Ainge Expects More from Bradley and Rookies in 2011-12


When Danny Ainge drafted Avery Bradley in the 2010-11 NBA Draft, he didn't have high expectations for him that season. The same can't be said for JaJuan Johnson and even E'Twaun Moore, as Ainge expects a little more out of the four-year college players.

Ainge, Rivers very satisfied with Boilermaker picks


Celtics President Danny Ainge and Head Coach Doc Rivers spoke about the two newest members of the Boston Celtics, JaJuan Johnson and E'twaun Moore. They hope to be two players who can help the team out this season.

James' Three-pointer, Lack of Execution Doom Celtics


Man, the Celtics just couldn't close it out down the stretch. A lack of execution prevented it. But LeBron James didn't have that problem.

Bosh, Heat Win the Game 4 Battle


Chris Bosh has taken more than his fair share of criticism in this series, but the truth is, he's done just what he has needed to do in three games this series. All of those games have resulted in Miami Heat wins.

Rondo, Garnett make NBA All-Defensive first team


Chris Forsberg reports that Rondo finished second overall in voting, receiving 16 first team votes and seven second team votes totaling 39 points. KG received 33 points. A familiar face earned second team honors. Click the link for the answer and the complete list of vote getters.

Toughness Is Gone? Please . . .


When it comes to the 2010-11 Boston Celtics, there are two things you can't question: Desire and toughness. If you think either of those things left with Kendrick Perkins, think again. This team has shown it all season, and it wasn't more apparent in Game 3.

KG Abdul-Jabbar


It took three games, but Kevin Garnett finally won the matchup with Chris Bosh at the PF position. It wasn't close. Let's see if the C's exploit it more often later in the series.

Rondo Not Sitting This One Out


When Rajon Rondo went down in the third quarter, it didn't look good. After looking at the replay, it looked even worse. But after getting his elbow popped back in he went out there and played the entire fourth quarter. That's toughness.

Celtics pregame notes including 'Shaq Watch'


Some notes and chatter before the Celtics and Heat played Game 3.

C's escape despite bench, & KG's shining minute


Even without Chauncey Billups and, for the most part, Amar'e Stoudemire, the Knicks hung around. That was due to Carmelo Anthony's monster night. But, despite the lack of bench production, the C's pulled off the win thanks to some big plays from Kevin Garnett down the stretch.

Pierce cheering former teammates on from afar


Tony Allen was known as the defensive stopper on the Celtics during his time here on the Celtics. He's so much more than that now on the Memphis Grizzlies.

No Shaq for Game 2


"He's not going to do anything, he's not going to play tomorrow ... Dr. McKeon came to me about an hour ago and said we aren't even going to put him on the floor, we aren't even going to try it ... Now is the time that if you can play, you're going to play. Shaq can't play." -Doc Rivers on Shaquille O'Neal

Ray Comes Through Just in the Knick of Time


It wasn't pretty, but the Boston Celtics escaped the Knicks at the Garden thanks to some late game heroics by Ray Allen. The C's as a whole stepped it up in the second half.

Regular Season in Rear View, Now it Matters


Now that we got those 82 regular season games out of the way, can we play some real basketball now? Plus a piece on Avery Bradley.

Celtics wrap up regular season with a win


The Celtics wrapped up the regular season with a win over the Knicks. It was all the bench, which the Celtics will need to count on in the playoffs too.

Bench Unit to Start tonight


-If you were expecting a preview of the playoffs, you may be disappointed. The Big Four are sitting, the O'Neals are sitting, and Delonte West is sitting. -Your starting lineup is Carlos Arroyo, Von Wafer, Jeff Green, Glen Davis, and Nenad Krstic. -Sasha Pavlovic, Troy Murphy, and Carlos Arroyo will be coming off the bench. -This game will play a big part in determining who rounds out the active roster in the playoffs -- that's about it. -Oh, and Amar'e Stoudemire is reportedly suiting up for the Knicks after missing the last few games with a sprained left ankle. Risky! - Delonte West said he hopes to be able to play for Game 1 on Sunday night. He hasn't tested the ankle yet though. -Jermaine O'Neal said he felt great today after his extended minutes against the Wizards on Monday night. -Jeff Green said games like Monday night and tonight are great confidence builders going forward.

Jermaine O'Neal Waiting for that Confetti


This is Jermaine O'Neal's 15th season in the NBA, but he still has no rings to show for it. Back from knee surgery, he's ready to give it his all, and for once, feel that confetti.

An Injured Shaq, a Rejuvenated J. O'Neal, and a 'Nice' Green


What a tease it was to see Shaq back in a Celtics uniform for such a short time. Jermaine O'Neal (and the Celtics) hopes to last much longer than his "brother". Doc Rivers hopes Jeff Green gets mean.

Shaq hobbles off court in 2nd quarter with right calf strain


It was fun while it lasted, but unfortunately it didn't last long, as Shaquille O'Neal strained his right calf early on in the second quarter and hobbled off the court.
