Celtics notebook: Rookies feel more heat as Cavaliers turn up defensive pressure

Shamrock Notes: How to lose a game in 120 seconds

Shamrock Notes: How to lose a game in 120 seconds

The Boston Celtics game 4 defeat can be boiled down to two uninspiring minutes of basketball In about two minutes you can make a Hot Pocket, a cup of coffee, listen to a song, or iron your favorite shirt. In Game 4, the Celtics showed you could also blow a playoff game. I’m not a fan of hyper-analyzing one play or bad call as the culprit of a team’s demise, but I do think that those things together, in conjunction, can flip a game, no matter when they happen. A day after the Celtics loss, Coach Stevens said he thought the Celtics lost the game in the final 6 minutes. Just a quick...

Bulpett: Don’t call it a must win but Game 5 is just that for the Celtics

Subtitle: C’s can’t go back to Cleveland down 3-2Technically, the Celtics can lose Game 5 at home and still win the series.Not really.After watching what the Cavaliers did to the Celts in Cleveland, and what the Celts did to themselves, one would need dogmatic loyalty and maybe even a trip to the liquor cabinet to believe the Bostonians could stave off elimination in a Game 6 on the banks of the Cuyahoga River.The Cavs looked ready for divorce on Causeway Street, but, with help from the C’s, they renewed their vows at home.So tonight is looking rather Game 7-ish for the Brad Boys.
