Celtics Report Card: Better than the Red Sox

I’m just going to go ahead and say it: 2-2 looks a whole lot better than 0-3. Maybe it isn’t fair to compare the Boston Celtics’ week, as they round into end-of-season form, to that of the Boston Red Sox, but after witnessing the debacle in Detroit, somehow I find myself forgiving Boston’s basketball darlings […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 15

After another week, we’re starting to see some teams punch their postseason tickets, and some teams bow out. The Thunder have weakened themselves out of the #1 spot out West. The Wildcard races are also pretty close as well, which should make the last 10 games or so that much more entertaining. So with the […]

Celtics Disappear in Second Half, Fall to Deng-Led Bulls

Luol Deng had 26 points, six rebounds and four steals, as the Derrick Rose-less Chicago Bulls defeated the Boston Celtics, 93-86, Thursday night in Chicago. Paul Pierce led the Celtics with 22 points and eight rebounds, but could only muster five points in the second half. With the loss, Boston now trails Indiana by three […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 14

After another week, the drama is picking up in some areas. The 76ers have slid clear out of the division lead. The Knicks are out Amar’e Stoudemire and Jeremy Lin, but have a decent lead on the last spot, for now. The Lakers are running into a mini tough patch, and the Clippers are making […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 13

March is coming to an end, and it’s time for some tactical maneuvering. Teams that could use some help will be looking for some help via bought out free agents and the D-League. San Antonio already made a big move signing Boris Diaw after his buyout by Charlotte. Ryan Hollins was brought on by the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 12

There’s already only 1/3 of the season remaining, and there’s no shortage of entertainment. There are lots of close races, including divisions and the final playoff spots. There hasn’t been much movement in the seeding, though, except for the Lakers rising up and putting some room between them and the Clippers. And now that the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 11

After another week of NBA action, the playoff spots are starting to become solidified, but who gets what is still much less concrete (especially in the West). The Bulls and Thunder still lead the way, though the Heat aren’t exactly exiting gracefully. The Celtics and Knicks continue to disappoint, while the Rockets and Spurs continue […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 10

Just now we’re reaching the 10-week mark of the season, and it’s already more than halfway through. The Bulls, Heat and Thunder continue to be the teams to beat, while the lower half of the brackets are fighting to avoid them (though they have made great progress to secure a spot to begin with). The […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 9

It’s All-Star Weekend, and we’re now halfway through an abbreviated season. The Heat, Bulls and Thunder all continue to be on top, while other predicted contenders are continuing to bring up the rear and middle of the brackets. Better things were expected from Boston and New York, but that’s where they are. The race for […]

Celtics Report Card: Three Strikes and You’re Out

On Wednesday night, the Boston Celtics let a home game slip away against the then 8-22 Detroit Pistons. Strike one. The next night, the C’s couldn’t manage to replicate their Sunday afternoon performance against the Derrick Rose-less Chicago Bulls, losing 89-80 and allowing Luol Deng and Carlos Boozer 23 points each and a combined 60 […]

Celtics Fail to Rebound, Lose Ugly Game to Bulls

Luol Deng and Carlos Boozer scored 23 points apiece, while Rajon Rondo had 17 points, eight assists and seven rebounds as the Derrick Rose-less Chicago Bulls wore the down the Boston Celtics, 89-80, Thursday night in Chicago. Kevin Garnett had 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Celtics and Joakim Noah pitched in 15 and […]

Celtics Report Card: A Week to Forget

The NFL season is over. As if that wasn’t miserable enough, the Boston Celtics were unable to vanquish their most hated and bitter rivals (the Los Angeles Lakers), losing when Pau Gasol’s ugly mug and disgusting neckbeard scared the ball away from the basket at the end of overtime. Then they couldn’t even bounce back […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 7

Well into February, there’s still plenty of action in the NBA, especially in the suddenly turbulent West. The Knicks are Rockets are among teams making a resurgence, while teams like Dallas are continuing to fortify their positions. With plenty of new standings to go over, let’s look at what would happen if the playoffs started […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 6

Another week by, and the All-Star starters are already in place. Only one, Carmelo Anthony, isn’t from a currently seeded team, so it should be a good game. In the meantime, teams are still shaking things up. Houston is falling while Miami is going back up. But Chicago and Oklahoma City are still running the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 5

After another week of action, things are starting to really heat up. Houston is rising, while Orlando is falling. Even Milwaukee’s getting in on the action. It looks like plenty will be shaken up in the rest of the season, so let’s look at what would happen if the playoffs started as of Sunday, January […]
