Blown Double-Digit Lead Costs Celtics Double-Meaning Win Over Mavericks

Do you remember those Kevin Garnett commercials after the Boston Celtics won the NBA title in Year One of the Big Three era? “It’s all about eighteen.” The 2015-16 Celtics may not be quite ready to contend for the franchise’s 18th championship, but Wednesday’s loss was all about the number 18: the first quarter lead […]

Celtics Bid Farewell to Phil Pressey

The Celtics have waived reserve point guard Phil Pressey to make room in the already crowded Boston backcourt.

NBA Draft 2015: Who Do the Celtics Have Their Sights Set On?

The 2015 NBA draft is fast approaching, with the lottery the focus of the conversation, the Celtics are looking to scratch up some talent to go with the youthful squad already in place.

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. A first round matchup against the struggling and banged up Atlanta Hawks certainly seemed preferable, right? Well, destiny took the decision out […]

The Magic Number is One for the Celtics

The possibility of the Celtics making the playoffs as a potential seventh-seed was a mere pipe dream at the start of the season.  Celtics fans were looking at draft boards and comparing college prospects as the Celtics were seemingly destined to fall to the lottery for the second year in a row.  As it stands, if the […]

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

Does Brad Stevens Deserve Consideration for Coach of the Year?

For over 50 years, the Red Auerbach Trophy has been awarded each season to the NBA coach whom  sportswriters have deemed the most exceptional. The award is presented prior to the postseason, thus, its recipient’s postseason performance is not a factor. Last year was the first time in 11 seasons that its recipient, Gregg Popovich, was awarded the honor and then […]

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 […]

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. After rumors pegged the Boston Celtics as “contenders” for Goran Dragic and in on the Denver Nuggets’ Ty Lawson, Danny Ainge didn’t land either, as Dragic ended up with the […]

Celtics 2013 Draft Targets: Ricky Ledo

Name: Ricky Ledo College: Providence Position: Shooting guard Age: 20 Stats: 6’6″, 195 lbs.

Rondo Returns, Celtics Fall Two Games Below .500 as Kings’ Cousins Notches Triple-Double

The Boston Celtics finished their four-game road trip on Sunday night with a disappointing outing against the now 11-19 Sacramento Kings.
