KG, Celtics Continue to Dominate at Home

The NBA Eastern Conference Finals started tonight between the Celtics and Pistons in Boston. The Celtics took control of this game from the beginning. Despite a few lead changes, Boston held Detroit in check throughout most of the game. The Celtics played better defense and controlled the boards to hold onto their Game 1 win, […]

Celtics Win a Sloppy Game 1

The Celtics managed to hold on to the win in game one tonight, despite some sloppy shooting for both teams, but also some great defense on both sides. It was a low scoring game, ending with the Celtics on top 76-72. If you told me before the game that Ray Allen would not have any […]

Celtics Get Back on Track, Lead Series 3-2

The Celtics came back to Boston and did exactly what they needed to do while they were at home: get a win. After the two losses in Atlanta, the Celtics desperately needed to come back home and get back on track. They did just that by controlling the Hawks and beating them 110-85. Game 6 […]

Hawks Continue to Surprise, Upset Celtics in Game 4

No one expected this series to go to a fifth game, and certainly no one expected it to go a sixth game. But after tonight’s loss, the series is going to return to Boston on Wednesday night for game five and then back to Atlanta for game six on Friday. The heat was on early […]

Celtics Continue to Pound Hawks in Game 2

The T.D. Banknorth Garden was not full of fair weather fans tonight, nor any sort of bandwagon fans that Hawks guard Mike Bibby thought there might be. No, these fans were true to their team and kept a roar going the whole game as the Celtics improved to 2-0 in the opening series against the […]

There was never a silent moment in the Garden Sunday night, as the Boston Celtics got ready for their first playoff game since 2005. However, this team was a much different one than three years ago.

Celtics Sweep Season Series Against Knicks

Once again the Celtics took another meaningless game and ran away with it. However, they would do it without the help of Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, and Kevin Garnett. Doc Rivers decided to give his all stars the night off again as the Celtics would go on to beat the Knicks 99-93 and sweep the […]

Celtics’ Bench Manages to Hold Onto Win in OT

Despite the Big Three’s presence in the lineup tonight, this game was once again another test for the Celtics’ bench players. After sitting out Saturday night’s game against Charlotte, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, and Paul Pierce petitioned to Celtics coach Doc Rivers to play tonight against Milwaukee. The Big Three were limited to just about […]

Point Guards Lead Way in Comeback Over Spurs

Without Ray Allen for the second-straight game, the Celtics seemed like they missed the veteran shooting guard in the first half against the Spurs. Down by as much as 22 in the first half, the Celtics played that much better in the second half en route to a 93-91 win. Rajon Rondo finished with 20 […]

Celts Beat Bucks for 52nd Win

The Celtics got their 52nd win pretty easily Saturday night in defeating the Bucks 99-77. Kevin Garnett led the way with 19 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals, and a block in 26 minutes. Ray Allen did not play with a knee injury, but Tony Allen subbed in for him and played 26 minutes. Luckily, […]

Cassell Makes It Official

Sam Cassell officially signed on for the championship run on Tuesday, filling the roster and clinching Executive of the Year for Danny Ainge. Doc Rivers ruled out Cassell for tonight’s showdown against Detroit, but he could practice with the team. Reaction: This signing is great. Rajon Rondo will enjoy having a back-up, so he’s not […]

Clippers Waive Sam Cassell

The Clippers waived Sam Cassell Thursday, after he missed four games with a sprained right wrist. Rumor has it that he wanted to join the Celtics to be the veteran backup point guard for starter Rajon Rondo. Reaction: It’s premature to celebrate, but this is exciting. Additions of P.J. Brown and Sam Cassell all in […]
