Recap: Celtics awful shooting reaches historic low

Recap: Celtics awful shooting reaches historic low

So much for thinking the Celtics couldn’t play any worse than they did in the first half of Game 1. Tonight the Cs treated us to the worst 1st quarter performance in modern NBA playoff history: 7 points on 3-23 shooting. Only Atlanta’s inability to deliver a death blow kept the Celtics within striking distance for [...]

Mortal enemy Scott Foster is officiating tonight’s game

Mortal enemy Scott Foster is officiating tonight’s game

When your team is in a playoff game with Scott Foster AND Tony Brothers it’s like watching your baby get dangled out of a window. — Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) April 19, 2016 My initial reaction to the news Scott Foster is officiating tonight’s game was… oh shit, we’re screwed. Foster’s officiating can be brutally biased. [...]

Evan Turner finishes 5th in 6th Man voting

Evan Turner finishes 5th in 6th Man voting

The internet is outraged (and if you care about these awards, then justifiably so) that Jamal Crawford won the 6th Man of the Year award again. It’s his third time, but there were definitely more deserving candidates. I bet a lot of the complainers would be placated if you lopped Crawford off the top and [...]

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 30: The Game 2 Preview

Avery Bradley is hurt and will miss Game 2. Kelly Olynyk is hurt and might miss Game 2. Jae Crowder is hurt but he’s playing in Game 2. It all seems like a recipe for disaster, but there is hope for the Celtics if they can just keep their heads in the game and not [...]

Olynyk might also be out for Game 2

We’re already dealing with a pretty tough blow with the loss of Avery Bradley in this series. Now the Celtics, desperate for shooting, are dealing with the potential loss of one of the only guys who can be counted on (usually) to hit 3’s. Kelly Olynyk (right shoulder) will not practice today and coach Brad [...]
