Your Morning Dump… Where no reasonable offer will be turned down!

Your Morning Dump… Where no reasonable offer will be turned down!

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. Whatever move or moves Boston makes leading up to the Feb. 18 trade deadline, the Celtics have to address the logjam in the frontcourt which consists [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Danny wants to consolidate the roster

During a weekly appearance with 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher & Rich show, Ainge suggested he will look for trades in which the Celtics send out more players than they receive. “Consolidating quantity for quality right now is sort of something that we’re looking to do,” he said. “But we like all of our players.

Recap: It’s time to panic about the Celtics offense

Recap: It’s time to panic about the Celtics offense

The Celtics cannot score. I repeat, the Celtics cannot score. Just another hideous offensive performance tonight by the boys in green as they lost 101-92 to Chicago. Here are the numbers: 35% from the floor, 20% from 3. How many ways can we dissect it? And at what point do we criticize shot selection? Evan [...]

Rondo vindicated in alleged kicking incident

Rondo vindicated in alleged kicking incident

Yesterday I (and a lot of people on the Internet) skewered Rajon Rondo for allegedly taking a swipe at Deron Williams during his game winning shot Tuesday night in the Mavs/Kings game. Turns out, what we thought happened wasn’t reality: The NBA has decided that there will be no punishment for Sacramento Kings point guard [...]

How to beat… The Chicago Bulls

How to beat… The Chicago Bulls

If the Celtics really want to embrace their identity, their sales department will get Six Flags on as a sponsor immediately. This is a roller coaster of a season that is currently on a big down swing. But those roller coasters have to go back up again… and a nationally televised game against a streaking [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where it’s not a happy locker room

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. Another Boston Celtics starter has called out the team’s lack of a set rotation. After falling Monday night to the Detroit Pistons, Isaiah Thomas said a [...]

Recap: 4th quarter collapse leads to another awful loss

Recap: 4th quarter collapse leads to another awful loss

In a game they pretty much controlled for about 3 quarters, the Celtics wilted badly in the final 12 minutes and lost to the Pistons, 99-94. The Celtics started fast by attacking the paint and beating Andre Drummond with slick interior passing. Their shooting slowly deteriorated from there but, even after shooting 8-28 FG in [...]

How to beat… The Detroit Pistons

How to beat… The Detroit Pistons

The Celtics start a really tough back-to-back tonight against the Detroit Pistons, who happen to be gaining strength. They just roasted Orlando and Minnesota (sandwiched around a loss to Indiana). The Celtics, meanwhile, are without Avery Bradley, which really limits their ability to do some of the things needed to beat the Pistons tonight. 1: [...]
