The Celtics don’t blow bad teams away.We know this by now. It has been the case since 2008 when the Hawks inexplicably took the Celtics to seven games in the first round of the playoffs. For whatever reason, whether it be motivation or something else, Boston just doesn’t blow out very many teams. Instead, they grind things out, lose a few games that they shouldn’t lose, and continue on their way.For the most part, as long as they win, this tendency doesn’t really matter. Tonight, for example, just two of the active players got less than 10 minutes, Leandro Barbosa and Jason Collins. Rajon Rondo played the most of any starter with 37. Pierce and Garnett both finished with 32. So it’s not like the starters are being forced to play a ton of minutes that they wouldn’t have to play in a blowout. It’s just a little annoying for the rest of us watching at home.So. Six in a row. The sixth may have been a bit underwhelming, but that’s fine. The Celtics are three games over .500 and inching f...

Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo has really, really big hands. That is the message received after watching the latest "This is SportsCenter" commercial. After holding a team meeting, the SportsCenter crew makes it a point to shake Rondo's hands as they leave. Anchor Steve Levy advises colleague John Anderson not to look down when he shakes Rondo's hands. He...
Rajon Rondo was a man on a mission last night as he powered the C's to a 100-89 win over the Bobcats with 17 points, 10 boards and 12 dimes - his third triple-double of the season and 26th of his career (including playoffs). Rondo's 26 triple-doubles ranks fourth among active players - behind only Jason Kidd (107), LeBron (41) and Grant Hill (29).
At the pace at which...
(h/t to WEEI’s Ben Rohrbach for the video)This was a typical Rondo post-game interview, with perhaps a little more sass, and there was certainly no smiling. It seems like he is constantly trying to make reporters uncomfortable in a long standing power struggle between players and the media. Mix some orneriness, with a dash of irritability, and sprinkle some justified and unjustified...

Carmelo Anthony said he was so hungry after his annual 15-day fast was ending Sunday that he was even ready to have a bowl of — you guessed it — Honey Nut Cheerios.
Just six days after Anthony got into it with Kevin Garnett — after the Celtics smack talker got under his skin by reportedly telling Melo, "Your wife tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios" during a Knicks-Celtics...
A Garden technician holds a sensitive mic at Sunday's game to eavesdrop on what Carmelo Anthony and is opponents say. James Dolan ordered two of them to be used at each game to avoid more "he said, he said" situations like the one that arose between Anthony and Kevin Garnett.
There has been a lot said about KG's trash talking since something he said to Carmelo...
New York Knicks owner James Dolan is one crazy guy. After Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett got in their heated on court argument, Anthony waited for Garnett at the team bus trying to straiten things out. Apparently Garnett said his wife La La “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios.” The verbal fight resulted in technical fouls against each player, and a suspension for Carmelo for...
Celtics forward Kevin Garnett got under Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony‘s skin last week when he allegedly said something about Anthony’s wife. According to unconfirmed reports, Garnett said Anthony’s wife, La La, tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios.
This obviously got Anthony heated, and it might not be why you might think. Anthony’s rage may actually be rooted in his hunger,...
