Celtics Hold on Late to Win Game 1, Steal Home-Court

Here’s the facts from Sunday afternoon’s Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals: Jameer Nelson outplayed Rajon Rondo. Kevin Garnett, whose absence in last year’s Magic-Celtics was likely the difference in the series, played poorly on Sunday, shooting 4-14. Oh…and most important, the Celtics somehow held on after a late rally by the Magic to […]

Rashard Lewis Breaks the Celtics’ Hearts

It was heartbreaking. Rashard Lewis got past Kevin Garnett and put up a layup that gave the Orlando Magic a two-point lead with only 1.3 seconds remaining in regulation. On the subsequent inbound pass for the Celts, Rasheed Wallace was not able to hit a three pointer as time ran out. As a result, the Celtics lost […]
