  1. 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.…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 10 things about Modern Celtics-Lakers XX

    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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. Fans send Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett to bench in latest All-Star balloting

    Jan 13, 2011, 1:45 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Detroit Pistons, Game 6

    Apparently Boston sports fans have been so focused on what Tom Brady is going to do to the Jets secondary they forgot to vote for the NBA All-Star Game starters. How else do you explain the latest release of NBA All-Star voting which drops two Celtics from the starting lineup? Chicago’s Derrick Rose has leapfrogged…

  13. Latest All-Star voting has Amar’e Stoudemire, Derrick Rose on the bench

    Jan 6, 2011, 1:50 PM EST

    Stoudemire_frustrated

    What is the matter with New York? And what about you, Chicago? Not enough passion and votes there to push the very deserving Amar’e Stoudemire and Derrick Rose into All-Star Game starting spots in the Eastern Conference? Well, it’s not that simple, as they would have to unseat two popular Boston stars to get the…

  14. Celtics, Spurs prove the antidote to the L.A./Miami show

    Jan 6, 2011, 1:57 AM EST

    Manu Ginobili, Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo

    This was a basketball’s fan’s matchup. It wasn’t about the hype or the reality shows, it was about the game. With all the focus on Los Angeles and Miami, too many have missed that Boston and San Antonio have played the best basketball and have the best records in the league. It is far too…

  15. Rondo expected to play today against New Orleans…or not

    Dec 31, 2010, 3:05 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    Nate Robinson has performed admirably during his temporary gig as the Celtics’ starting point guard, but it’s time for a return to normalcy in Boston. According to the team’s twitter account, Rajon Rondo is “expected” to play in today’s game against the Hornets, giving the Garnett-less Celtics a needed boost. Apparently no one told Doc…

  16. Kobe Bryant still leads everyone in All-Star voting

    Dec 30, 2010, 1:47 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    With his worldwide popularity — he sells more jerseys in China than Yao Ming — it shouldn’t be a shock that Kobe Bryant is on top of the NBA’s All-Star balloting. The second round of released vote totals has Bryant with 1,153,694, well ahead of second place overall and Eastern Conference leader Dwight Howard (988,572).…

  17. While we wait for an MRI, Doc Rivers speaks on Garnett

    Dec 30, 2010, 10:25 AM EST

    Garnett injured

    There will be no real Kevin Garnett injury news until the results of the MRI are release later today, but we are not a patient people. Celtics coach Doc Rivers was on WEEI’s Dennis and Callahan Morning Show and talked about KG, which the brilliant Celtics Blog transcribed for the rest of us. “Well, I…

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

    Dec 22, 2010, 6:22 PM EST

    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…

  19. Rajon Rondo out a couple of weeks with ankle injury

    Dec 16, 2010, 4:04 PM EST

    Rondo_injured

    It looked bad when it happened Wednesday night — Rajon Rondo wanted to drive the lane against the Knicks, went right and tried to plant for a cut and his ankle just rolled. About as far as an ankle can roll. He came back in and played, but those things are often worse the next…

  20. Usual suspects lead early All-Star balloting

    Dec 16, 2010, 3:03 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    Results from the first few weeks of All-Star balloting are in and… well, it’s exactly what you’d expect. Pretty boring stuff, really. Lots of Heat, Celtics, Lakers and Chinese voters. For the Eastern Conference, LeBron James would start at forward in the East with Kevin Garnett (Amar’e Stoudemire is third among East forwards), the guards…

  21. Forbes: LeBron James most underpaid player in the NBA

    Image (1) ljames_points-thumb-250x140-15482-thumb-250x140-15483.jpg for post 3727

    This summer, while LeBron James was going about his decision and Decision, there was an interesting question floating around: What would James be worth on an open market? The NBA, with its max salaries, limits what guys like LeBron or Kobe Bryant or Kevin Durant might make in a truly free market. Their value goes…

  22. Video: Kevin Garnett with the game winner. Thanks Rondo.

    Dec 10, 2010, 8:12 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 4

    It was an interesting play call. With the game on the line the Celtics got the ball to Rondo, ran Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett up to set screens, and when Rondo went right he didn’t try to drive the lane, he waited for the expected switch (everybody switches late in games) so that Jrue…

  23. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Why do people keep leaving Ray Allen open?

    Dec 10, 2010, 2:46 AM EST

    Ray_Allen_stares

    What you missed while Jim Morrison was getting pardoned for a 31 year old indecent exposure charge… Celtics102, Sixers101: Probably the most entertaining ending minute of a game this season. It started with what looked like a dagger three from Ray Allen (followed by the staredown) with 1:04 left that put the Celtics ahead. How…

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

    Dec 9, 2010, 7:14 PM EST

    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…

  25. Carmelo Anthony out against Boston with sore knee

    Dec 8, 2010, 7:49 PM EST

    Phoenix Suns v Denver Nuggets

    Boston is catching some breaks this season. When they faced Oklahoma City Kevin Durant was out, when they faced Washington John Wall was out… And when Denver came into the Garden tonight, Carmelo Anthony was out. He had an inflamed right knee, according to Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post. It was bothering him last…
