Pruitt’s Time To Shine

The of the few times preseason wins and losses really matter is when a team has an opportunity to win a game in its final possession.  Last night, the Celtics had that opportunity, and it fell to Gabe Pruitt to make things happen. And he did.  What we're seeing is the first evidence that his... [More]

It didn't take Crazy Ron Artest long to influence the entire Rockets team. Artest continues to embarass himself with his "defensive play." He brutalized Paul Pierce and Ray Allen tonight in NH. The always soft and playoff gag-master Tracy McGrady got into the mix by shoving Bill Walker to the ground and then mixing it... [More]

Pierce Leaves Game With Neck Injury

Paul Pierce was mugged by Ron Artest on the way to the hole in the first quarter… and ended up leaving the game with some sort of neck injury.  It didn't look horrible… but it was enough to send him to the locker room. Artest followed that up by hip-checking Ray Allen out of bounds... [More]

Bring The Crazy

Bring The Crazy

Ron Artest and the Houston Rockets are in town tonight (actually, in Manchester, NH).  The Rockets are still trying to figure out how to play with one another… and when exactly Artest will melt down and destroy the team. T-Mac suited up for the last Houston preseason game but he didn't play.  I don't think he'll... [More]

Am I the only one who sees/feels/senses the Celtics' swagger this year? I know we are just two games into the pre-season but it's there. The guys are looking, walking, talking and playing with such confidence. Maybe it's all in my head. That life-size mural of KG holding the O'Brien trophy that I had painted on my living... [More]

I Can Get Used To This

That was one of the big highlights last night…. but the man of the hour, really, was Tony Allen. The big thing for TA:  16 free throws.  The aggressive Tony Allen is the good Tony Allen.  As for Walker… he played 21 minutes and led the team with 6 rebounds.  Box Score  |  Recap... [More]

CSN Drops Cousy

Comcast SportsNet has let Bob Cousy go.  There's no doubt in my mind that this is some kind of cost-cutting move… because the 3 or 4 games he worked a year must have REALLY been a strain on the budget.  Said Cooz about the move: “Some low-level executive called me,” Cousy told the newspaper in...

Doc Rips Big Baby

Here's the only negative thing Doc had to say about Wednesday night's preseason opener against Philly: “I didn’t think anybody played poorly,” he said before pivoting. “Well, actually I did. I thought Baby (Glen Davis) played poorly, honestly. I thought he turned the ball over, was going too fast, didn’t set a lot of picks.... [More]

Leon > Paul?

ESPN's John Hollinger has put forth another confusing way of ranking players in the NBA. It's called PER or Player Efficiency Rating. Hollinger uses a complex series of formulas "that include positive accomplishments, such as field goals, free throws, 3-pointers, assists, rebounds, blocks and steals, and negative ones, such as missed shots, turnovers and personal...
