LeBron Soars Over KG, Celtics

SLAM! …and then LeBron James sent a strong message: the Cavs are going to provide the toughest test of the season for the Celtics. With one dramatic dunk around Rajon Rondo, James Posey, and then emphatically over NBA Defensive Player of the Year Kevin Garnett, LeBron showed that he’s capable of taking over a series. […]

Celtics Continue to Struggle on the Road

Boston was quickly up 4-0 to start the game, but after that it was all Cleveland. The Celtics lost game three in the second round of the playoffs tonight. Cleveland embarrassed the Celtics by beating them 108-84. The struggles on the road in the playoffs continued tonight for the Celtics, who were the best road […]

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 […]

Hawks Continue to Surprise, Upset Celtics in Game 4

No one expected this series to go to a fifth game, and certainly no one expected it to go a sixth game. But after tonight’s loss, the series is going to return to Boston on Wednesday night for game five and then back to Atlanta for game six on Friday. The heat was on early […]

That’s a Wrap, Celtics Finish Season on a High Note

The Boston Celtics finished one of the best seasons they’ve had as team since the late 1980s tonight with a 105-94 win over the New Jersey Nets. With the win the Celtics finished the regular season off with a 66-16 record overall which will give this 07-08 team the third best record in the team’s […]

Celtics’ Bench Manages to Hold Onto Win in OT

Despite the Big Three’s presence in the lineup tonight, this game was once again another test for the Celtics’ bench players. After sitting out Saturday night’s game against Charlotte, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, and Paul Pierce petitioned to Celtics coach Doc Rivers to play tonight against Milwaukee. The Big Three were limited to just about […]

Celtics Role Players KO Bobcats

A team without Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, and Paul Pierce played Saturday night against the Bobcats. The Celtics also basically played that way last year, finishing with 24 wins (Pierce missed a huge chunk of the season with an ankle injury). This year, it was a different result. Playing in their first game without the […]

With Their Backs Against the Wall, Celtics Rebound

The Celtics were pretty pitiful in Friday night’s loss to the Suns, amassing only 77 points and getting out-rebounded by more than 20 boards. They were that much worse in the first quarter against the Blazers, playing perhaps their worst basketball this season. Everything turned around after that however, and the Celtics won a tough […]

New All-Star Allen Leads Banged Up C’s Over Knicks

Three fabulous things happened last night. First, the Celtics won 111-103 behind a team-high 24 points from Paul Pierce. Second, with the Celtics win im 2-for-2 on Ray Allen Guarantees (I guaranteed that the Celtics would beat the Knicks despite being short-handed). Third, Ray Allen was announced as an all-star reserve for the Eastern Conference, […]

Celts Improve to 12-0 Against West

The C’s managed to defeat the Dallas Mavericks 96-90 without the services of Kevin Garnett, who missed the game with a strained abdominal muscle. Ray Allen and Paul Pierce stepped up big to pick up most of the slack, scoring 26 apiece on the same day that Pierce was named to the All-Star team as […]

Celtics Making the Grade at Season’s Midpoint

The Celtics have played 41 games. They have remarkably won 34 of them. Thus, it should come as no surprise that the Celtics midseason report card will feature many outstanding grades. Let me start by giving Danny Ainge and Doc Rivers each an A for their outstanding performances. Danny gets the mark for bringing in […]

C’s Dethrone Kings

The Celtics easily handled the washed-up Kings, combining stifiling defense with uncanny 3-point accuracy in an 89-69 drubbing (NBA.com Box Score). Ray Allen led 5 Celtics in double figures with 17 points, while Kevin Garnett added 14 points and 10 rebounds. James Posey contributed 11 points off the bench in the win. The old Sacramento […]

Back to Business for the Celtics

The Celtics avenged a 104-102 loss Sunday in Orlando by beating the Warriors at home 105-82 (NBA.com Box Score) for their 9th win in 10 games to start the season. The C’s had 6 players in double figures, including 15 points from sixth man Eddie House. The Celts played the Warriors as if they hadn’t lost yet this […]

A Trap Game in the NBA?

If there is a such thing as a trap game in the NBA, tonight’s game is definitely that. It pits the 7-0 Boston Celtics against the 1-7 Miami Heat. On paper, it’s on obvious blowout. The Heat are terrible this year. They have little bench depth, Shaq is getting older, and Pat Riley is losing […]

Green turn Gold in Slaughter of Nuggets – Game 3 Thoughts

The Green sure looked golden Wednesday night when the C’s played the Denver Nuggets. The Nuggets are stacked with 2 former No. 1 draft choices (Allen Iverson, Kenyon Martin) and 2 former No. 2/3 draft choices (Marcus Camby, Carmelo Anthony). Yet, the Celtics totally dominated the Nuggets from the get-go…and all that talent left the […]
