Celtics Come up Short Against Lowly Rockets

You would think the Rockets wouldn’t pose a challenge to the mighty Celtics, but there you go. Boston dropped the game, at home no less, to the Yao-less Rockets 108-102. Boston got a 9-4 lead early, which was their biggest of the night. Houston responded by getting the next seven. They danced back and forth […]

Celtics Power Past Raptors at the Garden

After an initial minute and a half, Toronto was no match for Boston, who defeated the Raptors 122-102 to take the season series, 5-1. After Toronto took a 4-2 lead (their only one of the night, which they held for all of 21 seconds), Boston rattled off two buckets to go up 9-4. Toronto closed […]

Garnett Injured as Celtics Turn Game Over to Pistons

Offense, defense, ball control. Play with them, you win. Play without them, you lose. Wednesday night in Detroit, the Celtics played without them, and they lost. The Celtics shot 44.2 percent through the first three quarters, allowed the Pistons to shoot 55.7 percent and turned the ball over 21 times, losing 104-92 in Detroit. Kevin […]

Allen’s 22 Helps Celtics Overcome Foul Disparity and Push Streak to 14

For almost three quarters, nothing was going the Boston Celtics’ way. The Philadelphia 76ers were playing a switching, active and stingy defense that confused and offset the Celtics offensive ball movement. Even when the Celtics got good looks at the basket, the ball always seemed to rim out at the last second, leading to under […]

Pierce’s Triple-Double Leads Celtics Pasts Pacers

Behind 18 points, 12 assists, and 10 rebounds from Paul Pierce, the Boston Celtics extended their winning streak to 13 games by beating the Indiana Pacers 99-88. It is the 7th longest winning streak in the illustrious history of the Celtics franchise, and is Pierce’s 7th triple-double (first since March of 2006) to go along […]

2nd Half Leads Celtics Past Hawks

In beating the Atlanta Hawks 102-90, the Celtics originally looked like they might have a tough time of things. Rajon Rondo is out indefinitely (a couple of weeks, probably) with a sprained ankle, and Shaq was still a cautious scratch. Boston only was 8/11 on free throws, to Atlanta’s 19/24. Though Boston began their 12-game […]

Celtics Skin Bobcats on Road

It wasn’t a pretty game, but mostly for the Bobcats, who lost to the Boston Celtics 93-62. That’s the lowest number of points allowed by the Celtics in a game all season. With Shaquille O’Neal out one more game with a sore calf, Semih Erden filled in, and played 40:42. Charlotte started out good early, […]

Robinson Starts and Stars: Celtics Blow Out Nets in New Jersey

Nate Robinson made his presence known from the very first shot of the game, a three-pointer from the top of the arch, which he drained. The message to the New Jersey Nets: don’t think this will be easy just because Rajon Rondo isn’t playing (sore hamstring). Given the starting opportunity, plus extended minutes due to […]

39 First Quarter Points Help Celtics End Skid in Atlanta

Shaquille O’Neal won the opening tip-off. That was the last time the Atlanta Hawks and the Boston Celtics were tied. After that, it was a constant up-hill battle for the Hawks, who fell more and more behind as the Celtics starters teed off in the first quarter and the Hawks could not respond. The Celtics […]

Poor Officiating Gift Wraps Game For Raptors, Celtics Lose 102-101

Aside from the 1st quarter, the Celtics looked rather flustered and unable to do much with the ball. Coupled with horrendous officiating (Tommy Heinsohn will be hoarse until the Hawks game Monday with all the yelling he was doing), including a blatantly blown no-call on a foul at the end which directly decided the game’s […]

Celtics Overcome Grizzlies in Overtime

It took an extra five minutes to do it, but when it was all said and done, the Boston Celtics picked up another road win in Memphis, 116-110. Rudy Gay was honored for his U.S. gold medal win in the FIBA championships in Turkey, but Boston pulled through when it counted most. For much of […]

Celtics Hold off Durant, Thunder

Coming into this game, everyone knew that Kevin Durant was going to score a lot, and he did, but with a strong play from the Celtics defense and bench, Boston was able to come away with the 92-83 victory. The Oklahoma City Thunder came back in the third quarter to erase a 22-point deficit down […]

Celtics 2010-2011 Preview: Guards

When it comes to this year’s guards on the Celtics, you might experience some sort of deja vu. With some old players reuniting and others coming back after signing off-season contracts, this certain group of guys will definitely entertain you. From highlight-reel passes to Slam Dunk worthy dunks to 3-point game-winners, this group of guards […]

Celtics Continue Preseason Roll Over Knicks

The Boston Celtics looked like a rejuvenated team in Connecticut Saturday, taking down the New York Knickerbockers 97-84. They found new life while retaining much of their skills and other aspects from the previous year, including breath-taking maneuvering and (unfortunately) poor three-point defense and crooked referees. Both teams traded punches and dunks, going back and […]

Is This Doc’s Best Celtics Team Yet?

With the 2010-11 NBA Season just about to get underway, Doc Rivers recently discussed how he felt thats this upcoming Celtics team could be one of the best teams he has had to coach in his career. Sure, there are plenty of personalities and a great deal of talent on the team, but will they […]
