  1. Boston vs. Chicago: It’s a playoff preview. And it isn’t.

    Apr 7, 2011, 5:11 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics, Game 7

    Thursday night’s much anticipated Celtics at Bulls matchup is not a playoff preview. Well, technically it can be. These two teams could meet in the Eastern Conference finals, but first they have to get there. Teams evolve during the playoffs, these teams will be different by then. More importantly, no Shaquille O’Neal for Boston tonight.…

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

    Apr 5, 2011, 8:02 AM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 30, 2011, 3:38 PM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 22, 2011, 9:05 AM EST

    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…

  5. Rondo admits to injured hand during slump, re-aggravates it

    Mar 20, 2011, 8:03 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    And now we know what has been going on. During Rajon Rondo’s two-week slump he has been battling an injury to the pinky finger on his right hand — that’s his shooting hand — he admitted to A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN New England. Rondo has shot 37.8 percent in his last 10 games because…

  6. Danny Ainge most concerned that Celtics get healthy, rested

    Mar 18, 2011, 3:21 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    There’s Rajon Rondo’s slump. There’s Shaquille O’Neal’s health and skills. There’s getting the No. 1 seed in the East. There’s a couple tough road trips ahead. There’s plenty of things that Celtics GM Danny Ainge could worry about. But what he is most worried about is getting the Celtics healthy and rested headed into the…

  7. Garnett: Rajon Rondo is playing hurt

    Mar 17, 2011, 10:56 AM EST

    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,”…

  8. Delonte West back Wednesday, says he will not be 100% all season

    Mar 15, 2011, 9:48 PM EST

    Delonte West

    The good news is Delonte West is expected to return to Boston Wednesday night against the Indiana Pacers. That sigh of relief you just heard was a very tired Rajon Rondo, happy to hear the cavalry is coming over the hill. He needed some backup help at the point. But it’s not all good news,…

  9. Doc Rivers confirms Rondo is human – and don’t call it a slump

    Mar 15, 2011, 4:04 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Deron Williams outplayed Rajon Rondo last night. Pretty badly. D-Will is one of the games elite point guards so there is no shame in him getting the better of a player, but Rondo didn’t look elite in his 1-for-10 shooting (with nine assists). As noted over by our man A. Sherrod Blakely at CSN New…

  10. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Back-to-backs not sitting well with Boston

    Mar 15, 2011, 2:41 AM EST

    Deron Williams

    What you missed while checking out the Cheezsculpture at South By Southwest… The Heat returning the beat down favor to the Spurs was our game of the night. Nets 88, Celtics 79: When the winning team shoots 39.7 percent, you got yourself one ugly game. The first half the Nets shot 32 percent, the Celtics had…

  11. Six degrees of NBA separation

    Mar 8, 2011, 3:35 PM EST

    John Koncak

    You can thank me later when you waste the rest of your day on this site. How do you link two bad big-men contracts in the NBA: the legendary Jon Koncak of the Hawks and today’s Darko Milicic? You plug them in the new NBA 6 Degrees of Seperations site and find out they are…

  12. Video: Rondo’s behind the back assist

    Feb 25, 2011, 9:15 AM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    Boston struggled to put up points Thursday night against Denver, but Rondo did his best to make it easy for his teammates. He ha 8 assists on the night, but none better than this behind-the-back set up for Glen Davis.

  13. PBT Monday morning one liners

    Feb 14, 2011, 10:05 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat

    Remember, Chris Bosh returns to Toronto on Wednesday night. Adrian Smith was the MVP of the 1966 All-Star Game and got a Ford Galaxie convertible as the prize — which he still owns and drives. In case you didn’t notice, Derrick Rose played good defense on Chris Paul Sunday. Take that Nicolas Batum. Yes, Rajon…

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

    Feb 13, 2011, 4:06 PM EST

    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 EST

    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 EST

    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. Boston looks like a title contender in win. Orlando? We’re not sure.

    Feb 6, 2011, 5:59 PM EST

    Dwight Howard Celtics

    The big news out of this game is the situation involving Marquis Daniels injury — he had to be taken off the court on a stretcher — which we cover in detail here and will follow going forward. Boston is a title contender in the NBA — that’s never been in question and why was…

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

    Feb 4, 2011, 10:52 AM EST

    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…

  19. Four Celtics but no Love among All-Star Game reserves

    Feb 3, 2011, 8:11 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    David Stern has some work to do out West. The coaches’ selections for the seven All-Star Game reserves for each conference came out and the East went pretty much to form. Now David Stern gets to add one player to that list and he has some pretty clear choices. The Western Conference? That’s hard. You can…

  20. Report: Rajon Rondo to be named to All-Star Game reserves

    Feb 3, 2011, 4:28 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Boston Celtics

    Frankly, there’s not a lot of drama in this. It would be a much bigger story if Rajon Rondo did not get selected to play in the All-Star Game. Marc Spears of Yahoo tweeted Thursday that Rajon Rondo will be named to the Eastern Conference All-Star Game reserves. The entire list from both the East…

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

    Jan 30, 2011, 10:29 PM EST

    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…

    Jan 29, 2011, 9:12 PM EST

    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…

  23. These should be your All-Star Game reserves

    Jan 28, 2011, 5:20 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 27, 2011, 3:48 PM EST

    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…

  25. League to rescind one Rondo assist from Monday — because it wasn’t

    Jan 18, 2011, 1:54 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo had 13 assists on the score sheet after the Celtics won in dramatic fashion over the Magic on Monday… except he only really had 12. Zach Lowe of Sports Illustrated pointed it out this morning (caught first by Mark at Sham Sports): On the Celtics first play of the game Monday night Rondo…
