Found January 06, 2013 on Red's Army:
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. According to the NBA schedule, the Celtics will host Phoenix on Wednesday. Last night they were a phoenix.Rising from the ashes of a 19-point, first-half deficit, the Celts turned the beating around in stunning fashion, taking an 89-81 victory from the Atlanta Hawks after it seemed yet another dispiriting defeat would be their fate.“We’re scrappy as (expletive) right now,” Kevin Garnett said. “This is what it is. We’re trying to get wins here, and the only way you can get them is sometimes you’ve got to go take them.” But to stage a brilliant comeback, the Celtics had to first construct an opening half that was as embarrassing as it was futile. The Hawks received 21 points from Lou Williams and shot 52.5 percent while cruising to a 53-38 lead that easily could have been larger. The C’s plane touched down at 2:30 a.m....

Mike Petraglia offers to trade Kevin Garnett. Has it come to this?

When a team is struggling, it's only natural for its fans to demand trades. That I'm OK with. Now, since ESPN created Trade Machine, we've witnessed a myriad of stupid trades that would make sense for only one team that's involved, but you know what, that's OK too, because at least there was effort put in them to make the math work, because some people propose...

Green Envy: What Knicks fans said - 1/7

Maybe the greatest win of the season so far? I haven't really had a lot of ill will against the Knicks, but maybe that's because the Celtics always beat the Knicks. Reading through the comments, it's pretty evident that that's why. The Knicks fans hate the Celtics. It's great to see how much they fear Paul Pierce. It seems like Pierce always has great games at...

Some Celtics Players Laugh And Joke After Losses Causing Concern

One thing that is apparent after the last three games: The Celtics don’t yet trust each other. That’s not to say that Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Rajon Rondo don’t trust each other; they do. They don’t trust some of the newcomers, and Garnett made that clear after Sunday’s 118-96 loss in Sacramento. The Celtics are not on the same page. Some players continue to laugh...

Garnett riles Melo in Celtics win

Carmelo Anthony wasted little time letting his frustration be known after the New York Knicks' 102-96 loss to the Boston Celtics on Monday night. In fact, Anthony apparently was so worked up over his team's sixth defeat in 11 games that he wanted to let his Atlantic Division rivals know first-hand. Following his 6-of-26 shooting performance, one of the worst of his career...

Report: Carmelo Anthony went towards Celtics locker room after game looking for Garnett

Reports from the Knicks post game show that Carmelo went back towards the Celts locker room, presumably to look for KG. Tweets are what we have right now, but we'll keep you posted as this develops. Carmelo exits via the opposite tunnel to avoid walking past the Celtics...or maybe he was waiting for Kevin Garnett. — Frank Isola (@FisolaNYDN) January 8, 2013 MSG is reporting...

Video: Carmelo waits for KG after Celtics huge win

Because NBA TV is stupid and I do not have league pass, I missed the game tonight between the Boston Celtics and the New York Knicks. Yes, it was one of the biggest games of the season so far and Jay King of Celtics Town tweeted out after the game “Bar fights be back, yo“. I could only assume that was a good thing. And reading the rapid recaps (thank you Celtics Town and Celtics...

KG falls into the crowd and breaks one of Tommy Heinsohn’s monitors

At first glance, this video is really nothing to get all that excited about. The Boston Celtics are leading the game by fifteen points. A ball is flying out of bounds and Kevin Garnett in all his KG-ness decides to give a little bit extra effort to save the ball, although an argument can be made that this is the best part of the video because he’s about 67.5 years old and he is...

Carmelo Anthony Has Choice Words For Kevin Garnett

Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett were going back and fourth, to say the least, for most of the second half during Monday night’s matchup at Madison Square Garden, and a double-technical called on them didn’t quite put an end to it. Following Melo’s hard foul on Kevin Garnett, Anthony walks back to the Knicks bench while shouting “F You” to Garnett.

Move Over Boston, Here Comes the New York Knicks

All Things Come To An End I remember in 1st grade I was bullied by this kid named Orlando. For an entire year Orlando terrorized me by taking my lunch money, pushing me around, even chased me home on the last day of school, but getting pushed around got tired really fast and when 2nd grade began I stood up for myself and let Orlando have it. The big bad bully was no more and that’s...

Third-quarter run sparks Celtics past Hawks

ATLANTA -- Down 53-38 to the Atlanta Hawks at halftime, the Boston Celtics were snapping at each other and at coach Doc Rivers. Paul Pierce had had enough. "Don't get mad at Doc. He's coaching," Pierces said. "We've got to get mad at this other team. "I just said we wanted to bring the fight to them. We were kind of bickering at each other a little...

Celtics Smother Knicks 102-96

On Monday night the Celtics faced the New York Knicks in Madison Square Garden. This was the teams first meeting of the year and was certainly going to be one of their toughest tests are the Knicks hold one of the best records in the NBA. Prior to the game bad news hit Celtic nation as the league suspended Rajon Rondo for one game after making contact with a referee in their last...

Taking Stock: Celtics – Pacers

After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value. Starters Offense:     Defense:      Overall:  Rondo off the ball is a menace.  If this was football, we say he’s a great free safety but a bad cornerback.  With Bradley in the game, Rondo can roam into passing lanes and sneak up on players on the post...

Green Envy: What Pacers fans said

It feels good to do a Green Envy post, it has been a while. What feels better is the defensive will the Celtics showed tonight, and scoring 94 points against a defensive team was no less important. Well, of course you would expect Pacers fans to be angry. They were not the most sulky fans, their feet are on earth., and they mostly complained about their own players. There was a lot...

Poor third quarter dooms Hawks against Celtics

ATLANTA (AP) -- Rajon Rondo had 14 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists, and the Boston Celtics rallied to beat the Atlanta Hawks 89-81 on Saturday night. Paul Pierce scored 17 of his 26 points in the third quarter as the Celtics erased a 19-point deficit and went on to consecutive wins for the first time since late November against Oklahoma City and Orlando.
