Rondo, Celtics Come Back Against Warriors

If Rajon Rondo is putting up over 20 points in a game, it’s going to be a good night in Boston. Rondo did just that and was the key player in the Celtics’ come-from-behind victory Wednesday night against Golden State as they won 116-111. The Celtics led this one early on, but the Warriors took charge […]

Celtics Prevail in Garnett’s Return to Minnesota

Kevin Garnett was Minnesota’s shining star. He was by far the greatest player in the history of the franchise. Any average fan would associate the Minnesota Timberwolves with KG and vice versa. That is…until last season. Garnett is now one of the franchise faces for the Celtics, and has worked with Ray Allen and Paul […]

Scalabrine Clutch as Garnett-Less Celtics Win

Nothing gets me more excited than a Brian Scalabrine three-pointer. I’ll admit it’s a rare sight, as Scal rarely sees actual game action. Before Tuesday night’s game against the Knicks, Kevin Garnett was suspended for an “altercation” with Bucks center Andrew Bogut. In KG’s place was Scal, and that set the scene for a dramatic […]

Garnett Suspended One Game

Celtics forward Kevin Garnett has been suspended for one game by the NBA for striking Bucks center Andrew Bogut in Saturday’s win in Milwaukee. Garnett and Bogut got into a scrum late in the fourth and both received technical fouls. Garnett and Bogut were fighting for a rebound when Bogut seemed to come down hard […]

Celtics Blow By Bucks 101-89

The Celtics are starting to look a lot like Muhammed Ali. Ali used to just dance around for 15 rounds until his opponent got too tired. Then, he’d either just outlast him or knock him out late. The Celtics seem to start slow on purpose, only to build up toward the end of the game. […]

Celtics Open Pursuit for Banner 18 With Win

Paul Pierce has come full circle. He is entering his 11th season, and for the most part has had an up-and-down career in Boston. He spent his first few years in the NBA forming the Dynamic Duo with Antoine Walker, then spent the next few years as the team’s lone bright star in what had […]

How Will the Celtics Replace James Posey?

This edition of the Celtics Four-Point Play will be extended over a few days up to the C’s home opener against the Cavaliers next Tuesday. Overall, I’ll pose four questions the Celtics face as they head into the brand new 2008-09 season. As you all may know, James Posey was very good as the Celtics’ […]

Celtics Player Previews: The Bench Forwards

The Celtics took a big loss this summer when they were unable to re-sign forward James Posey for a new contract before he took off for the New Orleans Hornets. In his place, Danny Ainge signed and drafted a couple players that may help fill his void. They help make up the forwards that will […]

Bill Walker Impresses in Celtics Loss

The Celtics opened up their preseason Wednesday night against the Philadelphia 76ers at UMass Amherst. After a strong first half, the Celts were outrun by the athletic Sixers in the second half en route to a 98-92 loss. With the starters playing limited minutes, the crowd at Mullins Arena had a chance to see the […]

Welcome to the NBA: The Thunder?

In this edition of the Four-Point Play, I’ll look into the new NBA team in Oklahoma City. I’ll also discuss how stupid Mario Chalmers is, Ben Gordon’s possible move to Russia, and the Celtics taking yet another tour with the Larry O’Brien Trophy. 1. It was widely reported Wednesday that the new NBA team in […]

Celtics Player Review: Leon Powe

For all of the 2006-07 season and for the beginning of this past season as well, Leon Powe seemed nothing more than a guy riding the bench that might come in when the game is well out of reach or someone was in foul trouble. Powe proved that he was capable of playing significant minutes […]

Celtics Player Review: Glen “Big Baby” Davis

One of the most lovable players on the Celtics, Glen “Big Baby” Davis has started his career off with a bang. No, he did not have outstanding numbers or Rookie of the Year recognition, but Glen Davis did make a “bang” everytime he fell into the crowd or onto photographers somewhere during a game. The […]

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 […]

Perk Out for Game 5

Celtics center Kendrick Perkins is out for Game 5 against the Lakers with shoulder and ankle injuries. Leon Powe will start in his place at center opposite Pau Gasol. If the Celtics win Game 5 in Los Angeles, they will be crowned NBA Champions and will raise Banner #17, an NBA record. BEAT LA!

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 […]
