Recap: Rajon Rondo takes over down the stretch, Celtics advance

Recap: Rajon Rondo takes over down the stretch, Celtics advance

It looked like a killer moment for the Celtics.  Paul Pierce had committed his 6th foul with 4:16 left in a 3 point game.  The tide appeared to be turning.  This was truly a game changing moment. Except… It changed the game in the Celtics favor…. because Rajon Rondo went absolutely effing nuts.  He scored [...]

Recap: Game 6 was an epic fail

Recap: Game 6 was an epic fail

I've been watching the Celtics for some 30 years and tonight may have been one of the worst performances I've witnessed. The Sixers played mediocre basketball and beat the Celtics, 82-75. The Celtics were… abominable, alarming, appalling, atrocious, deplorable, depressing, dire, disgusting, distressing, dreadful, fearful, frightful, ghastly, grody, gross, gruesome, grungy, harrowing, hideous, horrendous, horrible, [...]

Anatomy of a run: The Celtics take control in the 3rd

Anatomy of a run: The Celtics take control in the 3rd

Whether you want to believe Game 5 turned when Philly missed a chance to put up 4 points after clear path foul or when KG got called for an offensive foul on Spencer Hawes is up to you.  Those were consecutive plays that happened over the span of 19 seconds, so arguing over it is [...]

Recap: Celtics deliver 2nd half Bass-kicking

Recap: Celtics deliver 2nd half Bass-kicking

Raise your hand if you had Brandon Bass in the Game 5 clutch performer pool. Anyone? Anyone? The soft-spoken big man scored 18 of his game high 27 points in the 3rd quarter as the Celtics dominated the 2nd half and beat Philly 101-85. The Celtics were sleep-walking through the first half. They were making [...]

Doc admits C’s should have gone to Bass more

A lot readers said it. A lot of people during the game were tweeting it.   Why wasn't Brandon Bass in the game down the stretch?  At the time, it appeared Doc was riding his recent small-lineup success to try to generate defensive stops and kick-start a stalled offense with some transition basketball.  But in [...]

Recap: The Celtics refused to win this game

Recap: The Celtics refused to win this game

Eighteen point leads are never safe in the NBA, especially when held by the Celtics. Aided by a 76ers team that couldn't shoot straight, the Celtics led by 15 in the 1st quarter, 15 at the half, and 18 early in the 3rd quarter. But in typical Celtics fashion, the C's eased up and gave [...]

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, [...]

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?

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 [...]

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 [...]
