How to beat… The New York Knicks

How to beat… The New York Knicks

Things aren’t great in Boston right now. The shine of earlier success has worn off and the team seems to be approaching a bit of a crossroads. More conversations about how to fix the roster are being had… especially with the trade deadline just FIVE weeks away. None of the roster issues will be fixed [...]

Recap: Boston acts like they won the game in 3 quarters, lose it in 4.

Recap: Boston acts like they won the game in 3 quarters, lose it in 4.

Remember when we were excited about the Celtics? I do. I also remember when this team was playing well enough that first quarter leads were safe against bad teams. That proved not to be the case tonight in a game that started off fun and then turned into a chore as a pair of basketball [...]

Recap: It’s time to panic about the Celtics offense

Recap: It’s time to panic about the Celtics offense

The Celtics cannot score. I repeat, the Celtics cannot score. Just another hideous offensive performance tonight by the boys in green as they lost 101-92 to Chicago. Here are the numbers: 35% from the floor, 20% from 3. How many ways can we dissect it? And at what point do we criticize shot selection? Evan [...]

How to beat… The Chicago Bulls

How to beat… The Chicago Bulls

If the Celtics really want to embrace their identity, their sales department will get Six Flags on as a sponsor immediately. This is a roller coaster of a season that is currently on a big down swing. But those roller coasters have to go back up again… and a nationally televised game against a streaking [...]

Recap: 4th quarter collapse leads to another awful loss

Recap: 4th quarter collapse leads to another awful loss

In a game they pretty much controlled for about 3 quarters, the Celtics wilted badly in the final 12 minutes and lost to the Pistons, 99-94. The Celtics started fast by attacking the paint and beating Andre Drummond with slick interior passing. Their shooting slowly deteriorated from there but, even after shooting 8-28 FG in [...]

How to beat… The Detroit Pistons

How to beat… The Detroit Pistons

The Celtics start a really tough back-to-back tonight against the Detroit Pistons, who happen to be gaining strength. They just roasted Orlando and Minnesota (sandwiched around a loss to Indiana). The Celtics, meanwhile, are without Avery Bradley, which really limits their ability to do some of the things needed to beat the Pistons tonight. 1: [...]

Recap: Celtics display toughness, get payback over Nets

Recap: Celtics display toughness, get payback over Nets

After two terrible losses, the Celtics traveled to Brooklyn for a gut check game. Not only did the Cs win, 103-94, but they outhustled and outmuscled the Nets, scoring 54 points in the paint in leading almost the entire 48 minutes. Jae Crowder posted a career-high 25 points, including a cold-blooded three-pointer that put the [...]

Recap: Celtics follow up bad loss with worse loss

Recap: Celtics follow up bad loss with worse loss

Well, the Celtics managed to cram about six minutes of competent basketball into four quarters this afternoon and lost disgracefully to a team that is even worse than the Los Angeles Lakers. The final score, 100-97, does not reflect how poorly Boston played for the bulk of this game. The first quarter of this matinee [...]

How to beat… The Brooklyn Nets

How to beat… The Brooklyn Nets

The Boston Celtics are starting off the new year with what, on paper, appears to be a little bit of a gift. The Brooklyn Nets are terrible, and the Celtics get a nice, comfortable home-and-home with them to start 2016. Boston has had a couple of days off.. they have a nice easy afternoon game [...]

Recap: Lakers show up to play, Celtics don’t-predictable results ensue

Recap: Lakers show up to play, Celtics don’t-predictable results ensue

With the exception of about three minutes in the fourth quarter and a couple in the first, the Celtics didn’t just play to the level of their competition tonight, they played below it. They were worse than a team with a placeholder coach trying desperately to keep a top-three protected pick, losing to the Lakers [...]
