Celtics’ Free Agency Preview: Guards

Sports of Boston continues its three-part preview of the 2011-12 Celtics roster and possible free-agent moves. Today, we’ll look at the guards. The depth chart in the back-court for 2011-2012 Boston Celtics currently looks something like this: PG: Rajon Rondo, Avery Bradley SG: Ray Allen, E’Twaun Moore If the Celtics can resign Delonte West that […]

Celtics Beat Pistons 86-82 Behind Pierce, Allen

Paul Pierce’s 22 points set the tone for the Celtics winning their fourth game in a row, beating the Detroit Pistons 86-82 as a disgruntled Richard Hamilton rode the bench for the visitors. Kevin Garnett totaled 11 points and six rebounds in only his second game back from a leg injury that forced him out […]

Garnett Injured as Celtics Turn Game Over to Pistons

Offense, defense, ball control. Play with them, you win. Play without them, you lose. Wednesday night in Detroit, the Celtics played without them, and they lost. The Celtics shot 44.2 percent through the first three quarters, allowed the Pistons to shoot 55.7 percent and turned the ball over 21 times, losing 104-92 in Detroit. Kevin […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Championship Week

One valuable lesson was learned for the Championship Week matchup in the Sports of Boston Friends and Family League. I was facing Shotgun from The BlueWorkhorse for all the marbles in the first annual league championship. Our teams were strong (obviously), but I was rotating three roster spots due to injuries by streaming players through free […]

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 […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 14 (1-26 – 2-1)

I hope saying the following will not diminish my fantasy status but, is there WNBA fantasy? If there is, I have never heard of or seen it. If it exists, then I wouldn’t play it. I’d rather participate in fantasy NASCAR. Do enough people really have enough in depth knowledge of the WNBA in order […]

McGrady-less Rockets Beat Celtics in Boston

When things are going bad (and they are now that the Celts have lost six of their last eight games), someone named Von Wafer hits a huge shot to beat you. The Celtics suffered such a fate Wednesday night as the Rockets guard (filling in for an injured Tracy McGrady) hit a go-ahead three-pointer with […]

Fantasy Basketball Review: Week 3 (11-10 – 11-16)

Just a quick blurb on my boy Dwight Howard. He only scored 4 points on Sunday. The ironic thing is that all of his points came off of free throws. He is averaging 21.3 points per game this season and missed all of his field goal attempts against the Bobcats. I just hope this isn’t […]

Celtics Outlast Rockets 103-99

On a historic election evening, the Celtics did their best to earn a third victory against a strong Houston squad. The Rockets came in undefeated at 3-0 on the season, led by their own big three of sorts in Yao Ming, Tracy McGrady, and Ron Artest. The Celtics improved to 3-1 and handed the Rockets […]

Gasol, Spanish Basketball Team Pose for Offensive Photo

In this edition of the Four-Point Play, I’ll take a look at that offensive Spanish photo that has Chinese fans at the Olympics in an uproar. Also, who has the No. 1 selling jersey in China? Would Kobe Bryant actually consider playing in Italy? And…How’s team USA doing in Beijing? 1. Pau Gasol and the […]

Rockets Grounded at 22 Thanks to KG’s 22

The Rockets’ historical 22-game winning streak is now history, thanks to the Celtics. The Celtics and Rockets played to a hotly contested first half, which saw the score tied 40-40. The C’s pulled away in the second half however, racing ahead to a lead as high as 27 points en route to a dominating 94-74 victory. Kevin […]

C’s Fly High Over Rockets

The Celtics used a big first quarter to help power a 97-93 win (NBA.com Box Score). The Rockets outscored the C’s in every quarter except the first, but Boston hung on behind Kevin Garnett’s 26 points, 9 rebounds, and 3 blocked shots. With the win, Boston improved to 27-3, which is tied for the best 30-game […]
