*** Crawford. Kennedy. Willard. Davis. Their names strike fear in the hearts of all Celtics fans. No they are not members of the Miami Heat (not officially anyways, pardon the pun) but they are members of the Evil Axis of Officials. Their reputations are synonymous with ineptitude, narcissism, bias, bullying, and flat out ridiculousness [...]

Doc Rivers has, from time to time, shown he's not entirely fond of last year's Celtics team. He'll tell you flat out that last year's team was more talented than this one, but this one actually plays together.
Today, less than a day removed from a tough, gritty win to even up the Eastern Conference Finals at two games each, he brought it up again.
Chris Bosh could be back with the Miami Heart for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals.
Unless Bosh suffers a setback in workouts leading up Tuesday night's game against the Boston Celtics, the Heat hope to activate the All-Star, ESPN.com reported.
Bosh has missed nine playoff games since he suffered an abdominal strain in the opener of an Eastern Conference semifinal series...
B-Paul and Nick Gelso will return to the mic this evening for a condensed Celtics Late Night Show. The show will be at a special start time of 6 pm, EST and will be a 60 minute broadcast. The guys will be breaking down the Eastern Conference Finals, taking a look at Rajon Rondo’s historic [...]
Earlier I posted the 1981 World Champion Celtics Locker Room Celebration video that I found earlier this week. Where did I find it? I was tipped off that Robert Parish was auctioning off his 1981 championship ring and the video was on the auction page. The auction has now ended and the ring has sold for $45,478. The ring came with a letter of authenticity signed by Robert Parish...
The Celtics responded from a tough Game 2 loss on the road with a scintillating Game 3 win at home to make it a 2-1 series. There were several fantastic plays and moments from the game. Check out the highlights below for some of them:
Haslem gets Rondo'd
Rondo's No-look Pass to Quis:
Pierce's End of Q3 Three
Ray's Fourth Quarter...
No need for much lead up commentary as these are just children, so just watch and listen: Jalen Smith, 9, took full advantage at the poor defensive stance of 7-year old LeBron James, Jr. Even though they’re just kids, that had to be the highlight of Jalen’s young basketball career. Not to mention Jalen already [...]
I don’t have much time at all to write about that win that was alternately brilliant, frustrating and brilliant again, but check out my column for the Springfield Republican newspaper.
Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh has sat out for the Heat with an injury since the series against the Indiana Pacers, but his face looks to be game ready. Sitting on the bench during the Heat’s loss to the Celtics, the television cameras capture Bosh giving his face a good stretch. He smoothly transitions from...Read the Rest...
For the Miami Heat, it was a chance to take the series back to Miami with a 3-1 lead. For the Boston Celtics, it was the perfect opportunity to get even. Rajon Rondo scored 15 points and added 15 assists, including three points in overtime, to propel the Celtics to a 93-91 win and even the Eastern Conference Finals to two games each.
One gets the feeling Rajon Rondo uses controversy like most use caffeine. He hears trade rumors and becomes a triple-double machine. Craig Sager asks him an innocent question about how the Celtics can handle rest and Rondo responds as if Sager just called his daughter ugly. Doris Burke asks him about Boston’s unexpected scoring binge and Rondo uses it as an excuse to call the...
Three reasons the Celtics won this game:
Grit and balls.
Balls and grit.
Grit and balls.
What did I tell you all before the game via Twitter? Joey Crawford is the only ref with the balls to take on LeBron Wade and Dwyane Wade. And Joey delivered with the 6th whistle on James.
Now excuse me while I restart my heart.

It was Sunday, April 29 that the media restarted their "too old, too slow" routine about the Celtics. Boston lost Game 1 of the Eastern Conference First Round by a score of 83-74, and everyone was ready to count out Boston yet again. The C's have come to expect these comments ever since their deep playoff run in 2010. That year, the Celtics played the Cavs in the Semis...
The Boston Celtics went into Game 4 Sunday night trailing in the series 2-1, but with the game at home there was a lot on their side. Coming off a big win Friday Night against the Miami Heat to keep from being swept, the Celtics charged into Game 4 on a tear, staying in the lead for the majority of the game. After the half though is when the Heat started to close the gap eventually...
When Keyon Dooling hit his second consecutive three pointer (yes, you read that right) with 9:45 to go in the 2nd quarter last night, Boston led 45-28. The Celtics had scored 45 points in just over 14 minutes of game time. In the remaining 39 minutes, they would score just 48 points. In fact, the C’s scored more in the 1st quarter (34), than they did in the second half and...
Things haven’t gotten better for Wade against the Boston Celtics because they have been quick to send double-teams his way without the threat of Chris Bosh to keep them honest. The result is Wade is only averaging 21.0 points while seeing his shooting percentage steadily decline in each game so far this series.
