Paul Pierce scored 30 points and Ray Allen had nine of his 14 in the final quarter to lift the Boston Celtics to a 91-89 win over the struggling New York Knicks on Friday night.

Paul Pierce, Celtics' Refusal to Lose Brings to Mind Earlier Team With 'Heart of a Champion'

Confetti rained down on the hardwood of The Summit in Houston in 1995 when Rudy Tomjanovich, the Houston Rockets' head coach, expressed a combination of heartfelt relief and vindictive "I told you so." The defending champion Rockets had been dismissed as too old to repeat, yet they were the ones strutting around in commemorative hats and T-shirts. Tomjanovich was asked...

Clutch Fourth Quarter Shooting By Ray Allen Sparks Comeback In Celtics Victory 91-89

  Despite a strong first quarter from Kevin Garnett (11 pts, 4 reb) the Celtics trailed after one, 28-27. Rajon Rondo returned to action tonight but was 0-1 in the first and took a shot to the eye early on. Carmelo Anthony found his shooting stroke early with 10 first quarter points. The second half [...]

Pierce, Allen carry Celtics past Knicks 91-89

Paul Pierce scored 30 points and Ray Allen had nine of his 14 in the final quarter to lift the Boston Celtics to a 91-89 win over the struggling New York Knicks on Friday night.

Despite Rajon Rondo's black eye, Celtics get best of Knicks

Expecting anything but drama in this game would have been foolish as the Boston Celtics outlast the Knicks 91-89.  This game was a nail-biter as the officials seemed to control the outcome all around.  First Paul Pierce made a huge three pointer as the shot clock went off that ended up not counting, then Landry Fields air balled the go ahead three, next Pierce made...

Unsung hero of the Knicks vs Celtics game

How great was that game last Friday!  What a great appetizer for the superbowl today!  Why was it so great?  I’ll tell you why…This was the first matchup between the Celtics and the Knicks since the disappointing opening game loss in which Melo picked apart our defense.  This game featured Rondo playing in his first game back since his injury in early January.  The Knicks...

Celtics 91, Knicks 89

Boston stayed close enough until the New York Knicks failed again. This time, it was because of the Celtics' defense. Paul Pierce scored 30 points and Ray Allen had nine of his 14 in the final quarter to lift the Celtics to a 91-89 win over the struggling Knicks on Friday night. Hanging close until they finally caught New York midway into the final quarter, Celtics coach Doc...

Comments from the other side - Knicks 2/3

Knicks fans are always good for some fun comments.  I've never seen a team complain so much about the refs when most of the calls were going their way.  Truth is they let a lot go both ways.  They call the Celtics thugs but yet, who ended up with the black eye?   I love how they complain about Pierce getting away with flops and then proceed to talk about how many flops Melo...

Celtics bite the Grizzlies, improve to 13-10

The Boston Celtics destroyed the Memphis Grizzlies with a score of 98-70 . The Celtics dominated the game with impressive performances by Kevin Garnett (24 ppoints, 9 rebounds), Rajon Rondo (14 assists) and Paul Pierce (20 points).  The refreshing good news for the Celtics was the play of rookie JaJuan Johnson, who looked very solid in 22 minutes of action (10 points, 4 rebounds...

Celtics 91, Knicks 89: Not pretty, but well-earned

A report from the New York Daily News claimed that Mike D’Antoni would be fired if his Knicks did not beat the Celtics on Friday night.Down two points, perhaps coaching the final timeout of his Knicks career, D’Antoni combed his mustache, prayed for the ghost of Steve Nash to come save him and looked at Carmelo Anthony and Amare, two of the NBA’s most dangerous scorers. He...

It’s Raining Threes!

  No one would be surprised if Ray, Pierce, or even Pietrus (who I’ll write about in a post later this week) was pictured with the words 3 pointers.   But Kevin Garnett, in the last 3 games, is perfect from beyond the arc (3-3).  You may say “small sample” size. But heck, who cares!  And KG, yeah, he wants you to wipe that surprise look off your face each time he drains...
