Robinson is Seeing Green

After losing out to the Memphis Grizzlies on signing free agent Tony Allen this past week, the Boston Celtics are close to finalizing a deal with back-up point guard Nate Robinson. Robinson, who is an unrestricted free agent this offseason, has expressed a strong desire to return to the Celtics once again. The three-time slam […]

O Captain, My Captain: Pierce Gets Celtics Closer to 18th Banner

Despite a late run and a very huge scare by the Los Angeles Lakers in the fourth quarter of Game 5 of the NBA Finals, the Boston Celtics were able to hold onto to for the 92-86 win and 3-2 lead, their first series lead in the NBA Finals. The Celtics also became the first […]

Nate Robinson: The Diminutive Dandy

“Stay engaged. At some point you’re going to win a game for us. I can’t tell you when. I can’t tell you when you’re going to play. I can’t tell you if you’re going to play, on what night at least, but at some point you’re going to win a game for us.” – Doc […]

Celtics Return to Finals with Rout of Magic

A Bruins-like meltdown was never going to happen. It was a cute story, but the Boston Celtics are not like other sports franchises. With 17 Championship Banners and a team of ring-bearing veterans, they are no strangers to pressure-cooker playoff contests. After giving Orlando a puncher’s chance with two straight losses, the Celtics finally put […]

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 […]

Celtics Remaining Schedule: Scuffling for Seeds to End the NBA Season

With just over two weeks left in the season, teams are engaging in their last minute pushes to improve their position. Except for the Celtics, that is, who were embarrassingly slaughtered from start to finish by the Spurs on Sunday. When an opponent can look like the UConn women against you, that’s never a good […]

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 Sunday night’s 86-83 victory […]

Pierce’s 27 Lead Boston Past Charlotte

The Boston Celtics and Charlotte Bobcats met up Wednesday night at the TD Garden. The Celtics were coming off of a tough road win against the Detroit Pistons. What they got was exactly what they needed: an easy win. Boston built a nine point lead in the first half and kept the pressure on in […]

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 […]

Will Nate Robinson Make an Impact?

For such a little guy, he can make a lot of noise. Last week when Nate Robinson was traded from the New York Knicks to the Boston Celtics, there was a lot of criticism on both parts of the trade. The first is that Celtics GM Danny Ainge traded away fan favorite Eddie House along […]

Celtics Outlast Knicks at TD Garden

Tuesday night saw a face-off between the Boston Celtics and the New York Knicks. It was Eddie House‘s return to Boston after being traded to the Knicks, and oddly enough it was also the debut game for Nate Robinson, the player the Celtics received in exchange for House. The Celtics built up a large lead […]

Denver Ends Boston’s Hopes of a Road Trip Sweep

The Celtics are a team of spurts, and Sunday was no different, as the Celtics fell to the Nuggets 114-105. Things just went from bad to worse for Boston, with the Nuggets getting second chance rebounds and stops on the defensive end, and not letting Boston do much of anything. They took a 17-8 lead […]

Nate Robinson Traded to Celtics

The Boston Herald has reported that the Celtics have made a trade for Knicks’ guard, prodigal son, and Slam Dunk Champion, Nate Robinson. The Celtics sent Eddie House, J.R. Giddens, and Bill Walker to New York for Robinson and Marcus Landry. Robinson has sat out for nearly half the year, but is certainly a strong […]

Celtics-Knicks Trade Rumors: Nate Robinson for Eddie House?

UPDATE (7:45 p.m. Wednesday): Eddie House went to Celtics practice on Wednesday, despite the fact there’s “strong possibility I’ll be traded tomorrow to New York.” He figured he’d practice in case the trade for Nate Robinson did not happen. “With that being said I have a bond with these guys and I’ll always have a […]

Diagnosing the Ailing Celtics

The NBA regular season is almost half-way over and the Boston Celtics sit at 27-13. The record has the Celtics atop of the Atlantic Division and leading the Toronto Raptors by 7.5 games. The Cleveland Cavaliers are the only Eastern Conference team with more wins than the C’s. Certainly, the Celtics are right where they want […]
