The Eastern Conference Overreaction Post

The Eastern Conference Overreaction Post

Well, with every team in the East having played at least 2 games, it’s time to make some snap judgments about the teams in what is probably the fourth or fifth best conference in professional basketball. Detroit (3-0): Stan van Gundy is on track to win coach-of-the year. Toronto (3-0): Clearly, this team is going [...]

Weekly AUERBACH ratings: Bigs drop big, bench Evan Turner

Weekly AUERBACH ratings: Bigs drop big, bench Evan Turner

The first three games are in the books, and the results weren’t really very good at all. After the first week of real basketball, our proprietary AUERBACH system of evaluating basketball (Augmented User-Envisioned Reality Basketball Assumption and Categorization Hypotheses) is especially hard on most of the Celtics front court. Overall, the frontcourt’s AUERBACH rating is down [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where the “Tyler Zeller In A Contract Year” Train is slow getting out of the station

Your Morning Dump… Where the “Tyler Zeller In A Contract Year” Train is slow getting out of the station

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. If the Celtics make a change to the starting lineup, Zeller’s the likely odd man out. He played just six minutes, 28 seconds on Sunday and missed both [...]

Recap: Spurs too much for scrappy Celts

Recap: Spurs too much for scrappy Celts

Tonight’s first quarter was absolutely atrocious for Boston. The C’s only managed to score 13 points and looked sloppy. Luckily, the Spurs weren’t a whole heck of a lot better. Thanks to a nice performance off the bench by Jonas Jerebko & some good rebounding, it was only 23-13 after 1Q. It easily could have [...]

Rainin’ J’s Episode 4: Angry about Turner & figuring out bigs

Rainin’ J’s Episode 4: Angry about Turner & figuring out bigs

This week, Jay King and I opened the show with a look back at the mess against the Toronto Raptors, specifically why Brad Stevens decided to play Evan Turner for the last 18 minutes of the game when he was NOT playing well. From there we transition into the bigs, and how Brad Stevens is [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where the defensive guys didn’t play D

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. Celtics head coach Brad Stevens has gone with the same starting five in both games in part because of what they bring to the game as collective unit [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where let’s just forget about last night

Your Morning Dump… Where let’s just forget about last night

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. Friday’s game was an eyesore, regardless of which team you support. The Celtics and Raptors combined for 61 fouls and 76 free throws in a whistle-heavy game that [...]

Recap: Toronto reminds the Cs who rules the Atlantic

Recap: Toronto reminds the Cs who rules the Atlantic

After dispatching the Philadelphia 76ers of the NBA’s developmental league to open the season, tonight’s tilt with the Raptors felt like an early season measuring stick game for the Celtics. They came up well short. Locked up at 58 after the first half, the Raptors rode hot shooting, while the Cs fell victim to sloppy [...]

Gang Green TV Season 9 begins… with predictions!

With the season starting up this week, the Gang looks into its crystal ball to issue its annual predictions league-wide.  Who’s taking their division?  Who’s going to the conference finals, and most importantly– who’s the first coach to get fired??  They also forecast potential cuts to the Celtics, team-win totals, trades, and… pizza. There’s no [...]

In the Celtics Crowded Frontcourt, Amir Johnson Has Quickly Solidified a Role

In the Celtics Crowded Frontcourt, Amir Johnson Has Quickly Solidified a Role

The biggest takeaway from the Celtics season opening win against Philadelphia on Wednesday night was the play of Jared Sullinger. After showing up out of shape and being pushed out of the rotation, Sully capitalized on Kelly Olynyk’s absence and Tyler Zeller’s ineffectiveness and put forth a solid effort. But as John said after the [...]
