  1. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Bobcats, Sessions end Celtics winning streak

    Feb 12, 2013, 8:36 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Charlotte Bobcats

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while looking at some really uncomfortable Valentines Day photos…. Bobcats 94, Celtics 91: A Celtics team on the second night of a back-to-back where the first game went three overtimes ran into a Bobcats that doesn’t have a lot going for it but…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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,…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Nuggets knock of Thunder in OT

    Jan 21, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. Thursday And-1 links: More Carmelo/Garnett fallout

    Jan 10, 2013, 3:01 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • The punishment has come down, Carmelo Anthony is sitting out the Knicks Thursday…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Dallas makes the Clippers work for it

    Jan 10, 2013, 8:01 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Clippers

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the games yesterday in NBA action. Or, what you missed while listening to an ice record… Spurs 108, Lakers 105: The Lakers went on a 13-2 run in the fourth quarter to make this game interesting down the stretch, but in the end the result was the fifth straight Los…

  13. Uncle Jeff throws down on the Suns, Uncle Drew beats the buzzer against Atlanta (VIDEO)

    Jan 9, 2013, 11:20 PM EDT

    Jeff Green

    Being an uncle is pretty cool. You get to buy your nieces and nephews annoyingly loud toys to passive-aggressively torture your brother or sister. You get to give the kids lots of candy and ice cream and it automatically makes you cool. It’s a pretty easy gig. Dunking on a 7-footer in the NBA, or beating…

  14. Report: Grizzlies testing waters for potential Rudy Gay trade

    Jan 4, 2013, 3:01 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    Memphis is one of those “maybe if everything goes right” contenders. They are not as talented as Oklahoma City or the Los Angeles Clippers, but they have a dominating front line with Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph. In the last couple weeks their elite defense has taken a step back, their already unimpressive offense has…

  15. Top 10 NBA dunks of 2012 (VIDEO)

    Jan 1, 2013, 10:31 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Jared Sullinger

    WIth 2012 officially in the books, it’s time to look back on the top 10 dunks of the past year. And just as we all expected, Byron Mullens makes the list and kicks things off at number 10. Yeah, I don’t know either. But his flying jam down the lane after getting his own rebound…

  16. Report: Celtics, Mavericks among four teams trying to work Cousins trade

    Dec 31, 2012, 10:53 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Harrions Barnes

    Know this — the scenario about to be laid out tells you what DeMarcus Cousins and his people are thinking and hoping for. What it does not do is tell you the reality of the situation. Not in the least. The reality here is a complex dynamic that starts with Cousins firing his long-time agent…

  17. Celtics show promise in Christmas win. Nets… it wasn’t pretty.

    Dec 25, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Jared Sullinger, Andray Blatche

    Boston should be better than a .500 team, which is how they came into Christmas Day. We keep expecting them to have a nice easy win, a jumpstart to start finding their groove. They need to find a team that would roll over and pretty much die for them. Enter the Nets on Christmas. How…

  18. Ainge: “There’s just no excuse for the way we’re playing”

    Dec 21, 2012, 4:17 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rando look on from the bench against the Brooklyn Nets in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    We told you earlier this week that Celtics decision maker Danny Ainge is preaching patience — he is not looking at a roster shakeup. Yet. But don’t confuse that with being happy. Like every Celtics fan right now, he is frustrated with the inconsistent play from a veteran team (no matter what Doc Rivers wants…

  19. As Celtics offense falls off map they search for an identity

    Dec 19, 2012, 11:53 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    It’s been this bad — in the last 10 games the Celtics offense has averaged 96.9 points per 100 possessions (via NBA.com’s own stats), which over the course of the season would be 29th in the NBA. Barely better than what’s left of the Wizards. At the other end, Boston’s defense has been inconsistent (it…

  20. Rivers says Celtics not a veteran team like you think they are

    Dec 18, 2012, 11:59 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Houston Rockets

    As we debated whether or not the Celtics should bring back the band for one more run or break it up and start to rebuild, one question we never discussed was “are the Celtics a veteran team?” Because it seems obvious. But Celtics coach Doc Rivers doesn’t see it that way. Rivers told CSNNE.com these…

  21. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Pierce, Rondo lead Celtics to win

    Dec 13, 2012, 6:57 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while watching the Sandy relief concert and thinking the Who looked really old… Celtics 117, Mavericks 115 (2OT): This game was fun. It entertained. Oh, no it wasn’t pretty at all — Dallas had 27 turnovers — but it had its…

  22. NBA Power Rankings: Heat, Thunder on top, it feels like 2011

    Dec 3, 2012, 3:11 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James celebrates win over Atlanta Hawks with Bosh and Allen during their NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    It’s early in the season, very early, but there are moments it feels line the NBA finals come June could be a rematch of last year — Miami vs. Oklahoma City. And that really shouldn’t be a surprise. Right now those two teams are on top of the PBT power rankings. 1. Heat (12-3, last…

  23. Doc Rivers: “We’re a soft team; we have no toughness”

    Nov 29, 2012, 10:50 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    Wednesday night after another Celtics loss, Doc Rivers was relaying a lesson most of us learned somewhere along the way: It’s not the tough guys that get in fights. The Celtics have lost three of their last five, were pushed around by the Nets and more importantly are a bottom 10 defensive team in the…

  24. Kendrick Perkins wants to guard Rajon Rondo when Thunder face the Celtics

    Nov 23, 2012, 3:01 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo Kendrick Perkins

    Plenty of story lines are in play when the Thunder face the Celtics, as they will Friday night in Boston, due to the 2010 deal between the two teams that saw Kendrick Perkins and Jeff Green trade places. Both players were thought at the time to be untouchable members of each team’s core, with Perkins…

  25. Jeff Green finally to face former team… and he yawns

    Nov 23, 2012, 10:42 AM EDT

    Jeff Green, Al Jefferson

    Last January, when Kendrick Perkins faced the Celtics for the first time since they traded him away, Jeff Green was home. Recovering from heart surgery, which was a pretty good excuse to skip the game. But that changes Friday when Green takes on the team that moved him in a still-controversial 2010 deadline deal when…
