There are three minutes and 25 seconds left in the game. The Celtics are up one, the Garden is electric. The next three and a half minutes might be the most important of the series. The Bulls may not have a better chance to steal a game at the Garden.

Well, that was different. After playing in third gear for most of the first half the Celtics came out in full throttle for the second half and have a 72-71 lead. Paul Pierce led the charge with eight quick points after being held to just four points in the first half. Ray Allen , however, has still...

The Celtics looked lethargic in the first half, but three minutes into the second half they have cut into Chicago's lead and the Garden is alive again. Paul Pierce , in particular, is lighting it up. Now they need to get stops.

A sloppy start, but both teams settled down into an entertaining back and forth kind of a game. As expected, Rajon Rondo and Derrick Rose are going at it like a 1-on-1 game at Rucker Park. Give Rondo the upper hand so far with 12 points. He has been getting into the lane at will and a big reason...

Before Rajon Rondo took the court, Stephon Marbury looked animated as he gave him last minute veteran advice. Kevin Garnett has made a rare appearance on the Celtics bench, too, trading in his sweater/tie combo for a suit. Expect KG to be bellowing plenty of pep talks from the sidelines as well.

It's about 10 minutes from tip time and the Garden is starting to buzz. For marketing/TV purposes, the Celtics handed out green t-shirts to the fans that say, "Boston is a Brotherhood." An image of Kevin Garnett is on the Jumbotron and the crowd started cheering. If anyone was worried about the...

The skeptics have been there since James Posey signed with the New Orleans Hornets . They were there when the Los Angeles Lakers won on Christmas Day, and even more appeared when Kevin Garnett got injured. They don't think the Celtics have what it takes to repeat this season. And that's fine with...

It took Celtics captain Paul Pierce just 20 days to break the 100,000 follower mark on Twitter. Pierce sent his first tweet on March 28 about enjoying the weather in Boston on a day off from practice. Since then he has given away Celtics tickets, spread the word for a potentially-life saving blood...
