Kevin Garnett scored 26 points, pulled down 10 rebounds, and helped the Celtics erase a seven point deficit late in the fourth quarter en route to a 116-110 overtime victory over the Orlando Magic. Paul Pierce finished with 23 points and had a chance to win the game in regulation, but his fadeaway over Arron [...]
This was the Celtics team we were promised in the preseason.

Rajon Rondo dished out 16 assists and grabbed 8 rebounds. Kevin [...]
With the news that Brandon Bass will opt out of the remainder of his contract, the Boston Celtics now face the question of whether or not to sign him and for how much. In order to figure out if the Celtics should re-sign the 27 year old power forward, let’s take a look back at Bass’s [...]
The Boston Celtics have locked up the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. But because NBA playoff rules for some reason give the #5 seed home-court for the first round if they have a better record, the Celtics may have to start on the road. That makes sense, except that it completely obsoletes the [...]
Paul Pierce might be nearing the finish line of a career that will end in the Hall of Fame and a spot in the TD Garden rafters. But if these are Pierce’s last games, The Truth wants to go out in style. Pierce scored a game-high 29 points and recorded a career-best 14 assists, carrying [...]
In the past several months, Boston sports fans have seen some of their favorite players leave town for other franchises. Jonathan Papelbon bolted for a sack of cash in Philadelphia and Glen “Big Baby” Davis was sent to Orlando in a sign-and-trade. What initially struck me about both of these events was the lack of [...]
The Boston Celtics got double-doubles from Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, plus double-digit scoring from three more, coming all the way from 27 down to beat the Orlando Magic 91-83 Thursday night at the Amway Center. It was Celtics’ biggest comeback in 16 seasons.

Celtics GM Danny Ainge reeled in a good one when he acquired Brandon Bass this off-season. Bass has emerged as the Celtics’ big fish off the bench. He has taken the bait and bought into the Doc Rivers’ system. The Celtics surely won’t be looking to throw this one back. Ok, I know, too many [...]
After previewing the Eastern Conference’s non-contenders in Part 1, Sports of Boston concludes with a look at the likely playoff-bound teams.
Chris Paul is headed to the Los Angeles Clippers. David West signed a two-year deal with the Indiana Pacers. Celtics’ GM Danny Ainge didn’t make the league shaking moves it looked like he might. I’m kind of glad he didn’t. I want to watch Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, and Rajon Rondo chase one [...]
The Celtics acquired forward Brandon Bass in a sign-and-trade deal with the Magic on Friday. Heading to Orlando is Glen “Big Baby” Davis, who will earn $26 million over four years. The 6-8 Bass, who will be 27 in April, will make $4 million this year and has a player option for $4 million next [...]
Ever wonder what NBA players did with their down time during the lockout? Hit the clubs? Record a hit rap single? Join a team overseas? Make a cameo on Basketball Wives? Not Glen “Big Baby” Davis. Big Baby stayed productive during his time off, getting in touch with his inner self with some hands-on arts [...]
Second base…tastes like chicken? Apparently, that’s what Dustin Pedroia is going for with his new nickname, the Muddy Chicken. Pedroia has always been known as the little guy with the big sense of humor, so this shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. But does this signal the end of the Laser Show? Let’s hope [...]
35, 34, 36, 39, 25. Those numbers represent the ages of the Celtics’ starters if the season was to start in October. Rajon Rondo of course is the youngest at 25 and Shaquille O’Neal is the eldest at 39. (If you want to guess the other three go ahead, it doesn’t matter anyways). No matter how [...]
