The Boston Celtics clinched their first-round series against the Atlanta Hawks Thursday, winning a thriller Game 6 at TD Garden, 83-80. Kevin Garnett led the way for Boston, scoring 28 points and adding 14 rebounds.
Al Horford recorded 19 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks, helping the previously lifeless Atlanta Hawks survive the Boston Celtics Tuesday night, 87-86, to force a Game 6. Rajon Rondo stole a Josh Smith inbounds pass with 10 seconds left in the game, giving the Celtics a chance to win the game. Horford and Smith [...]
The Celtics open their 2012 title quest with a first-round matchup against the Atlanta Hawks. The series tips off Sunday evening in Atlanta.
In yet another second game of a back-to-back on the road, the Celtics and their aging bodies and tired legs took their talents to Atlanta to take on the younger Hawks (who had Thursday off, while the Celtics beat the Spurs in San Antonio). The C’s had recently welcomed back Jermaine O’Neal, but were still [...]
Every Monday, I will report on the events of the past week of fantasy basketball. I will go over each position and what particular player that week stood out from all the rest. As always, I will start off with this week’s notable injuries to report on. Injuries Chris Paul (PG), New Orleans Hornets One [...]
I hope the holidays were pleasant for everyone out there. During these hectic times, some people may get caught up in the yuletide spirit and forget to set their rosters each day. I myself was one of these people, and as a result, I lost both of my matchups last week. Oh well, live and [...]
Man, I had some bad matchups in some of my leagues last week. They were almost as bad as Tiger Woods’ driving…BA-ZING!!!! No, seriously though, they weren’t too bad, I just needed an excuse to make a Tiger woods joke. I hope you enjoyed it. Hey, he wasn’t injured, therefore it is OK to make [...]
Before Friday night, the Boston Celtics defeated the Atlanta Hawks in the team’s past seven meetings in the regular season. This time the Hawks prevailed and gave the Celtics their second loss of the season in a 97-86 victory. This Hawks team keeps getting better each and every year as they brought their record to 7-2 [...]
The 2009-10 basketball season is just a couple days away and many fantasy leagues will be drafting their teams this weekend. This is why I took it upon myself to comprise a top-10 list for each position, along with likes/dislikes. In addition to the lists, I will give you the secret to finding success when [...]
Last season, the Hawks pushed the Celtics to the brink in a startling seven-game opening-round playoff series. The Celtics prevailed, and after a slightly bumpy road, won their 17th NBA Championship. Heading into this season, the Hawks were thinking they could compete with the C’s, despite the fact that Boston was the defending NBA Champion. [...]
Kevin Garnett did not play Friday night against the Hawks, as he’s still experiencing soreness in his knee. The Celtics aren’t the same team without Kevin Garnett, but the way Glen Davis is playing in KG’s absence has some hoping KG will just sit out until he’s 100% healthy. Davis finished with 19 points and [...]
The Hawks scored the first basket of the game, but it seemed like that would just about be the only time they lead the entire way. The Celtics dominated the Hawks today by winning 99-65, giving them the series win and the chance to play Lebron James and the Cavs in round two. The Hawks [...]
Joe Johnson….for three!…..and for Game 7. Yep, unbelievable. The Hawks hung in with the Celtics all game long. They were down by double digits, then battled back to four or five point deficits. The Celts entered the fourth quarter with a three-point lead, but the Hawks chipped away until they took the lead and held [...]
The Celtics came back to Boston and did exactly what they needed to do while they were at home: get a win. After the two losses in Atlanta, the Celtics desperately needed to come back home and get back on track. They did just that by controlling the Hawks and beating them 110-85. Game 6 [...]
No one expected this series to go to a fifth game, and certainly no one expected it to go a sixth game. But after tonight’s loss, the series is going to return to Boston on Wednesday night for game five and then back to Atlanta for game six on Friday. The heat was on early [...]
