This Game 3 Will Define Rondo For The Rest Of His Life

...and probably beyond. That's the impression I get reading various reports about it. What we saw in this game will become legend... so that whatever he does, wherever he goes, Rondo will be...

Going All The Way

The Celtics' chances of going all the way to the Finals and winning it all this year have gotten a big boost lately.... and only in part because of the team's play. The other part is what's...

Excessive Exuberance? - Celtics Not Ready; Sweep May Be Bad

It is true that the Celtics played a great game 3 in MSG, on both ends of the floor. But they don't look ready yet for the coming rounds. One reason: the opposition was both woeful and hobbled. At...

Knicks + Refs Will Beat Celtics In NY

This story is probably going to get worse before it gets better. It was bad enough watching Salvatore mangle the officiating in Game 2. I'm expecting a Referee Rout on Friday. I do not believe the...

Baby Was Not Bad; Melo is the Worst; and Other Corrections

I thought Baby played hard in Game 1. He hustled his tail off. He rebounded. He missed shots. It happens. But he did his job. And he was far from the worst player on the floor.The worst player on...

Cold-blooded Question About Doc Rivers

Did the Celtics suffer this season from too few practices because Doc Rivers took too many days off  to go see his kids play, and for other family matters? Is this the price Boston paid for getting...

Optimism Vs. Pessimism & The Halcyon Days Of Yore

Starters Must Not Play Atlanta: Sleep Deprivation => Serious Injury (:studies)

This Friday, the Celtics must play Atlanta in the 2nd of a back-to-back. As was the case in Phoenix, the Cs will likely get NO SLEEP the night before the game: they'll be flying out of San Antonio...

The Problem Is Much Deeper Than Just Offense

This is what Doc has been saying. Every player, every team, goes through shooting slumps. This team sure as hell has lately, and that’s a problem. But that alone can be overcome. The reason they’ve...

Pride, Stubbornness, Trust, and Love

These are the components of what the Celtics call 'Ubuntu.' To me, that term encompasses all of the extra spirit and effort that a team and its players can bring to bear. It's that thing that...

Why Good Offense Cannot Replace Good Defense (and why Shaq must return)

Many of the arguments that have raged over Krstic's value to the team vs. Perk's have centered on K's better offense, vs. Perk's better defense. Arguments have been made that K can COMPENSATE for...

Time Is On Our Side (yes it is)

I am not at all sure that the Celtics care as much about HCA as some believe. We know last year that they did not. It's likely that at this point, HCA has faded in significance and all they care...

Do We Fans Affect Our Team's Performance? (...and players, like KG and Rondo)
