Celtics Blow Lead, Let Philly Back in Series

Iguodala_jpg_1407870cl-8

Andre Iguodala squared up for a 3-pointer from the wing like he had hundreds of times in his career. This shot was different from all the others. Iguodala continued a postseason where his final numbers don’t pop on the box score, but the buckets are as pivotal as they get. He snapped a tie game [...]

Rondo’s Suspension Not A Surprise

rondo2-3196

Rajon Rondo, as expected, has received a one game suspension for chest-bumping referee Marc Davis and will unfortunately miss Game 2 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series against the Atlanta Hawks. This really shouldn’t come as a surprise as league rules state that if a player or coach intentionally physically contacts an official, it is [...]

Celtics Practice Notes Before Playoff Series Versus Atlanta

The veteran Celtics will have to dig deep to get through these road trips

The chase to banner number 18 will begin Sunday in Atlanta.  Before leaving, the Celtics held a practice on Friday afternoon with near perfect attendance heading into the playoffs.

Then I remembered that the game was at the Garden and it was a nationally-televised game, also known as Rajon Rondo’s time to shine. The C’s point guard puts up ridiculous [...]

Celtics Cruise to Victory, Go Top of Division

Love vs. Garnett

The Celtics were able to do last night what most teams have been unable to do for most of the season – neutralize Kevin Love. The T-Wolves power forward has been putting up ridiculous numbers this season with ease. He had three 40-point games in March alone and fell just 9 points short last night [...]

Celtics Trade Rumors and Speculation

Celtics Trade Rumors and Speculation

1 more week. 1 more week. 1 more week. Thankfully, we will only have to suffer through trade rumors and speculation for only one more week with the trade deadline on March 15th. The Celtics are prepared to entertain offers for Paul Pierce, whose subtraction from the Boston core would be the most advantageous to the post-Big Three [...]
