Lakers Choke Against Pacers

I'm going to guess our normal Lakers trolls won't be coming around to celebrate this: INDIANAPOLIS (AP)—Danny Granger scored 32 points and led Indiana back from a 15-point fourth-quarter deficit, and Troy Murphy’s buzzer-beating tip-in completed an improbable 118-117 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night. The Lakers came into the game with... [More]

Tony Allen May Sit

Tony Allen came back from his sprained ankle last night… but it's not 100%.  Doc Rivers says Allen might miss the Pacers game “He’s probably probable at best,” Rivers initially determined before elaborating just a bit. “It got pretty big last night after the game so there’s probably a very good chance he may not...

Pierce or Carmelo?

That is the question being posed on Dime Magazine. Part of the argument for Paul: P-Double is a warrior. Night after night this guy just gets it done. So much so that the two All-Star teammates that flank him just keep feeding him the rock in the clutch.  Unlike Anthony, Pierce demands the ball and... [More]

The Truth Revealed

SI has a big feature on Paul Pierce coming out in tomorrow's issue.  I was sent an advance copy of the article.  Here are some of the highlights: Pierce on his standing in the NBA: "I've always been the Rodney Dangerfield of this game," he says. "Maybe it was meant to be that way, but... [More]

Best Assist Man In The NBA?

Gary Tanguay makes that statement, pretty definitively On the Late Edition I made the statement that many of the top scorers in the NBA would want Rondo as their point guard because he gets the stars the ball in the right spot at the right time and never thinks about his own shot first (... [More]

Don’t Make Him Angry

Thanks to a sloppy 2nd quarter, the Celtics lead by only a bucket (48-46) at the break. But a funny thing happened in the 3rd quarter – Paul Pierce got pissed off. 17-points-in-the-quarter pissed off. Turns out he didn't like the 3 BS fouls called on him in the first half. The Celtics coasted 107-88... [More]

This Might Not Be The Test We Expect

On the surface, it looks like a good test for the Celtics.  The 13-4 Orlando Magic, winners of 4 in a row and currently just 2.5 games behind the Celtics in the East, come into town with Dwight Howard coming off a monster 32 point, 21 rebound game. But Jameer Nelson, who is chipping in... [More]

Oooh… Sessy

The Celtics are on GQ's "Men of the Year" list.  This list magically includes Megan Fox… who wasn't a man when I last checked (which was in the magical movie studio called "my imagination").  Looks like Perk is getting a good view of Rajon Rondo's back tattoo.  This photo just proves one thing… the Celtics...

Better Than Expected

The Celtics made it through their 6th back-to-back situation in a month.  That's 1/3 of their back-to-backs out of the way in one month.  The've got no more than 3 in any month from now on.  And they've managed to lose only one of those back-end games. In fact, the Celtics have come out of... [More]

Nothing To Write Home About

I've been thinking of the best way to describe this game… and the best thing I could come up with is… Nothing. This game had a whole lotta nothing going on.  There was no flow to it.  No stand-out performance.  No real exciting moment.  The last 2 minutes almost became a duel between Gerald Wallace... [More]
