2011 Celtics Free Agent Reports: Arroyo, Murphy, Pavlovic, Wafer

Perhaps the guys who are in limbo the most are the guys who saw little to no time. Carlos Arroyo, Troy Murphy and Sasha Pavlovic were all mid-season pick-ups and all three will most likely not be returning to the Celtics next year. Von Wafer, on the other hand, has a chance to be back […]

New-Look Celtics Shut Out of Final Six Minutes; Lose in Denver

When asked about the many trades the Boston Celtics made right before Thursday’s 3 pm trade deadline, many of the players said they were shocked. Thursday night in Denver, they played like it, too. The Boston Celtics did not score in the final six minutes of the fourth quarter, allowing the Denver Nuggets to go […]

Beat the Heat: Celtics’ 35-Point Third Quarter Powers Them to Top Spot in East

Coaches always stress that to win games in the NBA, you have to “play all four quarters.” But sometimes, all you need to do is play one quarter really well. The Celtics shot 83.3 percent in the third quarter of Sunday’s home game against the Miami Heat, scoring 35 points and building up a lead […]

Ray Allen Sets Record; Celtics Fall Apart Against Lakers

It didn’t take long in Thursday night’s game for Ray Allen to put his name into the NBA record book. After missing his first long range attempt, Allen came through on his next two to both tie and pass Reggie Miller for the all-time three point record in NBA history. Allen hit the 2,560th and […]

Kendrick Perkins Return Just What the Doc Ordered

A little “Perk” from everyone. On the night when Kendrick Perkins made his season debut, the Boston Celtics came away with the 112-95 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Perkins made his much anticipated debut Tuesday night after going down in Game 6 of the NBA Finals last season with an ACL injury. Perkins wasn’t the […]

Triple Play: Twelve Three Pointers Helps End Celtics’ Losing Streak

For the first half of the game, Paul Pierce was the Celtics’ primary offensive weapon, scoring 21 points to keep Boston ahead of the Sacramento Kings. Pierce didn’t play much in the second half (he finished with 25 points), but he didn’t have to. A 33-18 third quarter built an insurmountable Celtics lead, powering Boston […]

Pierce and Allen Lead Fourth-Quarter Comeback as Celtics Win at Home

The Boston Celtics had not had a lead since just under four minutes remaining in the second quarter. The Minnesota Timberwolves led by eight points with just over seven minutes left in the game. But the Timberwolves had already lost seven games in which they’d led by at least 10 points this season, and the […]

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 […]

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 […]

More Trouble With Delonte West: Leaves His Future in Doubt

Delonte West is once again in trouble after many had hoped he would be able to turn his attitude around. West was involved in a fist fight with teammate Von Wafer today after a practice that saw West getting extremely physical while matched up against Wafer. The two are sharing a similar role on the […]

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 […]

Celtics Sign Von Wafer

The Celtics took care of their need at shooting guard, signing former Houston Rocket Von Wafer. This is the¬†eighth team the 25-year-old has played for in his four-year career. Wafer was drafted in the second round of the 2005 NBA Draft by the Los Angeles Lakers after playing just two seasons for Florida State University. […]

McGrady-less Rockets Beat Celtics in Boston

When things are going bad (and they are now that the Celts have lost six of their last eight games), someone named Von Wafer hits a huge shot to beat you. The Celtics suffered such a fate Wednesday night as the Rockets guard (filling in for an injured Tracy McGrady) hit a go-ahead three-pointer with […]
