The Celtics Need More Out of Jeff Green

The Celtics Need More Out of Jeff Green

If there was a list of the top 5 most confounding players in the NBA, Jeff Green would surely be on it. He often shows flashes of greatness that leave fans wanting more, like his 43 point performance against LeBron and the Heat a couple of years back. In that game, Green showed the skill [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where someone needs to get Brad Stevens a hoodie

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

The myth of the “max guy”

The myth of the “max guy”

One of the things I heard in the aftermath of Friday night’s failure by Rajon Rondo to get a potential game-winning shot off was that it was proof he’s not a “max guy.”  In fact, the question of whether he’s a “max guy” has become the center of most discussions about his future. The “max [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics are still green at closing games

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. It seems the Celtics have been trying to solve the mystery of their fourth-quarter disappearances for years, even before the Brad Stevens era began. It was no [...]

C’s highlights vs Cavs, condensed game video

With the exception of the last 7 or so seconds, last night’s contest between the Celtics & Cavaliers was easily the most enjoyable game of this young season for Boston fans.

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 [...]
