The Last Word On Officials

As per usual, blogs are at least a few days ahead of national story lines.  The story line this week is the officiating.  Today, it's because of Rondo's foul on Brad Miller (watch it here) and whether it should have been a flagrant.

An Indicator Of How Good Pierce Really Is

… or maybe the alternate title is “An indicator of how high we’ve set the bar for Paul.” Pretend we haven’t seen Paul struggle… or debate whether he’s hurt or exhausted… or yelled at the TV when he inexplicably played sloppy.  If you were to come back from a 2 week vacation and long on... [More]

Where Heart Attacks Happen

  Chicago – we'd like to introduce you to Paul Pierce (26 pts, 7 reb) the NBA Finals MVP. (We'll excuse you for missing that 1st free throw with 2 seconds left). Credit to the Bulls, they nearly forced a 2nd OT. Fortunately, Brad Miller choked – on his blood. I'll admit it, I quit... [More]

I’m Guessing Ben Gordon Will Play

Just watched WBZ do a live shot from the Garden and Ben Gordon was there, taking jumpers. He wasn't really getting up off the floor, so it's possible he'll miss the game.  But he wasn't limping around or anything from what I saw.  He's officially a "game time decision."  But my money is on Gordon...

Don’t Let Rondo Down Tonight

Game 5 is a few hours away… and Rajon Rondo needs our help. “I think it’s important for us, to get the crowd in early,” Rondo said. “I think it’s very key. I think it’s one of the most important things besides us playing well tonight is for the crowd to be into it.” You... [More]
