NBA Playoffs 2010: Celtics-Cavaliers Series Preview

The Boston Celtics made short work of the Miami Heat in their opening-round series, finishing off Dwayne Wade and Co. in just five games. Unfortunately, the road to the NBA Finals doesn’t get any easier for the C’s, as they prepare for a second-round series with LeBron James and the No. 1-seeded Cleveland Cavaliers. The […]

Pierce’s Buzzer-Beater Has Celtics Thinking Sweep

Paul Pierce scored 32 points, including a buzzer-beating 21-foot jumper, helping the Boston Celtics defeat the Miami Heat 100-98 at America Airlines Arena in Miami on Friday night. Through the first three quarters of the game, it was a familiar re-run episode of Celtics vs. Heat. Boston’s “Big Three” and Rajon Rondo, all in double-figures, […]

Twice as Nice, Garnett-less Celtics Take 2-0 Series Lead

No Kevin Garnett? No problem for the Boston Celtics, who made the Heat look like high school players trying to keep up with the big boys on the court. The Celtics blew by the Heat to take a two-game lead in the first round of the NBA playoffs on Tuesday night with a blowout win […]

Celtics Use Strong Second Half to Take Game 1 From Heat

The Boston Celtics held the Miami Heat to just 32 points in the second half en route to an 85-76 Game 1 victory at the TD Garden on Saturday night. Unfortunately the victory may have been a costly one for the Celtics. Kevin Garnett was hit with two technical fouls after elbowing Quentin Richardson in […]

Celtics Need to Finish Strong

At 82 games, the NBA regular season is a marathon, especially for an older team like the Boston Celtics. So the big question is, should the Celtics sprint to the finish line, or coast into the postseason allowing their veteran starters to rest? It’s an interesting question, and not an easy one to answer. The […]

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 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. […]

Glen Davis in the NFL?

Football and Basketball are not that different. Both sports require you to be freakishly athletic, strong, and jumping ability is a must. You have to be good with your hands whether you are an offensive lineman trying to fend off a defensive end, a wide receiver trying to grab a pass, or a shooting guard […]

Celtics Close in on No. 2 Seed, Beat Heat

The Celtics have seized their late-season opportunity to grab hold of the Eastern Conference’s No. 2 seed. With a 105-98 win over the Heat Friday night, the Celts have won six straight games, and now lead the Magic by two games with three left to play. Paul Pierce helped ensure the C’s second straight 60-win […]

Pierce Helps Celtics Clinch Atlantic

As if there was any doubt, the Celtics officially clinched the Atlantic Division Wednesday night. The 2nd place 76ers can win no more than 51 games (the C’s current win total), and the Celts have already won the season series tie-breaker. In a game without Ray Allen (out with an elbow injury), Kevin Garnett (out […]

Celtics Never Give up in Loss to Heat

The Celtics and Heat played a close game in the first half with many lead changes, but a┬ástrong third quarter for Miami led to a big lead to start the fourth. However, the Celtics fought back throughout the final quarter and managed to get within one point, but still came up short against Miami in […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 18 (2-23 – 3-1)

There are only three weeks left in the fantasy regular season. If you are mathematically out of the playoffs then please don’t stop trying. I find that when I am in that situation, it is fun to play “spoiler.” If I face a team on the cusp of making it to the playoffs or facing […]

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 6 (12-1 – 12-7)

The lesson for this week’s Fantasy Basketball Review is to always…ALWAYS set your rosters. There are a few ways to do it: you can set your roster for the week if you don’t plan on making any pickups, or you can set your roster everyday. Usually, I elect option B, but I missed on day […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 2 (11-3 – 11-9)

Two weeks in and where do you stand? Don’t sweat it, this is a marathon, not a sprint. What I haven’t seen much of this season is a breakout performer. It just seems the usual suspects are the ones who are the best, which is what is supposed to happen. We will see though, we […]
