Brandon Bass Scores Playoff-High 27, Boosts Celtics Past Sixers

Brandon Bass set a playoff-high and tied his career-high with 27 points, as the Boston Celtics cruised past the Philadelphia 76ers, 101-85, in Game 5 Monday night at TD Garden.  The Celtics now hold a crucial 3-2 over the Sixers in their best-of-seven Eastern Conference Semi-final series. Rajon Rondo recorded 14 assists and 13 points, […]

Celtics Implode in Second Half of Game 4; Series Tied 2-2

The Boston Celtics built a big lead Friday night in Philadelphia, then quit. The Philadelphia 76ers, on the other hand, never quit. And once they pulled back into the game, that sustained effort translated into unstoppable momentum, a 92-83 victory over the Celtics in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals, and a 2-2 series […]

Celtics-76ers Round 2 Preview: Can Ray Allen Contribute?

The Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers are no strangers to each other. Along with sharing the same division and the rivalry that goes along with it, the Celtics and Sixers have had stretches in history where the two have had to battle each other in the playoffs for Eastern Conference supremacy year after year. Historical […]

Evan Turner and 76ers Send Message, Obliterate Celtics

Evan Turner scored a career-high 26 points and added nine rebounds as the Philadelphia 76ers crushed the Boston Celtics, 103-71, Wednesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. The victory now pulls the 76ers two games ahead of the Celtics for the Atlantic Division lead and the fourth-seed in the playoffs.

Allen’s 22 Helps Celtics Overcome Foul Disparity and Push Streak to 14

For almost three quarters, nothing was going the Boston Celtics’ way. The Philadelphia 76ers were playing a switching, active and stingy defense that confused and offset the Celtics offensive ball movement. Even when the Celtics got good looks at the basket, the ball always seemed to rim out at the last second, leading to under […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 18

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 Shaquille O’Neal (C), Cleveland Cavaliers The Cavs’ […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 11

Celtics’ Win Streak Ends at 11

All winning streaks have to end at some point or another. For the Celtics, theirs ended after 11 games, their longest streak of the season. It’s just too bad it had to come from the Philadelphia 76ers at home in a 98-97 loss on Friday night. With the loss the Celtics fell to 20-5 on […]

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 4

Uh-oh, I committed a cardinal sin for any fantasy owner. I missed setting my lineups in one league this week, and as a result, I lost 5-4. Any serious fantasy sports player will tell you that the #1 rule is to never forget to set those lineups. Hey, I’m human baby, I make mistakes. More […]

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 Roundup: Week 2

I hate basketball streamers. They are worse than people who stream pitchers in a baseball league. In one of my other leagues, there is a guy who has been streaming for four or more seasons, and it has resulted in four straight finals appearances and a championship. I personally don’t advocate streaming, I think a […]

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 15 (2-2 – 2-8)

Chances are, one owner in every single fantasy basketball league is in a foul mood. He/she may be adjusting their “smack talk” (for you Yahoo! users out there). They may be making angry posts in your league’s message board. They also may be making trade offers with owners who have no idea that Timberwolves stud […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 14 (1-26 – 2-1)

I hope saying the following will not diminish my fantasy status but, is there WNBA fantasy? If there is, I have never heard of or seen it. If it exists, then I wouldn’t play it. I’d rather participate in fantasy NASCAR. Do enough people really have enough in depth knowledge of the WNBA in order […]
