Fast Break: Celtics dominated on glass in loss to Bulls

Isaiah Thomas drives on Michael Carter-Williams during Thursday’s game. (Dennis Wierzbicki/USA Today Sports) The Celtics might be a trendy pick to reach the Eastern Conference finals this season, but right now they don’t look anything like a team ready to make a breakthrough. One night after an uninspiring victory over the lowly Nets, the Celtics were dominated on the boards...

The Boston Celtics Learned a Valuable Lesson Last Night

The Boston Celtics got much more than a victory last night. The Boston Celtics are entering the season with high expectations. Last night, they were expected to handle the Brooklyn Nets with ease — as most teams will be this year. For three and a half quarters, they did. Since the end of the Kevin […] The Boston Celtics Learned a Valuable Lesson Last Night - Hardwood Houdini...

Locked On Celtics: The season opener postgame podcast

The Celtics are BACK!! And Sam Packard joins me to run down the good, the bad, and the ugly from a near collapse against the Brooklyn Nets.

Recap: Celtics open season with win and without any defense

David Butler/USA Today Of all the expectations/predictions surrounding this team, a top 5, lock-down defense was the most common and most realistic. Or so I thought. The C’s opened the season with a 122-117 victory over the Brooklyn Nets. And while any victory is a good victory, this game was troubling for two reasons: 1) the hapless Nets scored 117 points and 2) the Celts let...

Recap: Celtics Up and Down in a Wild Win over Brooklyn, 122-117

Well, that got interesting. After a frenetic first half that saw way more offense than probably anyone anticipated, Boston was pulling away in the second half. Isaiah Thomas was finally getting hot. Al Horford was producing everything he promised to bring and more, on both sides of the floor. Jae Crowder was hitting more long range shots than usual. Jaylen Brown was repeatedly trying...

Celtics cut former first-round pick Hunter on his birthday

For a professional basketball player, getting paid to play on your birthday has to be a highlight every year. Sadly for one player, instead of playing on his birthday, he was waived by his team. With the 28th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, the Boston Celtics drafted R.J. Hunter out of Georgia State. The 23-year-old played in 36 games for the Celtics last season and averaged...

The battle for the Boston Celtics’ 15th and final roster spot apparently has ended. The Celtics waived second-year guard R.J. Hunter on Monday, a source told ESPN.com’s Jeff Goodman.

What's next? The small man's game for the Celtics

My favorite element in all of basketball is the free-flowing guard that is too small to be labeled a shooting guard but can score way better than the traditional point guard. The reason why is because there is an impulsive spirit within those players. Most of them were passed on by big name colleges because you can’t teach height, and there are thousands of 6’2″ combo guards...

Horford's addition gives Celtics high hopes for new year

BOSTON (AP) From afar, Al Horford has always had respect for the history of the Boston Celtics. He made his first visit to the Garden as a rookie in 2007 and found himself drawn to the championship banners that hung above the court. That was the same season that Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen joined Paul Pierce to form the Big 3 and went on to win Boston's 17th NBA championship...
