Celtics Four-Point Play 7-16

In this edition of the Four-Point Play, I’ll take a look at James Posey’s decision to sign with the Hornets, Eddie House’s eventual departure, the Celtics’ interest in Tyronn Lue, and the release of the Celtics Championship DVD. 1. James Posey has really stung the Celtics, signing with the New Orleans Hornets to a four-year, […]

James Posey Signs with Hornets

The Celtics somehow were not able to re-sign pivotal swingman James Posey Wednesday, as he was able to reach an agreement with the New Orleans Hornets on a four-year, $25-million deal. Danny Ainge apparently was reluctant to offer more than three years and $5.8 million, so he took an extra year and slightly more money […]

Celtics Four-Point Play 7-9

In this edition of the Celtics Four-Point Play, I’ll discuss Corey Maggette’s free agency decision, James Posey’s talks with the Celtics, Gerald Green reappearing on an active roster, the the C’s apparent interest in a big man this summer. 1. Corey Magette did not wait long as free agency began at 12 a.m. EST Wednesday, […]

Celtics First Focus is Posey

It is July 1, and NBA Free Agency has begun. G/F James Posey declared himself a free agent, opting out of his one-year, $3.2 mlllion option for next year. Posey could probably demand $5-7 million in a three-year deal on the open market. I’m sure the Celtics would match that in a heart beat. He […]

Celtics Pass With Flying Colors in 2007-2008

KC did a piece earlier in the Celtics season in which he reviewed and issued grades for each individual player on the team. Now that the season is over I’ll take a look at all of the players on the team and give them a grade and a little bit of review on how I […]

Celtics Four-Point Play: Banner #17 Edition

I will devote the entire Four-Point Play to the NBA Finals against Lakers, which saw the Celtics win 4-2. I will analyze the play of MVP Paul Pierce, how the Celtics contained Kobe Bryant, why Phil Jackson kept starting Vladamir Radmanovic, and how the “numbers” played out in Game 6. 1. Paul Pierce was named […]

Celtics Complete Greatest NBA Finals Comeback Ever

The Celtics were down 24 points in the second quarter but then they put their foot on the gas pedal and made the greatest comeback in the NBA Finals as well as the playoffs. The Celtics won Game 4 97-91 and took a 3-1 series lead in the Finals. The Lakers blew this one after […]

Pierce, Celtics Take Tough Game 3 Loss

There are so many “ifs” one can talk about after their team loses a tough game, especially if that tough game is in the NBA finals. There is one “if” in particular though that I believe would truly have changed this game. My “if” is that if Paul Pierce had performed to the ability that […]

Celtics Fend Off Lakers in the 4th; Lead Series 2-0

The game seemed to be just about over when the Celtics were up by 22 points late in the second half, but the problem was that they were playing Kobe Bryant and the L.A. Lakers who have played quite a few late-game upsets recently. However, the Celtics were able to hold the Lakers and take […]

Injured Pierce Returns, Leads C’s Past Lakers

The game went back and forth the whole night and it was a battle throughout, but the Celtics were able to pull off a victory in this historic revival of the old Celtics and Lakers rivalry. The Celtics won this one, 98-88, and took an early 1-0 series lead. There were some scary injuries, a […]

CELTS WIN! BRING ON LA!

(For additional analysis >> see Celtics Four-Point Play: NBA Finals Edition) The Celtics got it done and after 10 long years Paul Pierce is in the NBA Finals. A huge fourth quarter for the Celts as they outscore the Pistons 29-13 and erased a 10 point second half deficit to take the win 89-81. Pierce […]

Celtics Survive Fourth Quarter Scare; Lead Series 3-2

The Celtics had a large 17-point lead towards the end of the game, but it was far from over. The Detroit Pistons are not a team that can easily be counted out when there are still several minutes of basketball to be played, and they proved that. The Pistons provided quite the scare late in […]

Celtics Return Home Tied 2-2

The Celtics won the tip and then…boom! It was 12-0 Detroit, and the lead would never change hands again. The Pistons handled the Celtics very well, beating them 94-75 in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Even though the Pistons won by 19, the Celtics were close at some points of the game. They […]

Celtics Finally Win on Road, Dominate Pistons

Kevin Garnett put the Celtics up by eight points midway through the second quarter with an emphatic dunk following a P.J. Brown block on the defensive end. It may not have represented a turning point in the game, but it certainly represented an exclamation point for the series: the Celtics are not dead and will […]

KG, Celtics Continue to Dominate at Home

The NBA Eastern Conference Finals started tonight between the Celtics and Pistons in Boston. The Celtics took control of this game from the beginning. Despite a few lead changes, Boston held Detroit in check throughout most of the game. The Celtics played better defense and controlled the boards to hold onto their Game 1 win, […]
