Recap: Celtics throttle Kings, seize 3rd seed

Recap: Celtics throttle Kings, seize 3rd seed

So this is what is was like to be a Nuggets fan in 1984. The Celtics rode a 46 point 1st quarter explosion to a 128-119 victory over the Sacramento Kings. The victory is Boston’s 4th straight and 12 out of 15. At 31-22 the C’s own 3rd place in the Eastern conference by a [...]

Recap: Bradley’s miracle buzzer-beater beats Cavs, 104-103

You want a dramatic win over the Cavs in Cleveland and at the buzzer? Avery Bradley’s got you. AB’s buzzer-beating three capped a miracle finish in which the Celtics trailed by five with 18 seconds left, and four with seven seconds left. After a timeout, Evan Turner scored a driving layup and drew a foul. [...]

Recap: Stan Van Gundy Loses Neck, Game

Recap: Stan Van Gundy Loses Neck, Game

This was not a close game. At least for about the middle 40 minutes or so. Some serious defensive lapses in the middle stretch of the fourth allowed Detroit back into it, but when the dust settled and the referees stopped blowing whistles, the Celtics won 102-95, running their record in the second game of [...]

Recap: Zeller, Turner power Celtics past Knicks

Recap: Zeller, Turner power Celtics past Knicks

It wasn’t a particularly great game for the Celtics. They came out cold, but Brad Stevens made a lineup adjustment that worked and guys who didn’t play well early stepped up late and the Celtics came out of New York with a 97-89 win. The first half wasn’t particularly great for Boston. They took 13 [...]

4 Up/4 Down: The Orlando home-and-home

4 Up/4 Down: The Orlando home-and-home

How surprised are we really? The Celtics went from the highest point of the season to watching the Orlando Magic snap an 8-game losing streak by putting up 119 points against what’s usually one of the best defenses in the league. So here’s the good and the bad from the home-and-home series with the Magic. [...]

Recap: Defenseless Celtics burned by Magic bench

With a win tonight in Orlando, the Celtics had a chance to leapfrog Atlanta and Chicago into the 3rd seed in the East. But after a promising 1st quarter, the C’s parlayed poor shot selection and shaky defense into a 119-114 loss. The Celtics started red hot (7-12 from 3) in large part because the [...]

Recap: Celtics’ 4th quarter makes Magic disappear, 113-94

How does five wins in a row strike you? And each one featuring at least a 20-point lead? That’s what the Celtics have done after a strong 113-94 win over Orlando in Boston. The Cs’ record is now 27-21. The Celts had the lead most of the way, but Orlando wouldn’t go away and had [...]

4 Up/4 Down: ET gets love, Batman doesn’t after the Nuggets game

4 Up/4 Down: ET gets love, Batman doesn’t after the Nuggets game

We woke up to the current-5th seed Celtics on a nice little 4-game win streak (so what if the last 3 wins were against current non-playoff teams?) and just a half-game out of the top-half of the league.  This is the second-best defensive team in the league (98.7 defensive rating), they are 7th in terms [...]

Recap: C’s survive late scare, win 4th straight

The Celtics got their first look at the Denver Nuggets tonight, and for the most part, the C’s held a comfortable lead for most of the game. They used their usual tough defense to keep Denver in check and some hot shooting to get a lot points on the board. Of course they made it [...]

4 Up/4 Down: The Philly/Washington back-to-back

He made it off the bench [...]
