Recap: Jared Sullinger for MVP

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

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 [...]

Recap: A game that offends all Dr. James Naismith stood for

The Boston Celtics, a member of the National Basketball Association, took part in a sanctioned exhibition against the Philadelphia 76’ers, also a member of the National Basketball Association tonight. They adhered to the rules of professional basketball by playing 48 minutes on regulation court, using a regulation basketball, under the supervision of three professional NBA [...]

Recap: Celtics hold off Knicks without Isaiah Thomas

Recap: Celtics hold off Knicks without Isaiah Thomas

The Celtics held out a couple of guys, including Isaiah Thomas, but they, I guess, avenged their only preseason loss (pretend you’re interested in that) by beating the Knicks in Boston tonight, 99-85. The Celtics struggled with the Knicks’ size in New York but that wasn’t the case tonight. Part of that was because Marcus [...]

Recap: Rozier leads Celtics over Nets at Garden, 111-105

Terry Rozier experienced his debut on the parquet, and the rookie made it count in a big way. Rozier scored a team-high 16 points, making all three of his three-point attempts, with six assists, four steals and just one turnover in 27 minutes to lead the Celtics to a 111-105 preseason win over the Brooklyn Nets at [...]
