The last time he was in Eastern conference was being with the Boston Celtics for Rajon Rondo 🏀
So, the Boston Celtics are all alone in third place in the Eastern Conference. All hail, Brad Stevens.
I really like Doc Rivers. Not only because I remember him playing in high school at Proviso East, but because he's proven himself to be a Great guy and one of the best coaches in the NBA. He even had me cheering for the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals a couple of years ago, which would have been impossible for me in the 80's!! I've been a LA Lakers fan for over 30 years, but was actually going to root for the Clippers in the playoffs this season because of Rivers... Well not anymore.
Michael Jordan, Isiah Thomas, Larry Bird, Reggie Miller, and Patrick Ewing were just a few players that were around when the Eastern Conference meant something!!! I look at today's Eastern Conference and it is a straight JOKE!!! You try to compare Lebron to Jordan??? Look at who he's playing!!! Lebron been in the Eastern Conference his entire career and just started winning championship a few years ago!!! Look at who's in the conference with Miami: Orlando (without Dwight Howard), Atlanta Hawks (without Joe Johnson or Dominique Wilkins), Charlotte Bobcats (without Larry Johnson or Alonzo Mourning) and the Washington Wizards (without C. Webb)... So again who is elite amongst those teams??? I even look at old powerhouses like the Boston Celtics and Detroit Pistons!!! They are not the same as they were 5-10 years ago... So again who does Lebron have to play in this weak conference??? Everyone that knows me know that I'm an anti Laker person!!! One thing I'll give Kobe over Lebron is at least Kobe were playin ...
My Washington Wizards romped over the Boston Celtics tonight 118 to 92. With the win the Wizards clinch a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Now I'm REALLY feeling good! Going to bed in a bit, maybe mellow out and watch Forensic Files. Have a blessed night. Love yas!!!
With one win, the Boston Celtics vaulted back within realistic striking distance of the Eastern Conference playoff picture.
Heat looking for 4th straight Finals trip October 22, 2013 MIAMI -- Anytime an NBA franchise is trying to do something only previously done by the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers, that's rarefied air. That's what the Miami Heat are trying to reach this season. After going to the NBA Finals in each of the past three seasons -- winning the last two titles -- the Heat now aim to join an exclusive club. Only the Celtics, from 1957-66 and again from 1984-87, and the Lakers, from 1982-85, have made at least four consecutive trips to the championship series. "It would mean everything, man," said Heat forward Lebron James. "First of all, it means that I'm doing my part and I'm helping our team get better. It would mean everything to our team. That's what we're here for. We work our tails off every day. If it can pay off with another Finals appearance, we'd represent the Eastern Conference the best way we can." Miami was taken to the limit twice in last season's playoffs, needing to prevail in Game 7s to bea ...
(Sports Network) - If the Boston Celtics plan to take one more run at the top spot in the Eastern Conference, they will have to bring their A-game to the Windy City tonight against the Chicago Bulls. The Atlantic Division champion Celtics are three full games behind the Central kings, the Bulls, with just five games left in the regular season for both clubs. A loss tonight by Boston would all but eliminate the Cs in the race for the top seed. Its going to be like Game 1 of a playoff series between teams trying to get to the Finals, Celtics forward Jeff Green said. Weve just got to come out, focus on the defensive end, and be sure were ready to play. Playoffs is like the main course, Boston superstar Kevin Garnett added. This will definitely be the appetizer. In their last encounter on Tuesday the defending East champs dismantled long- time rival Philadelphia when Rajon Rondo finished with 16 points and 13 assists, as the Celtics used a dominant second half to beat the 76ers, 99-82, at TD Garden. Paul Pier ...
For the second time in the past six years, the Boston Celtics have agreed in principle to a trade that may fundamentally alter the axis of power in the Eastern Conference...
The Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs have followed two different paths to the NBA Finals. The defending champion Heat are coming off a grueling seven-game series with the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference Finals, with just two days to recover before the NBA Finals begin Thursday. The Spurs, on the other hand, will have had their feet up for nine full days since sweeping the Memphis Grizzlies in the Western Conference finals on May 27. Miami is a -220 series favorite versus San Antonio (+190) and is a 5.5-point home favorite in Game 1. Teams coming off an emotional Game 7 win haven’t fared that well in the NBA Finals. Since 1993, 10 teams have gone the distance in their respective conference championship and only four of those went on to win the title. Fortunately, for Miami fans, the Heat did just that last season after going the full seven versus the Boston Celtics in the East finals. But as good as Miami was in 2012, it was unable to avoid a letdown in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, like so many oth ...
Game 7 of East finals sets TNT ratings record Posted Jun 4, 2013 4:32 PM New York (AP) -- With the Miami Heat playing in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, fewer television viewers tuned in than last year. The Heat's 99-76 win over the Indiana Pacers on Monday night still drew the highest rating ever for an NBA game on TNT with a 7.1. The 11.5 million viewers were down from 13.3 million for Miami's Game 7 victory over the Celtics last season on ESPN. Boston is a much larger market than Indianapolis, and the Celtics have more of a national following than the Pacers. That decisive game was also more competitive than Monday's, when the Heat led by 15 points at halftime. Ratings measure the percentage of U.S. homes with televisions tuned to a program.- mao ni pasabot nako nimo Bruce James Obiña, Froiland Curato, dako ug halin ang NBA hehehehe
Yes, Boston Celtics got knocked out of NBA play-offs in 6 games in the Eastern Conference quarter-finals. I'm upset about that.

Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett took over in overtime, as the Boston Celtics outlasted the Utah Jazz 110-107. The Celtics' veteran leaders combined for 11 of Boston's 13 points in the extra period, and that proved to be the difference. They were dominant offensively, getting good looks that they just couldn't miss. Utah used a 25-point fourth quarter to overcome a sizable deficit and force overtime, but from there, there was no stopping the Celtics. Boston was playing the final game of their five-game West Coast road trip and got to go home on a high note. Pierce led Boston with 26 points, including seven in overtime. The Celtics placed six players in double figures as well. Gordon Hayward provided the punch off the bench for Utah, getting 26 points of his own. The win pushes the Celtics to 30-27 on the season and to within 2.5 games of the Chicago Bulls and the No. 6 spot in the Eastern Conference. Utah falls to 31-26, but holds steady to their spot as the No. 7 seed in the West. Let's hit the Bleacher Rep ...
New York, Feb. 25, 2013 – The Miami Heat’s Lebron James and the Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant today were named Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Week, respectively, for games played Tuesday, Feb. 19 through Sunday, Feb. 24. James led the Heat to a 4-0 week, which included road wins over the Atlanta Hawks, Chicago Bulls and Philadelphia 76ers. He averaged 23.5 points (fifth in the conference), 9.3 assists (second in the conference), 2.25 steals (third in the conference) and 7.8 rebounds. James posted two double-doubles and a 16-point, 11-assist, 10-rebound triple-double on Feb. 23 at Philadelphia as the Heat became the first club in the East to reach 40 wins. At 40-14 (.741), Miami owns a six-game advantage over the next closest Eastern Conference team, the Indiana Pacers (35-21, .625). Bryant led the Lakers to a 3-0 week, which included wins over the Boston Celtics and Portland Trail Blazers. He finished second in the conference in scoring at 31.3 ppg, and added 7.7 rebounds and 6.0 as ...
The Miami Heat eased to a comfortable win over the Toronto Raptors, while the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics won thrillers on Sunday. Lebron James helped himself to 30 points, eight rebounds and seven assists as Miami won 100-85 at the Air Canada Centre, although the Heat didn't have it all their own way as the Raptors led by six points at half-time. However, the star-studded Heat conceded just 35 points in the second half, with Chris Bosh scoring 22 of his 28 for the match after the main interval. Dwyane Wade added 23 points of his own, making it a combined 81 points from Miami's 'Big Three', as the Heat improved their season record to 30-14 to go half-a-game clear on top of the NBA's Eastern Conference. The Lakers avoided coughing up an 18-point second-half lead when they held off the Detroit Pistons 98-97 at The Palace. Kobe Bryant (18 points, five assists) shot a three-pointer to put the visitors ahead with just over one minute remaining, and the Pistons wasted two shots to win it in the dying ...
Celtics' Rondo tears right ACL; season over BOSTON (AP) -- Boston Celtics star point guard Rajon Rondo will miss the rest of the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. The news came during Boston's 100-98 double-overtime win over the Miami Heat on Sunday in which Ray Allen returned to his old home court for the first time. ''New guys are going to get an opportunity now,'' Boston forwardPaul Pierce said. ''These guys haven't had a chance to really showcase what they can do.'' For the past five seasons, Pierce, Allen and Kevin Garnett made up the Big Three. After Allen signed with the Heat as a free agent in the offseason, Rondo joined that group - and became the team leader with his ability to run the offense. He was chosen as the starting point guard for the Eastern Conference in the All-Star Game in Houston on Feb. 17. Now the Celtics hope he can be ready for the start of next season. ''How far is that?'' coach Doc Rivers said, ''I don't even know how long that is. Eight months? ...
I listened to NBA Analyst Chris Webber last weak go into great lengths to indicate that the Eastern Conference of the NBA is so much worse than the Western Coonfernce. In fact his words were "The East is horrible" & this is not the case. Webber must not be paying attention to the standing. As it stands, the 7th team in the East is the Milwaukee Bucks at 23-19 & if they were in the West, they would be the 7th seed over the Utah Jazz & would push the currently 8th seeded Rockets out of the playoffs. In fact the only team in the East that under 500 & in playoff position are the Boston Celtics at 21-23. So while I know the perception in recent years is that the West is superior to the East, the reality is that the conferences are closer than Webber would lead you to believe from top to bottom.
Im liking this whole ACL tear switch that is happening in the Eastern Conference. As Derrick Rose is preparing to make his return sooner than later, Rajon Rondo is just now starting his journey into the magical world of surgery/rehabilitation. RIP Boston Celtics '12-'13 season

Man, the Eastern Conference is pretty sad this year barring three teams not named the Boston Celtics.

The 5 most Important NBA Moments of 2012: 5: Lebron James' ECF Game 6 vs. Boston. Facing elimination in the Boston Garden after three straight defeats at the hands of the Boston Celtics, LeBron was up against both a potent team and a crowd filled with absolute vitriol. It didn't matter. The Miami Heat were in control from the beginning to end in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals behind LeBron's incredible line of 45 points, 15 rebounds and five assists on 19-of-26 shooting from the field.

Boston Celtics at Brooklyn Nets (-3.5, 187.5) The last time the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics met on Nov. 28, there were three ejections in Brooklyn's 95-83 victory in Boston. While there might not be any ejections or shoving incidents in Tuesday's Christmas Day rematch at the Barclays Center, neither team is feeling cheerful about its quality of play since the night Rajon Rondo shoved Kris Humphires in retaliation for a hard foul on Kevin Garnett in the second quarter. The Nets beat Boston twice in November during an 11-4 start that saw Avery Johnson win Eastern Conference coach of the month. Since then they have had to deal with a foot injury to Brook Lopez and comments from Deron Williams and Joe Johnson about the offense. As a result of those things, Brooklyn has won just eight of 11, though it halted a three-game losing streak with Sunday's 95-92 home win over Philadelphia by getting 22 points from Johnson. Boston has not been much better and since going a season-high three games over .500 on Dec ...
I want the NBA season to end rite now, cause, this is the playoffs matchup will look like after 10-13 games of the regular season, in the eastern conference, seed Miami Heat-seed Charlotte Bobcats, seed Brooklyn Nets-seed Boston Celtics, seed New York Knicks-seed Philadelphia 76ers, and finally the seed Milwaukee Bucks-seed Atlanta Hawks, thats the Eastern Conference playoff picture as of right now. For the Western Conference playoff picture its seed Memphis Grizzlies-seed Los Angles Lakers, seed San Antonio Spurs-seed Utah Jazz, seed Oklahoma City Thunder-seed Denver Nuggets and finally the seed Golden State Warriors-Los Angles Clippers, thats how the NBA playoffs should look like at season end in April, and I hope I'm right as of right now
MIAMI –If they learned nothing from the first 48 minutes of their season, the Boston Celtics know they’re going to need a little more time to become the team that intends to challenge the Miami Heat for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.
Despite the uneven balance of power in the Atlantic Division in years prior, teams in the northeast are looking to make big splash in the Eastern Conference this season. Although the only true title contender in the conference is the Boston Celtics, there are four legitimate playoff teams in the div...
TNT's Charles Barkley: Celtics have legit chance to beat Miami Heat in East The Miami Heat may be the homecoming kings, but the Boston Celtics are still in the court. During a Tuesday afternoon conference call with TNT analysts Reggie Miller, Shaquille O'Neal and Charles Barkley, all three felt strongly that the Celtics would give Lebron James' Heat a strong challenge for the Eastern Conference crown. "LeBron covers up a lot of weaknesses because he's so physically amazing, but Boston to me has a legit chance of beating them," Charles Barkley said. "I think the Miami-Boston series to me is a toss-up. Boston has great depth, they have great size in [Jared] Sullinger and Fab Melo in the draft. I think the most underrated player in the NBA is Jeff Green. I know he didn't play last year, I loved him in Oklahoma City. When he got to Boston he went late into the year so he really never got comfortable. I think he is going to be fantastic." New York has been a focal point with the inaugural season for the Brookl ...
People were wondering why Boston Celtics backup point guard Keyon Dooling suddenly retired. He was only 32 years old and was coming off a trip to the Eastern Conference Finals with a team he appeared to love. He clearly had a lot of basketball left in his body. So, why did he decide to call it quits?Well, on September 27th, Dooling explained it to Jessica Camerato of CSNNE.com.You can find the full article here, and man, is it gut-wrenching.To summarize, Dooling starts off by saying one of the primary reasons he decided to stop playing ball was because he wanted to spend more time with his family. A husband and a father of four, the daily grind of being a professional basketball player caused him to miss some momentous occasions in the lives of his kids. He didn't want that to happen anymore.Then, Dooling dropped a bomb on all of us: He said he was sexually abused as a youth. That is obviously devastating enough as it is and certainly weighs like an 800-pound gorilla on your shoulders. It wasn't just that ...

I haven't engaged in a written fit of pique on this page in a while, but here goes - I've gotten steadily more aggravated in reading Jack McCallum's book about the Dream, on one topic, particular. People expressed (and still do) expressed some surprise about Isiah Thomas being excluded from that now legendary team. Let's start with a given, sports is competition, and competition engenders all manner of emotions, including those of being disrespected and slighted. As a Bulls fan, I grudgingly respected the back-to-back Detroit Pistons championship teams (1989-1990), even while decrying their unwritten but obvious "Jordan Rules" strategy of knocking Michael Jordan around like a punching to get him and the Bulls off their game. I'll backtrack a bit here, there is a rite de passage of sorts for young teams having to overcome their rivals. With the Pistons, at least in the Eastern Conference, it was the Boston Celtics, led by Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, and Robert Parrish. Strike one for Zeke in his impolitic ...
Celtics, Heat play opening night.Lebron James, Dwyane Wade and the Heat will raise their title banner at home on Oct. 30 against the Boston Celtics as part of an opening-night tripleheader, meaning Ray Allen's first game with Miami will come against his former club and in a rematch of last season's seven-game Eastern Conference Finals.

The Miami Heat and Boston Celtics will renew their battle for Eastern Conference supremacy on opening night of the 2012-13 NBA season, according to the schedule released Thursday.
By Tim Reynolds, Associated Press MIAMI (AP) -- Ray Allen lingered on the court for a bit after his Boston Celtics lost Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals to the Miami Heat last month, shaking hands and offering congratulations.
Breaking up is hard to do, just ask Boston Celtics fans. Hoops fans in Beantown are having a particularly hard time with Ray Allen’s decision to sign with the Celtics’ chief rival in the Eastern Conference - the Miami Heat.
Heading into this season, the Boston Celtics look to be one of the better teams in the Eastern Conference, let alone the league...
The Heat lost the opening game 88–80 and got off to a 9–8 start. Much of the speculation was that Spoelstra could lose his job and that Heat president Pat Riley would return as coach. However after a "players only" meeting the team began to gel as they pulled together a 12-game win streak (10 of them by double-digits) and limited the opposition under 100 points in all those games. On January 27, 2011, via fan voting, Dwyane Wade (guard) was selected to be starters for the Eastern Conference at the All-Star Game. A few days later, forward Chris Bosh was selected as a reserve, The Heat finished with a 58–24 record, third best in team history and a second overall seed, behind the Chicago Bulls who had the NBA's best record. In the NBA Playoffs, Miami defeated the Philadelphia 76ers in the First round, Boston Celtics in the Conference Semifinals, and Bulls in the Conference Finals, all in 5 games respectively. The Heat then reached the 2011 NBA Finals for the first time since 2006 in a rematch again ...
The Heat started the 2009–10 season by going 7–1 through their first 8 games, but were inconsistent the rest of the way, and were at 35–34 through the first 69 games. On January 5, 2010, the Heat traded Chris Quinn to the New Jersey Nets for a 2012 second draft pick which allowed the team to sign recently released guard Rafer Alston. The team picked up the pace late, going 12–1 in the final 13 games to earn the 5th seed in the East, finishing 47–35 and making an improvement for the second consecutive season. The Heat lost in five games in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs against the Boston Celtics. The Heat finished the season ranking 15th in the NBA in total attendance with 726,935.

Free agent guard Jason Terry is closing in on a three-year contract with the Boston Celtics, sources close to the situation confirmed Tuesday.
Rumor: Ray Allen to the Heat?In recent years, the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat have developed a pretty fierce Eastern Conference rivalry.
Lebron James went for 45 points and 15 rebounds against the Boston Celtics in a must-win Game 6 in the Eastern Conference Finals. Nice night. ESPN reacted as though Wilt had returned to drop 100 again.-lol- MJ’s playoff high was 63 points, against the Larry Bird-Kevin McHale Celtics of 1986. He averaged 33.4 in the playoffs, an NBA record, and had 38 games with 40 or more. Nice career. Lebron James is freak of nature-gifted, maybe more physically talented than Jordan. But Jordan was the better player. James will have to expand his ring collection to sway the argument. Untill Then Please STOP WITH THE COMPARISONS!!!

OKC's bracket in the Western Conference was battle testing while Miami's bracket in the Eastern Conference was child's play. OKC ran through the 2011 (Mavs), 2009/2010 (Lakers), and 2005 (Spurs) NBA champs while Miami struggled against the 8th seeded 76ers, the inexperienced Pacers, and an old rusted out Boston Celtics. There is no way Lebron and Wade are going to beat OKC.
MIAMI – These Miami Heat were constructed to crumble this proud, old champion, and now that was happening in the ferocious final minutes of Game 7: jab, jab, jab and finally a left hook to deliver the Boston Celtics onto their backs. Lebron James. Dwyane Wade. Chris Bosh. Here were the Heat’s Big Three chasing the Celtics’ out of the gym, out of the season and maybe out of those Boston uniforms. James. Wade. Bosh. Together, they were downright devastating in the final minutes of this Eastern Conference-clinching victory. No fourth quarter – no NBA Finals – for old men.

For 27 quarters plus two overtime sessions, the Boston Celtics had hung with the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals. Aging, outmanned, undersized and overmatched, the Celtics had managed, all the same, to get to the brink of an improbable trip to the 2012 NBA Finals.

Well. This is a sad way to end the year but it was still a fantastic season for the Boston Celtics! Starting the season as a team with too much age and nothing left in the tank and with slim playoff hopes the celtics went on and won the Atlantic Division and went onto the Eastern Conference Finals to take the best team in the eastern conference to 7 games..it's been a great year and a even greater era !!

Who are you hoping wins the Eastern Conference tonight so OKC Thunder can become the next National Champions?! Go Thunder :) Miami Heat or Boston Celtics?
Chris Bosh could start Game 6 Michael Wallace [ARCHIVE] ESPN.com | June 6, 2012 MIAMI -- With his team facing playoff elimination, Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Wednesday he might consider starting Chris Bosh for Game 6 against the Boston Celtics, but even if Bosh comes off the bench, Spoelstra certainly would have a larger role for the All-Star forward in his second game back from injury. Bosh was limited to just 14 minutes and didn't play at all in the fourth quarter of Tuesday's 94-90 loss to the Celtics, who carry a 3-2 series lead into Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Thursday in Boston. "I'm still going through that thought process," Spoelstra said after the Heat wrapped up practice in Miami before traveling to Boston. "But I think he'll be able to handle a bigger load of minutes, and it'll be based more on how he'll feel during the game." Bosh had nine points and seven rebounds, including six offensive, over a series of short stints in his first game since he suffered a strained ab ...

Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Paul Pierce and Lebron James fouled out in overtime, but the Boston Celtics still had Rajon Rondo and the Miami Heat still had Dwyane Wade. Rondo scored the go-ahead bucket and Wade missed a three-pointer at the buzzer Sunday night, giving the Celtics a 93-91 win and tying the Eastern Conference Finals at two games apiece. The game went to overtime only after Miami came back from an 18-point deficit in the first half, when Pierce was knocking down shots, Ray Allen was hitting three-pointers and Rondo was dissecting the defense with sharp passes. Even Keyon Dooling got in on the act. Indeed, all was right with the Celtics until the end of third quarter when the Heat started to make a run to turn a lopsided game into a dog fight. James hit a tying three-pointer in the final minute of regulation in front of a stunned TD Garden crowd, but also passed on the final possession to Udonis Haslem, who missed a jumper. In the end, Boston emerged with its second straight win and will hea ...

My column on the Boston Celtics, who may now be the favorites to win the Eastern Conference:
My old school team the Philadelphia 76ers got it done against my Eastern Conference arch rivals Boston Celtics and it felt very good especially since our home team is passing popcorn and liquid refreshments (Atlanta Hawks). Old school is still in while home town is out:)

I want to take this opportunity and thank the Boston Celtics for allowing the Chicago Bulls to become the seed in the Eastern Conference
The chances of the Miami Heat capturing the top seed in the Eastern Conference are remote, and they may just continue to rest their starters to prepare for a playoff run.
Boston Celtics win the Atlantic Division, guaranteed at least being the 4 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
Here come these Boston Celtics one final time in the Eastern Conference, one more run for old time's sake. -Adrian Wojnarowski
We know u guys won tonight but sorry u (New York Knicks) still in 7th position in Eastern Conference. Boston Celtics still hold a solid 4th position in Eastern. Don't celebrate yet. Lmao!
Watching Miami/Chicago made me wonder one thing.are the Boston Celtics the best team in the Eastern Conference??
Losing to Boston Celtics twice in April with a score of 72-91 and 107-115 respectively, then losing to Chicago Bulls today 86-96. Since the start of April, the Miami Heats have not win the matches against playoff teams in the Eastern Conference with only one win over the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference while losing to Memphis Grizzlies. The Heats are thought to be the best team. I think better get your act together if not can start trading players liao.

My Boston Celtics stands 4th in the Eastern Conference. Our record is okay (30-24), we are saving our energy for the playoffs
Back In The Mix April 6 -- The best player on the hottest team in the league since the All-Star break is not Lebron James or Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant or Kevin Love. With all respect to those other MVP candidates, the honor belongs to Rajon Rondo of the Boston Celtics, whose MVP campaign from earlier this season was derailed by injuries and a Celtics' swoon. But Rondo and the Celtics have come on since the break -- 15-7 since All-Star Weekend in Orlando -- and have plenty of teams in the Eastern Conference fearing for their playoff lives. No team in the East can boast more championship experience on its roster, and the Lakers and Spurs are the only teams in the league capable of matching the Celtics in that department. The true beauty of Rondo's surge, and in turn the Celtics' post-All-Star rise, has been the unselfishness of their All-Star floor leader. Rondo's assists have spiked since the break (9.5 before and 12.6 since) while his points have taken a sizeable dip (14.8 before and 10.0 since). Rondo av ...
