  1. Do Celtics have one complete game in them? More likely Knicks break out brooms Sunday.

    Apr 28, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    How many times have we seen this the last couple games of the Boston/New York series: The Celtics set their defense and for the first 15-17 seconds of the clock the clog everything the Knicks want to do. Their on-ball defenders are in the Knicks faces, their defensive rotations are sharp, there are no good…

  2. Knicks continue to dominate Celtics, take a 3-0 series lead

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game Three

    The Celtics are doing everything they can to compete in these playoffs, but the results haven’t been there, for a variety of reasons. Playing in Boston for the first time since the tragic Marathon bombings, there wasn’t a lack of inspiration or emotion for the Celtics heading into Game 3. As has been the case the…

  3. Can emotion of coming home lift Celtics to Game 3 win over Knicks?

    Apr 26, 2013, 6:15 PM EDT

    Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Doc Rivers

    The blueprint for Boston to get back into this series is there — they have won the first half of Games 1 and 2. Tenacious defense, getting points out of Jeff Green and/or Jason Terry to go with Paul Pierce, and to make the little hustle plays. The Celtics have had two problems. First, they…

  4. Celtics with long-distance alley-oop, Pierce to Green (VIDEO)

    Apr 24, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game One

    Paul Pierce and Jeff Green apparently have been watching Clipper games and wanted to get in on the act. The Celtics are not exactly know for bold, athletic plays but Pierce threw the half-court alley-oop and Green went up and finished it. Boston is going to have to find more easy buckets (such as transition…

  5. Celtics look to Garnett, Knicks look to ball movement to spark offenses in Game 2

    Apr 23, 2013, 1:05 PM EDT

    New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony reacts after hitting a three-point shot against the Boston Celtics in the first quarter of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in New York

    Game 1 of the Celtics vs. Knicks played to form — the Celtics’ physical and aggressive defense made it hard for the Knicks to score, but Boston struggled even more on offense putting up just 8 points in the fourth quarter and falling 85-78. But for the Celtics there was one real reason to be…

  6. Bad trend for Boston: Knicks’ veteran bench mattered, Celtics’ didn’t

    Apr 22, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin, Courtney Lee, Jeff Green

    Tyson Chandler, looking rusty after missing a lot of time with a bulging disc in his neck, wasn’t himself. The New York Knicks count on him to be a defensive force that owns the paint and get a few points off pick-and-rolls, but he wasn’t really doing either. So Mike Woodson turned to his bench…

  7. Celtics win three quarters, Knicks own fourth to take Game 1

    Apr 20, 2013, 6:35 PM EDT

    New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony reacts after hitting a three-point shot against the Boston Celtics in the first quarter of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in New York

    Basketball is about how you adapt and how you finish. The first 24 minutes Saturday’s Game 1 between Boston and New York went exactly how the Celtics want this first round series to unfold — Boston shot 53.6 overall and 4-10 from three, Jeff Green had 20 points on 10 shots, Avery Bradley had 11…

  8. Seven players whose teams need them to step up big in the postseason

    Apr 20, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    Jeff Green Since his 43-point game in mid-March (excluding Boston’s season finale, when regular players rested), Green has averaged 20.0, 5.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game. By any eye test, he’s looked excellent. But in that span, the Celtics have been outscored by 3.6 points per 100 possession with him on the court and…

    SEASON RECORDS New York:54-28, second seed in East Boston: 41-40, seven seed in East (the odd number of games is due to the cancelled one the day after the Boston Marathon tragedy, it did not impact the standings) SEASON SERIES The Knicks won the regular season 3-1, but both these teams went through seasons within…

    Tony Parker, Tim Duncan

    If you want to hold the Larry O’Brien trophy — the one that goes to the NBA champions each June — you’re going to have to pry it out of Miami’s cold, dead hands. Good luck. They are the defending champs. They had the best regular season record in the NBA despite coasting to start…

  11. NBA Power Rankings: Heat end rankings where they ended last season

    Apr 15, 2013, 7:43 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Mike Miller, Mario Chalmers

    For the final power rankings of the year my criteria are simple: Who do I think is most likely to win a seven game series between the teams right now. It is essentially a playoff rankings. 1. Heat (64-16, last week ranked No. 1). For a couple games this week the Heat rolled out their…

    Mar 28, 2013, 9:28 AM EDT

    Jeff Green, Paul Pierce

    Doc Rivers said before the game Wednesday he liked how consistently aggressive Jeff Green had been lately for the Celtics — that was always the thing with Green. His talent was never the question, but he could just blend into the background. With the Celtics needing someone to step up lately, he has. Including on…

    Heat forward James reacts after making a basket during their NBA basketball game against the Celtics in Boston

    All night long LeBron James had been a bull, putting his head down and charging to the rim, getting his buckets at the rim. Jeff Green put up a great effort, but he can’t stop LeBron alone (nobody can). LeBron is fast, strong and you have to respect his driving ability. But then with the game…

    Heat forward James reacts after making a basket during their NBA basketball game against the Celtics in Boston

    On a night with some big games and big lines — Stephen Curry had 30 points and just misses out — two of our three stars come from one game. One of the best, most entertaining games of the season. We couldn’t leave either of these guys off. Third Star: Wilson Chandler (35 points, 9…

    Celtics' Green drives to the basket past Heat's Haslem in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Boston

    This felt like a playoff game. Like last year’s Eastern Conference finals — it was chippy, there were some big highlights, and there was a very loud crowd fully into the game. It was a game that went down to the final seconds. And just like last year’s playoffs the Miami Heat beat the Boston…

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    The Celtics came out against the streaking Heat on Monday night like it was a playoff game. The crowd certainly sounded like it was. Boston had guys like Jeff Green who stepped up big time. And then there was this ridiculous chase-down block by Avery Bradley. He ran down Norris Cole and makes a great…
