4 Up, 4 Down: The Phoenix Suns

4 Up, 4 Down: The Phoenix Suns

Wins at home this season haven’t been easy, but the Celtics not only beat the Suns relatively comfortably last night, they pushed that home record back up over .500… and moved just a half game behind Detroit for the 7th spot in the conference. Here’s a look at some of the good and bad from last [...]

Recap: Olynyk, Smart lead Celtics rout of Suns

Recap: Olynyk, Smart lead Celtics rout of Suns

Kelly Olynyk looked so comfortable and got so hot, he must’ve thought he was back at Gonzaga, or playing with the Canadian National Team. The lanky long-hair (no man bun tonight) single-handedly broke open a competitive contest by racking up 15 second-quarter points, including 13 straight Celtics points in a stretch of 2:14. Boston topped [...]

4 Up, 4 Down: The Indiana Pacers

4 Up, 4 Down: The Indiana Pacers

Site note: After some re-evaluation of our content, we’ve decided to move away from our “How to beat… ” series of previews and focus more time and attention to post-game analysis. So for that, we’ve resurrected our next-day “4 Up, 4 Down” series.  There was plenty of good and bad to choose from last night [...]

Recap: Celtics literally steal win from Pacers

Recap: Celtics literally steal win from Pacers

“The losing streak is over as the Celtics literally steal this win over the Pacers!” That was how Mike Gorman described the ending of Boston’s 103-94 home win over Indiana, which stopped a four-game skid, put them back over the .500 mark (20-19), and perhaps restored some of their mojo. Trailing 92-89 and under three [...]

Recap: Knicks lose Melo, Porzingis, beat Celtics

Recap: Knicks lose Melo, Porzingis, beat Celtics

The Celtics, sluggish and uninspired once again, were gifted a break in New York against the Knicks tonight after Carmelo Anthony left the game with an ankle injury and Kristaps Porzingis fouled out late in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately, they couldn’t capitalize. The Celtics dropped their fourth straight and sixth out of their last seven, [...]

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.

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 [...]
