NBA Rescinds Perk’s Technical; Celtics Still Cling to 3-2 Series Lead

A week ago the Boston Celtics had a 3-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference Finals to a team most probably thought they could not compete with. They had a 3-0 series lead with Game 4 on their own home turf. How could one not possibly expect the Celtics to be able to close the […]

Cavaliers Crush Celtics in Boston to Take 2-1 Series Lead

This one was over before the chalk had settled from Lebron’s pre-game ritual. This one was a game where the Celtics were out-hustled, out-muscled, out-willed and out-classed on their home parquet that lead to the team’s worst home playoff loss in franchise history. This one was a result that will almost certainly lead to many […]

Garnett, Perkins “Injured;” Necessary Precaution or Act of Gamesmanship?

It appears LeBron James isn’t the only player benefiting from the three day break between Games 2 and 3.

KG and Perkins sustained their injuries during Monday night’s Game 2 , […]

Celtics Finally Keep a Lead to Beat Raptors

It wasn’t always pretty, but the Celtics hung on in Toronto to win 115-104.

This led to the Celtics being […]

Celtics Need to Finish Strong

At 82 games, the NBA regular season is a marathon, especially for an older team like the Boston Celtics.
