The 2008-09 Boston Celtics season was identified by one number, 18, signifying the quest for the team’s next championship. While that figure was never attained, there were other landmark numbers this season. 1: Home games lost in Game 7

For the Celtics, there was something special in the air during Game 7 of last year’s semifinal clash with the Cavaliers.

The Celtics have been through this too many times to feel overwhelmed. Game 7s have become second nature to this team, just four more quarters of basketball before they can advance to the next round.

It may be a different sport, but the Red Sox know this situation very well.

Let me dominate. That was Dwight Howard's message to head coach Stan Van Gundy following the Orlando Magic's Game 5 loss to the Boston Celtics.

Nearly seven minutes without a field goal. Ten percent three-point shooting. Twenty-eight personal fouls. Nine missed free throws.

Last season the Celtics biggest challenge was winning on the road. This season it's more complicated. The Celtics biggest challenge isn't just winning away from the Garden -- it's winning consistently.

There are teams that would crumble without their star player. Their offense would collapse and the defensive pressure would diminish. But losing two marquee players? The game would be over before it even began.

Is it possible that the Orlando Magic have too much of a good thing?

Another half an inch and his performance would have been heroic. Unfortunately for Ray Allen, his efforts were outweighed by a one-point triple-overtime loss.   “Those inches,” he said, “just took that bucket away.”

Put more time on the clock. The Celtics could do this all night.

Don't blame it on Paul Pierce's missed three-pointer.   Don't put it all on Glen Davis' offensive struggles.

On the night that Derrick Rose received his Rookie of the Year award, the Boston Celtics reminded the Chicago Bulls just how young they are.

Derrick Rose is proving the Chicago Bulls can turn to him for just about anything on the court.

For nearly ten years it has been Ray Allen versus Rip Hamilton. The two University of Connecticut standouts have gone hard at one another, so hard in fact that Allen wears a sleeve to protect his arm from Hamilton's swipes.

The Chicago Bulls game plan was clear. The Boston Celtics had the NBA title, the better record, and the homecourt court advantage, but the Bulls knew the edge they had.

Comcast SportsNet broadcasters Mike Gorman and Tommy Heinsohn talked to WEEI.com about the Boston Celtics first-round match up with the Chicago Bulls.

For the first time in five years, Stephon Marbury's schedule is booked through April. Vacations have to be put on hold and summer plans are up in the air. But he doesn't mind. “Any time you get an opportunity to play in the playoffs it's always a great feeling,” Marbury said. “You've extended after the regular season.”

There was no time for a break. Less than 24 hours after hitting a game-winning three in double overtime against the Charlotte Bobcats, Ray Allen was back in the gym. Early.

Here’s what we know so far: Celtics head coach Doc Rivers has conceded homecourt advantage to Cleveland. “We’re not going to catch Cleveland,” he said last week.

Rajon Rondo was 10 years old when Stephon Marbury made his NBA debut. He was 14 when Marbury earned his first All-Star selection. He was a senior in high school when Marbury led the league in assists.
