The playoffs do strange things to Celtics fans

Have you seen the ads yet? Verizon Wireless just dropped their “Can you hear me now?” ad campaign in favor of “Can you see me now?” One question; is it too late to get the old douche back? Links: [Ebaumsworld.com]: What Not to do at a Playoff Game

Around the Rim: Gasol-ine Pau-ered

1. Pau, right in the kisser! With so much talk about the “Big Three” from the Eastern Conference’s top seed, it would be easy to forget about the trio of superstars on the West’s No. 1 team, but they won’t let you. Even without their big man Andrew Bynum, the Lakers took a 1-0 lead […]

Around the Rim: Big time battle in the Lone Star State

1. Suns rise to the occasion With 12 minutes left in the game, San Antonio looked like they might once again crush the hopes of the Suns, but Shaquille O’Neal and Steve Nash didn’t allow that to happen. Phoenix ran out of SA with a 96-79 victory after outscoring the Spurs 24-11 in the fourth […]

Around the Rim: Dallas continues to lose its grip on a playoff appearance

1. Free fallin’ Dallas thought trading for Jason Kidd would give them the magic they needed to keep pace with the other big time teams in the West. However, with Dirk Nowitzki riding the pine with an injury, the Mavericks are now in danger of becoming the team to miss the postseason after falling to […]

Around the Rim: Welcomed back with a win

1. The race is on! The Dallas Mavericks’ playoff hopes took a serious hit on Thursday after Denver grabbed a 118-105 victory in the Mile High City. As of now, Dallas is still sitting in the seventh slot out West, but it’s just a hair away from falling completely out as the Nuggets, currently in […]

Around the Rim: Celtics blast past Phoenix

1. Celtics cruise to victory The Suns were tied with the Celtics at halftime of Wednesday night’s game, but then Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce got nasty. K.G. ripped off 30 points in the contest and Pierce racked up 12 of his 27 points in the final period to give Boston a 117-97 victory. The […]

Around the Rim: Double-double trouble

1. Spurs win in battle of big men The Spurs appear to be completely over their mini slump. On Monday, they took care of the Magic in Orlando, winning by 10 points, 107-97, behind a game-high 28 points from Manu Ginobili off the bench. Michael Finley chipped in 24 while Tony Parker posted 11 points […]

Around the Rim: Not in our house!

1. Detroit outshines Phoenix In what very well could be a preview of this year’s NBA Finals, the Pistons proved they still got it when it comes to breaking Shaq’s heart. The Suns were on a seven-game winning streak going into Detroit on Monday, but Detroit posted 14 points in overtime to take a 110-105 […]

Around the Rim: Back to where it all began

1. A.I. got his sundae, but no cherry on top Allen Iverson was welcomed back to Philadelphia with open arms on Wednesday night. The Answer returned for the first time since being traded to Denver back in December of 2006 and it was almost like he never left. Iverson scored a game-high 32 points, dished […]

Around the Rim: The streak snappers

1. It’s over! Despite reeling off a 22-game win streak, questions regarding the Rocket’s legitimacy amongst the league’s elite are still floating around. There are no such questions surrounding Boston. The Celtics put an end to Houston’s record-chasing run in remarkable fashion on Tuesday night, pounding the Rockets in their own gym by 20 points, […]
