8 a.m. ET: Go ahead and try to figure out these Celtics, because all our attempts thus far have failed. They head to Cleveland on a three-game losing streak, and not even the dire situation in which the Cavaliers find themselves is enough to convince us that the Celtics will take care of business.
The Cavs (10-32) are reeling from Monday’s news that center Anderson Varejao, who was having a career year, is done for the season. As though losing four of their last five games was not bad enough, the Cavs must now move forward without their leading rebounder and frontcourt scorer. Kyrie Irving and rookie Dion Waiters will have to carry the Cavs on both ends of the floor, and that presents a challenge for the Celtics (20-20). Boston has struggled to keep up with teams that boast two capable backcourt scorers, having already lost three of their four meetings with the Bucks. The Cavs could present some intriguing problems.

The Boston Celtics tried to keep the band together for one last run or two, but the way the team is playing, you get the feeling the window is closed shut and locked.
The Celtics are 20-20 on the season and not looking anything close to formidable. Celtics head coach Doc Rivers is Frustrated and according to CSNNE, “does not feel like he is doing his job.”
Rivers told Sherrod...
Everyone is waiting for Boston to make that inevitable run that the team always seems to have within it. The Celtics are a veteran team with championship aspirations and knows exactly how to pace themselves.
Something though seems off about the 20-20 Celtics and they seem much more in the thick of the fight near the bottom of the Eastern Conference.
In perhaps a motivational...
This isnt it for the Cavaliers.
Instead, the trade that brought Marreese Speights, Wayne Ellington, Josh Selby and a draft pick to Cleveland is likely just the beginning.
Its true. Cavs general Chris Grant may just be getting started. The man likes and wants to make trades. He has a month to do so in the regular season (the deadline is Feb. 21), and then all summer.
On Tuesday night the Celtics played their second of two road games, this time in Cleveland against the Cavaliers. The Celtics came in off a bad loss to the Detroit Pistons that caused Doc Rivers to make some harsh statements. Following their loss Doc threatened that if this team didn't get it together big changes were ahead. The team looked to bounce back and stop their three...
The injury is a major blow to both the Cavs and Varejao: The Cavs, because he is their best frontcourt player by far and himself, because prior to the injury, he was having a ridiculous career year and was probably headed to an All-Star appearance

Anderson Varejao, who is averaging...
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- So much for jet leg.

"We got into the gym when we got back, just to get the jet lag out of here and get some shots up," said Brandon Knight, who finished with 15 points. "We had some great workouts and...
This is what happens when you let George Stephanopoulos call an inauguration ceremony attended by the greatest member of the Boston Celtics.
This wouldn’t be so bad if Bill wasn’t wearing a Celtics hat. Where are the spotters from ABC?
Maybe a simple, “George, coming up is a shot of Celtics legend Bill Russell,” in his ear before giving him the Bill Russell shot.
Apparently Morgan Freeman is a big Boston Celtics fan. Who knew? Wait, that’s not Morgan Freeman. The legendary actor may be a green teamer for all we know, but that would be Celtics legend Bill Russell.
Russell attended Barack Obama’s presidential inauguration on Monday morning, and George Stephanopoulos accidentally identified him as Freeman during ABC’s telecast of the event...
According to Cleveland.com, Anderson Varejao of the Cleveland Cavaliers will miss the remainder of the season. He developed a blood clot in his lungs and is expected to be on medication to thin his blood for three months. Apparently, the blood clot happened after Varejao underwent hamstring surgery in early [...]
The Boston Celtics matched the New England Patriots and lost by 15 points Sunday night.
The Detroit Pistons defended their home court by lowering a 103-88 beating on the visitors.
While the loss wasn't quite as meaningful as the Patriots' season-ending AFC Championship loss, it was another depressing effort for the Celtics.
After a tough overtime loss against the Chicago...
According to Comcast SportsNet New England, Avery Bradley will try to participate in today's shootaround before the game against the Detroit Pistons, and subsequently see if he will be able to play through the pain of his rib injury that he sustained against the Hornets.
