If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 17

After another week, the brackets are shifting a tad. A little seed jostling here and there, made possible by winning streaks followed by losing ones. It enabled Phoenix to overtake Oklahoma City, and allowed Milwaukee to sneak in completely under the radar. The Cavs, despite a disappointing end to their winning streak, recovered enough to […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 10

A full ten weeks into the season, plenty of surprises are still in place. The Bobcats and Bucks are still hanging onto playoff spots, as are the Thunder. Even the Clippers, who were up by nine at the half “at home” against the Lakers late, are just three games out of the brackets. And the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 8

Some interesting moves have occurred this past week. The Bulls just can’t seem to get their act together. The surging Knicks are just half a game out of a playoff spot. After winning their first ten home games, the Suns have lost their last two. The Lakers and Celtics both look to be getting back […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 7

What fun we’re having. The Celtics are starting to build a mini lead in the conference. Three sub-.500 teams are in the playoffs, giving the best teams a virtual bye. The Lakers are doing just as well as everyone thought, but they’re not running amok with the West. Yao-less Houston is still pushing for a […]

World Championship Makes Lakers NBA’s Most Valuable Team

On Wednesday, Forbes Magazine published its annual ranking of NBA teams by total value, and the Lakers, thanks in no small part to their NBA title, unseated the four-time most valuable team, the New York Knicks, clocking in a $607 million. The Celtics came in 8th at $433 million, and the Bucks were the most […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 6

Things are hot, with both conferences’ 8 seeds leading their closets contenders by half a game. The West is once again making its case for the elite conference, with not one team below .500 team in sight of a playoff spot. Speaking of which, the Nets actually won last week. Twice. And they’re only 15.5 […]

Celtics Win Eighth Straight, Beat Bucks

The Celtics improved to an impressive 17-4 Tuesday night and won their eighth straight game, beating the Bucks 98-89. For the eighth straight time, the Celtics have Kevin Garnett to thank. KG has come full circle since offseason knee surgery, and is looking a lot like the Garnett of old. He tied a game-high with […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 5

Another week, another set of shakeups. The Suns are dropping, and the Nets set a new NBA record Wednesday by dropping their 18th straight game to start the season. Washington and Charlotte are coming up nicely, while Milwaukee is slipping from early season highs. And our personal favorite, the Celtics, are starting to once again […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 4

We’re a month through the NBA season, and plenty of strong teams are vying for early winning streaks, pride, and momentum. The Suns are holding off the perennially dominant Lakers in the West (with the Nuggets and Mavericks not far behind), while the Hawks are beating out the Big Three teams (Celtics, Cavaliers, and Magic) […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 3

It’s been fun so far, with plenty of surprise teams making a run at the brackets in the early going. And the Nets have turned into the Detroit Lions of basketball, starting 0-12. Wouldn’t 0-82 be awesome to see? Despite the roughness of the two-game stretch, the Celtics are jumping back to where we expected, […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 2

It’s been a fun week. The Bulls lost to the Nuggets when a basket, under review, was deemed fired off too late. The Celtics and Suns continue to impress. And Milwaukee leading the division? Pabst Blue Ribbon is a more popular Wisconsin product. And we’ve got the Mavs holding onto the division over the Spurs, […]

Sloppy Celtics Fall to Lowly Bucks

Usually when an NBA team shoots 32.6% from the field and scores just 86 points, they tend to lose. In fact, I’m willing to bet that 90% of teams with those stats end up losing a game. Sunday in Milwaukee, however, was a different story, as the Bucks were less bad than the Celtics in […]

Pierce, Allen Lead Celtics Past Bucks in Overtime

Paul Pierce scored 28 points, Ray Allen added 27 and the pair accounted for all nine points in overtime, lifting the Boston Celtics to a scrappy 102-97 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night. Allen and Pierce were without the final member of the Big Three, Kevin Garnett, down the stretch after he fouled […]

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 Four-Point Play (4-9)

In this edition of the Four-Point Play, I will discuss the ridiculousness of Celtics playoff tickets, the recent play of the bench players, and the old Celtics at Fenway’s Opening Day. Also, in light of the recent NCAA Final Four, I’ll examine a couple players from Kansas, North Carolina, Memphis, and/or UCLA that I think […]
