Jae Crowder feels at home with Celtics


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2015) Since joining the Celtics in mid-December, Jae Crowder has fit right in, with the city and the team. 

"I think my work ethic and the way I approach the game really fits the city, really fits what the organization and the city really prides itself on. I respect being here, and I take the utmost pride in putting on the Celtics uniform each and every night," he said, per the Boston Herald.

Crowder is a free agent following the season, but he sounds like he's found a place to stay. 

As a basketball player, that’s what you want,” Crowder said. “You don’t want to be in a situation where you feel you’re held back. ... I can score. I can make plays. I don’t think I’m a guy who just sits in the corner, but I was forced to do that in Dallas. Here with Boston, I’m able to just make plays."

"A home is a home, and I feel like I’m at home here, so that’s a good start," he added. 


Doc Rivers not surprised Celtics traded PG Rajon Rondo


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(3/29/2015) Former Celtics coach Doc Rivers said he was not surprised when point guard Rajon Rondo was traded to the Mavericks earlier this season, according to Boston.com.

Rivers coached Rondo for seven seasons before stepping down and taking over the Clippers in 2013.

"I didn’t know [if Rondo was going to be part of Boston's future]," Rivers said. "I think at the end of the day, it was more of a Rajon decision, in my opinion ... it was more his decision than [team president Danny Ainge) and the Celtics' staff."

The Celtics acquired forwards Jae Crowder and Brandan Wright, guard Jameer Nelson and a pair of future draft picks in the trade with the Mavs.

"I just think you get a feel for whether [Rondo] wanted to play it out [in Boston] or not, and when you're rebuilding you can't take that gamble of letting an asset out of the door and letting him become a free agent," Rivers said.


Stevens has reason not to change Celtics' struggling starting lineup


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(3/28/2015) In contention for the seventh and eighth playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, the Celtics' starting five have been outscored this season by 11.3 points, worse than the NBA-worst Knicks, giving coach Brad Stevens thoughts of changing it up, reports MassLive.com 

"We've had that discussion almost every day," Stevens said. 

But his relucatance to change the starting five is due to the strong bench play from forward Jae Crowder and guard Isaiah Thomas, especially when they're on the floor at the same time with reserve center Kelly Olynyk and guard Jonas Jerebko

"The first six minutes of a 48-minute game are the first six minutes," Stevens said. "You want to start as well as you can, but you also want to create rotations that you like. If your second unit's really playing at a high level, then you have to factor that in - that if you mix it up, your second unit might not play at a high level."


F Jae Crowder goes for 16 points, seven rebounds in Celtics' loss


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Crowder has now played a stretch of seven out of nine games with at least 10 points.

Celtics' Stevens on Crowder: 'Great at adapting to whatever we need'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2015) Celtics coach Brad Stevens praised small forward Jae Crowder Sunday for his ability to play multiple roles when called upon, CSNNE.com reports.

"He’s been good," Stevens said. "He’s been great at adapting to whatever we need. I think he’s played everything from the two (shooting guard) to the five (center) for us which, not many people are going to be asked to do that. He’s done it well. We need him to continue to be a jack of all trades for us. Our depth isn’t what it once was. It’s nice to be able to have him play multiple positions."

Crowder has averaged 22.7 minutes since joining the Celtics in mid-December but has seen his usage rise in recent weeks, as he's played 28.6 minutes per game in his last nine contests while making two starts. He's averaged 12.8 points and 7.1 rebounds during that recent stretch.


Jae Crowder does a little of everything in Celtics' win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2015) Jae Crowder just missed a double-double as he helped spark the Celtics to a 104-98 win over the Pelicans on Friday.

Celtics' Avery Bradley (elbow) 'felt better' Friday, Jae Crowder starting


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2015) Celtics coach Brad Stevens said guard Avery Bradley "felt better" on Friday and could possibly travel down to Orlando for Sunday's game, per the team's website

Bradley did not travel to New Orleans for Friday night's game. He's nursing a sprained left elbow that was sustained Wednesday against the Jazz. 

With Bradley out for Friday's game, the Celtics are going with Jae Crowder in the starting lineup. According to The Boston Globe, Stevens said he's going with Crowder over Isaiah Thomas because he doesn't want to disrupt Thomas' rhythm off the bench. 


Jae Crowder getting his chance


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2015) New Celtics forward Jae Crowder has been an interesting Fantasy prospect since entering the league, but he has never really gotten the chance to show it in big minutes. Now that he's getting the opportunity in Boston, should Fantasy owners take note?

Crowder was integrated into the Celtics' rotation slowly, playing 20-plus minutes just once in his first seven games. He has reached that mark four times in five games since, and now looks like a fixture of the starting lineup, where he has spent three straight games. He is averaging 13.3 points, 4.3 rebounds 2.3 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.3 blocks in his three starts since the team traded Jeff Green, and is someone worth looking at in category-based leagues right now.

If you have an extra roster spot at the end of your bench, taking a flier on Crowder right now is a smart move. He is still owned in just 22 percent of CBSSports.com leagues, and might not have much value in H2H scoring leagues, but take a chance on him while he is getting minutes. 


Celtics' Jae Crowder scores career-high 22 points in win Monday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

It was the first time in his career he had reached 20 points. Coach Brad Stevens said after the game Crowder is working very hard to find his shot.

"One of the things I've noticed is he has a really deliberate way about his work. Doesn’t surprise me he’s making shots," Stevens said.

Crowder also added four steals, three rebounds and three assists on the night.


Celtics sticking with Jae Crowder in the starting lineup Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/10/2015) Celtics coach Brad Stevens is going to keep small forward Jae Crowder in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Raptors.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Mavericks coach tells Jae Crowder not to worry about free agency


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2014) Mavericks forward Jae Crowder could hit the free-agent market next summer. Though, coach Rick Carlisle doesn't want the third-year pro to worry about that during the 2014-15 season, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

"I had a meeting with Carlisle about two months ago in Vegas," Crowder said. "We had dinner at a steakhouse and the one thing he told me is don’t worry about [free agency] -- that’s going to take care of itself. Especially if we’re winning, it’s going to take care of itself. Just keep playing the same way."

Crowder believes if he can improve his shooting accuracy and range, then his playing time might increase this season after he averaged 4.6 points and 2.5 rebounds in 16.1 minutes per game last season. 

"I’ve got to have consistency in my shooting and I need to work on my body, and of course, I’m trying to be a better athlete and trying to be bigger, faster and stronger," Crowder said. "I don’t want to have any lapses."
