We've got 9 minutes to go and a three-point game. Does preseason get any better than this? I think not.

I was about to post about how the second half looked like it was going to be a long slog, and then... Rajon Rondo did his thing: An alley-oop for O'Bryant, and then a clean steal and a dunk with a fast-charging Sam Delambert trailing. Interesting backstory to how the Celtics got Rondo in the draft...

Bill Walker , the second-round pick out of Kansas State has to be in the slam dunk contest. Has to. First he took a 3/4 court alley-oop from Gabe Pruitt and threw down a mesmerizing jam. Then he went baseline and dunked on Theo Ratliff . That's 6-foot-10 two-time All Defensive Team Theo Ratliff. By...

It must be awesome to have a crowd chanting your name, but that's not how you want to respond. People have been cheering like mad for Scalabrine since the opening tip, which has got to be a little weird for Scal. Anyway, he got a great look at a 3 and missed, and then with the crowd chanting Scal-a...

Sorry for the lack of posts, but a nice gentleman from the Mullins Center event staff just informed me that I, and a few of my media colleagues had to vacate our seats on press row because UMass awesomely sold them. Now, no one likes to hear the press complain about these things, but yeesh, this is...

With 2:30 or so left in the first quarter, the Celtics have a completely new five on the floor. The lineup: Eddie House , Tony Allen , Darius Mles, Leon Powe and Baby Davis. Take it for what it's worth, but that would seem to be the likely second unit for Doc Rivers this season. Play was ragged on...

Rajon Rondo just pulled out his show the ball make the other guy look silly move to finish off a layup and a 16-4 run. The Celtics look ridiculously good right now. Of particular interest is Patrick O'Bryant who is in the starting lineup for Kendrick Perkins . O'Bryant has generated some buzz...

Darius Miles, JR Giddens and Bill Walker put on a decent dunking exhibition during warmups. Got to give D-Miles top honors. There's a decent crowd on hand tonight and they're pretty jacked up, especially a vocal collection of backward-baseball hat wearing dudes. Brian Scalabrine gave them some dap...

Greetings from scenic UMass. Who's ready for some preseason hoops? The big news is that coach Doc Rivers is not with the team tonight. He is back in Orlando to attend a hearing regarding the high school eligibility of Adam Jones . The Rivers family recently became guardians of Jones who plays on...

Believe it or not, the Celtics are NOT the home team in their preseason opener against the Philadelphia 76ers at the Mullins Center, despite playing this game just about 100 miles from Boston and in their home state. That's because the Celtics already have four other pre-designated 'home' preseason...
