Recap: Hawks deliver kill shot to Celtics season

Recap: Hawks deliver kill shot to Celtics season

Thank god that’s over. I love a grit and balls playoff dogfight but this team was borderline unwatchable in the playoffs. Even the victories were brutal. The Hawks choked out the Celtics, 104-92, to win this series in 6 games. Atlanta’s recipe for victory was the same: swarm Isaiah Thomas and dare the others to [...]

Enemy Chatter: Trapping Thomas

Enemy Chatter: Trapping Thomas

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. Trapping Thomas The Hawks did make a defense adjustment in Game 5. They employed a trap when the Celtics’ Isaiah Thomas had the ball and forced him to pass. Following [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where the Cs were lucky that a bad night didn’t get worse

Your Morning Dump… Where the Cs were lucky that a bad night didn’t get worse

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. Although they were routed in Atlanta and now face a must-win Game 6 on Thursday, the Celtics caught a big break regarding the indispensable Isaiah Thomas. [...]

Recap: House of Horrors

Recap: House of Horrors

Phillips Arena continued to be Boston’s personal house of horrors tonight, as the Celts get smoked by the Hawks 110-83 in Game 5. The first quarter of tonight’s game was an offensive horror show for both squads. The Celts’ shots simply weren’t falling, but thankfully their pitbull defense was on point. Boston “swarmed” the Hawks [...]

Recap: Mostly dead Celtics come back and win in OT

Recap: Mostly dead Celtics come back and win in OT

This Celtics team is something, man. No one can really explain what they’re doing. There’s no formula for this. They’re relying on a Detroit Piston cast-off, a 2nd-year player known as much nationally for his performance art flops as he is for anything else, a good player who’s not himself due to injury, and one [...]

Recap: Celtics win the must-win Game 3

First off, let me preface this blog by saying I’m heavily buzzed. It’s possible all of following will be deleted in the morning. Secondly, what a freakin game! The real Celtics finally showed up at the tip. The defensive intensity was phenomenal and so was the shooting (at least for the 1st quarter). Led by [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Playoff Recap: Celtics lose opener, and Bradley with injury

The Celtics’ opening playoff game was like night and day, from the first half to the second half, as Boston came back from 17 points down at halftime to nearly pull off another of their patented miracles. But in the end, Atlanta hung on for a 102-101 victory that we’ll hope the Cs don’t come to [...]

Recap: Three championship teams and one half of incredible basketball

Recap: Three championship teams and one half of incredible basketball

Well, that was interesting. Boston dropped a steaming pile of basketball over the first twenty-four minutes, and over the final twenty-four looked at least as good as the ’76 Celtics–if not the ’66 or ’86 Celtics. They spotted Miami a 24 point lead and then took it all back and then some, outscoring Miami by [...]
