Marquis Daniels

  1. Ten free agents still out on the market

    Sep 3, 2013, 9:16 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls shooting guard Hamilton questions a call against the Charlotte Bobcats during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Charlotte

    At this point, the free agent cupboard is pretty bare, and a number of teams have filled out their rosters anyway. Let’s just be honest — if you’re still on the free agent market there is a reason. Still, there are a few teams still looking to add player 14/15 to the roster off minimum…

  2. Larry Sanders ejected yet again in Bucks’ loss to Pacers (VIDEO)

    Mar 22, 2013, 9:51 PM EST

    Marquis Daniels, Larry Sanders

    Larry Sanders of the Bucks needs an attitude adjustment if he’s ever going to reach his full potential as an NBA player. It’s unclear if the current people on the Milwaukee Bucks coaching staff are the right men for the job, but what is painfully obvious is that Sanders is out of control, and his…

  3. Brandon Jennings’ three seals Bucks win over Celtics (VIDEO)

    Dec 2, 2012, 2:00 PM EST

    Brandon Jennings, Ben Uzoh

    The Celtics were playing in Milwaukee on Saturday without Rajon Rondo, who was serving the second game of his two-game suspension for starting the altercation with the Nets’ Kris Humphries on Wednesday. Boston won the first without Rondo in blowout fashion over the Blazers on Friday, and was on pace to do it again after…

  4. Celtics drop NBA’s preseason opener to Turkish team 97-91

    Oct 5, 2012, 6:00 PM EST

    ilkan Karaman, Brandon Bass

    Don’t read anything into the final score. Yes, the Celtics dropped their preseason opener 97-91 to Fenerbahce Ulker in Istanbul, Turkey. No, at times it was not really pretty — stretches of weak rebounding, too many turnovers and an offense that had fits and starts — but what do you expect in your first preseason…

  5. Report: Marquis Daniels agrees to one-year deal with Bucks

    Sep 20, 2012, 9:02 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Three

    Looks like veteran swingman Marquis Daniels is going to provide a little depth for the Milwaukee Bucks this year. Daniels, who has been working out in Milwaukee the past week, has agreed to a one-year deal with the Bucks, according to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe. While officially the terms of the deal are…

  6. NBA Season Preview: Boston Celtics

    Sep 19, 2012, 1:58 PM EST

    Celtics' Garnett talks with Rondo during a time out against Knicks in the second half during their NBA basketball game in New York

    Last season: They went 39-27 and won the Atlantic Division, which was nice but in Boston division titles are not how a team is measured. They handled the Hawks as expected in the first round of the playoffs, then in the second round ran into a plucky but inexperienced Sixers team and Boston won in…

  7. Marquis Daniels, Rasual Butler trying to catch on with Bucks

    Sep 18, 2012, 2:59 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Three

    The Milwaukee Bucks have one open roster spot they are likely to fill. And that will attract players this time of year like uncovered watermelon will attract ants at a picnic. Veteran swingman Marquis Daniels, who last season didn’t get off the Celtics bench all that much (just over 6 minutes a game in the…

  8. What was with Miami’s final play? A Wade isolation three? Ugh.

    Jun 4, 2012, 12:38 PM EST

    Dwyane Wade

    Dwyane Wade is shooting 29.2 percent from three in the playoffs. Which is better than he shot during the regular season. It is not what he does well. So the fact Miami’s final play of overtime devolved into a Wade pull-up three to win it was poor. Bad design, not great execution, just not putting…

  9. Celtics-Heat Game 4: Boston out executes Heat, evens series 2-2

    Jun 4, 2012, 1:05 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Four

    Boston owned the first half with a sharp offense. Miami played defense for the first time since their plane landed in Boston in the second half and tied it up. But with everything on the line at the end of the game and in overtime it came down to execution, and the veteran Celtics were…

  10. Celtics-Heat Game 4: The bizarre development of the Boston offensive juggernaut

    Jun 3, 2012, 2:00 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Two

    It makes no sense, you understand. We’re talking about throwing away not just the stats, forget the stats. We’ve seen it. We’ve seen the Boston offense not only struggle, but look absolutely apoplectic for six months. That Sixers series was something out of a Rob Zombie film on offense. It wasn’t just gross, it was…

  11. Celtics-Heat Game 4: Celtics can survive a LeBron onslaught, can Heat survive another Rondomination?

    Jun 2, 2012, 5:42 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Here’s the secret to this series, and the Celtics’ postseason in general. Kevin Garnett getting points off the pick and pop and in the post over Ronny Turiaf and yelling and barking and cursing is nice. Paul Pierce getting an inefficient number of points per FGA is fine. Ray Allen hitting some in-between freezeouts is…

  12. Rondo gets some help, LeBron doesn’t so Celtics win Game 3

    Jun 2, 2012, 12:23 AM EST

    Heat Celtics Basketball

    Rajon Rondo didn’t put up 44 points in Game 3 because he didn’t have to — he had help this time. But if the Heat were going to win Friday night LeBron James would have needed to put up huge numbers because his teammates didn’t bother to show up until the fourth quarter. The result…

  13. Celtics, Heat Game 2: Boston needs to get some buckets

    May 30, 2012, 5:27 PM EST

    Boston Celtics' Rondo, Garnett, Allen and Pierce speak during a timeout during Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoff series in Miami

    Everyone is focused on Rajon Rondo’s comment that those driving Heat players — particularly Dwyane Wade and LeBron James — “have to hit the deck, too.” Because Boston had a big problem in Game 1 and Boston’s mindset when they have a problem is to fix it by tightening up their fantastic defense. But the…

  14. Expect Ray Allen to play Wednesday night in Game 2

    May 30, 2012, 8:04 AM EST

    Ray Allen

    Doc Rivers may have thought about sitting Ray Allen, may have talked about it with the media, but you didn’t really expect it to happen, did you? Officially the call will be made on game day, as Rivers told A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. Allen doesn’t want any part of that, he wants to play.…

  15. NBA admits blown call at end of Hawks loss to Celtics

    May 11, 2012, 10:31 PM EST

    Boston Celtics Kevin Garnett celebrates after regaining posession of the ball in front of Atlanta Hawks Al Horford during the second half of Game 6 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff basketball series in Boston

    Sorry Hawks fans, this sucks. And there is no recourse. The NBA has admitted referees blew call in the final seconds Thursday that could have changed the outcome of the Hawks Game 6 loss to Boston that eliminated them. If you were watching the TNT broadcast you heard the announcing crew confused by the call…

  16. Mickael Pietrus injured after hard fall, released from hospital

    Mar 24, 2012, 12:15 PM EST

    Mickael Pietrus

    UPDATE March 24, 12:15 pm: This has to be taken as good news — Pietrus stayed behind the team and spent the night in Philadelphia, but not in the hospital. He now has been cleared to return to Boston, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. Which is very good news. He may miss a game…

  17. Boston’s best game still not enough to beat Thunder

    Jan 17, 2012, 12:57 AM EST

    Russell Westbrook, Rajon Rondo

    The good news: The return of Kendrick Perkins and the challenge to match up to one of NBA’s elite teams in the Oklahoma City Thunder got the Celtics to play their best game of the season. The bad news: Oklahoma City 97, Boston 88. Maybe the highlight for Boston fans was the video tribute to…

  18. Boston fights back but Miami relentless, too much for C’s

    Dec 28, 2011, 12:11 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    Boston would not get steamrolled. You’ve got to give them that. When Dallas found themselves getting overwhelmed early by the aggressive and up-tempo version of the Heat on Christmas Day, the Mavs rolled over and played dead. Not Boston. They scrapped and zoned all the way back to make it a game. But in the…

  19. Doc Rivers: Paul Pierce out Tuesday against Heat

    Dec 27, 2011, 3:36 PM EST

    Paul Pierce

    Beating the Miami Heat is a challenge anyway, but Boston is going to have to do it without Paul Pierce on Tuesday night. Doc Rivers confirmed that, reports A. Sherrod Blakely at CSNNE.com. That means Sasha Pavlovic gets the start and Marquis Daniels will get a lot of run. Pavlovic talked about getting to guard…

  20. Five things we learned watching the NBA on Christmas

    Dec 26, 2011, 1:00 PM EST

    Heat forward James and guard Wade laugh during the closing minutes against the Mavericks in Dallas, Texas

    The NBA gave five Christmas day presents to the fans… which were really more like belated birthday gifts disguised as Christmas gifts because we should have opened the NBA season on Nov. 1. But we’ll forgive and move on, like we do with family around the holidays. We’re just glad to have the NBA back.…

  21. Knick show better poise, execution in clutch to beat Celtics

    Dec 25, 2011, 3:49 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    If we told you first thing this morning that the team that executed better at the end, that showed the more poise under pressure — and after the whistle — was going to win the season opener between the Knicks and Celtics, we all would have thought it would be the veteran combo from Boston.…

  22. 5 Things to Watch, Celtics-Knicks: A good ol’ fashioned Christmas brawl at the bowery

To get you pumped, ready, and primed for the start of the 2011-2012 NBA season, we give you five things to keep an eye on today in Celtics-Knicks. To get you pumped:   Not just an old-fashioned love song. The Knicks didn’t put…

  23. Doc Rivers doesn’t expect Paul Pierce to play on Christmas

    Dec 23, 2011, 6:35 PM EST

    Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce reacts to a call by the officials in Boston

    We’re a long way away from the Chicken Little “the sky is falling” predictions about the Celtics season coming true, but this isn’t a good start. Paul Pierce didn’t practice on Friday and Doc Rivers sounded less than optimistic he would be able to go in the Celtics season opener Sunday against the Knicks, reports…

  25. Paul Pierce to miss preseason game… maybe opening day?

    Dec 20, 2011, 4:13 PM EST

    Paul Pierce

    Paul Pierce has a right heel injury, one that will keep him out of Wednesday’s preseason game against the Raptors. But a veteran missing a preseason game is not going to turn any heads. But him missing the season opener against the Knicks would. It is possible, the Celtics are admitting. Here are the cryptic…
