Time for Jae Crowder to lay off the three-pointers

Isaiah Thomas: 'That's what you want to be a Boston Celtic for.'

With 6:52 remaining in the second quarter last night, Isaiah Thomas skipped a pass over to a wide open Jonas Jerebko at the top of the key.  Jerebko nailed a three-pointer to make the score Celtics 56, Warriors 30.  I repeat, there were six minutes and 52 seconds remaining in the second quarter.

Young Celtics Can’t Hang On Against Warriors

The Celtics ran out to a 26 point lead against the team many believe is the best in the NBA right now, the Golden State Warriors. The Celtics didn’t so much lose that lead and eventually the game, as they did return to the mean.  What they did in the first half wasn’t really sustainable, but they remained competitive right to the end, and still had a chance to pull out the game...

Brandon Bass dunks on Andrew Bogut

The Warriors may have the best record in the NBA, but that doesn't mean the Celtics were ready to get pushed around in their game against the championship favorites over the weekend.  Brandon Bass certainly agrees with this statement.
