The 2008 Celtics, as petty as ever: ‘What has [Isaiah Thomas] done?’

092168792d9fc8e58b0033f78e83d43f

Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo and Paul Pierce are all wondering what’s so special about Isaiah Thomas. The 2008 Boston Celtics are a prideful and petty bunch, and they earned that right, beating LeBron James and Kobe Bryant to deliver an 17th title and restore glory to a dormant once-great franchise. Paul Pierce, now an ESPN analyst, still belittles James at every opportunity, probably one reason why No. 34 will be retired to the TD Garden rafters when the Celtics host the Cleveland Cavaliers on Feb. 11.

Too much rest for the weary?

BOSTON — You won't find any of the Celtics griping about having more days off this month than they've had all season. It certainly looked that way Tuesday during Boston's 116-113 overtime loss to the New Orleans Pelicans, which was Boston's first game after having played once in the previous 10 days. When asked about the long layoff being a factor, Al Horford said he wasn't sure what, if any, impact that had on the game's outcome.

Anthony Davis just reminded the Celtics why they want him so badly

The chatter’s been thrumming in NBA circles for more than a year: even though Anthony Davis is under contract through the end of the 2020-21 season, if things go south in the Big Easy and he gets a crack at it, noted asset-hoarder and trade-partner-fleecing enthusiast Danny Ainge would be mighty interested in trying to bring the All-NBA forward to the Boston Celtics. The speculation about the future grew so loud this summer that the Pelicans star started fielding questions about it from kids at his basketball camp, and that he reportedly felt compelled to walk into the office of general manager Dell Demps and ask him what was up. You’ll be shocked to learn that Demps, who has yet to build a winner around Davis since landing him with the No. 1 pick in the 2012 NBA draft but who remains very committed to the project of doing so, told the soon-to-be five-time All-Star that nothing was shaking on the trade front.

Celtics won’t salute Thomas on Pierce’s night

Paul Pierce won't have to share the spotlight with Isaiah Thomas after all. The Boston Celtics planned to honor former player Isaiah Thomas with a video tribute on Feb. 11 before taking the floor in a game against the point guard's new team, the Cleveland Cavaliers. Just one problem: That is the night the Celtics are retiring the jersey of Pierce, a team legend, and Pierce wasn't happy sharing the stage.

Part-GTY-900365656-1-1-0

Anthony Davis scored 45 points as the New Orleans Pelicans jolted the Boston Celtics 116-113 in an overtime thriller at the TD Garden on Tuesday. Davis, who before the game had brushed off reports linking him to a move to Boston, gave the home fans a glimpse of what they might be missing as he turned in a virtuoso performance. The 24-year-old power forward showed sensational form, also chipping in with 16 rebounds and two assists, as the Pelicans improved to 23-20 to rise to sixth place in the Western Conference standings.
