Marcus Smart’s Progression Through his Rookie Season Impressive

The Boston Celtics kicked off their first round matchup in the NBA Playoffs with a 113-100 road loss against the Cleveland Cavaliers Sunday afternoon. Despite the C’s being a part of the playoffs, this is a good time to take a look at how Celtics rookie Marcus Smart progressed this season. If you take a […]

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 […]

Celtics a Playoff Threat?

With seven games left on the Boston Celtics schedule, they sit with a 34-41 record, and are tied with the Miami Heat for the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference, (the C’s are placed ninth due to tiebreakers). The Celts are also only a 0.5 game behind the seventh seeded Brooklyn Nets, and are three […]

Video: Marcus Smart Uppercuts Matt Bonner in Low Blow

Celtics point guard Marcus Smart was ejected from Friday night’s game against the Spurs after he gave Matt Bonner a low-blow uppercut: Marcus Smart gets a flagrant 2 https://t.co/iQR72VnnpM — Brian Robb (@CelticsHub) March 21, 2015 Interesting.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Grass is Greener in Memphis, But What About for the Celtics?

If you’re a Celtics fan watching tonight’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans, you really do have to hope the grass is greener on the other side (and I’m not just talking about Memphis). Danny Ainge continued his collector’s obsession with future assets, shipping Jeff Green to the Memphis Grizzlies for a future first rounder, […]

Smart Era Gets Off to a Good Start with Win over T’wolves

While it was Evan Turner who got the start in Friday night’s matchup against the Minnesota Timberwolves, it was Marcus Smart who closed out the game at the point guard position in a 114–98 Celtics victory. While the commentary was very much centered on the Rajon Rondo trade and the inaugural game of the Smart era, Kelly Olynyk […]

Celtics Send Rondo to Mavs in Exchange for Pupu Platter

Just this morning I wrote about the Rajon Rondo rumor mill starting up again, and Boston Celtics being able to look forward to spending the next month or so reading rumor after rumor, story after story about whether, where, and when Rondo would be traded. Danny Ainge and the Celtics have preempted the rumor mill […]

Here We Go Again: Rondo Trade Rumors Have Begun

Death, taxes, and Rondo trade rumors. Yes, the rumor mill is underway when it comes to Danny Ainge, the Boston Celtics, and their All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo. December 15th marked the first day free agents that were signed this past offseason are eligible to be traded, ergo: Rondo trade rumors. This time around, it […]

Marcus Smart Expected to Return on Wednesday

One day after blowing a 23-point road lead in Atlanta and extending their current losing streak to five games, the Celtics have finally received some good news. Marcus Smart is expected to come back from his 10-game injury absence on Wednesday at home against the Detroit Pistons. The Celtics have compiled an unimpressive 2-8 record during Smart’s […]

Smart Out 2-3 Weeks: Exploring the Celtics’ Options

The air was sucked out of TD Garden early in the fourth quarter of Friday night’s win over the Pacers, when rookie sensation Marcus Smart went to the floor in obvious pain after stepping on Lavoy Allen‘s foot. On Saturday morning, tests confirmed a sprained left ankle and bone bruise for Smart, who is expected […]

Celtics Lose to Evan Turner, Raptors

The Celtics lost Wednesday night to a Raptors team that was led by the double agent known as Evan Turner. Turner, who played only 12 minutes, had five turnovers and posted an unforgivable minus-10. Brad Stevens’s optimism surrounding the transformation of the swingman into a point guard certainly must be squashed after his abysmal performance last night. His […]

Celtics Comeback Bid Falls Short, Marcus Smart Dazzles in Homecoming

The Celtics surprised many with their season debut against Brooklyn, where they embarrassed a team many predict to make the playoffs, defeating them by 16 points. Our collective optimism was squashed shortly thereafter when our old friend Kevin McHale and his Rockets exposed the Celtics for who they really are (a rebuilding team) with a 104-90 victory in […]
