  1. NBA Playoffs, Magic Celtics: Brandon Bass is giving the Magic a nice boost

    May 28, 2010, 12:54 PM EST

    After playing sparingly throughout the regular season and in the first two rounds of the playoffs, Brandon Bass has been unearthed. After two successful seasons with the Mavs averaging nearly 20 minutes a game, Bass was boxed up and hidden away in Stan Van Gundy’s attic. There were just too many big bodies worthy of…

  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 EST

    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 Celtics Magic Game 5: Stan Van Gundy has to be willing to gamble

    May 26, 2010, 10:50 AM EST

    Once again, Orlando, this is it. You staved off the monster, backing into a cave and swiping at its tentacles, forcing Rajon Rondo to the locker room, forcing Kevin Garnett into tough decisions (other than yelling and barking), and generally didn’t suck. Congratulations. Now you just need to do it three more times in a…

  4. 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 EST

    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…

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

    May 21, 2010, 1:23 PM EST

    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…

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

    May 20, 2010, 12:38 PM EST

    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…

  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 EST

    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 Celtics Magic Game 1: Everything coming up Celtic Green

    May 16, 2010, 5:42 PM EST

    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…

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

    May 16, 2010, 11:04 AM EST

    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…

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

    May 15, 2010, 9:03 PM EST

    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…

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

    May 15, 2010, 5:30 PM EST

    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…
