Recap: Jared “Lovenger” leads C’s comeback win in Brooklyn

Recap: Jared “Lovenger” leads C’s comeback win in Brooklyn

  Last week, I wrote this of Jared Sullinger: There was a time this summer that Sullinger was one of the pieces talked about in a trade for Kevin Love. Now he is hoping to become a sort of Love clone. Sullinger prides himself on rebounding, and he is a big fan of shooting the [...]

Recap: Celtics Drop Bombs on Philly, Win 111-91

Recap: Celtics Drop Bombs on Philly, Win 111-91

This was a classic (but rare these days) wire-to-wire shellacking the Celtics gave the Sixers.  You knew it would be serious when Rondo sported the upside-down headband. The Celtics bombed away early and often from the three-point line, finishing 15-37 (!) a solid 41% clip.  Avery Bradley drilled 6 in the first half, while Jeff [...]

Recap: Celtics bench nearly steals one from Raptors

Recap: Celtics bench nearly steals one from Raptors

There was a distinct pattern to tonight’s game.  The 1st and 3rd quarters belonged to the Raptors (outscored C’s 48-32), while the 2nd and 4th quarters primarily belonged to the Celtics (57-44 C’s advantage).  Unfortunately for Boston, the Raptors had just enough at the end to come away with a 92-89 win. The Celtics were [...]

Recap: Celtics fall to Knicks in preseason G4

Recap: Celtics fall to Knicks in preseason G4

Boston was bombs away early tonight. The Celtics came out chucking, putting in 3 of the 6 treys they attempted in the 1st quarter. The Knicks were aggressive on offense all evening, trying to take advantage of a tired Celts team playing it’s second end of a back-to-back. But the C’s survived the early New [...]

Recap: Celtics lose game of runs in Toronto

Recap: Celtics lose game of runs in Toronto

The Celtics faced probably their best competition of the season tonight.  The Sixers are tanking preseason games and the Knicks are discombobulated mess trying to fit square pegs in round holes with their offense.  The Raps, meanwhile, are division contenders and probably no worse than a 4/5 seed in the playoffs. I’ll give it to the [...]

Recap:  C’s find shooting touch against Knicks

If you’re like me and you are a… ahem… “seasoned” Celtics fan you remember the old days when the Celtics would play a game a year out at the old Hartford Civic Center.  The way the Celtics shot against the Knicks, though, they might want to go back to playing in Hartford more often.  The [...]

Recap:  The boys are back… in preseason form

We might not have a ton to look forward to this season, but I think it’s always fun to see basketball back on my TV.  It took Tommy Heinsohn 70 seconds to call a ref’s call bogus.  Mike Gorman is still the best play-by-play guy in the business (and his burn on Michael Carter Williams [...]

Recap: Summer League game 4

Recap: Summer League game 4

Behind a big 4th quarter from Marcus Smart, the Celts beat the Orlando Magic 76-67 this evening. This was easily Smart’s best performance yet, and the rookie played very well at times on both sides of the ball. He was a complete pest & instigator on defense, and despite some early offensive struggles, he stayed [...]
