Can This Man Keep Up with Rondo?

Can This Man Keep Up with Rondo?

Meet 34-year old Anthony Johnson, Magic starting point guard for tonight's pivotal Game 3. I think it's safe to say Rajon Rondo poses a major match-up problem. Rondo is coming off an 18 assist performance in which he got into the paint at will with Rafer Alston covering him. What are the chances Johnson can [...]

Rafer Alston Suspended

Rafer Alston Suspended

Grab a piece of the pine, son… you've been suspended one game.  I'll reiterate how that screws Orlando because they're starting game 3 now with perhaps the worst point guard left in the playoffs trying to guard perhaps the best point guard in the playoffs.  Have fun with that. (via thirdquartercollapse) [...]

Rafer vs Eddie

Rafer vs Eddie

Another look at Rafer Alston slapping Eddie House. In my opinion, anything less than a suspension is complete BS. But as I read over the league rules, there appears to be a loophole. According to the rule book, a technical foul shall be assessed for unsportsmanlike tactics such as: A deliberately-thrown elbow or any attempted [...]

It Was a Good Win, But….

It Was a Good Win, But….

The Celtics played extremely well last night. Great defensive intensity. Crisp ball movement (34 assists on 41 baskets). Pounded the paint (40 points, and one fantastic effort by Perk). And most importantly, they never let up. They didn't allow Orlando to creep back and take one morsel of optimism from this game. All this with [...]

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 [...]

Cs Look to Throw Counter Punch

1 @ 0 Wednesday, May 6, 2009 8:00 pm ET TD BankNorth Garden (Boston, MA) The outcome of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals was a tough one to swallow for Celtics supporters.

Let’s Not Focus On The Wrong Thing Here

It's very easy for us Celtics fans to focus on the furious second half comeback in which the Celtics.  We're looking for the positive.  We're looking for something to give us hope heading into game 2.  That's what fans do in a game like that.  But let's not make the mistake of focusing on the [...]

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 [...]
