The Good – The Celtics got huge help from Brandon Bass in overtime when he made 5 straight points, and helped the Celtics get some separation in overtime.
The Bad – The Wizards are not a good team. Yet the Celtics have been making them look like a playoff squad over the past two games. [...]
The Good – The Celtics put a game in the win column for the first time this season after starting 0-2. Although the Wizards are not a team they should be bragging about beating.
The Bad – The Celtics were not able to separate themselves from the Wizards in the 2nd half, and actually were [...]
The Good – KG had a huge game for the Celtics as he scored 26 tough points on 11-20 shooting on a night when for most of the game Rondo and Pierce had trouble making buckets. He gave a huge lift to the C’s at the end of the 3rd quarter when he had [...]
The Good – Dooling and Ray brought some much needed distance shooting for the Celtics throughout the game. Dooling came into this series as basically an afterthought at the guard position for the Celtics. But following a great Game 3, he came up huge for the Celtics in Game 4 with clutch 3′s. He went [...]
The Good – Marquis Daniels played a huge 18 minutes for the Celtics who needed someone from the bench to step up after heavy minutes from the starters in Game 2. He had 9 points and 5 rebounds and played tough defense on the wing. He also had a plus/minus of +14, which was [...]
The Good – Rondo came up with his best stretch of the playoffs so far right after Pierce fouled out with 4 minutes to go. It looked like the offense might have to go through just KG, but Rondo took over the scoring responsibilities by getting 9 points in those final 4 minutes. He hit [...]
Back in 1981, Larry Bird still didn’t have the first name “legend” and Julius Erving was on top of his game. The Celtics started the series down 3-1, basically a death sentence in the NBA playoffs. But Bird brought the team back from the dead, and led the Celtics to a Conference Finals win, and [...]
The Good – Rondo had his best game of the second round and possibly of the playoffs (he didn’t get a triple-double, but those are a dime a dozen to him now anyway). He basically carried the Celtics in the 1st quarter when the team looked a little sluggish and KG was on the bench [...]
On Monday the Celtics lost home-court advantage to the Sixers by playing one of their ugliest games of the year (the 2nd and 3rd quarters were as bad a viewable experience as watching Shaq doing his analysis on TNT). But the good thing about a playoff series is that its momentum can change after a [...]
The Good – KG played what could be considered his best and most clutch game as a Celtic. Without KG playing the way he did, the Celtics would be playing Game 7 in Atlanta instead of Game 1 against the Sixers on Saturday. KG had a ridiculous stat line that somehow still doesn’t come close [...]
