Buyout Season: 5 Newly Free Agents That Could Join Celtics

The Celtics’ acquisitions during buyout season have been a mixed bag in recent years. On one hand, P.J. Brown, Sam Cassel and Stephon Marbury all contributed during long playoff runs. On the other hand, Miki Moore, Troy Murphy and Carlos Arroyo struggled to get on the court in their brief stints with the club. With […]

Garnett Leads Celtics Over Warriors in Defenseless Third Game of Road Trip

Sometimes in basketball you can win shooting worse than your opponent. You can get beat in the paint, you can turn the ball over too much. You can even do all three and still win. Because sometimes, all you need is Kevin Garnett. Garnett scored 24 points on 11-for-15 shooting, including a jumper with the […]

Like in 2007-08, Championship Celtics can be Built Around Rondo

Michael Felger said on Felger and Mazz Tuesday that “teams can not be built around a point guard. It does not work” I disagree: with the proper players around Rajon Rondo, he can lead a team and win championships. He might not average 20 points per game, but he can absolutely be the foundation of something […]

Celtics Midterm Report Card: A Much-Needed Break

In its final two games before All-Star Weekend in Orlando, the Celtics got trounced by a pair of top-four playoff teams from the Western Conference. These two losses stretched their losing streak to five games, the second time this season they have lost five in a row. Boston’s 16- and 15-point losses to the Dallas […]

Nowitzki, Mavericks Crush Shorthanded Celtics

Hmm… let’s see. The Celtics struggled badly with rebounds Monday night against the Dallas Mavericks. They also couldn’t move the ball offensively, find open shots or accomplish anything in the paint. The Celtics played the Mavericks without Kevin Garnett (family matter), Brandon Bass (knee) and Rajon Rondo (two-game suspension). They lost to the Mavericks, 89-73. […]

Bryant and Lakers Stop Celtics in OT Classic

In the closing seconds of Thursday night’s overtime game against the Lakers, the Celtics found themselves a point down. Paul Pierce fired a potential game-winner, but the shot rimmed out. Ray Allen grabbed the rebound and sent up one final prayer, but Pau Gasol blocked it as as time expired. The Lakers beat the Celtics in […]

Celtics Complete Biggest Comeback in 16 Seasons Against Magic

The Boston Celtics got double-doubles from Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, plus double-digit scoring from three more, coming all the way from 27 down to beat the Orlando Magic 91-83 Thursday night at the Amway Center. It was Celtics’ biggest comeback in 16 seasons.

Celtics Report Card: One Month in, C’s Need Work

Welcome to our weekly Celtics report card! In this space, I’ll evaluate the team’s performance over the past week, assigning grades from “F” to “A+” (though be forewarned, there will be no liberal arts college grade inflation). To come up with a letter grade, I will use a combination of statistics (looking at the box […]

Celtics Can’t Overcome Westbrook’s Hot Shooting, Lose to Thunder in Perkins Return

Russell Westbrook hit a pair of key three-pointers in the game’s final two minutes, part of a 26-point night that lifted the Oklahoma City Thunder over the Boston Celtics, 97-88. Kevin Durant added clutch moments of his own, and leading everyone with 28. Paul Pierce led the Celtics with 24 points. Kevin Garnett and Jermaine […]

Celtics Sign Mickael Pietrus to One-Year Deal

When Jeff Green went down for the season with an aortic aneurysm, he left a gaping hole on the wing for the Celtics. Then, Paul Pierce injured his heel. Uh oh… Have no fear though, as Danny Ainge brought in veteran swingman Mickael Pietrus on Saturday, signing him to a one-year deal for the veteran minimum […]

Celtics Give up Game 6 to Orlando

Game 6 was a terrible game, as both teams played poorly the whole way through. There were dumb fouls, turnovers, and missed shots all over the place. This hardly looked like two of the three best teams in the Eastern Conference fighting to play in the next round. However, Orlando came out the victorious, beating Boston 83-75 […]

Perkins Not Suspended for Game 4

First, Happy Mother’s Day! Without mothers’ efforts, these athletes we love to watch would not be where they are. So thank you! Mothers around New England will be treated to a full slate of action Sunday, with the Celtics, Bruins, and Red Sox all scheduled to play. Speaking of the Celtics, center Kendrick Perkins will […]
