Tonight the Celtics have an amazing opportunity to eliminate the Miami Heat on the parquet floor and advance to the NBA Finals for the third time in the New Big Three Era. It will be by no means an easy... Continue reading
The Celtics responded from a tough Game 2 loss on the road with a scintillating Game 3 win at home to make it a 2-1 series. There were several fantastic plays and moments from the game. Check out the highlights... Continue reading

The 2012 Eastern Conference Finals begin tonight in Miami and the Celtics might be just where they love to be: the underdogs. During the New Big Three Era, they have been here before. Many picked them to defeat the Hawks... Continue reading
The Celtics will face the Miami Heat tonight in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Before they do, here are a handful of highlights from Game 7 against the Philadelphia 76ers, one in which it truly required grit and... Continue reading
Paul Pierce put on a performance for the ages in Game 2 at Philips Arena in Atlanta to lead the Celtics to a huge victory to tie up the series at 1-1. The Celtics are once again tied at 1-1... Continue reading
The Celtics unleashed a handful of new video montages on the jumbotron prior to their two home games this past weekend. While we already showed you two of them, I forgot to include the one below. It's an awesome montage... Continue reading
In a pivotal Game 4, the Celtics looked to defend their home court and did they ever. The C's looked locked in on defense and loaded up on offense right from the opening tap. Save for extended fourth quarter garbage... Continue reading
The Celtics took a 2-1 series lead in one of the ugliest playoff wins you'll ever see, especially at home with a crowd just waiting to erupt. Rajon Rondo engineered his 20th career triple-double finishing with 17 points, 14 rebounds... Continue reading
Now that just about every NBA writer and blogger have (rightfully) blasted Rajon Rondo for his boneheaded emotional eruption in Game 1 against the Atlanta Hawks, the most important aspect of the situation now becomes: how does Rondo respond? Losing... Continue reading
Earlier we posted highlights of Paul Pierce's masterful performance and now we'll provide some other GreenLights from last night's scintillating win at Atlanta. Keyon Dooling's Threes: Avery Bradley's Defense (steals and a few nice blocks): Marquis Daniels' Dunk: A Pair... Continue reading
During his 14 year career as a Boston Celtic, Paul Pierce has given us lucky Celtics fans quite a selection of memorable performances to live through (and re-live through). Last night against the Atlanta Hawks was another one that can... Continue reading
Throughout the recently completed 2011-2012 66 game lockout shortened season, Rajon Rondo did a little trickery right off the opening tip. The Celtics didn't win every jump ball, but when they did, Rondo would do a quick little trick with... Continue reading
Towards the end of halftime of last night's win against the Orlando Magic, the 1961-1962 Celtics were honored in a mini-celebration. It was 50 years ago that team won the franchise's 4th consecutive and 5th overall title. You know the... Continue reading
It didn't matter if you were aware of it or not, but you were all invited to Greg Stiemsma's weekend block party. The "Stiemboat," as KG likes to call him, took his shot blocking talents on a three games-in-three-cities-in-three-nights road... Continue reading
Because it guarantees you the seed not the home court advantage. They have to tie the 5th seed (ATL, ORL) at best to earn home court.

The Celtics rebounded nicely last night defeating the Nets, following an abysmal loss in Toronto which yielded very little effort. There was a lot of solid plays to take from this game and they are highlighted below. About the only... Continue reading
With just over a minute to go in overtime of a grueling game against the Atlanta Hawks, Brandon Bass landed awkwardly on his foot, which looked like he sprained an ankle at first. He stayed on the floor, seemingly in... Continue reading

The Celtics had a day off to simmer and stew under the boiling heat of Doc's post-game comments following the loss to the Bulls in Chicago. No, Doc didn't say the C's were exactly hot but rather the exact opposite.... Continue reading
After completing one of their best all-around performances of the season, the Celtics defeated the Minnesota TimberWolves and took control of first place in the Atlantic Division. They have a tough stretch of games coming up, but to me this... Continue reading
When it comes to creating lists or ranking things like "Best Death Metal Songs of the 1990's" or "Biggest Stiffs Ever to Play in the NBA," there is always room for subjective debate. People love lists. They love rankings. There... Continue reading
Last night's game against the Atlanta Hawks felt more like a street brawl than it did a basketball game at times. It was ugly to watch for bout 3 1/2 quarters where both teams turned the ball over and couldn't... Continue reading
The LA Clippers are one of the most entertaining teams in the NBA and for good reason. They dunk. A lot. Chris Paul tosses a ton of alley-oops to Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan and it's amazing to watch. Well... Continue reading
Amidst incessant and ridiculous trade rumors, Rajon Rondo produced his 17th career triple-double including his fourth this season alone. It was also his third in the last three weeks. This one was legendary, a monster version of sorts. Registering 18... Continue reading

Typically in the GreenLab we go over key plays that Doc diagrams out of timeouts or simply on the fly sets. Yesterday's instant classic of a game featured several memorable moments but one thing that has gone a bit overlooked... Continue reading
The other night against Cleveland Rajon Rondo put up quite a stink bomb against the Cavs. He missed all six shots he took and did register 11 assists, but it was not a good game by any means. Last night... Continue reading
