Rondo Returns, Celtics Fall Two Games Below .500 as Kings’ Cousins Notches Triple-Double

The Boston Celtics finished their four-game road trip on Sunday night with a disappointing outing against the now 11-19 Sacramento Kings. The 118-96 loss was the third straight loss for the C’s by 18 or more points. Jeff Green and Jason Terry both had huge scoring games after being inconsistent during the 1-3 road trip. […]

Celtics Need to Finish Strong

At 82 games, the NBA regular season is a marathon, especially for an older team like the Boston Celtics. So the big question is, should the Celtics sprint to the finish line, or coast into the postseason allowing their veteran starters to rest? It’s an interesting question, and not an easy one to answer. The […]

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 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 […]

Bulls Win Epic Game 6 in 3OT, Force Game 7

Through five games, the first round series between the Bulls and Celtics has been extremely exciting, and Game 6 was no different after a triple-overtime game that spanned four hours. Unfortunately, the Bulls took Game 6 and forced Game 7 back in Boston by winning 128-127. Ray Allen was superb in the loss and if it was not […]

Celtics Fend Off Pesky Bulls for 3-2 Series Lead

In a tight game, Boston managed to come out on top 106-104 to take the 3-2 series lead in what has been an exciting first round of playoff basketball. It all came down to Brad Miller, who missed two free throws with 2.0 seconds left in overtime that would have tied the game. Paul Pierce really […]

Celtics Blow Out Bulls; Lead Series 2-1

The Celtics went into Chicago looking to win at least one game out of the next two to try and recover the home court advantage they lost after losing Game 1. They did just that and destroyed the Bulls 107-86 in impressive fashion to take the 2-1 series lead. The game was all Celtics and the Bulls […]

Powe Injured in Frustrating Loss to Bulls

Usually lucky time of the year, the Celtics have really fallen on hard times. First, they scored a season-low 77 points in a loss to the Bucks. Then, Tuesday night, on St. Patrick’s Day, the traditionally Irish team of the NBA was relegated to their home white jerseys…while the host Chicago Bulls were wearing strikingly similar […]

Eddie House, Celtics Notch 9th Straight Win

The Sacramento Kings came into the T.D. Banknorth Garden and looked as if they were going to put up a bit of a challenge for the streaking Celtics, but that changed in a hurry. The Kings had an early 10-point lead on the Celtics, but Boston easily erased the deficit and were down by only two […]
