As “statement games” go, the Nets’ 102-97 victory over Boston last night should probably be declared in a whisper.
Craving a victory over a top team, all the Brooklyn Nets needed was someone to make a couple of big shots. That’s one of the reasons they traded for Joe Johnson.
Even with two healthy feet, Lopez is no more than a statue defending the pick-and-roll. I found his attempts to corral Knicks point guard Raymond Felton last night a useful teaching tool to my 13-year-old son as to what not to do in those situations.
Miami Heat won their second straight Eastern Conference title by beating the Boston Celtics 101-88 in Game 7 on Saturday night.
It’s a spot that not many believed they would be in, but the Boston Celtics are just one win away from the NBA Finals.
These days, even the tiniest thing can quickly turn into an Internet phenomenon.
I want to take a moment and unplug the NBA playoffs from reality.
The Boston Celtics nearly let Game 4 slip away, but held on to tie the Eastern Conference Finals at 2-2 as they head back to Miami for Tuesday night’s Game 5.
It is looking like Miami Heat Big 3 will be intact for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals Tuesday night.
Felger and Massarotti were joined by Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers to talk about Game 1, the technicals in last nights games, and dealing with the injuries.
The Celtics handled the Heat rather easily during the regular season going 3-1. The Heat won in the second game of the season while the Celtics took the latter three, but with one of those was a meaningless contest at the end of the season when playoff seeding had already been set.
Brandon Bass scored 18 of his postseason career-high 27 points in the third quarter on Monday night as the Boston Celtics pulled away from the Philadelphia 76ers to win 101-85 and take a 3-2 lead in their Eastern Conference semifinal series.
He may be battling an MCL sprain, but it certainly didn’t look like the injury was bothering Paul Pierce on Wednesday night.
Kevin Garnett was a man possessed in the Celtics 83-80 Game 6 victory over the Hawks, and you can thank Hawks owner Michael Gearon and the Boston media for calling him ‘Old’ for some extra fuel to his fire.
The Celtics couldn’t shake the pesky Hawks in Tuesday night’s 87-86 Game 5 loss in Atlanta, with some poor execution doing them in at the end.
