Celtics Player Review: Brian Scalabrine

The token white guy riding the bench through most of the season, Brian Scalabrine will still remain a fan favorite in Boston despite the numbers that he puts up. Although he played a bit more than his white counterpart, Scot Pollard, Scal still did not deliver impressive numbers this season. I understand that if he […]

Celtics Pass With Flying Colors in 2007-2008

Celtics Player Review: Scot Pollard

I had high hopes for Scot Pollard coming into the 2007-2008 season.

Let me start by giving Danny Ainge and Doc Rivers each an A for their outstanding performances. Danny gets the mark for bringing in […]

C’s Dethrone Kings

The Celtics easily handled the washed-up Kings, combining stifiling defense with uncanny 3-point accuracy in an 89-69 drubbing (NBA.com Box Score). Ray Allen led 5 Celtics in double figures with 17 points, while Kevin Garnett added 14 points and 10 rebounds. James Posey contributed 11 points off the bench in the win. The old Sacramento […]
