Do we need more Shavlik?

For pretty much as long as I can remember, one of the Celtics biggest weaknesses has been rebounding.  Last night Shavlik Randolph pulled down 13 boards in 22 minutes.  An amazing 7 of them were of the offensive variety; for comparison in the win at Cleveland on Wednesday the C's as a team had a total of 2 offensive rebounds.  Here's what Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston...

Green Envy: What Hawks Fans Said - 3/29

The playoff seeding race continued Friday night, with the Boston Celtics picking up a game on the Atlanta Hawks. The 118-107 win moved Boston to within 1.5 games of Atlanta for the Eastern Conference's six-seed. These two teams are very familiar with each other, as are their fans. There was a lot to say about how horrid Josh Smith played. Though there was conspicuously little...

Of Virgil, Dante and the Boston Celtics

In so many ways, the Celtics resemble the spirit of Dante about to enter his journey into Hell to rescue his beloved Beatrice. Beatrice is of course Banner #18 and Hell will surely be surviving with success to the 2013 playoffs entering as a 6th seeded team at best in the East. We could continue with the analogies with Dante´s marvelous opus by giving the role of the Devil to LeBron...

Kevin Garnett ankloot injury update: No timetable yet.

We all knew that Kevin Garnett's body was quite different from the rest of the world, but I could have never guessed that it would be this complicated to figure out what his injury is: According to Doc Rivers, it's a foot injury that happened against the Mavs. According to Danny Ainge, it's his ankle, and it happened against the Hornets. According to Danny Ainge (wait...

Why Hondo's near triple-double seasons were better than Oscar's

Guest post By Cort Reynolds It has become common knowledge that Oscar Robertson once averaged a triple-double for an NBA season back in 1961-62. This impressive feat has long been trotted out as evidence that the Big O was the greatest all-around player of the pre-1980 era.   Robertson, in just his second season, averaged 30.8 points, 12.5 rebounds and a league-best 11.4...

Danny Ainge says it's embarrassing for LeBron to complain about officiating

In an appearance on WEEI yesterday afternoon, Danny Ainge was asked what he thought about the hard fouls the Bulls committed on LeBron James Wednesday night: “I think the referees got the calls right. I don’t think it was a hard foul, I think the one involving LeBron against Boozer, that was flagrant. I think the officials got it right. I think that it’s almost embarrassing...

Miami win streak halted at 27; why the Celtics are better off seeing Miami later in the playoffs

After 27, games spread over 53 days, the Miami Heat's 27 game winning streak finally came to an end last night in Chicago, against a Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose-less Bulls squad. Say what you want about Miami, but the streak was incredibly impressive. They won blowouts (17 wins by 10+), close games (6 games decided by 5 points or less), home games (13), road games (14), games...

Jordan Crawford talks playing in low-tops

Those are practically flip flops CSNNE's Jessica Camerato talked to Jordan Crawford recently on why he wears low-tops (as seen in the AP picture to the left): They help me move quicker, jump higher, all the good stuff. Whatever shoes are comfortable, really, that’s what I go with – comfortable and light,” he said. “These are the lightest ones I’ve got right now...

Grizzlies deny Vescey report that they have signed Keyon Dooling

Twitter fight! Twitter fight! Sounds like one of two things. Either the Grizzlies are going to sign him, but haven't "signed" him yet, aka semantics. or Vecsey jumped the gun in order to be first to report a signing. Truth is Dooling makes his announcements to @CelticsLife, so Vecsey and Vernon should be asking us what's up! Grizzlies CEO Jason Levien tells me...

What's wrong with Avery Bradley?

Since shooting 10-15 in his 22 point outburst at Philadelphia on March 5th, Avery Bradley has made just 39 of 121 field goal attempts (32.2% over the last 12 games).  He hasn't scored in double figures in 6 games, and is only 2-13 from three in the past 5.  Until yesterday he'd gone 3 straight contests without a steal, and back to back games without recording a single assist...

Jeff Green's heart surgeon watches him hit game winner

Jeff Green’s comeback from heart surgery merely 14 months ago is stuff of legends, almost like a real-life 'Iron-Man' story. I remember reports coming out that it would take him quite a while to get back up to speed, and that he wouldn’t be the same player post-operation. This stretch of games since Rondo went down with his ACL injury has shown the true potential that...

The Game Winner - Part 2
