Call it fatigue. Call it sluggishness, or being outplayed or a combination all three. But the Denver Nuggets showed the Celtics Friday night that they are human on their home court. They hadn't lost at home in the regular season since last March 26 to Philadelphia, a string of 11 straight wins on...

In a move that seemed inevitable, the Boston Celtics assigned rookie J.R. Giddens to their NBA Development League affiliate Utah Flash on Saturday. The Celtics selected Giddens out of New Mexico with the 30th overall pick in this year's draft. That night Celtics president Danny Ainge and head coach...

That was Doc Rivers after the Celtics 94-85 loss to the Nuggets, Friday night. Miserable because, as Rivers elaborated, "We're not happy with the way we're playing. We're winning games, but we're not playing well enough to be the winner." There are those who will say it was bound to happen. That...

We're back for the second half with the C's down 48-42. This will be yet another interesting second half as I am becoming more and more intrigued by the Celtics ability to dig themselves out of a hole. It's not the way you want to play every night, obviously, and I know the myth is "It's the NBA,...

As faithful readers know, I am not of the mind that the loss of James Posey is the huge deal that some make it out to be. However, credit George Karl with an interesting lineup that specifically exploited the lack of a legit backup small forward--like James Posey. In the second quarter, Karl used...

At the half ... Nuggets 48, Celtics 42 SECOND QUARTER WRAP: First half woes continue for the Celtics. A late second quarter push got them back within six, but it doesn't erase the fact they were outscored 25-13.

We are live and courtside for tonight's game between the Celtics and Nuggets. Is everyone still a little wrung out from the Comeback on Monday and the Epic on Wednesday? We'll see how strong the Celtics legs are, but then, they seem to have an extra gear in the fourth quarter so we promise not to...

What was that sound that caught my sabermetrically-inclined ear in the runway before tonight's game? Why it was George Karl , coach of the Denver Nuggets , talking about "efficiency."Â Or, more specifically he was talking about recently acquired Chauncey Billups . Someone asked the question about...
