The Celtics Are Back! 2015-16 Season Starts against the 76ers at TD Garden

Welcome to the Jungle! That’s the song that will be blasting through the speakers at tip off tonight as the Boston Celtics take on the Philadelphia 76ers in the home opener at TD Garden. The crowd will be rockin’ in anticipation of a young Celtics team that finished last season on a 24-12 run to lock […]

Perry Jones III Flipped to Celtics

The Boston Celtics have acquired athletic wingman Perry Jones III, a 2019 second round pick from the Detroit Pistons and cash considerations from the Oklahoma City Thunder for a future conditional second round pick. Jones averaged 4.3 points and 1.8 points per game for the Thunder last season. As Royce Young of ESPN noted, Jones […]

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. Everyone knows the Celtics have multiple picks, that they have, in a sense, ‘blown it up’ and are rebuilding, but how many […]

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 […]

Jared Sullinger No Longer Out for Season

The Celtics received some very surprising and very good news Friday afternoon. It’s been exactly 50 days since Jared Sullinger last played in a game for Boston, but it looks like that number has a chance to stop there as early as Friday night against the Bucks. Sullinger’s last game came in what might be […]

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 […]

Is Celtics Sullinger Being Late Reason Enough to Join Team Eight Seed?

Since the Big Three era officially ended with the trade of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Brooklyn Nets, I’ve been pretty squarely on Team Tanking when it comes to the Boston Celtics.But lately I’ve started to waver in my tanktastic beliefs. With every minute that Celtics forward Jared Sullinger has twice been late […]

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 […]

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 […]

Celtics Receive No Love from Vegas

The 2014-15 NBA season tipped off less than 24 hours ago, with the reining NBA Champion San Antonio Spurs squeaking out a thriller against their in-state rival Dallas Mavericks. The Boston Celtics’ season kicks off on Wednesday when they take on Kevin Garnett and the Brooklyn Nets. The C’s are coming off an abysmal 25-57 […]

Can Jared Sullinger Become a Legitimate Deep Scoring Threat?

Jared Sullinger has always had a knack for rebounding. This can certainly be attributed to his oversized derriere, which effectively allows him to carve out space and grab loose rebounds which, on the offensive end, can turn into easy points. Former Celtics coach Doc Rivers recognized Sullinger’s talents on the boards early on, and primarily assigned him […]

Celtics 2014 Draft Targets: Julius Randle

The NBA Draft lottery wasn’t kind to the Celtics, who entered it with the fifth-best odds of getting the top pick but wound up with the sixth selection. Boston will also have the 17th overall pick as a result of the blockbuster that sent the remaining members of the Big Three to Brooklyn, and which will […]

Celtics Offseason Roster Outlook

The Celtics’ 2013-14 season unsurprisingly came to an end after 82 regular season games, as Boston missed the playoffs for the first time since the pre-Big Three era in 2006-07, bringing a close to a period that saw the C’s win their record 18th NBA title and an additional Eastern Conference Championship. General manager Danny […]

Olynyk, Sullinger Selected to Rising Stars Challenge

The participants in the NBA All-Star Weekend’s Rising Stars Challenge were announced on Wednesday, and big men Kelly Olynyk and Jared Sullinger will represent the Celtics at the game, which will take place on February 14 at the Pelicans’ New Orleans Arena. The 2014 edition will be the third since the game’s format was changed. […]
