Who Would You Rather See the Celtics Play in the Playoffs?

After their win against the Pistons, the Celtics keep inching towards a playoff spot. The Green currently sit in seventh place in the East with four games to go, by virtue of holding the tiebreaker over Brooklyn. Their magic number to clinch a playoff spot is four (any combination of Boston wins and Indiana/Miami losses). […]

Jared Sullinger No Longer Out for Season

The Celtics received some very surprising and very good news Friday afternoon. It’s been exactly 50 days since Jared Sullinger last played in a game for Boston, but it looks like that number has a chance to stop there as early as Friday night against the Bucks. Sullinger’s last game came in what might be […]

One Eyed Kelly Olynyk KO’s Pacers

Shavlik Randolph hasn’t had much of an impact on the Celtics at all this year. He only gets in during blow outs or extreme foul trouble. He is essentially a paid practice player, not a bad gig. However, tonight maybe Randolph was a little mad at Kelly Olynyk and took it out on the young […]

The Celtics or the Bruins? Who’s the Bigger Ticket at the Garden?

I’m not talking about the price of the ticket because both teams, along with every team in our great snowy city, charge too much for their tickets, but which of these teams is the more exciting one right now? At the beginning of the season it was easy to say the more exciting team throughout […]

Hey Celtics: Forget Tanking, Go for the 8-Seed

Sean Grande, the Celtics radio play-by-play voice, said it best: “Strange things happen the last game before the All Star break.” And strange things did happen as the Celtics defeated the Eastern Conference leading Atlanta Hawks 89-88. Evan Turner was the hero for the Green with his near buzzer-beating right-handed floater. These Celtics are proving more […]

Don’t Look Now, but the Minutemen Sit Atop the A-10

Well, they’re not alone at the top of the conference, but after a very good stretch of conference play, the UMass Minutemen find themselves part of a four way tie at the top of the Atlantic 10. Dayton, Rhode Island, and current #20 VCU are the three others tied with UMass, but for once it […]

New Year’s Resolution in Full Swing for Minutemen

The 2014 calendar year was one of ups (a thrilling ride to the NCAA Tournament) and downs (a mediocre start to the 2014–15 season) for the UMass Minutemen basketball team. However, a new year means new year’s resolutions, and while most of you are probably saying things like “I’m going to eat healthier!”or “I’m going […]

Panic Mode in Full Effect, Minutemen are Struggling

If you’re a UMass fan and you haven’t hit the panic button, you’re a bit late to the game. The Minutemen are playing their worst basketball in some time and the loss at Providence on Saturday was the low point. Since blowing out Northeastern back on November 26, they have lost four of their last […]

Harvard Claims Bay State ‘Title’ Over UMass

There wasn’t an actual title on the line this past week as UMass finished its in-state schedule, but Harvard took care of business on its home court to stop the Minutemen from crowning themselves the kings of college basketball in Massachusetts. After victories over Boston College and Northeastern, UMass looked to finish off the Crimson […]

Minutemen Bounce Back with Win over Florida State

They did not keep the winning streak as long as they would have liked, but the UMass Minutemen are 4-1 after the first two weeks of the season and have already faced some adversity along the way. Being able to rebound after a loss is a big factor in having a successful season and UMass has […]

Two Games, Two Wins, Minutemen off and Running

The first week of the NCAA basketball season is in the books and the UMass Minutemen took care of business through their first two games against Siena and Boston College. Here’s a couple of takeaways after week one. Maxie Esho is the Go-To Guy Senior forward Maxie Esho had been the energy guy off the […]

Meet the Minutemen

College basketball has never been a focal point in the Boston sports scene, in fact college sports in general haven’t been a hot topic among every day Boston sports fans since Doug Flutie threw that unforgettable pass that handed him the Heisman on a silver platter. Out in western Massachusetts (yes, the state continues past […]

Ray Allen Sets Record; Celtics Fall Apart Against Lakers

It didn’t take long in Thursday night’s game for Ray Allen to put his name into the NBA record book. After missing his first long range attempt, Allen came through on his next two to both tie and pass Reggie Miller for the all-time three point record in NBA history. Allen hit the 2,560th and […]

With West out Could the C’s Turn to Marbury?

Remember back just two seasons ago when crazy point guard Stephon Marbury came over from the New York Knicks to finish out the 2008-09 season with the Celtics? Well, it seems the idea of Marbury coming back has been tossed around thanks to a fan forum article on NESN.com. The article is all speculation of course, […]

Ray Allen’s 3 Seals 5th Straight for Boston

He had been cold all night long, but Paul Pierce found Ray Allen in the corner with 10.7 seconds left in the game to hit a three pointer and seal the win for Boston on Wednesday night. The Celtics took home their fifth straight victory with a 99-95 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on […]
