In one of the few games I’ve missed this season, the Celtics beat the Hawks, 89-81, earlier this month. Paul Pierce scored 17 of his 26 points in the 3rd quarter as the Celtics fought back from a 15-point halftime deficit.
Get it to: Kevin Garnett
He rebounded well against the Knicks, but managed ju...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
I did a little writing for The Classical series “Why We Watch,” focusing on Paul Pierce’s years of faking us all out. Here’s a little bit of it:
Your eyes tell you that Pierce is not doing those things. Even as he backpedals and blows kisses to the Madison Square Garden crowd after yet another masterful one-man Broadway show, your eyes tell you he’s not shooting as well...
Eastern Conference All-Star reserves: Chris Boshtrich, Tyson Chandler, Joakim Noah, Paul George, Luol Deng, Jrue Holiday, and Kyrie Irving will join Rondo, Wade, 'Melo, LeBron and KG who were voted as starters. I think many of us knew this was a distinct possibility. The Celtics record isn't really worthy of having 3 all-stars. That said, Paul Pierce's numbers are remarkably...
via Boston Globe :
Paul Pierce reacted to warnings by coach Doc Rivers that roster changes will be imminent if the Celtics do not play better. Pierce said they are straying from the game plan, and that the Celtics are not at the correct mental state.
It was difficult for Paul Pierce to admit, but with his team having a 20-21 record and four straight losses, he had to.
After losing their fifth straight against the New York Knicks, Rajon Ronsdo said an interesting thing in his post game interview, "Paul Pierce can't be the only one drawing fouls." Paul Pierce is considered to be Mr. Celtic; the lone active Celtic player to have more than a fleeting memory of Red Auerbach. Pierce cut his NBA teeth in the tradition of what it means...
If you haven’t heard about the incident between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett when the Knicks played the Celtics at the Garden on January 7th, which led to Melo getting suspended for a game, then I’m not too sure where you’ve been. After Melo and Garnett were playing very rough against each other all game, including picking up a double technical, Melo went screaming towards...
The Celtics are all to familiar with
the emotions of "a day at the park"
Being a Celtics fan for a season is almost like going to Six Flags, or any other amusement park, for the day. The anticipation to get there is unbearable and all you can do is sit and think about the possible outcomes of a day at the park. You finally get there and reality hits you, theres a lot of...
Well, that wasn't fun. It's becoming clear that the bench is finally coming around but now the starters are slumping. The second unit gave us that big lead in the second quarter and then it went away when the starters came back in. But there's progress. We at least got one great half of basketball. One thing that always strikes me is all the complaints...
The last time the Celtics and Knicks met, it was Kevin Garnett who may have needed some personal protection from Carmelo Anthony. This time, the New York star is ensuring his own safety.
Anthony will bring his own bodyguard with him for Thursday’s matchup at the TD Garden, according to the New York Daily News. The reasoning Anthony’s employing the extra security detail is not...
BOSTON -- The first meeting between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett since their nasty encounter on Jan. 7 in New York turned into just another night of misery for the floundering Celtics. Anthony, suspended for a game for going out to the Boston bus after Garnett's alleged comments, scored 28 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead the New York Knicks to a 89-86 victory...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Josh Smith had 30 points and 13 rebounds, and the Atlanta Hawks snapped a six-game road losing streak with a 104-92 win Wednesday night over the Charlotte Bobcats.
Kyle Korver added 21 points on 5-of-6 shooting from beyond the 3-point arc as the Hawks sent the Bobcats to their 16th straight home loss, three shy of the NBA record.
Smith finished two assists...
The Celtics clawed their way back from a 10-point deficit in the 4th quarter only to fumble the ball out of bounds on two critical possessions late in the game. It was those mental mistakes, courtesy Jason Terry and Paul Pierce, that cost them a chance at victory over the Knicks. The final score: NY 89 Bos 86.
The reason behind tonight’s loss was the shooting. The Celtics...
Thursday night is the first time Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks will see Kevin Garnett and the Boston Celtics since KG’s infamous “Cheerios” comments during their game at Madison Square Garden on January 7th. This time the game is in Boston, and despite Anthony and Garnett’s claims of their beef being resolved, Melo still isn’t taking chances with Celtics’ fans. That...
For the last year or so, I’ve used “Fan Friday” to highlight Boston Celtics fans from all over the world. I wanted to step it up a notch this season and bring our readers fan profiles from the world of entertainment, music and professional sports. Well, I’m proud to bring you all the first installment of “Celebrity Fan Friday”!
Once a month, we’ll interview and profile...
As we all know Tyson Chandler deserved to be the starting Center in the All-Star game representing the Eastern Conference.. Kevin Garnett took that spot when the fans voted and he was announced as the starter in the East. Tyson Chandler’s numbers were substantially better than Kevin Garnett’s, but the fans still voted other wise. Although Tyson wasn’t selected to start, his...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Josh Smith had 30 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists, and Kyle Korver scored 21 as the injury-decimated Atlanta Hawks beat the Charlotte Bobcats 104-92 on Wednesday night. The Hawks snapped a six-game road losing streak with the victory, and extended the Bobcats' homecourt losing streak to a franchise-record 16 straight. Atlanta, 24-18, had lost eight...
