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

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

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

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

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

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 [...]

Well, don’t we all feel better about our beloved Celtics after they whipped off a Gino Time win against the Wolves. The up-and-down Celtics are up again… and if they want to stay up, they have to beat the Hornets again. Here’s how they’ll do it this time. 1: Defend the 3! The Hornets are [...]
