Boston Turns Up The Heat on Miami

So close, yet so far. Then so close again. Then a little farther away. That’s how the Celtics/Heat game went Wednesday, as the Celtics won a 112-106 overtime thriller. The game, which featured the returns of Rajon Rondo and Paul Pierce, started out close and remained that way until the 4th quarter. The First Three […]

Celtics Outpace Indiana in Boston

If it weren’t for Chicago blowing a 35 point 3rd quarter lead to Sacramento, we’d be talking more about this mini version. In a game of halves, Boston won an ugly one 103-94. With Kevin Garnett out with a thigh bruise, Indiana took advantage early and jumped out to an early lead. Indiana opened up […]

Boston Bullies Chicago, Wins 10th Straight

Boston picked up a convincing win over the Chicago Bulls Saturday, winning on the road 106-80 to pick up their 10th straight win. With the win, the Celtics extend their Eastern Conference lead over Orlando to two games. Things didn’t always look that way, though, as the Bulls got out to a quick 6-0 lead. […]

Celtics Beat Nets, Look Forward to Rest

Saturday night the Boston Celtics faced off against one of the worst teams in the NBA in the New Jersey Nets (0-7), but it was a much closer game then most people anticipated. After losing to the Phoenix Suns Friday night, the Celtics traveled to East Rutherford, New Jersey to take on the winless Nets […]

Celtics Make Raptors Extinct in Toronto

The Celtics extended their preseason record to an NBA second-best 5-1 (behind the 5-0 Magic) by taking it to the Toronto Raptors with a 101-82 victory Sunday afternoon. The familiar pattern once again manifested itself as the Celtics (one guess as to how this sentence will end…) committed their first turnover 14 seconds into the […]

Celtics 2009-2010 Season Preview: Centers & Forwards

Kevin Garnett’s injury spelled doom for this unit in the 2008-09 season. Much like the guards, the Celtics lacked enough big bodies when Garnett went down. Glen Davis was forced to start and Brian Scalabrine was moved into a more prominent role. Mikki Moore was signed to provide another big body, but he did not […]

Luck of the Irish is with the Celtics

It was a relatively close game for much of the afternoon as the Celtics defeated the New Jersey Nets 100-93. No time at all was wasted as Yi Jianlian of the Nets committed the fist foul of the game just two seconds in on the scramble for the opening tip-off. Rasheed Wallace came into the […]

Marquis Daniels to Join Celtics

Multiple sources are reporting that free agent forward, Marquis Daniels, has agreed to join the Celtics. The versatile 6’6″ wingman became a free-agent when the Pacers declined to pick up his $7 million option for the 2009-10 season. Daniels could join the C’s for the $1.9 million bi-annual exception, but it is believed that both […]

Reinvention in the Celtics Off-Season

The Boston Celtics are synonymous with a few things: triumph, legacy, and restoration. Some look back upon the 2009 NBA playoffs as an untimely demise of the reigning NBA champions, while some refer to as an inevitable outcome after a cursed playoff season riddled with injury. Either way, Kevin Garnett’s energy and skill was not […]

Celtics Player Review: Brian Scalabrine

SCALLLL!! The chants for the redhead never stop when Brian Scalabrine comes into a game. This season proved no different as Scalabrine continued to be a fan favorite despite his lackluster playing skills. However, Scal proved his worth in the playoffs this season and became a solid backup for the very depleted Celtics bench.

Was the Celtics Season a Letdown?

Last summer I made a very early and bold prediction that the Celtics would repeat as champions again and that Tony Allen was going to develop into their dominant sixth man. Well, now we know that both of these predictions turned up wrong, and if those were my two big hopes for the season, then […]

Celtics Give up Game 6 to Orlando

Game 6 was a terrible game, as both teams played poorly the whole way through. There were dumb fouls, turnovers, and missed shots all over the place. This hardly looked like two of the three best teams in the Eastern Conference fighting to play in the next round. However, Orlando came out the victorious, beating Boston 83-75 […]

Big Baby Hits Buzzer Beater in Game 4 Win

The Celtics were in control of Game 4 for much of the second half, but Orlando would not go away. With just a few seconds left in the game, the Magic found themselves up by one point. However, the ball found its way to Glen “Big Baby” Davis, not the one who would normally take […]

Eddie House and the Celtics Tie Up Series 1-1

If someone told me that Paul Pierce only played 16 minutes and only scored three points in a critical Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals I would have panicked immediately. The sad part about this statement is that most of it is true and Pierce was that ineffective due to foul trouble early in […]

Celtics Comeback isn’t Enough; Orlando Takes 1-0 Lead

Boston found themselves down by as much as 22 points early in the minutes of the third quarter, but made a valiant effort to get back into this very tough Game One match-up against the Orlando Magic in the Eastern Conference semi-finals. Thanks to great play by Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, and yes, Brian Scalabrine, […]
