Boston police sent Black History Month tribute to Red Auerbach and people were not happy

ef47533eb58f823e0aa4ead240e87cc2

The Boston Police Department learned Sunday that, sometimes, the best tweet is the one you don’t send. The most common problem people had with that tweet was that, instead of honoring Auerbach, they could have just paid tribute to Bill Russell. [email protected] I noticed you guys deleted this tweet honoring Red Auerbach instead of actually honoring Bill Russell.

LeBron James led the new-look Cavaliers to a blowout in Boston with an individual performance reminiscent of the rivalry's heyday. With the former Celtics great waiting to see his No. 34 raised to the Boston Garden rafters, James shook off a first-quarter leg injury to score 24 points with 10 assists and eight rebounds to give Cleveland a 121-99 victory on Sunday. In their first appearances since being acquired at the trade deadline, Jordan Clarkson scored 17 points, Rodney Hood had 15, George Hill had 12 and Larry Nance Jr. scored five.

LeBron’s New Cast Spoils Paul Pierce’s Jersey Retirement Night in Blowout Over Celtics

In hindsight, it was a good decision that the Celtics took the unusual step of retiring Paul Pierce’s jersey in a post-game ceremony rather than at halftime of Sunday’s showcase game against the Cavaliers. LeBron James and his refashioned supporting cast smoked the Celtics 121-99 at TD Garden, with all four new Cavaliers turning in impressive debuts. Cleveland torched Boston’s No. 1 ranked defense for 64 first-half points before blowing open the contest with an 11-0 run late in the third quarter.

The only thing that matters in Boston on Sunday is Paul Pierce

Paul Pierce’s No. 34 will be raised to the TD Garden rafters on Feb. 11. Boston’s history is littered with some of the most beloved heroes in sports and you’d certainly be challenged to name someone who committed himself more to bringing home a title than the Celtics’ Paul Pierce. With the Cavs in a deep rut, it’s also the perfect time to let the game take a backseat to Pierce’s legacy.

BOSTON — The night before his No. 34 heads to the rafters at TD Garden, Boston Celtics legend Paul Pierce detailed how the retired jersey numbers and banners he'll soon mingle with inspired him during his 15 seasons in Boston. The Celtics toasted Pierce on Saturday night at the Four Seasons hotel in Boston's Back Bay. On the night Robert Parish declared Pierce the "greatest offensive Celtic ever," Pierce tried to wrap his head around simply joining legends such as Bill Russell, Larry Bird and John Havlicek whose numbers hang above the Garden floor. "Every day I walk into the practice facility and see those numbers. Every day in the arena, you see these numbers. That was inspirational," Pierce

Wizards, Bulls try to survive without star players

The Washington Wizards are learning first-hand what life is like without John Wall and, at least for the foreseeable future, playing short-handed will continue to be their reality. The Wizards have won five of their last seven games heading into Saturday's road test against the Chicago Bulls, who — like the Wizards — continue to play without one of their key contributors — starting guard Kris Dunn. Wizards coach Scott Brooks told reporters Friday that Wall, who is recovering from minor knee surgery, will remain on crutches for at least another week as he continues to rehab from an arthroscopic debridement procedure he underwent Jan. 31.
