Celtics Season In Review: Big Changes On The Horizon?

The Boston Celtics had a good, but not great season.  They were that scrappy team that fought hard every night, never gave up, and were very entertaining.  However, these teams do not win in the NBA nowadays.  This playoff experience should make the players and Stevens better in the long run. Danny Ainge, after the […]

Celtics Handle Cavs, Kings, Go for Fifth Straight

After Avery Bradley edged the Celtics over the Cavaliers Friday night with a buzzer beater 3-pointer he continued his sharp shooting against the Kings going 6-7 from 3-point range and scoring 25 points in a 128-119 victory Sunday in Boston. The win in Cleveland was likely the Celtics biggest win of the season, especially being […]

Welcome to the Jungle! That’s the song that will be blasting through the speakers at tip off tonight as the Boston Celtics take on the Philadelphia 76ers in the home opener at TD Garden.

Celtics’ Brad Stevens and Evan Turner Join NBA Cast in Africa

With NBA summer league in the books and time before official team activities begin Coach Brad Stevens and Evan Turner crossed the ocean to promote the NBA in Africa last week. The pair spent time in Johannesburg, South Africa where they participated in the first NBA game on the continent of Africa. Stevens role was […]

Celtics Bid Farewell to Phil Pressey

The Celtics have waived reserve point guard Phil Pressey to make room in the already crowded Boston backcourt. Pressey played two seasons in Boston, providing high energy, defensive intensity, and ball handling. The 24 year old Pressey was a coaches dream in Boston. He was happy to have the chance to play on the parkay […]

NBA Draft 2015: Who Do the Celtics Have Their Sights Set On?

The 2015 NBA draft is fast approaching, with the lottery the focus of the conversation, the Celtics are looking to scratch up some talent to go with the youthful squad already in place. Everyone knows the Celtics have multiple picks, that they have, in a sense, ‘blown it up’ and are rebuilding, but how many […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Celtics’ Comeback Bid Falls Short in Double OT Loss at Washington

The Celtics completed a home-and-home matchup last night against the Wizards in a double-overtime thriller that unfortunately resulted in a Boston loss. Splitting the series with a 14-6 Washington team is certainly nothing to be ashamed of, but it was still painful to watch this team lose to the Wizards in perhaps the most exciting game so far this […]

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 Show Up in Second Half in First Preseason Game: Player Report Cards

A Celtics team without Jeff Green and Rajon Rondo would typically get blown out by 20, and not blow out another team by 20. On Monday night the Celtics did in fact win by 20 points, in a game where their starting five had a combined 10 years of NBA experience.  The Celtics were trailing at the half, […]
