What If? A Look At Celtics’ Recent Draft History

A day after the Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA Draft Lottery and will pick first in the 2011 NBA Draft, it’s time to look back on how the Celtics have done/not done this past decade in the draft. Of course, it’s natural for the Boston Celtics to flop on the draft lottery night. Historically, the […]

Celtics Send Erden, Harangody to Cleveland For Draft Consideration

After trading Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson to Oklahoma, Boston made a deadline deal with the Cavaliers, trading Semih Erden and Luke Harangody for a 2nd Round draft pick. Erden hasn’t played much in a month with his injury problems, so trading him, as much promise as he showed this season, clears up space on […]

Celtics Power Past Warriors Out West

The Celtics had lost six games in a row in Oakland. They were injured quite badly. And at times, it looked like the streak would become seven. But not to be deterred, the Celtics exploded in the second half to defeat the Golden State Warriors 115-93. Delonte West and Semih Erden returned, but Kendrick Perkins […]

Triple Play: Twelve Three Pointers Helps End Celtics’ Losing Streak

For the first half of the game, Paul Pierce was the Celtics’ primary offensive weapon, scoring 21 points to keep Boston ahead of the Sacramento Kings. Pierce didn’t play much in the second half (he finished with 25 points), but he didn’t have to. A 33-18 third quarter built an insurmountable Celtics lead, powering Boston […]

Celtics Come up Short Against Lowly Rockets

You would think the Rockets wouldn’t pose a challenge to the mighty Celtics, but there you go. Boston dropped the game, at home no less, to the Yao-less Rockets 108-102.

Celtics Power Past Raptors at the Garden

After an initial minute and a half, Toronto was no match for Boston, who defeated the Raptors 122-102 to take the season series, 5-1. After Toronto took a 4-2 lead (their only one of the night, which they held for all of 21 seconds), Boston rattled off two buckets to go up 9-4. Toronto closed […]

Garnett Injured as Celtics Turn Game Over to Pistons

Offense, defense, ball control. Play with them, you win. Play without them, you lose. Wednesday night in Detroit, the Celtics played without them, and they lost. The Celtics shot 44.2 percent through the first three quarters, allowed the Pistons to shoot 55.7 percent and turned the ball over 21 times, losing 104-92 in Detroit. Kevin […]

Celtics Skin Bobcats on Road

It wasn’t a pretty game, but mostly for the Bobcats, who lost to the Boston Celtics 93-62. That’s the lowest number of points allowed by the Celtics in a game all season. With Shaquille O’Neal out one more game with a sore calf, Semih Erden filled in, and played 40:42. Charlotte started out good early, […]

Celtics 2010-2011 Preview: Forwards

The Boston Celtics will begin the 2010-2011 NBA season with four forwards on their roster. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, if they can remain healthy, will provide great leadership and experience, while fourth-year pro Glen Davis will add depth and look to continue to be a spark coming off the bench. The Celtics also added […]

Celtics Officially Sign Harangody

The Celtics officially signed second round pick Luke Harangody on Tuesday. They inked him to a two-year deal, with terms of the contract not known.

End of the Road for Brian Scalabrine?

Not every fan favorite player has to be the best player on the team. That’s certainly the case for Brian Scalabrine. Scal has become one of the most popular players on the Celtics amongst fans during his five years with Boston. He’s not the flashiest, the biggest, the strongest, or the best shooter on the […]

Celtics 2010 Draft: Who Are Avery Bradley and Luke Harangody?

One week after the Boston Celtics saw Banner No. 18 slip away, Danny Ainge and co. geared for the 2010 NBA Draft on Thursday. Unlike in years past, the Celtics were in fair position, holding the 19th pick in the first round. It was the highest draft position the Green held since the 2007 draft, […]
