Recap: Trader Danny’s new guys propel C’s to comeback victory

Recap: Trader Danny’s new guys propel C’s to comeback victory

No Rondo, no Jeff Green, no Kelly, no Sully. No problem. The Celtics won their first “playoff atmosphere” game of the Brad Stevens era in large part due to the shrewd, 11th hour moves of Danny Ainge on deadline day. After enduring a 25-1 Charlotte run in the second and third quarters, Isaiah Thomas and Jonas [...]

4up/4down: Celtics vs. Suns (Game 54 of 82)

After a brutal loss to the Lakers, The Celtics needed a win to close out the road trip on a high note, and keep pace with the rest of the pack in the Eastern Conference playoff race. Like we’ve seen before, the Celtics started off hot, but went cold in the second half as the [...]

Recap: Isaiah Thomas is The Force as Celtics shoot down Suns

It was Star Wars Night in the US Airways Center in Phoenix, but The Force was with the Boston Celtics. That force was 5’9” dynamo Isaiah Thomas, who made crucial plays down the stretch to key Boston’s 115-110 win over the Suns. The victory snapped a two-game losing streak and prevented an 0-3 western road [...]

4up/4down: Celtics vs. Lakers (Game 53 of 82)

It was definitely not the ending that we wanted to see, but this is the NBA, and on any given day teams can catch you off-guard. With most of the frontcourt gone and 3 new bodies to infuse into the system, this is the most vulnerable the Celtics will probably be, and the Lakers knew [...]

Recap: Celtics scrap to end, but can’t put away the Lakers in OT

Recap: Celtics scrap to end, but can’t put away the Lakers in OT

It was fun, infuriating, depressing, then fun again, but then back to depressing. The Celtics lost a semi-important game to the Lakers (if you’re into the playoff race), but how we lost is almost more annoying than the fact that we lost. As an official, it’s important that you have control over the game to [...]

4up/4down: Celtics vs Kings (Game 42 of 82)

With only 10 available bodies the Celtics scrapped and clawed in Sacramento, but came up short. The loss now puts the Celtics a full 2 games back for that last playoff spot.

Recap: Kings overpower Celtics, 109-101

Recap: Kings overpower Celtics, 109-101

Life without Sully might not be easy. The Celtics, playing without their leading scorer and rebounder, started their three-game western road trip with a 109-101 loss at Sacramento on Friday. Avery Bradley led the Cs with 28 points, and Tyler Zeller had 22, but the Celts were overpowered by the deeper Kings. DeMarcus Cousins had [...]

Recap: Celtics erase 18 point deficit, shock Atlanta

Full disclosure: I had a recap written midway through the 4th quarter. At that point the Celtics were down 14, they were shooting less than 30%, and the Hawks are the Hawks. This game was over. I completely believed that. So did the Hawks. Because the Hawks decided the 7:43 mark of the 4th quarter [...]
