“Just come in and just be Nate.”

The Celtics entered the All-Star break in a slump, plagued by injuries in the first half and struggling to put together four quarters of basketball. There were even talks of breaking up the Big Three and dealing Ray Allen for younger talent.

Overcoming a 20-point deficit is impressive. Then again, facing a 20-point deficit is problematic in itself.

After covering the 2008 NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans for Hoopsworld, I was excited to cover the festivities again this year. But what was supposed to be a quick flight to Dallas turned into a 22-hour journey that had too many twists and turns not to share. Thursday, Feb. 11

DALLAS — All-Star Weekend is viewed by many players as friendly competition. Yet for Kevin Garnett, it still was very much a game that he wanted to win. After the East defeated the West on Sunday night, Garnett’s teammates revealed the impact he made on the squad.

DALLAS – You could hear Paul Pierce coming from down the hallway. He strutted into the interview room clutching his newest piece of hardware and sporting a smile from ear-to-ear. “I came to win!” he proclaimed with a laugh.

The Celtics should have known you can’t read into a record. After all, this is the same team that just a few years ago, at one of the low points of the franchise’s existence, stunned the Spurs on the road to “improve” to 20-46.

Add Paul Pierce’s strained left foot to a laundry list of injuries faced by the Celtics this season.

First, the good news for Celtics fans — the C’s snapped a three-game skid with a 99-88 win over the Wizards Monday night in Washington, D.C. Now, the better news — Paul Pierce expects to be OK.

For all intents and purposes, it was a preseason game with little significance.
Jessica Camerato
01/30/2010 - 2:25am
Paul Pierce scored a season-high 35 points, yet the most memorable play of the game was the shot he could not stop.

Baron Davis wouldn’t have his way this time.

“We didn't finish the game like we were supposed to.” – Glen Davis, January 8, following Celtics 93-85 loss to Hawks

On Monday night, the Celtics celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. Day at the TD Garden.

The Celtics locker room was quiet. Many of the players already had left, silently filing out without any expression on their faces. Yet they didn't have to say anything. Doc Rivers summed it up in just one sentence.

For all of you who have been booing Mike Bibby for the past two seasons, don't worry — he's heard you. The thing is, he wouldn't have been able to have a 12-year career in the NBA if he succumbed to every jeer thrown his way.

Plain and simple, the Celtics have the Raptors’ number.   The C’s continued their domination with a 114-107 victory on Sunday in Toronto. (Recap.)

Paul Pierce, welcome back. Rajon Rondo, it's like you never left.

A brown suit hung in Paul Pierce's locker.   It may not have been a green and white uniform like the ones hanging his teammates' lockers, but it represented his role on the Celtics just the same.

There was obvious concern before the game.
Jessica Camerato
12/28/2009 - 3:20am
One free throw would have given the Celtics an advantage. Two likely would have ensured overtime. But Rajon Rondo missed both.

For many of the Celtics growing up, December 25 was just as much about basketball as it was about gifts and Santa Claus.

BOSTON – The Celtics may be struggling on Fridays this season, but they’ve rebounded in time to show their Sunday best.

One word spoke volumes about a man who could talk for days. It was a slip of the tongue that came after a game in late November. The word was quickly clarified, but one small pronoun left a lasting impression.

Jim Calhoun would have been proud watching this game.
