Celtics Showing J.R. Smith, Carmelo Anthony That Teamwork Will Win Out If Knicks Give Them Opening

What the Celtics have needed all season is to come together as a team, to move the ball and make the most of their talent, to not fall into ruts where other teams can feast on their weaknesses. For many stretches this year, the Celtics could not do that. Then, even after they discovered how to play in such a way after losing Rajon Rondo to a season-ending injury, they stumbled again...

Ticket to Game Six

With the clock ticking down and the Knicks climbing back into the game, Kevin Garnett showed a series of pump fakes, got airspace from Tyson Chandler, and made a deep two point jumper to put Boston ahead by seven with 48 seconds to go.

Underrated Stat of the Night - Game 5

Tonight's game 5 over the Knicks was probably this team's sweetest victory since game 5 of last year's conference finals. They went into a loud MSG filled with bandwagon fans and stuck-up players.

Jason Terry and David Ortiz are neighbors and yeah they've talked 2004

The Red Sox comeback against the Yankees in 2004 was one of the greatest, if not the greatest, sporting events I'd ever witnessed in person. Now, almost 10 years later, another Boston team is trying to do the same thing against New York. Can they do it? The odds are obviously extremely doubtful. On top of the fact that no NBA team has ever come back from an 0-3 deficit before...
