BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Paul Pierce hasn't had the best of weeks. It took overtime for the Celtics to beat the Magic and then they got embarrassed by the Nets. Pierce has looked his age in the past couple of games, especially on defense. First, there was Jameer Nelson
And then there was Joe Johnson
Here's hoping the Captain gets his mojo back. This is getting painful to watch.
Paul Pierce is one of the greatest players to ever put on a Boston Celtics uniform. He may not be as legendary as greats like Larry Bird or Bill Russell, but he did win an NBA championship and has been with the team since he got into the league in 98′. Despite his success, Pierce has had some low moments as well ,and by low I meaning falling on the ground cause you just got...
We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Milwaukee.
Daniels played tough defense all night on Paul Pierce all game and gave the Bucks god versatility against the Pierce/Terry pick and roll late. He offers preciously little on the other end, but he knows his limitations...
Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry all had the day off from practice today. Leandro Barbosa was also not present due to illness.about 1 hour ago via TwitterrificReplyRetweetFavorite@celticsBoston CelticsThe Celtics don’t play until Wednesday’s tilt with Garnett’s alma mater, so applaud Doc for a good decision. No reason to make the elderly folks run unnecessarily, especially...
Rondo may be the assist king of the Celtics but it's Paul Pierce (#9) and KG (#4) that show up in this week's Top 10 Assists of the Week.

Anytime I log on to Twitter, it’s not long until ” #TeamCeltics ” comes across my timeline. That’s because I follow a young die-hard from NYC who goes by the Twitter handle @NyPDCeltics_34. His real name is Richard F. Richard is a 17 year old student from Brooklyn, NY who reps the Boston Celtics to the fullest. And as you can imagine, being a Boston Celtics fan in NYC is...
Last week, we saw some pretty sweet kicks rocked by the Boston Celtics. IamJeffreyJason has put the spotlight on a few of them for another feature. We see Rajon Rondo in the Air Jordan “Cool Grey” IX, Paul Pierce in his Nike “Air Legacy 3″ and more. Be sure to check out I.A.J.J.’s new feature, “Is it the shoes?”
I’ll admit it. I really thought the Celtics were going to run away with this game.It was foolish, I know. I mean, why would I think that this team could hold a 17-0 lead? Stupid, stupid. I should have known that Milwaukee would come back, because, you know, the Celtics. The only question would be whether or not Boston could hold off Milwaukee’s comeback. They could not, as it...
8 a.m. ET: In all likelihood, no team wants to get back on the court more than the Portland Trail Blazers.
The Blazers became the first team to fall to the Washington Wizards this season when they dropped an 84-82 decision to Nene and company on Wednesday. Once a regular playoff participant, the Blazers have missed out on the postseason the last two years and are off to a disappointing...
Kevin Garnett, Doc Rivers, and Paul Pierce meet the press following the Celtics big win vs the Blazers.

The Celtics barely missed Rondo as they routed the Trailblazers 96-78. Strong performances by Jeff Green, Jason Terry, Courtney Lee, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett gave Celtics fans hope that they can play without their floor general. Jared Weiss of CLNS Radio recaps the game in tonight’s edition of “Three at the Buzzer”. Filmed and [...]
ESPN Boston’s Chris Forsberg reports from Celtics practice in Waltham today:
WALTHAM, Mass. — Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers gave members of the 35+ club — Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Jason Terry — an extra day off and a respite from Monday’s practice, then tossed his clipboard to veteran assistant Armond Hill to run the skeleton session.
Leandro Barbosa also sat out...
MILWAUKEE -- Brandon Jennings' three-pointer with 24 seconds to play put Milwaukee head for good in a 91-88 victory over Boston on Saturday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Already shorthanded without key reserves Beno Udrih and Mike Dunleavy, Jr., Bucks coach Scott Skiles shook up his starting lineup, starting Epke Udoh and Marquis Daniels in place of Samuel Dalembert...
Basketball is one of the most eloquent, graceful and beautiful sports to watch. The way some players glide up and down the court or shoot a perfectly balanced jumpshot makes many fans appreciate the sport. Tonight the Celtics completely butchered that for the Blazers, something we've been waiting for and are happily welcoming. Some might light up when they see the Jeff Green...
MILWAUKEE -- Comebacks are starting to become second nature for the Milwaukee Bucks. Not even a week after rallying late from a 27-point deficit for a road victory in Chicago, the Bucks stormed back from a 17-0 deficit for a 91-88 victory over the Celtics Saturday at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee. Down one at the half, thanks to a 36-point second quarter, the Bucks...
