In the waning minutes of Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals, the Celtics were down 20 points on their home court. The Big 3 and Rajon Rondo found themselves sitting on the bench watching the reserves play mop-up duty. Many of the fans at the TD Garden, with the game so clearly out of [...]
LeBron James had a historic effort in Game 6 against the Celtics, going for 45 points, 15 rebounds and 5 assists (Wilt Chamberlain is the only other player in NBA playoff history to do something like that). And he did it for…the Cleveland Cavaliers! Yay! Wait…
LeBron James scored 45 points and grabbed 15 rebounds, and the Miami Heat cruised past the Boston Celtics in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals, 98-79. Rajon Rondo had 21 points and 10 assists but also seven turnovers, as the Celtics now find themselves with their backs against the wall facing a Game 7 [...]
Say what you want about LeBron James, but he was absolutely outstanding against the Celtics in Game 6, finishing with 45 points on 19-of-26 shooting. Then, on his way off the court, a Celtics fan honored LeBron’s magnificent performance by pouring beer on his head. What’s your reaction?
So, there you have it. According to WMTW-TV (Maine) anchor Meghan Torjussen (or more likely her very confused producer), the Celtics are now down 2-1-1 in the best-of-7 series against the Heat.
The Boston Celtics held on and evened the Eastern Conference Finals at two games apiece with an overtime win over the Miami Heat, 93-91, Sunday night. The Celtics nearly let the win slip away, blowing an 18-point first-half lead.
After Wednesday’s crushing loss in Game 2, many wondered how the Celtics would be able to respond at home in Game 3. I mean, they played just about as well as they possibly could (Rajon Rondo had a legendary, historically significant effort), yet the team fell in overtime. But, the C’s were home in Game [...]
Someone should probably tell the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder that they’re wasting their time. For that matter, the NBA should just step in and cancel the rest of this Celtics-Heat series. What should have a battle between two ideologies–young vs. old, flashy vs. scrappy, the individual vs. the team–has been all but [...]
The Boston Celtics threw everything they had at the Miami Heat in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals Wednesday night. They overcame two second-half Heat leads, played their Big 4 for 43-plus minutes each, and even got a career-best 44 points from Rajon Rondo, who played the entire game. They did all that, and [...]
The Miami Heat defeated the Boston Celtics, 93-79, at AmericanAirlines Arena Monday, taking a 1-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference Finals. Celtics Start Slow Less than 48 hours after the Celtics clinched their series win over the Philadelphia 76ers, they took the floor in Miami to face the Heat. The quick turnaround seemed to [...]
Need any motivation before the Eastern Conference Finals begin? I’m sure Doc Rivers played this video to his Celtics players before Game 1 of their series against the Heat. “You Three Kings came down here to win championships…LeBron, tell us about that” Yeah LeBron, tell us about that…
How did we get here? The Celtics started the season 15-17, and the Big Three era looked finished by the All-Star Break. Three months later, the Celtics have become just the fourth team in NBA history to make a Conference Finals after having a losing record at the All-Star Break. The Miami Heat are making [...]
After the Boston Celtics gutted out an 85-75 win to advance over the Philadelphia 76ers, I could only wrap my head around one thought: Phew! Despite clearly outclassing the Sixers in talent and experience, the Celtics made it interesting with close, defensive slugfests (offending most NBA purists) and a bevy of injuries. And so, in [...]
Finally, the playoff schedule is starting to take shape. All but two spots have been clinched, but it’s really just one that’s up for grabs. It’s still a battle for the West title, too, so expect that to get pretty heated. So far, only the Celtics and Pacers have locked themselves into a particular seed, [...]
Normally a loss to the lowly Toronto Raptors (missing Jose Calderon and Andrea Bargnani, no less) would have me in fits. But this is no normal season, and this wasn’t a normal week. The Boston Celtics took two of three in their one and only back-to-back-to-back of the season, including a win without any members [...]
