Recap: Celtics lose to Sixers in Summer League ‘action’ as Young struggles again

The first 5 minutes of this game between the Celtics and the Sixers was quintessential Summer League: in other words, it sucked. Score 3-1, Boston, with combined 1-16 shooting. Then it actually got worse for the Celtics, as they lost to Philadelphia, 76-62, and are now 0-2 in the Utah Summer League. Here is actual [...]

Recap: Celtics eliminated with loss in wild Game 4

Recap: Celtics eliminated with loss in wild Game 4

The Celtics’ season of over-achieving ended today with a fourth straight playoff loss to Cleveland, 101-93, a game that featured injuries, cheap shots, flagrant fouls, ejections, and a near-miracle finish. And the Celts might have won it if they had only shot a little bit better from the arc and the free-throw line. Boston fell [...]

Recap: Cavs push C’s to the brink of a sweep

Recap: Cavs push C’s to the brink of a sweep

Well, here we are, right where we thought we’d probably be. For some reason, though, it’s a little sadder than I expected. Maybe that’s because for a significant portion of the first half, the Celtics played pretty well. But every time the Celtics put together even a long stretch of sustained good basketball, it was [...]

Recap: Tristan Thompson killed the Celtics tonight

Recap: Tristan Thompson killed the Celtics tonight

A man who did not score a point, nor take a shot absolutely demolished the Celtics tonight. I’m talking about Tristan Thompson and his 5 offensive rebounds, all of which seemed to come at crucial moments when the Celtics needed to have a stop. Thompson’s clutch hustle, LeBron James 30 points and Timofey Mozgov’s 5 [...]

Recap: Celtics can’t stop Irving, lose Game 1 to Cavs, 113-100

The Celtics looked good for a while in their playoff opener, but Kyrie Irving proved too much to handle. The All-Star guard shot 11-21, with 5 treys, and topped all scorers with 30 points as host Cleveland beat Boston, 113-100, to take Game 1 of their first-round playoff series. Boston led by as many as [...]

Recap: Gigi snuffs out the Bucks on last night of regular season

It took Boston a little time to get started tonight, as Milwaukee looked like the hungrier more interested team from the outset. We saw a lot of jumpers and little defense from the Celts through much of the 1st. Couple that with 7 turnovers and you get yourself one lackluster 1st quarter. Khris Middleton absolutely [...]

Jae Crowder for the game-winner! Celtics win, 95-93! pic.twitter.com/BT6Vs8iwN5 — Peter Stringer (@peterstringer) April 15, 2015 Boom. Where LeBron at? We coming for you, King James. Jae Crowder’s corner fadeaway with 0.8 seconds remaining propelled the Celtics past the Raptors, 95-93, and into a 1st round playoff match-up with the Cleveland Cavaliers. How did the [...]

Recap: Cavs rest while Celtics coast to victory

Recap: Cavs rest while Celtics coast to victory

In a game where Cleveland decided that it would rest their best players, the Celtics did what playoff teams are supposed to do against inferior opponents, bury them. It started off a little bit slow, but after the first frame the Celtics went on a big run, and never looked back. And with the help [...]

Recap: Celtics hold on to beat disinterested Cavs

Yes, LeBron James “played” in this game, but his line of 26 minutes played, 5-14 fg (0-5 3 pt) was indicative of this night for Cleveland. They were like Red in The Shawshank redemption. They didn’t give a shit tonight. It was obvious from the get go. I dunno.. Maybe LeBron thought just stepping onto [...]
