Recap: Hawks deliver kill shot to Celtics season

Recap: Hawks deliver kill shot to Celtics season

Thank god that’s over. I love a grit and balls playoff dogfight but this team was borderline unwatchable in the playoffs. Even the victories were brutal. The Hawks choked out the Celtics, 104-92, to win this series in 6 games. Atlanta’s recipe for victory was the same: swarm Isaiah Thomas and dare the others to [...]

Recap: House of Horrors

Recap: House of Horrors

Phillips Arena continued to be Boston’s personal house of horrors tonight, as the Celts get smoked by the Hawks 110-83 in Game 5. The first quarter of tonight’s game was an offensive horror show for both squads. The Celts’ shots simply weren’t falling, but thankfully their pitbull defense was on point. Boston “swarmed” the Hawks [...]

Recap: Mostly dead Celtics come back and win in OT

This Celtics team is something, man. No one can really explain what they’re doing. There’s no formula for this. They’re relying on a Detroit Piston cast-off, a 2nd-year player known as much nationally for his performance art flops as he is for anything else, a good player who’s not himself due to injury, and one [...]

Recap: Celtics win the must-win Game 3

First off, let me preface this blog by saying I’m heavily buzzed. It’s possible all of following will be deleted in the morning. Secondly, what a freakin game! The real Celtics finally showed up at the tip. The defensive intensity was phenomenal and so was the shooting (at least for the 1st quarter). Led by [...]

Recap: Celtics awful shooting reaches historic low

So much for thinking the Celtics couldn’t play any worse than they did in the first half of Game 1. Tonight the Cs treated us to the worst 1st quarter performance in modern NBA playoff history: 7 points on 3-23 shooting. Only Atlanta’s inability to deliver a death blow kept the Celtics within striking distance for [...]

Playoff Recap: Celtics lose opener, and Bradley with injury

Playoff Recap: Celtics lose opener, and Bradley with injury

The Celtics’ opening playoff game was like night and day, from the first half to the second half, as Boston came back from 17 points down at halftime to nearly pull off another of their patented miracles. But in the end, Atlanta hung on for a 102-101 victory that we’ll hope the Cs don’t come to [...]

Recap: Three championship teams and one half of incredible basketball

Recap: Three championship teams and one half of incredible basketball

Well, that was interesting. Boston dropped a steaming pile of basketball over the first twenty-four minutes, and over the final twenty-four looked at least as good as the ’76 Celtics–if not the ’66 or ’86 Celtics. They spotted Miami a 24 point lead and then took it all back and then some, outscoring Miami by [...]

Recap: Celtics fade, lose to Hawks and miss chance to grab third seed

Recap: Celtics fade, lose to Hawks and miss chance to grab third seed

Before the Celtics played the Hawks in a game with huge playoff implications, Brad Stevens told his guys, “Play well. Same thing as yesterday … It isn’t anything different than yesterday. It’s 1 of 79.” Unfortunately, the standings now say differently. The Hawks pulled away in the fourth quarter to take this one, 118-107, and [...]

Recap: Zeller, Celtics spank the Bucks

Recap: Zeller, Celtics spank the Bucks

After a hot start from the Milwaukee Bucks and Giannis Antetokounmpo, Boston took things over and cruised to a 124-109 win at TD Garden. The Greek Freak was feeling it early for the Bucks. And a lackluster defense from Boston didn’t help matters. After Giannis scored 11 points, many uncontested, in the first 4 minutes, [...]

Recap: Cs edge feisty Pelicans with bare minimum effort

Recap: Cs edge feisty Pelicans with bare minimum effort

The 29 win Pelicans – fresh off a 14 point loss to the lowly 76ers – walked into the Garden tonight with a starting lineup of Omer Asik, James Ennis, Toney Douglas, Alexis Ajinca, and Dante Cunningham. And that jumbled mess of mediocrity proceeded to engage the Celtics in a fight to the death. Fortunately, [...]
