Celtics Top Spurs at Home

Posted by Ace Staff on January 5th, 2011

Rajon Rondo dished out 22 assists while contributing 12 points and 10 rebounds for his 11th career triple-double, lifting his Boston Celtics to win over the top ranked San Antonio Spurs 105-103 Wednesday night at the TD Garden. Rondo played 43 1/2 minutes in his third game back after being sidelined for two weeks with a sprained ankle. “I felt a lot better in the past couple of games,” said Rondo. “I’m in a little better rhythm, and I’m able to push off a little bit more on my ankle.” Ray Allen netted 13-of-16 from the field for 31 points and Glen Davis produced 23 in place of the injured Kevin Garnett. The Celtics collectively shot a remarkable 61 percent to notch the W. Manu Ginobili led the Spurs with 24 points while Tony Parker and Tim Duncan followed up with 18 apiece. Celtics coach Doc Rivers expressed a great deal of respect for San Antonio, saying “it took a 61 percent effort from us tonight to win a basketball game at home. That tells you how good that team is.” The Celtics are currently 27-7 and leading the Atlantic Division. They will next play host to the Toronto Raptors Friday, January 7th before traveling to Chicago to matchup with the Bulls the following day. The TD Garden will then feature a string of home contests against the Rockets, Kings, Bobcats, Magic, Pistons and Jazz. Find the best Boston Celtics ticket deals right here at Ace!

Gasol, Lakers Win Over Spurs

Posted by Ace Staff on February 9th, 2010

Pau Gasol collected 21 points, 19 rebounds and eight assists to lead his shorthanded LA Lakers past the San Antonio Spurs 101-89 Monday night at the Staples Center. Kobe Bryant sat his second consecutive game with a sore left angle as Andrew Bynum joined him on the bench with a bruised right hip. Ron Artest and Lamar Odom stepped up in their absence, contributing for 34 points combined. “It’s got to be reassuring for the rest of the team and for the guys that don’t play that much that are now stepping up,” said Gasol. “It was fun. It was a good challenge for us. We played hard and got a nice win.” The Spurs have now lost four in a row heading into their next game against the Denver Nuggets on Thursday. The Lakers will look to win three straight at Utah without their star player who’s currently listed as day to day. “I don’t know what it’s going to look like on Sunday. I’m not clairvoyant,” said Bryant jokingly. “If it’s an injury where I feel like I can play through it and have it heal while I’m playing, then I’ll play.”

Suns Remain Perfect at Home

Posted by Ace Staff on December 16th, 2009

Goran Dragic shot his way to a career night, netting four of five from trey land to eventually post 18 points as the Phoenix Suns ran down the San Antonio Spurs 116-104 yesterday at US Airways Center. “I thought Phoenix did a great job coming out aggressively and keeping the aggressiveness for 48 minutes,” said San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich. “We had too many pathetic games from too many people. You can’t do that against a team like Phoenix.” The Suns are now 9-0 at home, winning over a handful of big name organizations that include the Boston Celtics, Orlando Magic, and Miami Heat. Amare Stoudemire produced the best stat line for the Suns with 28 points and 14 rebounds. Steve Nash threw in some impressive numbers as well with 25 points and 13 assists. Tim Duncan came up with 34 while pulling down 14 boards despite his squads losing efforts.  “We started soft. They are a high-scoring team, and if you make mistakes, they punish you,” said Manu Ginobli, who finished with seven. “We didn’t expect Dragic to make four 3s. We want Steve and Amare to score on us, and nobody else. It’s a good lesson.” San Antonio will look to turn things around tonight against the Golden State Warriors. Phoenix is set to take on the Portland Trail Blazers Thursday before hosting the Washington Wizards on Saturday.

Spurs Hope for Dynasty Reunion Playoff Tour

Posted by Ace Staff on August 26th, 2009

San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said earlier this week that his aged veterans Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili have been taking it easy and should be more than 100% heading into the upcoming season.  Duncan struggled with knee problems during their short lived playoff run last year.  The All-Star forward has rested well since then and plans to start working out next week.  Ginobili, who played just 44 games last season due to ankle problems has been limited to treadmill workouts.  “He is healthy,” Popovich said. “He’ll come back out of shape but healthy.”  The Spurs front office has really put in work lately, acquiring Richard Jefferson and Antonio McDyess to give floor general Tony Parker more options down the court.  If Ginobili and Duncan can really come back like trainers and coaches are suggesting, the Spurs may be looking at another championship run ahead of them.  Overall San Antonio has made the most improvements heading into the 2009-2010 season.  They will certainly show as top contenders in the West with the LA Lakers and the Denver Nuggets.  The scary part about the this off-season is it seems like all of the best teams just got better.  The Lakers only re-signed Lamar Odom and also added one of the best defensive players in the league (Ron Artest) to their championship roster.  The Cleveland Cavaliers kept their core intact and were simply able to make room for future hall of fame center Shaquille O’Neal.  The Boston Celtics clearly have their front court in line after acquiring Shelden Williams, Rasheed Wallace, and re-signing Glen Davis.  The Orlando Magic seemed very pleased after signing Vince Carter and Jason Williams to go along with a healthy Jameer Nelson and Dwight Howard.  It will be interesting to see how the season will pan out, because virtually no predictions can be made at the present moment.

Garnett and Allen take Flight with the C’s

Posted by Ace Staff on March 19th, 2009

This will mark the first time Garnett has traveled with the team since his injury.  Celtics head coach Doc Rivers said they are going to take Garnett’s possible return day by day.  With this said, for the past two practices Garnett has been involved in successful work outs and could be ready to go Friday.  After San Antonio the C’s will head to Memphis, Tennessee for a Saturday night game against the Grizzlies.

Celtics Fall to Late Spurs Rally

Posted by Ace Staff on February 9th, 2009

With just 45 seconds to go in the 4th quarter of last night’s game, the Celtics held a one point lead. Boston’s costly mistakes and San Antonio’s stellar play led to 11 straight points to leave the game at a 105-99 final. Manu Ginobli’s steal off of Ray Allen’s inbound pass put the game out of reach.

“We’ve got a tough task in front of us, going on the road for the next couple of weeks, and we’ve got to make up some ground,” Celtics Captain Paul Pierce told Jimmy Golen of the AP. “We have our work cut out for us. This is a big road trip for us.”

The Celtics go to New Orleans to face the Hornets on February 11th.

Ginobli Will Return to Spurs on Monday Night

Posted by Ace Staff on November 29th, 2008

Spurs shooting guard Manu Ginobli was projected to be out until the middle of December, recovering from surgery on his ankle in the offseason. Ginobli recently told Spurs coach Greg Popovich that he would be ready to return to action on Monday night at Memphis. The Spurs have struggled without their Star #6 man, putting up a 7-6 record in his absence. “I’m going to be out of shape, a little slower,” Ginobli told Yahoo Sports. “But those are things you only get from playing. I feel like it works better for me getting 10 minutes of playing time than 20 minutes on a treadmill.” San Antonio Spurs Tickets are available now!
