Bradley had 30 points and eight rebounds, and the Celtics beat the Charlotte Hornets 116-104 on Monday night for an important Eastern Conference victory.

The Celtics are doing all the right things, just not at the right time.Don't get me wrong, this "all about 8th-seed" mentality is fun, but not nearly as enjoyable as the still more popular montra of "all about 18."Despite the encouraging signs from the green this season, they are not in the business of "one and done in the playoffs" seasons.

Kawhi Leonard will be a restricted free agent in the offseason and will receive interest for contract offer sheets.
The Boston Celtics likely will pursue an offer sheet with Leonard.
Leonard is averaging 15.9 points and 7.3 rebounds this season.
Is Jared Sullinger overtraining? Is he getting the right dietary advice? And where do the Boston Celtics fit in all of this?
With the exodus of Rajon Rondo to the Lone Star State, many Celtics fans likely thought it would be awhile before they could find pleasure in meditating upon the number 9. The wait is over as ESPN's Forecast panel has voted the top 30 executives and coaches.

Those pesky rumor about Brad Stevens and Indiana University. ESPN college basketball analyst Seth Greenburg apparently went on ‘Mike and Mike’ this morning and claimed that Indiana is Stevens’ dream job.

I mean, if Brad Stevens is simply waiting for enough love...
My friend Drew, who has a ridiculous collection of Celtics/NBA game-used kicks, scored yet another pair recently. Evan Turner gave Drew his “Dynamic Shell” Celtics p.e. after last week’s win over Detroit. They feature his “ET” logo on the tongue and some of his accomplishments emblazoned on the upper.

The Celtics had a day off at home on Saturday, then came out flat against Detroit on Sunday. They then traveled to Broolykn and pulled off a huge win the following night. After another day of rest on Tuesday, they put forth that stinker against Miami Wednesday.Boston faces the Knicks in New York tonight, and clearly the C's will play much better if they didn't have any time off...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Stevens knew he would have to absorb a carousel of roster moves and prolonged stretches of unsuccessful basketball. Yet understanding that in theory and actually experiencing it daily has been grueling.

Danny Ainge sat down this morning for his weekly interview with the Toucher and Rich show on 98.5 The Sports Hub and discussed Isaiah Thomas, the job Brad Stevens has done this year and the team's push for the playoffs.
BOSTON — A hard Dwayne Wade foul earlier this month resulted in an eight-game absence and two weeks of debilitating back pain for Isaiah Thomas.
But before Thomas returned to the lineup Wednesday for the Boston Celtics, he said that he did not take issue with Wade’s rough block attempt, which took place during a March 9 win over the Miami Heat.
“I think you guys did,”...
Anyone who’s ever tried to lose weight knows how hard it can be, and that’s no different for some professional athletes.

Sullinger has had to deal with weight issues his entire life, a problem that followed him to the NBA when he...

It took Evan Turner 360 games to record his first NBA triple-double. The wait for his second wasn’t nearly as long.
