Suns Burn Depleted Celtics 116-98

You knew the Celtics would be in trouble Wednesday night against the high-powered Suns, as the vaunted “Big Three” had been reduced to one after injuries took down Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. The “one” remaining member of the talented trio, Ray Allen, poured in a poor effort and as a result, the Celtics looked a […]

Celtics Outpace Indiana in Boston

If it weren’t for Chicago blowing a 35 point 3rd quarter lead to Sacramento, we’d be talking more about this mini version. In a game of halves, Boston won an ugly one 103-94. With Kevin Garnett out with a thigh bruise, Indiana took advantage early and jumped out to an early lead. Indiana opened up […]

Boston Bullies Chicago, Wins 10th Straight

Boston picked up a convincing win over the Chicago Bulls Saturday, winning on the road 106-80 to pick up their 10th straight win. With the win, the Celtics extend their Eastern Conference lead over Orlando to two games. Things didn’t always look that way, though, as the Bulls got out to a quick 6-0 lead. […]

Celtics Tame Bobcats

The Boston Celtics and Charlotte Bobcats met up Tuesday night. Both teams were riding four-game win streaks, and both teams had formidable stats backing them up. The Celtics came into the game boasting the best road record in the NBA, whereas the Bobcats were holding opposing teams to the fewest points in the NBA (the […]

Pierce’s 27 Helps Power Celtics Past 76ers

The Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers met up Wednesday night in a clash of Atlantic Division rivals. Boston was coming off of a dramatic overtime victory in New York against the Knicks, where Kevin Garnett drained a last second bucket to win the game. Tonight was another high-scoring affair, with both teams in foul […]

Celtics Survive in Minnesota, 92-90

How did the Celtics, a team that has dominated all opponents so far this season, barely beat the Minnesota Timberwolves, 92-90, on Wednesday night? Let’s find out. First Quarter: Timberwolves Come Out Hot Wednesday night’s game began with the Celtics and the Timberwolves trading baskets, which led to an early 6-4 lead. Unfortunately, it would not […]

Grading the Celtics Backup Point Guard Options

It should not be a secret to any Celtics fan that the team is without a true backup point guard. In the 2007-2008 campaign, the team picked up Sam Cassell in March, and he helped guide the team towards their 17th NBA Championship. Last season, the Celtics again entered the campaign without a true backup […]

Celtics Roll in Preseason Finale

No KG, no Ray, no Big Baby — no problem. The Celtics dominated in their final preseason tune-up against the Cleveland Cavaliers Wednesday night, coasting to a 96-82 win in front of a sellout crowd at Value City Arena on the campus of Ohio State University. With newcomers Rasheed Wallace, Marquis Daniels, Shelden Williams, and […]

Celtics Make Raptors Extinct in Toronto

The Celtics extended their preseason record to an NBA second-best 5-1 (behind the 5-0 Magic) by taking it to the Toronto Raptors with a 101-82 victory Sunday afternoon. The familiar pattern once again manifested itself as the Celtics (one guess as to how this sentence will end…) committed their first turnover 14 seconds into the […]

Luck of the Irish is with the Celtics

It was a relatively close game for much of the afternoon as the Celtics defeated the New Jersey Nets 100-93. No time at all was wasted as Yi Jianlian of the Nets committed the fist foul of the game just two seconds in on the scramble for the opening tip-off. Rasheed Wallace came into the […]

Eddie House: 2008-2009 Celtics Review

Eddie House  had a much better year than last and continues to be a threat off the bench for the Celts. He was able to start appearing in different situations not just as a point guard, but also has a shooting guard on occasion too. House really benefited from the arrival of Stephon Marbury as […]

Celtics Offseason Watch: Big Baby, House, Yao and more

As free agency nears, the Celtics not only have holes to fill on their roster, but also have some free agents of their own to negotiate with. The hottest of these names is forward Glen “Big Baby” Davis. The Boston Globe is reporting that Danny Ainge will extend a qualifying offer to Davis by the […]

Was the Celtics Season a Letdown?

Last summer I made a very early and bold prediction that the Celtics would repeat as champions again and that Tony Allen was going to develop into their dominant sixth man. Well, now we know that both of these predictions turned up wrong, and if those were my two big hopes for the season, then […]

Celtics Give up Game 6 to Orlando

Game 6 was a terrible game, as both teams played poorly the whole way through. There were dumb fouls, turnovers, and missed shots all over the place. This hardly looked like two of the three best teams in the Eastern Conference fighting to play in the next round. However, Orlando came out the victorious, beating Boston 83-75 […]
