Early Celtics’ Playoff Preview

Following a pair of road losses at New York and Minnesota, the Celtics’ chances of improving their playoff seeding faded to the point that they may find themselves in a battle for seventh place in the Eastern Conference. Boston leads eighth-place Milwaukee by just 2.5 games, and the Bucks own the tie-breaker by virtue of […]

Celtics Get Out Hustled, Blown Out by Pacers

Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce scored 21 a piece, but that wasn’t enough to lift the sluggish Celtics over the Indiana Pacers, as they fell 97-83 Saturday night in Indianapolis. Danny Granger scored 21 for the Pacers, while Darren Collison and Paul George each had 17. The Celtics shooting woes continued as they shot 38 percent […]

Celtics Tie Franchise Low for Points in a Half, Fall to Pacers

The Indiana Pacers had six players score in double figures to combat Ray Allen’s 23 points as the Pacers beat the Boston Celtics 87-74 Friday night. The Celtics scored a mere 25 points in the first half to tie a franchise low for points in a half. The Celtics tied the 25-point low that was […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 17

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 Chris Bosh (PF, C), Toronto Raptors A […]

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 5

Man, I had some bad matchups in some of my leagues last week. They were almost as bad as Tiger Woods’ driving…BA-ZING!!!! No, seriously though, they weren’t too bad, I just needed an excuse to make a Tiger woods joke. I hope you enjoyed it. Hey, he wasn’t injured, therefore it is OK to make […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 3

I’ve been slightly disappointed with my teams over the past two weeks because I am just barely squeaking out 5-4 wins. I’d like to be winning by 6-3 or more, but in the end, winning is winning. After all, when playoff time rolls around, a 5-4 win is just as good as a 9-0 win. […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Championship Week

One valuable lesson was learned for the Championship Week matchup in the Sports of Boston Friends and Family League. I was facing Shotgun from The BlueWorkhorse for all the marbles in the first annual league championship. Our teams were strong (obviously), but I was rotating three roster spots due to injuries by streaming players through free […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 17 (2-16 – 2-22)

With just one month left in the regular fantasy season, you should start making a push for a playoff spot. If you are like me in one of my other leagues, you have no shot at making the playoffs. However, I will still be trying to the very end. I can’t stand it when someone […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 11 (1-5 – 1-11)

I’ve noticed in both my leagues how there is very little trading. I attribute this to basically everyone being so satisfied with their team that they are willing to put the same roster out there every single day and just fill in the holes with random free agents. I mean, it is suiting me well […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 5 (11-24 – 11-30)

I am in two basketball leagues. I saw a funny occurrence with my stats last week. In the SoB league, I have two more roster spots than in my other league. However, in the league with less room for players, I scored more total points than I did in the SoB league. Maybe I should […]

Stupid Scheduling Helps Pacers Beat Celtics

So, the Celtics played in opening night against Cleveland on Tuesday and won. Then, they had Wednesday and Thursday off and played Friday night against the Bulls in a blowout win. Then, they immediately hopped on a plane to play IN Indiana the next evening. I know it’s early in the season, and it sounds […]
