If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 2

Two weeks into the season is a great time for surprise teams to make an early impression, and that’s been happening so far. Miami isn’t the one running away with things. Houston and Brooklyn are having trouble establishing themselves. Phoenix, Portland, Charlotte and Philadelphia are all among the teams doing fairly well early. Everyone has […]

VIDEO: Jeff Green’s Monster Dunks Against the Phoenix Suns

On Wednesday the Celtics were able to extend their win streak to four games with a win over the Phoenix Suns. A big factor in the win was the play of Jeff Green, who lead the team in scoring with 14 points. Exactly one year removed from surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm, Green has […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 2

Just two weeks into the season, the Lakers have already made a coaching change, even spurning Phil Jackson, who expected to return to the team. The Knicks are the only unbeaten team left, while the Celtics are taking a while to get their depth going. Memphis, San Antonio and Miami are going strong, and even […]

Celtics Report Card: One Month in, C’s Need Work

Welcome to our weekly Celtics report card! In this space, I’ll evaluate the team’s performance over the past week, assigning grades from “F” to “A+” (though be forewarned, there will be no liberal arts college grade inflation). To come up with a letter grade, I will use a combination of statistics (looking at the box […]

Celtics Survive Comeback Attempt to Defeat Suns

For the majority of the game, it appeared that Phoenix was laying down. Then, that completely reversed, but Boston managed to hold on and managed to win 115-103. A 10-0 run by Boston, to go up 16-8, forced a Phoenix timeout 3:51 in. Phoenix cut the lead to 18-15 before Boston resumed their run. By […]

Video: Kevin Garnett Ejected After Punching Channing Frye In The Groin

The Celtics must have been tired after playing the Suns in Phoenix the night after beating the Blazers 1,100 miles away in Portland, Oregon. But, is that a good-enough excuse for the ugly 88-71 loss Friday night. By the fourth quarter, it was definitely a little chippy. After Channing Frye attempted a three pointer, Kevin […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 6

Ah, the East. Where you can be .381 and still make the playoffs. Where #5 and #6 can both be better than #4. And then there’s the West. Where a team that would challenge in the East is middle of the pack. Meanwhile, Dallas has built up 10 straight wins to challenge the Spurs, who […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 3

Last year, the Nets threatened to break the NBA’s 82-game season-worst 9-73 (.110) record of the 1972-1973 Philadelphia 76ers, and this year, the Clippers are on pace for 7-75. So who’s Blake Griffin again? Stay tuned each week for updates on that, but for now, all teams have finally lost a game, and the Spurs […]

Sporting World And America Rebuff Arizona

By now, we’ve all heard about Arizona Senate Bill 1070, which aims to toughen up the state’s response to illegal immigration when it takes effect in August. At least that’s what right wingers are saying the point is. Plenty more people are saying that the law will actually promote racial profiling, since police are now […]

SoB NBA Power Rankings 4-10-10

The final ballots are in with less than a week remaining in the NBA regular season. It’s been a long strange trip to say the least. When we at Sports of Boston started our bi-weekly NBA Power Rankings back in December, the Celtics and Lakers were far and away the two most dominant teams in […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 23

Just one week remains in the season, and only one spot remains to be filled. It’ll be either Toronto or Chicago, and it’s pretty hard to go against Chicago after all those injuries to Toronto. Four divisions and one conference are locked up. Dallas has a magic number of two for their division, Utah and […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 22

We start off with some sad news: thanks to a victory Monday, the New Jersey Nets now have 10 wins, and will not set the record for worst ever NBA record. A Native American is now shedding a single tear in lament. Boston has also slipped a spot after another rough spot; at least Miami […]

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 […]

SoB NBA Power Rankings 3-27-10

With just a little over two weeks remaining in the regular season, the race for the NBA playoffs is heating up. Elite teams like the Lakers and Cavaliers look to continue playing winning basketball in order to solidify the top seed in their respective conferences, while the Raptors and Trailblazers will try to fend off […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 21

Three weeks remain in the schedule, and two more teams have punched their post-season tickets. There’s still a lot of close seeding to be hammered out. Remember last year when the Rockets could have ended anywhere from second to fifth on the season’s last day? Multiple teams could very well pull off something similar this […]
