Your Morning Dump… Just how good is the 2016 draft class again?

Your Morning Dump… Just how good is the 2016 draft class again?

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. No matter how frustrating things get for Celtics, there’s always picks 1, 10, 14, 21, 33, 42, 55 to fall back on. pic.twitter.com/5WMwoeZXtg — Chris Forsberg [...]

Recap: Celtics fight, but drop close game to Indiana

Recap: Celtics fight, but drop close game to Indiana

The Celtics trotted out a surprise starting lineup of Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley, Jae Crowder, Amir Johnson, and Jared Sullinger. With Marcus Smart out, I expected a move to go with Evan Turner… but Brad Stevens decided to try his hand with Thomas. And since Thomas and Johnson are joined at the hip, Amir started [...]

Marcus Smart’s toe injury took place sometime at practice yesterday, felt funny yesterday. Missed shootaround today and was ruled out. — Adam Himmelsbach (@AdamHimmelsbach) November 4, 2015 No word yet on who will get the start tonight against the Pacers, but don’t be surprised to see Evan Turner out there. To make matters worse, Avery [...]

The Eastern Conference Overreaction Post

Well, with every team in the East having played at least 2 games, it’s time to make some snap judgments about the teams in what is probably the fourth or fifth best conference in professional basketball. Detroit (3-0): Stan van Gundy is on track to win coach-of-the year. Toronto (3-0): Clearly, this team is going [...]

Weekly AUERBACH ratings: Bigs drop big, bench Evan Turner

The first three games are in the books, and the results weren’t really very good at all. After the first week of real basketball, our proprietary AUERBACH system of evaluating basketball (Augmented User-Envisioned Reality Basketball Assumption and Categorization Hypotheses) is especially hard on most of the Celtics front court. Overall, the frontcourt’s AUERBACH rating is down [...]
