The Celtics… Dirty?

That's what Tom Ziller is saying on FanHouse today. That flagrant foul on Anderson Varejao might be the dirtiest NBA play since … Perkins violently threw Jason Maxiell to the floor in January. Is it a pattern yet? Doc Rivers and Tom Thibodeau haven't told their players to decapitate the opponent, I'm sure. But the... [More]

Double Trouble

Double Trouble

Alternate headline:  How not having KG helped the Celtics beat Cleveland. It comes from a simple little quote in Scott Souza's piece today. "I expected them to have a hell of a game," Rivers insisted. "If you are going to bring a big (man) away from the bucket (to double Allen), and you have two... [More]

Prettiest Passer In The League

All you need to know about that photo (click for larger image) is that Rondo got the ball to Perk.  Forget the fact that it looks like he's 5 feet off the floor or that he looks like he's 5' 2" next to Big Z… just know that with two of the biggest players on... [More]

Best Win Of The Year

There are so many places to start with this one, and I'm gonna start with Leon Powe.  With no KG and Big Baby getting tossed for a flagrant 2 (more on that in a minute), Leon Powe stepped up with a HUUUUUUGE game off the bench.  20 points and 11 rebounds in about 25 minutes... [More]

At Least Another Week

That's what Doc Rivers says: "He ran (Thursday), he told me, on the treadmill, and he said he felt great," Rivers said of Garnett. "Other than that, that's the first day he's been able to run. We're just going to take our time. I would say at least a week, and most likely longer." Garnett... [More]

That Was Embarrassing

That Was Embarrassing

In case you missed the Hornets-Mavs game last night… this is the highlight of the game:  Chris Paul dribbling between Jason Terry's legs then dishing it off for a dunk. You know… I think that kid's gonna be an OK player in this league.  Just a hunch.... [More]
