A season to forget ended at the Garden tonight. I’m thankful because I just can’t take it anymore. The Celtics played atrocious basketball for 39 minutes. The performance rivaled the worst of the worst in this decade. If Dan Dickau was on this team, Doc Rivers would have played him 44 minutes. The offense was that bad. But… when trailing by 26 points in the 4th quarter, the never-say-die Celtics went on a run. A 20-0 run over a 4 1/2 minute span to be exact. I’m not sure how they did it, but they did it. Maybe seeing the immature, trash-talking antics by the going-nowhere Knicks was too much to stomach. Avery Bradley was a huge factor.  He riddled off 10 points and 3 steals during the near-miracle comeback. Where the hell was that effort this series? But the Celtics eventually resorted to failed hero-ball and the Knicks made some shots to close out the game. At least they made NY  fans shart their drawers one more time. What can you say about this team? They are old, fundamentally f...

Doc Rivers doesn't know if he will coach next season

Like the flowers blooming in spring, the annual will Doc Rivers return to coach next season chatter begins. Per the Celtics radio play-by-play commentator Sean Grande’s twitter account: Does Doc know if he'll coach next year? “No, I don’t. Every year is the same for me. You need to detox, and that’s what I’m going to do." — Sean Grande (@SeanGrandePBP) May...

Doc Rivers’ Future With Celtics Uncertain As Coach Will Make Decision Whether to Return

BOSTON — When Kevin Garnett went to the bench with 18 seconds left and the Celtics trailing by seven points, the crowd at TD Garden stood and gave him a rousing, sustained ovation. Despite Garnett having two more years on his contract, the fans realized there was a chance that could be their final opportunity to salute him in a Celtics uniform. There was no such applause given...

Melo's wife LaLa fires back at Jordan Crawford

Boston Celtics reserve guard Jordan Crawford instigated a postgame tussle by taunting New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony following Boston’s 92-86 victory over the Knicks in Game 5 on Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden. As both teams crossed

More Terrence Williams looks like the right move

In last night's inspiring 92-86 victory at MSG, Celtics head coach Doc Rivers used just two players off the bench; Jason Terry for 35 minutes (no surprise), and 17 for Terrence Williams.  Yup, the same Terrence Williams who was playing in China three months ago.  In fact, when Doc had to give Kevin Garnett a much needed breather halfway through the 4th quarter, Williams was...

Carmelo Felt Shoulder Pop Out Of Place In Collision With Bradley

Carmelo Anthony felt his left shoulder pop out of place when he collided with Avery Bradley during the fourth quarter of the Knicks' Game 6 win over the Boston Celtics. "It was a little sore throughout the whole game," Anthony said. "Then when Bradley came and hit my shoulder from behind, it really just kind of popped in and out a little bit. But I'm fine....

Video: Celtics incredible 4th quarter rally

If you missed the game last night, you missed an amazing display of Celtic Pride in the 4th quarter. Down 26 points with just under 10 minutes to go in the 4th period, the Celtics season seemed sure to be over. Boston had been outplayed for the first three quarters in every way imaginable. Then, little by little, they found a way to come back. Led by Avery Bradley and an exhausted Jeff...

Celtics have another offseason of decisions ahead

This offseason will be a lot like the last one for the Boston Celtics. Except they're another year older. Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce could be heading for retirement. Coach Doc Rivers also wouldn't commit to another season with the Celtics after they were eliminated from the playoffs Friday night with an 88-80 loss to the New York Knicks in Game 6 of their first-round...

Revisiting the 20-0 run

The real Avery Bradley finally showed up. With 9:48 to go in the 4th quarter on Friday night, Iman Shumpert's follow dunk off a Pablo Prigioni missed layup put the Knicks ahead 75-49.  What followed was one of the crazier things I have ever witnessed at the Garden in all my years as a Celtics season ticket holder. New York would not score again for the next 4:43.  Avery...

Funeral Averted as Celtics Stay Alive 92-86

Can the Celtics recreate Boston sporting history?

Less than a week ago, the Boston Celtics trailed 3-0 in the series against age-old rivalries, the New York Knicks. Instead of submitting to defeat, the Celtics moved a step closer to doing the unthinkable when on Wednesday night they defeated the Knicks 92-86 in Game 5 of their best-of-seven series. Trailing 3-2, the Celtics will show their worth tonight in Boston in Game 6 and if...

Celtics beat Knicks to force Game 6

They are too old. They can’t keep up with the Knicks. I think the Celtics have heard this many times. Even as they were down three games in the series the team fought back to force a Game 6 in Boston. If the Celtics can win this series they will make NBA playoff history. No team has ever won a seven game series being down 0-3. The Celtics have to win tomorrow night’s game first...

Boston Celtics rally but come up short, fall to New York Knicks 88-80

I had a recap written, a morose send off to a lost season, but like so many times before the Celtics made me tear the whole thing up. When Avery Bradley stole the ball and cut the lead to four I believed, in that moment I doubted the obituary I had resigned myself to writing and though the C’s came up short I wonder what comes next. When the Knicks’ lead ballooned to twenty I...

A Proud Loser

Losing, and the act of being a loser is often one of the most shameful and disappointing feelings one can feel, both as a player and a fan of that losing team. As competitors, whether it be baseball, basketball, or in the form of racing that I do myself, losing is one of the worst feelings one can endure. As the great Ricky Bobby once said, “if you ain’t first your last”. We...
