NBA Daily Links: Hardwood Halloween Edition

Boston Celtics fans, welcome to Thursday.

I hope you got a chance to watch the Cs, and maybe some other NBA teams, in action last night.  The Celtics put together two really solid quarters of competitive basketball . . . and two that were instantly forgettable.  Still, it was an exciting game, which is all I ask for (mostly!).

The Cs have tonight off . . . as does the majority of the NBA, as your Halloween slate of games consists of a whopping two contests!  Lame.  But, it’s basketball, which is better than nothing, so let’s get you prepared for the action!

The first game tonight promise to be a good one, as the New York Knicks head to Chi-town to take on the Bulls.  Get your preview here.

Meanwhile, the late game has the potential to see about 400 points scored – no kidding! – between the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Clippers.  If you can stay up, I heartily recommend you watch, so here’s your preview.

Hey – maybe you missed it.  Allen Iverson retired from the NBA last night in a very understated fashion.  Chris Mannix points out how such a quiet exit overshadows the intensity Iverson displayed throughout his career.  [Sports Illustrated]

With so many games last night, I’m sure you missed something.  Here are 12 things to take away from all of the action. [Bleacher Report]

New season, new kicks.  Get a load of the best ones seen on opening night.  [Slam]

The arrival of The Truth and KG in Brooklyn was supposed to make the Nets an instant contender for the NBA championship.  Errr, didn’t look that way last night.  Problems?  [Sporting News]

And here’s your Boston Celtics reading material for the day: I’m glad places like b/r exist, if only because they attempt to do crazy things like project the full season stats for every player on the Celtics’ roster.  And I don’t have time for that sort of stuff!

Enjoy!
