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 [...]

How to beat… the Los Angeles Lakers

How to beat… the Los Angeles Lakers

This is where you jump to the comments and make the snarky “just show up” comments. But we’ve seen the Celtics struggle when they try that mess. This is Kobe’s big night… maybe his biggest of the season aside from his home finale… and the Celtics can spoil it by following this plan. 1: Expose [...]

Recap: Celtics keep Knicks at bay

Recap: Celtics keep Knicks at bay

There are only a handful of teams that can beat the Celtics in the half court when they show up to play. New York is not one of them. The Celtics won their fourth straight tonight, beating New York 100-91. The first quarter played out thus: The Celtics looked like a team that was playing [...]

Recap: Celtics hold off Pistons in Detroit

Recap: Celtics hold off Pistons in Detroit

Despite some sketchy (to put it nicely) officiating in the final minute & change, the Celtics got a 99-93 win over the Pistons in Detroit tonight. Three Reggie Jackson foul shots, the result of a bad call with 1:08 left, enabled Detroit to cut what was once a 16 point fourth quarter Boston lead to 92-85 [...]

Recap: Ferocious Olynyk leads Celtics over Hornets

Recap: Ferocious Olynyk leads Celtics over Hornets

Ferocious isn’t an adjective often associated with Kelly Olynk. But the quiet Canadian played that way tonight, scoring a team high 20 points (7-10 FG, 9 reb) including two buckets late that sealed the Celtics 102-89 victory over Charlotte. The highlight of the night came in the 3rd quarter when Olynyk channeled his inner Kevin [...]

Recap: Celtics get healthy against Minnesota.

Recap: Celtics get healthy against Minnesota.

Coming off a three game slump of increasingly depressing play, but with a whole weekend of rest, the Celtics had an opportunity to work off some frustrations against a weaker team on Monday night, and that’s pretty much what happened. The Celtics’ offense clicked along about as well as it has at any point this [...]

How to beat… the Minnesota Timberwolves

How to beat… the Minnesota Timberwolves

The Celtics have been scuffling a bit lately, and are a loss away from dropping to the .500 mark. The Timberwolves, meanwhile, are on an upswing, and have made a few adjustments that are capitalizing on the strengths of their exciting young players. The Wolves have a ton of talent. Aside from the obvious “contain [...]

Recap: Hawks pick-and-roll Celtics to death

Recap: Hawks pick-and-roll Celtics to death

This was not a great night. The Celtics completely abandoned their usual defensive principles and the Hawks tore them to shreds with pick and roll after pick and roll. Defensively the Hawks forced nearly two dozen Celtics turnovers that left the C’s scrambling for any semblance of an offense. Amazingly the Celtics were not only [...]
