  1. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Cavaliers Game 6: This is must win for the Celtics, too

    May 13, 2010, 11:35 AM EDT

    Boston wants no part of a Game 7. By the letter of the rules, Game 6 is only a must win for Cleveland. They lose, they go home. Boston loses and there is a Game 7 back in Cleveland. Except home teams win 80 percent of game sevens — 84-21 in NBA history. Those are…

  2. NBA Playoffs Celtics Cavs Game 5: Let's not overlook the return of the Celtics' horsemen

    May 12, 2010, 11:14 AM EDT

    I understand the reaction. I had the same. Shock. Disappointment. Disbelief. It’s not about who you root for. LeBron James performing at a high level? It’s good for the NBA. It’s good for the playoffs. It’s good for the sport. And his monumental failure last night left a lot of basketball fans feeling betrayed, and…

  3. NBA Playoffs Cavs Celtics Game 4: Rajon Rondo puts on a show while LeBron James doth defer too much

    May 9, 2010, 6:03 PM EDT

    We finally got a close one. And the Celtics finally have a hero besides Rajon Rondo. Tony Allen came in and played a huge game for the Celtics, who evened the series at 2-2 after a 97-87 win in Boston. Allen had 18 points off the bench and finished consistently off Rajon Rondo’s drive and…

  4. NBA Playoffs Cavs Celtics Game 3: Witness the power of this fully operational elbow

    May 7, 2010, 9:18 PM EDT

    The pendulum swings both ways. Tonight, LeBron James swung it through the Celtics’ fortress walls and left their homecourt advantage in ruins. James took over in a way we haven’t seen, maybe since his Game 5 performance against the Pistons in 07, completely dominating at both ends of the floor while getting his teammates involved.…

  5. Nobody is healthy, everybody going to play in Cavaliers/Celtics Game 3

    May 6, 2010, 3:51 PM EDT

    LeBron James’ elbow. Kevin Garnett’s foot. Anderson Varejao’s back. Kendrick Perkins knee. Four injuries, one report: They practiced today and are all expected to play on Friday night in the big game three between Boston and Cleveland. See, that wasn’t so hard. Brian Windhorst handled the whole thing on twitter. If this were the regular…

  6. NBA Playoffs, Cavaliers Celtics: Garnett and Perkins are banged up but will go for Game 3

    May 5, 2010, 5:52 PM EDT

    Nobody left on a playoff team is really healthy right now. Well, Kosta Koufos is, although that isn’t really doing anybody any good. But the Celtics had team heartbeat Kevin Garnett and the guy who has to defend Shaquille O’Neal (Kendrick Perkins) banged up, and that could be trouble. Both are sore, but both will…

  7. NBA Playoffs Celtics Cavs Game 2: Celtics attempt to charge the gates once more

    May 3, 2010, 6:19 PM EDT

    Celtics fans: “Okay, guys, just do what you did in the first half of Game 1, but for the WHOLE GAME THIS TIME. Got it?Ready…break!” Cavs fans: “Let’s not toy with them this time, okay guys?” The Cavs came out in the first half of Game 1 and looked shellshocked. They had no answers for…

  8. Kobe Bryant still king of NBA Jersey sales, LeBron is queen, Celtics fans will buy anything.

    Apr 28, 2010, 11:09 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant. Love him or hate him, you buy his gear. Admit it. The Lakers sudden defensive stopper topped the sales chart at NBA.com and the NBA Store in Manhattan for the second straight year, according to a league announcement Wednesday. LeBron James was second, because really the NBA is all about LeBron and Kobe…

  9. 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.

  10. NBA Playoffs: Dwyane Wade isn't quite ready for his season to be over, goes bonkers in the fourth to down the Celtics in Game 4

    Apr 25, 2010, 4:38 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade had six turnovers, missed eight shots, and botched five free throws in Game 4 against the Boston Celtics. Other than that, he could do no wrong. An enormously impressive 46-point, five-rebound, five-assist performance stands testament to that, and Wade’s performance was capped off brilliantly by scoring 17 of Miami’s 30 points in the…

  11. Joakim Noah says Kevin Garnett is 'dirty'

    Apr 18, 2010, 2:24 PM EDT

    Joakim Noah, who’s not even playing the Celtics, has weighed in on Kevin Garnett following Garnett’s little scuffle with the Heat last night. And the review is not glowing. Via the Chicago Tribune: “I’m going to say it: He’s a dirty player,” Noah said following Bulls practice Sunday. Asked if he felt Garnett should be…

  12. NBA Playoffs: Kevin Garnett says "Q was… talking nonsense"

    Apr 17, 2010, 11:58 PM EDT

    As we told you in the recap, Kevin Garnett wound up in an altercation with Quentin Richardson near the Heat bench near the end of the 4th quarter of the Celtics’ Game One win over the Heat. Garnett seemed to start the altercation by elbowing Richardson out of the way as he approached Paul Pierce…

  13. NBA Playoffs: Celtics turn back the clock to take Game 1 over Heat, but may lose Kevin Garnett to suspension

    Apr 17, 2010, 10:05 PM EDT

    It looked like the same old Celtics we’ve seen this season. Outworked, outhustled, down double digits in the third quarter. And then all of a sudden, they hopped in the Hot Tub Time Machine during a timeout. And out popped the Celtics from the 2008 Championship run to lock down the Heat and take Game…

  14. Is the Celtics locker room fractured?

    Apr 15, 2010, 1:26 PM EDT

    The Celtics success in 2008 was based around Ubuntu. It was about team first. Unity and chemistry making the whole better than the sum of the parts. Got them another banner. On the court, the Celtics clearly do not look the same. Do their problems extend into the locker room, is it fractured? Boston Globe…

  15. NBA Playoffs: Celtics still have championship recipe, even if they have to improvise on ingredients

    Apr 15, 2010, 9:57 AM EDT

    The Celtics won it all two years ago, you know. They were hungrier then, and healthier, too. James Posey-er, even. But that team, with a Rajon Rondo that wasn’t quite this impressive and absolutely depressing depth at center. Paul Pierce was more prolific then, Kevin Garnett was more productive then, Ray Allen was more consistent…

  16. Brooks and the Thunder are improving in the clutch

    Apr 1, 2010, 12:21 PM EDT

    The Thunder have undoubtedly been the most surprising team of the season, and with that surprise comes some unreasonable perceptions. For starters, the notion that the Thunder are a good offensive team because they have Kevin Durant, one of the best scorers in the league, is laughably false. Similarly, because the Durantula is, as mentioned,…

  17. Bosh has never had the chance he deserves

    Mar 25, 2010, 11:54 AM EDT

    If last night’s 26-point loss to the Jazz (and seventh loss in their last ten games) didn’t make it painfully obvious, I’ll spell it out for you: the Toronto Raptors are not a particularly good basketball team. They have some talent at the top of their roster, but are painfully thin at some positions and…

  18. Celtics face 'win or blow-up' scenario

    Feb 27, 2010, 2:54 PM EDT

    It was all worth it. You have to tell yourself that, Celtics fan or no. The offseason that brought Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett to Boston next to Paul Pierce was a success, because it brought a banner, and there’s nothing that can be done to refute that. The NBA’s ultimate prize is worth the…

  19. Celtics post ridiculously obvious sign in locker room

    Feb 27, 2010, 1:19 PM EDT

    They have All-Star appearances, MVPs, All-NBA marks, franchise records, places in history, and an NBA title. Yet apparently they still needed to be reminded of cliche platitudes to perform to a level befitting their salary. Today the Celtics found a new sign in their locker room (via the Boston Globe), that said: “INDIVIDUALS WIN GAMES…

  20. Study: Winners touch a lot. Appropriately. We think.

    Feb 23, 2010, 9:24 AM EDT

    A recent study of the NBA outlined in the New York Times this morning states that there is a high correlation between the frequency of touching between teammates on the floor and their performance. From the NYTimes: In a paper due out this year in the journal Emotion, Mr. Kraus and his co-authors, Cassy Huang…

  21. Kevin Garnett: "Brandon (Roy) looks hurt"

    Feb 20, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    Brandon Roy gave his hamstring a go last night, the same hamstring that he said may keep him out the rest of the season. Roy knew his team needed him last night against the Celtics, and is trying to power through the injury. Indeed, in post-game comments, both Roy and head coach Nate McMillan tried…
