Who Would You Rather See the Celtics Play in the Playoffs?

After their win against the Pistons, the Celtics keep inching towards a playoff spot. The Green currently sit in seventh place in the East with four games to go, by virtue of holding the tiebreaker over Brooklyn. Their magic number to clinch a playoff spot is four (any combination of Boston wins and Indiana/Miami losses). […]

Celtics Release Shavlik Randolph, Sign Chris Babb, Ignite Trade Rumors

Danny Ainge just couldn’t forgive Shavlik Randolph for elbowing Kelly Olynyk in the face.  In reality, with Jared Sullinger back, there was simply no need for the bench-warming Randolph to take up a roster spot better served for developing players. Chris Babb, who played briefly with the Celtics last season (including two summer league stints with […]

Revis Who? Smart, Celtics Tame Grizzlies to Edge Closer to Playoffs

Wednesday night’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies seemed to be following the classic Boston Celtics script this season: an early lead and solid play that evaporated and left the Celtics in a tight back and forth contest late in the fourth quarter. And with Isaiah Thomas out after falling hard on his back and right […]

Celtics Rule Sullinger Out for Rest of Season

It seemed the Boston Celtics of the future were finally taking shape. Isaiah Thomas arrived at the trade deadline to take over as the starting point guard of the next few years, Kelly Olynyk was getting ready to return from his ankle injury, and the Celtics were just a game and a half out of […]

Hey Celtics: Forget Tanking, Go for the 8-Seed

Sean Grande, the Celtics radio play-by-play voice, said it best: “Strange things happen the last game before the All Star break.” And strange things did happen as the Celtics defeated the Eastern Conference leading Atlanta Hawks 89-88. Evan Turner was the hero for the Green with his near buzzer-beating right-handed floater. These Celtics are proving more […]

Grass is Greener in Memphis, But What About for the Celtics?

If you’re a Celtics fan watching tonight’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans, you really do have to hope the grass is greener on the other side (and I’m not just talking about Memphis). Danny Ainge continued his collector’s obsession with future assets, shipping Jeff Green to the Memphis Grizzlies for a future first rounder, […]

Celtics Comeback Bid Falls Short, Marcus Smart Dazzles in Homecoming

The Celtics surprised many with their season debut against Brooklyn, where they embarrassed a team many predict to make the playoffs, defeating them by 16 points. Our collective optimism was squashed shortly thereafter when our old friend Kevin McHale and his Rockets exposed the Celtics for who they really are (a rebuilding team) with a 104-90 victory in […]

What Can We Expect from Marcus Smart This Season?

While the majority of us New Englanders have primarily devoted our attention to the roller coaster ride that are the Patriots’ and Bruins’ seasons, some of us, including myself, have been watching Brad Stevens’s young Celtics team enjoy a somewhat enjoyable preseason. While these games essentially have no consequence, they do offer us a peek into the Celtics’ future and their young players. Perhaps […]

Who Will Start Opening Day at Point Guard?

As we learned last week, Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo injured his hand allegedly falling in his shower, leaving him injured for up to 10 weeks, meaning he’ll miss the first few games of the 2014—15 season and the Celtics will now have to find another starter to begin the season. Boston has grown accustomed to finding […]

Rondo Breaks Hand, Will Miss First 2-4 Weeks of Season

Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo fractured a metacarpal bone in his left hand after falling at his home on Thursday night. He underwent surgery at New England Baptist Hospital on Friday and is expected to be out six to eight weeks. Boston opens its regular season on October 29 against Brooklyn, so Rondo could miss anywhere between […]

Celtics Re-Sign Avery Bradley

The 2014 NBA free agency period should be a very busy time for the Boston Celtics, with many questions looming. Questions such as: who are the C’s going to re-sign? Who are the C’s going to let go? Who are the C’s going to trade or acquire? The first one of these questions they answered was the one about Avery Bradley’s future. […]

Celtics Acquire Thornton, Zeller, Now Expected to Pursue Love

On Thursday the Celtics completed a three-team trade with Brooklyn and Cleveland that is expected to have much larger implications in free agency and the rest of the offseason. In the deal, Boston received shooting guard Marcus Thornton from the Nets and center Tyler Zeller, along with a future first-round draft pick, from the Cavaliers, while […]

Celtics Kick Off Free Agency with Bradley Qualifying Offer, Hayward Interest

On Monday, the Celtics officially announced that they had extended a qualifying offer to restricted free agent shooting guard Avery Bradley, the terms of which were not disclosed. The offer is the necessary first step to retain negotiating rights with an RFA, meaning that now Boston can re-sign Bradley by matching the highest bid by […]

Celtics Address Backcourt in Draft: Analysis and Roster Implications

Prior to Thursday night’s NBA Draft, there was a lot of talk about whether the Celtics should take highly-touted, but injured, Kansas center Joel Embiid, once a candidate for the top pick, if he were available at number six. Soon, the 76ers threw all that discussion right out the window by selecting Embiid with the third […]
