Recap: C’s find shooting touch against Knicks

Recap:  C’s find shooting touch against Knicks

If you’re like me and you are a… ahem… “seasoned” Celtics fan you remember the old days when the Celtics would play a game a year out at the old Hartford Civic Center.  The way the Celtics shot against the Knicks, though, they might want to go back to playing in Hartford more often.  The [...]

VIDEO: Marcus Smart’s defense vs PHI

VIDEO: Marcus Smart’s defense vs PHI

Early returns from training camp has Celtics coach (among others) doling out high praise for Marcus Smart’s defense.  In the first preseason game against Philadelphia (I know, I know) he lived up to the hype.  Granted, the clip below isn’t EVERY defensive possession as he did have some bad moments.  Overall though, he was impressive [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Stevens don’t need no stinking box score to evaluate Smart

Your Morning Dump… Where Stevens don’t need no stinking box score to evaluate Smart

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Smart didn’t shoot the ball particularly well in Boston’s two intra-squad scrimmages, but he was one of just two players (Kelly Olynyk was the other) to win [...]

Missiles Marcus: Fire at will

Missiles Marcus: Fire at will

After watching just an open practice scrimmage and one preseason game, one thing can be determined about Marcus Thornton: he will shoot.  With or without notice, with or without a defender guarding him, he will launch.  Last night it felt like there were two of him out there, even the JumboTron operator was fooled.  Ball [...]

Evan Turner Impresses in First Preseason Game

Evan Turner Impresses in First Preseason Game

At least for one night, the critics of Evan Turner can insert foot in mouth. ET played outstanding during Boston’s win against Philadelphia last night in their first preseason game. Turner finished with 15 points, 10 rebounds, and 6 assists over 31 minutes in the 98-78 Celtic win. He also finished a team best plus-19 in [...]

Recap: The boys are back… in preseason form

Recap:  The boys are back… in preseason form

We might not have a ton to look forward to this season, but I think it’s always fun to see basketball back on my TV.  It took Tommy Heinsohn 70 seconds to call a ref’s call bogus.  Mike Gorman is still the best play-by-play guy in the business (and his burn on Michael Carter Williams [...]

How does a Rondo max contract affect the Celtics after the new TV deal

How does a Rondo max contract affect the Celtics after the new TV deal

The big debate around here this season is whether to give Rondo a full five-year, maximum contract offer.  Putting aside the critics who want him gone no matter what, there is some debate over whether Rondo deserves the absolute maximum salary of 28% of the Celtics salary cap, and the absolute maximum five-year contract at [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Gerald Wallace is content to coast

  Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. His outlook would seem to make him as much a part of the player development staff as an on-court factor. “I think so,” Wallace said. “I [...]
