To celebrate his 62nd birthday, Bill Belichick plans to spend 18 hours preparing for the draft today instead of his usual 16.

Dan Duggan

Flood has twice mentioned Stephenson and getting the best 11 players on the field. Seems he's considered one of best 11, but position is TBD

Dan Duggan

2-The way he talks about Delon Stephenson, he's going to be a prominent member of the secondary, whether it's FS or CB.

Dan Duggan

1-Flood keeps mentioning the experience of Nova and Bimonte and the advantage it gives them. Seems like Laviano is slipping behind.

If you're into reading tea leaves, two things have stood out to me in Kyle Flood's comments recently...

Originally thought Rondo would sabotage the tanking, but he turned out to be a savior. Celtics are 6-24 w/him in the lineup; 19-31 without.

You just know the Clippers are going to work all night now on a package to send the NBA showing why Griffin's tech should be rescinded.

Blake Griffin just picked up his 16th tech and will now not be able to play in Clippers final game tomorrow. They should rescind that.

Myles Nash has come a long way in his freshman year: bit.ly/P3JZHE

Baxter Holmes

The next morning at practice in NYC, Celtics players/coaches talked of that chase, the bombing, the city being on lockdown and little else.

Baxter Holmes

Most vivid memory: in NYC for Celtics-NYK playoffs, listening to scanner deep into the night as cops chased the suspects through Watertown.

Why it's pointless to get worked up over spring injury reports: James and Kroft were ruled out for the spring on Sat. They practiced Tue.

Flood says not to count Delon Stephenson out of FS competition despite work at CB. Johnathan Aiken and Davon Jacobs also in the mix.

Dan Duggan

Flood says Nova continues to perform like a guy with a lot of experience and Bimonte continues to make plays. "Fun comp. to watch so far"

Dan Duggan

Flood thinks by the midway point of the summer "we should be in pretty good shape."

Dan Duggan

Paul James and Tyler Kroft participated in practice for the first time this spring. Flood doesn't have long-terms concerns with any injuries

Sean Grande

Michael Carter-Williams' 14 rebounds tonight were the most for a guard against Boston since Houston's Steve Francis' 15, Jan. 18, 2002. @NBA

Sean Grande

As the Celtics take off from Philadelphia, the Lakers' win means Boston owns the 5th worst record in the NBA. 1 up on Utah, 1 behind LA.

Sean Grande

So through 81 games, the Celtics hold the 5th worst record, giving them a 29% chance at a top three pick and a 62% chance at landing 5 or 6.

Gary Washburn

#celtics will have 4th, 5th or 6th worst record depending on Wednesday and coin flips. 3rd is out of the question
