Small Lineup Works for Celtics, But Kevin Garnett Is Key As Always

WALTHAM, Mass. -- The playoffs are about storylines, and the facts usually have to be tweaked to fit into the narrative. That is why the story of the Celtics' victory over the Sixers in the last round was about the "Big Three" standing strong one final time, when it was really about two exceptional defenses and even though it is possible that Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen...

Are the Celtics or Thunder More Likely to Come Back and Win Their Playoff Series?

With the Celtics' victory over the Heat Friday night, and the Thunder's beatdown of the Spurs Thursday night, both Conference finals are headed into Game 4 at 2-1 with the momentum solidly on the side of the team losing the series. The Celtics looked completely overmatched in Game 1 of their series, losing by 14 and seemingly allowing the Heat to penetrate and score at will...

LeBron, Pierce can't escape past, each other

BOSTON When Dwyane Wade shook loose from Marquis Daniels, stepped back behind the 3-point line and launched a shot that would win the game for one team or the other Sunday, the basketball was not the only thing that hung in the air. If the entire TD Garden was on edge, nobody took a deeper metaphorical breath than LeBron James and Paul Pierce, spectators from their own benches...

Celtics 93, Heat 91: How does one describe that?

I don’t have much time at all to write about that win that was alternately brilliant, frustrating and brilliant again, but check out my column for the Springfield Republican newspaper.

It’s A Series!!!! Celtics Tie It Up At 2

The Celtics survive a Dwayne Wade missed three at the buzzer in overtime that would have won the game for the Heat and gave them a commanding 3-1 lead in series going back to Miami Tuesday night. Instead the Celtics have tied the series at 2 and have a chance to take back home court advantage in game 5 with a win on south beach tomorrow night. I agree with what Doc said that the...

QuickPoll: NBA.COM suddenly favors Boston Celtics to BEAT THE HEAT! What say you?

    Boston Celtics fans have seen the disrespect that the ESPN “experts” have given the C’s. Not one “expert” picked Boston when their Eastern Conference Finals match against the Miami Heat tipped off. Celtics’ Nation is used to such disrespect from the so-called “experts” as a poor pick from ESPN or TNT’s Sir Charles [...]

How did Celtics crank up KG to beat Heat?

Executing eight "knuckle" pushups on a parquetfloor really shouldn't be much of a challenge for a professional athlete. But for Kevin Garnett, this exercise interlude certainly seemed a bit moredifficult than dominating the low post in Game 3 of the Eastern Conferencefinals. KG, now working at center for the Boston Celtics, executed the aforementionedFriday night...

LeBron Likely To Spend More Time Defending Garnett In Game 4

Kevin Garnett is averaging a team-high 19.7 points against the Heat.

Assorted Observations: Eastern Conference Finals, Game Four

***Where’d Rajon Rondo disappear to in the second half?  Yes, I’m aware that he hit that big shot with three minutes to go in regulation, but he’d attempted just one between then and halftime.  Rondo could help the Celtics avoid their signature scoring droughts by continuously looking for his own offense, both in transition and in the half court. ***Mickael Pietrus collected...

Chris Bosh expected to return for Game 5

Prior to Game 4 in Boston, Erik Spoelstra remained adamant about the fact that the Heat have absolutely no timetable for the return of Chris Bosh. Bosh has been making progress and participating in on-court drills since the start of the series, but it appeared he still had some time to go on the road to recovery. Miami’s overtime loss to the Celtics in Game 4 may have accelerated...
