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.

Celtics 106, Hornets 98: Thomas, Jerebko fuel Boston's comeback

BOSTON -- Go ahead and book that (refundable) hotel room in Atlanta (or Cleveland?) starting on April 17. The Boston Celtics rallied from 16 down over the final 18 minutes of play, sparked by a small-ball lineup bookended by newcomers Isaiah Thomas and Jonas Jerebko, and emerged with a 106-98 triumph over the Charlotte Hornets on Friday night at a rocking TD Garden. With the win, Boston pulls even with the Hornets and makes things just a little bit more interesting in the race for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.

Jae Crowder and Jonas Jerebko are more than trade fill-ins

They are valuable role players and assets to their team. A lot of players have come and gone from the Celtics roster this year and many of them were merely here for a cup of coffee.  Salaries have to match in NBA trades (kinda-sorta, depending on which loophole you use) so often times players have to be included in deals purely for financial reasons (ask Gerald Wallace). You would be excused for thinking initially that Jae Crowder and Jonas Jerebko were just another few names to filter in and out of Boston as part of Danny Ainge's roster purification process.  If early indications are to...

Swedish fish out of water: Jerebko gets comfortable in Garden debut

BOSTON -- After leading the Boston Celtics in scoring during his TD Garden debut, recently acquired Jonas Jerebko was asked what he thought of all the snow here. The question ignored the fact that Detroit, Jerebko's last home, has endured its snowiest winter on record, recently breaking a mark that had stood since the winter of 1881, but Jerebko kindly played along. "I’m from Sweden," he said, "so that’s nothing new to me." What is new to the 27-year-old Jerebko is his basketball surroundings.

Celtics 115, Knicks 94: Gino and Gigi

BOSTON -- By the middle of the fourth quarter, the only question as the Boston Celtics tore open what had once been a close game against the New York Knicks was whether we'd see Gino or Gigi first? The Celtics had been down a point with under three minutes to play in the third quarter but score the game's next 21 points while racing away for a 115-94 triumph over the hapless Knicks at TD Garden. Boston's big run saw the Knicks go scoreless for nearly six full minutes, Jonas Jerebko made a 3-pointer from roughly Sweden to end the third quarter, and Evan Turner worked on what would be the...

Flu limits Jonas Jerebko; Luigi Datome benched in Boston Celtics debut

'Sputter' may be a strong term considering Jerebko was overcome with the flu and Datome recieved his first DNP-CD as a member of the Boston Celtics. Two former Pistons suited up for their first game with the Boston Celtics Sunday night, a 118 - 111 overtime loss against the Los Angeles Lakers.  Boston has been struck down by multiple injuries over the course of the season, leaving their front court desperately thin, meaning that both Gigi Datome and Jonas Jerebko will stand to get extended minutes in Brad Stevens' rotation. Despite rumors that he could be bought out, Datome was excited to...

Shootaround: The three new amigos

PLAYA VISTA, Calif. -- Nobody likes navigating Los Angeles traffic, so old friend Doc Rivers was kind enough to open the doors to the Clippers' training facility in Playa Vista for the Boston Celtics on Sunday morning and save them at least one trip downtown. A handful of quick hits from the team's gathering in advance of Sunday's game against the rival Los Angeles Lakers: • Three new amigos: All three of Boston's trade acquisitions -- Isaiah Thomas, Jonas Jerebko, and Luigi Datome -- were present at Sunday's shootaround.

Another makeover for Celtics

Another makeover for Celtics

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Brad Stevens learned to increasingly value stability since he joined the Celtics, and yesterday’s trades won’t help that.The arrivals of Isaiah Thomas from Phoenix (for Marcus Thornton and Cleveland’s protected 2016 first-round draft pick), and former Pistons Jonas Jerebko and Luigi Datome (for Tayshaun Prince) mean more reconfigurations for the Celtics coach.

NBA players react to trade deadline madness

How did those being affected feel about this craziness? Earlier today, Matt Watson put together a Twitter reaction in the immediate aftermath of the trade deadline.  However, some of the players reactions were not tweeted yet, and now let's find out how those beloved athletes felt as the emotional turmoil washed over them. For starters, several players left Detroit today, and it would be remiss of me to not let them say goodbye to their favorite online communities. Ill write more later but THANK YOU detroit! — Jonas Jerebko (@JonasJerebko) February 19, 2015 Thank you to the...

The other guys: Jonas Jerebko and Luigi Datome

The Celtics didn't just get Isaiah Thomas, there's these other guys. Whats-his-name and the other guy. Obviously the big name the Celtics acquired today was Isaiah Thomas (or "Napoleon Complex Dynamite" as I call him - trademark pending).  But the Celtics also picked up a couple of players in exchange for Tayshaun Prince.  I know nothing about them (just being honest) so I did a little research on our sister blog site Detroit Bad Boys and came up with the following quotes.  Enjoy! Jonas Jerebko Great summary of his career thus far at the link below, but I've given you the most recent...

NBA trade rumors: Pistons still interested in adding Norris Cole

Stan Van Gundy and Jeff Bower are reportedly still inquiring about the Heat point guard. We've been here before. It was earlier reported that the Pistons were interested in acquiring Norris Cole from Miami, and that Jonas Jerebko had been offered for the struggling point guard, only to have Pat Riley add Danny Granger to the deal, subsequently severing communications between both teams. However, ESPN's Marc Stein believes that the Pistons are still interested in the defensive minded point, and could agree to a deal if Granger is dropped from the conversation. DBB's Sean Corp had this to...
