Celtics 96, Knicks 92: "*Throws tomatoes*"

Chasing the dragon... With just under nine minutes left in tonight's fourth quarter, Celtic forward Jonas Jerebko drove to the basket. Cleanthony Early and Quincy Acy both went all-out for the block. Their combined effort forced a Jerebko miss, but left Kelly Olynyk alone underneath for the put-back. With eight minutes left, Olynyk missed an open three in transition. There were three Knicks and just one Celtic, Jerebko, underneath. Early needlessly shoved Jerebko. Loose-ball foul. With just under two minutes left, Andrea Bargnani cut an 11-point deficit to five. On Boston's next possession,...

The unexpected excellence of Jonas Jerebko

Although he was an afterthought when initially acquired, the Swedish power forward has been playing great for the Celtics When Tayshaun Prince was traded from Boston to Detroit, people were not exactly effusive in praise for the return that Danny Ainge received. As Stan Van Gundy expressed so elegantly, "The reason Boston made the trade is to save money." Jonas Jerebko and Luigi Datome were looked at more as expiring contracts than players. Heck, Jonas Jerebko can't even get his name pronounced right. But, the depleted frontline of the Celtics has given Jerebko an opportunity to play...

Jerebko has been one Swede pickup for C's

Boston Celtics newcomer Jonas Jerebko was fielding questions about his native Sweden before a recent game and explaining how basketball is maybe the "fifth or sixth biggest sport" in the Scandinavian country behind both some not-so surprising (hockey!) and obscure (floorball?) activities. While Swedish media flocked stateside to chronicle Jerebko as the first Swede in the NBA after he was drafted by the Detroit Pistons before the 2009-10 season, his rollercoaster journey in the league has become more of a footnote back home.

Pistons News: Stan Van Gundy looking to boost analytics department; Jonas Jerebko's fresh start with Celtics; and Chauncey Billups to coach Nuggets?

This week's roundup looks into two former players' future in the League and SVG's love for crunching numbers. Jonas Jerebko enjoying fresh start with Celtics Since joining the Boston Celtics, Jonas Jerebko has averaged 8.3 points and 4.2 rebounds in 16.8 minutes per game, with the Pistons this season, the Swedish forward averaged 5.2 points and 3.1 rebounds in one minute less of game time.

Thomas, Stevens give C's playoff chance

BOSTON -- Boston Celtics newcomer Jonas Jerebko knows a thing or two about NBA coaches. After all, he had five of them in five seasons with the Detroit Pistons. So what are his early impressions of Brad Stevens? "He’s just very calm and collected and knows his stuff," said Jerebko. "He knows his basketball and he's positive. He’s a great coach. Like you said, I’ve had a lot of [coaches], and he’s great." Now, Jerebko is certainly biased and isn't going to talk down about the coach who controls his playing time.
