The Celtics opened their eight-game preseason slate with a road game in, of all places, UMass on Wednesday night against the Philadelphia 76ers . The Cs lost the game, 98-92, despite leading by as manny as 14, 65-51, midway through the third. The team was without head coach Doc Rivers , who was...

The word from the locker room is that there was some good, there was some bad, and there was some fatigue, which is about what you would expect from the first preseason game. Tom Thibodeau had praise for Bill Walker , who drew a crowd after his 8-point performance that included two serious dunks...

That was a remarkably intense fourth quarter, but the Sixers, who didn't go that deeply into their bench and had starter Thaddeus Young in there at the end, pulled it out 98-92. There were a lot of good things for the Celtics tonight. Patrick O'Bryant and Bill Walker , particularly showed some good...

Some things mean something. Some things mean nothing. What does this mean? I have no idea, I've been awake for approximately 42 of the last 48 hours, but here's what I just saw: Patrick O'Bryant made a fine defensive play, and then threw a completely ill-advised home run pass that was picked off...

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...
