  • C's expected to get Bradley back Sunday

    CSN New England "The Celtics could use a little help - OK, they could use a lot of help - in improving their defense.

  • Celtics Avery Bradley excelling off the ball

    Celtics Blog "Imagine that. Avery Bradley is better as an off guard than a point guard. Who saw that coming? Oh yeah, everyone. The worst kept secret in the NBA was that Avery Bradley is not, and will not ever be, a point guard. He's the best guard on the roster and he can handle the ball reasonably well,..." November 09

    Scott Souza @scott_souza

    #Celtics guard Avery Bradley said he played exclusively point guard during today's first workout.

  • Bradley focused as bigger role on C's nears

    CSN New England "Avery Bradley isn't one for many words but he made his message clear on Boston Celtics Media Day -- he is zoned in on basketball. Following an offseason in which he lost his mother and became a father the soft-spoken guard concentrated on his life on the court not away from it. "I've just..." October 01

  • Brad Stevens says Avery Bradley’s on point

    Boston Herald "In the wake of Danny Ainge’s comments that Rajon Rondo may not be back until December new Celtics coach Brad Stevens thinks he has an in-house candidate to fill the star point guard’s shoes.

  • Avery Bradley’s defensive prowess gains notice

    Boston Herald "As far back as last year, when Rajon Rondo was named to the NBA’s all-defensive second team for the second time — he was a first-teamer in 2010 and ’11 — the Celtics point guard wasn’t even considered the best defensive guard on his own team. That informal honor belonged to Avery Bradley, who..." May 14

  • Rejuvenated Avery Bradley ignites rally

    Boston Herald "It was as if something had clicked in Avery Bradley’s head and body at the same time. The player that was deemed as “The Savior” on the defensive end at the beginning of the season looked lost in the first five games, and the first three quarters last night, of this first-round series with the..." May 04

  • Defensive responsibilities slow Avery Bradley

    Boston Herald "Rarely has there been a bigger strain on Avery Bradley’s responsibilities. As the Celtics guard has chased Raymond Felton and J.R. Smith across the floor — the former largely in vain — his offensive numbers have continued to suffer. Bradley has averaged 6.5 points on 11-for-30 shooting (37..." April 30

  • Avery Bradley must tone it down

    Boston Globe "Wednesday was one of those nights when we’re reminded Avery Bradley is 22 years old and in his third year in the NBA.

    WEEI Boston "Just over 12 hours after a humbling loss to the Cavaliers at the Garden, the Celtics got a boost at practice in Waltham when Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce returned from separate foot injuries. Garnett has missed the last eight games due to inflammation from bone spurs in his left ankle. The..." April 06

  • Bradley bruises collarbone, hopes to face Wiz

    CSN New England "Avery Bradley gave Boston Celtics fans an injury scare when he left the game in the fourth quarter with what turned out to be a bruised left collarbone.

  • This is good: Avery Bradley breaks out

    Boston Herald "The Celtics lost their seventh game in the last nine last night, but there was a bright spot in the 110-100 defeat to the Timberwolves.

  • Celtics can build around Jeff Green and Avery Bradley

    Boston Globe "It's difficult to write a Jeff Green story without mentioning Kendrick Perkins, so let's get that out of the way first. Green's 43-point performance vs. Miami Monday night was no more an anomaly than a trend. It wasn't an affirmation of the deal that sent Perkins to Oklahoma City. Danny Ainge was..." March 19

  • Bradley, Rondo lean on each other in tough times

    CSN New England "The evolution of Avery Bradley into an all-around, high-impact talent is undeniable. He plays with the kind of stealth-like confidence that the Boston Celtics desperately need as they continue to cope with a season's worth of injuries. Part of Bradley's confidence stems from the many..." March 08

  • Avery Bradley, Celtics Cannot Overlook Turnover Issues Regardless of Win Over Sixers

    NESN "Avery Bradley broke out with 22 points while Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett each logged less than 30 minutes, so any criticism of the Celtics’ victory over the Sixers on Tuesday needs to be tempered with those three facts. Any time Doc Rivers‘ guys can earn a “W” without forcing their aging..." March 06

  • Avery Bradley and Paul Pierce lead Celtics over 76ers

    Boston Globe "Avery Bradley is giving opponents an increasingly more difficult choice as he lines up with Kevin Garnett on the pick-and-roll. Right now, every opposing defender is going to blanket Garnett, trying to stymie his twisting, turning post move that usually results in a swished jumper. On Tuesday..." March 06

  • Avery Bradley quietly plays role of defensive leader

    Boston Herald "Avery Bradley isn’t by any means loud, and yet he has no problem being heard. It’s a combination that has made him most appreciated around the Celtics, while raising his stock around the league. “You’ve heard people say you lead by example,” Bradley said as he prepared for tonight’s game in..." March 05

  • Bradley clamps down on Warriors' Curry

    CSN New England "This is why Avery Bradley is well, Avery Bradley. As you listen to him discuss his matchup with Golden State's Stephen Curry, you find yourself thinking, "this sure sounds a lot like what he had to say about [pick any player in the NBA he has faced]!" That's because in Bradley's world, every..." March 02

  • Bradley, Lee put on the pressure

    Boston Herald "Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett may have supplied the finishing kick last night, but the early pace-setting in the 110-107 overtime win against Utah was created by the Celtics backcourt. Avery Bradley and Courtney Lee pressured the Jazz backcourt from the start. Bradley scored 10 of his 18 points..." February 26

  • Doc instructs Courtney Lee, Avery Bradley to score more

    Boston Herald "Now that three members of the rotation, including a franchise-level point guard, are out of the lineup for the rest of the season, more is being asked of everyone.

  • Avery Bradley sets himself apart with defense

    Boston Herald "His jump shot is improving, and he has a unique knack for back-cuts. But like Tony Allen before him, Avery Bradley gets his primary thrill from breaking down an offensive player. Demoralizing him. Filling him with doubt. Once the opposing point guard starts to grumble or panic at the thought..." February 19

  • Celtics’ Win Streak Ends, But Status of Leandro Barbosa, Avery Bradley of Much Greater Concern

    NESN "Jason Terry‘s last shot told the whole story. With the Celtics up by four and Terry seemingly heating up with two 3-pointers in the fourth quarter already, the veteran sharpshooter let loose a long-range shot that might have put the nail in the Bobcats’ coffin. The other four guys in green jerseys..." February 12

  • Avery Bradley’s subtle nudge to Celtics coach Doc Rivers shows player’s growth in leadership, maturity

    Boston Globe "Watching Doc Rivers on the sideline during Celtics games is worth the price of admission. He stomps around after questionable calls, smiles sarcastically after a ticky-tack foul, and places his hands, fingers spread, above his head in disbelief when he completely disagrees with an official’s..."
