Comments from the Other Side - Grizzlies 3/23

I was very surprised to see how few Grizzlies fans were posting on the boards.  Maybe some of the usual posters were at the game but given the fact that there were also plenty of Celtics fans at the game and how successful the Grizz have been,  you would think there would be more fans posting.  I had to laugh at the reaction to Tony's foul on the 3 at the end.  I recall so...

Garnett missed two games because of a strained left adductor muscle and the flu, but returned for two games, combining...

Underrated Stat of the Night - Grizzlies 3/23

Tonight's 110-106 loss to the Grizzlies was filled with ups and downs. The Celtics got off to nice start, but slipped in the second and third quarters. Their fourth quarter contained a rally that didn't start until about the 6:00 mark. Had it started earlier, they definitely would've won. But it didn't. What's done is done. Tonight's USOTN easily goes to...

Celtics Road Woes Continue with 110-106 Loss to the Grizzlies

Just a few random thoughts for tonight's post game wrap up.  First, KG's injury is troubling.  He didn't seem to injure the foot in the game but they said he was walking gingerly afterwards.   It is being described as a foot injury rather than an ankle injury. And the fact that they are going to take an MRI makes it even more worrisome.    I remember back in that...

Personally, I hate that...
