    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).…

  3. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Even without Westbrook Thunder take top spot

    Dec 30, 2013, 4:51 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Oklahoma City Thunder

    It’s legitimate to question how well Oklahoma City will fair in the roughly 27 games they will play without Russell Westbrook, but so far so good and that slides the to the top of the last power rankings of 2013. 1. Thunder (25-5, Last Week No. 2). They won all their games last week, but…

    Boston Celtics Jared Sullinger reacts as he loses control of the ball against the Miami Heat in the first half of their NBA basketball game at TD Garden in Boston

    After this play, you just thought it was the Celtics’ night. Turns out not so much (the Pistons came back to win). Still, this was a fantastic execution by the Celtics. With o.2 seconds left on the clock the only way to score was a tip in, and Jared Sullinger rolls to the basket (without…

  6. Avery Bradley hits a shot from behind the backboard to beat shot clock (VIDEO)

    Dec 3, 2013, 9:16 PM EDT

    Amir Johnson, Avery Bradley

    We’ve seen shots launched over the backboard from behind it made before, but none of them were quite like this. Midway through the first quarter following an airball from Jared Sullinger, Avery Bradley chased down the rebound as the ball was seemingly headed out of bounds. Not only did he corral it, but he had…

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Dirk Nowitzki, welcome to the club. That’s the club of star players who have gotten a warning from the league about flopping.

  10. Paul Millsap throws one down on Jared Sullinger (VIDEO)

    Nov 24, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    Chuck Hayes, Paul Millsap

    Atlanta Hawks forward Paul Millsap isn’t known as a huge dunker around the league. He’s a guy who does most of his work under the rim, not above it. Still, if he builds up enough momentum, Millsap is big enough and athletic enough to dish out some damage. If you see Millsap rumbling towards the…

  11. Report: Boston willing to do bad contract swap with Knicks

    Nov 18, 2013, 11:15 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v New York Knicks

    There will be no Rajon Rondo for Iman Shumpert and pieces deal going down between the Celtics and Knicks — Boston GM Danny Ainge rightfully laughed that one off. But there might be a Celtics/Knicks deal that Boston officials would consider — a swap of bad contracts. Chris Broussard of ESPN threw up this tweet.…

    Nov 12, 2013, 6:46 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Memphis Grizzlies

    During the Celtics run the past four games to the top of the Atlantic Division (that it only takes four games speaks volumes about that division right now) Jared Sullinger has played well off the bench. On the season he is averaging 11.3 points a game. But he took a hard charge Monday night against…

  14. Don’t look now but Celtics have won four in a row, lead Atlantic Division

    Nov 12, 2013, 11:20 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics

    The Boston Celtics have won four in a row, improved to .500 (4-4), and right now that is good enough to lead the Atlantic Division (tied with Philadelphia). After a 0-4 start I didn’t think I’d be writing that sentence. It certainly beats even Celtics’ fans expectations. There are things we can pick apart with…

  15. Kevin Love among four NBA players to get flop warning

    Nov 4, 2013, 2:50 PM EDT

  17. Domestic violence charges against Celtics’ Sullinger dropped

    Oct 28, 2013, 4:58 PM EDT

    Jared Sullinger

    We tell you when these cases come up, it’s only right we also tell you when they go away. Which is what happened in the case of Celtics second-year player Jared Sullinger. On Aug. 31 he had a fight with his girlfriend and a few days later he was arrested and eventually arraigned on charges…

  18. Final seconds of Celtics/Raptors was…. pure preseason

    Oct 17, 2013, 11:55 AM EDT

    Just because the games are meaningless doesn’t mean there isn’t some drama — there are close games and exciting endings in the preseason, too. Look at the end of the Celtics/Raptors game from Wednesday. After a Celtics bucket on a nice cut and finish by Jared Sullinger, it’s a two point game with 11 seconds…

    Sep 24, 2013, 11:24 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Boston Celtics

    Well, the good news is Avery Bradley is healthy and ready for training camp to start. That’s particularly good because he could be playing the point for the first couple months of the season, sharing time with rookie Phil Pressey. All that because Rajon Rondo could be out until December. Celtics GM Danny Ainge was…

  21. Expect to see some Kris Humphries as center in Boston

    Sep 23, 2013, 9:02 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v New York Knicks

    Kris Humphries isn’t a center but he can play the spot in a pinch — last season in Brooklyn he played 2 percent of the team’s minutes at the five (according to 82games.com). He was about average on offense, a little below average on defense, but he’s not terrible at the spot. The season before…

    Charlotte Bobcats v Boston Celtics

    Last season: For the first half of the season Boston — with veterans like Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce — looked like that team everyone wants to avoid in the first round.

    Sep 13, 2013, 8:39 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Brooklyn Nets, Kris Humphries

    There’s far less of a sense of urgency for Rajon Rondo to return to the Celtics lineup than there was for say, Derrick Rose to try to get back on the court for the Bulls last season. We may see a similar vibe around the Celtics to the one we saw in Chicago, though, at…
