Slightly Disappointed There Isn't HORSE This Weekend

Posted by GinosJungle on February 17, 2011 at 5:29 PM Comments comments (1)

For the past 2 years the NBA implemented a game of HORSE to kick off All Star Saturday Night. Although it seemed kind of weird at first, I got used to it and started to really like it (especially considering Rondo was in it last year). I thought it was a good way to ease into the main events.. Kind of an "appetizer" if you will.


In case...

"Halfway Point" Bold Prediction: Heat in ECF?

Posted by GinosJungle on February 17, 2011 at 11:42 AM Comments comments (0)

So far everyone is dead set on the Miami Heat playing in the Eastern Conference Finals and it is split about 50/50 on who would win that series: The Celtics or the Heat? To that I say, "Hold it a minute!"


Bold Prediction: The Eastern Conference Finals will be a matchup between the two teams who h...

What Last Years Team Would Have Done With Tonights Game

Posted by GinosJungle on February 16, 2011 at 10:40 PM Comments comments (0)

I know it seems so very long ago, but last year at this point we were suffering through a Celtics season. Every night was a disaster, and every game was another reason why we should give up on any hopes of them doing anything in the playoffs. Well this year is different (so far.. I'm not about to jinx anything)..


The Celtics had a big lead early, but that was quickly evaporated by the half as the Nets and Celtics went into halftime tied at 46. In the blink of an eye New Je...

Why Not Just Give Shaq Some Serious Rest?

Posted by GinosJungle on February 16, 2011 at 6:48 PM Comments comments (0)

After tonights game Shaq has missed the past 6 games. This rest can be coupled with the fact that the All Star break is coming up and make you say, "Yeah.. That's just what he needs! That's some good rest right there!" And I agree, but I disagree. I think the real guy the Celtics need, and the guy who will surely help them get a championship, is t...

Ray Allen Hopefully Not Using All His Makes

Posted by GinosJungle on February 16, 2011 at 9:11 AM Comments comments (0)

This year Ray Allen is shooting the ball with unbelievable accuracy. It's one thing for a guy to shoot as many 3's as Eddie House did back in the day and to make 44.4% of them; it's quite another for Ray to shoot as many as he does and to make 45.6% of them. In 2008-09 Eddie put up 340 attempts when he had his best year shooting from behind the arc...

Not About To Shrug Off 40-14

Posted by GinosJungle on February 16, 2011 at 12:32 AM Comments comments (2)

If the Celtics go on and win tonight at home against the New Jersey Nets, they will head into the All Star break with a record of 40-14. That will be good for the 2nd best record in the league, and top in the Eastern Conference.


The plus side: That is a very good record to have considering all of the injuries they have had to battle through. On the flip side of the All Sta...

Celtics Fans Are The Worst.. In A Good Way

Posted by GinosJungle on February 15, 2011 at 4:28 PM Comments comments (0)

When you go to a Celtics game you will see a lot of signs and you will hear a lot of yelling. Although some of it is supportive of the team, some of it is also bashing the opponents (I know.. Shocking, right?).. Well before opening night LeBron James said that Boston was one of the toughest places to play because of all the talking the fans do. In a recent article on how the Heat get booed and such at every road game, I took these bits with a sense of pride:

Dealing with he...

Bet You Didn't Expect Injuries Like This!

Posted by GinosJungle on February 15, 2011 at 11:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Coming into this year we knew there would be a lot of injuries the Celtics would have to deal with. It really wasn't much of a surprise last Thursday when the C's had 9 guys dressed and ready to play in the 3rd quarter against the Lakers. That's just how it's going to be. The problem will be making sure there isn't 9 guys suited and ready to play in lat...

As You Know.. Both Teams Must Win For It To Be A Rivalry...

Posted by GinosJungle on February 13, 2011 at 8:11 PM Comments comments (0)

I dont know what it is about the Miami Heat, but for whatever reason they simply can not beat the Boston Celtics. Whether it be the Dwyane Wade led Heat, or the Wade / James led Heat, they can't seem to figure out how to beat the C's home or away.


The Celtics have won 4 in a row against the Heat leading back to last years playoffs. Overall the C's were 7-1 against them last year with the...
