Celtics (54-17) vs. Hawks (44-28) March 14, 1980 Omni Coliseum A difficult stretch continued for the Boston Celtics.  With the season nearly 90 percent complete, the Celtics struggled to hold onto the lead in the Atlantic Division, dropping three of the past four games, including this affair in Atlanta, 88-87. Indiana did a favor for the Celtics, knocking off Philadelphia, so the Green Team remained one game in front of the 76ers.  The C’s lost this non-televised game (heard locally on WBZ) despite 23 points from Larry Bird, a 14/16 night from Cedric Maxwell, and a 13/11 performance from Rick Robey.  As well as the frontline played, the Celtic guards struggled to find any consistency, and that included the return of Nate Archibald.  The Celtics committed 20 turnovers to just 12 assists, a ratio they rarely encountered throughout the season.  Dave Cowens, rounding into post-season form, finished with 13 points and 8 rebounds, but Gerald Henderson — coming off his most impressive ga...

Green Envy: What Bobcats fans said - 3/16

In the process of writing this post, I was disgusted with the confidence the fans of the Charlotte Bobkitties came into the game with. Sure, they won a couple games against the Celtics, but for a team that bad to assume they would win? Horrendous. Thankfully the Celtics shut them up by destroying their vastly inferior squad. And to think I came into today feeling sorry for Charlotte...
