    Heat forward James reacts after making a basket during their NBA basketball game against the Celtics in Boston

    On a night with some big games and big lines — Stephen Curry had 30 points and just misses out — two of our three stars come from one game. One of the best, most entertaining games of the season. We couldn’t leave either of these guys off. Third Star: Wilson Chandler (35 points, 9…

  2. Jeff Green, Celtics put up fight but LeBron, Heat get another win

    Mar 19, 2013, 12:20 AM EDT

    Celtics' Green drives to the basket past Heat's Haslem in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Boston

    This felt like a playoff game. Like last year’s Eastern Conference finals — it was chippy, there were some big highlights, and there was a very loud crowd fully into the game. It was a game that went down to the final seconds. And just like last year’s playoffs the Miami Heat beat the Boston…

    Mar 18, 2013, 10:54 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    The Celtics came out against the streaking Heat on Monday night like it was a playoff game. The crowd certainly sounded like it was. Boston had guys like Jeff Green who stepped up big time. And then there was this ridiculous chase-down block by Avery Bradley. He ran down Norris Cole and makes a great…

    Mar 12, 2013, 6:24 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce

    Doc Rivers has talked about getting his key players some rest down the stretch, something he has done in seasons past. Tuesday night it will be Paul Pierce’s turn, reports A. Sherrod Blakely at CSNNE.com. Pierce will sit out vs. the Bobcats, likely meaning the Celtics will lean heavily on Jeff Green. Pierce has started…

  8. Three Stars of the Night: Guys that got (or almost got) their team wins

    Mar 7, 2013, 2:11 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Lots of close games, lots of crazy buzzer beaters on Wednesday night. But it wasn’t just the Jeff Greens and Klay Thompsons that got their team wins, it was others like the three guys below. Except for the Third Star, he tried but got undone by some guy named LeBron. Third Star: Nikola Vucevic (25…

  9. Jeff Green hits game-winning layup, completes Celtics improbable comeback (VIDEO)

    Mar 7, 2013, 12:32 AM EDT

    Jeff Green

    With a little over four minutes left in this game, the Pacers were up nine and seemingly in control of this game. But that Jeff Green layup with .05 on the clock capped an 11-0 Celtics run to win the game 83-81. It’s a play that happened because everyone on the planet expected Kevin Garnett…

  10. Celtics sit Kevin Garnett Friday night against Suns

    Celtics' Pierce, Garnett and Allen sit on the bench during their loss to the Heat during Game 6 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoffs in Boston

  12. Report: Celtics exploring Josh Smith trade ideas (which might mean Pierce)

    Feb 18, 2013, 11:21 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Atlanta Hawks

    If one big name is going to move at the NBA trade deadline Thursday it is Josh Smith. The question is where — the Buck, Rockets, Spurs, Nets and… really it might be faster to list the teams that have not had contact with the Hawks about Smith. Now comes the report that the Celtics…

  13. It’s not pretty but Celtics will take it, rally to beat Bulls

    Feb 13, 2013, 11:23 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics

    You know how the last day before you go on a much-anticipated vacation you are pretty much useless at work? Your body is at the job but your mind is doing tequila shots in Cancun. That was pretty much the Bulls at the Celtics Wednesday. It’s ugly. Joan Rivers without plastic surgery ugly. This is…

  15. Jeff Green throws down two monster dunks on the Magic (VIDEO)

    Feb 2, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Jeff Green

    Despite the recent troubles in Boston, where the Celtics have seen Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger go down in the same week with season-ending injuries, the team managed to keep it together enough to take care of a slumping Orlando Magic team on Friday. The play off Jeff Green was a huge reason why. Green…

  16. Celtics players (and LeBron) react to Rondo’s ACL injury

    Jan 27, 2013, 10:30 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    Nobody wants to see a player go down with an ACL injury, particularly a fantastic player like Rajon Rondo. Not true basketball fans, who will be robbed of the chance to watch Rondo control the game for a year (and really longer because it takes a while to return to your old self. Not NBA…

  17. Celtics win over Heat silver lining on dark, cloudy day

    Jan 27, 2013, 7:31 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce

    Boston beat the Miami Heat 100-98 and they did it without Rajon Rondo. It’s a good omen, because the Celtics are going to have to hang on to a playoff spot in the East with more gritty games like this one because Rajon Rondo is out for the season with a torn ACL. Boston did…

  18. Boston’s offense is problem, fixes may have to come from within

    Jan 25, 2013, 12:39 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers, Rajon Rondo

    Boston is two games below .500 and it’s become evident this isn’t a problem isn’t gong away easily. Boston’s offense is 21st in the NBA scoring just one point per possession (100 per 100 possessions, via Hoopdata, well below the league average of 102.7). Thing is, that’s slightly better than the 98.7 the Celtics averaged…

  19. Report: Celtics interested in J.J. Redick to help shooting

    Jan 25, 2013, 9:59 AM EDT

    J.J. Redick

    Despite GM Danny Ainge’s protestations that the Celtics wouldn’t be shaking things up at the deadline, the loss to the New York Knicks at home Thursday was a sign they may want to shake things up at the deadline. Their biggest need is a big and help scoring some points inside (Timofey Mozgov?) but they…

  20. Opponents say Boston Celtics do miss Ray Allen

    Jan 23, 2013, 8:05 PM EDT

    Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    When Ray Allen left Boston to go to Miami, mixed in amongst the cries of “traitor” and Kevin Garnett losing Allen’s phone number were a lot of Celtics fans saying the future Hall of Famer would not be missed. Which actually made some sense on paper — they brought in Jason Terry and Courtney Lee,…

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while taking out your frustrations in the “rage room”… Nuggets 121, Thunder 118 (OT): This was the kind of game that fans find entertaining and makes a coach cringe. Entertaining because it was close most of the way, was played at a fast…

  22. Doc Rivers: We need to find right player combos “or we’re going to get some guys out of here”

    Jan 21, 2013, 1:55 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Boston Celtics

    Doc Rivers is frustrated. And he should be — his Celtics were just plain bad in a loss to the Pistons on Sunday. They shot just 39.8 percent and were handled pretty easily by the Pistons. After the game, Rivers let those frustrations spill over when talking to the media, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of…

  23. After five-straight wins, “content” Ainge suggests roster changes not likely

    Jan 14, 2013, 11:48 AM EDT

    Jason Terry, Paul Pierce

    It’s amazing what a few wins in a row can do. While rumors floated around that Celtics GM Danny Ainge was listening to offers for the Celtics talisman Paul Pierce, the team got Avery Bradley back and started playing better defense.The result has been five straight wins and a renewed sense of confidence around the…
