Garnett helps Celtics hold off Heat in clutch: BOS 115 MIA 107

If I told you before the season that in a Celtics-Heat game: one team would shoot 60%, out-rebound their opponent 40-34, score their highest point total of the season and have one of their star players go 5-for-5 in the fourth quarter to hold off the opposition you would probably guess that team was the Heat. Nope, it was Boston. The "old Celtics" showed tonight that...

Big men (or lack there of) the story once again as Celtics contain Heat

Kevin Garnett was spectacular against the Miami Heat Every so often, Boston’s Bettah gets guest contributions for other bloggers, random people, or people who are probably better writers than us.

Doc Rivers Admits Mistake In Altering Celtics' Substitution Pattern Against Raptors

The lineup the Celtics sent out to start the second quarter on Friday was reminiscent of one of those thrown-together squads the Red Sox send out for the nightcap of a doubleheader in the dog days of July. The only thing missing was a last-second call-up from Pawtucket rocking jersey No. 74. The Celtics instead had Keyon Dooling, Ryan Hollins, Sasha Pavlovic, Mickael Pietrus and...

Brandon Bass Endures Scare, Puts In Another Strong Night's Work for Celtics

BOSTON -- The look on Doc Rivers' face was enough to make a diehard Celtics fan's heart stop.

Chris Bosh sealed off Garnett in the post, received a pass from Dwyane Wade and scored a simple layup. Garnett grabbed the ball out of the net and angrily bumped the ball against his head before inbounding it to Rajon Rondo, muttering...

Avery Bradley, Kevin Garnett make John Hollinger’s First Team All-Defense

In all honesty: I occasionally wake up at 4 a.m. with sweat dripping down my face after dreaming about trying to dribble the ball past halfcourt with Avery Bradley defending me.If you know me, you know “in all honesty” can be loosely translated as “I’m about to make up some ******** in order to tell a bad joke.” But still, scoring and dribbling and trying to complete...

Ray Allen doubtful to return to the Celtics on Saturday against New Jersey

This news comes on the heels of hearing that Allen didn't make the trip to Toronto for tonight's game against the Raptors.

Let Ray have the first game off, rest up and throw him out there for a normal back-to-back scenario. That's...
