Paul Pierce can’t get caught up in battling LeBron anymore

Paul Pierce can’t get caught up in battling LeBron anymore

  May 18, 2008. Five years ago.  Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals.  LeBron James was 23 years-old, a year removed from an embarrassing Finals sweep at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs, and, at the time, believed to be on the cusp of leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a championship.  Surely, people [...]

A few words about Rondo’s night

A few words about Rondo’s night

  I don't want to get into any "I told you so" disguised as flowery prose with Rajon Rondo.  I don't want to get into fights about his consistency or how he should play on any given night.  Right now I just want to appreciate for a minute the amazing performance by Rondo last night. [...]

Video: KG loses focus, C’s lose an opportunity

  With less than a minute to go in the OT, the Celtics had a shot to cut the Miami lead to 3 or even 2.  The Celtics drew up a play for Ray Allen. He inbounds, goes to the baseline and then circles back between 2 picks in hopes of getting a 3.  Looked [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where the refs missed 5 or 6 calls somewhere

Your Morning Dump… Where the refs missed 5 or 6 calls somewhere

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. The general manager of the Boston Celtics was trying to understand how LeBron James could get to the free-throw line those 24 times, and so Danny Ainge [...]

Recap: Sometimes grit and balls isn’t enough

Recap: Sometimes grit and balls isn’t enough

An epic performance by Rajon Rondo and a tremendous "grit and balls" effort by the Celtics tonight was marred by wretched officiating.  I didn't want to bitch about the officials. The game was too good. But I can't stomach the bias. Just look at the photo. With the game tied at 105 in overtime, Rondo [...]

Doc is hurtin’ too

Doc is hurtin’ too

The Herald’s Steve Bulpett has an injury update on… Doc Rivers? Rivers told the Herald he has been diagnosed with a herniated disc and that he took an epidural to relieve the pain. “It’s been going on for about four weeks,” he said. “I think it was in Game 4 or 5 against Philly that [...]

Shootaround: Ray Allen is not taking it easy

Shootaround: Ray Allen is not taking it easy

In an effort to maximize Allen’s on-court production, the Celtics had previously limited his offday (and even day-of-game) activity. But one day after debating whether to potentially sit Allen in Game 2, the Celtics essentially went in the complete opposite direction and told Allen to go back to his shot-heavy routine in hopes of sparking [...]

What to do with Ray Allen

What to do with Ray Allen

Here we are again.  Ray Allen's ankle is a mess and the injury is permeating his entire game.  He can't cut, he can barely shoot, he's routinely beaten off the dribble.  It's bad. Yet…. There he was, valiantly doing other things to help the team as best he could.  He grabbed 5 rebounds (2 offensive) [...]

Shootaround notes: Pietrus to stay on the bench

Shootaround notes: Pietrus to stay on the bench

Via ESPN Boston's Chris Forsberg: With Ray Allen still fighting through right ankle woes, there's a line of thought that suggests maybe Boston would be better off utilizing more Mickael Pietrus this round in order to beef up defense against Dwyane Wade. Rivers shot down the notion heading into Game 1.  "No, we’re going to stay the way we are," [...]

Video:  Rondo’s killer 3

  After the game, Doc Rivers said he thought Rondo was a good shooter when he catches the ball in rythm.  He also said you could tell Rondo wanted this shot.   The kid showed some big-time sack in taking that shot.  And check out Pierce's reaction…. This team kills me sometimes.  I feel like [...]
