Smart suspended 1 game for nut punch, Young recalled

Smart suspended 1 game for nut punch, Young recalled

It appears the NBA isn’t buying Marcus Smart’s “freak accident” excuse either, as the league announced a one game suspension for the Celtics guard today, without pay. Smart was ejected in the fourth quarter of last night’s game after he blasted Matt Bonner in the jewels. He’ll miss tomorrow night’s game against Detroit, which leaves [...]

Isaiah Thomas still a week from returning

Isaiah Thomas still a week from returning

We sure could have used Isaiah Thomas last night. And we’d probably REALLY need him against San Antonio.  But don’t expect him back for that game either. In fact, he might not be back for Sunday or Monday against Detroit or Brooklyn, either. “It was a pretty gruesome fall. He bounced back and played the [...]

Solving the Tyler Zeller Mystery

Solving the Tyler Zeller Mystery

Tyler Zeller, by all individual counts, is having a great year for the Celtics. He has been one of the team’s most efficient players, shooting 54% from the field, and while his per game averages of 9.7 points and 5.7 rebounds may not be eye-popping, his per 36 averages of 16.7 points, 9.8 rebounds, 2.2 [...]

Playoffs Push: Why the next 3 games are massively important

Playoffs Push: Why the next 3 games are massively important

Amazingly, it is mid-March and we’re talking about a potential push not only into the playoffs, but potentially the 7th seed. Granted, this push would mean the Celtics face either the juggernaut Hawks or the LeBron James family funtime jamboree band. Neither is an appetizing scenario, but the experience of facing those teams in a [...]

The James Young conundrum

The James Young conundrum

This kid can’t catch a break. This kid can’t earn his break. Every time it looks like he’s poised to get some regular minutes, someone else comes along and steals them from him. Every time there are regular minutes to give him, someone else comes along and plays much better than him. This is the [...]

Brad Stevens with 5 simple words for last night’s refs
