Celtics_allen_watches_360b
In some Wednesday night NBA action between the Milwaukee Bucks and Miami Heat, we saw a technical foul called that we had never witnessed before. Ray Allen was lining up to shoot a technical free throw for the Heat. Being a home game, the Heat fans were all quiet as Allen lined up for the shot. Then, with a move straight out of rec league basketball, a Bucks assistant coach dropped his clipboard right as Allen was about to shoot the ball. Pay attention to the top right corner of the video as you are watching. How did it work out for the coach? Ray Allen obviously nailed the free throw despite the “distraction”, but the coach didn’t receive any repercussions from the officials. A move like that should be an instant bench technical, so consider it a moral victory for the coach and a potential strategy moving forward in close games. The Bucks ended up losing 113-106 in overtime. No word yet if Brandon Jennings’ wild night at KOD Gentlemen’s Club effected his play. Filed under: Basketball

Ray Allen there for LeBron at the buzzer

MIAMI -- The Boston Celtics don't like the Miami Heat. Nevertheless, Ray Allen remembers the Celtics coming to LeBron James' defense last season. It was March 2 and the Heat were playing at Utah. James passed off in the waning seconds to Udonis Haslem, who missed a potential game-winning jumper. James got barbecued in the media for not taking the shot himself. "He...

Allen comes to Heat's rescue against Cavaliers

MIAMI -- Ray Allen stole the show -- again. Saturday night was the first time LeBron James played his former team as a reigning NBA champion.

Happy Thanksgiving!

We all have a lot to be thankful for on this day of turkey and cranberry.  Like how the team doesn't have Ray Allen's baggage (and poor defense) to contend with any more.  Or how we got the best point guard and best coach in the NBA on our side.  Or how we are simply not the Knicks, Lakers or Heat (even if they may have better records - we all still Bleed Green). What...

Irritating losses norm for progressing Cavs

If the Cavaliers are still losing games like this in February, well, then Ill be mad. OK, lets not kid ourselves. The Cavs 110-108 collapse at Miami on Saturday was indeed maddening. So was their four-point loss at Orlando the previous night. Thats two games in Florida, two losses, and by total of six points. And while were on the topic of numbers dont even get me started on...

Why the Celtics are Off to a Slow Start

Heading into this season the concern for the Boston Celtics was their offense. After losing the all-time three-point shooter, Ray Allen this summer, the C’s added perimeter scorers Jason Terry and Courtney Lee. But it’s not their offense. It’s their defense that has them that out to a slow start. Last year the Celtics were … Continue reading »

For Rivers, Another Reunion With The One That Never Was

If you thought the Ray Allen-Boston Celtics drama is tops on Doc Rivers' list on his worst negotiating failures, think again. Rivers still recalls as a “bigger failure” from 12 years ago to Rob Bradford from WEEI.com Green Street: “I lost a bigger one, and probably learned a lot of lessons from that. Tim Duncan in Orlando,” he said. “We never had him, but I...

Balanced Cavs Go Toe-to-Toe with Miami, Unravel Late

On a back-to-back, against the class of the NBA, without their star point guard, I wasn’t expecting much out of the Cavaliers last night in Miami. But, the Cavaliers gave viewers one of the most entertaining games of the season as they caught fire from behind the arc in the first half and had their most balanced scoring of the season with seven players reaching double figures....

The Cleveland Cavaliers Gave The Miami Heat More Than They Bargained For They Almost Pulled It Off

The Cleveland Cavaliers played the Miami heat and they gave the Heat a heck of a game. The Cavaliers led the game with just a minute left. Some thought this could be the Cavaliers night. Once again it was Anderson Varejao putting forth an effort Cleveland could be proud of, Varejao had 10 points, 15 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals. Varejao is playing all-star level basketball so...
