How to beat… The Atlanta Hawks

How to beat… The Atlanta Hawks

This has the potential to not be much fun. The Atlanta Hawks are 8-2 and in a virtual tie atop the East. They have three regulars with PER’s higher than 20. They are, to sum it up succinctly, very good. Here’s how the not-as-good Celtics can beat the Atlanta Hawks tonight. 1: Protect the damn [...]

Recap: Celtics lose another to Pacers and Paul George, 102-91

Maybe you can be competitive in the NBA without a superstar, but when the other team has one and you can’t stop him, that’s a problem. One week after the Celtics lost by two points in Indiana, Boston again fell to the Pacers in TD Garden, 102-91. Paul George, who surely is a superstar, made [...]

The Celtics made it back to .500 with a convincing 99-83 win in Milwaukee against a Bucks team that is long on length and short on depth. After spotting the Bucks the first 8 points and forcing Brad to call a “You guys do realize that this is an actual game, not a scrimmage?” timeout [...]

Recap: Jared Sullinger for MVP

If you’re going to plant your ass on the couch on a Friday night and watch some basketball, this is the type of effort and performance you want to see. Except for the opening 90 seconds, the Celtics dominated the Wizards and walked off with a 118-98 victory. Jared Sullinger was brilliant. Brilliant. He was [...]

Recap: Celtics fight, but drop close game to Indiana

Recap: Celtics fight, but drop close game to Indiana

The Celtics trotted out a surprise starting lineup of Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley, Jae Crowder, Amir Johnson, and Jared Sullinger. With Marcus Smart out, I expected a move to go with Evan Turner… but Brad Stevens decided to try his hand with Thomas. And since Thomas and Johnson are joined at the hip, Amir started [...]

Weekly AUERBACH ratings: Bigs drop big, bench Evan Turner

Weekly AUERBACH ratings: Bigs drop big, bench Evan Turner

The first three games are in the books, and the results weren’t really very good at all. After the first week of real basketball, our proprietary AUERBACH system of evaluating basketball (Augmented User-Envisioned Reality Basketball Assumption and Categorization Hypotheses) is especially hard on most of the Celtics front court. Overall, the frontcourt’s AUERBACH rating is down [...]

Recap: Spurs too much for scrappy Celts

Recap: Spurs too much for scrappy Celts

Tonight’s first quarter was absolutely atrocious for Boston. The C’s only managed to score 13 points and looked sloppy. Luckily, the Spurs weren’t a whole heck of a lot better. Thanks to a nice performance off the bench by Jonas Jerebko & some good rebounding, it was only 23-13 after 1Q. It easily could have [...]

Recap: Toronto reminds the Cs who rules the Atlantic

After dispatching the Philadelphia 76ers of the NBA’s developmental league to open the season, tonight’s tilt with the Raptors felt like an early season measuring stick game for the Celtics. They came up well short. Locked up at 58 after the first half, the Raptors rode hot shooting, while the Cs fell victim to sloppy [...]

Recap: “The Bench” propels Celtics past 76ers in opener

If you had any doubts about the Celtics depth, tonight’s 112-95 victory over the 76ers should have changed your mind. Led by Isaiah Thomas’s 27 points and 7 assists, the Celtics bench outscored the starters, 67-45. The C’s overcame a sluggish start and a torrid 1st quarter by Sixers’ rookie Jahlil Okafor (26 points, 7 [...]

Introducing the new Red’s Army grading formula: The AUERBACH system

We’ve spent a significant amount of time looking at statistical projections for this season. One of them, FiveThirtyEight’s CARMELO system, predicts the Celtics will win nearly 50 games and be the second seed in the East.  Here, I’ll let them explain the system themselves: FiveThirtyEight’s Career-Arc Regression Model Estimator with Local Optimization (CARMELO) is a [...]
