Celtics vs. 76ers
November 10, 1979
It’s fair to say Larry Bird never saw anyone quite like Julius Erving during his time at Indiana State.
Undaunted by the one of the most premiere players in the league, Bird and the Celtics entered Philadelphia intending to make a statement that they were the best team in the East. The 76ers, however, were not overly impressed. Billy Cunningham’s bunch built an 11-point lead in front of a sellout crowd of 18,276 of Philadelphia’s finest after three quarters of play.
The Celtics fought in the fourth quarter, outscoring the Sixers by ten points, but ultimately fell short in a 95-94 defeat. The Celtics could be proud of holding Philly under 20 in both the third and fourth quarter, but the C’s left with a missed opportunity after only delivering 14 points in the third. In a game where his team was out-rebounded and did not distribute as many assists, Dr. J was the difference-maker. Erving finished with 37 points in his first battl...

Sean Grande, aka the radio voice of the Boston Celtics, just tweeted this breaking news:
Here it is: Jason Terry and Brandon Bass move into the starting lineup for the Celtics tonight, replacing Courtney Lee and Jared Sullinger.

Okay. There is quite a bit more to this story but I love when Rajon Rondo talks trash, especially agains The Boston Celtics point guard sat down with Mut and Merloni of WEEI and discussed a variety of topics. Rondo talked about the Celtics slow start and the new guys getting acclimated. Rondo also discusses his [...]
BOSTON — The year before Kevin Garnett came to Boston, he logged nearly 40 minutes per night for the Minnesota Timberwolves, purely out of necessity. That Wolves squad was so thin that the infamous Mark Blount was the third-leading scorer, and nobody other than Garnett grabbed more than five rebounds or blocked more than one shot a night.
That was seven years ago.
The Celtics find...
Rondo got robbed of an assist when Garnett got hit.
Rajon Rondo's spectacular streak of 30 games with 10+ assists has led me to keep a very close eye on his ball distribution of late. As he continues to climb his way up the charts towards the all-time record, I watch each game intently keeping track of his assist count.
While at the Garden last Wednesday I noticed three...
As a die hard fan and Boston Celtics season ticket holder, I’m very interested in Rajon Rondo’s streak of consecutive games with 10 or more assists, which now stands at 29 (tied for 3rd longest in NBA history). While sitting in the Garden Wednesday night and paying very close attention to Rondo’s assist count, I had an epiphany of sorts.
There were at least 3 or 4 plays...
BOSTON — Once upon a time, Doug Collins was given three years to prove that he could (or could not) turn the Chicago Bulls into a championship-caliber club. Collins’ team featured a budding superstar in Michael Jordan, a young enforcer in Charles Oakley and would eventually have promising rookies Horace Grant and Scottie Pippen to build around.
Most fans know how Collins’ tenure...

Another game, more complaints about the refs. Since every single fan base complains about calls, including the Celtics, I can only conclude that the refs are terrible all the way around. The usual talk about Pierce being a drama queen and the Celtics illegal screens. Enjoy today's Comments from the Other Side...

The Celtics trail the 76ers at the half 57-45 as the Sixers perimeter players combined for 34 points with 8 assists for Jrue Holiday. Spencer Hawes had some nice second chance baskets late in the second quarter and shut KG out of the paint for most of the half. Despite his legendary headband-mullter combination, Hawes [...]
