Entering Friday night’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves… the Celtics were riding high upon a three-game winning streak! The result: a resounding 100-79 victory and occupancy of First Place in the Atlantic Division. Even though Ray Allen was out and has missed the last five games, the Celtics ended the month with a steadfast march toward and into First Place!
With the all important end of the season and the necessary jockeying for playoff position that takes place…. the Celtics are finally playing some of their best ball this season! In fact they have strung together a five game winning stretch… placing them as the Atlantic Division leaders with an overall record of 29-22!
As the Celtics begin the important month of April in the Basketball world, they immediately face a tough test! They play the top of the Eastern Conference Miami Heat! Certain to be a tough opponent and important obstacle to overcome in a playoff run for this years’ NBA Title. Perhaps this current squad can ...

Um, we need 5 out there, so am I starting or not?
Ray Allen could return to the starting lineup against San Antonio Wednesday night. However, the Celtics have compiled a five-game winning streak while Allen recovers from an ankle injury, and coach Doc Rivers said the coaching staff has considered bringing Allen off the bench.
“We think about stuff like that all...
The Boston Celtics have been without one of their Big Three for 10 games this season. Interestingly enough, they have won 9 out of those 10 games. This subject has been a topic of many articles recently and a big discussion on several CLNS Radio Postgame Shows. Will the Celtics be better off with Ray [...]

The Celtics have been getting off to great starts of late. Avery Bradley's defense at the 2 guard position has been a boost to the starting 5, but now Ray Allen is about to return. The question C's fans are wondering is whether the C's would be better off bringing Ray off the bench...
WALTHAM, Mass. -- The Celtics' first practice in a month came at an opportune time for Ray Allen, who was able to test his sore right ankle before his imminent return to game action. Allen fully participated in Tuesday's practice at the Celtics training facility, and the team declared him ready to play for Wednesday's game against the San Antonio Spurs barring any flare...
Starting Avery Bradley ahead of Ray Allen once seemed outrageous, then it began to look like an intelligent decision, then Doc Rivers said it might happen, then Rivers squashed all chances of it happening, and now Rivers has said it might actually happen, with Ray Allen saying he’d be alright with the change. If you feel like you’ve just gone 12 rounds with a dizzy bat, find...

After building an increasingly impressive winning streak entirely without Ray Allen, the Boston Celtics could gain even more momentum with the veteran sharpshooter back in the lineup.
Then again, the San Antonio Spurs are riding an even bigger surge.
The visiting Spurs will be looking for a ninth straight win Wednesday night in their only meeting of the season with the Celtics...
The education of Avery Bradley has moved beyond general studies portion and into the advanced theories section. It began with suffocating defense, the same way a scrawny 14-year-old at the end of the junior varsity bench would try to earn more playing time. It became something more than a novelty act when Bradley started cutting to the rim and scoring in bunches. In the past two...
It wasn’t too long ago that it looked like the Boston Celtics were going to be blown up. Rajon Rondo was shopped for the better part of the season. Ray Allen was available for the right combination of picks and young players. There were even rumors that Paul Pierce was available, again, for the right price. I don’t think anyone would have been really surprised if Danny Ainge...
The Big Three continue to lead the way for the Miami Heat, who seem unlikely to relinquish control of the Southeast Division lead down the stretch.
While Ray Allen has missed the last five games, the Boston Celtics have climbed to the top of the Atlantic behind tremendous efforts from Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.
Looking to continue their recent success in this series, the Heat...
