VIDEO: Full Highlights of Rondo's Triple Double vs Heat

The Celtics are just beginning the "daunting" part of their schedule, or as I like to call it, the "fun" part. Rajon Rondo started off April with a bang.  His 18th career triple double was only fooling Miami yesterday as he notched 16 points, 11 rebounds, 14 assists with only 2 turnovers. Rondo has just been on a tear since the All-star break, consistently...

Paul Pierce named Eastern Conference Player of the Week

If my calculations are correct, Pierce averaged 25.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.0 steals this week, while being overlooked by fans in favor of heaping praise on Kevin Garnett and/or Rajon Rondo approximately 15,398,387 times. (Note: Don’t take that as an insult to KG or Rondo. Both deserve all the praise they’ve gotten, just like Pierce deserves a lot more praise...

Rajon Rondo…Good Teammate?

While many may call me crazy for posting such an article, fresh off an electrifying triple double against the Miami Heat, I offer that the performance from Celtics star point guard Rajon Rondo only further solidifies the argument I am about to make. Rajon Rondo is not a good teammate. So before you “X” out [...]

Rondo Dismantles Miami, Leaves Me In Need Of A Late Pass

Did you spend your Sunday afternoon watching the second half of ABC’s doubleheader?  If so, then you maybe have seen me.  Section one, row ten, seat eight, grey fitted hat with the sticker.  I was next to that guy with enough fake jewelry to open his own kiosk, and two seats behind Rajon Rondo’s wife, who spent most of the game lint rolling.  I accidentally left the camera...

Paul Pierce Named NBA Eastern Conference Player of the Week

Paul Pierce rivaled Lebron James with a stellar all-around performance against the Heat on Sunday. And the Celtics captain is being properly recognized for his outstanding play of late. On Monday, Pierce was named as the NBA's Eastern Conference Player of the Week. This is the second time that Pierce has won the award this season, also taking home the honors during the first...

Rondo's triple-double sparks Celtics past Heat

Don't look now, but the Boston Celtics have been creeping up the standings in the Eastern Conference.  Last night, the C's quite arguably had their most impressive win on the season with a 91-72 blowout victory over the Miami Heat.  Boston was in control from the start thanks to a brilliant first quarter from Rajon Rondo. After leading by 5 at the half, the Celtics...

Kansas-Kentucky Championship Game Has Paul Pierce Representing

Paul Pierce was more than ready for the college basketball championship tipoff Monday night. He tweeted a photo of himself decked out in his Kansas threads, calling on Kentucky alumnus Rajon Rondo to do the same with a Wildcats jersey. “I’m ready,” Pierce said in his tweet, where he was wearing the familiar No. 34.

Shane Battier bounces ball off Paul Pierce's back for basket (Video)

It's not often that an NBA player gets duped by a playground move but check out this clip from yesterday's Heat/Celtics affair as Paul Pierce ends up giving Heat forward Shane Battier an easy basket.The play happened midway through the second quarter during a Miami in-bounds play as Pierce had his back turned and Shane saw the opportunity to bounce it off his back for an easy hoop:

Taking Stock: C's - Heat

After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value. Starters  Rajon Rondo:  Screw the green arrow, Rondo deserves a gold star for his performance. His 1st quarter was phenomenal: 10 points, 4 assists and 4 rebounds. The Heat knew they were in for a fight right from the start. He managed the game brilliantly...

Spurs 87, Celtics 86: A valiant comeback falls short

Forget for a second the loss, which could have been a win if Paul Pierce’s buzzer beater had been just a few inches different.Tonight’s Celtics performance demonstrated everything that makes the Celtics tough to beat and everything that will hold them back. They had offensive droughts. Occasionally made turnovers that left me shaking my head. Couldn’t rebound for ****, including...

Paul Pierce was almost traded to the New Jersey Nets at the trade deadline, says Bill Simmons

According to Bill Simmons, the Boston Celtics nearly traded Paul Pierce to the New Jersey Nets at the trade deadline for a package similar to the one the Nets ultimately shipped to the Portland Trail Blazers for Gerald Wallace. Clearly, whatever trades did not happen at the trade deadline don’t matter much in reality. But in an alternate universe somewhere, the Celtics have Mehmet...

Quicker Celtics playing some of their best ball of Big 3 era

Two years ago the Celtics played .500 ball the 2nd half of the season, yet still made it to the NBA Finals. Last year the C's played sub .500 ball the 2nd half of the season and were knocked out of the playoffs in the 2nd round. This year the Celtics seemed destined to regress even further unless they made some roster changes. The two key additions were supposed to be a full...

Can the Boston Celtics Make One More Run?

It wasn’t too long ago that it looked like the Boston Celtics were going to be blown up. Rajon Rondo was shopped for the better part of the season. Ray Allen was available for the right combination of picks and young players. There were even rumors that Paul Pierce was available, again, for the right price. I don’t think anyone would have been really surprised if Danny Ainge...
