Recap: Celtics happy to help the Knicks end their 10-game losing streak

The Celtics defense was noticeably missing Avery Bradley (sickness) and Marcus Smart (Achilles strain early in the 1st quarter) and the offense was just noticeably… missing. The result? A pathetic New York Knicks team nearly led wire-to-wire and won 101-95. The Knicks came out scorching from the field and save for a short stretch in the second quarter, never really cooled off...

Should The Celtics Consider Bringing Avery Bradley Off The Bench?

While the focus of Boston’s struggles has centered on Rajon Rondo, the lack of a rim protector, or the absence of a go-to-guy, other issues have been able to fly under the radar. Even with the many issues the Celtics have, they head into Friday night’s game against the Knicks just one game out of the 8th spot in the East. Celtics fans would certainly love to see their team sneak...

Avery Bradley Taking ‘Aggressive’ Mindset To Earn More Foul Shots

WALTHAM, Mass. — The free-throw line has been an unfamiliar place for the Boston Celtics this season. Only the New York Knicks visit the charity stripe with less frequency (17.9 times per game) than the Celtics (19.3), and although Boston’s offense ranks fifth in the NBA, poor foul shooting (or complete lack of it) has played a role in its inability to close out games. One...

Why Kevin Love makes Boston Celtics a contender

My least favorite part of having a job is performance reviews. Not that I mind being evaluated or told what I could be better at, that part I’m fine with, it’s the part about setting goals in regard to subjective matters. The questions are usually, “How can you be better?” “What are the areas you can improve upon?” And, “what goals do you have to improve your performance...

Did Avery Bradley miss his chance to get paid?

From Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald:In most years, unrestricted free agents are a good bet to return to the team that holds their matching rights. But when Bradley and his camp broke off extension talks with the Celtics over the winter despite the fact that the sides weren’t far apart, the guard may also have lost out on his best-case money scenario for next season.Bradley...
