Recap: Grit and balls trumps Knicks clown talk

Recap: Grit and balls trumps Knicks clown talk

Is there anything better than watching somber Knicks fans walk out of Madison Square Garden on a night they hoped to win their 1st playoff series in 13 years? The Celtics scratched and clawed their way to a 92-86 win over New York in a game deemed the Celtics’ funeral by Kenyon Martin. Mr. Big [...]

Recap: Throw in the damn towel

Recap: Throw in the damn towel

It’s over. The series. This season. And hopes that Paul Pierce and KG will contend for another championship. The Knicks beat on the Celtics all night and won Game 3, 90-76. It wasn’t that close. I know the Celtics have been an offensively challenged basketball team for years, and things took a turn for the [...]

Recap: Celtics fade away in 2nd half… again

Recap: Celtics fade away in 2nd half… again

94% of playoff series are won by the team that leads 2-0. Those are some daunting odds facing the Celtics following tonight’s 87-71  loss to the Knicks. Sigh. The Celtics scored 23 points in the 2nd half. That’s a franchise playoff low. They shot 19%. They went the final 9 minutes of the game without [...]

Recap: Turnovers, turnovers, turnovers

Recap: Turnovers, turnovers, turnovers

The Celtics just gave away a game because they couldn’t make routine passes. I refuse to give the Knicks one ounce of credit for their defensive intensity because that would minimize the Celtics ineptitude to make basic plays. You can’t win road playoff games with 20 turnovers. You just can’t. You also can’t win games [...]

Recap: Celtics lose by 24 in season finale

Recap: Celtics lose by 24 in season finale

  While I wanted the Celtics to finish the regular season with an emotional #BostonStrong victory over the Toronto Raptors, it wasn’t meant to be. Doc Rivers rested Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry and played Paul Pierce, Jeff Green and Brandon Bass sparingly. The result was a 114-90 loss to the Raptors. At least no [...]

Recap: Green machine rolls over helpless Magic

Recap: Green machine rolls over helpless Magic

Tonight, Celtics fans finally got to relax and enjoy a wire-to-wire ass kicking. In a meaningless game in Orlando, Boston smokes the Magic 120-88. There were definitely some encouraging things that happened tonight. One of them was that KG looked to be showing no ill effects from his recent foot/ankle injury. Garnett had a productive [...]

Recap: Could’ve been a lot worse

Recap: Could’ve been a lot worse

Laugh at me all you want, but I think tonight could’ve been much worse. Headed into this game, without KG & Pierce, Celtics fans thought that things might get really ugly. Well, despite a Heat 2nd Q for the ages, the C’s actually gave Miami a run for their money tonight. However. the Heat win [...]

Recap: Deron Williams abuses Celtics as Nets roll

Recap: Deron Williams abuses Celtics as Nets roll

That sucked. I expected the Celtics to put forth a strong effort tonight against Brooklyn – one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference. With Paul Pierce, KG and the new starting line-up, the Celtics were supposed get their house in order for the playoffs. Not so much. Deron Williams shredded the Celtics for [...]

Recap: Celtics cruise past Wiz in return of Garnett

Recap: Celtics cruise past Wiz in return of Garnett

The story leading up to the game was the return of Kevin Garnett, but the story of the game was the play of Brandon Bass.  Bass had one of his best games of the season tonight against Washington with 20 points and 6 rebounds. The Celtics cruised past the hapless Wizards who were lead by [...]

Recap: Truth, Ticketless Celtics can’t defend home turf

Cavs come into Boston and end their 10-game losing streak tonight at the expense of the C’s. I’ll cut Boston the obvious slack, as they’re missing KG & Truth, but this was just more of the same: gave up huge numbers to a slightly above-average player (TristanThompson 29 pts & 17 rebs) got clobbered in [...]
