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.
The players credit head coach Doc Rivers, who apparently stressed the importance of roles during the team’s Friday morning shootaround. Rivers didn’t discuss the meeting after the game — the players alluded to it after his press conference was already over — but he apparently lined up his entire team and, man-by-man, went down the line and reasserted to everybody what their respective roles are. It was a sequence that really resonated with the players and it showed on the court Friday night.
“Each guy is finding their role,” said Rondo. “Doc had a speech today about guys’ roles and I think tonight showed what guys took from it. A lot of guys responded well from it. You can go another way, but everyone in this locker room took it very well.”
Kevin Garnett was quick to echo Rondo’s thoughts.
“Doc kind of set us aside as a

What Rondo has done so far this season has been nothing short of incredible
By now it's pretty well known that Rajon Rondo is on a historic run in the assist department. In fact, if Rondo can pick up ten helpers tonight, it will mark the 37th consecutive game he has done so, tying him with John Stockton for the 2nd longest streak in NBA history. Impressive, but also not breaking...
Jason Terry wore a pair of retro Rebook Iverson Answer IV’s last night in the Celtics win over the Thunder. The Answer IV is the same model AI wore while stepping over Celtic’s coach Tyronn Lue in the 2001 playoffs. Terry has been doing a lot to bring “Reebok Back” in Boston. This colorway of the Answer IV release a few months back and sold out quickly. You can still...
After having his best night of the season and helping the Celtics beat the Thunder 108-100, Jeff Green said he was not motivated by the fact that he used to play for the Thunder. Jason Terry was another Celtic who had a big night, scoring 16 points wich included a huge three-pointer with 36 seconds [...]
Here's a nice video to warm your heart this holiday weekend. EK just shared it with me and I thought you all would like it. While I can't personally vouch for the charity (Just saw the video and haven't done any research, but appears pretty legit to me) I feel I should share their story that they attached to the video: https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/bNnE3 More then...
Ouch Paul, very ouch. One of the worst crossover broken ankles I've seen in a very long time. Jameer Nelson made a little head fake on Paul last night and Pierce bit hard, really hard. He fell strait backwards and his right leg bent behind him and got trapped under his body. Pierce would stay in the game and end up dropping 23 points (Jameer had 20.) The Celtics also...
Follow Mike Macchi on Twitter The answer quite simply is NO! This is by no means a knock on Gortat and his game. Gortat is a very good complimentary player who has played very well in the role he has been asked to play in over the years, first with the Magic and now with [...]

If Michael Jordan can do it, why can't Michael Finley? There are far too many reasons for me to name here. However, that doesn't keep Finley from wanting to make a comeback. The former Dallas Mavericks forward has been working with Mark Cuban in the team's front office, but he's been staying in shape and wants to play again. According to Marc Stein of ESPN...

Paul Pierce has done this a million times. Early in games, late in games, in the middle, it does not matter when. Pierce knows exactly how to finish things off and how to brush off any failures. When he stepped into a wide-open 3-pointer with 2:10 left in overtime to break a 108-108 tie, it was old hat for him.
For the Magic, it is not quite second nature to win these close games...

BOSTON — Aside from LeBron James, Russell Westbrook might be the most polarizing player in the NBA. Basketball fans either love or hate the Oklahoma City guard and the constant frenetic pace at which he plays, with his detractors claiming he is not a pure point guard and his defenders insisting he brings a unique combination of talents to the position.
