Celtics (17-4) vs. Pacers (11-15) Saturday, December 1 Market Square Arena Regardless of a pedestrian record, playing the Pacers in Market Square Arena was a tough spot for the Celtics to win.  Unlike their date in October, Larry Bird made sure this homecoming to Indiana ended on a more successful note.  The Celtics defeated Indiana in overtime, 106-102, to win their sixth straight game and remain top the Eastern Conference standings.  This game was the first time the Celts had played in OT this season. Bird chipped in a double-double with 13 boards and 15 points with 6-of-16 shooting, and unlike the game the prior night, worked his way to the free throw line and hit 75% of his attempts.  Cedric Maxwell enjoyed a sensational night.  He dominated the low post with 19 points and 17 rebounds just one night after attempting only three field goals.  Maxwell consistently sacrificed his offensive output as soon as Bird arrived in Boston, but he still had the capability to take over games w...

The positives to the Rajon Rondo suspension

Rajon Rondo will miss the next two games while serving a suspension Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo was suspended by the NBA on Thursday for his role in an altercation in Wednesday night’s game against the Brooklyn Nets.

Rondo is still a good basketball player

Rondo’s ‘determined to show I can become a leader’ campaign took a hit in many people’s eyes when he lost his composure in the game on Wednesday against the Nets.  I do not see it that way, as he showed he can become the emotional leader once the days of Kevin Garnett are over.  Sure he was short fused, but he also displayed unrivaled support for his teammates.  There...

A Few Random Thoughts on Celtics/Nets Fight

First of all this sets up a pretty heated Christmas Day game right off the bat. It should get some good ratings. You have to wonder if the league wanted to set up a rivalry between these two teams for ratings purposes. Yes, I know I'm getting into tinfoil hat areas here, but I can't help but wonder.  In the first outing between the Celtics and the Nets,  Keith Bogans...
