Celtics (56-18) vs. Indiana (34-41) March 18, 1980 Hartford Civic Center In the midst of legal battles with the Boston Garden, the Celtics returned “home” after a three-game road to the friendly confines of the Hartford Civic Center.  After a career that made stops across Beaver County, Pennsylvania all the way to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, it really didn’t matter where he played: the only true home for Pete Maravich was the hardwood floor of a basketball court.  Buoyed by a vintage 31-point performance from Pistol Pete, the Celtics avenged a loss from eight days prior and defeated the Indiana Pacers, 114-102. Those familiar with seeing Larry Bird’s name as one of the top two scorers for the Celtics will be suprised to know he didn’t even finish in the top three.  Maraich led all scorers with 31, followed by M.L. Carr with 23 points and 9 boards, and Tiny Archibald scored 15 points and contributed 7 assists.  The versatile Carr started in place of Cedric Maxwell, who was out with an a...

Your Morning Dump… where Danny loves the Bradley-Rondo backcourt

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Floated that scenario [about trading Rondo] during a call to Boston sports radio WBZ-FM (98.5 the SportsHub), Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge brushed off the suggestion while stressing how...

Jason Terry selling Mercer Island mansion for $2.5 million (PICS)

Jason Terry thinks so highly of his Seattle, Washington roots that he has his old area code, 206, tattooed on his chest.  But the roots aren’t deep enough to where Terry feels the need to keep a home in the Seattle area. Terry earns his paychecks in Boston these days.  And even though his net worth is roughly $25 million (I’m skepitcal it isn’t more), he doesn’t need houses...

Shane Battier Takes Advantage of Paul Pierce’s Backside a Second Time to Inbound Ball (Video)

Paul Pierce is famously difficult to move off his spot, whether he’s playing defense or creating space to get a shot up for himself. But at least one defender has found a way to turn Pierce’s positioning in his favor. Shane Battier iced Miami’s 105-103 victory over the Celtics with a clever inbounds play Monday night. Looking to get the ball in, he saw Pierce’s trenchant...

Why the Celtics Can Beat the Heat

If I were to ask you at the beginning of the year, if the Celtics could beat the Heat without Rajon Rondo or Kevin Garnett, I am certain that most of you would say no. These are two fundamental players that drive this team and without them, it would be difficult to beat the best of the best. Yet, this past Monday, the Celtics came three points away of ending the Miami Heat’s historical...

They'll try to keep up their winning ways against a Milwaukee Bucks team they could wind up seeing when they open the postseason.

Fans, media remain fascinated with big dunks over small guys

By most accounts, LeBron James is 6-8, 270 lbs. Jason Terry is a modest 6-2, 180 lbs. I would expect James to dunk over Terry 100 out of 100 times. So… why the hell is the NBA blogosphere still buzzing about James’ dunk from last night? I thought we saw the end of this silliness when Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski lauded Brandon Knight for challenging this DeAndre Jordan highlight...
