Found June 07, 2012 on NESN.com:
Ray Allen rarely gets into it with opposing players, but Mario Chalmers got the veteran a little hot under the collar during the first quarter of Game 6. Allen and Chalmers battled for position down on the block, which itself is a bit of an anomaly for the two perimeter guards. Amidst their physical battle, the two got a little bit heated, resulting in a quick, face-to-face discussion at the conclusion of the play. Chalmers ended up receiving a technical foul, but Allen missed the ensuing free throw. In any event, emotions are running high in this Eastern Conference Finals....

Ray Allen, Celtics Need to Approach Game 6 in Boston Like It's Do-or-Die Game 7

The Celtics are one win away from the NBA Finals, but they're also two losses away from going home. With that said, Boston needs to make sure it approaches Game 6 at TD Garden like it's a do-or-die Game 7. Ray Allen is already in that mindset, and it's hard to imagine the rest of the C's feeling any differently when things tip off on Thursday. "Right now, the...

Ray Allen 'Fine' After Ankle Locked Up In Third Quarter Against Heat

Ray Allen had been moving so well of late, the constant watch on his right ankle had almost been forgotten when he went to the bench with two minutes left in the third quarter on Tuesday. The move did not cause much concern at the time since Allen had played close to 10 minutes in the quarter when Keyon Dooling replaced him. But Allen did feel discomfort when he left the game and...

Ray Allen, Paul Pierce Seal Deal As Celtics Continue Improbable Playoff Run With Game 5 Win Over Heat

Ray Allen had missed a lot of free throws, by his standards, in these playoffs. When he toed the free throw line with 13 seconds left in the game Tuesday, there really should have been some doubt as to whether the veteran guard would convert and clinch the Celtics' victory. Only there was no real doubt. Allen calmly drained both foul shots, just as he has throughout his career...

Ray Allen, Celtics Express Anger After Game 6, Taking Loss Personally (Video)

Doc Rivers said he hopes the Celtics take their Game 6 loss to the Heat personally. It appears they did. "We got into the locker room after the game and collectively everybody talked about being better," Ray Allen said. "We talked about the things we needed to do. There was a great sense of disappointment amongst everybody -- anger. But I know my guys will be ready...

Boston Fans Chanting 'Let's Go Celtics!' Steels Players' Resolve for Game 7

BOSTON -- Down by more than 20 points, with more than three minutes left on the game clock and the TD Garden seats at least half empty, Ray Allen and the rest of the Celtics got an emotional reminder of exactly who and what they were playing for. The crowd was sparse, but its message filled the building. Let's go Celtics! Let's go Celtics! Let's go Celtics! Allen and...

Video: Fans motivate team for Game 7 with 'Let's Go Celtics' chant

LeBron played an amazing game and the Heat deserved to win this one. That said, Saturday will be another day. The fans who stuck around deserve major props for their "Let's Go Celtics" chant the final few minutes of the game. And the team definitely heard you. In his post game interview Ray Allen mentioned talking to KG on the bench during the chant and calling the...

Comments from the other side - ECF - Heat Game 5 6/5

 What an exciting game!   I have to admit that I was very surprised that the officiating was even.  Good job by the officials for the most part.  But I know that the Heat fans didn't feel that way since they didn't get their usual +20 free throw advantage.   It is just amazing how Heat fans turn on their own team and players.  Wow!  No loyalty whatsoever.   My...

Video: Celtics fans start “Let’s Go Celtics” chant in blow-out

If this was the way that the Boston Celtics Big Three was going to end on the Garden floor on Thursday night, it wasn’t the way that Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, and Kevin Garnett wanted to go out on the court. I can guarantee the Boston Celtics fans didn’t want it to end this way either, but they know that it could have. They needed to send them off in someway if this truly is the...

Forget the Heat, Celtics are the Real Story

Take a trip back to February 22nd. The Boston Celtics had a record of 15-17, were almost out of the playoff picture, and were on a five game losing streak. Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett all were being tagged with the “washed up” label, and the story around this team was whether or not it was time to move forward and start a new era of C’s basketball at the trade...

Celtics win the craziest F'ing playoff game I've ever seen, 1 win from returning to Finals

Do you know what just happened?  Does anyone? I'll repeat what I said on Twitter earlier during the game.  I've never seen a team so close in a basketball game but teeter so close to total collapse like the Celtics did all night.  They had a million chances to fold, and it looked like they'd take about 900,000 of them at various points.  The most egregious loss...

Celtics blow best chance, will get another in Game 7

The shots weren't falling, the fans were streaming out of the building and Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers had long ago conceded defeat by lifting his starters. That's when the crowd gave the Big Three one last sendoff. With Boston trailing the Heat by 20 points in the final minutes, the fans remaining in the half-full building rose to their feet and began a nonstop chant...

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...

Nonsensical blabber at 5 am from a Celtics fan

Dwayne Wade had 27 points.  Lebron James had 30.  The Heat had their home crowd dressed all in white behind them.  Miami out rebounded Boston 49-39.  Paul Pierce shot 6-19.  Ray Allen made just 2 of 9 field goal attempts.  And Rajon Rondo hit only 3 of the 15 shots he put up.  Yet somehow the Celtics won their third straight game in this series. What the Celtics are doing...
