Rondo, Celtics Come Back Against Warriors

If Rajon Rondo is putting up over 20 points in a game, it’s going to be a good night in Boston. Rondo did just that and was the key player in the Celtics’ come-from-behind victory Wednesday night against Golden State as they won 116-111. The Celtics led this one early on, but the Warriors took charge […]

Ray Allen Leads Way in Win Over Raptors

Playing at a time slot (12:30 p.m. on a Sunday) that was unlikely to draw many New England-area viewers, the Celtics enjoyed yet another victory, beating the Raptors in Toronto 118-103. Ray Allen led seven players in double figures with a very efficient 21 points. Allen was 8-12 from the field, including 5-7 from 3-point […]

Celtics Prevail in Garnett’s Return to Minnesota

Kevin Garnett was Minnesota’s shining star. He was by far the greatest player in the history of the franchise. Any average fan would associate the Minnesota Timberwolves with KG and vice versa. That is…until last season. Garnett is now one of the franchise faces for the Celtics, and has worked with Ray Allen and Paul […]

Rondo Outplays Iverson in Celtics Win

Initially, Detroit’s trade for Allen Iverson seemed to just set them up for a future spending spree in the 2009 or 2010 offseasons. They probably would make the playoffs with Iverson, but couldn’t expect anything big as they have in the past with Chauncey Billups. The Celtics made a trip to Detroit soon after the […]

Tony Allen Leads Way in Dominant Win over Pistons

Tony Allen has come a long way from his horrific injury during the 2006-07 season. Last year, he was the eighth or ninth man off the bench and played relatively well, but played as if he was favoring his injured knee. Who wouldn’t? He had major knee surgery. Less than two years removed from the […]

Celtics Blow By Bucks 101-89

The Celtics are starting to look a lot like Muhammed Ali. Ali used to just dance around for 15 rounds until his opponent got too tired. Then, he’d either just outlast him or knock him out late. The Celtics seem to start slow on purpose, only to build up toward the end of the game. […]

Garnett Improves in 96-80 Win Over Bulls

Playing in his 1,000th career game, Garnett was better than in his previous outing (game 999 if you’re counting). He finished with 18 points (7-11 shooting) and 10 boards to lead the Celtics to a 96-80 win over the Bulls on Halloween. Believe it or not, KG is the fastest player to 1,000 games at […]

Celtics Open Pursuit for Banner 18 With Win

Paul Pierce has come full circle. He is entering his 11th season, and for the most part has had an up-and-down career in Boston. He spent his first few years in the NBA forming the Dynamic Duo with Antoine Walker, then spent the next few years as the team’s lone bright star in what had […]

Celtics Player Previews: The Bench Forwards

The Celtics took a big loss this summer when they were unable to re-sign forward James Posey for a new contract before he took off for the New Orleans Hornets. In his place, Danny Ainge signed and drafted a couple players that may help fill his void. They help make up the forwards that will […]

Celtics Surviving Rough Economy Just Fine

In this edition of the Four-Point Play, I’ll discuss how the rough U.S. economy is affecting the Celtics, Tony Allen’s offseason saga, Ray Allen’s renewed focus, and I’ll take a look at how the Celtics fared against the 76ers on Wednesday night. 1. The 76ers beat the Boston Celtics 98-92 in the opening game of […]

Celtics Player Previews: The Bench Guards

For the next few weeks as the Celtics’ training camp moves on, I’ll take a look at what to expect in each set of positions. I’ll start with the bench players and then look at the potential starting five for the upcoming 08-09 season. First I’ll take a look at the guards that will be […]

Celtics Four-Point Play 7/24

In this edition of the Four-Point Play, I’ll take a look at James Posey being introduced in New Orleans, the Celtics Dancers’ final audition, the new Celtics license plate, and the impact of the Eddie House and Tony Allen signings. 1. James Posey met with the media Wednesday in his first official press conference as […]

House and Tony Allen to Stay With Celtics

According to Danny Ainge, the Celtics have reached two year agreements with both Tony Allen and Eddie House. Ainge would not be specific on the financial figures, but according to a source, both are being paid in the mid-$2 million range. For Eddie House, the money is roughly half the mid-level exception of $5.585 million. […]

Celtics Player Review: Tony Allen

Tony Allen went through a year of recovery this past season after a devastating knee injury derailed his 2006-2007 campaign. Allen did come back to play through the entire 2007-2008 season but his numbers were down from how he played before his injury. Before his injury, Allen was basically the team’s best player after Paul Pierce […]

Celtics Pass With Flying Colors in 2007-2008

KC did a piece earlier in the Celtics season in which he reviewed and issued grades for each individual player on the team. Now that the season is over I’ll take a look at all of the players on the team and give them a grade and a little bit of review on how I […]
