during the first part of the season that there would be a game which the Celtics were lead to victory by Jeff Green and Shavlik Randolph, you may have just punched me in the teeth. I would have lost all credibility as a writer, and I’d have been blacklisted by the writing community to authoring only preschool level picture books. But that is exactly what happened...

Celitcs Step Their Game Up

Celtics 118, Hawks 107 Have the Celtics found a center? As Shavlik Randolph, a 6-foot-10-inch big man who was playing in China before Jared Sullinger’s injury forced the C’s to bring in some help, dominated the Hawks (40-33) front line for periods of Friday night’s win, Mike Gorman had to ask that question. In the midst of his usual play-by-play duties, Gorman and his partner...

Jason Terry, Shavlik Randolph Become Latest Celtics to Break Out at Opportune Time

BOSTON — Courtney Lee, limited to six minutes of playing time in his first game back from a sprained ankle, hopped up exuberantly. Chris Wilcox, mostly confined to the bench after starting the game at center, waved his towel enthusiastically. Rajon Rondo, back on the bench for the first time in two months, clapped in his sportcoat. All along the bench, the Celtics were having a...

Celtics-Cavaliers Live: Shavlik Randolph, Boston’s Second Unit Put Distance in Lead

Second quarter, 5:26, Celtics 36-30: The Cavs are an awful team shooting-wise, but even they can hit point-blank layups (most of the time). The Celtics gave up two layups to Gee and a baby hook by Speights, who was fouled the next time he touched the ball, to give the Cavs a 7-1 run spurred by the two best shots in the game — layups and free throws. Second quarter, 7:41, Celtics...

Photo Gallery: Celtics-Hawks

Paul Pierce’s triple-double of 20, 10 & 10 along with new fan favorite Shavlik Randolph’s 13 boards helped Boston get a 118-107 win over the Hawks last night. C’s are off today and meet up with the Knicks tomorrow night in NYC. Tip-off at MSG is set for 7:30pm EST. Check out some pics & GIFs from last night via Hoop China…

Comments from the Other Side - Hawks 3/29

Great game by the Celtics.  With both teams missing starting centers, they couldn't use Horford being out as an excuse.   As much as they complained about the officiating, the fact is that they got more free throws than the Celtics.  The refs let a lot of stuff go both ways. It's nice to know that they now know who Shavlik Randolph is.     Enjoy today's comments...

Boston Celtics 93 - Cleveland Cavaliers 92 highlights and box score

5 Things Celtics must do to win tonight - Hawks 3/29

Well, tonight's game against Atlanta will be critical. If they lose, they lose a lot more than a game. They lose hope. They can't remain the 7 seed for much longer. Here are tonight's five things: 5. DON'T LET BRADLEY SHOOT: I can not stress this enough. Avery Bradley can't shoot. I don't need any fancy numbers to prove this. If you just watch a quarter,...

Green Envy: What Hawks Fans Said - 3/29

The playoff seeding race continued Friday night, with the Boston Celtics picking up a game on the Atlanta Hawks. The 118-107 win moved Boston to within 1.5 games of Atlanta for the Eastern Conference's six-seed. These two teams are very familiar with each other, as are their fans. There was a lot to say about how horrid Josh Smith played. Though there was conspicuously little...

Celtics Must Prove They Can Win on the Road

Celtics forward Brandon Bass (left) was fighting for loose balls with Cleveland Cavaliers players such as Luke Walton (right). The Celtics were able to snap their five game losing streak with a 93-92 win at the buzzer over the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena. This brings the Celtics’ road record to 13-23, which is the worst in the NBA for teams who would be in the playoffs...

Celtics Take Down Hawks 118-107

Boston had their highest scoring half of the season with 66 in the 1st 24 minutes, and the followed that up with 52 in the second to win a fast-paced, exciting game. Jeff Green, (27 pts, 4 reb, 4 ast) Paul Pierce (20 points, 10 reb, 10 ast) and Jason Terry (24 pts, 5-7 3-pt shooting) were all exceptional and Brandon Bass kept up his reinvigorated play with 13 points and 3 blocks...
