Recap: Celtics keep Knicks at bay

Recap: Celtics keep Knicks at bay

Your Morning Dump… where Marcus Smart might play tonight

Your Morning Dump… where Marcus Smart might play tonight

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. Marcus Smart could be back on the court sooner than expected. Last night’s game here against the Pistons was the 18th — and possibly last — [...]

Recap: Celtics hold off Pistons in Detroit

Recap: Celtics hold off Pistons in Detroit

Despite some sketchy (to put it nicely) officiating in the final minute & change, the Celtics got a 99-93 win over the Pistons in Detroit tonight. Three Reggie Jackson foul shots, the result of a bad call with 1:08 left, enabled Detroit to cut what was once a 16 point fourth quarter Boston lead to 92-85 [...]

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. The Celtics did not practice yesterday, and they will not be on the court today either. That is not by league rule; rather it is a [...]

Recap: Ferocious Olynyk leads Celtics over Hornets

Recap: Ferocious Olynyk leads Celtics over Hornets

Ferocious isn’t an adjective often associated with Kelly Olynk. But the quiet Canadian played that way tonight, scoring a team high 20 points (7-10 FG, 9 reb) including two buckets late that sealed the Celtics 102-89 victory over Charlotte. The highlight of the night came in the 3rd quarter when Olynyk channeled his inner Kevin [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Smart is nearly back – and then what?

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. In Smart’s absence, Isaiah Thomas elevated to a starting role and has given Boston’s once inconsistent first-unit offense a jolt. According to the league’s lineup data, [...]
