Boston Cleveland Game 6

  1. You should fear Tony Allen? Yes, it appears so

    May 14, 2010, 11:39 AM EDT

    All the talk about that LeBron guy — not to mention the play of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce — overshadowed the fact that the Celtics got contributions up and down the roster in this win. And this series. For example, did you know Tony Allen was a ferocious dunker? Neither did we, but he…

  2. Garnett's advice to LeBron: Get out now

    May 14, 2010, 9:28 AM EDT

    Kevin Garnett was loyal to Minnesota. Timberwolves fans may not see it that way now, but he could have left much earlier than he did. But he was loyal, he was going to bring a championship there. He wanted to play for just one team, to have that legacy as the ultimate face of a…

  3. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Cavaliers Game 6: Kevin Garnett can still beat you

    May 14, 2010, 3:26 AM EDT

    At the trading deadline, Cavailers General Manager Danny Ferry was thinking about the Magic. As John Krolik explained long before tip off, Antwan Jamison was brought in to counter Rashard Lewis. Nobody thought about Kevin Garnett. For six games — and particularly in Game 6 — Garnett completely outplayed Jamison, and that was one of…

  4. NBA Playoffs, Halftime: Boston Celtics 51, Cleveland Cavaliers 49

    May 13, 2010, 9:32 PM EDT

    Just what we all predicted, Mo Williams was going to come out and carry his team. LeBron James has been much more aggressive, but he has not been efficient. He had 12 points on 4 of 12 shooting, plus he has six boards and five assists. The good news, only three of those 12 shoots…

  5. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Cavaliers Game 6: Shaq has plenty riding on this game, too

    May 13, 2010, 2:41 PM EDT

    In 10 years, we’re all going to really miss Shaquille O’Neal. The player, I mean. Shaq the pop culture personality will still be around on one reality show or another. But on the court he’ll be missed, the classic bruising big body, but with amazing quickness for his size. In some ways, his legacy is…

  6. NBA Playoffs, Cavs v. Celtics Game 6: Shaq identifies the elephant in the room, but that doesn't make it disappear

    May 13, 2010, 12:58 PM EDT

    LeBron James blew it big time on Tuesday, and tonight will be his chance to redeem himself. That wasn’t the only storyline from Game 5 though, as the Cavs struggled in just about every way possible to keep pace with an awfully impressive Celtics team. The problem with James’ particularly woeful performance was that in…

  7. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Cavaliers Game 6: This is must win for the Celtics, too

    May 13, 2010, 11:35 AM EDT

    Boston wants no part of a Game 7. By the letter of the rules, Game 6 is only a must win for Cleveland. They lose, they go home. Boston loses and there is a Game 7 back in Cleveland. Except home teams win 80 percent of game sevens — 84-21 in NBA history. Those are…
