State of the Celtics: Rondo Returns, Big Trade Opens Up Space on Court

After a tough two-week stretch, the Boston Celtics find themselves tied for the fourth worst record in the NBA and have lost 11 of their last 12 contests, including the last three by a combined 12 points to the Los Angeles Lakers, Orlando Magic, and Miami Heat. Rajon Rondo is finally back on the floor, […]

Celtics Acquire Joel Anthony, Picks in Three-Team Trade

On Wednesday, the Celtics completed their second trade in less than ten days, sending shooting guards MarShon Brooks and Jordan Crawford to Golden State. While the Warriors traded point guard Toney Douglas to the Heat, Boston received former Miami center Joel Anthony, a conditional first-round draft pick, a 2016 second-rounder and cash considerations. The move […]

MarShon Brooks Returns to Celtics After Successful D-League Stint

The Celtics called up shooting guard MarShon Brooks on Thursday following a weeklong stint with the Maine Red Claws in the NBA Development League. Brooks was assigned to Maine after appearing in just nine games through December, and now returns to a revamped backcourt rotation after the trade that sent Courtney Lee to Memphis in […]

Confirming earlier reports, the Celtics finalized a three-team trade on Tuesday with the Memphis Grizzlies and Oklahoma City Thunder by which they acquired point guard Jerryd Bayless from the Grizzlies in exchange for shooting guard Courtney Lee and a 2016 second-round draft pick.

State of the Celtics: Rondo Cleared for Full Contact, But Leads Slipping Away

The Boston Celtics had a tough time this week as they held a 19-point advantage after the first quarter against the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night (thanks in part to a great tip-in play), but collapsed over the final three quarters to end up losing 107-106. They may have won their other two contests against […]

Rajon Rondo Returns to Full Practice for Celtics

Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo was cleared by doctors to return to full practice over the weekend, nearly 11 months after a torn ACL knocked him out of the 2012-13 season. While this is clearly terrific news for Boston, team president Danny Ainge was cautious when asked about a timetable for Rondo’s return to game […]

State of the Celtics: Atlantic Division in Sights

The Boston Celtics finished the week with a 2-2 record, with their latest victory coming against the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night by the score 108-100. Jordan Crawford once again led the way with 25 points, including four triples and 8-of-14 shooting from the field to go along with a team-high five assists. As a […]

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: Backcourt

The schedule for the upcoming NBA season has been released, most of the top free agents are off the market, and the Celtics haven’t done much at all since the blockbuster trade that sent Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry to Brooklyn. The lack of activity further suggests that Danny Ainge is looking to […]

JR Smith, Knicks Send Celtics to Fifth Straight Loss

The ‘good’ JR Smith showed up at the TD Banknorth Garden for the Knicks and erupted for 32 points and seven rebounds in a 100-85 win over the Garnett-less Celtics. Not only was Kevin Garnett sidelined for the Celtics, but Courtney Lee also missed his second straight game with an ankle injury. One has to […]

Pierce Rests, Celtics Lose Laugher to Bobcats, 100-74

Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers decided to rest aging star Paul Pierce for tonight’s contest against the Charlotte Bobcats. Turns out he probably didn’t have to. None of Boston’s starters played more than 30 minutes as the Bobcats ran away with this one in the second half, outscoring the Celtics by 23 points en route […]

Celtics Trade Barbosa, Collins to Wizards for Jordan Crawford

It looks like the Celtics are going to stand pat with the roster they have as the NBA season cruises towards the playoffs. In a move that was simply made to acquire another healthy body, multiple media outlets are reporting that the Celtics have sent Leandro Barbosa and Jason Collins to the Washington Wizards in […]

Pierce, Celtics Escape in Narrow Win Over Wizards

Paul Pierce scored 27 points and broke an 84 all tie with a timely three pointer late, as the Celtics escaped Washington with their first win of the season over the Wizards, 91-88. Pierce  and Jeff Green put the Celtics up by 11 with back-to-back three point buckets with around 9 minutes left to play, […]
