Celtics Begin Their Post-Rondo Season By Trouncing Kings

Well, that couldn’t have gotten off to a much better start. Although many expect the Celtics to play well even without Rajon Rondo, tonight’s game was encouraging in many ways, as the Celtics polished off the Sacramento Kings, 99-81. After their All-Star point guard was ruled out for the rest of the season with a […]

The Realities of a DeMarcus Cousins to the Celtics Trade

The NBA trade deadline is still a month away, but general managers across the league are putting out their feelers to gauge the market value of various trade chips. Despite Rudy Gay  and Pau Gasol rumors swirling, it’s quite possible the NBA’s trade deadline could be fairly quiet. One marquee player that might be moving […]

Rondo Returns, Celtics Fall Two Games Below .500 as Kings’ Cousins Notches Triple-Double

The Boston Celtics finished their four-game road trip on Sunday night with a disappointing outing against the now 11-19 Sacramento Kings. The 118-96 loss was the third straight loss for the C’s by 18 or more points. Jeff Green and Jason Terry both had huge scoring games after being inconsistent during the 1-3 road trip. […]

Celtics West Coast Road Trip: Preview the Opponents

With their Christmas Day beat down of the Brooklyn Nets behind them, a Boston Celtics team in need of some serious momentum heads west to begin a three game West Coast swing. They will face the red-hot Los Angeles Clippers, an up-and-coming Golden State Warriors squad, and the perennial underdogs of California, the Sacramento Kings. Here’s a […]

Celtics Report Card: The Black Hole in Sacramento

After the Boston Celtics coughed up a win against the Los Angeles Lakers, I had forsaken all expectations for the rest of the road trip. The writing on the wall spelled DOOM. (Quick tangent: why does Hollywood try to turn video games into movies?) Then the Celtics did something I had thought impossible: they gave […]

SoB NBA Power Rankings: Rajon Rondo Trade Proposal Edition

It was a short and relatively uneventful stretch of games in the NBA this week, with a lot of teams trying to get their rhythm back coming off of the All-Star break. The good news is that the ‘hot stove’ talk is starting to pick up, which is always fantastic. So just to keep things […]

Celtics Ship Marquis Daniels to Sacramento

In a busy day for the Celtics, which saw them send Semih Erden and Luke Harangody to Cleveland and Nate Robinson and Kendrick Perkins to the Thunder, they have also sent Marquis Daniels to Sacramento for a future 2nd round draft pick. All in all, three extra roster spots are available for cheaper and/or healthier […]

Celtics Hold On To End West Coast Road Trip With A Win

With 37.9 seconds remaining in the game against the Sacramento Kings, Paul Pierce put the nail in the coffin and the Celtics went on to get their 37th win of the season.   Pierce dribbled to his sweet spot at the elbow of the free throw line, took a step back and banged a fade […]

Triple Play: Twelve Three Pointers Helps End Celtics’ Losing Streak

For the first half of the game, Paul Pierce was the Celtics’ primary offensive weapon, scoring 21 points to keep Boston ahead of the Sacramento Kings. Pierce didn’t play much in the second half (he finished with 25 points), but he didn’t have to. A 33-18 third quarter built an insurmountable Celtics lead, powering Boston […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 1

The NBA season is underway, and the weekly installments of hypothetical playoff scenarios have returned for your viewing pleasure. As expected, the Lakers and Heat are doing quite well for themselves, and if it weren’t for that opening loss to the Celtics, Miami would be #1, even over the Lakers. Boston is still thriving with […]

Rondo Steps Up to Rescue Celtics Against Kings

The Celtics led by as much as 24 points on Friday night and were well on their way to an easy blowout win over the inferior Kings. At the half, the C’s led 57-37. As a result, they entered the third quarter on auto-pilot (it seems they’ve done that all year…), and by the midpoint […]

Celtics De-throne Kings

The Boston Celtics were looking to start the second half of the season the way they started the first, but found themselves in yet another barn burner on Tuesday night in Sacramento. A timely three-point basket by Paul Pierce and clutch free throw shooting allowed the C’s to edge the Kings 95-92. In a game […]

Nocioni Could be Next Big Trade, Not

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past two years, since the Celtics have won the Championship in 2007-08 the team has been looking for a reliable replacement for James Posey. Last year Tony Allen and Bill Walker didn’t work out as expected. This season we have Marquis Daniels who has been doing a […]

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, […]

Celtics Player Review: Mikki Moore

I actually had never heard of Mikki Moore when the Celtics were interested in him midway through the season. He did not have much hype and it seemed like he was just going to add a little bit of height for the C’s bench. That was just about all Moore was for the Celtics, and he did not […]
