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.
“An initial sprain is always the biggest zing right there when it happens,” Lee said after the Celtics’ 104-94 loss to Dallas. “But hopefully it’s just swelled up a little bit.
“I’ll get some medicine and some ice, and hopefully then it will go down and I’ll be ready to go (tonight). I’ve sprained my ankle a couple of times before and right away is when it’s hurt the most. But once it calmed down I was able to put pressure on it and walk off the court.”
Lee turned his ankle while attempting to pressure a Mike Jamesinbounds pass with 1:51 left. He landed on James’ foot, collapsed, and was unable to get back to his feet as first Vince Carter missed,Brandan Wright grabbed the offensive rebound, and O.J. Mayorewarded the effort with a game-sealing 3-pointer.
Lee, who had to be helped off the floor, lay helplessly on

Jason Terry is confident that the Celtics will meet the Heat in the playoffs and that there will be "fireworks." He had more to say.

Summing up the chaos here in Memphis...Kevin Garnett, Courtney Lee and Marc Gasol all out. Zach Randolph (alarm clock issue) won't start.

Garnett did not leave the Mavs game with any...
We already knew that there was a good chance Courtney Lee would be out tonight, but now we find out KG is also hurt. From the Celtics’ official Twitter:
Kevin Garnett and Courtney Lee are both out tonight with sprained left ankles.

No word on how KG hurt his ankle. Multiple media reporting he will have an MRI back in Boston on Monday...
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...
I like how Bradley just handles his business and runs back on defense. No need to show up Davis with extended mean mugging after the dunk. And unlike DeAndre Jordan and LeBron James dunking on MUCH smaller players, here we have Bradley, who's not much taller than 6 feet, dunking on a legit 6'10" big man. Much more impressive.

There obviously has not been much to cheer about this week for Celtics fans. But last night, we got to see yet another vicious throw down by one of the C’s. This time, it was Avery Bradley. Check out his flush on Memphis’ Ed Davis in video, GIF & picture format. Photos courtesy of HoopChina.
Former Celtics' guard Ray Williams has died at age 58. He was a combo guard brought on board to help with the Celtics' depth in 1985.
You can find out more on what Ray was up to here.
Our condolences go out to the Williams' family from everyone at Celticslife.
Tonight's 110-106 loss to the Grizzlies was filled with ups and downs. The Celtics got off to nice start, but slipped in the second and third quarters. Their fourth quarter contained a rally that didn't start until about the 6:00 mark. Had it started earlier, they definitely would've won. But it didn't. What's done is done.
Tonight's USOTN easily goes to...
Just a few random thoughts for tonight's post game wrap up. First, KG's injury is troubling. He didn't seem to injure the foot in the game but they said he was walking gingerly afterwards. It is being described as a foot injury rather than an ankle injury. And the fact that they are going to take an MRI makes it even more worrisome. I remember back in that...
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...
Jason Terry was uninspiring in his return to Dallas.Eight-point leads are such a tease.On a night when most people were more interested in the college basketball games on TV, the Celtics looked equally uninterested in the proceedings. Every time Boston went on a run and cut the lead to six, eight or ten points, the Mavericks responded with a 3-pointer or a pair of baskets to push...

After knocking off #2 seed Georgetown 78-68 on Friday, the Eagles of Florida Gulf Coast University just beat seventh seeded San Diego State (81-71) to become the first #15 seed in the history of the NCAA Tournament to reach the Sweet Sixteen. FGCU has only been in existence for 16 years, and moved up to Division 1 just two seasons ago. When they take on the Florida Gators in...
