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 […]

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 […]

The Celtics have had trouble on the offensive end in the last four games with an average of 88 points per game, but is that […]

Celtics Player Focus: Jeff Green’s Roller Coaster Ride

These last two weeks have been like a roller coaster ride for Jeff Green. His stats have just not been consistent. One game he would get 20-plus points, and the next he would just have a bad day. While every player will have his days from time to time, Green needs to be consistent throughout […]

State of the Celtics: Jeff Green, Jordan Crawford Shining Early

The Celtics stand at 4-4 after a week of 4-1 basketball after ending the first week 0-3. After the fourth loss, it did not look great for the green teamers. They were almost last in every offensive category, but the winless Utah Jazz team changed that last Wednesday night. Against NBA odds, the Celtics then […]

Miscellaneous Thoughts on Celtics-Heat

Normally, I would consider the Boston Celtics taking on the Miami Heat a must-see game. But Danny Ainge traded away Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and any semblance of an actual rivalry, and I decided to actually live my life instead of being held hostage by Kelly Olynyk, Kris Humphries, and the rest of the Celtics’ […]

State of the Celtics Roster: Frontcourt

The Celtics roster currently sits full with the NBA limit 15 players under contract. Barring any surprise major moves, the team the Celtics would field on a basketball court today, is likely the one they’ll strut out on opening night.
