More Minutes for Ray, Paul

Via the Globe: Coach Doc Rivers said Pierce and Ray Allen will be candidates for added minutes as the Celtics await the return of Tony Allen (thumb surgery), Kevin Garnett (knee strain), and Brian Scalabrine (concussion, scheduled for more tests). Pierce played all but the last 18 seconds in Sunday's loss to Detroit. Great news.... [More]

Power Rankings

I apologize – it's been a few weeks since my last Power Rankings. For the thousands of readers who emailed me demanding updated rankings – here goes: 1. Lakers – Still on top despite the two-game losing streak (PHX and DEN). Phil Jackson needs to be careful with Pau Gasol's minutes. Road games against POR,... [More]

Pruitt Returns

He practiced today, and is available on Wednesday.   He also talked about his arrest. "This is the first time anything like that has happened to me and it was scary," Pruitt said. "It's not like I'm an alcoholic or anything, it's just an individual experience, of one night. I just made a bad decision... [More]

Did Danny Blow It?

Danny Ainge pulled some genius moves last year to get the Celtics Banner 17.  But that magic hasn't quite carried over to this year.  The Patrick O'Bryant signing was a total bust.  Sam Cassell never got off the bench.  We'll have to wait and see how the Stephon Marbury deal works out.  And now with...

The New Lucky

The New Lucky

  I was at the Celtics game last Friday when during a time-out, this video was played on the big screen a.k.a. "CelticVision".  This guy got the crowd going much more than Lucky would.  I think he would have a shot at being the next Lucky if he were about 8 inches shorter and actually... [More]

Chris Bosh = RuPaul?

Shaq is taking his war of words with Chris Bosh to another level: "I heard what Chris Bosh said, and that's strong words coming from the RuPaul of big men," O'Neal said. "I'm going to do the same thing (in their next meeting) I did before — make him quit. Make 'em quit and complain.... [More]

Depth a Real Problem

The Celtics medical staff has officially diagnosed Brian Scalabrine with his 3rd concussion in less than a month. He's out indefinitely. “You can’t do anything,” Scalabrine said of the last week’s inactivity. “I can’t watch TV for more than 30 minutes. I can’t read a book. I can talk to my wife, but she gets...

Doc Doesn’t Know What Rest Means

Last Monday, Doc had this to say about keeping the Big 3 fresh: “Even if I play a Billy (Walker) and a Gabe (Pruitt) and we’re struggling with them in, I’ve got to sit and take it because I can’t burn Paul and Ray out. That’s going to be a tough one." Apparently Doc can't... [More]

We all hate the guy for his theatrics, but Rip Hamilton (25 pts, 9 assists, 6 reb) killed the Celtics today. Coupled with the fact that Ray Allen (10 pts, 2-1o FG) was a no-show and you get a 105-95 Pistons victory at the Garden. The Celtics play was too streaky. They had strong runs... [More]
