Recap: Defenseless Celtics burned by Magic bench

Recap: Defenseless Celtics burned by Magic bench

With a win tonight in Orlando, the Celtics had a chance to leapfrog Atlanta and Chicago into the 3rd seed in the East.

The Celtics are on a nice 5-game winning streak and Jay King and I are enjoying the defense behind this stretch of success. Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley (and Jae Crowder) are making life hell for opposing back courts… so much so that opponents are even amazed by the tenacity. The bench has also come alive led [...]

Any interest in moving Bradley, Crowder and picks for Blake Griffin?

ESPN’s Zach Lowe examines Blake Griffin’s situation in Los Angeles and whether or not he should be traded.
