Celtics Pound Orlando for 3-0 Series Lead, One Win Away From Finals

This game was over in the first quarter. This series was over and given a brilliant summation with just under 9 minutes in the first half, with an all-out hustle play by Rajon Rondo that would make Larry Bird proud, to dive and take the ball (and the series) away from Jason Williams and the […]

Celtics Hold on Late to Win Game 1, Steal Home-Court

Here’s the facts from Sunday afternoon’s Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals: Jameer Nelson outplayed Rajon Rondo.

Oh…and most important, the Celtics somehow held on after a late rally by the Magic to […]

Rondo’s Stellar Play May Force Cavs to Pick Their Poison in Game 5

Celtic’s point guard Rajon Rondo recorded 29 points, 18 rebounds, and 13 assists in the Game 4 victory over Cleveland on Sunday, proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is the second-best player in this series behind LeBron James.

It was heartbreaking. Rashard Lewis got past Kevin Garnett and put up a layup that gave the Orlando Magic a two-point lead with only 1.3 seconds remaining in regulation.
