Dwight Howard era. Big Baby is now the leader of this team and will
look to be aggressive and get a win against his former team. The
Celtics have to be aggressive and have to play team ball. They can't
look at the Magic's record and play down to them because they are still
very capable of getting a win if the Celtics come out passively. The
Magic are a good home team with 4 wins and 2 losses at the Amway

What Rondo has done so far this season has been nothing short of incredible
By now it's pretty well known that Rajon Rondo is on a historic run in the assist department. In fact, if Rondo can pick up ten helpers tonight, it will mark the 37th consecutive game he has done so, tying him with John Stockton for the 2nd longest streak in NBA history. Impressive, but also not breaking...
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 OKC.
Rajon Rondo with his 36th consecutive 10+ assist game. I’m not going to say that Rondo is not a tremendous, outstanding player, but let me say this: His assisting is incredible and there’s no denying he’s an unreal point guard...

Trading places: Green played well against his former team
Saying "best win of the season" is cliche. But so far, this was absolutely the best win of the season. The Celtics beat the Thunder 108-100, in a game that was hardly in doubt in the final quarter. The Celtics were led by Paul Pierce who was absolutely on fire, putting up 27 points on 8-16 shooting, and of course...

Rajon Rondo resumes his spectacular point guard play recording his 35th consecutive game with 10 or more assists–two shy of John Stockton and 11 shy of Magic Johnson for the NBA all-time assist record. Aside from Rondo’s quest, the Celtics struggle to gain momentum early in the 2012-13 season losing back-to-back contests to the Detroit Pistons...
The Boston Celtics outlasted the Orlando Magic last night in overtime 116-110. Not an artistic success but coming off of Friday night’s big win over the Thunder, it sure beats a loss.
