Pierce, Celtics Slow Down Curry and Warriors

Paul Pierce scored 26 points on just 15 shots and hauled in eight rebounds to lead the Celtics past the Golden State Warriors on Friday night, 94-86. A game removed from scoring 54 points at Madison Square Garden, Stephen Curry could not get it going against the Celtics defense and finished with 26 point on […]

Grading the Celtics at the All-Star break

All-Star Weekend is upon us and the Celtics, except for East starter Kevin Garnett, have five full days of rest before embarking on a five-game west coast road trip that starts Tuesday at Denver. The Celtics enter the break in third place in the Atlantic Division at 28-24, and have won eight of their last nine games without […]

Celtics Win Third in a Row Despite Rondo Injury

The Boston Celtics won their third straight, and fifth in six games, with a 98-93 win against the Utah Jazz at the TD Garden. Paul Pierce led the way for the C’s with a game-high 23 points, 15 of them in the 3rd quarter, and three field goals from beyond the arc. Celtics Bench Stepped […]

Jason Terry and Celtics Nation Need to be Reminded There Are 82 Games in an NBA Season

The Celtics are 2-2. Get over it. You can look at this one of two ways. Either the Celtics have played four games and are yet to really hit their groove, or “OH MY GAWD DUDE THE CELTICS ARE IN FRIGGIN’ TROUBLE. ALL WE GOT IS RONDO, PIERCE AND GARNETT AND THESE OTHER DUDES BLOW […]

Buyout Season: 5 Newly Free Agents That Could Join Celtics

The Celtics’ acquisitions during buyout season have been a mixed bag in recent years. On one hand, P.J. Brown, Sam Cassel and Stephon Marbury all contributed during long playoff runs. On the other hand, Miki Moore, Troy Murphy and Carlos Arroyo struggled to get on the court in their brief stints with the club. With […]

Chris Wilcox to Have Heart Surgery, Out For Season

No player on the Celtics bench has shown more heart this season than maybe Chris Wilcox, but ironically, the big man will have to miss the rest of the season due to his need for heart surgery. “While we are saddened that Chris will not be able to play again this season, the most important […]

Celtics Report Card: Lakers Drown C’s Optimism

After blowing a five-point lead against the Los Angeles Lakers with less than three minutes to go, the Boston Celtics effectively ruined my Sunday evening with a whole new meaning to “March Madness.” The Celtics were also flat-out flattened by the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday, losing by 32 with first place in the Atlantic division […]

Like in 2007-08, Championship Celtics can be Built Around Rondo

Michael Felger said on Felger and Mazz Tuesday that “teams can not be built around a point guard. It does not work” I disagree: with the proper players around Rajon Rondo, he can lead a team and win championships. He might not average 20 points per game, but he can absolutely be the foundation of something […]

Celtics Starters Dominate Bucks, Win Second Straight

The Boston Celtics have heard the same criticisms over and over this season: Their starters are too old. They can’t put up big scores. They can’t rebound. Wednesday night at the TD Garden, at least for a night, they silenced their critics. Every Celtic starter scored in double digits, and the Celtics grabbed a season-high […]

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 Bludgeoned by Pistons… Again

In all fairness, the Detroit Pistons (11-22) have been doing much better as of late. However, the Boston Celtics losing five of six games – including two to the Pistons in the last week – does not inspire confidence in the fans. The Celtics’ 96-81 loss at the Palace of Auburn Hills Sunday evening punctuates […]

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 Twice Nearly Claimed Knicks’ Jeremy Lin Off Waivers

Apparently, some dude on the Knicks is having a decent season. Jerry something-or-other. Played for Yale, I think. Were he a Celtic, I might show more enthusiasm for point guard Jeremy Lin and the seven consecutive wins his team has rattled off since his move into the starting spot. And it appears I nearly got […]

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 […]

Celtics Report Card: Leave it to Cleveland

The first quarter of the year has come and gone, and the Boston Celtics started this week well on their way to a pretty good grade. They mustered a dominant defensive performance and a massive comeback in a home-and-home against the Orlando Magic, then managed a quality win over a playoff-caliber Indiana Pacers squad that […]
