Celtics (26-7) vs. Spurs (17-16)
December 21, 1979
The Celtics continued their hot streak as they hosted the San Antonio Spurs on Friday night at the Garden. The C’s hit the glass, ran the break, and moved the ball exceptionally well in a lopsided 133-114 victory. The win marked the 27th victory for the Celtics, and improved their winning streak to seven games.
Larry Bird led the Celtics with 26 points and 14 rebounds. He added 6 assists as the C’s cruised past George Gervin’s Spurs despite the Ice Man’s 36 point performance. Bird improved to 2-1 against Gervin and the depth of the Green Team proved too much as at least nine Celtics scored eight or more points.
The Celtics held the team Christmas party the day before the game with the Spurs. Afterward, the C’s prepared to depart for a six game, two week road trip that wouldn’t have Boston back at the Garden until January 9.
“To me,” Tiny Archibald said in the preview of the Spurs game to the Globe’s Larry Whitesi...

Fab Melo Blocks 14 Shots for Red Claws Boston Celtics rookie center Fab Melo, who was selected with the 22nd overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, broke an NBA Developmental League record Saturday night by tallying 14 blocks in a single game. Melo also scored 15 points and grabbed 16 rebounds, completing a [...]
Doc Rivers gave Chris Forsberg & the rest of the media the bad news at today’s practice in Waltham:
Wilcox hurt the thumb in Tuesday’s game vs the Bulls. It’s being called an “ulnar collateral sprain” of his right thumb. Doc says he’s been told Wilcox should be out somewhere from 3 to 4 weeks. Obviously this is not good for a team that is already struggling with...

Rajon Rondo spent the early part of this season stalking Magic Johnson‘s record of 46 straight games with double-digit assists. Rondo took the streak so seriously he allowed himself to be kept in the game into the final minute of a loss in Detroit just to notch that decisive 10th assist to keep his run alive.
Rondo’s streak eventually ended at 37 games, which tied John Stockton...
I know it's part of the NBA collective bargaining agreement for players to do a lot of this charity stuff, but I still love seeing it. Nice to see this side of Kevin Garnett as well.
Celtics' center had his best game as a pro, putting up a monster triple double of 15 points, 16 rebounds and 14 blocks to earn him Player of the Game honors. But it wasn't enough as the Red Claws (7-4) lost to the Bayhawks (6-4) 85-78. Fab's triple double is just the 3rd in Red Claws history and his 14 blocks set a new D-League record.
Fellow Celtic, Kris Joseph...
As NESN Daily‘s Jamison Coyle points out, if the Milwaukee Bucks played the Celtics 82 times, they’d be NBA champions.
Fortunately for Boston that’s not how the league works. The Bucks definitely have the Celtics’ number, however, beating them for the third time on the season Friday. Paul Pierce was the lone bright spot for Boston, going for 35 points in the overtime loss...
Despite another huge game from Paul Pierce, the C’s could not put away the Bucks last night. Milwaukee wins the season series 3-1 after their 99-94 win.
The Celtics are off until Christmas Day when they have a rematch with the Brooklyn Nets. Tip-off is at Noon EST. Here are some pics & GIFs via HoopChina from last night’s game. Also added some KG singing/playing Connect Four...
