I've never understood why KG likes to shoot just a step inside the 3 point line (also known as the worst shot in basketball). I mean obviously everyone prefers him down low, but he's always been a jump shooting big man primarily and that's the way it's going to stay. Oddly enough I've seen him more than a handful of times shooting 3's in practice (made 4...
The Celtics came into Game 3 against the Heat on Friday needing another big effort from Kevin Garnett. And their request was more than answered as the big man went for 24 points and 11 rebounds in a 101-91 victory that cut the Boston series deficit to 2-1 heading into Game 4 on Sunday. Now playing center, Garnett is fulfilling a prediction his old coach, Flip Saunders, made 17...
Box Score after the jump.
Anybody who has watched the Boston Celtics this postseason will tell you they haven’t seen the Ray Allen that they’re used to. Allen is one of the greatest shooters of all time, but he’s clearly been struggling.
In Game 1 against the Miami Heat, Allen shot 1-7 from the floor for 6 points. He also hit only 3 of his 7 free throws, making him 18-30 in the playoffs, which is astonishing...
Kevin Garnett had 24 points and 11 rebounds and Rajon Rondo scored 21 points with 10 assists to lead the Boston Celtics to a 101-91 victory over the Heat in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals on Friday night, cutting Miami's lead in the series to 2-1.
Game 4 is Sunday night in Boston.
LeBron James scored 34 points but the NBA MVP and the rest of the Heat went cold during...
***Warning – The Daily Clean Up is R-Rated*** L.B., host of the New York based, Daily Cleanup, was brave enough to invite me on his midday broadcast to talk Eastern Conference Finals and the Boston Celtics predictions for game 2. Nick appears on the show at the 41 minute mark. The earlier segments, though vulgar, [...]
We’ve all had problems in our lives. We either accept them, complain about them, which accomplishes nothing, or we hit them head on and resolve them. That’s the decision Celtics fans, for that matter all NBA fans, face when it comes to the quality of officiating in what’s marketed as the world’s greatest basketball league.
LeBron James took almost as many free throws...
Are the refs giving away the Eastern Conference Finals to LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat? Is David Stern rigging the lottery to make sure the NBA-owned New Orleans Hornets land Anthony Davis? Both of those thoughts appear to be prevalent among many NBA fans, but just because people believe it doesn't mean it's true. Despite Rajon Rondo's monster performance...
The Celtics lead the Heat 55-42 at the half despite a furious 16-point first quarter from LeBron James. James went 7-for-12 in the first, but got into foul trouble in the second quarter that limited him to only 4 points. Rajon Rondo got back to facilitating constant ball movement with seven assists leading to 15 [...]
In what was an extremely entertaining game, the Celtics eventually fell 115-111 in overtime to the Heat Wednesday night in Miami. The Celtics held a 15-point lead in the first half, before the Heat outscored the Celtics 35-22 in the third quarter to take a 6-point lead entering the fourth. The Celtics came storming back and held a 5-point lead midway through the quarter, but the...
Nothing but conspiracy theories follow the NBA come playoff time. From the NBA lottery to the way the referees calls the game, it never ends. Former disgraced referee Tim Donaghy just brought more negative attention and ammo for that when he was busted for gambling on games, even those he officiated. Now, a Boston radio [...]
