39 First Quarter Points Help Celtics End Skid in Atlanta

Shaquille O’Neal won the opening tip-off. That was the last time the Atlanta Hawks and the Boston Celtics were tied. After that, it was a constant up-hill battle for the Hawks, who fell more and more behind as the Celtics starters teed off in the first quarter and the Hawks could not respond. The Celtics […]

Celtics Hold off Durant, Thunder

Coming into this game, everyone knew that Kevin Durant was going to score a lot, and he did, but with a strong play from the Celtics defense and bench, Boston was able to come away with the 92-83 victory. The Oklahoma City Thunder came back in the third quarter to erase a 22-point deficit down […]

Celtics Fend Off Bulls in OT

Kevin Garnett poked the ball away from behind Joakim Noah as he dribbled up the court with just a few seconds left in overtime to seal the win for Boston in a 110-105 final against the Chicago Bulls. Another overtime game (the second in as many games for the Celtics) for these two teams who […]

Pierce Tops 20,000 Points as Celtics Top Bucks in Overtime

Paul Pierce has made a career out of driving to the hoop with sufficient herky-jerk motion to draw the foul and get himself to the free-throw line. He has shot more free throws and made more free throws than anyone else in Celtics history. So, it was only fitting that it was at the free-throw […]

Celtics Have Interest in Eddie House?

Another day, another Celtics rumor. This time, Julian Benbow of Boston.com reports that the Celtics have discussed the possibility of bringing Eddie House back into the mix. House, 32, was with Boston from 2007 up until the All Star break last season. Throughout that stint with the Celtics, House played in 209 regular season games. […]

Celtics, Marquis Daniels Agree on Deal

Following his worst season in the NBA, Marquis Daniels signed a one-year deal to stay in Boston for the 2010-2011 season. Daniels, 29, scored an abysmal 5.6 points-per-game in just 51 games last season. After the Celtics signed the former Dallas Maverick and Indiana Pacer last September, many thought he was going to be a […]

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 […]

Magic Romp Celtics, Send East Finals Back to Boston

The Orlando Magic took another step toward making NBA history on Wednesday night by blowing away the Boston Celtics 113-92 in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The Magic are trying to become the first team to come back from a 3-0 series deficit, and with the Series now standing at 3-2, they may […]

Video: Marquis Daniels’ Stepfather Tasered, Arrested

In case you haven’t heard, the stepfather of Marquis Daniels was arrested and Tasered during Game 2 of the Celtics-Magic series on Wednesday night. Yes, Tasered…because he was resisting arrest. The altercation began when the man, Willie L. Buie, was taunted and hollered at by Magic fans. The argument spilled into the stands, where Buie […]

NBA Playoffs 2010: Celtics-Cavaliers Series Preview

The Boston Celtics made short work of the Miami Heat in their opening-round series, finishing off Dwayne Wade and Co. in just five games. Unfortunately, the road to the NBA Finals doesn’t get any easier for the C’s, as they prepare for a second-round series with LeBron James and the No. 1-seeded Cleveland Cavaliers. The […]

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 […]

Allen’s Game-Winning Three Helps C’s Edge Wizards

Right before the trade deadline I wrote an article suggesting the Celtics should trade Ray Allen to the Warriors for Monta Ellis. Well Ray, I apologize. Mr. Allen made me and all of the other doubters out there look pretty silly as he nailed a game-winning three-pointer with 17 seconds remaining in┬áSunday night’s 86-83 victory […]

New Jersey Nets a Win Over Boston

That was just embarrassing. It all of a sudden looks like the Celtics will definitely miss the playoffs, or at least be booted out in the first round, after they completely failed against the lowly Nets, 104-96. Defense was terrible, offense was terrible, and even with some questionable calls by the referees, a little more […]

Pierce-Less Celtics No Match for LeBron…or Anyone

So can we put to rest the debate of which member of the Big Three is most important? After an embarrassing 108-88 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on national television, the Celtics look to be no match for the Cavs with or without Paul Pierce, but one thing’s for certain: the Celtics cannot beat the […]

VIDEO: Marquis Daniels One-Ups Some of World History’s Greatest Figures

Julius Caesar. Nefertiti. Hippocrates. Napoleon Bonaparte. George Washington. Martin Luther King. And…Marquis Daniels. These great and accomplished human beings have many similarities. Leadership, guile, artistry, determination and a high intelligent quotient all come to mind. But save for one, these famous historical figures were never able to average 9.3 PPG and 3.1 rebounds over the […]
