Season-High Points for Rondo Lead Celtics Past Magic

All season long, Rajon Rondo has been more than happy to pass the ball to the Boston Celtics’ many strong shooters. Against the Orlando Magic on Sunday at home, he was a strong Celtics shooter.

Streak Over as Celtics Let One Slip in Orlando

Earlier in the week, Celtics Coach Doc Rivers had warned his team about the perils of a Christmas Day game.

This game was over in the first quarter. This series was over and given a brilliant summation with just under 9 minutes in the first half, with an all-out hustle play by Rajon Rondo that would make Larry Bird proud, to dive and take the ball (and the series) away from Jason Williams and the […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 10

With the end of football’s fantasy season being so hectic, I have been neglecting my basketball teams lately. As a result, I dropped to 10th in one of my leagues, thanks in large part to leaving Kevin Durant on my bench all week. Yes, I know I have to get my s**t together, so don’t […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 9

I hope the holidays were pleasant for everyone out there. During these hectic times, some people may get caught up in the yuletide spirit and forget to set their rosters each day. I myself was one of these people, and as a result, I lost both of my matchups last week. Oh well, live and […]

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 […]
