Celtics 2013-14 season preview: The Expendables

Celtics 2013-14 season preview: The Expendables

We always search for a theme to our season preview. Last year we went with The Walking Dead and pegged the aging Celtics as unstoppable zombies who would march to Banner 18. Unfortunately, the Celtics proved to be quite stoppable and I’m convinced zombies devoured all rational thought from our brains the night before we [...]

Recap: C’s go cold in Montreal

Recap: C’s go cold in Montreal

Celtics get pounded on the boards (54-40) and shoot 3 of 26 from long range to fall to the Timberwolves tonight 104-89 at the Bell Centre in Montreal. Boston was out scored in every quarter and the TWolves got to the free-throw line at will where they scored 25% of their points. Kevin Love notched [...]

Recap: A circus ending leads to another C’s preseason loss to Toronto, 99-97

Recap: A circus ending leads to another C’s preseason loss to Toronto, 99-97

With under a minute to go in the fourth quarter, the Celtics were trailing the Toronto Raptors by three, 95-92.  Inexplicably, they fouled intentionally.  At least it seemed that it was intentional.  Chris Babb fouled Dwight Buycks (who?!?!) made both free throws to make it a 5 point game that the Raptors would not relinquish. [...]

Recap: Watching Paul Pierce play against the Celtics is STRANGE

Recap: Watching Paul Pierce play against the Celtics is STRANGE

The Celtics lost 82-80 to the Brooklyn Nets tonight. I watched nearly all of this game (No way I could bail on the Red Sox) in a daze. Maybe I’ve had my fill of preseason basketball or maybe my brain had difficulty processing Paul Pierce in a Brooklyn Nets uniform. It was freakin’ weird. The [...]

Recap: C’s put on Klynyk in New Hampshire

Recap: C’s put on Klynyk in New Hampshire

Before tonight’s game with the Knicks, coach Brad Stevens said it would be important for Boston to get off to a fast start. Well the Celtics did just that, burying all four of their three-pointers in the first 6 minutes to open-up an 18-4 lead. Ball movement was crisp, guys were moving and things looked [...]

Recap: Celtics fall to Sixers in Delaware

Recap: Celtics fall to Sixers in Delaware

Tonight’s Celtics-Sixers game in Delaware started off as your typical preseason contest. Sloppy. The two teams combined for 11 turnovers in the first quarter and shot an atrocius 14 of 41 from the field. Boston did however finish quarter one with a lead for the first time this preseason, 21-20. They had a pretty balanced [...]

Recap: A guy you never heard of leads furious comeback that falls just short

Recap: A guy you never heard of leads furious comeback that falls just short

With 8 minutes to go and a more than 20 point Knicks lead, undrafted and unknown rookie Chris Babb checked into the game.  And all he did once he got on the floor was dominate. Babb went 4-5 from 3 to score 12 points in those 8 minutes and help turn a 23 point deficit [...]

Recap: Wallace, Sully impress in lackluster preseason opener

Recap: Wallace, Sully impress in lackluster preseason opener

The first (preseason) game of the Brad Stevens era is in the books and zzzzzzz. Sorry, it was that type of game. The Celtics lost 97-89. Other than assessing some individual performances, there are little assumptions to be made. The Green: Jared Sullinger (14 points, 6 reb, 4 assists) showed us that he’s fully healed [...]

NBA scout: Olynyk has the tools to be widely known in the NBA

NBA scout: Olynyk has the tools to be widely known in the NBA

A week ago today, Kelly Olynyk participated in his first organized basketball game as a member of the Boston Celtics.  The gym was full of media, coaches, GM’s, and scouts all trying to get a read on what Olynyk and the rest of the new rookies had to offer. Olynyk didn’t disappoint. I liked what [...]

The un-glamorous, un-NBA life that is the Orlando Summer League

I’ve been covering the Orlando Summer Pro League all week (you can read the pieces here if you missed any).  My final piece from Orlando is a look at the atmosphere in Orlando, and why it’s player’s equivalent of a physical exam.  It’s a piece I wrote for WEEI, which you can find here.  Here’s an [...]
