Rajon Rondo

  1. NBA Playoffs: Shaq is back, but Boston needs more

    May 7, 2011, 2:44 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Shaquille O’Neal will be back in Game 3 for Boston. Probably for about 10 minutes, 15 tops. There are questions about how effective he can be as he has not really played since January. And the Heat have said when he is on the floor they are going to try to run on everything because…

  2. LeBron thinks Rajon Rondo is a lot like Barry Sanders

    May 5, 2011, 11:05 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game One

    Obviously, I’m an NBA guy. I’ll watch random 1970s NBA finals games on NBA TV and get sucked in like it was happening live. I could watch Magic or Ice Man or even Harold Minor highlights all night long. But are there better sports highlights than Barry Sanders runs? That man was a wizard. So…

  3. Which team is more likely to come back: Celtics or Lakers?

    May 5, 2011, 2:51 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Ray Allen

    Right now, you don’t want to be the Celtics or the Lakers. History tells us the teams that have won the last three NBA titles are in a lot of trouble. Watching the games and how they’ve been outplayed makes it feel worse. Heading into a playoffs filled with flawed teams — there was no juggernaut…

  4. NBA Playoffs: Boston defenseless against Miami

    May 3, 2011, 11:17 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James celebrates after scoring against the Boston Celtics in Miami

    Boston is down 2-0 to Miami. It feels a lot worse. Celtics fans can take solace that the Celtics are heading back to the Garden, but it’s hard to see how that — or Shaq or anything else — is going to make a big difference in this series. For two games, Miami has robbed…

  5. NBA Playoffs: Can Boston flex its muscle in Game 2?

    May 3, 2011, 4:49 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game One

    Sunday Miami knocked the expected story lines of this series on its head — they were more physical than Boston. For all the talk about composure and the referees James Jones from three, the biggest surprise out of Game 1 was that Miami pushed Boston around. And that’s where things need to start to change…

  6. Boston far from dead, but they better get well fast

    May 2, 2011, 12:30 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game One

    This series is far, far from over. Miami set the tone in Game 1. They got the big game they needed from Dwyane Wade, the Heat were more physical, the Heat bench stepped up and most surprisingly it was Boston players that lost their composure. (That said the second technical on Pierce was just bad…

  7. NBA Playoffs: Wade leads Heat to Game 1 victory

    May 1, 2011, 8:24 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game One

    The Miami Heat aren’t the most complete team in the championship hunt. They don’t have a reliable starting center or point guard. They don’t have a deep rotation. They don’t have a lot of guys who can create their own shots. However, the Heat do have a stingy defense, players who can make open shots,…

  8. NBA Playoffs: Boston and Miami try to set tone in Game 1

    May 1, 2011, 1:18 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James and Dwyane Wade wait during a timeout against the Philadelphia 76ers in Miami

    Often, the first game of an NBA playoff series can feel like the first round of an overhyped boxing match — a lot of dancing around, a lot of feeling each other out, a lot of jabs but no haymakers. Not Boston vs. Miami. Game 1 is going to set a tone in this series.…

  9. What Heat-Celtics means to the Miami Heat

    Apr 30, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    The Miami Heat want to be great. Greatness is such a bizarre concept. How often is it used outside of sports? Politics. Spirituality. Business. Show-business. And all those things are complex and contextual. But it’s what we pursue. If the Boston Celtics symbolize that single-minded obsession with gold, the Heat are pursuing something that almost…

  10. Now we have what we want: Miami vs. Boston

    Apr 28, 2011, 2:42 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    Give the people what they want. And this is the series nearly everyone wanted. Old school big three vs. new school big three. LeBron James against the Celtics again — but this time he has new friends with him for backup. Tradition rich New England vs. modern and stylish Miami. Celtics vs. Heat. A seven-game…

  11. PBT Monday morning one liners

    Apr 25, 2011, 11:01 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    Mike D’Antoni is not as sold on Rajon Rondo as everybody else. This is what the screwed up politics of the Knicks front office does — neither Amar’e Stoudemire or Carmelo Anthony would really say anything about Donnie Walsh and Mike D’Antoni. That’s not because they don’t like them, it’s fear of crossing an owner…

  12. NBA Playoffs: The Knicks get swept

    Apr 24, 2011, 7:49 PM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni, Paul Pierce

    It looked like the Knicks were going to give the Celtics a run for their money after the first and second games of the series were so close, but the Knicks didn’t have the same energy in New York that they did in Boston, and the Celtics were able to sweep the Knicks out of…

  13. NBA Playoffs: Knicks take one more swing at Celtics

    Apr 24, 2011, 1:28 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    Let’s start with the injury report: No Chauncey Billups and maybe no Amar’e Stoudemire for the New York Knicks. No Shaquille O’Neal for Boston, but that has not mattered. New York always had just a puncher’s chance in this series — they were less talented but if Stoudemire could take over one game, if Anthony…

  14. NBA Playoffs: Celtics rout Knicks, take 3-0 series lead

    Apr 22, 2011, 10:43 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    This is why the Celtics are the conference champs until somebody beats them. Sure, the team hasn’t looked quite right since it traded away Kendrick Perkins for Jeff Green, and their bench is still a complete mess. Yes, the Celtics gave up the No. 2 seed in the East by finishing their regular season in something of…

  15. NBA Playoffs: Celtics overcome Carmelo’s 42, take 2-0 lead

    Apr 19, 2011, 10:25 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game Two

    The Knicks have certainly made the first games of their series with the Boston Celtics interesting. In Game 1, the Knicks were able to take the Celtics to the wire thanks to the stellar offensive play of Amar’e Stoudemire. In Game 2, back spasms limited Stoudemire to four points in only 16 minutes of play,…

  16. NBA Playoffs: The Celtics survive the Knicks

    Apr 17, 2011, 10:28 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game One

    Well, it’s been an interesting first round so far, hasn’t it? The Knicks were the latest underdog to give the home team a lot more than it bargained for in the series opener, and they were probably one shot away from stealing a game in Boston on Sunday. Unfortunately for them, poor late-game execution cost…

  17. How they can win it all: The Boston Celtics

    Apr 14, 2011, 7:06 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Chicago Bulls

    Let’s just get this myth out of the way: It’s not about Kendrick Perkins. Would Perkins help Boston right now? Damn straight. Would I have made that deal? No. Has Danny Ainge set himself up as a scapegoat? Yup. And he might want to think about spending the summer outside the city if Boston doesn’t…

  18. NBA Playoff Preview: Boston vs. New York

    Apr 14, 2011, 4:39 AM EDT

    Celtics' Pierce drives into defense of Knicks' Anthony during the first half of their NBA basketball game in New York

    SEASON RECORDS Celtics: 56-26 (No. 3 seed) Knicks: 42-40 (No. 6 seed) SEASON SERIES Celtics sweep 4-0, but know that two games were in December and one was a meaningless game played largely by substitutes on the last night of the season. So, three of the four have no real bearing on the playoff games…

  19. LeBron returns to top of NBA jersey sales pile

    Apr 13, 2011, 11:40 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    Apparently, a lot of you wanted a LeBron James Miami Heat jersey. Sure, you talked about his massive ego and how the decision was handled and how this reflected on him as a person — then a bunch of you went out and purchased a No. 6 Miami Heat jersey. Which means in one sense…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

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

    Apr 7, 2011, 5:11 PM EDT

    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.…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
