Mirza Teletovic, Rajon Rondo

Except, Rondo didn’t want to deal with Boston’s crazy traffic and opted to take public transportation to the game before helping the C’s eviscerate the Nets, 121-105. Read More »

Video: Celtics’ Jeff Green Hustles For Monster Chase-Down Block Versus Nets

Jeff Green

This is the type of highlight that makes you want so much more from Jeff Green. But that’s the glass half empty take. It’s the preseason – we might as well stay half full while games don’t matter. Watch as Green makes an incredible hustle play by swatting a layup by the Brookyn Nets’ Sergey Karasev into the seats for a huge chase-down block. Read More »

Rajon Rondo

It seems like yesterday that the internet was abuzz with unsubstantiated rumors that Rajon Rondo broke his hand while at a trampoline park.

44-Minute Game Experiment Clocks In At Under Two Hours Of Real Time

Marcus Thornton

The NBA’s 44-minute game experiment came and went today without much fanfare, especially considering the stir of discussion it created earlier this week. We’ll have to wait and see if the league considers the common sentiment of players and coaches that cutting games from the regular season schedule would be more beneficial than shortening the length of them.
