  1. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic: Game 6 or bust for Boston

    May 27, 2010, 9:13 AM EDT

    Give credit to the Magic — a lot of teams would have just rolled over after losing three straight games and meekly surrendered their season. I’m looking at you, Atlanta. The Magic showed some fight, caught a couple breaks and won Game 4 in overtime. Then they came out and threw a knockout punch. A…

  2. NBA Playoffs, Magic Celtics Game 5: Vince Carter should do the exact same thing he did last game, only completely different and much better

    May 26, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    Vince Carter had no redeemable value for the Magic in Game 4. He wasn’t scoring well, and finished with just three points on 1-for-9 shooting. He wasn’t making plays for his teammates, even if he wasn’t necessarily a ball-stopper. He wasn’t hitting the boards particularly hard, and he certainly wasn’t making any significant contributions on…

  3. NBA Playoffs, Magic Celtics: Game 4 a good a reason as any of why Stan Van Gundy's job isn't in jeopardy

    May 25, 2010, 1:59 PM EDT

    The Magic were on the brink of franchise embarrassment on Monday night, as the Celtics were in command of the series with a 3-0 lead and came back to force overtime despite fantastic outings by Dwight Howard and Jameer Nelson. Orlando’s season could have drifted away had Paul Pierce found an open Ray Allen at…

  4. NBA Playoffs, Magic v. Celtics: Matt Barnes says what we already know about Paul Pierce

    May 21, 2010, 1:23 PM EDT

    There are various degrees of flopping. There are players that “flop” strictly as a way to exaggerate contact in order to get a call they rightfully deserve. There are others who flop as a way to validate a smart play, like when the how every player that draws a charge isn’t just knocked over, but…

  5. NBA Playoffs, Magic Celtics: Dwight Howard does too have post moves

    May 20, 2010, 12:38 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard is a brute in the low post with no moves, he just gets by on his sheer force and athleticism, right? He can’t adjust because of that, which is why the Celtics can stop him, right? Wrong. Nobody is suggesting Howard has all the post moves of Pau Gasol, but he does have…

  6. Dwight Howard not suspended for foul on Pierce. That's fair.

    May 19, 2010, 4:55 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard gave a good playoff foul to Paul Pierce in the second quarter of last night’s game. A hard foul that caught Pierce’s head. He got a “flagrant one” for that — meaning Pierce got his free throws and the Celtics got the ball out of bounds. But that will be the extent of…

  7. NBA Playoffs, Celtics v. Magic Game 2: Paul Pierce's Twitter account and good times on the internet

    May 19, 2010, 1:55 AM EDT

    UPDATE 1:54 AM: It’s been confirmed by Athlete Interactive, the firm behind Pierce’s Twitter account and other digital media, that Paul’s account has been hacked. Paul Pierce’s Twitter account, @paulpierce34, has been verified for authenticity to give his followers the assurance that the feed is, in fact, legitimate. There’s no guarantee that Pierce is the…

  8. NBA Playoffs, Magic v. Celtics Game 2: Orlando can't just be different, they have to be better

    May 18, 2010, 1:55 PM EDT

    The Magic made a ridiculous comeback to make the finale of Game of the Eastern Conference Finals more competitive than the bulk of the game, but Orlando still dropped home court advantage and played anything but an impressive game. A Magic team that had been completely untouchable in the playoffs prior to this series now…

  9. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 1: The last word

    May 17, 2010, 9:11 AM EDT

    It’s time for the last word on Game 1 between Boston and we are giving it to the players and coaches. Well, this isn’t the last word from us, who are we kidding? There will be some more breakdowns and analysis later. But these guys should get their say.  

  10. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 1: Matt Barnes on Ray Allen? Vince Carter on Paul Pierce? Interesting.

    May 16, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Matt Barnes is nasty. He is a gritty defender. Hard nosed. In your face. Opposing fans hate him — Boston fans will come to loathe him like nobody else this playoffs. But Ray Allen may dislike him more. Allen has been deadly these playoffs — 42.5 percent from three and hitting better from everywhere than…

  11. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 1: The lineups and how they lineup

    May 15, 2010, 9:03 PM EDT

    So there’s a million lines of context to the Conference Finals. And we can and will discuss the intricacies of each one-on-one matchup. But what are some of the more distinct, specific elements of each team’s lineups? We decided to take a look. First, how did things shake out in the four regular season meetings…
