How to beat… the Golden State Warriors

How to beat… the Golden State Warriors

The story of Achilles is among the more famous in Greek Mythology. In summary, to protect Achilles from the wrath of Zeus, he was made immortal by baptism in the river Styx. The whole of his body was protected except the part by which he was held and dipped into the water… his heel. Achilles [...]

How to beat… the Chicago Bulls

How to beat… the Chicago Bulls

Man, I can’t wait for Friday. I really feel like the Celtics have a chance to beat Golden State. They’re obviously a buzzsaw but maybe… just maybe they can… What do you mean they play tonight? Why you always lyin?   [checks schedule] Oh. So they do play tonight. Against the Bulls. Shit. OK… well… [...]

How to beat… The New Orleans Pelicans

How to beat… The New Orleans Pelicans

The Celtics seem to have gotten past their effort issues, showing up with strong efforts in their last 3 games (resulting in 2 wins and an excellent showing against San Antonio). Tonight they head to New Orleans to face a bad team with one the best young talents in the league. Personally, I’d trade every [...]

How to beat… The San Antonio Spurs

How to beat… The San Antonio Spurs

OK, Celtics, you’re on a little bit of a roll now… you’ve dispatched a good Heat team and rolled past the Kings. Now the fun begins. The San Antonio Spurs will be the toughest test of the year… even tougher than when they played the first time around… which is when this happened. This Spurs [...]

How to beat… the Sacramento Kings

How to beat… the Sacramento Kings

The Jekyll-and-Hyde Celtics have had a few days off to bask in the glory of a high-quality win over the Miami Heat. They’ve spent the past few days hanging with tiny masked wrestlers and taking in the sights of Mexico City… but this is a business trip, and there is not-so-easy business to take care [...]

How to beat… The Miami Heat

How to beat… The Miami Heat

This is a big early game for the Celtics. They’ve scuffled through a bunch of games recently and there’s some grumbling among the players. Miami is a pretty good team right now, but they are far from unbeatable. The Celtics need a quality win right now… and they can get it if they follow this [...]

How to beat… the Washington Wizards

How to beat… the Washington Wizards

OK Boston Celtics, we’ve had just about enough of your shenanigans. We know you’re not perfect, but we know you’re better than this. You know it too. Tonight, we have an opportunity to put all that other stuff behind us and feel good about ourselves again. The Washington Wizards are in town. They are struggling [...]

How to beat… the 76’ers

How to beat… the 76’ers

Is everyone ok? Did you all survive the Celtics’ crash back to earth? Good. Last week’s success quickly turned into a pair of awful failures at the hands of the Nets and Hawks. There’s no need to rehash those losses here (go cry in the recap comments if you must). Today we’re moving on and [...]

How to beat… The Atlanta Hawks

How to beat… The Atlanta Hawks

  Congratulations, Celtics, for bringing everyone an unwelcome dose of reality. The loss to Brooklyn stung in so many ways, but it also should have driven home a very key point: You can’t relax against anyone and expect to do well. The Atlanta Hawks will be looking to avenge a loss that started them on [...]

How to beat… the Brooklyn Nets

How to beat… the Brooklyn Nets

Now that a little dose of reality has been administered, I think we can rule out a “taking a bad team lightly” game from the Celtics. The guys have learned that they’re pretty damn good when they’re fully engaged, and they can be pretty bad when they get aloof and slack off. It’s a nice [...]
