I know that comments aren't as much fun to read when we lose, but these are worth it just to show how absolutely pathetic Knicks fans are. I've never seen so much complaining about the refs. Even the TNT announcers mentioned the fact that the Knicks were so physical that the refs could probably call a foul on them every time down. Yes, the Celtics shot more free throws than the Knicks, but I could have pointed out just as many fouls they committed but didn't get called for. And these fans are the dregs of society. Wishing that Rondo has herniated discs and Pierce tore a ligament. That goes way beyond what is acceptable. Yep, you have to read these to realize just how absolutely ugly and pitiful Knicks fans are.
We need to do to the C's what teams have been doing to us on the offensive boards. They suck on the boards and we need to make them pay
Until its official I'm not giving up on trying to go for the division. Gotta hope for something
Must slow ...
BEST OF MAXIM
ALMOST PULLED THE TRIGGER
Reports indicate that the Boston Celtics almost traded to the two future Hall of Famers at the NBA's trade deadline.
Boston 102, Orlando 98
After failing to clinch the Atlantic Division last night in New York, the Celtics were able to seal the deal at home with a 102-98 victory over possible first round playoff foe Orlando.
News hit just before game time that Boston would be severely short-handed at the guard position tonight. There would be no Ray Allen, Mickael Pietrus or Rajon Rondo for the...
No KG or Pierce tonight vs #hawks to get rest. #celtics— gary washburn (@GwashNBAGlobe) April 20, 2012
The Globe's Gary Washburn tweeted that Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett will both sit out tonight's game vs the Hawks. Looks like they are willing to sacrifice home court to assure healthy players entering the playoffs.
Sean Williams is expected to be in uniform tonight...
Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce did all he could on Wednesday, expanding his role on an injury shortened lineup and catapulted the Celtics to a 102-98 win over the Orlando Magic which clinched the Atlantic Division title for Celtics for the fifth year in a row. It came one night after he scored 43 points. [...]
According to Adrian Wojnarowski the Celtics were close to pulling off two major deals at the trade deadline back in March. One deal would have sent Ray to Memphis for O.J. Mayo and a pick. The other would have sent Pierce to New Jersey for Mehmet Okur and the Nets 1st rd pick this year. Following from Yahoo.com.
NEW YORK – As the NBA trade deadline lurched into its final hour...
Paul Pierce had 29 points and a career-high 14 assists and the Boston Celtics clinched at least a tie for the Atlantic Division title as they held off a late charge by the Orlando Magic for a 102-98 win Wednesday night.
Boston (37-26) has a 3 1-2-game lead over New York (33-29). The Celtics have three games left and the Knicks, who beat the New Jersey Nets 104-95, have four.
Since tonight’s game in Atlanta could very well decide who receives home court advantage in the first round, it’s safe to say Doc Rivers has officially entered “I’m really banking on the fact that we can beat Atlanta or Orlando on the road” mode. Either that or he’s banking on Avery Bradley scoring 45 points, Sean Williams and Greg Stiemsma combining for 17 blocked...
BOSTON (AP) -- Paul Pierce had 29 points and a career-high 14 assists and the Boston Celtics clinched at least a tie for the Atlantic Division title as they held off a late charge by the Orlando Magic for a 102-98 win Wednesday night.

Paul Pierce knows how to make plays when the chips are down. That is what he has done for years and years.
This moment would be no different.
Twice he found a way to crush the Magic and put away a game where the Celtics just could not put it away. Not until the end. Not until Paul Pierce laid down The Truth.
And Pierce showed that, while the Magic might be a grittier, harder working...
In what might shock most people outside of Boston, especially after the Celtics went into the All-Star Break with a 15-17 record, the C’s clinched the Atlantic Division title tonight with a 102-98 win over the Orlando Magic. Going into the 2011/12 NBA season, it was generally accepted that the Carmelo Anthony-led New York Knicks would cruise to the division crown over a pretty...
Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Ray Allen was a member of the Memphis Grizzlies for 20 minutes:
As the NBA trade deadline lurched into its final hour a month ago, league sources say the call Ray Allen long feared had come: Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers was on the line, telling him he had been traded. Allen had been sent to the Memphis Grizzlies for a package including O.J. Mayo...
Telling a player he has been traded, only to call back a short time later to tell him he actually has not been traded after all, could be described a number of ways. Awkward. Uncomfortable. Possibly volatile. Doc Rivers had another word to describe a report that Ray Allen and Paul Pierce were nearly traded away in March, which Rivers confirmed prior to Wednesday's game against...
This was supposed to be the year Father Time finally caught up with the Boston Celtics.
This was supposed to be the year they finally realized they're too old and too slow and too fragile to compete with the NBA's rising stars.
This was supposed to be the year the Celtics finally relinquished their hold on the Atlantic Division and stepped to the side, giving the Knicks...
If you told me at the beginning of the season that Avery Bradley and Sasha Pavlovic would start a mid-April tilt against the Orlando Magic, I would have puked on my shirt, walked into my closet to retrieve a new one, cried for 20 minutes, eaten two gallons of chocolate ice cream, and then braced myself for all sorts of ugly. But this is not the beginning of the season, so when...
