Paul Pierce

  1. These should be your All-Star Game reserves

    Jan 28, 2011, 5:20 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics

    The fans have spoken — the 10 NBA All-Star Game starters have been chosen. And as we said before, good on ya. The fans did well this time around. The way this works is the fans pick the five starters, then the coaches (or more likely an assistant coach, or the video guy, or the…

  2. Trail Blazers Batum’s MRI negative, he’s day-to-day

    Jan 28, 2011, 1:22 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    At this point, shouldn’t the Trail Blazers just invest in their own MRI machine? The Blazers got some good news in their latest MRI results that show Nicolas Batum has a bone bruise on his knee but nothing more serious, the team announced Friday morning. He is listed as day-to-day. Batum was injured in the…

  3. Paul Pierce suffers knee bruise, game-time decision against Suns

    Jan 28, 2011, 10:12 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 4

    At some point in the third quarter of Boston’s win in Portland Thursday, Paul Pierce hurt his knee. It’s not that serious — he played seven minutes of the fourth quarter after the injury — and he thinks it’s just a bruise, but if there is swelling Pierce could miss the Celtics game against the…

  4. Winderman: Will coaches pick four Celtics for Eastern All-Star reserves?

    Jan 27, 2011, 3:48 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    Thursday night merely is the show. No actual work is involved, as the results of fan balloting for All-Star starters are revealed. Then conference coaches take over from there, having to fill out ballot for the seven reserves in each conference (Commissioner David Stern selects replacements for any injured players). This year, it will be…

  5. Kevin Garnett set to return Monday against Magic

    Jan 16, 2011, 6:30 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic

    The Celtics have been struggling without their defensive and emotional leader, Kevin Garnett, since he was sidelined with a calf injury (which looked a lot worse at first glance). Garnett provides them offensive balance in the post as well as his patented defensive lunacy. He’s been expected back for about a week now, but of…

  6. Video: Paul Pierce dunks like he’s 25 again

    Jan 3, 2011, 8:43 AM EDT

    PPierce_celebrate

    Paul Pierce certainly didn’t look like a crafty veteran when he took it to the rack against the Raptors on Sunday — he looked like the younger, athletic version of himself we sometimes forget. Pierce turned the corner after a high handoff from Rajon Rondo then took advantage of what passes for defensive rotations with…

  7. NBA starts the year off doing what they love: fining people

    Jan 1, 2011, 6:09 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 4

    The NBA today fined Paul Pierce $15,000 for throwing his headband (UPDATE: possibly gum -insert dramatic music) into the stands during the first quarter of the Celtics’ win over the Pacers last Tuesday. Stop. Think about that for a second. Think about every time you’ve carelessly tossed an object. Now imagine that when you did…

  8. Tony Allen is a charter member of the Paul Pierce fan club

    Dec 28, 2010, 1:05 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Cleveland Cavaliers, Game 5

    Tony Allen spent the first six years of his NBA career in Boston before signing a three-year deal with the Grizzlies this summer. That is six years along side Paul Pierce, defending Pierce in practices and watching how he works. Watching him win games for the Celtics and shoot them out of others. Allen soaked…

  9. NBA Christmas Day: Naughty and Nice

    Dec 26, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    With five games on the slate yesterday, we ran down what happened in Baseline To Baseline and broke down Heat-Lakers.  Here’s who left candy in your stocking and who left coal.   Who’s was nice: Monta Ellis: When Ellis is on, he’s an inferno. And the Blazers yesterday were powerless to stop him. With 39…

  10. Paul Pierce still considers Hedo Turkoglu a difficult matchup

    Dec 25, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    Hedo Turkoglu, Paul Pierce

    Even though the rest of the known world may use Hedo Turkoglu as a punchline, Paul Pierce — Turkoglu’s positional matchup in today’s game between the Celtics and Magic — still seems to have enormous respect for the man. From Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel (via Evan Dunlap): “Hedo is going to be great…

  11. Boston still beasts of the East (and they’re enjoying it)

    Dec 22, 2010, 6:22 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    Why did the Orlando Magic dramatically reshuffle their roster last weekend? The Celtics. Orlando’s brain trust realized their current roster was not going to beat Boston come May. The Celtics knocked the Magic out of the playoffs last season and this season that gap widened. Orlando had to do something — and in doing so…

  12. Tyson Chandler is to Dallas as Kevin Garnett is to Boston? Dirk says true.

    Dec 20, 2010, 6:20 PM EDT

    tchandler_Mavs

    Last season, 26 games into the season, Dallas was 19-7 and it went on to a 55-win season. This season their offensive production is almost identical, but the Mavs look like a different, better team. One you might really be scared of come the playoffs. They are 21-5 heading into a showdown with a rejuvenated…

  13. Shaq is back and there is a party in Boston, complete with alley-oops

    Dec 20, 2010, 8:42 AM EDT

    i

    You can watch the video below to see Shaquille O’Neil throw down the alley-oop over Jeff Foster. On the fast break. And if you want you can pretend that Shaq ran the fast break and didn’t just cherry pick while you watch it. And you can pretend that Paul Pierce didn’t cherry pick as well,…

  14. To start off the weekend right, watch Nate Robinson flip over Paul Pierce

    Dec 17, 2010, 4:36 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce

    Really, nothing will get you more in the mood for a fun weekend than watching Nate Robinson try to recreate his Shrek and Donkey move with Glen Davis from the finals by jumping on the back of Paul Pierce. And Pierce keeps right on running, doing his airplane thing. And Robinson just drops. Enjoy. Well,…

  15. Video: Paul Pierce’s game winner, Stoudemire’s almost answer

    Dec 16, 2010, 8:54 AM EDT

    i-1

    It was one of the most dramatic endings to a game this season — and worth watching again. Paul Pierce with the veteran move trying to drive, getting his body into Stoudemire then hitting the step back. Stoudemire answering with a three to win the game — but just about .02 seconds too late (and…

  16. Game of the night: Welcome back to big-time basketball, New York

    Dec 16, 2010, 1:12 AM EDT

    Paul Pierce

    Paul Pierce was taking bows after a December regular-season game. Spike Lee was out on the court yelling at the referees and the Celtics. The biggest stars were spectacular on a court lit like a stage. There was an impressive game-winner and almost a stunner that topped it — the best ending to a game…

  17. Rajon Rondo to play, Shaq to sit for Celtics Thursday

    Dec 9, 2010, 7:14 PM EDT

    Oneal_peace

    Remember all that talk about resting Rajon Rondo’s sore hamstring and him taking some games off? Forget we ever said that. What we meant was Shaquille O’Neal was going to take a night off. That is what is happening Thursday against Philadelphia — Rondo is in and Shaq is out. Paul Pierce also is going…

  18. What is the deal with the Celtics and superstar-less teams?

    Nov 20, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    There’s something bizarre with these Celtics. They have three losses, and two of them are to teams without or missing their superstar. First they lost to the Cavaliers, which is odd since they don’t have you-know-who anymore, after they beat you-know-who the night before. But it was a back-to-back so maybe it was just one…

  19. Defending Rajon Rondo

    Nov 15, 2010, 2:27 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo’s outlandish point guard-ery this season is even more remarkable considering his obvious offensive flaw; Rondo is five years into his NBA career and yet his jump shot is still weaning. There are other wildly successful NBA players with holes in their games, but in some cases, there are institutional limits to prevent teams…

  20. Paul Pierce mocks LeBron in postgame tweet

    Nov 12, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Paul Pierce, LeBron James

    Just another one of the 82, nothing special about this game… yeah, right. Lest you think the Celtics didn’t get a little extra enjoyment out of last night’s win over Miami, check out Paul Pierce’s postgame tweet: It’s been a pleasure to bring my talents to south beach now on to Memphis LeBron can add…

  21. Dallas sags off Rajon Rondo for the win

    Nov 9, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    O.J. Mayo said recently that Rajon Rondo is the player he’d most want to play with because of how he sets teammates up. During the Nuggets broadcast last night, Kenyon Martin came on for a while and during that time said that Rondo is a better point guard than Derrick Rose. But Dallas didn’t fear…

  22. Delonte West on locker room fight: nothing to see here, move along

    Nov 1, 2010, 8:20 AM EDT

    Delonte West

    Delonte West addressed the media on a locker-room brawl with Von Wafer last week, saying it’s all good. Don’t know why you’re all worked up about it. It was no big deal that I just jumped a guy in the locker room. Not sure I can swallow all of that, but are the quotes, via…

  23. Cleveland’s healing process begins with a green light

    Oct 28, 2010, 2:25 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Cleveland Cavaliers

    In the five stages of grief, the last is acceptance. Let’s back up. The folks in Cleveland are a long way from that. It’s going to take a few seasons and likely a new star for Cleveland to move past this summer, “The Decision,” and everything that came with it. They’ll be booing LeBron well…

  24. Birth of a rivalry: a Heat-Celtics primer

    Oct 26, 2010, 1:36 PM EDT

    Miami Heat Media Day

    The Boston Celtics defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in last year’s season opener, 95-89. They would go on to defeat the Cavaliers in six games, paving the way for Cleveland’s end as a contender. They began LeBron James’ year by beating him and they ended his year by beating him. Coincidence? Okay, yeah, probably so. When…

  25. Dwyane Wade practices, Miami Triad returned to full power

    Yes, Mike Miller is on the shelf. And yes, they are bringing in Jerry Stackhouse to fill a role on the team. But in South Beach, as Dwyane Wade said this morning, the “band is back together.” “We’re excited about having the band back together,” Wade said after the two-hour, non-contact session. “It felt great.…
