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 [...]

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 [...]

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: [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

How to beat… The Charlotte Hornets

How to beat… The Charlotte Hornets

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
