BEST OF MAXIM
Paul Pierce sprained his MCL in shootaround prior to Game 4 against the Atlanta Hawks and then scored 24 points in 17 minutes later that same night. I know I’m opening myself to a whole line of wheelchair retorts, but Pierce simply doesn’t feel pain like most humans. Jermaine O’Neal would have missed four full seasons with a sprained MCL.
Paul Pierce can say there’s nothing wrong with his knee all he wants, but he’s lying. He knows it, we know it and the 76ers know it. Doc Rivers knows it, too. That’s why he admitted the Boston Celtics’ offense needs to change. (Boston Globe)“Right now, he can’t get away from anybody, with his leg,” coach Doc Rivers said of Pierce. “Usually we don’t have to get...
Paul Pierce is playing despite a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee.
PHILADELPHIA -- The harder Rajon Rondo tried to get Brandon Bass involved in Game 2, the less effective the Celtics power forward seemed to be. Bass never really found his stroke in that game despite Rondo's efforts, shooting just 5-for-15 and watching the entire fourth quarter from the bench. So Rondo appeared to switch his strategy entirely in Game 3, driving to the hoop at...
Don't know what to say. Celtics gave this one away. Yes, the Sixers shot 36 free throws to 19 for the Celtics and at one time it was a 23-5 disparity. But The Celtics were up 18 points. They should be able to play through the officiating. They lost their killer instinct and backed off. The big stat is that the Celtics were outrebounded and the bench was outscored...
Rajon Rondo was once again the catalyst for the Celtics offense on Wednesday night, leading the C's to a big 107-91 victory over the 76ers. The tempo of the game was a big factor in the win, as was the defensive pressure that Rondo, Kevin Garnett and the rest of the Boston squad was able to push on Philadelphia. NESN's Jayme Parker caught up with Gary Washburn of the Boston...
Rajon Rondo took responsibility for allowing the Sixers to speed up the pace during their 15-2 third quarter run.
The Mavs are now on record as viewing Lamar Odom's contract as a 'very desireable' trade asset. That's the trigger for us to play 'Amateur GM' and to construct concepts featuring Josh Smith, Pau Gasol or Paul Pierce. What's pie-in-the-sky? What's 'very desireable'? Read on:
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
"After [Game 2] I came in and just said, ‘We’re not going to beat anybody -- JV teams or high school teams -- if we were not going to play together," Kevin Garnett said. "We’ve worked...
After two one-point games to begin their Eastern Conference semifinal series, the Celtics blew out the 76ers 107-91 Wednesday night in Philadelphia to take a 2-1 series lead. The Celtics used a 22-6 run in the second quarter to run away from the young Sixers team. Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo combined to score 74 of the 107 points. Garnett led the team with a game-high...
The Sixers want this series. After the disappointment that was game one, where the Sixers outperformed the much more experienced Celtic squad for the bulk of the game in Boston but ultimately still came up short, many expected the young team to come out shattered and shaken in game two, and all but give the series to the guys in green. Instead they did the exact opposite and battled...
Tom Thibodeau would certainly love to be watching game film on the Boston Celtics right now, preparing for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. But Derrick Rose tore his ACL, Joakim Noah badly sprained his ankle, Carlos Boozer picked the wrong time to have his Carlos Boozer Annual Playoff Disappearance, and the Philadelphia 76ers dispatched the Bulls in six games, leaving...
Many times after basketball games conclude, we prescribe emotions to a team or player just because of the results. When the Los Angeles Lakers came back to defeat the Boston Celtics in Game 7 two seasons ago, we described Kobe Bryant as indomitable because he rebounded a heap of misses and the Lakers prevailed. Partially, our description was true. Bryant surely wanted that game...
