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 and joke after losses, while others are furious. Some players expect the improvement will come and don’t appear worried about losses piling up, while others are very concerned. Pierce said he believes the Celtics will come to life and make another deep playoff run. And it’s understandable that he feels that way. Last year’s team was 15-17 before winning 24 of its final 34 games and advancing to Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals.

My first Boston Celtics' Game Gone Wrong

Celtics improve, kind of don't get blown out this time, still lose 93-83

Unfortunately, that was maybe the best stretch in the game for the C's, and it was the first quarter. The Grizzlies survived that and...

Dreaming of RON DMC

As the new year begins, the rumors surrounding the Celtics and coveted bigs like DeMarcus Cousins can only get louder.  Louder - that is - until the February trade deadline passes or until DMC is dealt to another team - whichever comes first.  It is quite possible that Danny Ainge will come away empty handed or with a less-coveted player but a (serious) change, moving forward...
