Celtics Pound Orlando for 3-0 Series Lead, One Win Away From Finals

This game was over in the first quarter. This series was over and given a brilliant summation with just under 9 minutes in the first half, with an all-out hustle play by Rajon Rondo that would make Larry Bird proud, to dive and take the ball (and the series) away from Jason Williams and the […]

Video: Kevin Garnett Runs Into Stan Van Gundy

In a moment largely symbolic of the series, Kevin Garnett out-hustled Matt Barnes for the ball near the sideline during Saturday’s Game 3, and inadvertently ran into Magic coach Stan Van Gundy, knocking the big guy off his feet.

Stan Van Gundy Wants End to Christmas Games

Perhaps Stan Van Gundy was upset for getting the proverbial “coal” in his stocking after an 86-77 loss to the Celtics on Christmas Day. Perhaps he doesn’t fully understand how lucrative it is for his team to be featured on big prime-time games. Perhaps he was upset he didn’t have time to open his presents […]

Dwight Howard Calls Out Stan Van Gundy

Uh oh…trouble in paradise. It looks like Dwight Howard agrees with me here, and rightfully so I say. The play calling for the Orlando Magic in Game 5 was atrocious. You’ve got a foul-prone Perkins (not to say he hasn’t defended Howard well) and a Celtics team that can’t shoot the ball into the ocean […]
