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 [...]

How to beat… The Atlanta Hawks

How to beat… The Atlanta Hawks

The Celtics and the Hawks are both having up-and-down seasons. We might have expected that for Boston, but not for the Hawks, who have regressed a bit after last year’s dominant regular season. Few expected that this meeting, a week from Christmas (the REAL start to the NBA season), would involve two teams with nearly [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where we long for a return to the Boogie rumors

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

If the Rockets move Dwight Howard, should Boston make a deal?

If the Rockets move Dwight Howard, should Boston make a deal?

The Rockets are still playing like crap and there’s speculation Daryl Morey might dump his soft, clownish big man Dwight Howard. The 30-year-old Howard is reportedly unhappy with his role on the team and he can opt-out of his contract after this season. Maybe Houston wants to get something before Howard bolts. ESPN Insider Kevin [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where we second guess two of Brad Stevens’ decisions

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Three of those points were scored on free throws after Thomas intentionally fouled him with 2:54 left. This is where the confusion begins. Celtics coach Brad [...]

Enemy Chatter: Crowder can hold his breath waiting for that apology

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Cleveland. J.R. Smith made it known that he wasn’t giving an apology to Jae Crowder before Tuesday night’s game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics, and he confirmed it afterward. [...]

How to beat… The Detroit Pistons

How to beat… The Detroit Pistons

Here we are in another road back-to-back… and after the sting of of that loss to the Cavs, the Celtics may well come out with their trademark intensity in these situations. The Pistons are dangerous, but beatable. Their two best players are flawed and can be exposed… and here’s how. 1: Let Avery Bradley loose [...]
