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. Given the benefit of playing time against the Hawks, Daniels came off the bench with season-high totals in points (12), rebounds (eight) and a career-high four steals. Once Rivers returns to his playoff rotation, Daniels’ short window is bound to close. Rivers can lose faith quickly in players, and it takes him time to redevelop trust. But right now Daniels clearly has the coach’s attention. “He was terrific,” said Rivers. “The best game he may have played this year. He was terrific, and he did a lot of things. The little baskets and the rebounds — he had eight rebounds. It was good to see him compete. He was active, alert, responsive, that’s what you want him to be.” Herald - Marquis Daniels' catches Doc's attention "We always say you push and pull and … if you're not playing and a new...

Lin Runs For 1st Time Snce Surgery

After blowing up the sports world with an incredible two weeks of games, Jeremy Lin became an instant star. Once Carmelo Anthony returned to the lineup after injury, however, his production dropped significantly. Then, Lin suffered a knee injury that would require surgery and put him out for the rest of the season (barring an [...]

Ray Allen out tomorrow, could play Thursday & other practice notes

Twitter / @ChrisMannixSI: Doc Rivers says Ray Allen ... via kwout I'm not sure what to make of this anymore.  Ray Allen's ankle will hold him out at least one more game.  It would be nice if the ankle was strong enough to get at least one more game in before the playoffs.   Meanwhile, Rajon Rondo, Mickael Pietrus, and Greg Stiemsma all also...

Greg Stiemsma missed second half against Hawks after his bothersome feet acted up

Despite a report from the Celtics during their game last night with the Hawks that Greg Stiemsma was only sitting for rest, the shot-blocking specialist explained that his bothersome feet acted up during the first half.Doc Rivers sat Stiemsma in the second half due to the center’s foot pain, not just to give him a 24-minute breather.“Greg’s foot was bothering him, so we pulled...

Daniels making the most of additional playing time

Boston HeraldGiven the benefit of playing time against the Hawks, Daniels came off the bench with season-high totals in points (12), rebounds (eight) and a career-high four steals. “He was terrific,” said Rivers. “The best game he may have played this year.

Knicks Fly Away With a Victory Over the Hawks

After the Knicks were sunk by the Cavaliers Friday night, many fans were left disheartened by the team's lack of killer instinct against the league's weaker teams.Looking to bounce back, the team would have to do so without Tyson Chandler, who sat out this afternoon's game against the Hawks in an attempt to rest up with the playoffs near. Ironically enough, not playing...

Top Duns(TEN) Observations From The Knicks Win Over Hawks

1.) Even though, Woodson opted to rest his star center, this game solidified Tyson Chandler's Defensive Player of the Year candidacy. With Chandler in the lineup, the Knicks have allowed 93.8 points per game and 44.8% from the field. Previously with Chandler out of the lineup, the Knicks had allowed 118.5 points per game.

Bradley Leads C’s Through Injury Bug

With Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett all forced to miss time due to injuries down the stretch, second-year guard Avery Bradley has stepped his game up to a whole new level.  Because of his strong play, expect him to be a factor off the bench for the C’s in the playoffs.  On Friday against the Atlanta Hawks, with home-court advantage at stake, Avery Bradley was...

Day 118 of 124: Joe Johnson Schools The Celtics B-Team

Line of the Night: With the Big 4 (Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Rajon Rondo) sitting for the Celtics last night, Joe Johnson (3.10) took it to the Celtics B-Team racking up 30 points (3 threes, 11-18 from the field, 5-5 from the line), with 5 rebounds, 6 assists, and 2 steals. I’d be pretty pissed if I were Johnson too, considering the Celtics kind of flaunted the...

Hawks 97, Celtics 92 highlights

Box Score: Cavaliers 98, Knicks 90

I’m betting this version of the New York Knicks would prefer to never enter Quicken Loans Arena again. The Knicks lost their 10th straight in The Q as the Cavaliers looked much more focused and determined against a playoff team that had plenty more to lose. Kyrie Irving shook some rust off and finished with  21 points on 6-of-15 shooting, while Manny Harris added 19 points and...
