Just when I was convinced that Ray Allen was a classless diva, who left Boston for the Celtics’ arch rivals because he was trying to stick it to the fans, he goes and does something classy.
Unlike my hero Lloyd Christmas, Ray didn’t totally redeem himself. But he did help mend some fences.
The Good – Rajon Rondo got 15 assists, 12 before the half, to lock up the assists title for the season. He ended the season with an average of 11.7, the highest since John Stockton’s 12.3 in 1995. He joined elite Celtics company as Bob Cousy was the last Celtic to win the assists title.
With what could be an irrelevant or very relevant week coming up for the Celtics, Doc has a choice to make. Does he go for home-court against the Hawks, or rest his starters for the next two games in preparation for the playoffs.
That the Hawks are going to be the Celtics opponent in the [...]
The Good – The Celtics rested the Big 3 and Rondo and played mostly their subs. In what could have been a complete blowout considering the Hawks played everyone, turned into an exciting game. The Celtics kept it within 1 point till late in the game, and the subs got some needed burn to prepare [...]
The Celtics will be adding free agent center Sean Williams, who was waived in March by the Mavericks. The former BC player has had his ups and mostly downs in the NBA and has rightfully earned his reputation as un-coachable. One good thing about this pickup is the Celtics have now officially waived goodbye to [...]
The Good – Pierce had another great game as he scored 29 points and 14 assists, a career high. He put a dagger in the Magic’s chances by nailing his go to jumper on the elbow with 7.6 seconds left. Over the last two games he has scored 72 points and seems to be playing [...]
The Good – If you ever wondered what a post Big 3 Celtics’ team would look like with Rondo at the helm, last night was a good example. Pierce, KG and Ray all sat out (Ray is still nursing a sore ankle) to give them rest on a brutal 3 games on 3 days stretch. [...]
The Good – Bradley showed he can ball on the offensive side as he went off in the 3rd quarter, scoring 11 points, and helping the Celtics build a 13 point lead. He at one point hit back to back to back 3 pointers.
The Bad – Gerald Green pisses me off every time I [...]
The Good – The Celtics clawed back into this thing in the 4th quarter, cutting a 15 point deficit down to 1 point after a Pierce 3 with less than a minute in the game. But DeMar DeRozan DeStroyed any chance the Celtics had of getting back into it by sinking 4 key free throws [...]
Tonight starts the lockout induced back-to-back-to-back 3 games in 3 days fiasco. We all have been looking at this series of games with trepidation since they were announced in December.
Yes its true every team has basically been given one of these stretches of 3 games, but with this Celtics team, with its veteran legs, [...]
