If you had told me two months ago that the Boston Celtics would host the first two games of a second-round playoff series, I would have laughed. Or maybe I would have scoffed and said I’m just looking forward to Red Sox season. Either way, I would have been very, very wrong. Before the Celtics […]
The Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers are no strangers to each other.

Historical […]

Atlanta Hawk Joe Johnson drained a jumper 19 seconds into Sunday’s Game 4 against the Boston Celtics at the TD Garden. The Hawks never led after that.

It’s official, Celtics fans. Rajon Rondo will serve a one-game suspension for making contact with a referee, forcing him to sit out Game 2 in Atlanta.

On March 15th, Danny Ainge and the Boston Celtics came ever so close to finally moving on from the Big 3. In the final hours of this season’s trade deadline, the Celtics had a trade in place to send the aging, injured Ray Allen to the Memphis Grizzlies for O.J. Mayo and a draft pick. […]

Normally a loss to the lowly Toronto Raptors (missing Jose Calderon and Andrea Bargnani, no less) would have me in fits. But this is no normal season, and this wasn’t a normal week. The Boston Celtics took two of three in their one and only back-to-back-to-back of the season, including a win without any members […]
I’m just going to go ahead and say it: 2-2 looks a whole lot better than 0-3. Maybe it isn’t fair to compare the Boston Celtics’ week, as they round into end-of-season form, to that of the Boston Red Sox, but after witnessing the debacle in Detroit, somehow I find myself forgiving Boston’s basketball darlings […]
