Worn Out Celtics Wear Out Depleted Nets: 86-76

on
It was a bit of a strange game. Down by two points (61-59) to the 0-6 Nets starting the fourth period, Brian Scalabrine sparked a lethargic Celtic offense with a three pointer, followed by a two pointer that was a toenail away from being another three. After scoring just 4 points on 1 of 7 […] [Read More]

Suns Shred Celtics Defense for C’s First Loss: 110-103

on
The Celtics lost their first game.  But give them the Heinz Award for playing ‘catch up’ for most of 48 minutes. The high flying Suns are back. They had the Celtics backing up all night.

Bynum Thinks Lakers Could Break Bulls Record

on

I’m late to the party but here is what Laker center 7′ 0″ Andrew Bynum told Yahoo Sports Johnny Ludden.… “Our goal should be to break the […] [Read More]

Celtics Sneak By Wolves: 92-90

on
Rajon Rondo, the Celtic reserves, a double double and a key play by Kevin Garnett resulting in a jump ball helped the lethargic Celtics stay undefeated. This game was much too close. For a team bent on setting records, the second game of a ‘back-to-back’ against a bottom rung team can still be a killer. […] [Read More]

This became another blow out in the second half, as the Celtic move their record to 5-0. The Boston Stranglers are doing it with a defense that is locking up most teams, […] [Read More]
