Paul Pierce downplays injury, admits he was a step slow

Paul Pierce ran like every step sent a lightning bolt of pain down his leg. He always plays methodically, often with a pace that rivals a middle-aged man going for a midday jog. But yesterday he was clearly bothered by an injury he suffered during a Game 4 pregame shootaround.Afterward, Pierce shrugged off the injury but admitted to playing a step slow. (Boston Herald)“I don’t...

Celtics vs Hawks game four recap via team blogs

We dropped the ball again at posting up a recap in time so we borrowed one from my favorite Celtics website, Celticslife. This post comes from Karl Dillinger in a good ole fashioned live blog format. I must warn you, it is written from a Celtics fan by a Celtics fan. The Post: Celtics beat down Hawks 101-79 (live blog) This was the best I've seen the Celtics shoot...

GreenLights: Celtics vs Hawks (Game 4 2012 ECQF)

In a pivotal Game 4, the Celtics looked to defend their home court and did they ever.  The C's looked locked in on defense and loaded up on offense right from the opening tap.  Save for extended fourth quarter garbage time, the Celtics issued a wire-to-wire beating of the Atlanta Hawks to take a 3-1 series lead.  Paul Pierce torched the Hawks from the outside and Rajon Rondo...

Metta World Peace Talks About Elbowing James Harden, Pulling Down Paul Pierce's Shorts on 'Conan' (Video)

The topics Metta World Peace covered during Conan on Monday night were as widespread as his assaulting arms. The Lakers forward appeared on Conan O'Brien's late-night show after canceling an earlier appearance. World Peace spent a few minutes talking about the time he yanked down Paul Pierce's shorts during a game, saying it was the only way to guard the Celtics star...

10.9 Comments for the Final 10.9 Seconds in Atlanta

With just over ten seconds on the clock and the Boston Celtics trailing by one; Atlanta Hawks forward, Josh Smith searched the court for a teammate to inbound the ball to... 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...

Rajon Rondo freaks out at cameraman after game five loss (Video)

Is there really any reason to worry?

I'll admit that I've felt a little bit bummed out all morning about last night's loss. The Celtics had the Hawks on the ropes, and they had chance after chance to put the game, and the series, away last night. If Pierce makes his last shot attempt, the Celtics probably win. If Rondo goes up the middle after his steal, the Celtics might've won. Also, why the hell did...

Monday Afternoon Links, Featuring Kevin Garnett

The Basketball Jones: Kevin Garnett, without cursing, compares playing for the Celtics to baking a cake.  I bet Kevin bakes with a frightening intensity, and I feel bad for any family member daring enough to say “I’m full” when offered a portion of one of his fine desserts. Pro Basketball Talk: You’ll be happy to know that Lamar Odom won’t get any of the two-hundred-some...

Behind the scenes with "Larry Bird" at Magic/Bird on Broadway

There's no doubt you've heard about the Magic/Bird production on Broadway.  I've gotten a chance to see the show (which I reviewed here), and earlier this week, I got a chance to go behind the scenes and talk to the man who transforms every night into Larry Bird.  Tug Coker (@TugCoker on Twitter), is an actual, honest to goodness Celtics fan who grew up watching the...

Eye on the enemy, where Joe Johnson wants more touches

With the Boston Celtics trying to wrap up their series with the Atlanta Hawks we'll be keeping a closer look on the Hawks to see what they're up to. Johnson took just eight shots in Sunday’s 101-79 loss to the Celtics, who are up 3-1 in the best-of-seven series heading into Game 5 Tuesday at Philips Arena. “I don’t think they are doing anything different defensively...
