Celtics Player Review: Mikki Moore

I actually had never heard of Mikki Moore when the Celtics were interested in him midway through the season. He did not have much hype and it seemed like he was just going to add a little bit of height for the C’s bench. That was just about all Moore was for the Celtics, and he did not […]

Celtics Player Review: Brian Scalabrine

SCALLLL!! The chants for the redhead never stop when Brian Scalabrine comes into a game. This season proved no different as Scalabrine continued to be a fan favorite despite his lackluster playing skills. However, Scal proved his worth in the playoffs this season and became a solid backup for the very depleted Celtics bench.

Celtics Player Review: Gabe Pruitt

Not much happened this season for Gabe Pruitt in his second year in the NBA. He saw some action here and there but never really found much of a role with the team this season. His role was diminished further after the acquisition of Stephon Marbury. The young guard also had some personal problems after […]

Celtics Player Reviews: J.R. Giddens and Bill Walker

Let’s begin the Celtics season reviews with the rookie pair that could someday leave their mark on the NBA and hopefully on the Celtics. J.R. Giddens and Bill Walker were the top two draft picks for the Celtics before last season. Giddens was the Celtics’ first round pick and Walker was acquired from a trade with Washington […]

Was the Celtics Season a Letdown?

Last summer I made a very early and bold prediction that the Celtics would repeat as champions again and that Tony Allen was going to develop into their dominant sixth man. Well, now we know that both of these predictions turned up wrong, and if those were my two big hopes for the season, then […]

Celtics Give up Game 6 to Orlando

Game 6 was a terrible game, as both teams played poorly the whole way through. There were dumb fouls, turnovers, and missed shots all over the place. This hardly looked like two of the three best teams in the Eastern Conference fighting to play in the next round. However, Orlando came out the victorious, beating Boston 83-75 […]

Big Baby Hits Buzzer Beater in Game 4 Win

The Celtics were in control of Game 4 for much of the second half, but Orlando would not go away. With just a few seconds left in the game, the Magic found themselves up by one point. However, the ball found its way to Glen “Big Baby” Davis, not the one who would normally take […]

Eddie House and the Celtics Tie Up Series 1-1

If someone told me that Paul Pierce only played 16 minutes and only scored three points in a critical Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals I would have panicked immediately. The sad part about this statement is that most of it is true and Pierce was that ineffective due to foul trouble early in […]

Celtics Comeback isn’t Enough; Orlando Takes 1-0 Lead

Boston found themselves down by as much as 22 points early in the minutes of the third quarter, but made a valiant effort to get back into this very tough Game One match-up against the Orlando Magic in the Eastern Conference semi-finals. Thanks to great play by Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, and yes, Brian Scalabrine, […]

Bulls Win Epic Game 6 in 3OT, Force Game 7

Through five games, the first round series between the Bulls and Celtics has been extremely exciting, and Game 6 was no different after a triple-overtime game that spanned four hours. Unfortunately, the Bulls took Game 6 and forced Game 7 back in Boston by winning 128-127. Ray Allen was superb in the loss and if it was not […]

Celtics Fend Off Pesky Bulls for 3-2 Series Lead

In a tight game, Boston managed to come out on top 106-104 to take the 3-2 series lead in what has been an exciting first round of playoff basketball. It all came down to Brad Miller, who missed two free throws with 2.0 seconds left in overtime that would have tied the game. Paul Pierce really […]

Celtics Blow Out Bulls; Lead Series 2-1

The Celtics went into Chicago looking to win at least one game out of the next two to try and recover the home court advantage they lost after losing Game 1. They did just that and destroyed the Bulls 107-86 in impressive fashion to take the 2-1 series lead. The game was all Celtics and the Bulls […]

Celtics End Season on High Note, Beat Wizards

The Celtics finished another great season with a win against the Washington Wizards, 115-107. The Big Three did not play and regular starters Rajon Rondo and Kendrick Perkins each saw less than 15 minutes of action. As a result, the Celtics went with a creative starting five with Rajon Rondo, Stephon Marbury, Kendrick Perkins, Tony Allen, and Leon […]

Celtics Hold On Late to Beat Nets

The Celtics made a comeback and then survived a very late fourth quarter scare to beat the Nets 106-104 Wednesday night. Rajon Rondo led the charge for the Celtics who once again played without the services of Kevin Garnett. Rondo finished the night with 31 points, nine rebounds, five assists, and three steals. He was great on both ends […]

Celtics Pull Away In Win Over Thunder

Through the first three quarters of the game, the Celtics and Thunder were neck and neck. In the fourth quarter, however, the C’s took over and outscored Oklahoma City 32-16 to win 103-84. Glen Davis and Paul Pierce were Boston’s big stars as Kevin Garnett sat out again to rest his weak knee. Pierce led all scorers […]
