I Wonder What Sam Smith Thinks Now

So much for the 'Paul Pierce is hurt' theory.  Paul Pierce woke up, smoked the Bulls early, and watched from the bench as the the last 5 players mopped up a blowout win that reclaimed home court for the Celtics.  But the Captain isn't content with just holding serve for the rest of the first...

Public Enemy #1

Rajon Rondo remains the focus of the Chicago Bulls. If they have any shot of winning this series, they have to slow down Rondo. Here's the latest out of Chi-town: The Bulls won't win another game in this best-of-seven playoff series with the Boston Celtics if they can't contain Rajon Rondo. The Celtics point guard... [More]

Wings Actually Slow Rondo Down

Rajon Rondo is so fast, wings would ruin his aerodynamics and slow him down.  But he’s growing them anyway, thanks to a sponsorship with Red Bull.  They were so happy to have him, they gave him a ride to Game 1.  2 observations in that photo: 1:  Ring on the middle finger.  Just how it... [More]

Tony Allen Has to Go

This Tony Allen death threat story is the final straw for me: …sources say (Allen) has made a very bad enemy in his hometown. Allen had been the target of alleged death threats for several months now, sources told Yahoo! Sports, and the Celtics’ visit to Chicago is now blanketed with around-the-clock protection. “I wouldn’t... [More]

Doc Pulling For Powe

Very interesting item in the Herald: “Oh, I lobby all the time. I just don’t do it publically,’’ he said. “I lobby for all my guys. Any guy that has your team at heart, I’m lobbying for him. It’s good to have soldiers in your locker room. “Forget the basketball. For me that’s a huge... [More]

Rajon Rondo Is Fine

I said somewhere to someone that the Celtics can withstand losing KG better than they can withstand losing Rajon Rondo… and I stick by that comment.  So watching Rondo get carried off at the end of the game, after everything seemed fine, was a bit scary.  We've kinda gone through it in some of the...

Crashing Down to Earth

Wow. The Bulls really crapped themselves tonight. After two gutsy performances in Boston, they returned home (as 3-point favorites too) to a rowdy crowd only to fall flat on their faces. It was beautiful to watch. Paul Pierce came out smokin'. He went 6-6 with 13 points in the first quarter as the Celtics stormed... [More]
