I buried the Celtics in a fancy casket following a 118-96 loss last month. It was the first time we hit rock bottom this season. The mediocre Isaish Thomas torched the defenseless Celtics for 27 points and DeMarcus Cousins dropped at triple-double. On the bright side, the...
BEST OF MAXIM
A torn ACL is a death sentence to any athlete. When a star in the league suffers that gruesome injury, all you can do is feel for them. It is a helpless feeling being that player, especially when they believe it is only a minor injury. That was the case for Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo, after he thought he had only hyperextended his knee during Boston’s double overtime loss...
My exact face when I found out Rajon Rondo was out for the season.
It is time my friends, time to say good-bye to this current Celtics group, and start to realize that the quest for 18 this season is over. Possibly, even out for a while.
After Rajon Rondo tore his Anterior Cruciate Ligament, I realized, we just aren't that good, and heck, we should have realized that after...
The Celtics scored one of their biggest wins of the season on Sunday, a double-overtime victory over the Miami Heat, but all talk in Boston since then has been about an even bigger loss.
All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo sought medical attention prior to Sunday’s game and was diagnosed with a torn ACL, bringing his season to an end. Now head coach Doc Rivers is faced with a tough...
The Boston Celtics return to practice Tuesday without All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo.
He's out for the season with a right knee injury that requires surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Coach Doc Rivers must decide who will bring the ball upcourt from a group that includes Courtney Lee, Jason Terry and Leandro Barbosa.
The Celtics had Monday off after their...
The Celtics are now 2-0 since losing Rajon Rondo for the season with an ACL tear in his right knee. A vocal minority have speculated that perhaps this team might be better off without the services of the All-Star point guard, a notion the coach dismissed quickly on Thursday.
“That’s silly,” Rivers said. “The bottom line is that you’d rather have him. But we...
Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers says he's not expecting his team to play point guard by committee.
Rivers says, ''It's just basketball by committee.''
The Celtics are trying to figure out how to replace point guard Rajon Rondo, who tore his ACL and will miss the rest of the season. Rivers says different players will bring the ball up, but little else will...
BOSTON — Kevin Garnett was trying to offer consolation. He wanted to calm everyone in the wake of the devastating news that Rajon Rondo would miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL in his right knee, and reassure anyone who would listen that the Celtics are not about to panic.
In doing so, however, he offered up imagery from one of the darkest eras of Celtics basketball. The...
Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez will replace injured Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo on the Eastern Conference roster for the All-Star Game, the league announced Wednesday. This will be Lopez's first All-Star Game, and he will be the only representative from the Nets, who are 27-18. Rondo was named an All-Star starter based on the fans' vote, but he is out for the rest...

Boston has always had a history of having at least one future hall-of-fame player on their roster. Now that Pierce and Garnett are at the end of their NBA career, the Celtics as a franchise are looking to remain relevant. The loss of Rajon Rondo makes it that much more difficult to see who on the roster will stand-up and say "I am a Celtic."
Following their longest losing streak in six seasons, the Boston Celtics are unbeaten since their star point guard went down.
The Orlando Magic, meanwhile, can't seem to stop their losing ways. Now they could be without two key starters.
The Celtics will try to get back to the .500 mark and win their third straight without Rajon Rondo on Friday night when they host the reeling...
