Celtics Coach Brad Stevens Dunks In Practice

….with the help of a trampoline. But regardless, when do you see a NBA head coach throw down? Like never, right? And ok, it’s not actually like a team practice, but whatever. He dunked. That’s all you need to know.

 

BTW, just so you know, in case you didn’t, Celtics have the best record in the East since January 23rd.

Celtics Top Clippers in OT, 139-134.

Wow, awesome game. And I only saw the OT live.

Down 6 in the OT, they came back and played tough basketball, thanks to some big shots by Evan Turner. He hit a nice hesitation jumper in the paint, got a nice And-1, and another jumper in the lane.

A big three by Sullinger kinda started this run. It was a ballsy play because Isaiah Thomas had what looked like an easy 2 but he kicked it out to the open Sullinger for the 3.

Check out the stat line for Thomas.

Really nice win. Nice bounce back after that disappointing loss to the Bucks.

This team is fun to watch. They might surprise some people out there, but Boston knows what this team can do.

BTW, as Pierce walked off the TD Garden court, for possibly the last time, he had a nice smile on his face. That in itself is like a little bonus win. Always love Pierce.

Warriors Get Bucked

I knew this would happen.

I really though the Celtics would win last night. And they almost did. They took the Warriors to two overtimes and nearly walked away with the W.

But the Bucks had the Warriors on the second half of a back to back, in which the first half was a double OT game.

Here’s my analogy. Indulge me if you will.

JBJ. Doing It All Now

http://teespring.com/air-jackie

He was always a stud fielder. Now in the last week, his bat has come alive.

Yesterday he had 5 hits (2 hrs, 3 doubles), 5 runs, and 7 RBI. Oritz got 7 RBI for the first time in his career earlier this season.

He’s got 15 hits in the last 5 games, he had 7 all season before that.

And he makes Top 10 plays in the field like once a game.

I’m really hoping this kid turns it on like this for the rest of the year.

And a great one from last year

The Best of Pedro Martinez

pedro retired number 45

Tonight is the night. Pedro Martinez is getting his number 45 retired at Fenway Park. He is now among the greats of Bobby Doerr, Joe Cronin, Carl Yastrzemski, Ted Williams, Carlton Fisk, and Jim Rice.

This is a great day for Pedro, and a rare bright spot for us Sox fans, so let us look back at some of Pedro’s finest moments as a Red Sox player.

One of everyone favorite memories, Pedro starting the All Star game at Fenway and just K-ing every body. 5 strikeouts in 2 innings. 1 guy was thrown out. Pedro wished the base runner was safe so he would strike out 6.

Should the Celtics Go After David Lee?

ESPN – David Lee, who is the second-longest tenured player for the Golden State Warriors and as close to Steph Curry as any member of the newly crowned NBA champions, has likely played his last game for the team, league sources told ESPN on Wednesday.

Sources said the Warriors have privately acknowledged to Lee and his agent, Mark Bartelstein, that it would be unfair to the former All-Star to ask him to continue to serve in a limited role next season after Lee accepted his diminished minutes without complaint all season.

_________________________________________________________________________

The Celtics are in need of another big man. Lee is a solid player. I know he didn’t play too much in the finals but he did have a good game when Kerr starting him.

Could This Be Jeff Green’s Year?

Ever since the Perkins trade, which puzzled many at the time, one of the biggest questions has been “When will Jeff Green be the player we know he can be?” He’s always shown flashes of brilliance, like when he dropped 43 on LeBron and he Heat last year in tough 105-103 loss. It showed he can rise to the occasion in big games. But then, he could disappear at times. After that 43 point performance, he tallied only 35 points combined over the next 3 games.

This year though, he’s been off to a great start, averaging 20 points a game, nearly 6 points more than his career average. He’s been playing consistant on a nightly basis, and he’s one of the reasons the Celtic’s are always competitive in their games.

Now, he’s always been able to throw down, and last night he had two great dunks. He’s probably the best dunker the Celtics have had in recent memory. Yeah, Gerald Green (no relation) won the dunk contest but he wasn’t the player that Jeff is. Jeff has a well rounded game.

One of my favorite of his dunks

So hopefully this year, Jeff can keep up the work and help this team finish off some of these games.
