That’s More Like It

That’s More Like It

  If I had told you Paul Pierce was going to score 3 points in just 15 minutes, yet the Celtics would destroy Orlando 112 – 94, you'd have thought I'd gone Paula Abdul crazy. Eddie House was Megan Fox hot tonight: 31 pts, 11-14 FG, 4-4 3FG. He hit some unbelievable shots in this [...]

J.J. Redick Wants Your Best

Via Slam Online: “I just want some creativity, that’s all I want,” Redick said Saturday. “I haven’t heard creative things since college. Like really, I don’t know if it’s the alcohol consumption at NBA games, but there’s nothing remotely creative or funny ever said to me. It’s boring. I’m so conditioned to it now.” You [...]

“Flat…Not Tired.”

“Flat…Not Tired.”

Those are Doc Rivers' words assessing his team's performance in last night's 95-90 loss to the Magic. Quite frankly, I think Doc was rather kind with his description. The Celtics brought pre-season intensity into Game 1 of a playoff series. Inexcusable. What is wrong with Rondo? He looked severely disjointed in the first 3 quarters [...]

Torture

Torture

I'd rather get waterboarded then watch another game like that. The Celtics fell behind by 28 points after a couple of horrible stretches in the 2nd and 3rd quarters. But because Orlando is a poorly coached team that continues to seek out three point shots even when holding a big lead, the C's made this [...]

Anything Left in the Tank?

Anything Left in the Tank?

I have my worries about Game 1 against the Magic on Monday night. There's a good chance the Celtics will be hungover. It's a textbook "letdown" game. Despite the seven game series and all the OTs, Pierce insists he's not fatigued: “I ain’t tired,” Pierce said as he slumped against the wall in the Garden [...]

Good Riddance

Good Riddance

The Celtics finally put away the Chicago Bulls in Game 7, 109-99. The reason? Eddie House (16 pts, 4-4 3FG, 3 steals) and the bench showed up. After a fantastic 2nd quarter, I thought this was going to be an easy night. Not the case. Rather than put their foot down on the Bulls throat [...]

Doc: Neither KG nor Big Foot Will Play

Doc: Neither KG nor Big Foot Will Play

Via the Globe: Celtic coach Doc Rivers quashed rumors of Kevin Garnett reappearing for Saturday night's game against the Chicago Bulls. "Sasquatch is going to show up next," Rivers said after the team's morning shootaround. "I swear, somebody was going to spot Kevin on the floor, and Sasquatch." Courtesy Jess Camerato of WEEI.com: There was [...]

Hinrich’s Version of the Story

Hinrich’s Version of the Story

Here's how Kirk Hinrich described his little skirmish with Rajon Rondo: "I was just boxing him out and he tried to throw me to the side," Hinrich said. "I pushed him, so I guess they looked at it and gave him a flagrant and gave me a technical. I just shoved him." Hinrich said Rondo didn't [...]

You’re Not Enjoying This?

You’re Not Enjoying This?

I'll start by quoting the worst coach/GM in the history of the Boston Celtics – "All the negativity in this town sucks." I am truly disturbed with the negative attitudes of many of our readers. The Celtics and Bulls are about to finish off the greatest playoff series in the history of the NBA and [...]

One More Round

One More Round

A Game 7 is the only way to settle the greatest playoff series in the history of the NBA. Ray Allen was simply awesome: 51 pts, 9-18 3FG and countless big shots in 59 minutes. The Celtics went on a sick 23-3 run in the fourth quarter to take an 8 point lead with 3 [...]
