    Fans love Nate Robinson — he’s a guy their height who can come in and shoot their team to a win on any night. Coaches fear playing Nate Robinson because he freelances and can shoot you right out of a game just as easy. Doc Rivers had used Nate Robinson sparingly because of that. But…

    And lo, I saw green horse, and on them green riders, and their names were the Celtics. And hell followed with them.

    Jameer Nelson came off the picks like he had done for the last two games, attacked into the paint like he had done for two games, tried to shoot like he had for two games. And there were long arms in the way. Not fouling, but altering shots. His kick-out passes led to contested Magic…

    Boston’s defense is back. With it is the running game and the big leads that the Celtics had in the first half of the season. Boston’s aggressive defense was back, holding the Magic to 44 percent shooing, and more importantly just 2 of 6 from three. With the Magic missing shots, Rajon Rondo got back…

    Man is it going to be fun to watch what happens inside the paint tonight tonight. Both as a fan of basketball and MMA — because there is going to be some banging. Dwight Howard and Kendrick Perkins are going to go at it inside, technicals be damned. Big Baby is back from his injury…

    UPDATE 1:28 pm: Magic coach Stan Van Gundy agrees with us. Of course he does, he’s a smart man. These were his comments today at shootaround, as reported by the Orlando Sentinel. “You know, it’s so funny the way things go, because we went down 0-3 and a lot of you guys were calling us…

    After playing sparingly throughout the regular season and in the first two rounds of the playoffs, Brandon Bass has been unearthed.

    At the end of Game 5 Wednesday night, Doc Rivers had to wonder just how many players he was going to be able to suit up for Game 6 Friday. By Thursday afternoon, things looked a lot better.
