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 [...]

How to beat… The Atlanta Hawks

How to beat… The Atlanta Hawks

The Celtics and the Hawks are both having up-and-down seasons. We might have expected that for Boston, but not for the Hawks, who have regressed a bit after last year’s dominant regular season. Few expected that this meeting, a week from Christmas (the REAL start to the NBA season), would involve two teams with nearly [...]

Recap: Stopped short

Recap: Stopped short

A 119-116 loss to the Pistons is the end result to an inconsistent effort tonight by the Boston Celtics. The defense that this young squad hangs it’s hat on struggled once again and fans are asking how much longer until Marcus Smart comes back.. We all know how important it is for teams to get [...]

Enemy Chatter: Crowder can hold his breath waiting for that apology

Enemy Chatter: Crowder can hold his breath waiting for that apology

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Cleveland. J.R. Smith made it known that he wasn’t giving an apology to Jae Crowder before Tuesday night’s game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics, and he confirmed it afterward. [...]

How to beat… The Detroit Pistons

How to beat… The Detroit Pistons

Here we are in another road back-to-back… and after the sting of of that loss to the Cavs, the Celtics may well come out with their trademark intensity in these situations. The Pistons are dangerous, but beatable. Their two best players are flawed and can be exposed… and here’s how. 1: Let Avery Bradley loose [...]

Recap: Celtics fizzle in the second half, fall to Cavs

Recap: Celtics fizzle in the second half, fall to Cavs

This was the Celtics’ fourth “big game” in less than a week. After facing Chicago, Golden State and Charlotte and playing wire to wire in all three of them (coming out with wins in two), this was another tough match up, one that the Cavs took, 89-77. Cleveland came in riding a three game winning [...]

How to beat… the Cleveland Cavaliers

How to beat… the Cleveland Cavaliers

So… everyone loves the Celtics again, which actually scares me a bit. It’s always when everyone hops aboard the bandwagon that the thing starts to get rickety. And oh, LeBron and the Cavs are in town and there’s some animosity between these two teams. Can the Celtics keep living up to this hype and beat [...]

Recap: Gritty Celtics bounce back to beat Hornets

Recap: Gritty Celtics bounce back to beat Hornets

All the excitement, energy and hype of Friday in Boston was long gone on Saturday in Charlotte. At least in the first half. But the second half brought back the intensity of the Warriors game, and this time the Celtics got the huge win, 98-93. Obviously, it was a great bounce back effort after a [...]
