Beasts of the East Defeat Best of the West in NBA All-Star Game

The Eastern Conference All-Stars defeated the Western Conference All-Stars 141-139 in front of the largest crowd to ever watch a basketball game. A record 108,713 NBA fans descended upon Cowboys Stadium to watch the best athletes in the world (the U.S. Basketball team – plus Dirk Nowitzki, Steve Nash, and Pau Gasol) put on a […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 15

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 Chauncey Billups (PG), Denver Nuggets Billups suffered […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 10

With the end of football’s fantasy season being so hectic, I have been neglecting my basketball teams lately. As a result, I dropped to 10th in one of my leagues, thanks in large part to leaving Kevin Durant on my bench all week. Yes, I know I have to get my s**t together, so don’t […]

No Rondo. No Pierce. No Garnett. No Problem?

The last time I was certain the Celtics would lose was during their franchise-worst 24-58 season in 2006-2007. Somewhere in the first half of the infamous 18-game losing streak, I stopped thinking the Celtics would lose every night, in part because teams usually don’t lose that many games in a row in any sport, period. […]

Celtics Down Raptors 116-103

The Boston Celtics pushed their win streak to three with a convincing 116-103 victory over the visiting Toronto Raptors on Friday night.  The big question coming into the game was whether or not the Celtics could defeat an inferior opponent in convincing fashion.  It took a Kevin Garnett buzzer beater in overtime for the Celtics […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 1

Week 1 is in the books. There is no better feeling (in the fantasy realm anyways) than the first week of a fantasy sport. I myself was at a friend’s birthday celebration at a sports bar on Friday night. Instead of paying attention to the festivities around me, I had my eyes glued on one […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 22 (3-23 – 3-29)

Week one of the fantasy playoffs are in the books. Since I had a bye-week, I had to sit idly by and watch the action from the sidelines instead of being apart of the action. However, I return to the game this week and am eager to continue my winning ways. Injury Roundup Stephen Jackson […]

Celtics Sweep Season Series Against Toronto in OT

The Celtics took their second game in a row and started a new winning streak of against the Raptors Monday night. They beat Toronto for the second night in row, 115-109 in OT. Paul Pierce played exceptionally well in a comeback win where the Celtics were down most of the game until the fourth quarter. […]

Celtics End Losing Streak with Win in Toronto

A nearly flawless Ray Allen scored a season-high 36 points, including a NBA season-high eight 3-pointers, and the Boston Celtics withstood a late Toronto rally to beat the Raptors 94-88 on Sunday afternoon. They snapped a four-game losing streak with the win. Allen shot 11-14 from the field and 8-10 from 3-point land in the […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 8 (12-15 – 12-21)

Just thought I’d use this time to take a cheap shot at SoB’s Dan. In another league, Dan was so optimistic and cocky that he had the best team that he guaranteed that he would not only make the playoffs but, he would win his matchup every week. He claimed to have no holes in […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 4 (11-17 – 11-23)

In one of my leagues, I forgot to play one player on Sunday. Thinking it to be no big deal, I checked the box scores at the end of the day and then checked Yahoo!’s Stat Tracker and discovered that if I had played this one man, I would have tied two categories and won […]

Ray Allen Leads Way in Win Over Raptors

Playing at a time slot (12:30 p.m. on a Sunday) that was unlikely to draw many New England-area viewers, the Celtics enjoyed yet another victory, beating the Raptors in Toronto 118-103. Ray Allen led seven players in double figures with a very efficient 21 points. Allen was 8-12 from the field, including 5-7 from 3-point […]

Pierce Scores 22 In Fourth to Lift Celtics

Paul Pierce had a huge game Monday night against the Raptors, scoring 36 points (22 of those coming in the fourth quarter) to lead the Celtics in another comeback win, 94-87. The Truth finished 10-22 from the field and added nine rebounds, four assists, and a block to complete his night. Toronto coach Sam Mitchell […]

Raptors for Three!

In a high-scoring, competitive game, the Celtics came up short on the defensive side of the ball in a 114-112 loss to the Toronto Raptors. Toronto shot an astounding 15-21 from 3-point range and 19-19 (100%!!!) from the FT line. They needed every shot they got in winning by 2 points. Jose Calderon led the […]
