The Celtics didn't close the deal in Atlanta, but they likely won't be denied on the parquet as their first-round series with the Hawks comes back to Boston for Game 6. Steve Pagliuca, co-owner and managing general partner of the Celtics, will be on The Dennis and Callahan Show on Thursday morning to talk about the matchup. ESPN NBA analyst Jon Barry will also be on the show. Barry played in the NBA for 15 seasons with eight different teams. Dennis and Callahan will also talk about recent reports of Josh Beckett playing golf and the sudden death of Fenway...

We spent the last two or three months of the regular season learning how Greg Stiemsma can impact a game, how he blocks a lot of shots and normally plays proper positional defense, how his rebounding and defensive low-post position have improved quite a bit since the Celtics’ season-opener on Christmas Day, how he occasionally hits jumpers because he weirdly possesses a nice...
It’s always good when the full stable of horses is healthy, but in this case it’s especially heart-warming to know that:A) Paul Pierce’s “I tripped and wiped out while dribbling during shootaround” does not have to enter the pantheon of weird injuries next to Derrick Rose’s “I rolled over while eating an apple and landed on a knife.”B) Ray Allen’s ankle continues...

This is the first specific detail we've heard about Pierce's injury. The MCL is pretty important to your lateral movement, and there were plenty of times after Pierce tweaked it again in Game 5 that it was obvious Pierce wasn't moving from side...

1. The Celtics have no time outs left with ten seconds on the clock. If Doc Rivers is playing for the steal, he should have his best catch-and-shoot player, scratch that, the league's best catch-and...
BOSTON-After dousing the Hawks thoughts of forcing a Game 7 on their home court, Kevin Garnett responded to another situation at his post-game media conference.
If you will recall Hawks owner Michael Gearon Jr. said that Garnett is “dirtiest guy in the league.
Those comments proved to be the ultimate locker room bulletin board material as it fueled Garnett’s performance.
This game was very strange. A pure dog fight until the very end. The Hawks were up big while giving up the lead entirely in the last two minutes of the 3rd, setting up one physical fourth quarter. Atlanta was able to secure the victory after basically trying to throw the game away literally. Well don't take my word for it, watch below.

I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Atlanta.
Kevin Garnett scares me. Garnett's intensity, as scary and as disturbing as it is, isn't the scariest part. It's that it seems like he can get anything he wants against the Hawks...

Kevin Garnett, the dirtiest guy in the NBA? That is what the Atlanta Hawks owner claims. Maybe the next time he opened his mouth to cast insults, his team will be able to go out and back up his bug mouth. Garnett used the insults to add injury to the Atlanta Hawks. The Boston Celtics closed out the series against Atlanta with a 83-80 win last night. Garnett went on to thank the Atlanta...
The Celtics are on the brink of eliminating the Atlanta Hawks from the playoffs so, unsurprisingly, C's fans are pretty optimistic about the team's chances. With three tries at closing out Atlanta before turning their attention to the Chicago-Philadelphia winner, Doc Rivers and the Celtics will have their work cut out for them against a team with its back against the wall...
