Recap: Cs Drop First of Two in Florida Road Trip

Recap: Cs Drop First of Two in Florida Road Trip

The Celtics fell to a depleted Heat team by the score of 100-84 in what was a sub-par effort from the green. Miami completely controlled the pace of the game, holding the Celtics to 0 fastbreak points, well below their average of 17.1, which ranks 3rd in the NBA. Miami was able to slow the [...]

Great Ball Movement When the Celtics lost Rondo [...]

Recap: Celtics pull away in the 4th (no, really) for blowout win

Recap: Celtics pull away in the 4th (no, really) for blowout win

At the outset of this game, it looked like the Celtics were going to struggle against Nikola Vucevic and the Orlando Magic.  Rajon Rondo was equal parts sloppy and sharp, but the Celtics turned it over a lot and didn’t rebound early in the game.  But the Celtics slowly got their act together, got a [...]

Recap: Celtics roll as Kelly Olynyk drops 30 on Philly

Minus a sluggish 5-minute stretch to start the game, the Celtics dominated the 76ers 105-87 tonight. The 18 point win is the largest margin of victory this season. Kelly Olynyk (30 points, 12-17 FG, 9 rebounds, 3 steals, 2 blocks) had a career night. He nearly burst into flames in the 1st quarter (14 points, [...]

Recap: Celtics happy to help the Knicks end their 10-game losing streak

Recap: Celtics happy to help the Knicks end their 10-game losing streak

The Celtics defense was noticeably missing Avery Bradley (sickness) and Marcus Smart (Achilles strain early in the 1st quarter) and the offense was just noticeably… missing. The result? A pathetic New York Knicks team nearly led wire-to-wire and won 101-95. The Knicks came out scorching from the field and save for a short stretch in the [...]

4up/4down: Celtics vs Hornets (Game 20 of 82)

Most of us expected the Celtics to pull this game out, but a fully rested Hornets team that had a full 4 days to practice were more poised and ready to get back on track. In a frustrating game the Hornets, were able to take control late and win 96-87. Before we harp on the issues [...]

Enemy Chatter: Brad Stevens may be a coaching savant but…

Enemy Chatter: Brad Stevens may be a coaching savant but…

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 Charlotte. I’ve heard again and again that Brad Stevens is a coaching savant. I’m not disputing that. But never in two years of covering Al Jefferson have I seen a coach do [...]

Recap: No one steps up for Celtics in loss to Hornets

Recap: No one steps up for Celtics in loss to Hornets

This wasn’t a pretty game by any means.  The Celtics had plenty of opportunities… as usual.  But they couldn’t capitalize… as usual.  No single player had a consistently good game.  Most of Jeff Green’s scoring came in the first and third.  Most of Rondo’s in the second.  Most of Marcus Thornton’s came in the 4th. [...]
