Smart Era Gets Off to a Good Start with Win over T’wolves

While it was Evan Turner who got the start in Friday night’s matchup against the Minnesota Timberwolves, it was Marcus Smart who closed out the game at the point guard position in a 114–98 Celtics victory. While the commentary was very much centered on the Rajon Rondo trade and the inaugural game of the Smart era, Kelly Olynyk […]

Celtics Send Rondo to Mavs in Exchange for Pupu Platter

Just this morning I wrote about the Rajon Rondo rumor mill starting up again, and Boston Celtics being able to look forward to spending the next month or so reading rumor after rumor, story after story about whether, where, and when Rondo would be traded. Danny Ainge and the Celtics have preempted the rumor mill […]

Here We Go Again: Rondo Trade Rumors Have Begun

Death, taxes, and Rondo trade rumors. Yes, the rumor mill is underway when it comes to Danny Ainge, the Boston Celtics, and their All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo. December 15th marked the first day free agents that were signed this past offseason are eligible to be traded, ergo: Rondo trade rumors. This time around, it […]

Celtics’ Comeback Bid Falls Short in Double OT Loss at Washington

The Celtics completed a home-and-home matchup last night against the Wizards in a double-overtime thriller that unfortunately resulted in a Boston loss. Splitting the series with a 14-6 Washington team is certainly nothing to be ashamed of, but it was still painful to watch this team lose to the Wizards in perhaps the most exciting game so far this […]

Celtics Defeat Lakers 113-96, All Is Right with the World

  Celtics beat Lakers. My favorite sentence ever. To me, it’s synonymous with good defeats evil. I can never get tired of watching Boston beat L.A., regardless of how meaningless the game is. However, the game itself was not the primary storyline entering last evening. Rajon Rondo and Kobe Bryant sharing breakfast together somehow became breaking news, […]

SoB Satire: Sources Say Rondo Was Recruiting Kobe at Breakfast

The following is the latest in our SoB Satire series. Much of the following isn’t real or confirmed to be true, but we totally wish it was. According to sources, it wasn’t “just two a–holes having breakfast” when Rajon Rondo and Kobe Bryant met for breakfast on Thursday morning, contrary to earlier reports. The two players did engage […]

Breakfast of Champions: Kobe and Rondo Share Side of Bacon Before Lakers-Celtics

Normally a Friday night game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics would be a marquee matchup of longtime rivals and storied franchises that dominates the headlines. But with both franchises stuck in NBA limbo (or purgatory, depending on your point of view), instead the talk of the town is about a Thursday […]

Marcus Smart Expected to Return on Wednesday

One day after blowing a 23-point road lead in Atlanta and extending their current losing streak to five games, the Celtics have finally received some good news. Marcus Smart is expected to come back from his 10-game injury absence on Wednesday at home against the Detroit Pistons. The Celtics have compiled an unimpressive 2-8 record during Smart’s […]

Don’t Blame Brad Stevens for Celtics’ Late-Game Woes

The Celtics could easily be a .500 team right now if a few more late shots had fallen in. Projections from various media sources predicted the C’s to be somewhere in the league’s bottom five at the end of this year. Bearing that in mind, while also considering just how tough their schedule has been so […]

Kelly Olynyk Showing Improvement in Second Year

The Boston Celtics have been a very competitive and entertaining club through their first 10 games of the 2014-15 NBA season. The C’s have beaten a perennial Eastern Conference power in the Chicago Bulls, and nearly beat the championship favorite Cleveland Cavaliers. It is safe to say that this young club has been exciting to watch, […]

Celtics Defeat Winless 76ers, Avoid Embarrassment

Nobody in the NBA wants to be the first team to lose to the 76ers. Thankfully, the Celtics did not become that team on Wednesday night. However, the Celtics can still accomplish this feat when the  two teams face each other again December 15th, and with the way Philly is currently playing, I would not be […]

Free Throw Shooting the Difference as Suns Edge Celtics in Nail-Biter

After Rajon Rondo went 0-for-2 from the free throw line at one point eary in the game, I though to myself, “the games this year have been so close, poor free throw shooting will likely decide this one.” Sure enough, down four with 2.6 seconds on the clock, Rondo was shooting three free throws after Alex Len fouled […]

Rondo Should Stay, Boston’s Great, and What Kendrick Perkins Was Really Trying to Say

It’s been a few days since former Boston Celtic Kendrick Perkins returned to his old stomping grounds, and I can’t get his interview with the local media out of my mind — but not for the reason you might think. He gave hope to Celtics fans far and wide for Rajon Rondo’s impending free agency. “I think […]

Celtics Blow another Lead, Lose to Cavaliers 122-121

  After Friday night’s loss, the Celtics have scored the second most points in the league while allowing opponents to score the second most points as well. Additionally, the Celtics have been outscored by opponents  72-41 in the fourth quarter of the last two games. Keep in mind that the C’s had sizable leads in both of these games. These […]

Rondo Passes Pierce for Fourth on Celtics’ All-Time Assists List

Sure, Rajon Rondo may be a point guard, and Paul Pierce a small forward, but it was still somewhat startling to learn on tonight’s broadcast that Rondo had already surpassed the longtime Celtics captain on the franchise’s all-time assists list. Rondo’s first assist of the game broke a tie with Pierce and moved him into […]
