  1. Celtics Sit Starters, Choose Rest Over Playoff Seeding

    Apr 11, 2011, 7:35 PM EDT

    celtics-benched

    Any Celtics fans in the D.C. area who bought tickets to Monday’s game in hopes of seeing Boston prepare for the postseason with a thrashing of the home-town Wizards is going to be disappointed.  Boston may still very well beat Washington, because the Wizards, in the simplest of terms, just aren’t very good. But the…

  2. Heat exorcise some demons in win over Celtics

    Apr 10, 2011, 7:06 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    Let’s get this out of the way for the Boston faithful. The season series? Already went to the Celtics 3-0. The Celtics still have a good shot at the second seed and homecourt advantage in the second round. It was a mid-April game in the last week of the regular season for a Boston team…

  3. If the Heat can’t beat the Celtics now, they’re never going to

    Apr 9, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    Okay, Miami Heat. You lost to the Celtics in the season opener. You lost to the Celtics at home. You lost to the Celtics after you’d supposedly gotten everything figured out. This your last chance. And it’s a good one. The Heat are in a no-win situation here. They beat the Celtics on Sunday in…

  4. Doc Rivers still wants time away from coaching. Question is when?

    Apr 5, 2011, 8:02 AM EDT

    Doc Rivers

    Doc Rivers almost left the Celtics last summer. To spend time with his family, his son the elite hoop recruit and his daughter a college volleyball player. Maybe see his wife some more. Be a normal dad (whatever that is). He came back to the Celtics for another run at a ring. But he still…

  5. Video: Manu Ginobili with the playground fake on Kevin Garnett

    Apr 1, 2011, 9:05 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    There were not a lot of highlights for the Spurs out of the loss to the Celtics Thursday. San Antonio got it’s big three back, the Celtics still don’t have a center, yet Boston won with room to spare. But there was this. Manu Ginobili put on a playground move and Kevin Garnett totally bit.…

  6. Spurs, Celtics slouching towards playoffs; count them out at your own peril

    Mar 30, 2011, 3:38 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    Back at the All-Star break, a Celtics vs. Spurs finals seemed like a good bet. Sure, it made the guys who count the profits at ABC/Disney nervous — you know they want Lakers/Heat, and they really don’t want the Spurs — but the Celtics and Spurs were playing the best basketball by far. That matchup…

  7. Video: Celtics show the Knicks how to run the break

    Mar 22, 2011, 9:05 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics

    Since the Knicks aren’t running anymore, we thought we’d show them a little clinic on how it is done. Although, they saw this clinic up close and in person Monday night courtesy the Boston Celtics. You don’t see Kevin Garnett get out and run the break a lot like this anymore (he never ran the…

  8. Garnett: Rajon Rondo is playing hurt

    Mar 17, 2011, 10:56 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo was 0-2 shooting with no points Wednesday night, the latest bad line in a slump that has been going on for a couple of weeks. Rondo looks slow and banged up. Kevin Garnett stood up for Rondo, saying he is doing all he can right now, as reported by WEEI: “Rondo’s playing hurt,”…

  9. Should the Celtics be worried about their defense?

    Mar 16, 2011, 9:31 AM EDT

    Nenad Krstic foul

    This season, every contender has shown a chink in their armor. We talked about the Spurs defense struggling lately. Miami and Los Angeles have had ugly losses to weak teams. Chicago is untested and unproven in the playoff cauldron. And Boston’s defense may be a concern. Ever since the Kendrick Perkins trade there was the…

  10. Perkins exit leaves Boston locker room in tears

    Feb 25, 2011, 10:31 AM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 4: Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    The Boston locker room is tight. This isn’t your average NBA locker room, with guys who get along okay, but after the practices they all head separate directions with their posses. Boston was different. Call it Ubuntu, call it a bond formed by winning a title, call it whatever you want, it was real. And…

  11. The scent of an All-Star

    Feb 22, 2011, 2:40 PM EDT

    odomkhloe

    We bring you a brief break from the post ‘Melodrama drama…. To talk about scents. You all know about Unbreakable, the new scent by Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian. Heck, you’re probably wearing it right now. Admit it. We won’t think any less of you. What if other players were to start their own line?…

  12. Heat’s Mike Miller has no concussion, skips game as precaution

    Feb 16, 2011, 9:15 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    The Miami Heat’s Mike Miller had three blows to the head in five days, one in each of the Heat’s last three games. The good news is, a CT scan and other tests showed no damage according to the Associated Press. He was released from an Indiana hospital. Miller asked to join the team for…

  13. Others in praise of Bill Russell

    Feb 16, 2011, 9:55 AM EDT

    President Obama Honors Medal Of Freedom Recipients

    Bill Russell is a legend. A legend in a way we so rarely see athletes be anymore — a powerful force off the court for his beliefs as well as on it. Today taking a stand might get in the way of endorsement deals, so most players (particularly elite ones) steer clear of controversial topics.…

  14. LeBron James misses free throw as Celtics top Heat for third time

    Feb 13, 2011, 4:06 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    If you hate LeBron James, as much of the Western world does, today was quite a day for you. After being largely the only reason the Miami Heat were even in the game against the Boston Celtics, James clanged the first of two free throws down two with ten seconds left, then failed to save…

  15. The implications of Heat-Celtics III

    Feb 13, 2011, 12:43 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    For the first time this season, the Miami Heat will face the Boston Celtics with a better record.  But in the third meeting between the two best teams in the East, the Heat will need a significant amount of progress across all fronts in order to come away with their first victory over the Celtics.…

  16. Lakers to measure themselves against Celtics: What to look for

    Feb 10, 2011, 1:13 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 7:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers are the two-time NBA defending champions. They have the newest shiny rings and the banner has barely had time to gather dust. Every time they step on the court they are the team the opposition wants to measure itself against. Except Thursday night. Then the roles will be reversed — the Lakers will…

  17. Spike Lee thinks Kevin Garnett needs to calm down

    Feb 8, 2011, 9:55 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v New York Knicks

    Spike Lee is an institution at Knicks games, sitting courtside rocking the Landry Fields jersey. Jawing back and forth with players. Talking smack. And it’s all in good fun. Well, except when Kevin Garnett was in town recently, Lee said to ESPNNewYork. That guy lost it. This is really surprising, and this is all true.…

  18. PBT Monday morning one liners

    Feb 7, 2011, 10:09 AM EDT

    Ray Allen

    Ray Allen will be one of the contestants in the three-point contest All-Star weekend. Great piece by a Celtics fan and father talking about Kevin Garnett the role model: “He’s a jerk but he’s our jerk.” Linas Kleiza has denied a Greek report that he in part blamed the Raptors medical staff for his season-ending…

  19. You’ll never believe it, but Kevin Garnett picked up a technical for absurd behavior

    Feb 5, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Dallas Mavericks

    I like that we get to spend our weekends like this, don’t you? Each weekend you can get up, have your coffee, read the paper that you don’t get because you get the internet so why would you get a paper? And we go over what jackass thing Kevin Garnett did the night before. It’s…

  20. Yes, Doc Rivers plans to play his four Celtics All-Stars at once

    Feb 4, 2011, 10:52 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    Doc Rivers has a strategic advantage come the All-Star Game — Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen. Four Celtics. Throw those four out at the same time and you have guys familiar with each other and guys who can run more complex offensive sets (or defensive help rotations) than the vanilla ones…

  21. Suns Alvin Gentry: I lost a little respect for Kevin Garnett

    Feb 4, 2011, 9:04 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    Remember a week ago when Kevin Garnett pulled a couple bush-league moves, tapping Channing Frye in the, um, groin area and stepping under him as he came down from a jump shot? Both moves intended to bully and intimidate. Both pretty cheap. He got ejected for it (but no suspension). Alvin Gentry remembers, and said…

  22. Quote of the Day: Kevin Garnett doesn’t like anything Lakers

    Jan 31, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Kevin Garnett

    “You got a better chance of catching Bin Laden.” —Kevin Garnett to a Lakers ballboy who asked for his autograph on a ball, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo (via twitter). Not very cool, but very KG. Andrew Bogut tweeted later that KG said worse to a Bucks ballboy. Don’t worry, when asked about this…

  23. Celtics Lakers: Choose your own finish as Celtics out-draw Lakers late

    Jan 30, 2011, 10:29 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    The talk this week was all about clutch. And in the closing minutes, the Celtics were a clutch beast of unstoppable force, coming together for the most cohesive showing in a big game setting they’ve shown this season, right when they needed it most, at the same time as the Lakers came unraveled, possession by…

  24. As long as you’re not Kevin Garnett, Stu Jackson probably had discipline for you this weekend

    Jan 30, 2011, 12:20 PM EDT

    New Official NBA Ball Unveiled

    The NBA today fined Doc Rivers $15,000 for failing to leave the court in a “timely manner” following his ejection from the Suns game last Friday. Josh Smith was fined $25,000 for making an obscene gesture in the Hawks’ fracas-filled game against New York Friday. The fines come a day after Jackson suspended both Marvin…

  25. 10 things about Modern Celtics-Lakers XX

    Jan 29, 2011, 9:12 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 7:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    There are regular-season games, there are important regular-season games, and then there is Celtics-Lakers. On Sunday the two contenders will meet for the 20th time since the start of the 2007-2008 season, when the rivalry was truly renewed as Andrew Bynum emerged and the Lakers became good enough to justify trading for Pau Gasol, and…
