Before the Spurs and Thunder met in the playoffs this year, there were 2 certainties: Kevin Durant should take all the important shots at the end of the 4th for the Thunder, and Russell Westbrook should assist all those shots in the 4th for the Thunder. This was basically what fans of the NBA wanted, [...]
Obviously most fans would immediately say no to that question. After all, KG was considered one of the 5 best players in the league for something like 10 years while he was with the Timberwolves. He made 10 All-Star trips, and won an MVP in 2004. He led the league in rebounding in 04′ and [...]
Every game past Game 5 is important in a playoff series, but Game 6 is especially important for the Celtics because if they lose this game, this series all of a sudden changes from a stepping stone to round 2 into an actual challenge to the Celtics. No one in the media has thought about [...]
This is a far cry from some teams that will wilt and fall apart when one of their key players does a stupid act and misses a game (yes I’m talking about Stoudamire and the Knicks). Rondo’s team used his suspension as a motivator to bring their A-Game and win what was termed an L [...]
The Good – The Celtics showed heart after a dismal 1st half. They brought it within 4 with a minute left and were on a good roll.
The Bad – The ref mad a horrible call on a loose ball with 2 seconds left on the shot clock. The ref called an unacceptable foul on [...]
Derrick Rose just left the Sixers’ playoff game with an apparent left knee injury. He came down funny after jumping and immediately clutched his lower leg. He wasn’t able to leave under his own power, and the situation didn’t look good as he was helped off the court.
Rose has battled injuries to his leg [...]
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.
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 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 – The Celtics went into Miami and took a game very few outside their locker thought they could win. Previous to this game, the Heat had only lost 3 at home. The Celtics were also coming off an emotional win against Philly that might have made them let up for this game. But [...]
