Beat the Heat: Celtics’ 35-Point Third Quarter Powers Them to Top Spot in East

Coaches always stress that to win games in the NBA, you have to “play all four quarters.” But sometimes, all you need to do is play one quarter really well. The Celtics shot 83.3 percent in the third quarter of Sunday’s home game against the Miami Heat, scoring 35 points and building up a lead […]

Celtics Win a Sloppy Game 1

The Celtics managed to hold on to the win in game one tonight, despite some sloppy shooting for both teams, but also some great defense on both sides. It was a low scoring game, ending with the Celtics on top 76-72. If you told me before the game that Ray Allen would not have any […]
