Doc: The series isn’t over

Doc: The series isn’t over

Game 2 gave people a little pause as they wondered if the inevitable Celtics-Heat matchup would get derailed by injuries and apathy that were worse than we thought.  After last night, most people went back to outright dismissing Philly's chances of advancing, citing the Celtics ability to flip a switch and dominate when needed. Today, [...]

Enemy Chatter: Nobody put Pierce or Rondo on the ground

Enemy Chatter: Nobody put Pierce or Rondo on the ground

I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Philadelphia. Really disappointed that nobody put Rondo or Pierce on the ground when they were out there throwing behind the back passes and taking 24 footers when the [...]

Recap: Celtics dominate, bring Philly back to reality

Recap: Celtics dominate, bring Philly back to reality

Can a sprained MCL heal in 48 hours? An uber-aggressive and healthy looking Paul Pierce dropped 24 points and 12 rebounds in Philadelphia as the Celtics dominated Game 3, 107-91. Kevin Garnett continued his dominance: 27 points, 13 rebounds in 30 minutes. Philly has no one who can guard this man consistently.  Rajon Rondo (23 [...]

Did the Celtics try too hard to get Brandon Bass going?

Did the Celtics try too hard to get Brandon Bass going?

There is no doubt about it… Brandon Bass is struggling.   There's also no doubt about this… getting the Brandon Bass that played for the Celtics in the regular season would be a HUGE help for the Celtics.  I know it.  You know it.  The Celtics know it.  So when Brandon Bass hit 3 of [...]

Enemy Chatter: Lavoy Allen neutralized Kevin Garnett

Enemy Chatter: Lavoy Allen neutralized Kevin Garnett

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via Getty Images I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Philadelphia. And finally, Lavoy Allen. I clearly timed my post yesterday around this breakout performance. He played 30 minutes of super-solid basketball, looking more [...]

Recap: Crappy effort, putrid execution dooms Celtics

Recap: Crappy effort, putrid execution dooms Celtics

Remember everything positive we said about the Celtics following the Game 1 victory? I guess it applies to Philadelphia now. The 76ers made the smart, clutch plays down the stretch to beat the Celtics 82-81 in Game 2. Spare me the bitching about the illegal screen whistle on Kevin Garnett with :10 remaining. While I'm [...]

Gm 1 flashback: KG blocks Iguodala, Dooling finishes

Gm 1 flashback: KG blocks Iguodala, Dooling finishes

Not sure what was the more spectacular play. KG blocking the high-flying Andre Iguodala from behind or Keyon Dooling finishing on the break. Can you name the top rated defensive player in the playoffs? It's Kevin Garnett (88.1 defensive rating). Rajon Rondo is fourth.  I believe there's an old saying… defense wins championships.   [...]

Enemy Chatter: Doug Collins responsible for Game 1 meltdown

Enemy Chatter: Doug Collins responsible for Game 1 meltdown

I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Philadelphia. And then the last string of plays to the game demonstrated just how lost he was. While Rajon Rondo was displaying his court awareness, Doug wasn't sure [...]

Rondo’s “drop the mic” post game interview

Rondo’s “drop the mic” post game interview

The Celtics had just polished off the Sixers by dropping a beauty of a 4th quarter performance.  Rajon Rondo was fresh off a dominant quarter and the brilliant final :03 of the game.  And then TNT's David Aldridge caught him for this postgame interview. Boom.  Drop the mic. Leave the stage. This show is over. [...]
