Twice as Nice, Garnett-less Celtics Take 2-0 Series Lead

No Kevin Garnett? No problem for the Boston Celtics, who made the Heat look like high school players trying to keep up with the big boys on the court. The Celtics blew by the Heat to take a two-game lead in the first round of the NBA playoffs on Tuesday night with a blowout win […]

Celtics Finally Keep a Lead to Beat Raptors

It wasn’t always pretty, but the Celtics hung on in Toronto to win 115-104. You could tell it wouldn’t always be a fun night when Rondo and Ray Allen committed bad pass turnovers within 31 seconds of each other shortly into the game, with Rondo adding another later on. This led to the Celtics being […]

Ginobli’s 28 Pace Spurs Past Uninspired Celtics

The San Antonio Spurs (44-28) played like a team fighting for a playoff berth as they cruised past the Boston Celtics (47-26) 94-73 in front of a sellout crowd at the TD Garden on Sunday night. The Celtics, who have played well against Western Conference teams as of late, played a solid first quarter against […]

Detroit has undergone a roster transformation, sending away Chauncey Billups (and then Allen Iverson), and Rasheed Wallace […]

Sam Cassell + P.J. Brown = Michael Finley?

Allen’s Game-Winning Three Helps C’s Edge Wizards

Right before the trade deadline I wrote an article suggesting the Celtics should trade Ray Allen to the Warriors for Monta Ellis. Well Ray, I apologize. Mr. Allen made me and all of the other doubters out there look pretty silly as he nailed a game-winning three-pointer with 17 seconds remaining in Sunday night’s 86-83 victory […]

Celtics Sign Michael Finley, Get Even Older

The aging Celtics just got a bit older, after they agreed to sign the recently released Michael Finley. The 37-year-old had a an injury-plagued final year in San Antonio, and averaged just 3.7 points this season in only 25 games. “The opportunity to earn minutes in the rotation,” Finley’s agent Henry Thomas said. “And the […]
