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.
“I just thought we were out-thinking ourselves tonight and I should have probably stopped it, and I didn’t,” Rivers said. “I let it continue and the old saying is, ‘An athlete in thought is a non-athlete,’ and I thought we played in thought and that makes you slow, that makes you tentative, and I thought that’s who we were tonight. I thought, offensively, we were even worse. We came off our best ball-movement game where everybody trusted the offense, the pass. Then tonight, when you’re playing a team that’s got a win streak like they do, everybody wants to beat them, and I thought every single individual on our team wanted to beat them and every individual tried to do it by themselves, instead of just playing the way you play.”
ESPN Boston: Banking on consistency?
Sometimes you can psych yourself out, and clearly that’s

Above are the video highlights from Fab Melo's 32 point, 9 rebound, and 9 block game against the Idaho Stampede. Hopefully when Melo gets recalled from the D-League, he can use all the experience he got as a confidence builder and can perform well for the Celtics. We could really use his size.

Ok now this is getting a bit ridiculous...
Dear Mr. Green,
I would like to start off by saying how truly sorry I am for my actions over the past two months since the start of the 2012-13 NBA Regular season. I took the time prior to the Celtics Christmas Day game against the Brooklyn Nets to watch the ESPN feature on you and your recovery from heart surgery. I must admit that for the majority of this season I have been nothing...
Two former Celtics were in the D-League news this week as the Canton Charge sent the rights to former Celtic Luke Harangody and a 2013 third-round draft pick to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants today for former Celtic JaJuan Johnson and Fort Wayne’s 2013 first-round draft pick.
The 6-foot-10 Johnson, a big man who would rather shoot jump shots than bang down low, averaged 13.2 points...
A Look at the Boston Celtics Match-ups in California The Boston Celtics say goodbye to 2012 from sunny California after kicking off a four game road trip by administering a Christmas Day beating to the Brooklyn Nets. The West Coast swing, in particular the first two games against the Los Angeles Clippers and the [...]
Here are the highlights from the Clippers beat down of the Celtics late Thursday night. Celtics box score below.
Hopefully the Celtics aren’t sensitive about their weight. Because Doc Rivers certainly doesn’t care.
The Celtics’ coach complimented rookie forward Jared Sullinger, and then called him fat. This backhanded compliment came after Sullinger had a career-day on Christmas, going six-for-seven shooting with 16 points and seven rebounds.
“Jared was wonderful. He’s such a smart...
As you guys know, I live in San Francisco but am originally from Long Beach. I am here right now visiting my family and old friends. What I heard recently was pretty shocking. Most of the Laker fans here have told me they will be rooting for the Celtics tonight so the Clippers streak will end. I can not believe it. I would root for anyone to beat the Lakers and that would even mean...
Too much of this.Let’s get this out of the way at the outset: The Clippers are good. Really good. Horrifyingly, frustratingly, soul-crushingly good. The Celtics, at the moment, are ok. Not bad, not great, probably not even good, just very .500. So it shouldn’t be a huge surprise that the Clippers blew Boston out of Staples Center Thursday night.But that didn’t make it any easier...
On Thursday night the Celtics started out their three game road trip against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Celtics come in off a blowout win on Christmas day against the Nets in which the team was firing on all cylinders. The Clippers own the league's best record at 22-6 and had a 14 game winning streak coming into the night. The Celtics looked to start off their trip ending...
Imagine for a moment a top 15 player in the NBA was given the rights by his team to come and film a movie in which he plays for the Celtics. Think of James Harden today. Now what if I told you this actually took place?
It did in a movie called Amazing Grace and Chuck, and why there's so little coverage on it today is beyond me. I remember seeing this film a long time ago...
Danny Ainge addressed the Celtics' struggles so far this season.
The Celtics and Pistons have made it clear to the Kings that they are highly interested in Cousins if and when he becomes available.

The Celtics look to shake off their loss to the the Clippers and get
back into the win column...
After kicking off a four-game trek with a much-needed win Christmas Day, the Boston Celtics saw their road woes resume their last time out.
They're likely to have their hands full again with a visit to the Bay up next.
The Celtics try to avoid falling below .500 for the first time in seven weeks Saturday night as they visit a Golden State Warriors team that continues to turn...
