Recap: Celtics, Rondo gag up a loss to the Cavs

Recap: Celtics, Rondo gag up a loss to the Cavs

That sucked. Following a marvelous 42 point 3rd quarter, the Celtics had the Cavaliers on the ropes in front of a raucous Garden crowd. The Cs led by 18 points with 10 minutes remaining. Then… Kyrie Irving got hot, the refs started blowing whistles, LeBron James (41 pts, 7 assists) took over in crunch time [...]

Breaking Down the Celtics Pick and Roll Defensive Struggles

Breaking Down the Celtics Pick and Roll Defensive Struggles

To start the season, the Celtics defense has been disappointing. The team ranks in the bottom five in defensive rating, a statistic that adjusts for pace of play by measuring points per 100 possessions. It seems that the team’s goal of finishing as a top 10 defensive team is a pipe dream at this point, [...]

Anonymous exec: Rondo is close to max guy, Smart is a two-guard

Anonymous exec: Rondo is close to max guy, Smart is a two-guard

SI’s Chris Mannix spoke with one Eastern Conference league executive about Rajon Rondo and Marcus Smart:​ I don’t think Rondo is a max guy, but he is close to it. I’m not huge on point guards getting max deals. Derrick Rose is a max player. Max guys have to be able to carry a team. If [...]

What really hurt the Celtics offense against OKC

The Celtics offense struggled in the 2nd half vs the Thunder Wednesday night, totaling 43 points on 41% shooting. This was well off their 104.6 points per game pace and their 47% field goal percentage for the season.

4 up/4 down: Celtics vs Thunder (Game 7 of 82)

4 up/4 down: Celtics vs Thunder (Game 7 of 82)

For the first time in two seasons the Celtics had a chance to go over .500. Instead Anthony Morrow and Reggie Jackson annihilated us. The Celtics once again played two very different games, in the first half they looked like a playoff team, and in the second half they looked like a team on a [...]

Recap: C’s collapse in 2nd half, get crushed by Jackson/Morrow combo

Recap: C’s collapse in 2nd half, get crushed by Jackson/Morrow combo

For a while, it looked like the Celtics were going to get above .500 for the first time in Brad Stevens’ young coaching career.  They flew out of the gates, and, after some struggles from the bench, asserted themselves adequately to go into halftime with a positive vibe.  The second half could not have been [...]
