BOSTON – Despite a mediocre 38.1-percent from the field, the Boston Celtics lead the Philadelphia 76ers 38-36 at the half in game two of the second round of the NBA Playoffs. Rajon Rondo continues to move the ball at a torrid pace with eight assists in 19 minutes, including a thunderous alley-oop to Ryan Hollins [...]

Rondo's triple double carries Boston past the 76ers, 92-91 to win game one

If you thought this game was going to be a walk in the park for either side, then you clearly didn't read what I wrote this morning.  Boston had to use the fourth quarter to overcome losing game one, giving up home court advantage.  Lucky for the Celtics, Rajon Rondo had a triple double while Kevin Garnett had 29 points and 11 rebounds. Philadelphia controlled the first...

Recap: Celtics rip the hearts out of the Sixers

  I need a cigarette after the fourth quarter performance by the Boston Celtics.  I don't even know where to start.   Ok, I'll start with KG, the destroyer of men's souls.  29 points on 12-20 shooting, 11 rebounds, and 3 blocks.  And if you thought Hawks Game 6 was a "turn back the clock performance," then this was full on Delorean...

Game 1: Celtics/76ers postgame interviews

Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, and Doc Rivers interviews after the jump.

Jrue Holiday Counters Rajon Rondo's Strong Play, Continues to Grow Into Role as Sixers' Floor General

BOSTON -- Clad in an understated cardigan sweater, without a pair of thick-rimmed glasses or a flashy button-up shirt in sight, Jrue Holiday appeared to be no threat to Rajon Rondo's "Swag" nickname or Clippers guard Nick Young's well-earned reputation for sartorial showiness. Craig Sager, he is not. Holiday had just finished scoring the most points and hitting...

Celtics 92, Sixers 91: Boston uses fourth-quarter rally to open series right

The small fourth-quarter lineup worked wonders, scoring on Avery Bradley is harder than turning down a free pack of Starbursts, and Rajon Rondo is better than you even on his so-so days, especially when he decides to hit the turbo button in the fourth quarter. This Celtics team is all kinds of interesting and weird and awesome and ragged and weird and tough and frustrating and...

Sixers Look To Even The Series

The Sixers lost a tight one on Saturday night, 92-91.  In the series opener, the Celtics used their experience and took game one.  Tonight, the Sixers look to even up the series and take it back to Philadelphia.  Besides the Celtics "Big three", the Sixers really need to worry about Rajon Rondo.  Rondo only had 13 points, but the way he controlled the game was down...

Celtics Come From Behind to Beat Sixers in Game 1 of Second Round in NBA Playoffs

The Celtics spent most of the opening game of their second-round matchup with the Sixers looking like they were going to get run out of the TD Garden, but Boston stood tough when it counted and won Game 1 at home. Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett were big down the stretch for the Celtics. In the West, the Lakers and Nuggets are also playing Saturday night, although they're still...

NBA Playoffs Preview – May 16, 2012

In Game 2, the Sixers won by one point, 82-81, led by Jrue Holliday’s 18 points. For Boston, Rajon Rondo and Paul Pierce had forgettable games, as both combined for 15 points on 21 shot attempts and 28% from the field. Will Boston be able to get back a game in Philadelphia, or will the Sixers continue their 2012 postseason aura?

KG is quite intense off the court as well

The Boston Celtics are in the Eastern Conference Semifinals and are up 1-0 in the series against the Philadelphia 76ers. And while most of their playoff success may fall on the shoulders of Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett deserves much credit as well for getting Boston to this point. After shifting to the center position once Jermaine O'Neal left the team, his numbers improved and...

Comments from the other side - Sixers Game 1 5/12

First of all, happy Mother's Day to everyone who has a mother or who is a mother :)   Not sure who they hate more in this series,  KG or Lou Williams and Spencer Hawes.  Lots of hate for all 3.  Once again, it just blows my mind when they wish injury on players just because they play hard to beat them.   Tough loss for them for sure to get their hopes up all game and then...
