Celtics Heat

  1. What Heat-Celtics means to the Miami Heat

    Apr 30, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    The Miami Heat want to be great. Greatness is such a bizarre concept. How often is it used outside of sports? Politics. Spirituality. Business. Show-business. And all those things are complex and contextual. But it’s what we pursue. If the Boston Celtics symbolize that single-minded obsession with gold, the Heat are pursuing something that almost…

  2. Shaq practiced and he’ll play. Eventually. Maybe not Game 1.

    shaquille o'neal Celtics

    Shaquille O’Neal practiced with the Boston Celtics Thursday and Friday. He’ll play against the Miami Heat. At some point in the series. Probably. Yes, I know, pretty vague. But that’s what the Celtics have left us with. CSN New England gives us the quotes from Doc Rivers himself. “He just did a little bit yesterday,”…

  3. Shaq to practice on Friday, and then…

    Shaq_dunk

    Finally there are no more delays, no more reasons to put it off, Shaquille O’Neal is going to practice with the Boston Celtics on Friday, according to a tweet from Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe. Two days before the first game against the Heat. And then…. Depends on how it goes. Doc Rivers was…

  4. Heat need to start Chalmers, Anthony against Celtics

    Apr 28, 2011, 12:51 PM EDT

    Mike Bibby, Josh Smith, Marvin Williams

    The numbers do not lie — the Miami Heat’s starting five with Mike Bibby and Zydrunas Ilgauskas was outscored by 39 points in the first round. By the 76ers starting five. Every game — including Game 5 — the Heat would fall behind quickly, but in four of the games the Heat’s substitutes stabilized them,…

  5. Playoff schedule set for Heat/Celtics and Chicago/someone

    Apr 28, 2011, 9:36 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    The conference semi-finals for the East have been set. Mostly. Except for the details of not knowing one of the four teams yet. Here is the schedule for the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics, which is the one series set in stone. Game 1: Sun., May 1 at Miami, 3:30 p.m. (ABC) Game 2: Tue.,…

  6. Now we have what we want: Miami vs. Boston

    Apr 28, 2011, 2:42 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    Give the people what they want. And this is the series nearly everyone wanted. Old school big three vs. new school big three. LeBron James against the Celtics again — but this time he has new friends with him for backup. Tradition rich New England vs. modern and stylish Miami. Celtics vs. Heat. A seven-game…

  7. Eastern Conference Round 2 Playoff Preview: Boston vs. Miami

  8. Shaq will not practice Wednesday, Thursday. Will he play against Heat?

    Apr 27, 2011, 4:01 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    Now we return to Shaq Watch 2011… and still no sign of the big man. He did not practice Wednesday and will not Thursday according to A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN New England on twitter. That does leave open the chance that he practices on Friday and will be ready to go Sunday, but do…

  9. Winderman: Celtics advantages came courtesy Riley, Heat

    Apr 26, 2011, 12:13 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    Rare is the NBA playoff series when the opposition opens with a 3-0 lead without playing a game. That, however, essentially, will be the case with the impending Heat-Celtics Eastern Conference semifinal series. The Heat will take on the Celtics with a decided deficit at center, point guard and backup power forward. In each case,…

  10. Are the Miami Heat clutch? Not by the numbers.

    Apr 25, 2011, 11:28 AM EDT

    Miami Heat forward James reacts on the bench while playing against the 76ers in the second  quarter during Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series in Philadelphia

    The real test for the Miami Heat is coming. No, not Tuesday night, they will destroy the Sixers in that game. We’re talking next weekend, when they will take on Boston in round two. Or the conference semi-finals. Or when the playoffs really get serious. Whatever you want to call it. There are going to…

  11. Quote of the Day: Doc Rivers’ kids are avoiding him

    Apr 10, 2011, 9:53 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers

    Man after looking at this Boston heat score…when my dad comes home I’m going to stay my a** upstairs! He might be a little grumpy! Lol —Tweet from Austin Rivers, Duke-bound prep hoops star and son of Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers. My advice to Austin, don’t bring up the Kendrick Perkins trade for a…

  12. LeBron James misses free throw as Celtics top Heat for third time

    Feb 13, 2011, 4:06 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    If you hate LeBron James, as much of the Western world does, today was quite a day for you. After being largely the only reason the Miami Heat were even in the game against the Boston Celtics, James clanged the first of two free throws down two with ten seconds left, then failed to save…

  13. Quote of the day, Dwyane Wade and losing do not mix

    Apr 28, 2010, 11:43 AM EDT

    “This will be my last first-round exit for a while, I’ll tell you that.” –Dwyane Wade, after his Miami Heat were eliminated from the playoffs by the Boston Celtics. (Via TrueHoop). Take that for what it’s worth, you can read a lot into it, but the smart money is still on the help coming to…

  14. Sign of the future? Michael Beasley sits entire second half.

    Apr 28, 2010, 9:41 AM EDT

    With their season on the line, with the Miami Heat needing their best players on the floor, Michael Beasley sat. He did not start the second half of game five against the Celtics; he did not touch the court for the most crucial 24 minutes of the Heat’s season. Udonis Haslem played the entire half,…

  15. Dwyane Wade is a train and Kevin Garnett is on the tracks

    Apr 26, 2010, 10:51 AM EDT

    When Dwyane Wade wants to take over a game, he takes it over. When Dwyane Wade wants to dunk the ball, he dunks the ball. Which is why you should not stand in his way. Even if your last name is Garnett.

  16. NBA Playoffs: Paul Pierce puts the nail in Miami's coffin

    Apr 24, 2010, 10:01 AM EDT

    This series is now over. They will play another game Sunday, and people in Miami will speak of the 2004 Red Sox, but they shouldn’t. This is done. This shot by Paul Pierce ended it.

  17. NBA Playoffs: Wade gives last full measure of devotion, then Pierce wins it for Boston

    Apr 24, 2010, 9:54 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade has carried the weight of the Miami Heat franchise — and carried underachieving teammates — through 82 games. He carried them through the first two games of their playoff series with the Celtics, averaging 27.5 points per game while nobody else averaged more than 10. He did it again in game three, for…

  18. Rasheed Wallace fined for saying referees baited him into a technical

    Apr 22, 2010, 6:44 PM EDT

    Rasheed Wallace picked up a technical in the Celtics game one win over Miami. Also the sun rises in the east, Hawaii has great beaches and Dane Cook’s 15 minutes are up. (Well, maybe we’re just hopeful on that last one.) But Sheed apparently thought he had too much money and wanted to pay some…

  19. Miami Heat are more than just one superstar away

    Apr 21, 2010, 8:57 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade has said he knows what this team needs: another superstar to come there to play, and he is going to help recruit that player this summer. It’s going to take more than that to make this team good, something exposed by Tuesday night’s blowout loss to a Kevin Garnettless Celtics squad. Wade had…

  20. NBA Playoffs: We're pretty sure the Celtics beat the Heat so bad they won the series in two games

    Apr 21, 2010, 12:07 AM EDT

    Some people, I won’t name names, thought the Miami Heat would not only challenge the Celtics in the first round, but would win the series. Those people look incredibly foolish after the first two games of this series. (I was very much one of those names.) The Celtics, without Kevin Garnett due to suspension, thoroughly…

  21. NBA Playoffs: Big Baby to start, no need for 'Sheed

    Apr 20, 2010, 2:01 PM EDT

    With Kevin Garnett taking a league-requested night off, the question became who starts at the four tonight for Boston: Big Baby or Sheed. Glen Davis, according to Kendrick Perkins and the Boston Herald. Rasheed Wallace will keep coming off the bench, which yesterday he said would be good with him. The question becomes what happens…
