NBA Rescinds Perk’s Technical; Celtics Still Cling to 3-2 Series Lead

A week ago the Boston Celtics had a 3-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference Finals to a team most probably thought they could not compete with. They had a 3-0 series lead with Game 4 on their own home turf. How could one not possibly expect the Celtics to be able to close the […]

Rashard Lewis Breaks the Celtics’ Hearts

It was heartbreaking. Rashard Lewis got past Kevin Garnett and put up a layup that gave the Orlando Magic a two-point lead with only 1.3 seconds remaining in regulation.

Can the Celtics Stay Afloat if KG Sinks?

Kevin Garnett – n. an integral part of the Boston Celtics 2009-10 roster and its chances at winning an eighteenth NBA championship. Kevin Garnett is in the dictionary?
