Amir Johnson gets the boot

Amir Johnson gets the boot

We have injury updates on the Celtics forwards: Amir Johnson in a boot to quicken left foot recovery. Out tonight, but could play Saturday at Detroit. — Steve Bulpett (@SteveBHoop) December 23, 2015 Jared Sullinger said discomfort is from glut, not back. Present at shootaround. Unsure about tonight but not concerned long term. #Celtics — [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Smart is nearly back – and then what?

Your Morning Dump… Where Smart is nearly back – and then what?

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. In Smart’s absence, Isaiah Thomas elevated to a starting role and has given Boston’s once inconsistent first-unit offense a jolt. According to the league’s lineup data, [...]

Videos of the Day: All the KG you can handle

Videos of the Day: All the KG you can handle

The Celtics’ offense was firing on all cylinders last night, but the score of the game took a back seat to the return of Kevin Garnett. KG was serenaded by a raucous Garden crowd all night, with chants of “WE WANT K-G..” and “THANK YOU K-G..” It culminated late in the 4th when to the [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where KG gets his moment (despite Sam Mitchell)

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. “That was classic,” said Garnett after the 113-99 final. “That was like cherry on top for me. My teammates were looking at me like, ‘What is [...]

Recap: Celtics get healthy against Minnesota.

Recap: Celtics get healthy against Minnesota.

Coming off a three game slump of increasingly depressing play, but with a whole weekend of rest, the Celtics had an opportunity to work off some frustrations against a weaker team on Monday night, and that’s pretty much what happened. The Celtics’ offense clicked along about as well as it has at any point this [...]

GGTV episode 9.5: Trade Bait to NBA JAM!

After a month-long hiatus, the Gang gets back in the studio to talk the double-overtime loss to the Warriors, and speculate wildly about trade rumors– principally surrounding the Kings’ DeMarcus Cousins and the Rockets’ Dwight Howard.  Later, they reminisce over the video game NBA JAM in a fun exercise where they put together their favorite [...]

How to beat… the Minnesota Timberwolves

How to beat… the Minnesota Timberwolves

The Celtics have been scuffling a bit lately, and are a loss away from dropping to the .500 mark. The Timberwolves, meanwhile, are on an upswing, and have made a few adjustments that are capitalizing on the strengths of their exciting young players. The Wolves have a ton of talent. Aside from the obvious “contain [...]

Your Afternoon Dump..Where Stevens May Alter the Lineup

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. Brad Stevens is apparently tired of simply riding out the storm. The Celtics have lost three straight games, and the optics within have been quite unpleasant, [...]

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 11: Frustration, help coming, and Lee’s a net negative

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 11: Frustration, help coming, and Lee’s a net negative

Scrap everything we said last week, because this past week saw the Celtics get progressively worse over their three games… all losses. Kelly Olynyk is frustrating… and we wonder what it will take to get him in the right place mentally (so does Brad Stevens, by the way). So is Avery Bradley (which might be [...]
