Celtics Magic Game 1

  1. Quote of the day, Kevin Garnett loves him some Stewie Griffin

    May 17, 2010, 2:20 PM EDT

    “I watch a lot of Family Guy, so I don’t really watch your guys’ programs. I don’t know what you say.” –Kevin Garnett on how he dealt with all the naysayers saying these Celtics could not make a deep playoffs run.

  2. 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.  

  3. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 1: Where the Magic couldn't score inside or out

    May 16, 2010, 7:29 PM EDT

    Magics fans couldn’t help but ask: Who were those guys? What happened to the Magic that steamrolled an Atlanta team (who finished with a better record than Boston)? They recognize the guys from the fourth quarter comeback, but that was not enough. Now the Magic are in a 1-0 hole in the Eastern Conference Finals.…

  4. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 1: Everything coming up Celtic Green

    May 16, 2010, 5:42 PM EDT

    If they keep playing like this, who’s going to stop the Boston Celtics? Certainly not the Orlando Magic, who walked into Game 1 against the Celtics as heavy favorites, having swept their first two series of the playoffs only to get blownout for thrre quarters, make a furious comeback that came up short, and eventually…

  5. 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…

  6. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 1: The Redick-ulous Ray Allen matchup

    May 16, 2010, 11:04 AM EDT

    One is arguably the best jump shooter in the NBA, one of the best pure shooters in history, and one of the top five guys you want with the ball in his hand and an open look with the clock ready to expire. He’s an NBA champion, a roundball legend, and a primary component for…

  7. 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…

  8. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 1: The Rasheed Wallace Russian Roulette

    May 15, 2010, 5:30 PM EDT

    So here’s one. Rasheed Wallace is in his 14th consecutive playoff run. He’s made the playoffs every single year after his rookie season. That’s incredible. For  a guy routinely criticized for not wanting it badly enough, to make the playoffs every single year is kind of a big deal. But what he did in the…

  9. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 1: Stan Van Gundy believes giving valor to the victor

    May 15, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Ours is not a very positive society, in terms of the media, in case you haven’t noticed. So when the Cleveland Cavaliers were eliminated by the Boston Celtics, the turn from all over, including from this blog, revolved around the failure of LeBron James and the Cavaliers, and James’ legacy. As a side note, oh,…

  10. NBA Playoffs Cavs Celtics Game 6: Celtics overwhelm meek Cavs to advance to Eastern Finals

    May 13, 2010, 10:40 PM EDT

    And so it ends. The number one seed in the East. The number one seed in the NBA. The title favorite, again. The MVP. Cleveland’s best chance for redemption. Swept away in a green tidal wave of Celtic pride. The Boston Celtics out-executed the Cleveland Cavaliers 94-85 to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals because…

  11. NBA Playoffs Cavs Celtics Game 6: Celtics have a Magic reason to close out

    May 13, 2010, 3:52 PM EDT

    The Boston Celtics believe they’re the best team in basketball. That doesn’t really make them any different than any of the other teams left in the playoffs, save the Phoenix Suns (The Phoenix Suns: our NBA Playoffs Mickey and Mallory). But one thing they do know in the back of their heads is that a…
