Game 6 didn't go the way Mickael Pietrus had hoped, but the Celtics' loss did little to rattle the happy-go-lucky veteran. That's because Pietrus is ready for Game 7, and as he put it, good things happen when you stay positive. So while it would have been easy for Pietrus to hang his head following the Heat's 98-79 victory on Thursday, he was more focused on turning the page. "Saturday is going to be a great day for us," Pietrus said. "We have to wake up with a big smile. It's what they call Game 7. Be excited about it....

The Basketball Gods smite Miami with block-to-3-pointer comeuppance

This play was all kinds of amazing in a very short time:   The block by Wade on the Bass dunk attempt?  Nasty?  Rondo recognizing in the span of less than two seconds, that Mickael Pietrus is in the corner and then slapping it to him while getting fouled (how big was THAT no-call??) was ridiculous.  Pietrus hitting the 3... well... that was probably just luck the way he was...

Doc Rivers: "We have one home game left"

CelticsLife participated in a conference call with Doc Rivers earlier today. Due to some technical issues we don't have a recording for you, however, here is the full transcript via ASAP Sports Q.

  That there is good ol' Mayah of Boston, Thomas M. "Mumbles" Menino, talking about two of the keys to the Celtics' success.... "KJ" and "Hondo" Yup...

Ray Allen: It would be hard to walk away from such a solid locker room

The Oklahoma City Thunder are already waiting where the Boston Celtics want to go. The NBA Finals isn’t the final destination the Celtics plugged into their GPS — no, they don’t want to stop after one more win against the Heat. But first they must make the Finals before they make any moves to claim the Larry O’Brien Trophy.If the Celtics do succeed against the Miami Heat...

The biggest difference between Doc Rivers and Erik Spoelstra

NBA coaching is about x’s and o’s, sure, but it’s also about psychology. It’s about encouraging a group of 15 players that the system works, and will work, even if it just failed. It’s about walking into a deflated locker room and becoming a dragon that breathes hope. It’s about walking into a joyous locker room and letting everyone know there’s still plenty more...

Game 6: Celtics/Heat postgame interviews

Boston mayor Tom Menino says ‘K.J.’ and ‘Hondo’ really drive the Celtics (Video)

Throughout history we have seen numerous examples of why sports and politics are better off remaining in their own domains. Barack Obama may know a thing or two about college basketball and be a big Chicago Bulls fan, but typically politicians have too much on their plate to pay close attention to sports. Either that, or it just doesn’t interest them. Whatever the...

As A Group, The Celtics Have Re-Opened The Window

When playoff time comes around here, this site tends to get a little “homery” if that’s a word. I dont think there’s anything wrong with that. One of the best things about sports is getting caught up in a great run by your favorite team. Well, the Celtics are on one hell of a run. Have they gotten a little lucky with Derek Rose going down and Bosh being dinged up? Sure. But...

Patience is a Heavenly Green Virtue

Athletic competition has become almost devoid of true patience. Basketball, in particular is generally a rampage of emotion and speed that can be quite overwhelming. Patience has become a lost art in the world of sports. It is the most important of the seven heavenly virtues. Patience is said to specifically oppose the vice of wrath. However, this is not something that is an exact...

Celtics Live Blog: Kevin Garnett, C's Go for Knockout Blow of Heat in Game 7 in Miami

Rajon Rondo's Tip Pass to Mickael Pietrus Could Be Most Important Play of Series Thus Far (Video)

Rajon Rondo has had much flashier passes in the Eastern Conference Finals, but a fourth-quarter tip to Mickael Pietrus in Game 5 is his most important assist of the series thus far. The Celtics built a five-point lead a couple of minutes into the final frame on Tuesday night, but the Heat came roaring back to seize the lead and briefly control of the game. That momentum only seemed...

Enemy Chatter: Wade kept Rondo away from the rim

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 Miami. "Certain shots hopefully I make that I missed. If not, I'll still make an impact on the game. I'm not a one-dimensional player." He proved that with his defense against Rondo, who closed with a playoff...
