Recap: Clippers coast by the Celtics

Recap: Clippers coast by the Celtics

WARNING: Rated R – May not be suitable for all audiences My God. This is a game that you hoped the Celtics would be competitive, and at least give us another reminder that we were close to becoming a serious team. Instead the Celtics got absolutely spanked at home in a game that even had [...]

Recap: C’s suck for 3 quarters, fall short in furious comeback

Recap: C’s suck for 3 quarters, fall short in furious comeback

For 3 quarters, the Boston Celtics looked nothing like the team that made so many of us get excited for their improbable playoff run. They looked lost, slow, and unfocused while letting Miami take a massive lead without Dwyane Wade, Hassan Whiteside, and Chris Andersen. There was no redeeming quality to the Celtics effort in [...]

Recap: Olynyk, Turner, Celts top Nets, 110-91, regain 8th seed

Recap: Olynyk, Turner, Celts top Nets, 110-91, regain 8th seed

As Cedric Maxwell said on the telecast, “Welcome back, Kelly Olynyk!” Olynyk rebounded from his recent shooting woes to spark the Celtics to a 110-91 road win over the Brooklyn Nets. The Canadian scored 18 points on 7-12 shooting, including 3-5 on 3-pointers. Evan Turner also starred with a triple-double of 19 points, 10 rebounds [...]

Recap: Celtics run out of gas in OT. Drop opening game of critical week

Recap: Celtics run out of gas in OT. Drop opening game of critical week

The Celtics battled hard for 48-minute against the Pistons tonight. Unfortunately, someone forgot to tell them the game went on for 53. A thin depth chart and late-game offensive stagnation led to a 105-97 home loss to Detroit. The Pistons started OT on a 7-0 run and the Cs were outscored 17-9 in the extra frame, ultimately costing [...]

Recap: Spurs dominate Celtics despite late Boston run, Smart ejected

Recap: Spurs dominate Celtics despite late Boston run, Smart ejected

I’m really not sure there’s much analysis necessary for a game like this. The San Antonio Spurs started the game out hot and then cruised for most of the game against the Celtics.  It’s not that Boston didn’t fight until the end… they certainly played hard and made their runs.  In fact, they made a [...]

Recap: Winning streak ends as Celtics fall to Thunder, 122-118

Recap: Winning streak ends as Celtics fall to Thunder, 122-118

The Celtics’ 5-game winning streak and their playoff momentum were both interrupted Wednesday night, largely by MVP candidate Russell Westbrook. Despite a strong first half and a 4-point lead at halftime, Boston couldn’t stop the Oklahoma City offense and fell to the Thunder, 122-118. Weirdly, however, even with the loss Boston took sole possession of [...]

Recap: Celtics cruise to blowout win over the Sixers

Celtics did what good teams are supposed to do to lowly tanking teams, beat the snot out of them. This game was never in doubt from start to finish as the Celtics went on to win 108-89. The win puts the Celtics at 30-36, and in a tie with Indiana for the seventh seed with [...]

Recap: Playoff push gets real as Celtics win at Indy

The question of playoffs or lottery has been answered: playoffs all the way. The Celtics settled the issue with a solid 93-89 road win over the Indiana Pacers, until tonight the hottest team in the NBA. After taking an 18-16 lead with 2 minutes to play in the 1st quarter, the Cs held off the [...]

Recap: Celtics execute down the stretch, top Grizz 95-92

It was a game that showed just how bright the Celtics’ future might be. Against one of the NBA’s best squads, the Celts got the coaching, the shooting, and the execution they needed down the stretch to pull out a gritty win, 95-92, over the Memphis Grizzlies. That was despite the absence of dynamic 6th [...]

Recap: Celtics hold off dirty, rotten, no-good Heat

Recap: Celtics hold off dirty, rotten, no-good Heat

The Celtics rebounded from yesterday’s disheartening loss in Orlando with a gritty, gutty 100-90 victory over the gutless Miami Heat. Isaiah Thomas played the closer yet again, scoring 12 of his 25 points in the 4th quarter. Aging cheap-shot artist Dwyane Wade had a big 4th quarter too, (15 of his game-high 34 points), but [...]
