Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics are the next Celtics

Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics are the next Celtics

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. Some dubbed the Celtics the “Baby Hawks” before the start of the 2015-16 season because of their starless-but-on-the-rise roster. Stevens prefers his team develop its own [...]

Recap: Celtics close out strong to beat Hawks, 106-93, behind Amir, IT

Some NBA forecasters predicted that the Celtics might turn out to be this season’s version of the Atlanta Hawks – a deep team that overachieves despite lacking a superstar. On Friday night, we saw that it’s an actual possibility. The Celtics beat Atlanta, 106-93, behind 23 points and 10 assists from Isaiah Thomas, and Amir [...]

How to beat… The Atlanta Hawks

How to beat… The Atlanta Hawks

This has the potential to not be much fun. The Atlanta Hawks are 8-2 and in a virtual tie atop the East. They have three regulars with PER’s higher than 20. They are, to sum it up succinctly, very good. Here’s how the not-as-good Celtics can beat the Atlanta Hawks tonight. 1: Protect the damn [...]

Danny radio highlights: Slow down on Cousins; ’86 team greatest ever

Danny radio highlights: Slow down on Cousins; ’86 team greatest ever

As John pointed out in today’s Morning Dump, the sudden speculation about the Celtics trading for DeMarcus Cousins is waaaay premature. And none other than Danny Ainge agrees with him. This morning, the Celtics president made his weekly appearance on the Toucher & Rich radio show, where he was asked hypothetically if he would trade [...]

Recap: Celtics lose another to Pacers and Paul George, 102-91

Maybe you can be competitive in the NBA without a superstar, but when the other team has one and you can’t stop him, that’s a problem. One week after the Celtics lost by two points in Indiana, Boston again fell to the Pacers in TD Garden, 102-91. Paul George, who surely is a superstar, made [...]

Recap: R(ebound) J(umper) Hunter shows up, does work.

The Celtics made it back to .500 with a convincing 99-83 win in Milwaukee against a Bucks team that is long on length and short on depth. After spotting the Bucks the first 8 points and forcing Brad to call a “You guys do realize that this is an actual game, not a scrimmage?” timeout [...]

Celtics Offense Set to Improve

Celtics Offense Set to Improve

The Celtics offense showed signs of life last Friday against the Wizards following a few underwhelming performances. Still, the offense ranks in the middle of the pack to start the season. The defense has picked the team up, ranking in the top 10 to start the year. Neither of these rankings are a fluke. After the [...]
