Video: Pierce’s dagger 3 in super slow-mo

Video: Pierce’s dagger 3 in super slow-mo

  As always with these, there are fun things to look for that aren't always visible in normal speed or even some of the replays.  My favorite?   It comes at the :26-28 stretch.  It's a guy in the stands between Pierce's shoulder and LeBron's shoulder.  After the shot goes in.  It's a double face palm.  [...]

Boston’s Mayor: “KJ” & “Hondo” critical to C’s recent success

Boston’s Mayor: “KJ” & “Hondo” critical to C’s recent success

  That there is good ol' Mayah of Boston, Thomas M. "Mumbles" Menino, talking about two of the keys to the Celtics' success…. "KJ" and "Hondo" Yup… I keep marveling at those Hondo to KJ alley oops.  Miami really has no answer for that. You know, some people might look at this as a facepalm [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Rondo & KG is like Magic & Kareem

Your Morning Dump… Where Rondo & KG is like Magic & Kareem

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Q: One other thing going back to the history of the league and the history of it repeating itself, Kareem when he got Magic was invigorated.  That [...]

The Basketball Gods smite Miami with block-to-3-pointer comeuppance

The Basketball Gods smite Miami with block-to-3-pointer comeuppance

This play was all kinds of amazing in a very short time:   The block by Wade on the Bass dunk attempt?  Nasty?  Rondo recognizing in the span of less than two seconds, that Mickael Pietrus is in the corner and then slapping it to him while getting fouled (how big was THAT no-call??) was [...]

The Celtics: A team that defies numbers

The Celtics: A team that defies numbers

I had a private conversation last night with someone who was forced to admit something that we should all know isn’t true anyway. Numbers don’t mean everything. That’s not to say numbers, in this case the advanced stats movement that has swept NBA journalism, aren’t important.  They are.  They say a lot.  They tell us [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where these are the Boston Cockroaches

Your Morning Dump… Where these are the Boston Cockroaches

 Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. I'm gonna change the name of this team.  This team was hanging in there so much.  They came out… whatever Miami did to kill them off, they [...]

Celtics win the craziest F’ing playoff game I’ve ever seen, 1 win from returning to Finals

Celtics win the craziest F’ing playoff game I’ve ever seen, 1 win from returning to Finals

Do you know what just happened?  Does anyone? I'll repeat what I said on Twitter earlier during the game.  I've never seen a team so close in a basketball game but teeter so close to total collapse like the Celtics did all night.  They had a million chances to fold, and it looked like they'd [...]

Bosh won’t start, will play “short bursts”, if at all

Bosh won’t start, will play “short bursts”, if at all

Twitter / Pflanns: Chris Bosh is still a game via kwout Why would Miami play the guy if he's not ready to go full bore?  Either Bosh is ready or he's not…. or Spoelstra is BS'ing us and he'll play 34 minutes. [...]

Doc: Last year’s team would be out of the playoffs already

Doc: Last year’s team would be out of the playoffs already

Doc Rivers has, from time to time, shown he’s not entirely fond of last year’s Celtics team.  He’ll tell you flat out that last year’s team was more talented than this one, but this one actually plays together.  In a conference call today, less than a day removed from a tough, gritty win to even [...]

Enemy Chatter: Bosh had better find himself a cape

Enemy Chatter:  Bosh had better find himself a cape

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics.  Here's a look at some enemy chatter from Miami With a healthy 6-foot-11 Bosh in the fold, the Heat's attack can be stabilized again. The question is, will he be healthy? The truth is we don't know; heck, the [...]
