The Celtics came out firing on all cylinders to begin the game. Marcus Smart in particular was feeling it early knocking down two quick threes to help him score 10 points in the first quarter alone. Like Smart, the C's were making their three point shots at a healthy clip early in the game. However, the deep ball betrayed the Celts in the second period(5-13 in the first half). Old...

Amid turmoil, can Rajon Rondo turn things around in Dallas?

Rajon Rondo has always been a prickly personality whose competitive and combative nature is sure to rub some people the wrong way. But when the Mavericks acquired the point guard on Dec. 18, the move was met with near unanimous praise. Dallas lost some depth in Brandan Wright and Jae Crowder, but a starting lineup of Rondo, Dirk Nowitzki, Monta Ellis, Tyson Chandler and Chandler...

Demarcus Cousins, and the Celtics quest for rim protection

More than anything, the Boston Celtics need to find someone capable of protecting the rim. In the post-KG era, we've too often seen opposing team's get to the rim both with ease and without fear. Past the initial wave, and attacking the rim without even a moments pause. It's the fundamental reason I have an issue with the idea of potentially adding Demarcus Cousins if in fact he...

Video: Celtics & the Garden honor Tommy Heinsohn on Hall of Fame enshrinement as coach

Tommy was already in the Hall as a player obviously. Nice to see the 2nd best coach in Celtics history get his due for that area as well. Been listening to Tommy for so long that he practically feels like family by now.Come on Brad?! You totally could have found a plaid jacket for the game. Would have been a great tribute. Total blown opportunity. p.s. The 70's Celtica are ridiculously slept on.

Before Wednesday's game against the Knicks, Jared Sullinger commented on his recent foot injury, as well as need to get in better shape. per ESPN's Chris Forsberg A little bit of everything -- change the physique, change the way I look.

Fire up your trade machines: George Karl would be willing to move Demarcus Cousins

If you thought your day peaked after today's llama chase... you were 100% right. Two llamas, running for both their lives, as well as their freedoms is unbeatable. Here's a close second though; reports are that George Karl is in charge of personnel in Sacramento, and he doesn't consider Demarcus Cousins untouchable. Karl wants players who move the ball and push the tempo, and that...

Jonas Jerebko surprises in blowout win over Knicks

When the Celtics shipped Tayshaun Prince to Detroit at the trade deadline for Jonas Jerebko and Luigi Datome last Thursday, the move was met with a general shrug of the shoulders. The big move of the day was the deal for Isaiah Thomas - obtaining a pair of Pistons bigs for an expiring contract was merely an afterthought. A week later, Thomas is still clearly the headliner in Boston...

Evan Turner logs first career triple-double; I'm starting to come around on the guy

Since the day the Celtics signed him to a two-year contract, I have not been a fan of Evan Turner.  But, I'm willing to admit that I'm beginning to see him in a different light.  I've had this thought lingering in the back of my mind for some time now, and it took center stage when he hit that game-winner vs. the Hawks just before the All-Star break.Honestly, Turner's first-ever...

Celtics stomp the Knicks 115 to 94

The Boston Celtics defeated the New York Knicks 115 to 94 tonight at the TD Garden. The Celtics were slow out the gate and played down to the cellar-dwelling Knicks level, putting us in a hole down at half-time. We turned it on in the 3rd quarter with a huge surge, just crushing the Knicks soul. New York is a god-awful team by the way, so so so bad. The C’s went on a 43-13 run...

With Olynyk and Sullinger out, Brad Stevens shortens big man rotation

Isaiah Thomas looks like a star, so why were his other teams so quick to let him go?

Before last Thursday's trade deadline, only the Magic and Knicks had attempted fewer free throws this season than the Celtics. Boston's inability to get to the line limited it offensively and contributed to the Celtics having the ninth-worst offense in the league (100.9 points per 100 possessions). Enter Isaiah Thomas, a foul-drawing menace averaging 6.6 free-throw attempts per 36...

The point guard is averaging just 9 points, 6.2 assists and 4.5 rebounds in Dallas, and now this; midway through the third quarter, a pretty heated exchange with head coach Rick Carlisle, after Carlisle called a timeout leading to Rajon remaining on the bench for the final 20+ minutes.

Avery Bradley is on fire since the All-Star break

Last summer, when the Celtics inked Avery Bradley to a 4-year, $32 million contract, many fans thought it was far too much for a defensive specialist. But Bradley has proved this season that he is not just a one-dimesional player, as the fifth year Celtic continues to make strides on the offensive end.In the last three games, the Celts' starting shooting guard has shot out of this...
