Season-High Points for Rondo Lead Celtics Past Magic

Allen’s 22 Helps Celtics Overcome Foul Disparity and Push Streak to 14

For almost three quarters, nothing was going the Boston Celtics’ way. The Philadelphia 76ers were playing a switching, active and stingy defense that confused and offset the Celtics offensive ball movement. Even when the Celtics got good looks at the basket, the ball always seemed to rim out at the last second, leading to under […]

Robinson Starts and Stars: Celtics Blow Out Nets in New Jersey

Nate Robinson made his presence known from the very first shot of the game, a three-pointer from the top of the arch, which he drained.

Ray Allen’s 3 Seals 5th Straight for Boston

He had been cold all night long, but Paul Pierce found Ray Allen in the corner with 10.7 seconds left in the game to hit a three pointer and seal the win for Boston on Wednesday night. The Celtics took home their fifth straight victory with a 99-95 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on […]

Celtics Cruise Past Cavs 106-87

You can’t blame the Cleveland Cavaliers if their minds were elsewhere during Tuesday night’s 106-87 drubbing at the hands of an inspired Celtics team. With LeBron James and the Miami Heat returning to Cleveland for the first time since he tore their hearts out, a letdown seemed imminent. “On Thursday night, the Cavs will host […]
