If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 21

Just a few more weeks left. The Lakers, Celtics and Bulls have clinched their divisions, while the Heat, Magic, Spurs and Mavericks have all clinched playoff spots. There’s a good amount of room between all #8s and #9s, but nothing’s guaranteed there just yet. There are four teams in the West and five in the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 20

20 weeks are gone, and while the Spurs are riding high, the Celtics now have to resort to a tiebreaker against Chicago to hold the top spot in the East. And don’t listen to Chicago or Doc Rivers; getting the top seed means a lot. The bottom of the East also has a tie to […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 19

Just over a month remains in the season, and the Miami Heat got the highest ever rating on SportsCenter’s panic meter (9.99).

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 18

It won’t be long now until the playoffs begin, and there’s still a lot to be decided. Except for the Spurs, every playoff team is at most 2.5 games away from their nearest competition.

Celtics Overcome Grizzlies in Overtime

It took an extra five minutes to do it, but when it was all said and done, the Boston Celtics picked up another road win in Memphis, 116-110. Rudy Gay was honored for his U.S. gold medal win in the FIBA championships in Turkey, but Boston pulled through when it counted most. For much of […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 2

After one more week, things are looking quite different. Two unbeatens remain, and the top of the East is starting to sort of look how some expected it to. The Hornets and Lakers are still dueling for top honors; they first meet in New Orleans on December 29, which would make for a huge game […]

For Tony Allen Three is the Magic Number

Tony Allen is taking his talents to southwestern Tennessee. There was no gaudy, made-for-TV special (probably would have been broadcast on ESPN 8: The Ocho live from his garage) but having agreed to a three-year deal with the Memphis Grizzlies worth just over $3 million per year, Allen is leaving the only NBA home he […]

Celtics Fall to Grizzlies in Boston for First Time Since ’06

OJ Mayo’s near perfect FG pct. was a microcosm of the near perfection the Memphis Grizzlies (34-31) achieved against the Boston Celtics (40-23) on Wednesday night at the TD Garden. The second year shooting guard out of USC made seven of eight shots for a total of 17 points, and went 2/3 from beyond the […]

SoB NBA Power Rankings 1-29-10

After six straight weeks atop the SoB NBA Power Rankings, the Lakers have finally been dethroned by the Cavaliers. But, the defending champions didn’t fall far. They sit at the No. 2 spot just ahead of the Hawks. The streaking Nuggets, who are 9-1 in their last ten games, shot up four places from No. […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 13

The season’s cruising along, and it won’t be long before we’re talking playoffs. As expected, the Lakers have a comfortable West lead, and the Cavaliers are right back where they were last season.

Balanced Attack Helps Celtics Win 11th Straight Game

Six Celtics scored in double figures on Monday night. Six Grizzlies also scored in double figures. The Celtics shot over 50% from the field. So did the Grizzlies. Memphis even shot better than the Green from the line (90.9% – 76.2%). So, how did the Celtics come away with their 11th straight win, in a 110-105 […]

Celtics Interested in 2nd Pick?

The Celtics, despite holding just one late-second round selection in this month’s NBA Draft, have been involved in some strange rumors lately. There’s a report in Tuesday’s Memphis Commercial-Appeal that says the Celtics might be interested in acquiring the No. 2 pick in the NBA Draft from the Memphis Grizzlies. …The Griz still are entertaining […]

Big Baby, Celtics Blow By Grizzlies in Second Half

The Celtics were in a close game with the Grizzlies as the first half ended, which should never happen. But, by the game’s final buzzer, the C’s had blown away the Grizz thanks to a career-high 24 points on 8-11 shooting from Glen “Big Baby” Davis in a 105-87 win. Davis made up for a […]

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… […]
