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). […]

One Eyed Kelly Olynyk KO’s Pacers

Shavlik Randolph hasn’t had much of an impact on the Celtics at all this year. He only gets in during blow outs or extreme foul trouble. He is essentially a paid practice player, not a bad gig. However, tonight maybe Randolph was a little mad at Kelly Olynyk and took it out on the young […]

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 […]

Video: Bradley’s Best Larry Bird Impression, Wallace’s Dunk Power Celtics Over Bucks

The Boston Celtics faced the Milwaukee Bucks for the third time this season on Tuesday night, faced with the ignominious task of avoiding three losses to the team with the worst record (3-14) and point differential (-9.5) in the NBA. Which is really saying something, with the haggard state of the Eastern Conference and the […]

First Look at the Celtics 2013-2014 Schedule

The 2013-2014 NBA schedule was released Tuesday evening and, for Celtics fans, there are a few important games to highlight. The Celtics and first year head coach Brad Stevens kick-off the season on October 30th in Toronto against the Raptors who will be looking to capitalize on a weakened Eastern Conference and make a run […]

Celtics, Knicks Clinch First Round Matchup in NBA Playoffs

You can rest easy, Celtics fans. The Miami Heat won’t be waiting in the first round. One night after sitting Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce in a 109-101 loss to the Heat, the Boston Celtics stars returned to trounce the Orlando Magic, 120-88, Saturday at the Amway Center. Courtney Lee led the Celtics with 20 points on 7-of-10 […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 22

The playoffs are really starting to come into the picture with a week left in the season. Five of six divisions and the Eastern Conference are locked up. 15 of 16 teams have punched their tickets, leaving the Lakers and Jazz in a dogfight for the final spot, though Dallas is still holding out hope. […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 21

Just two weeks remain in the season. The Jazz and Lakers are still in a dead heat for the final spot, while the others are pretty safe, if not mathematically clinched. Still, that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to play for. Avoiding Miami in the first round will certainly be a good race. The top spot […]

Pekovic, Wolves Blow By Pierce-less Celtics

Nikola Pekovic erupted for 29 points and five rebounds, as the Timberwolves beat the Celtics, 110-100. Avery Bradley led the Celtics with 19 points, a night after scoring just two points and fouling out in a losing effort to the Knicks. Paul Pierce sat out Monday with what the team deemed, “Personal reasons.” The key […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 20

20 weeks into the season, and things are starting to come down to the wire. There isn’t much time left at all to make a move, yet only five teams have been mathematically eliminated so far. The Heat have opened a sizable lead in the East, while even San Antonio isn’t out of the woods […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 19

The season is nearing an end, but there’s still plenty of movement afoot. The teams are just about set (though there is still some room to make it into the brackets in the West), though many teams are within a win or two (or as many losses) from changing multiple seeds at once. A pair […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 18

There’s not much time left in the season. All teams have passed 60 games, but only Miami has clinched a playoff spot so far. And nobody has clinched ping pong balls yet, but will next game, in all likelihood. The biggest race by far is for the lowest seeds in the West; #7-#9 are separated […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 17

Now a week into March, the brackets are pretty set. The East is definitely set, with 7.5 games separating #8 from #9. The Lakers are still making a case in the West, but 2.5 games back may be too much when you have a poor road record in a powerful conference. Right now, Miami is […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 16

We’re coming up on 60 games played in the season, and there’s still a lot to play for. Miami and San Antonio are still the teams to beat, but it’s a lot closer amid the rest. In particular, the race to avoid the worst West seeds is getting very heated, especially with San Antonio and […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 15

The All Star Game is this weekend, and the playoff teams are starting to come into the picture. Miami is rebuilding a lead in the East, as San Antonio is starting to do out West. The teams in the middle are still fighting for position, which is extra important in order to avoid the hardest […]
