Spurs on the Brink: What now, Pop?

On the brink of winning their fifth NBA title in the Tim Duncan era, the San Antonio Spurs did not only cough up their best shot of taking down the defending champions in Miami, they may have already lost Game 7 too. Up five with just under 30 seconds left in regulation, the Spurs trotted […]

Stern’s Fining of Spurs Sets Dangerous Precedent for Celtics, NBA Coaches

David Stern has done it again. The NBA commissioner’s latest misguided show of power was his decision to fine the San Antonio Spurs $250,000 for doing a “disservice to the league” by resting four starters for last Thursday’s game at Miami. In that game, Gregg Popovich, one of the NBA’s most decorated coaches, managed to show […]

Rondo’s Big Night Can’t Save Celtics in Loss to Spurs

Rajon Rondo scored 23 points to go with 15 assists, but it wasn’t enough to push a listless Celtics defense past the Spurs, 112-100. Tim Duncan had 20 points and 15 rebounds, while Tony Parker added 26 points and 6 assists for a Spurs team that shot 58 percent from the field and 50 percent […]

Video: CSNNE Shows Stark Difference Between Heat, Celtics Big 3′s

Nothing sums up the differences between the Heat and the Celtics than this video posted on CSNNE.com. This Miami Heat team has always been about flash and arrogance, as opposed to being able to get your hands dirty when you needed to in order to win the big game. The latter is exactly what the […]

Stiemsma, Celtics Bench Key in Win Over Bucks

Greg Stiemsma played his best defense of the season in his Wisconsin homecoming as the Boston Celtics beat the Milwaukee Bucks 100-91 Thursday night. Stiemsma recorded five blocks and four steals off a Celtics’ bench that scored 29 points combined. Paul Pierce led the Celtics with 25 points and nine rebounds, passing Clyde Drexler for […]

Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 8

In the past week, nobody has picked up a player in the Sports of Boston Fantasy Basketball League. Either everyone is very satisfied with their team or nobody is paying attention. That kind of crime would be worse than Lamar Odom’s fantasy value (oh, petty cheap shot by me). Injuries Chauncey Billups (PG), Denver Nuggets […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 21 (3-16 – 3-22)

In Yahoo! leagues, the playoffs begin in Week 21. The past 20 weeks have been a grueling testament to how dedicated you truly are and how much you stack up to the best of the best in your league. I was fortunate enough to make it to the show in one league and in my […]

Garnett Returns to Help Celtics Over Spurs

Two of the league’s best defensive teams were at it Friday night as the Celtics faced the Spurs, but everyone knows the C’s aren’t nearly as stingy without their reigning Defensive Player of the Year, Kevin Garnett. For the first time since February 19 against the Utah Jazz, Garnett was back in the lineup and […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 18 (2-23 – 3-1)

There are only three weeks left in the fantasy regular season. If you are mathematically out of the playoffs then please don’t stop trying. I find that when I am in that situation, it is fun to play “spoiler.” If I face a team on the cusp of making it to the playoffs or facing […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 16 (2-9 – 2-15)

This week’s edition of ‘The Review” will be interesting since the NBA All-Star weekend got in the way of a week’s worth of action. As a result, we will have players with some pretty impressive numbers. The most games any team played this past week was two. So for the bulk of these numbers, it […]

Celtics Lose Another at Home

The Celtics took another tough loss at home against the San Antonio Spurs. It was a close game all the way and saw the lead go back and forth many times. However, the Celtics let this one get away when Ray Allen lost an inbound pass to Manu Ginobli in the final seconds of the […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 5 (11-24 – 11-30)

I am in two basketball leagues. I saw a funny occurrence with my stats last week. In the SoB league, I have two more roster spots than in my other league. However, in the league with less room for players, I scored more total points than I did in the SoB league. Maybe I should […]

Celts an Amazing 16-0 vs. the West

The Celtics improved to 16-0 against the Western Conference with a 98-90 win against the defending NBA Champion San Antonio Spurs. Even more amazing is that the Celtics played without the services of Kevin Garnett (6’11″) and Kendrick Perkins (6’10″). In their place, the Celtics got big contributions from Glen “Big Baby” Davis (6’9″) and […]
