Recap: 4th quarter collapse leads to another awful loss

Recap: 4th quarter collapse leads to another awful loss

In a game they pretty much controlled for about 3 quarters, the Celtics wilted badly in the final 12 minutes and lost to the Pistons, 99-94. The Celtics started fast by attacking the paint and beating Andre Drummond with slick interior passing. Their shooting slowly deteriorated from there but, even after shooting 8-28 FG in [...]

Recap: Celtics display toughness, get payback over Nets

Recap: Celtics display toughness, get payback over Nets

After two terrible losses, the Celtics traveled to Brooklyn for a gut check game. Not only did the Cs win, 103-94, but they outhustled and outmuscled the Nets, scoring 54 points in the paint in leading almost the entire 48 minutes. Jae Crowder posted a career-high 25 points, including a cold-blooded three-pointer that put the [...]

Recap: Celtics follow up bad loss with worse loss

Recap: Celtics follow up bad loss with worse loss

Well, the Celtics managed to cram about six minutes of competent basketball into four quarters this afternoon and lost disgracefully to a team that is even worse than the Los Angeles Lakers. The final score, 100-97, does not reflect how poorly Boston played for the bulk of this game. The first quarter of this matinee [...]

Recap: Lakers show up to play, Celtics don’t-predictable results ensue

Recap: Lakers show up to play, Celtics don’t-predictable results ensue

With the exception of about three minutes in the fourth quarter and a couple in the first, the Celtics didn’t just play to the level of their competition tonight, they played below it. They were worse than a team with a placeholder coach trying desperately to keep a top-three protected pick, losing to the Lakers [...]

Recap: Celtics keep Knicks at bay

Recap: Celtics keep Knicks at bay

There are only a handful of teams that can beat the Celtics in the half court when they show up to play. New York is not one of them. The Celtics won their fourth straight tonight, beating New York 100-91. The first quarter played out thus: The Celtics looked like a team that was playing [...]

Recap: Celtics hold off Pistons in Detroit

Recap: Celtics hold off Pistons in Detroit

Despite some sketchy (to put it nicely) officiating in the final minute & change, the Celtics got a 99-93 win over the Pistons in Detroit tonight. Three Reggie Jackson foul shots, the result of a bad call with 1:08 left, enabled Detroit to cut what was once a 16 point fourth quarter Boston lead to 92-85 [...]

Recap: Ferocious Olynyk leads Celtics over Hornets

Recap: Ferocious Olynyk leads Celtics over Hornets

Ferocious isn’t an adjective often associated with Kelly Olynk. But the quiet Canadian played that way tonight, scoring a team high 20 points (7-10 FG, 9 reb) including two buckets late that sealed the Celtics 102-89 victory over Charlotte. The highlight of the night came in the 3rd quarter when Olynyk channeled his inner Kevin [...]

Recap: Celtics get healthy against Minnesota.

Recap: Celtics get healthy against Minnesota.

Coming off a three game slump of increasingly depressing play, but with a whole weekend of rest, the Celtics had an opportunity to work off some frustrations against a weaker team on Monday night, and that’s pretty much what happened. The Celtics’ offense clicked along about as well as it has at any point this [...]

Recap: Hawks pick-and-roll Celtics to death

Recap: Hawks pick-and-roll Celtics to death

This was not a great night. The Celtics completely abandoned their usual defensive principles and the Hawks tore them to shreds with pick and roll after pick and roll. Defensively the Hawks forced nearly two dozen Celtics turnovers that left the C’s scrambling for any semblance of an offense. Amazingly the Celtics were not only [...]

Recap: Stopped short

Recap: Stopped short

A 119-116 loss to the Pistons is the end result to an inconsistent effort tonight by the Boston Celtics. The defense that this young squad hangs it’s hat on struggled once again and fans are asking how much longer until Marcus Smart comes back.. We all know how important it is for teams to get [...]
