What should the Celtics do to better close out games?

What should the Celtics do to better close out games?

Much has been made out of the Celtics inability to close out tight games, and with good reason. Four of their seven losses have come by five points or less. Boston’s most frustrating loss of the season came at home against the Cleveland Cavaliers, where they blew a 17 point lead in the 4th quarter. While [...]

Dividing Minutes between the Celtics Frontcourt

Dividing Minutes between the Celtics Frontcourt

Brad Stevens is going to have some difficult decisions to make regarding his frontcourt rotations this season. The Celtics have four players (five if you include Jeff Green) who currently deserve significant minutes and Vitor Faverani is on his way back from injury, and rookie Dwight Powell who will most likely spend the majority of [...]

Recap: Bass, Sullinger tag-team knocks out 76ers

After a lack-luster first half, the Celtics were in danger of becoming the first victim of the 0-10 76ers. But Brad Stevens said something to the boys in the locker room and the C’s responded. Boston protected the ball, eliminated Philly’s second chance opportunities and, most importantly, kept running in the 2nd half. The 101-90 [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics are still green at closing games

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. It seems the Celtics have been trying to solve the mystery of their fourth-quarter disappearances for years, even before the Brad Stevens era began. It was no [...]

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

Recap: C’s collapse in 2nd half, get crushed by Jackson/Morrow combo

Recap: C’s collapse in 2nd half, get crushed by Jackson/Morrow combo

For a while, it looked like the Celtics were going to get above .500 for the first time in Brad Stevens’ young coaching career.  They flew out of the gates, and, after some struggles from the bench, asserted themselves adequately to go into halftime with a positive vibe.  The second half could not have been [...]

The State of the Frontcourt: Analyzing Saturday night and beyond

The State of the Frontcourt: Analyzing Saturday night and beyond

Let’s preface this article by saying that the Chicago Bulls team the Celtics just beat is not the Chicago Bulls team that many expect to make a deep playoff run.  Playing in their 4th game in 5 nights, the Bulls were without their star point guard Derrick Rose.  Joakim Noah is clearly not himself yet, [...]

Recap: Rondo, Celtics, coast to opening night win over Brooklyn

The Celtics opened with a pretty damn good 1st quarter, shooting 59% overall and 4 of 7 (57%) from 3 en route to 31 first quarter points. The Celtics looked active on both ends of the floor, holding Brooklyn to 41% shooting and 23 first quarter points. The second quarter was even better than the [...]
