Boston Celtics

  1. Rajon Rondo dropin’ dimes

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/66rQIH5s76w?version=3" height="240" width="320" /]

    Rajon Rondo had 24 assists last night as the Knicks went away from the old “make Rondo the shooter” book. And the Knicks lost. Somebody wrote the book for a reason. On another note: Are the first two clips here really assists? He makes the pass then the player (Pierce then Davis) put the ball…

  2. Delonte West, Von Wafer fight after Celtics practice

    Oct 29, 2010, 6:46 PM EST

    Delonte West

    UPDATE#2 6:46 pm: In pregame interviews, Von Wafer told the Boston Globe, “I don’t know nothing about it. First time hearing about it.” Doc Rivers said that there was a fight, “and that’s all you need to know.” UPDATE 4:35 pm: Speaking with the Boston Globe, Celtics GM Danny Ainge confirmed that there had been…

  3. Winderman: Contraction not a bad idea, just bad negotiations

    Oct 28, 2010, 7:43 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Contraction as collective-bargaining threat is lamentable on so many levels. In does little to advance the process, offers a solution to nothing. But contraction as a means toward competitive renewal? It is an option that should not be summarily dismissed, albeit one better debated at a time other than amid the expiration of a CBA.…

  4. Baseline to Baseline (your game recaps): Where the Clippers are fun to watch

    Oct 28, 2010, 4:27 AM EST

    BGriffin_dunk

    Our game of the night was Kevin Durant doing Durant like things all over the Bulls in the closing minutes. Which was a great choice because after the slog of ugly basketball that was much of Heat/Celtics opening night we needed new energy. But that wasn’t the only good show Wednesday night. Blake Griffin’s first…

  5. Cleveland’s healing process begins with a green light

    Oct 28, 2010, 2:25 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Cleveland Cavaliers

    In the five stages of grief, the last is acceptance. Let’s back up. The folks in Cleveland are a long way from that. It’s going to take a few seasons and likely a new star for Cleveland to move past this summer, “The Decision,” and everything that came with it. They’ll be booing LeBron well…

  6. Antawn Jamison came off the bench for Cleveland, and he didn’t like it

    Oct 27, 2010, 8:45 PM EST

    Byron Scott made the smart move — he started J.J. Hickson at power forward for the Cleveland Cavaliers Wednesday night. It’s smart because the Cavaliers are building for the future, and Hickson is young and needs the experience. It’s smart because the Cavaliers want to run and Hickson is maybe the best athlete on the…

  7. Game of the Night: Boston holds off Miami’s late surge

    Oct 27, 2010, 12:04 AM EST

    Paul Pierce, LeBron James

    Well, the Miami Heat won’t be going 82-0 this season. The experienced Celtics were able to handle the Heat on Tuesday night, winning by a final score of 88-80 and making the Heat look terrible at times, holding Miami to nine points in the first quarter and just 30 points in the first half. The…

  8. David Stern talks technicals. Again.

    Oct 26, 2010, 11:56 PM EST

    Image (1) davidstern-ap.jpg for post 2338

    Not one technical was called on a player in the Celtics and Heat season opener. Two teams with guys known for lighting into officials. In the Lakers game Lamar Odom got called for an early offensive foul said, something to the referee but you could see him pause, and just think better of it and…

  9. Poll: Who is the most hated team in sports?

    Oct 26, 2010, 8:38 PM EST

    LeBron James

    In an interview with TNT before the Miami Heat’s season opener, LeBron James said the Heat are “the most hated team in the world” right now. Really? That’s a long and storied list. So we ask you: Who do you think is the most hated team in sports?

  10. Birth of a rivalry: a Heat-Celtics primer

    Oct 26, 2010, 1:36 PM EST

    Miami Heat Media Day

    The Boston Celtics defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in last year’s season opener, 95-89. They would go on to defeat the Cavaliers in six games, paving the way for Cleveland’s end as a contender. They began LeBron James’ year by beating him and they ended his year by beating him. Coincidence? Okay, yeah, probably so. When…

  11. Shaq plans to ride Boston subway dressed as a woman. And play some basketball.

    Shaquille O’Neal is a hit in Boston. His big, playful personality has been embraced by the city — did you see how many people came out to watch him be a statue? Next up? Going on the “T” (Boston’s quaint subway system) dressed as a woman named Shaquita, he told WEEI. “That’s a good idea.…

  12. Dwyane Wade practices, Miami Triad returned to full power

    Oct 23, 2010, 5:14 PM EST

    triad

    Yes, Mike Miller is on the shelf. And yes, they are bringing in Jerry Stackhouse to fill a role on the team. But in South Beach, as Dwyane Wade said this morning, the “band is back together.” “We’re excited about having the band back together,” Wade said after the two-hour, non-contact session. “It felt great.…

  13. Celtics won’t attack LeBron James at point guard

    Oct 23, 2010, 1:00 PM EST

    lebronboston

    Let’s take a second here, because, guys. You guys. We have actual basketball-related stuff that actually matters to talk about. I know. I’m excited too. Okay, back to your regularly scheduled program. Turns out the Celtics have been talking a little bit about how they’re going to defend the Heat come Thursday’s opener. Particularly, the…

  14. On the eve of the season, one more trip back to the finals

    Oct 22, 2010, 8:35 PM EST

    The last Friday night before the season starts. A chance to kick back, relax and take one more walk through last year’s NBA finals. Before it officially becomes history and we start watching the path to the next championship.

  15. Paul Pierce still The Truth, has new ink to prove it

    Oct 22, 2010, 12:05 PM EST

    Pierce_truthtat

    Paul Pierce is ready for the season, ready for another serious run at a ring. How can we tell? Because he got a new tattoo. Of course. What, you thought we could tell because he leads the Celtics in scoring this preseason with 14 points a game on 51.7 percent shooting? No. It’s preseason, what…

  16. Bookmakers make Heat title favorites. Magic are best odds on the board.

    The Miami Heat are the favorites to with the NBA crown this season. Not according to most pundits, they have them close but not quite (although some have picked them). But yes according to the bookmakers at Bodog.com. Here are their odds to win the NBA title: Miami Heat                       17/10 Los Angeles Lakers            5/2 Boston…

  17. Shaq poses as statue in Harvard Square (no, Kobe did not make pigeon jokes)

    Oct 21, 2010, 8:41 PM EST

    shaq statue tweet basketball-1737867623_v2.grid-5x2

    When Shaq was on Boston radio a few weeks back, he talked about going out to a public place and posing as a statue for a while…. So today he sent out the tweet, and it was off to Harvard Square (just off the campus of Harvard in Cambridge) where for over an hour he…

  18. Jermaine O’Neal’s many nagging injuries may delay his start to the season

    Oct 21, 2010, 10:32 AM EST

    JOneal_block

    Jermaine O’Neal was brought in to help carry the Celtics through the first months of the season, while Kendrick Perkins is still recovering from knee surgery. Fortunately, the Celtics brought in Shaquille O’Neal to back up the other O’Neal. Shaq got the start, put up 12 and 9 in 24 minutes, on 4 of 5…

  19. Von Wafer hoping to make final Celtics roster

    Oct 20, 2010, 7:41 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers, Game 7

    The preseason is winding to a close, and according to Scott Souza of the MetroWest Daily News, Celtics swingman Von Wafer hopes that he won’t be one of the last players cut from the team before the first game of the season on Tuesday: After struggling badly at the start of training camp, former Florida…

  20. Doc Rivers reports he’s cancer free after surgery

    Oct 19, 2010, 11:03 PM EST

    Image (1) Rivers_referees-thumb-250x184-13266.jpg for post 2438

    This is very good news, the last thing we want to see is another top coach with throat cancer. Doc Rivers returned to the Celtics practice today and said that biopsies taken during his Sunday surgery to relieve pressure on his vocal chords (that kept him out of practice Monday) came back as benign. He…

  21. Timberwolves, Grizzlies hope preseason success carries over to games that matter

    Oct 19, 2010, 10:24 AM EST

    Love_Beasley

    Preseason games are not irrelevant. A team’s record in them can have some correlation to the regular season. Not so much with the elite teams — nobody thinks Boston is any better at 6-1 in the preseason, nobody is reading much into the Lakers being 2-3. Come deep in the playoffs those teams will still…

  22. Doc Rivers misses practice for minor throat surgery, will return soon

    Oct 18, 2010, 2:55 PM EST

    NBA Finals Game 6:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Doc Rivers is day-to-day. The official Celtics twitter account noted that Rivers missed Monday’s Celtics practice to have a minor throat operation on Sunday. That is to relieve pressure on his vocal chords, according to Chris Mannix at Sports Illustrated. Lawrence Frank ran the practice for the Celtics. Rivers could be back at practice as…

  23. Heat fans skip several steps, chant “Beat L.A” during scrimmage

    Oct 17, 2010, 11:52 PM EST

    Heat_Fans

    We don’t really know how good this Heat team will be — the big three have spent just over three minutes together on the court so far. It’s been a bit of a wasted preseason for the Heat. The players get it and have said they are not looking too far ahead yet. The fans……

  24. Eddie House has a one-finger answer to all the Heat critics

    Oct 17, 2010, 11:30 AM EST

    housefinger

    Lost in the immense number of stories about the Heat this summer, from the obvious LeBron James-Dwyane Wade-Chris Bosh meetup to Zydrunas Ilgauskas joining James to Mike Miller as the designated shooter and Udonis Haslem as the tough guy was the signing of Eddie House. And while there’s a lot of talk about how the…

  25. Tommy Heinsohn not a fan of the “stupid” new NBA technical rules

    Oct 14, 2010, 11:20 AM EST

    garnett_ejected

    Kevin Garnett got tossed last night for something said in a conversation with the referee during a technical foul shot. Well away from the play. Two techs right on top of one another. As you might imagine, old-school Celtics broadcaster Tommy Heinsohn was not a fan (thanks to Mike Prada of SBN for finding the…
