How to beat… the Minnesota Timberwolves

How to beat… the Minnesota Timberwolves

The Celtics have been scuffling a bit lately, and are a loss away from dropping to the .500 mark. The Timberwolves, meanwhile, are on an upswing, and have made a few adjustments that are capitalizing on the strengths of their exciting young players. The Wolves have a ton of talent. Aside from the obvious “contain [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where KG is comin’ to town

Your Morning Dump… Where KG is comin’ to town

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. Garnett steps back in the Garden tonight for the first time since returning to the Minnesota Timberwolves roster, and judging from the comments this weekend by [...]

Your Afternoon Dump..Where Stevens May Alter the Lineup

Your Afternoon Dump..Where Stevens May Alter the Lineup

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. Brad Stevens is apparently tired of simply riding out the storm. The Celtics have lost three straight games, and the optics within have been quite unpleasant, [...]

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 11: Frustration, help coming, and Lee’s a net negative

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 11: Frustration, help coming, and Lee’s a net negative

Scrap everything we said last week, because this past week saw the Celtics get progressively worse over their three games… all losses. Kelly Olynyk is frustrating… and we wonder what it will take to get him in the right place mentally (so does Brad Stevens, by the way). So is Avery Bradley (which might be [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where the C’s are consistently inconsistent

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 don’t think we’re playing with the same type of swagger,” Crowder said. “[The Hawks] started building that swagger within themselves, you started hearing them yell [...]

Recap: Hawks pick-and-roll Celtics to death

Recap: Hawks pick-and-roll Celtics to death

This was not a great night. The Celtics completely abandoned their usual defensive principles and the Hawks tore them to shreds with pick and roll after pick and roll. Defensively the Hawks forced nearly two dozen Celtics turnovers that left the C’s scrambling for any semblance of an offense. Amazingly the Celtics were not only [...]

How to beat… The Atlanta Hawks

How to beat… The Atlanta Hawks

The Celtics and the Hawks are both having up-and-down seasons. We might have expected that for Boston, but not for the Hawks, who have regressed a bit after last year’s dominant regular season. Few expected that this meeting, a week from Christmas (the REAL start to the NBA season), would involve two teams with nearly [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where we long for a return to the Boogie rumors

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. Lee wouldn’t have much value to the Rockets, who might just buy him out. Besides offering some flexibility with the hard cap Houston is working under [...]

Your weekly Ainge: Where Danny goes golfing with Larry

Every week, Danny Ainge calls into the Toucher & Rich show and serves up a measured dose of Celtics news, and–usually–one or two great stories from the past. On Demarcus Cousins: I can’t comment on players from other teams [c’mon, what else did you expect? –ed.] On players with personality issues in general: I think [...]

If the Rockets move Dwight Howard, should Boston make a deal?

If the Rockets move Dwight Howard, should Boston make a deal?

The Rockets are still playing like crap and there’s speculation Daryl Morey might dump his soft, clownish big man Dwight Howard. The 30-year-old Howard is reportedly unhappy with his role on the team and he can opt-out of his contract after this season. Maybe Houston wants to get something before Howard bolts. ESPN Insider Kevin [...]
