Celtics Win in Garnett’s Return

With the clock ticking down on the Orlando Magic, Kevin Garnett reaches around Jameer Nelson and sends the ball up court to a wide open Ray Allen who is then fouled and sent to the free throw line to secure the 109-106 victory. As if there couldn’t have been a better way to end his […]

Triple Play: Twelve Three Pointers Helps End Celtics’ Losing Streak

For the first half of the game, Paul Pierce was the Celtics’ primary offensive weapon, scoring 21 points to keep Boston ahead of the Sacramento Kings. Pierce didn’t play much in the second half (he finished with 25 points), but he didn’t have to. A 33-18 third quarter built an insurmountable Celtics lead, powering Boston […]

Celtics Come up Short Against Lowly Rockets

You would think the Rockets wouldn’t pose a challenge to the mighty Celtics, but there you go. Boston dropped the game, at home no less, to the Yao-less Rockets 108-102. Boston got a 9-4 lead early, which was their biggest of the night. Houston responded by getting the next seven. They danced back and forth […]

Rose, Thibodeau-Led Bulls Trample Celtics

On Saturday night against the Bulls, the Celtics were finishing up a stretch of five games in seven days. They ripped through the first four games, going 4-0 with wins over Toronto twice, Minnesota, and San Antonio. Saturday’s game was also the second night of a back-to-back, and with this aging team with older legs, […]

Celtics Power Past Raptors at the Garden

After an initial minute and a half, Toronto was no match for Boston, who defeated the Raptors 122-102 to take the season series, 5-1. After Toronto took a 4-2 lead (their only one of the night, which they held for all of 21 seconds), Boston rattled off two buckets to go up 9-4. Toronto closed […]

Pierce and Allen Lead Fourth-Quarter Comeback as Celtics Win at Home

The Boston Celtics had not had a lead since just under four minutes remaining in the second quarter. The Minnesota Timberwolves led by eight points with just over seven minutes left in the game. But the Timberwolves had already lost seven games in which they’d led by at least 10 points this season, and the […]

Celtics Get Back in Right Direction With Victory in Toronto

Two straight losses didn’t have the Celtics in good spirits, but they got right back on track by beating the Toronto Raptors 93-79 on the road. Rajon Rondo returned, too. Happy days are here again! Though Rondo wasn’t the biggest contributor to the box score, eight assists and presence greatly helped. It was pretty close […]

Kevin Garnett Injury An Opportunity in Disguise

Celtics fans, breathe easy: Kevin Garnett did not re-injure his right knee Wednesday night in Detroit. X-rays on Wednesday showed no sign of fracture, and an MRI on Thursday revealed no ligament damage to the knee. The news isn’t all good however: Garnett strained his right calf muscle and will likely miss two weeks (or […]

Pierce Paces Celtics Past Indiana

Coming off a tough loss to the new-look Orlando Magic on Christmas Day to break their 14-game winning streak, the Celtics hit the court Tuesday against the Indiana Pacers. Playing without point guard Rajon Rondo, the Celtics were just fine and used a strong fourth quarter to roll past the Pacers 95-83. Paul Pierce led […]

Pierce’s Triple-Double Leads Celtics Pasts Pacers

Behind 18 points, 12 assists, and 10 rebounds from Paul Pierce, the Boston Celtics extended their winning streak to 13 games by beating the Indiana Pacers 99-88. It is the 7th longest winning streak in the illustrious history of the Celtics franchise, and is Pierce’s 7th triple-double (first since March of 2006) to go along […]

2nd Half Leads Celtics Past Hawks

In beating the Atlanta Hawks 102-90, the Celtics originally looked like they might have a tough time of things. Rajon Rondo is out indefinitely (a couple of weeks, probably) with a sprained ankle, and Shaq was still a cautious scratch. Boston only was 8/11 on free throws, to Atlanta’s 19/24. Though Boston began their 12-game […]

Celtics Skin Bobcats on Road

It wasn’t a pretty game, but mostly for the Bobcats, who lost to the Boston Celtics 93-62. That’s the lowest number of points allowed by the Celtics in a game all season. With Shaquille O’Neal out one more game with a sore calf, Semih Erden filled in, and played 40:42. Charlotte started out good early, […]

No ‘Melo? No Problem for the Celtics

Carmelo Anthony’s right knee was inflamed, and so was Denver’s hopes of winning George Karl his 1000th game. In the end, Denver made it close, but Boston swatted them back down, and took the win 105-89. All the way into the 3rd, Denver held their own, but Boston was able to charge forward and lead […]

Robinson Starts and Stars: Celtics Blow Out Nets in New Jersey

Nate Robinson made his presence known from the very first shot of the game, a three-pointer from the top of the arch, which he drained. The message to the New Jersey Nets: don’t think this will be easy just because Rajon Rondo isn’t playing (sore hamstring). Given the starting opportunity, plus extended minutes due to […]

Ray Allen’s 3 Seals 5th Straight for Boston

He had been cold all night long, but Paul Pierce found Ray Allen in the corner with 10.7 seconds left in the game to hit a three pointer and seal the win for Boston on Wednesday night. The Celtics took home their fifth straight victory with a 99-95 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on […]
