That Vaunted Lakers Defense, Pt. II

The Lakers defense just seems to love leaving wide open lanes and allowing the Celtics free looks at the hoop.  Leon Powe got one in Game 2… and Ray Allen got one at the most critical point of the game last night. Celtics up 3… less than :20 on the clock… and Ray blew by... [More]

Greatest Comeback Ever….

Down 24 points to the team with the greatest player on the planet and the greatest coach ever, somehow, someway, the Celtics managed to beat the Lakers 97-91 tonight. No team leading 3-1 has ever failed to win the NBA Finals.  Paul Pierce (20 pts, 7 assists) was magnificent – defensively. He blanketed Kobe Bryant... [More]

No Limp

From what I'm seeing on Comcast and reading on Boston.com, Rondo looks good: Rajon Rondo walked onto the Staples Center floor at 6:27 p.m., EDT. He had both ankles taped, his injured left ankle no more heavily wrapped than his right. The Celtics point guard did some light shooting. He got good elevation on his... [More]

Enough Already… KG Gets It

You can't hear anything about the Celtics now without getting a "and KG needs to get into the post!" sort of comment. Valid point… now we can all stop making it.  KG gets it.  He's answered the "aggressiveness" question about a thousand times since Game 3.  He answered it again yesterday (at the 1:20 mark…...

Oh That Doc… He So Crazy

For the second time this series… a perimeter has gone down… and Doc Rivers has mentioned Tony Allen as a potential starter to replace him if he can't go.  A totally freaked out BostonSportz has the proof.  If the Celtics get up by 15 or so… I could see bringing Tony Allen in for a... [More]

The Donaghy Effect?

A couple of weeks ago, the NBA decided it wanted to get $1 million from Tim Donaghy as reimbursement for their investigation into his gambling (and also a little something… you know… for the effort).  Donaghy's lawyers responded by dropping a bombshell that refs fixed past playoff games… and they did it right before the biggest game… of...

We Really Want This One

A win in Game 3 would have been nice…. but its not exactly critical to the Celtics chances of winning it all.  Game 4 isn't really "critical" either… but this is the one we all should REEEEEEEEEEEALLY want.  Going up 3-1 in the series would make all of our lives so much easier (like "what...

“Get Your Rest”

All day Wednesday, ESPN was including in its Finals coverage a clip of Doc Rivers after the game telling his guys to "Get your rest."  I thought it was an interesting point for him to be stressing, but I figured he just wanted to make sure the guys got his message.  What I didn't know is... [More]

“I Think I’ll Play”

X-Rays are negative… nobody's 100%… and Rajon Rondo says he' thinks he's gonna play.  The video of him talking after practice (which he sat out) is here. What Rondo actually has is a bone bruise, and not a sprained ankle.  We'll see how he does.  Here's some other post-practice videofrom Posey, Powe, Ray and Sam.... [More]

Rondo Just 50%?

I'm really concerned about Rondo's ankle. In his blog, our speedy point guard talks about how the injury  happened and how he's feeling: If you were watching the game you know that I injured my ankle in the third quarter. It happened on a fast break and I rolled it. I think I may have... [More]
