Rainin’ J’s Ep. 31: The Game 3 Preview

We channel the Celtics and get off to a painfully slow start before launching into full-blown consternation over the early mistakes the Celtics have been making. So what adjustments need to be made, and can it all really be as simple as “just relax and play ball?” The guys are talking about Game 3, a potential... [More]

Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics’ margin for error is wafer thin

Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics’ margin for error is wafer thin

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. It is difficult to pinpoint one moment that caused the Celtics to collapse so quickly, but this is a good place to start. With 10 minutes... [More]

Enemy Chatter: Not much Cs can do except defend and hope Hawks miss

Enemy Chatter: Not much Cs can do except defend and hope Hawks miss

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Atlanta. Coming into the series, the feeling here was that the Celtics could hang close so long as they revved the tempo and made shots and defended like crazy. That formula... [More]

Avery Bradley seems to think he’ll be back to face Atlanta

Avery Bradley seems to think he’ll be back to face Atlanta

This isn’t how it was supposed to go. Even with a matchup against the Hawks, most astute observers had problems pinning down exactly how this series was going to go. Most expected a hard-fought, gut-it-out, seven-game series and a few even thought the Celtics could pull the upset in the end. None expected to see... [More]

Your Morning Dump… Where the C’s are in the record books. But not in a good way.

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. During an 89-72 loss Game 2 loss to the Atlanta Hawks, Boston set a shot-clock era NBA playoff game low for points in the first quarter... [More]

Recap: Celtics awful shooting reaches historic low

Recap: Celtics awful shooting reaches historic low

So much for thinking the Celtics couldn’t play any worse than they did in the first half of Game 1. Tonight the Cs treated us to the worst 1st quarter performance in modern NBA playoff history: 7 points on 3-23 shooting. Only Atlanta’s inability to deliver a death blow kept the Celtics within striking distance for... [More]

Mortal enemy Scott Foster is officiating tonight’s game

Mortal enemy Scott Foster is officiating tonight’s game

When your team is in a playoff game with Scott Foster AND Tony Brothers it’s like watching your baby get dangled out of a window. — Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) April 19, 2016 My initial reaction to the news Scott Foster is officiating tonight’s game was… oh shit, we’re screwed. Foster’s officiating can be brutally biased.... [More]

Evan Turner finishes 5th in 6th Man voting

Evan Turner finishes 5th in 6th Man voting

The internet is outraged (and if you care about these awards, then justifiably so) that Jamal Crawford won the 6th Man of the Year award again. It’s his third time, but there were definitely more deserving candidates. I bet a lot of the complainers would be placated if you lopped Crawford off the top and... [More]

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 30: The Game 2 Preview

Avery Bradley is hurt and will miss Game 2. Kelly Olynyk is hurt and might miss Game 2. Jae Crowder is hurt but he’s playing in Game 2. It all seems like a recipe for disaster, but there is hope for the Celtics if they can just keep their heads in the game and not... [More]

Your Morning Dump… Where the Hawks have bulletin board material

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “I didn’t see it, but that’s his opinion, you gotta respect it,” Horford said on Monday after Hawks practice when told of what Heinsohn said. “I...
