NBA Playoffs 2013 - Boston Celtics

Celtics go down swinging, fall to Knicks 88-80

Down 22 in the 4th, it was all over. Until it wasn't. Until Avery Bradley took over. But it just wasn't enough.

What's wrong with the Knicks offense?

Too much hero ball, not enough trust, ...does this sound familiar?

Shippin' it up to Boston, Celtics win 92-86

The Celtics refuse to go quietly into that dark night.

Kevin Garnett is defiant to the end

The term "unique" doesn't seem like a strong enough word for Kevin Garnett. He's defiant.

Die another day - Can the Celtics win again?

The Celtics staved off elimination on Sunday. Can they do it again?

The irreplaceable Truth

Pierce has at least one more game in a Celtics uniform. Whenever he does leave, he'll leave a void in Boston.

Brandon Bass was "the star of the game"

Carmelo Anthony got his points, but it took a lot of work and a lot of shots to get them.

JET Soars in OT as Celtics Hold On By a Thread

If you wanted heart, you got it. Paul Pierce, Jeff Green and Jason Terry combined for 73 points as they led the Celtics to victory over the New York Knicks in a thrilling 97-90 overtime win.

JR Smith suspended for game 4

Predictably, JR Smith was suspended for his elbow to Jason Terry's head.

Done.

Down 3 games to none, the series, season, and perhaps the era are effectively done.

Series shifts to Boston for pivotal game 3

Celtics return home for first time since Marathon bombing looking to turn series around.

Home is where the heart is

The Celtics are just a flat out better team at home.

C's not done yet

How do we now the Celtics are still alive in their first-round series with the Knicks? Well, 10 reasons.

What's happening after the half?

I don't have any more answers than Doc does, but here are several factors that we at least have to look at.

What happened to Courtney Lee?

From Doc recruiting him at his house this summer to falling into Doc's doghouse, it has been an interesting journey for Courtney Lee.

Kevin Garnett Suffers Hip Injury, Will Play Friday

Garnett's injury will not hold him out of Game 3 versus the Knicks.

Awful offense

The Celtics have scored 101 points in the 2 first halves of this series. The problem is that in the 2nd halves they've scored just 48 points.

A Dominant Third Quarter Leads Knicks to 87-71 Win

J.R. Smith struck a pose after drilling a 37-foot buzzer-beater in the first quarter. That image truly captures how things went for the New York Knicks tonight, as they dominated the Boston Celtics, taking a 2-0 series lead with an 87-71 victory.

Knicks and Celtics is most intriguing matchup

The opening round of the 2013 NBA Playoffs features an unusually high number of intriguing matchups, but Paul Flannery explains why Knicks-Celtics takes the cake.

Celtics need something (anything) from the bench

You are only as good as your best players, but when your best players are carrying the entire load the entire time, they might get a little tired by the end of the game.

Bass pitches perfect game, but could get better

Yes, that title doesn't make any sense whatsoever. But it kinda does too.

The folly of faith

At the end of the day, I'd rather go through life believing in my team and perhaps getting let down rather than not believing and being proven right.

More Kevin Garnett please

After all these years, it still comes down to Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.

Concerns Come to Life in Game One for Celtics

The lack of an orchestrator on offense and consistency on the bench gave the Celtics problems in game one against the Knicks. This was the concern heading into the playoffs and that worry proved to be true. Here, the Celtics problems are discussed.
