Hello Bobcats fans. Shortly after the loss to the Boston Celtics last night, I got to thinking. We have had some bad seasons in our short history, but this one is pretty bad. Our first season (2004-05) ended with an 18-64 record. This year, we’re on pace for 9.84 wins. That’s right folks, we’re on [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
I was in the stands to witness history tonight as Paul Pierce passed Larry Bird for second on the C's all-time scoring list.
This is how it looked during the timeout when the Celtics got to honor Pierce's achievement... including the tribute video. The Garden was buzzing all night waiting for this to happen. When it finally did, the place when absolutely berserk...
Brandon Bass (swollen knee) is expected to return to the Boston Celtics tonight after a one-game absence, a development which should add instant scoring to the bench but might keep us from excitedly (and repeatedly) shouting “JAJUAN MOTHER-FLIPPING JOHNSON!” at our television screens. For those of you fretting about my latter point, do not worry too much — we can still scream...
Yes, James Johnson 7-of-11 shots on his way to 15 points, seven rebounds, two steals and three blocks. A magnificent line (albeit with two turnovers and four fouls). He also threw down the sick dunk above. But this type of line from Johnson is far too rare. There are too many 0-fors or 1-fors and foul plagued nights to get excited.
There's no questioning Johnson's...
Hello Bobcats fans! I know I haven’t written for a long time, no it is nothing to do with me feeling too Depressed during this emphatic losing streak. I have had University exams for the last month which have been long and hard, a bit like the bobcats season. I believe Reggie Williams deserves some [...]
Sasha Pavlovic is dealing with a flare up in his wrist injury that will keep him out of action tonight. He will be replaced by Marquis Daniels, who since Mickael Pietrus’ signing has seen a sharp reduction in playing time. Also sitting out tonight is Keyon Dooling, who has been absent since suffering a hip [...]
After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value.
Rajon Rondo: A 14-to-1 assist to turnover ratio is pretty damn good. Most of his passes were crisp and he played under control the entire night. No signs of rust from the wrist injury.
Paul Pierce: I generally don't hand out praise to a...
With Paul Pierce’s 9th point tonight, he has past Larry Bird on the Boston Celtics all-time scoring list. He now sits at number 2 [behind John Havlicek] on the that storied list of Celtics’ greats. Pierce is the team captain, has a finals MVP and an NBA championship in 2008. Pierce surpassed Larry Bird in [...]
On a night where Paul Pierce climbed another rung on the ladder of team history, the Celtics used a team effort to beat the Charlotte Bobcats, 94-84.
Pierce's three pointer with 10:22 remaining the 3rd quarter (video here) was the 21,792 point of his career. The Garden crowd gave Pierce a standing ovation for a couple minutes. During a post game interview with Greg Dickerson...
Dirk Nowitzki and Paul Pierce overcame slow starts to return to the All-Star game, but the lengthy runs of Kevin Garnett and Tim Duncan are over.
Nowitzki was chosen Thursday to his 11th straight All-Star game, despite his lowest scoring average since his second NBA season. Pierce has come on after a slow start caused by a foot injury and was picked for the 10th time.
Bill Simmons interviewed Larry Bird this weekend. Off the bat Larry stands up for Red's loyalty and refutes Danny Ainge's story of Red throwing out trade rumors. Bird says the conversation did take place (where Danny told Red he should trade the Big 3), but that he personally wouldn't have done that. It's a shame that Larry had success as an NBA coach and is now seeing...
Paul Pierce entered the game needing nine points to tie Larry Bird for second on the Celtics' all-time scoring list.
While neither team is playing their best basketball, the Celtics-Lakers matchup is always must see TV. With Paul Pierce and Kobe both making their way up their respective teams’ record books, it will be cool to see two of the all-time Celtic and Laker greats go at it in one of only two games between the teams this season (barring a Finals rematch). The game airs on TNT tomorrow...
