Enemy Chatter: Rick Carlisle is looking forward to his number being retired

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Dallas. Carlisle couldn’t resist having a little fun at the media’s expense before Wednesday’s game. He was asked about the 1986 Boston team that he was part of and won the NBA championship. “I know my number is going to be retired...

Your Morning Dump… Where Doc was pleased with one thing from last night’s win

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. “I’ve been talking about (defensive pressure) a lot, and over the last seven games it’s been paying dividends for us,” said Rivers. “I told our guys, we also broke our own record with deflections. It felt...

Recap: Celtics beat Mavs in a double overtime mess

I can’t wipe this game from my memory fast enough. Just a big… mess. Despite running a clinic on defensive breakdowns, the Celtics managed to squeak out a 117 -115 win in 2 OT over the Mavericks. The Green: Rajon Rondo’s 16 points, 15 assists, 9 rebounds and 3 steals in 52 minutes. He wasn’t perfect, but he made some big plays, including  some key defensive stops on OJ Mayo...

The Walter McCarty Blog: Appreciating Boston

The Celtics franchise is one with winning traditions, and when you put on the uniform, there is always pressure to win. I got to Boston early in my career; our team was very young and I think we were mostly expected to be competitive in the league. The crowd was always quick to know, if we didn’t bring it you heard boos at home. For the most part, we had a lot of fun. As we matured...

Amir Johnson lost his goddamn mind last night

The Raptors are, unsurprisingly, pretty terrible.  They have the second-worst record in the league and not a whole lot of hope for the future unless they try to rebuild (again) and try to see if they can get anything worthwhile for Andrea Bargnani. So the last things fans need is something ridiculous like what Amir Johnson pulled last night.  You can see it in the video, but basically...

Enemy Chatter: KG came in and… bang, bang, bang

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics.

The NBA has announced a $25,000 fine for Chris Wilcox “for making an obscene gesture directed toward fans during a game.” While the league didn’t say what the specific incident was… I’m pretty sure this is what did it: Kiss cam ends with Chris Wilcox flipping off the camera man when he and Jared Sullinger put on board. — Chris Forsberg (@ESPNForsberg) December 8, 2012...
