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. “Obviously, everybody wants a rhythm going into the playoffs,” he said. “I’m no different than that. I want to be as healthy as I can; everybody’s dealing with something at this time of year, and I’m no different from that. “I just want to be strong. I want my mind fresh, I want to be as strong and as healthy as I can be, and go at this thing one thousand percent. Nothing less than that.” [...] ”I’m going to go that,” he assured Dickerson when asked if he was “close to being able go 100 percent, or 1,000 percent,” when he returns. “It’s not an interrogative; it’s more of an imperative or a declarative. That’s what it’s going to be . . . My mind set will be 100 percent, all out. Because no one’s promised tomorrow. In the playoffs? You don’t get a tomorrow. Sometimes, this is ...

Jeff Green has probably literally turned into Iron Man

Jeff Green has been playing the basketball of his life. His emergence is one of the few positive signs that the Celtics nation can hold onto going into the Playoffs. How well has he been playing? Steve Bulpett of Boston Herald has an interesting piece of stats: Green is averaging 21.4 points in his 10 games as a starter, a figure that would make him the Celtics’ overall leader...

Green's numbers are impressive by themselves, but it should also be mentioned that a few of those points and rebounds were really, really crucial....

Celtics Fans, Let's Remember Those Three Words

When the Celtics won the championship five years ago, Kevin Garnett gave an emotional post-game interview claiming that, “Anything is possible!” Let’s revisit that brief moment in time... Ever since that year, it’s been a heck of a roller coaster ride for the team and fans. We miss Garnett for one playoff season, the Perkins trade happened, Ray Allen leaves us for the...

Doc on Jeff Green starting: “Jeff has earned that”

Jeff Green has been all smiles since March hitDoc Rivers spoke in practice about Green’s starting gig once KG gets back, saying that he has wanted to start the Georgetown product for quite some time, but his play has only recently justified that decision (via ESPN Boston):“I was hoping (to start Green consistently at some point),” Rivers said. “That was my intention. We weren’t...

Your Morning Dump… Where KG is close to returning

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.

Celtics-Cavaliers Live: Jeff Green, Celts Look for Much Less Exciting Win Against Cleveland

8 a.m. ET: The last time the Celtics and Cavaliers met up, Jeff Green provided a thrilling ending. The Celtics would probably prefer if things were not so exciting this time. Having snapped their two-game losing streak with a victory over the Pistons on Wednesday, the Celtics (39-36) are back in action. Their opponent is the Cavs (22-52), who are having a forgettable season despite...

Comments from the Other Side - Pistons 4/3

It's always sad for me to see fans rooting for a loss in order to tank for a better draft choice.  I've never quite been able to get to the point where I want my team to lose, for any reason.   I can understand other fans not liking Tommy's Celtics homerism, but to wish harm on him is pretty classless.  The guy has 10 rings as both player and coach and has forgotten...

Jeff Green Starting to Embrace Role of Forming Lethal Combination With Paul Pierce

BOSTON — The doubts are raised after every disappointing shooting night. In some cases, they pop up even more suddenly, such as any offensive possession that passes without a replay-worthy dunk. Jeff Green exists in only two versions in the eyes of some observers: the game-dominating freak of nature or the milquetoast waste of four years and $36 million weighing down a Celtics...

Celtics's Struggles Continue; As The Cavs End Theirs

With a game like this, following a losing skid that has seen the Celtics drop 7 of their past 10 game, it would be easy to blame the injuries to Garnett or any other member of this decimated team but these recent losses are starting to become a cause for concern.
