The Boston Celtics will play at the TD Garden for the first time Friday night since the events of the Boston Marathon.
The Celtics need a pick-me-up after losing the opening two games of their first-round playoff series against the Knicks. The city of Boston could use one, too, after a traumatic two weeks of bombings and manhunts and grieving.
Kevin Garnett scored eight of his 12 points in the fourth quarter and added 11 rebounds, and the Boston Celtics overcame poor shooting to beat the Chicago Bulls 71-69 Wednesday night.
Carmelo Anthony said Tuesday he lost his cool after Kevin Garnett said things to him that he feels shouldn’t be said to “another man.”
Luol Deng and Carlos Boozer scored 21 points apiece, Joakim Noah had a triple-double and the Chicago Bulls beat the Boston Celtics 100-89 on Tuesday night.
We get it, Kevin, you’re a DIRECTV guy.
Kevin Garnett finished with 26 points and 11 rebounds, Pierce scored 19 and the Celtics moved one win away from the East title by beating the Heat 94-90 on Tuesday night, taking a 3-2 lead in the series.
LeBron James scored 34 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, Dwyane Wade scored 23 and the Miami Heat pulled off the biggest playoff comeback in franchise history to beat the Boston Celtics 115-111 in overtime on Wednesday night.
Rajon Rondo helped his aging teammates keep their season going Saturday night, finishing with 18 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds in Game 7 against the 76ers to lead the Celtics to an 85-75 victory and into an Eastern Conference finals matchup with the Miami Heat.
Paul Pierce battled through another tough shooting night to score 36 points and the Boston Celtics wiped out Atlanta’s 11-point lead in the second half even without Rajon Rondo, stunning the Hawks 87-80 on Tuesday in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference playoffs.
Rajon Rondo recorded a triple-double with 32 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds to lead the Boston Celtics to a 95-91 win Sunday over the Chicago Bulls, who were without star guard Derrick Rose.
NBA owners and players have failed again to get close to a labor deal, and union president Derek Fisher says he anticipates the remainder of the preseason to be canceled.
The Miami Heat made quick work of the reigning Eastern Conference champions by defeating Boston 4-1 in a second-round playoff series. Although the series lasted only five games, it was grueling from start to finish.
No one could have predicted that the defending conference champions would be in such deep holes so early in the playoffs. The Lakers and Celtics are both down two games to none and find themselves in must-win situations.
The NBA All-Star reserves were announced Thursday night. Many were hoping to see Carlos Boozer, Luol Deng or Joakim Noah named to the team. Unfortunately, those hoping to see more Bulls joining rose will be disappointed.
The Chicago Bulls have lost the previous two games while the Celtics were on a four-game winning streak. That changed Saturday when the Bulls blocked the Celtics from getting ahead and taking a 90-79 victory.
The Chicago Bulls struggled against the Boston Celtics. Derrick Rose scored 20 points and Carlos Boozer scored 12, his second game this season. Kevin Garnett lead the Celtics to a 104-92 win over the Bulls.
Carlos Boozer’s Bulls debut was not what he or any one else expected. Boozer and the Bulls looked out of sync and were dominated by the Orlando Magic. The Bulls try to get back on track in Boston.
Tom Thibodeau faced his old team, the Celtics, Friday night. The Bulls made a strong second half push for the lead, tying at 96 points to put the game into over time. Too many mistakes by the Bulls in over time resulted in Boston claiming the win.
Tom Thibodeau was the associate head coach of the Boston Celtics before he became head coach for the Bulls. After losing to the Knicks Thursday, the Bulls and Celtics will renew their rivalry in Boston.
