Rafer Alston Suspended One Game by NBA

Orlando’s chance to take a 2-1 series lead Friday night took a major hit as the NBA has suspended point guard Rafer Alston for Game 3 of the first round series. Alston was supended for slapping Eddie House in the back of his head in the third quarter of Game 2, as shown earlier on […]

Video: Rafer Alston Slaps Eddie House

Eddie House gave the Magic all sorts of fits in Game 2, including Rafer “Skip to my lou” Alston, who slapped House in the back of the head after the prolific three-point shooter nailed another shot. House turned around and a staredown ensued before referees separated the two. Eddie described the incident after the game better […]

Eddie House and the Celtics Tie Up Series 1-1

If someone told me that Paul Pierce only played 16 minutes and only scored three points in a critical Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals I would have panicked immediately. The sad part about this statement is that most of it is true and Pierce was that ineffective due to foul trouble early in […]

Celtics Comeback isn’t Enough; Orlando Takes 1-0 Lead

Boston found themselves down by as much as 22 points early in the minutes of the third quarter, but made a valiant effort to get back into this very tough Game One match-up against the Orlando Magic in the Eastern Conference semi-finals. Thanks to great play by Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, and yes, Brian Scalabrine, […]

Celtics Win Game 7, Beat Bulls in Classic Series

In Game 7 of one of the greatest NBA playoff series of all time, the Celtics and Bulls resembled two fighters in the 15th round of a title bout. The players’ arms dragged at their sides, their movements grew sluggish, and free throws (at least for the Celtics) stopped falling. With the Celtics starters running […]

Celtics Blow Out Bulls; Lead Series 2-1

The Celtics went into Chicago looking to win at least one game out of the next two to try and recover the home court advantage they lost after losing Game 1. They did just that and destroyed the Bulls 107-86 in impressive fashion to take the 2-1 series lead. The game was all Celtics and the Bulls […]

Celtics End Season on High Note, Beat Wizards

The Celtics finished another great season with a win against the Washington Wizards, 115-107. The Big Three did not play and regular starters Rajon Rondo and Kendrick Perkins each saw less than 15 minutes of action. As a result, the Celtics went with a creative starting five with Rajon Rondo, Stephon Marbury, Kendrick Perkins, Tony Allen, and Leon […]

Celtics Hold On Late to Beat Nets

The Celtics made a comeback and then survived a very late fourth quarter scare to beat the Nets 106-104 Wednesday night. Rajon Rondo led the charge for the Celtics who once again played without the services of Kevin Garnett. Rondo finished the night with 31 points, nine rebounds, five assists, and three steals. He was great on both ends […]

Celtics Pull Away In Win Over Thunder

Through the first three quarters of the game, the Celtics and Thunder were neck and neck. In the fourth quarter, however, the C’s took over and outscored Oklahoma City 32-16 to win 103-84. Glen Davis and Paul Pierce were Boston’s big stars as Kevin Garnett sat out again to rest his weak knee. Pierce led all scorers […]

Big Baby, Celtics Blow By Grizzlies in Second Half

The Celtics were in a close game with the Grizzlies as the first half ended, which should never happen. But, by the game’s final buzzer, the C’s had blown away the Grizz thanks to a career-high 24 points on 8-11 shooting from Glen “Big Baby” Davis in a 105-87 win. Davis made up for a […]

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 strong 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 […]

Sam Cassell Traded to Kings

With an open roster spot in mind, the Celtics today agreed to trade player/coach Sam Cassell to the Sacramento Kings for a conditional second round draft choice. Cassell makes the veteran minimum so the Celts aren’t saving much money but it seems as though the team is freeing up a roster spot in order to […]

Celtics Beat Hornets, Lose Ray Allen

Lately, the knock against the Celtics was that they couldn’t beat the best from the West. Last year, they dominated the Western Conference in the regular season, but this year seemed different. They were swept by the Lakers this year, losing last week by one point in overtime. They also took a tough loss to […]

Lakers Defeat Celtics in Overtime

If Pau Gasol could pick one block of his season as his most important, he would probably pick Thursday night’s against Ray Allen that sealed the win for the Lakers in Boston. L.A. defeated the Celtics for the second time this year 110-109 in overtime in quite the nail-biter. There were some bad calls here and […]

Eddie House, Celtics Notch 9th Straight Win

The Sacramento Kings came into the T.D. Banknorth Garden and looked as if they were going to put up a bit of a challenge for the streaking Celtics, but that changed in a hurry. The Kings had an early 10-point lead on the Celtics, but Boston easily erased the deficit and were down by only two […]
