Celtics Move to the Brink of Elimination with Game 3 Loss to Knicks

The Celtics scored under 80 points for the third straight game and now trail the Knicks 0-3 in their seven game playoff series after a 90-76 loss in Boston on Friday night. Jeff Green led the Celtics with 21 points and 9 rebounds, but seemed to turn the ball over every time the Knicks double […]

VIDEO: Jeff Green Posterizes Jason Kidd, Knicks

The Celtics lost to the Knicks in overtime on Saturday in Hartford, 98-95. Being that it was a preseason game, the likes of Jamar Smith, Micah Downs and Chris Copeland played some ugly basketball in the 4th quarter and overtime. It was the type of game that neither team of third and fourth stringers looked […]

Kidd Hits Clutch 3, Celtics Let Win Slip Away Against Mavericks

With less than three minutes to go, Kendrick Perkins hit a layup to give the Celtics a 97-91 lead over the Dallas Mavericks Friday night at the Garden. In the back-and-forth affair, it seemed the C’s were starting to take the upper hand and a few more baskets would end it. But, they never came. […]

What You Didn’t Know About Joe Nelson: Miley Cyrus, Star Trek, and a Ring

When Josh Beckett was placed on the disabled list with a bad back, the Red Sox called up 35-year-old journeyman reliever Joe Nelson. Drafted in 1996, Nelson didn’t make it to the big leagues with Atlanta until 2001. He didn’t really catch on in the majors until 2006 with the Royals, before stops with the […]

Rondo’s Stellar Play May Force Cavs to Pick Their Poison in Game 5

Celtic’s point guard Rajon Rondo recorded 29 points, 18 rebounds, and 13 assists in the Game 4 victory over Cleveland on Sunday, proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is the second-best player in this series behind LeBron James. However, it was King James who took a backseat on Sunday, something he hasn’t […]

SoB NBA Power Rankings 4-10-10

The final ballots are in with less than a week remaining in the NBA regular season. It’s been a long strange trip to say the least. When we at Sports of Boston started our bi-weekly NBA Power Rankings back in December, the Celtics and Lakers were far and away the two most dominant teams in […]

Celtics Remaining Schedule: Scuffling for Seeds to End the NBA Season

With just over two weeks left in the season, teams are engaging in their last minute pushes to improve their position. Except for the Celtics, that is, who were embarrassingly slaughtered from start to finish by the Spurs on Sunday. When an opponent can look like the UConn women against you, that’s never a good […]

SoB NBA Power Rankings 3-27-10

Dirk, Ice-Cold Mavs Get Hot, Beat Celtics

Coming into Monday night’s game at the TD Garden, the Mavericks had lost three of four games, including a 22-point loss to the Raptors on Sunday. This should have been easy for the Celtics, right? Not so fast, as the C’s had lost two straight at home heading into Monday. Something had to give. First, […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 6

Oh no! I am facing a notorious streamer this week in one of my leagues. Since he started this strategy, he is has won two league championships in a row. Personally, I don’t like facing streamers (obviously), but hey, as long as the league is set up to let you get away with it, then […]

Glen Davis in the NFL?

Football and Basketball are not that different. Both sports require you to be freakishly athletic, strong, and jumping ability is a must. You have to be good with your hands whether you are an offensive lineman trying to fend off a defensive end, a wide receiver trying to grab a pass, or a shooting guard […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 1

Week 1 is in the books. There is no better feeling (in the fantasy realm anyways) than the first week of a fantasy sport. I myself was at a friend’s birthday celebration at a sports bar on Friday night. Instead of paying attention to the festivities around me, I had my eyes glued on one […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 2 (11-3 – 11-9)

Two weeks in and where do you stand? Don’t sweat it, this is a marathon, not a sprint. What I haven’t seen much of this season is a breakout performer. It just seems the usual suspects are the ones who are the best, which is what is supposed to happen. We will see though, we […]
