Two of the latest matchup winners featured two posterizations of franchise players as the opposition.  Avery Bradley’s ownage of Kevin Durant and Brandon Bass’ humiliation of Dwyane Wade in Game 7 both advanced quite easily to the sweet sixteen.  Today’s matchup features one of the few compilations, but it absolutely had to make it since it was huge at the time.  Paul Pierce took the Celtics on his back in Game 2 in the first round at Atlanta and tied the series at 1-1.  His play was clutch and it was his entire game, not a single play that did it.  Going against him is the man he was covering for in Game 2, due to a suspension: Rajon Rondo.  It was one of Rondo’s great passes of the season and it came against a team that usually gives them headahces, the Chicago Bulls. Seed #9: Pierce Takes Command of Game 2 at ATL and Kills the Hawks – The Celtics made a valiant comeback in Game 1 at Atlanta and had all the momentum in the end until Bass fought for a loose ball, trying to get a j

A silent but deadly offseason

The offseason was reminiscent of a storm brewing off a shoreline, that shoreline being the Boston harbor.  Danny Ainge was able to collect pieces that will have the Boston Celtics in a better position than last year.   This is remarkable considering last year’s team lost to the Miami Heat in seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals. Without diving into all the other noise...
