Celtics Beat 76ers Without KG and Ray Allen

The Celtics were without Kevin Garnett (out until the playoffs) and Ray Allen (serving a one-game suspension), and still managed to beat the slumping, yet playoff-bound Philadelphia 76ers Tuesday night 100-98. Paul Pierce put up an incredible effort without his star teammates, scoring a game-high 31 points on 12-16 shooting and seven three-pointers. Another Allen […]

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 […]

Powe Has Career Game in Celtics Win

Maybe the Celtics don’t need Kevin Garnett and Glen “Big Baby” Davis? OK, that’s a little ridiculous. But for now, it’s going to help the team for the playoffs that Leon Powe is getting all the big man minutes with KG, Baby, and Brian Scalabrine out of the lineup. And it’s starting to pay dividends… […]

Celtics Never Give up in Loss to Heat

The Celtics and Heat played a close game in the first half with many lead changes, but a strong third quarter for Miami led to a big lead to start the fourth.

Celtics Make Comeback, but Still Fall Short to Magic

The Celtics, playing without Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo (sprained ankle), were down by as much as 22 points against the Magic, but got the game within three points late in the fourth quarter thanks to a tremendous effort from Ray Allen. However, after a missed three-point attempt to tie the game, a bad call […]

Marbury Debuts in Celtics Win Over Pacers

Wearing a familiar No. 8 (like Antoine Walker before him), Stephon Marbury made his long-awaited debut for the Celtics Friday night. The Celts were without Gabe Pruitt after suspending him two games for his DUI arrest, and needed a backup point guard to step right in. In came Marbury, who actually played pretty well considering […]

Celtics Beat Up Denver Without Garnett

The Celtics continued to win without Kevin Garnett for the second straight game, making Monday night’s victim, the Denver Nuggets, look absolutely pathetic. The C’s went into Denver and easily took this one 114-76. Ray Allen was the leading scorer with 26 points while Paul Pierce pitched in 22. The two of them will need to continue […]

Garnett Injured in Loss to Jazz

The Celtics suffered two rare losses Thursday night against the Jazz. They held a 66-60 lead after the third quarter and by as much as 11.

Celtics Get Right Back on Track Against New York

The Celtics shrugged off their tough loss to the Lakers and got things going again with a victory over the Knicks in Madison Square Garden 110-100. The game went back and fourth for a while and was very close through the first three quarters, but in the fourth the Celtics started to finally distance themselves […]

Lakers Defeat Celtics in Overtime

If Pau Gasol could pick one block of his season as his most important, he would probably pick Thursday night’s against Ray Allen that sealed the win for the Lakers in Boston. L.A. defeated the Celtics for the second time this year 110-109 in overtime in quite the nail-biter. There were some bad calls here and […]

Slumping Celtics Lose Once Again

The Celtics took yet another loss Friday night to the Cleveland Cavaliers as they dropped their fourth straight and seventh out of their last nine.

Celtics Tie Franchise Record; Win 18th Straight

The Celtics were able to tie their franchise record of eighteen straight wins tonight after a very high-scoring victory over the New York Knicks.

Celtics Manhandle 76ers in 102-78 Win

This one was in Boston’s hands from the get-go and the Celtics never let up, cruising to their seventh straight victory by a final of 102-78. The 76ers really had no chance at all and it seemed that they just gave up by the time the second half had started. The Celtics held the 76ers […]
