Gordon’s Four Treys Lead Pistons Past Celtics

Even the best teams can’t play their starters for 48 minutes, and neither the Boston Celtics nor the Detroit Pistons are among the best teams. Both teams needed contributions from their benches Wednesday night at TD Garden, and the Pistons’ reserves won. Reserve guard Ben Gordon hit four fourth-quarter three-pointers, part of a 22-point night […]

Rondo Leads Shaq-less Celtics Past Pistons

While Republicans were busy winning House and Senate seats in 49 other states (the Democrats swept Massachusetts in the House again), the Celtics were busy heading up to Motown to duke it out with the winless Pistons. These aren’t your father’s Pistons, or even the Pistons of 2008. These Pistons are a real sorry bunch, […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 22

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 Vince Carter (SG, SF), Orlando Magic Carter […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: All-Star Break Recap

Instead of the usual bells and whistles for this week, I thought it would be fun to look back at what we have seen this season and highlight some of the good, the bad, and the ugly. The good will obviously be players who have outperformed expectations. The bad will be those players who have […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 7

I mentioned last week how I had to face a notorious streamer in one of my leagues and my concern over whether or not my honest, clean-cut ways of playing would have me triumph over the forces of evil. As it turns out, good always beats evil as I won that particular matchup by a […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 6

Oh no! I am facing a notorious streamer this week in one of my leagues. Since he started this strategy, he is has won two league championships in a row. Personally, I don’t like facing streamers (obviously), but hey, as long as the league is set up to let you get away with it, then […]

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 […]

Ben Gordon In Doubt For Tonight?

According to the Boston Herald, an MRI taken yesterday has confirmed Ben Gordon has a strained left hamstring. According to the diagnosis, he was injured in the second quarter of Game Four. Yet, I distinctly remember an OT three-point shot made by Gordon to tie the game, quickly followed by a pronounced grab to the […]

Bulls Tie Series in Double-OT Win Over Celtics

The Celtics and Bulls are playing in what is easily the best series so for in the NBA Playoffs. Two players, Rajon Rondo and Derrick Rose, are enjoying their coming-out parties on the national stage, and the Bulls are emerging as a future contender in the East. After Chicago’s thrilling 121-118 double-overtime victory in Game […]

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 […]

Allen Slams Door on Gordon, Bulls to Tie Series 1-1

The University of Connecticut had to have been proud Monday night. Two of the school’s best all-time players, Ray Allen and Ben Gordon, dueled in an epic Game 2. Fortunately, Allen (30 points, 9-18 shooting) got the last laugh, hitting a huge three-pointer with two seconds left to lift the Celtics to a 118-115 win. Ben […]

Welcome to the NBA: The Thunder?

In this edition of the Four-Point Play, I’ll look into the new NBA team in Oklahoma City. I’ll also discuss how stupid Mario Chalmers is, Ben Gordon’s possible move to Russia, and the Celtics taking yet another tour with the Larry O’Brien Trophy. 1. It was widely reported Wednesday that the new NBA team in […]

Another Bounce Back for the Celtics

Give the Celtics credit, whenever they take a loss (it’s only happened three times) they always bounce back in a huge way. This time, the C’s destroyed the Bulls 107-82 (NBA.com box score). Chicago only had one starter in double figures. Simply pathetic…more on this later. First, I must congratulate Paul Pierce on leading the […]
