Recap: Celtics play ugly, lose ugly in Chicago

Recap: Celtics play ugly, lose ugly in Chicago

Oscar Wilde once wrote “it is better to be beautiful than to be good. But… it is better to be good than to be ugly.” The Celtics, tonight, were ugly, and quite far from good Sure, they kept things close for a while, and they made a nice little run in the last couple of [...]

Recap:  C’s blow another lead, end 2013 with a disappointing loss.

This was a generally sloppy game, which is to be expected when you play at 1 p.m. in a freezing cold gym. Both teams came out cold, but he Celtics were able to capitalize on Atlanta’s sloppiness to take a first quarter lead.  They tried to blow the game open in the second quarter, but [...]

Recap: Celtics blow another lead, survive what should have been a blowout

Recap: Celtics blow another lead, survive what should have been a blowout

Before today’s game, we learned the Cleveland Cavaliers had suspended Andrew Bynum “indefinitely” for conduct detrimental to the team.  For three quarters of today’s game, the Cavaliers participated in “conduct detrimental to the team”… also known as “playing basketball.”  The Celtics led by 20 with a minute to go in the 3rd, but that lead [...]

Recap: Bah humbug

Recap: Bah humbug

Not as big a first quarter start as we’ve become accustomed to, but Boston was only down 20-17 after 1Q tonight in Indiana. Avery Bradley was hot early, (again) putting in 9 points in the first quarter. In the second quarter, the Celtics started to look more like a team that was on the second [...]

Recap: Sloppy and lazy 2nd half costs C’s victory over Wiz

Damn, this team is a tease. The Celtics raced out to another fast start (30-14 1st quarter) only to gradually fall apart over the final 3 quarters. Once the Wizards ramped up their defense in the 2nd half, the Celtics wilted. They got sloppy and lazy. I believe 9 of their 12 TOs came in [...]

Recap: Green misses game-winner, C’s lose by one to Pistons

The Celtics had a chance to win the game with five seconds remaining, but Jeff Green couldn’t finish a well-contested layup, and they fell to Detroit 107-106. On a night where trade talk was expected to dominate discussion, it seemed like the Celtics’ offense was going to let us forget about the rumors. That was [...]

Recap:  Sullinger finishes what Bradley starts in win over Wolves

Avery Bradley scored 19 points in the first-through-third quarters, then Jared Sullinger finished things off with 15 4th quarter points as the Celtics out-lasted the Minnesota Timberwolves 101-97. The Celtics started out hot, but they gave back all of an 8 point first quarter lead and more, trailing by 6 at one point.  But Bradley [...]

Recap: In a game of runs, Celtics eclipse Knicks

After blowing a big second-quarter lead, the Celtics fought back against the New York Knicks at the TD Garden to get a 90-86 win; their second against the Knicks in only five days. The game got off to a great start, with Jared Sullinger continuing his abuse on Andrea Bargnani, and Carmelo Anthony managing to [...]

Recap: Bench comes up empty in hard-fought loss to Doc, Clippers

Let me get “The Gross” out of the way early.  The Celtics bench made just two baskets and scored four points tonight, leaving the starters to do all of the scoring.  Amazingly, the team still managed 88 points.  Too bad the Clippers had 96. The Celtics led by 9 late in the second quarter, and [...]

Recap: Brook Lopez is an unstoppable force

Damn you, Brook Lopez. Damn your 7-feet and damn your 275 pounds. Despite the best of efforts from Jared Sullinger and Brandon Bass, the Celtics could not stop Lopez (24 points, 10-13 FG). Aside from a quick 12-5 start by the Celtics, the Nets controlled this game. The pesky C’s kept fighting, but every time [...]
