Recap: 12 good minutes won’t cut it vs Miami

Recap: 12 good minutes won’t cut it vs Miami

Fueled by a 35-point outburst in the 2nd quarter, the Celtics had us all believing at halftime that a Game 1 victory was possible. But faith quickly dissolved into disgust as the Celtics offense collapsed returned to form in the 2nd half. The end result: a 93-79 Heat victory. Rajon Rondo (16 points, 9 rebounds, [...]

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," [...]

The Celtics CAN win this series, if these things happen

The Celtics CAN win this series, if these things happen

I'm not going to lie to you folks.  I think Miami is going to win this series.   When you look at this objectively, the Celtics are just too banged up.  Without Avery Bradley, their best scoring option off the bench (Ray Allen) is now starting.  Their only other option is Mickael Pietrus, who needs [...]

Woj: Rondo is coming for the Heat

Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski wrote a spectacular column on Rajon Rondo and the threat he poses to the Miami Heat: Rondo’s rising again, on a tear for months, and he’s still the biggest potential barrier between Miami and a return to the NBA Finals. He was his genius passing and playmaking self – 16 assists, one [...]

LeBron, Wade and Bosh will NOT play tonight

LeBron, Wade and Bosh will NOT play tonight

I had a feeling Miami's trio would sit once I saw reports the Heat were practicing hard this morning. Heat reporter Brian Windhorst confirms Chris Bosh will sit and assumes the same about LBJ and D-Wade. This is a perfect scenario for the Celtics. They should be able to secure the win without taxing any [...]

Recap: Celtics prove Heat “ain’t so bad”

I was wrong. After getting embarrassed last week in Boston, I thought the Heat were going to pound the Celtics tonight. Wrong, wrong, wrong. The Celtics walked into Miami and bitch-slapped the Heat, 115-107. What's even more shocking, they did it with offense. They shot 60% and 63% from three. This was a tough win. [...]

Enemy Chatter: Rondo treated Heat guards like they were chairs

Enemy Chatter: Rondo treated Heat guards like they were chairs

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 Miami. Rondo, treating Heat point guards Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole like they were chairs, was his herky-jerky best. He had 16 points, 12 rebounds and 13 assists in 37 minutes. It [...]
