It’s Time To Go Green!

The Boston Celtics have a tough schedule coming out of the NBA All-Star Break and despite what critics say, they are not taking this schedule lightly. Instead, they are looking at the second of season as a chance for a fresh start. 
“You remember it, break it down, understand what you’ve been doing right and been doing wrong, and instead of half a season, we look at it like a whole new ballgame,” said Paul Pierce. “A fresh start. It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish.’’
Last night, the Celtics started a four game, five night road trip in Sacramento, CA. The Celtics did prevail in the final minutes of the game, knocking down key free throws and going on to beat the Kings, 95-92.
The Sacramento Kings, despite only having 18 wins on the season, gave the Celtics problems all night long with their young and talented starting five. The Big Three combined for just 13 of 47 from the field and the team missed a total of 50 shots on the night.
The Celtics’ reserves were the real story of the game though, combining for 44 points off of the bench. Eddie House had 12 out of those 44 connecting on four 3-pointers and Rasheed Wallace chipped in with 17. The bench was a huge part of the Celtics’ success at the beginning of the season, and the C’s will need more production from them if they are going to be contenders in the post season.
A win is a win, even if it was ugly. “It’s a win.” Said Doc Rivers after the game, “I don’t know what tone it’s going to set, but we get a win and now we’ve got to move to the next game, and that’s how we’re approaching the next 31 now. We’re not looking ahead, we’re not sending messages, we’re just trying to win this game and get better tonight and focus on the next game. The whole trip, we’re not looking at. We’re looking at the next game. That’s the way we have to be right now.’’
The Celtics have 31 games left to play. Despite their woes before the All-Star Break, they still sit in fourth place in the Eastern Conference Standings. Their focus must continue to be one game at a time.
Next stop: Los Angeles
Thursday could be a big day in Celtic Nation. The trade deadline is at 3:00 PM, when all rumors will either come to life or to fruition. Big trade or not, the Celtics are also scheduled to take on the Lakers in LA at 10:30 PM ET on national television. So, be sure to tune in for what is sure to be an eventful day.

Rondo and the Celtics Cool Off Heat

The Boston Celtics have been hampered by injuries all season long. Their injury woes continued on Monday against the Washington Wizards when their Captain Paul Pierce went down with a strained left mid-foot in the first quarter.
Despite the most recent injury to Pierce though, the Celtics managed to pull out a win over the Miami Heat at the TD Bank Garden last night, 107-102. Rajon Rondo was the spark the Celtics needed to win the game and his logged minutes (44:11) show it.  He filled the offensive void left by Pierce, connecting for two 3-pointers and scoring 22 points on the night. Ray Allen dropped 23 points on 7 for 15 shooting and Eddie House chipped in with 16 off the bench.
The Celtics did miss Pierce on the defensive end. In fact, they really did not play defense for most of the game, letting the Heat shoot close to sixty percent from the field for the first three quarters. Yes, the defense did win the game. Tony Allen’s big steal on Dwayne Wade in the final seconds sealed the game, but that wasn’t the whole story.
There were three reasons why the Celtics won last night: they out-rebounded the Heat (41-31), they moved the ball around on offense (29 assists), and they have a great point guard in Rajon Rondo. The Celtics had 15 offensive boards as a team; Rajon Rondo collected four of them. He was also instrumental in the distribution of the basketball, dishing out 16 of the Celtics’ 29 assists. To say Rondo led the Celtics’ offensive is an understatement. He controlled the tempo and put the Celtics in position to win the game even without one of the Big Three in the lineup.
The Celtics play again tomorrow night at the Garden against the lowly New Jersey Nets. Paul Pierce is listed as day-to-day. If Pierce is scratched from the starting five, whose turn is it to fill the gap? Is it Rondo’s time again?

Wake Me Up For Spring Training

Happy Groundhog’s Day! Unfortunately the famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, saw his shadow this morning in Pennsylvania and as a result, it is predicted that there will be six more weeks of winter this year.
For the Red Sox though, spring is just a little bit closer.  Spring Training is less than three weeks away and players and fans, alike, are starting to come out of hibernation in anticipation of the 2010 baseball season. There is one person who never went into hybernation this off-season: Red Sox General Manager, Theo Epstein. Instead, he was too busy making big deals that brought John Lackey, Mike Cameron, Marco Scutaro, Adrian Beltre, and Joe Nelson to Boston. Epstein is also not fazed by Phil’s prediction that there will be six more weeks of winter. Epstein told a select group of Sox fans at a recent luncheon at Fenway Park, “The best way to get excited about Spring Training is to have a snow storm and have it freezing outside… Yeah, we’re definitely ready to get down there.” Like Theo Epstein, I too, have spring fever. However, I do not need anymore snow to get excited about Spring Training.
Pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report to Fort Myers, FL for Spring Training on February 19th and position players are scheduled to report down south on February 23rd.
 So until then, I am going back into hibernation. Just make sure to wake me up for Spring Training… http://www.chowdaheadz.com/slogan-of-the-day.html

Boston Red Sox Faces

With spring training right around the corner, familiar faces from our favorite ball club have been popping up in the news in anticipation of the 2010 baseball season. Talks about the roles for individual players have surfaced including expectations for Jonathon Papelbon, Tim Wakefield,  Jacoby Ellsbury, and David Ortiz – just to name a few. The focus this past offseason though, hasn’t so much been on the old faces of the team but rather on the new ones: Adrian Beltre, Mike Cameron, Jeremy Hermida, and former Los Angeles Angeles ace, John Lackey.

There is one more new face to the Boston Red Sox family that you may not have heard of this off-season. It is your official Boston Red Sox Forest Face. Just nail it to a tree and make it come to life as a Red Sox fan. Let everyone who drives by your house know that you are a diehard Sox fan with one these. Or simply start the new trend on the block. Each Boston Red Sox Forest Face measures 12” x 7” and wears the team cap with the official team logo. Each piece is made of weather resistant resin and has a durable hook for hanging. Remember, your Red Sox Forest Face will only be as passionate about the Sox as you are!
