Celtics Bludgeoned by Pistons… Again

In all fairness, the Detroit Pistons (11-22) have been doing much better as of late.

The Celtics survived a rough game from Ray Allen, an ejection of Kendrick Perkins, and relatively little production from the bench to win […]

Celtics Survive Fourth Quarter Scare; Lead Series 3-2

The Celtics had a large 17-point lead towards the end of the game, but it was far from over. The Detroit Pistons are not a team that can easily be counted out when there are still several minutes of basketball to be played, and they proved that. The Pistons provided quite the scare late in […]

Celtics Lose First Home Playoff Game

The Celtics were at the wrong end of a close game in the place where they really did not want to lose: home. The Detroit Pistons handled the Celtics well and were able to hit all kinds of shots from all angles of the court to outscore the Celtics 103-97 in Game 2 to tie […]
