Boston Celtics Daily Dish: April 11, 2014

Happy Friday, Boston Celtics fans!

The Boston Celtics play their second-to-last home game of the season tonight – sad, but true!  Be sure to tune in . . . if you can’t make it to the game, of course!

Talk about a light schedule: only two games in the NBA last night?  What gives?  There’s 13 tonight – you guys couldn’t spread them out a bit?!?  Get your scores, recaps, and video highlights here.  [NBA.com]

How about your Morning Shootaround?  [NBA] Oh yeah – we got that!

Your Daily Dime opens up with a look at the race for the 8th and final playoff spot in the Western Conference – and why no one really wants it.  [ESPN]

Didn’t I just share a link for the Floppies yesterday?  Why wasn’t Rajon Rondo in that list, since he received a warning for his flop against the Hawks on Wednesday?  [Sports Illustrated]

At various points this seasons, Jabari Parker was considered to be the number one NBA prospect in college basketball.  Here’s a look at why Andrew Wiggins has surpassed Parker for the final time.  [Bleacher Report]

Hard to believe, but there are still a handful of players from the class of 1996 playing in the NBA today – many of whom are contributing members of teams with playoff aspirations.  Where does the class of ’96 rank among the all-time greatest draft classes?  [Sporting News]

As we look back on the Celtics’ 2013-2014 season, we should pay attention to the events that changed the course of this team.  [b/r]  You know what they say: learn from the past!

And speaking of learning from the past – how troubling is Avery Bradley’s history of injury?  Read Danny Ainge’s thoughts on the subject.  [Masslive.com]

Thanks – and be on the look-out for our game-day coverage of tonight’s Celtics-Bobcats game!
