Celtics Minute with Emily Austen for 12/10

In today's Celtics' Minute, Emily talks about Rondo's chat with reporters today at the Celtics' shoot around and Rondo gives us an update on his progress.   He's still isn't sure when he will return, but he stresses that he hasn't really done anything to test his knee as yet. He has done some one on one and drills but he reminds us that those things aren't the same as playing 5...

5 Things Celtics must do to win tonight - Nets 12/10

Well, this game will be fun to watch. The Nets have been terrible lately, while the Celtics have been amazing. The Nets supposedly are a powerhouse, while the Celtics are supposedly "rebuilding." So basically, this contest is a statement one for the Celts. If they're for real, they gotta win this one easily. And for the record, I think they will. So, here's the five things the C...

Rondo Visits Crowd Goes Wild

Rajon Rondo visited The Crowd Goes Wild and talks about everything from trade rumors to fixing the Knicks.  I found a couple of things very interesting. First, he credits the Celtics surprising success this season to playing for each other. They aren't playing with individual agendas. He also credits the new coach. He describes Brad Stevens as very humble and encouraging. He...

Weekly Rankings are Out - Celtics on the Move

The Celtics are moving up in the weekly Power Rankings and down in the Tank Rankings. Let's start with Chad Ford's Tank Rank. The Celtics have said right from the beginning that they aren't tanking. No one believed them at first but they are starting to make believers out of even the most staunch tankers. The Celtics had moved down to #7 last week and have moved 2 more spots...

Poised Celtics Notch Blowout Win over Knicks 114-73

I watched Game Time on NBA-TV hoping to see some good coverage of the biggest rout so far this season. After sitting through 15 minutes about Kobe's return and the Lakers' loss to the Raptors and then 5 more minutes about the Thunder's win over the Pacers, I caught their 2 minute bit on the Celtics' win over the Knicks, with 1 minute of that interviewing Carmelo Anthony about what...

Celtics Minute with Emily Austen for 12/9

The Celtics players enjoyed that win as much as the fans did. I was impressed with their poise on the court. When the Knicks started to play dirty and Avery Bradley was thrown to the floor or when Gerald Wallace was horse collared, neither player retaliated. I believe that Brad Stevens' even demeanor is rubbing off on his players. Now if Rondo can keep his temper in those situations...

Comments from the Other Side - Knicks 12/8

  What a great game!  The Celtics led from wire to wire and looked good doing it.  To anyone still wondering, no, the Celtics are not tanking.   They are out there playing their hearts out.  It's fun to see the usually obnoxious Knicks fans eating a bit of humble pie.  I have no idea why any Celtics fan would want Danny to trade for either Melo or Stoudemire.  Knicks fans...

Underrated Stat of the Night - Knicks 12/8

After watching the Celtics beat the Knicks today 114-73, I am positively speechless. I thought this game would be close, but I guess not. I guess the Knicks aren't a pro basketball team anymore. And I don't mean to bash them when I say that, but it's kinda true. They miss all their shots and they don't play any sort of defense. They can beat up the little teams like the Magic and...

End first: After one quarter at the Madison Square Garden, the Celtics lead the Knicks, 34-11. I gotta say, I don't know what this proves. Are the Celtics really good, or are the Knicks really bad? Either way, this game's been a blowout. Keep watching it. [Discuss on CG Forums!]

5 Things Celtics must do to win today - Knicks 12/8

After stunning the Nuggets Friday night in Boston, the Celtics will head to New York today for a divisional game against one of their biggest rivals, the New York Knicks. So far this season, the Knicks have lived a nightmare, losing 13 out of their first 18 games. However, they have won their last two games in blowout fashion, so they might be good. We just don't know. So, here's...

Comments from the Other Side - Nuggets 12/6

The Celtics continue to surprise and delight with wire to wire wins like this one.  It's always fun to see opposing fans who come into a game expecting an easy win melt down over the course of the game as they realize that they are going to lose.  I love the fact that Sully gets respect from other teams' fans.  And teams continue to underestimate the Celtics.  Most don't know...

Mile High Blues: Celtics 106, Nuggets 98

Steezy bein' steezy. (Photo by Jared Wickerham/Getty Images)Aided by one of the strongest opening starts this season, the Celtics routed the Nuggets, 106-98 at home. These Nuggets are not the run-and-gun, dribble-drive Nugs of the past, which made it a better matchup for the Celtics. Makes me wonder why Brian Shaw wanted to change the system if it was working so well, but new coaches...

Underrated Stat of the Night - Nuggets 12/6

Thanks to 22 points from Jordan Crawford and 18 points from Avery Bradley, the Celtics were able to upset the Nuggets tonight at the TD Garden, 106-98. The Celts started this one off on a 14-0 run, and led by 20 at halftime. At one point in the third quarter, their lead was just 3, but from then on they seemed to have things figured out. Which is obvious since they won. I guess I...

End first: After one quarter in Boston, the Celtics surprisingly lead the Nuggets, 39-15. Well, what did I say in the 5 things? That the Celts needed to get off to a fast start. And get off to a fast start they did in this one, scoring the game's first 14 points. Needless to say, these last 12 minutes have been great.[Discuss on CG Forums!]

5 Things Celtics must do to win tonight - Nuggets 12/6

I'm not gonna lie to you guys, I don't think the Celtics are gonna win this game. The Nuggets are 11-7 and consistent, while the Celtics are 8-12 and inconsistent. The Celts are still good, but just not good enough to win a game against any western conference team. Except maybe the Jazz, who are 4-16. Anyway, here's tonight's five things: 5.
