Celtics Offense Set to Improve

Celtics Offense Set to Improve

The Celtics offense showed signs of life last Friday against the Wizards following a few underwhelming performances. Still, the offense ranks in the middle of the pack to start the season. The defense has picked the team up, ranking in the top 10 to start the year. Neither of these rankings are a fluke. After the [...]

Smart probably won’t play tomorrow

Smart probably won’t play tomorrow

It looks like Brad Stevens will get to tinker with his lineups another game, because Marcus Smart will probably miss tomorrow night’s game against Milwaukee. “I felt pretty good today out there,” said Smart, who engaged in his first practice activities since the injury flared last Tuesday. “I was responding to treatment, the orthotics that [...]

LeBron’s right, guys… the sleeves affect shooting

LeBron’s right, guys… the sleeves affect shooting

Those sleeves? We mocked LeBron for his public disapproval of the sleeved jerseys, but they really do have a negative impact on field goal percentage. Look, I don’t know who’s pushing these sleeved jerseys. They are so stinkin’ ugly that I can’t imagine fans are snapping them up at the outrageously inflated prices that teams [...]

Recap: Spurs too much for scrappy Celts

Recap: Spurs too much for scrappy Celts

Tonight’s first quarter was absolutely atrocious for Boston. The C’s only managed to score 13 points and looked sloppy. Luckily, the Spurs weren’t a whole heck of a lot better. Thanks to a nice performance off the bench by Jonas Jerebko & some good rebounding, it was only 23-13 after 1Q. It easily could have [...]
