Your Morning Dump… Where Rondo returns and likes what he sees

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Looking back across the hallway at the Celtics, Rondo had kind words for Thomas (“He’s been unstoppable this year”) and simply likes the way the club competes. “They play well as a team,” he said. “They...

Great video that was not available earlier when I posted your “Videos of the Day”. Avery Bradley’s buzzer-beater against Cleveland earned the top play on NBA.com’s top 10 plays of the week. But the best part of the clip is hearing Grande & Max’s call-especially Cedric Maxwell’s “bye bye Lebron!”. Enjoy…

Recap: Celtics throttle Kings, seize 3rd seed

So this is what is was like to be a Nuggets fan in 1984. The Celtics rode a 46 point 1st quarter explosion to a 128-119 victory over the Sacramento Kings. The victory is Boston’s 4th straight and 12 out of 15. At 31-22 the C’s own 3rd place in the Eastern conference by a full-game over the Miami Heat. This could have been easier. The Celtics stretched the lead to 20+ points...

Videos of the Day: Bradley sticks it to Lebron, Cavs

In case you live under a rock, Avery Bradley helped the Celtics bury Lebron and the Cavs last night with a corner three as time expired. It looked like victory had slipped away from the C’s, but a fantastic play by Marcus Smart gave Boston a chance, and they capitalized on it. The Celtics got an exhilarating 104-103 win and stunned the Cavs & the Quicken Loans Arena crowd....

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 17: Hero Bradley & yes, lots of trade talk

Fresh off a buzzer-beating win in Cleveland, Jay King and I break down the amazing comeback and how the Celtics were able to score five points in less than five seconds.

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “It was the perfect storm. Things just went well for them down the stretch,” said Cavs coach Tyronn Lue, making an early submission for understatement of the year. The Bostonians had trailed by nine in the...

Blatant speculation: The 2016 Nets pick for Brook Lopez?

Tis the season for rumors and unfounded speculation and I (unlike grumpy John) love to indulge. The guys at Sheridan Hoops wonder if Brooklyn would look to move Brook Lopez for a draft pick, their/our draft pick: Lopez is averaging more than 20 points and is on the first year of a three-year, $63 million deal that will probably look better as the salary cap grows. Assuming the...

Videos of the Day: IT leads Celts over Detroit, Curry & Wall go off

Check out highlights from Isaiah Thomas’ 17 point, 7 assist night during Boston’s (mostly) easy 102-95 win over the Pistons. Now I realize this is a Celtics website, but I’d be amiss if I didn’t include Steph Curry’s ridiculous 51 point, 11 trey performance against the Wiz and John Wall in today’s clips. Speaking of Wall, the blazing fast point guard put up 41 points...

Report: Denver keeps rejecting Boston’s offers for Gallinari

It appears Danny Ainge’s tactics with the Denver Nuggets for Danilo Gallinari resemble my dating approach in my early 20s: keep asking until they a) punch you  b) don’t take your calls or c) break down and say yes. The folks at Hoops Rumors piece together multiple reports: The Celtics have aggressively pursued a trade for Danilo Gallinari, but the Nuggets have consistently...

Boston’s greatest strength is its greatest weakness at the trade deadline

The NBA trade deadline is in two weeks. By the time we go to bed 14 days from now, we’ll know whether Danny Ainge was able to pull off a move for any of the assets he’s been stockpiling. But like the conspiracy theorist loading up his bunker for the zombie apocalypse, there’s still an expiration date on a lot of those cans. Nothing (except Twinkies) lasts for ever. Ainge and...

Recap: Stan Van Gundy Loses Neck, Game.

This was not a close game. At least for about the middle 40 minutes or so. Some serious defensive lapses in the middle stretch of the fourth allowed Detroit back into it, but when the dust settled and the referees stopped blowing whistles, the Celtics won 102-95, running their record in the second game of a back-to-back to 9-3. Boston started out the game 2-7 and then caught fire...

Al Horford isn’t bothered by the trade rumors he doesn’t read

Hawks reporter Chris Vivlamore asked Al Horford about the recent trade speculation: “I think my priority and my focus is on the team and to keep play and do what I do,” Horford said Wednesday morning before the Hawks played at the 76ers. “This is my team. I feel like Atlanta is my home so my focus is on the team. I’m not going to pay attention to all of that.” …The...

Videos of the Day: Tyler takes Manhattan

Tyler Zeller had his best game all season last night, putting in 16 points and grabbing 10 rebounds.

Our guy TZ has you covered with Godzeller’s highlights, as well as those from Isaiah Thomas. IT dropped 20 on New York, and also dished out...

Report: David Lee will be gone in a few weeks

Now that David Lee is completely out of the rotation, I don’t care much about his spot on the roster. I’ve seen him actively participate on the bench and celebrate along with the rest of his teammates. But he cares about his spot on the roster, and the Celtics care about making sure this lack of distraction continues long term… so they’re reportedly going to get rid of him...

Recap: Zeller, Turner power Celtics past Knicks

It wasn’t a particularly great game for the Celtics. They came out cold, but Brad Stevens made a lineup adjustment that worked and guys who didn’t play well early stepped up late and the Celtics came out of New York with a 97-89 win. The first half wasn’t particularly great for Boston. They took 13 3’s and missed all of them. They shot 38% as a whole from the floor, and...
