Date with Destiny: Celtics Set to Face Lebron, Cavs in Return to Playoffs

Some Celtics fans were probably hoping for the team to lose its last two games and avoid the Cleveland Cavaliers and their league best record 34-9 over the last three months in Round One.

NBA Trade Deadline Madness: Celtics Somehow Land Isaiah Thomas in Suns’ PG Firesale

What in the hell just happened? The NBA trade deadline has come and gone, and it seems like half of the league’s point guards have suddenly changed teams.

The Bill Simmons Face, the Luck of the Irish, Mallory Edens, and Other Thoughts on the NBA Draft Lottery

The NBA Draft Lottery was Tuesday night, and it sure didn’t disappoint. Well, unless you’re a Celtics fan, after Boston ended up with the #6 pick in spite of a 33% chance of landing in the top three.

For Boston, coming out of the All-Star Break […]

Nowitzki, Mavericks Crush Shorthanded Celtics

Hmm… let’s see. The Celtics struggled badly with rebounds Monday night against the Dallas Mavericks. They also couldn’t move the ball offensively, find open shots or accomplish anything in the paint.
