What should the Celtics do to better close out games?

What should the Celtics do to better close out games?

Much has been made out of the Celtics inability to close out tight games, and with good reason. Four of their seven losses have come by five points or less. Boston’s most frustrating loss of the season came at home against the Cleveland Cavaliers, where they blew a 17 point lead in the 4th quarter. While [...]

Recap: All Gasol All The Time

Recap: All Gasol All The Time

Tonight’s game vs the Grizzlies at the FedEx Forum started off exactly as we thought it would. Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph had their way feasted in the paint, and Mike Conley picked apart a porous C’s defense. Memphis shot 52% in the first quarter, while Boston couldn’t break 20 points. It was 25-16 after one. [...]

Dividing Minutes between the Celtics Frontcourt

Brad Stevens is going to have some difficult decisions to make regarding his frontcourt rotations this season. The Celtics have four players (five if you include Jeff Green) who currently deserve significant minutes and Vitor Faverani is on his way back from injury, and rookie Dwight Powell who will most likely spend the majority of [...]

Is Rondo the “best” worst free throw shooting guard ever?

Is Rondo the “best” worst free throw shooting guard ever?

Rajon Rondo’s wretched free throw shooting against Phoenix (2-10) set off a firestorm of comments about his poor shooting from 15-feet. He’s a career 61% FT shooter and there’s been no improvement throughout his career. When we think of bad free throw shooters, we think of Ben Wallace, Shaquille O’Neal, Dwight Howard, Chris Dudley and [...]

Recap: Bass, Sullinger tag-team knocks out 76ers

After a lack-luster first half, the Celtics were in danger of becoming the first victim of the 0-10 76ers. But Brad Stevens said something to the boys in the locker room and the C’s responded. Boston protected the ball, eliminated Philly’s second chance opportunities and, most importantly, kept running in the 2nd half. The 101-90 [...]

Fo’ questions on the Celtics with Philadunkia

The guys at 76ers blog Philadunkia wanted my take on Evan Turner, tonight’s game and a few other Celtics related items. Here’s the Q&A: From a distance it seems that our man Evan “The Enigma” Turner was struggling off the bench for Boston, then got a start and put up solid numbers. But since then [...]
