Celtics Win Their 12th Straight

Posted by Ace Staff on December 8th, 2008

The Indiana Pacers continue to give the Boston Celtics trouble.  The Celtics needed overtime to avoid their 2nd loss of the year to Indiana, one of only two teams to beat Boston this year.  The Celtics relied on Ray Allen’s 35 points to take the 122-117 win at the Canseco Fieldhouse.  The win was the 12th in a row for Boston putting them at 20-2 on the year.  Ray Allen’s season high 35 points were just what the Celtics needed.  Allen had 12 3 pointers as well.  Kevin Garnett also had a huge game for Boston with 17 points and 20 rebounds. The Celtics will travel to D.C. for a thursday matchup with the Wizards before returning to the TD Banknorth Garden to host the Hornets on 12/12 and the Jazz on 12/15.  Celtics tickets are available for both games.

Giants Suspend Burress For Season

Posted by Ace Staff on December 2nd, 2008

If the New York Giants return to the Super Bowl this year, they will do so without the services of one of last year’s heroes, Plaxico Burress.  Plax was suspended by the Giants for the remainder of the year including playoffs after he was arrested on gun possession charges stemming from a night club incident last week where the star WR shot himself in the leg.  This is the second time the Giants have suspended Burress this season.  The first came on an unexcused absence from practice.  Plaxico also gave the team grief this off-season demanding that his contract be re-negotiated.  Burress would eventually get his wish, landing a new deal with New York. With the rest of his playing season decided, Plaxico can focus on defending the charges against him.  He faces a potential of 3.5 to 15 years in prison if convicted on the illegal weapons charge.  The team for their part has been offering words of encouragement and concern for their teammate.  The Giants have managed to stay focused on the field with an 11-1 record on the year.

Portland Extends Winning Streak to Four

Posted by Ace Staff on December 1st, 2008

The Portland Trail Blazers topped the Pistons in Auburn Hills on Sunday in what is becoming a regular sight for Detroit fans. Both the Pistons and the Lions have yet to win a game on a Sunday this season. LaMarcus Aldridge led the rout with 27 points, followed by 19 from Brandon Roy, and 10 points and a career high 13 rebounds by Greg Oden. “This is a good win for us, because we’ve struggled against good teams on the road this year,” Roy said in a post-game interview. “We had good focus, and we were able to close the game.” Allen Iverson continues to struggle in Detroit, describing his tenure with the team so far as “almost (been) like a training camp” Portland Trail Blazers tickets are available now for all games this season.
