Boston Celtics

  1. Kobe includes Rajon Rondo when discussing future Hall of Famers who played for 2010 Celtics

    Jan 18, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant is still a spectator these days, not expecting to return from the fractured bone in his knee until sometime in February. With his Lakers taking on the Celtics in Boston on Friday, memories of better times were brought to the surface, and Bryant was among those sad to see the Paul Pierce and…

  2. PBT Podcast: Is Lance Stephenson an All-Star?

    Jan 17, 2014, 5:49 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets vs Indiana Pacers

    Lance Stephenson‘s 28 points on the Knicks — and how he plays with a real flair — has a lot of people around the NBA asking if he is an All-Star? That’s the first topic in the latest edition of the ProBasketballTalk Podcast, featuring myself and Brett Pollakoff of PBT, plus Eytan Shander of NBC…

  3. Rondo returns to Celtics Friday. With a minutes restriction, but he returns.

    Jan 17, 2014, 11:42 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Vs. Boston Celtics At TD Garden

    Rajon Rondo is back. For about five minutes a quarter, but he is back. After missing basically a year with a torn ACL, the Celtics’ All-Star point guard is set to return Friday against the Lakers to the Boston lineup — a lineup that is very different than the one he was last on the…

  4. Boston Celtics assistant coach Jamie Young to run Boston Marathon

    Jan 16, 2014, 2:45 PM EDT

    Boston Red Sox Victory Parade

    Jamie Young is from Indiana and attended college in Illinois, but he’s definitely a Massachusetts guy now. Young is in his 13th season with the Boston Celtics, lasting through the Jim O’Brien and Doc Rivers regimes and surviving into the Brad Stevens era. He’s held a variety of roles and is now an assistant coach.…

  5. The Extra Pass: Vince Carter had a front row seat for the “Miracle on Hudson” plane crash

    Jan 16, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    US Airways Passenger Jet Crashes Into Hudson River By NYC

    LOS ANGELES — “They have to be shooting a movie or something.” That was Vince Carter’s first thought. Five years ago yesterday, the morning of Jan. 15, 2009, Carter woke up in the bedroom of his home in Edgewater New Jersey, and was lazily sitting on his bed just looking out the window of his…

  6. Wednesday night NBA grades: Greg Oden is back — that is a story worth celebrating

    Jan 16, 2014, 1:57 AM EDT

    Miami Heat vs Washington Wizards

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wondering what kind of Little League coach sues one of his 14-year-old players… Greg Oden, Miami Heat. He made it back, and that is the story. Tonight he had six points on 2-of-3 shooting in 8:24 on the court — what matters is that…

  7. Keith Bogans ‘excused’ from team activities with Celtics

    Jan 15, 2014, 11:28 PM EDT

    Keith Bogan

    Keith Bogans is a veteran playing in his 11th NBA season, and as such, isn’t exactly thrilled to be riding the bench as part of a rebuilding situation with the Boston Celtics. Bogans vented publicly and extensively a couple of weeks back about his role with the team, and while it was viewed as nothing…

  8. Does trading Joel Anthony mean Heat are going after Andrew Bynum? Maybe.

    Jan 15, 2014, 7:59 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers

    It was obvious why Golden State wanted Jordan Crawford as the centerpiece of the three-team trade that went down Wednesday — Stephen Curry has played more minutes than any point guard in the league this season and they need to get him some rest the second half of the season (not to mention the whole…

  9. PBT Extra: Talking trade, Warriors with CSNBayArea’s Monte Poole

    Jan 15, 2014, 6:58 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Orlando Magic

    The Golden State Warriors made a trade Wednesday to get Jordan Crawford out of Boston, upgrading their depth behind Stephen Curry — the kind of trade contenders make. On today’s PBT Extra myself and Monte Poole, the Warriors insider for CSNBayArea.com discuss that trade and what it means for Golden State — he thinks this sets…

  10. Boston assigns Rajon Rondo to D-League but just for workout

    Jan 15, 2014, 1:48 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    There had been talk that the Boston Celtics would send Rajon Rondo to their D-League affiliate for a tune-up game, but that’s not what is happening here. Rondo is just traveling a long way for a workout. Boston officially assigned Rondo to the D-League’s Maine Red Claws on Wednesday but that is not likely to…

  11. Lance Stephenson’s alter ego “Sir Lancelot” wants you to vote for his man for All-Star Game (VIDEO)

    Jan 15, 2014, 12:59 PM EDT

    Lance Stephenson

    Sir Lancelot is emphatic. If nothing else. A lot of players have gone to the Web with attempts at viral videos to get you to vote for them for the All-Star Game (Ty Lawson in Denver was the latest) but most are about as funny as Carrot Top. Lance Stephenson hit it out of the…

  12. Report: Warriors add Jordan Crawford for guard depth in three-team trade with Celtics, Heat

    Jan 15, 2014, 12:28 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics Jordan Crawford goes up for the jump shot in front of Toronto Raptors John Lucas III in Toronto

    Golden State has been looking to add depth behind Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson all season — the offense has been down just slightly this season, and Warriors missed the spark Jarrett Jack brought off the bench last season (not to mention wanting to get Curry some reduced minutes in the second half of the…

  13. Report/rumor: Boston Celtics close to trading Jordan Crawford

    Jan 15, 2014, 9:50 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan, Jordan Crawford, Blake Griffin

    Rajon Rondo is returning soon, so the Boston Celtics must… Nothing, really. I guess they’ll have to move Keith Bogans to the inactive list, but that’s really the extent of it. Considering Bogans is excused from the team for personal reasons and rarely played prior to that, the move has no significance. The Celtics don’t…

  14. Celtics’ Jerryd Bayless gets warned for flopping (VIDEO)

    Jan 15, 2014, 9:20 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    Jerryd Bayless come on down, you’re the next contestant on “getting a league warning for flopping.” Who knows, maybe Bayless was just “LeBroning.” Either way, the league gave him an official warning Tuesday. The incident occurred Monday night (Jan. 13), when the Celtics were playing the Rockets. Jeremy Lin was bringing the ball up court…

  15. Rajon Rondo tweet hints he will return Friday vs. Lakers… in a very Rondo way

    Jan 14, 2014, 8:45 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Boston Celtics

    We passed along a report last week that said Boston’s Rajon Rondo was targeting a return Jan. 17 — this Friday against the rival Los Angeles Lakers. A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com also said that date was the goal. Rondo basically confirmed that on twitter Monday night — but in a very Rondo way. 29,233,380…

  16. Pelicans’ Ryan Anderson out at least two months, could need surgery

    Jan 13, 2014, 11:02 PM EDT

    Ryan Anderson

    It looked like things were not good when Ryan Anderson had to be carried off the court on a stretcher. We knew things were bad when the Pelicans said he would be out indefinitely with a herniated disc in his back. Now comes the news that Anderson will be out at least two months, and…

  17. PBT NBA Power Rankings: New York teams rising but Pacers on top still

    Jan 13, 2014, 2:32 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors vs Indiana Pacers

    Here are the weekly PBT power rankings, with some improving teams out of New York. For you fans in Dallas, Denver, Phoenix, Minnesota and Memphis — teams with dreams of the Western Conference playoffs — know that the pace right now is 47-48 wins just to get the 8 seed. Plan accordingly.   1. Pacers…

  18. Stephen Curry drains game winner to beat Celtics (VIDEO)

    Jan 11, 2014, 7:58 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Golden State Warriors

    I’m feeling a little prophetic. It was late in the fourth quarter Friday night and Boston’s Jeff Green had just made a nice play, driving toward the rim and hitting the little five-foot running jumper to tie the game against Golden State at 97-97. But that left 11 seconds for the Warriors and I had…

  19. Report: Rajon Rondo plans return Jan. 17 against Lakers

    Jan 10, 2014, 5:54 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Boston Celtics

    Boston is 13-23 this season and has been a solid defensive team — signs that Brad Stevens can coach at the NBA level (Brandon Bass told PBT he was impressed with the young mentor). The question has been: How good will the Celtics be with Rajon Rondo in the lineup? We may find out sooner…

  20. Stephen Curry moves past Chris Paul as starter in latest NBA All-Star balloting

    Jan 9, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    We can take Chris Paul’s brilliance as a point guard for granted because he’s the guy throwing the lobs, not the guy finishing the highlight play. Paul can score and take over a game, but his mastery of the point guard play is subtler than that — he takes over games by dictating flow and…

  21. Timberwolves’ video campaigns for your Kevin Love All-Star Vote

    Jan 9, 2014, 1:26 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Kevin Love is going to be an All-Star, the coaches will select him as a reserve without a doubt. But the Timberwolves want you to vote him in as a starter. In the last vote update from the league, Love was about 22,000 votes behind Blake Griffin for the final starting spot in the Western…

  22. The Extra Pass: The Raptors press pause, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Toronto Raptors vs Indiana Pacers

    When Masai Ujiri jumped from the Denver Nuggets to the Toronto Raptors to take over as general manager, the objective was clear. Ujiri was to do what he does best: tear it down, and try to salvage as much value as possible from the mistakes made by the previous regime. Ujiri hasn’t failed to live…

  23. Blake Griffin does bad, bad thing to Kris Humphries (VIDEO)

    Jan 9, 2014, 1:24 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics  v Los Angeles Clippers

    Daaaaaaaaamn. A couple of times a season Blake Griffin just puts some poor defender in a poster and there is nothing they can do about it. Boston’s Kris Humphries, come on down, you’re the next contestant on “Blake Griffin’s highlight reel.” I feel for Humphries, he has enough embarrassing videos out there on the Web…

  24. Whether with Celtics or youth and fitness, Brandon Bass is trying to lead by example

    Jan 8, 2014, 2:44 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    It’s a tough year in Boston. Players are fighting through snow banks to get to a practice facility or games, but once inside it doesn’t feel a lot warmer. They are part of a 13-22 team that has lost eight of nine and as of today wouldn’t even make the playoffs is a sad Eastern…

  25. Jared Sullinger ejected for two flagrant fouls in 24 seconds (VIDEO)

    Jan 8, 2014, 12:15 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Chicago Bulls

    On the bright side, Jared Sullinger was efficient in picking up flagrant fouls and getting ejected. The league is all about efficiency these days. The Celtics’ Sullinger was ejected from Boston’s blowout loss to the Nuggets Tuesday night for picking up two third-quarter technicals in the span of 24 seconds (you can see them above).…
