POTD 4/14/12: Greg Stiemsma on Kris Humphries

You know how people are always poking fun at Derrick Rose’s perpetually-plain facial expression?  Yeah, well, Greg Stiemsma is the same way.  Notice how stoic he appears after dunking on Kris Humphries… Whether he’s just blocked a shot, been called for a foul, or gone for a swagged-out swing on the rim… it’s always that same blank stare.  Don’t get me wrong–Stiemsma’s...

DeShawn Stevenson Breaks Rajon Rondo’s Ankles

DeShawn Stevenson seldom dribbles.  He takes non-three-point shots just about as infrequently (less than one per game).  I’m not sure what got into him on the following play, but he actually elected to both.  Watch as DeShawn put a stellar behind-the-back crossover/step-back move on Rajon Rondo, leaving a nimble set of ankles in need of a fresh tape job… Please disregard...

Ian Eagle threw a ***** Fit last night, I have no Reason Why

The final minutes of last night's YES Network broadcast of the Celtics-Nets game were complexing after play-by-play voice Ian Eagle inexplicably spoke (end sentence here?) his complaints to analyst Mike Fratello on-air. Eagle voiced his frustrations with the former coach, who is in his last few weeks with the New Jersey Nets. In other words, Eagle went the public stoning...

Report: Celtics Bus Late Arriving to Prudential Center for Saturday Game Against New Jersey Nets

The Celtics did not really arrive late to the arena Friday night before putting forth an underwhelming effort in a loss to the Raptors. It just seemed that way. But they were a bit tardy in arriving at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., for Saturday's game against the New Jersey Nets. Less than an hour and a half before tipoff, the Celtics’ team bus had yet to arrive at...

Comments from the other side - Nets 4/14

 Even though the Nets are tanking their fans still were cheering for the win.  But they also can't wait to get out of New Jersey.  Guess I can't blame them.  But the grass isn't always greener on the other side so moving to Brooklyn won't automatically fix their problems either.   Happy to see that Gerald seems to have found a home and matured.  I hope he sticks...

Celtics Pull Away in Second Half and Beat the Nets, 94-82

The New Jersey Nets hung around in the first half of this game but the second half was all Celtics as they pulled away in the 3rd quarter and pulled out a 94-82 victory in what will probably be the last time the Celtics play in the state of New Jersey. The Celtics outscored the [...]

Heat's Wade, Nets' Williams out Monday

Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat and New Jersey Nets point guard Deron Williams were not in uniform for Monday's game between the teams due to injuries. Wade was given the night off to rest his right ankle, which has given him problems throughout the season. The Heat are 11-1 this year without Wade in the starting lineup. Williams is nursing a right calf injury, suffered Sunday...
