Box Score Bank: A 10-year reunion


Box Score Bank: A 10-year reunion

Tomorrow night, the Celtics and Sixers kick off their second round series, and they'll do so nearly 10 years to the day since their last postseason match-up.

On that note, that's fire up the Box Score Bank to May 3, 2002.

George W. Bush was in his second year as President. "Foolish" by Asanti was the No. 1 song in America. Ice Age was tops at the box office. Jrue Holiday was 11 years old.

And over at the Garden, Paul Pierce was dropping 46 points in Boston's series-clinching 33 point victory.

Final Score: Celtics 120, Sixers 87

207 combined points?

We'll be lucky if the two teams combine for that over all seven games this time around.

One day after signing him, Celtics waive Ryan Kelly


One day after signing him, Celtics waive Ryan Kelly

Less than 24 hours after signing Ryan Kelly, the Celtics waived the power forward.

This is the second time Kelly was put on waivers in the past week, which is how Boston initially acquired him from the Hawks.

Now the door is open for Kelly to sign with Boston's D-League team, the Maine Red Claws, which was the initial expectation when the Celtics acquired him.
