Recap: Mistake-filled second half costs C’s in crucial game vs. Bucks

Recap: Mistake-filled second half costs C’s in crucial game vs. Bucks

With seven games left and 6 teams fighting for 3 playoff spots, every win and loss is magnified. A loss like tonight’s is especially painful considering the Celtics came out hot, held a double-digit lead, and led at the half. But a disastrous start to the 3rd quarter, some generally sloppy play by the Celtics [...]

Red’s Army presents Fan Friday #66: “Season Finale”

Playoffs or not, this season is a success

Playoffs or not, this season is a success

The Boston Celtics will play the Milwaukee Bucks tonight for a chance to claim, at least for one night, the 7th seed (if Brooklyn loses) and move within two games of 6th. They hold tie breakers on some teams. They don’t with others. In seven remaining games, they face only one team that’s not concerned [...]

GGTV #23: Make the playoff run, or shut it down?

GGTV #23: Make the playoff run, or shut it down?

I joined The Gang to answer the big question posed this week: Should the Celtics REALLY make a run for the playoffs, or are they better off just missing the playoffs and entering the lottery. And if they DO make it… who would we prefer to play, Atlanta or Cleveland? I also gave my take, [...]
