Rainin’ J’s Ep. 17: Hero Bradley & yes, lots of trade talk

Fresh off a buzzer-beating win in Cleveland, Jay King and I break down the amazing comeback and how the Celtics were able to score five points in less than five seconds. Tyler Zeller has been rescued from the end of the bench, Evan Turner continues to play really well off the bench, and Marcus Smart is [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where winning feels *really* good, doesn’t it?

Your Morning Dump… Where winning feels *really* good, doesn’t it?

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. “It was the perfect storm. Things just went well for them down the stretch,” said Cavs coach Tyronn Lue, making an early submission for understatement of [...]

Recap: Bradley’s miracle buzzer-beater beats Cavs, 104-103

Recap: Bradley’s miracle buzzer-beater beats Cavs, 104-103

You want a dramatic win over the Cavs in Cleveland and at the buzzer? Avery Bradley’s got you. AB’s buzzer-beating three capped a miracle finish in which the Celtics trailed by five with 18 seconds left, and four with seven seconds left. After a timeout, Evan Turner scored a driving layup and drew a foul. [...]

Blatant speculation: The 2016 Nets pick for Brook Lopez?

Blatant speculation: The 2016 Nets pick for Brook Lopez?

Tis the season for rumors and unfounded speculation and I (unlike grumpy John) love to indulge. The guys at Sheridan Hoops wonder if Brooklyn would look to move Brook Lopez for a draft pick, their/our draft pick: Lopez is averaging more than 20 points and is on the first year of a three-year, $63 million [...]

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. “I tell my wife all the time, ‘You don’t see many 7-footers walking around at the age of 75,'” says Bird, who’s 6-foot-9. “She hates it [...]

Videos of the Day: IT leads Celts over Detroit, Curry & Wall go off

Check out highlights from Isaiah Thomas’ 17 point, 7 assist night during Boston’s (mostly) easy 102-95 win over the Pistons. Now I realize this is a Celtics website, but I’d be amiss if I didn’t include Steph Curry’s ridiculous 51 point, 11 trey performance against the Wiz and John Wall in today’s clips. Speaking of [...]

Report: Denver keeps rejecting Boston’s offers for Gallinari

Report: Denver keeps rejecting Boston’s offers for Gallinari

It appears Danny Ainge’s tactics with the Denver Nuggets for Danilo Gallinari resemble my dating approach in my early 20s: keep asking until they a) punch you  b) don’t take your calls or c) break down and say yes. The folks at Hoops Rumors piece together multiple reports: The Celtics have aggressively pursued a trade for [...]

Boston’s greatest strength is its greatest weakness at the trade deadline

Boston’s greatest strength is its greatest weakness at the trade deadline

The NBA trade deadline is in two weeks. By the time we go to bed 14 days from now, we’ll know whether Danny Ainge was able to pull off a move for any of the assets he’s been stockpiling. But like the conspiracy theorist loading up his bunker for the zombie apocalypse, there’s still an [...]

Recap: Stan Van Gundy Loses Neck, Game

Recap: Stan Van Gundy Loses Neck, Game

This was not a close game. At least for about the middle 40 minutes or so. Some serious defensive lapses in the middle stretch of the fourth allowed Detroit back into it, but when the dust settled and the referees stopped blowing whistles, the Celtics won 102-95, running their record in the second game of [...]
