The NBA All-Star Game: Who Belongs Now, Who Belongs in the Future?

This weekend, the NBA’s most talented players will convene for the 2011 All-Star Game at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Pierce Tops 20,000 Points as Celtics Top Bucks in Overtime

Paul Pierce has made a career out of driving to the hoop with sufficient herky-jerk motion to draw the foul and get himself to the free-throw line. He has shot more free throws and made more free throws than anyone else in Celtics history. So, it was only fitting that it was at the free-throw […]

Celtics Win Eighth Straight, Beat Bucks

The Celtics improved to an impressive 17-4 Tuesday night and won their eighth straight game, beating the Bucks 98-89. For the eighth straight time, the Celtics have Kevin Garnett to thank.
