Enemy Chatter: Kelly’s Olynyk’s ‘Dirk’ move is cold blooded

Enemy Chatter: Kelly’s Olynyk’s ‘Dirk’ move is cold blooded

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Dallas. After the game, Nowitzki was asked about Olynyk stealing his move. “That was cold-blooded,” said Nowitzki, who suggested he heard an assistant coach shout that a one-footed ISO might be [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where it’s the NBA, and a big early lead means nothing

Your Morning Dump… Where it’s the NBA, and a big early lead means nothing

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. We have seen many things out of this Boston Celtics team this season. A fourth quarter implosion was not one of them – until Wednesday night. [...]

Sorry folks, I know these are a little late, but your boy’s been battling the flu this week. Anyway, check out these highlight vids from Boston’s thumping of the Houston Rockets on Monday night.

How to beat… The Dallas Mavericks

How to beat… The Dallas Mavericks

Well congratulations Boston Celtics. You have resoundingly announced your presence to the rest of the NBA. The recent stretch of success has been fun, and you are winning games the right way, Celtics. But we still haven’t had our Thanksgiving binges yet, and no one is going to kick back and expect a win against [...]

Rockets fire Kevin McHale

Rockets fire Kevin McHale

The Houston Rockets fired Kevin McHale this morning.  McHale delivered the Rockets to the Western Conference Finals a year ago, but four straight blowout losses and a roster struggling to respond with effort pushed to the organization to make a move to salvage what had been expected to be a season of championship contention. McHale [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where the (defensive) force is with the first-place Celtics

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. Smart missed 10 of the 11 shots he took during Monday’s game in Houston but still emerged plus-30 in plus/minus because of the way he helped [...]

Evan Turner’s weird, trend-bucking, immensely important early impact

Evan Turner’s weird, trend-bucking, immensely important early impact

I’m not sure many people expected the Celtics to be 6-4 after 10 games, especially after the way the season started. But the Celtics have whipped off some impressive wins in unexpectedly impressive ways. Even if you thought the Celtics could beat Atlanta, OKC, and Houston in consecutive games, there are few who thought they’d [...]

Recap: Celtics steal a blowout in Houston

Recap: Celtics steal a blowout in Houston

In a bit of role reversal, it was the starters who came out hot and the bench that stunk in the first quarter. The Celtics stormed out to an 8-2 lead and both offenses were clicking through the first seven minutes of the game. But the Celtics offense stalled at the 5:21 mark… with the [...]
