Celtics drop last game of the season, where do they stand in the lottery?

Boston ended their season with a 118-102 loss at home to the Wizards. The Celtics played well, the lack bigs has hurt the Celtics in the final games, but the bigs played hard like the Celtics have all year. Kelly Olynyk scored a team-high 24 points on 10-of-16 shooting, despite being in foul trouble. Jeff Green added 20 points, while Phil Pressey had nine points and 10 assists....

Recap: It’s all over

  “Just look at the flowers, 2013-14 Celtics.  Just look at the flowers” Isn’t this the way this was supposed to end? No grand, heroic Celtics finale to show off for the home crowd.  No Rondo triple-double.  No Jeff Green 40 point explosion. No.  These Boston Celtics ended their season with the whimper it deserved.  There were bright spots.  There were tight spots.  But...

According to Jay King at Jeff Green just does not possess the drive or genetic composition to be a go to guy in the NBA.“I can’t do it alone,” Green told Holmes.“People don’t realize that this is the first time of me being ‘that guy,’ ” Green added. “I didn’t know what to expect.

Video: Jeff Green earns buzzer beater of the year against Miami

It was a top 5 moment for me in a bleak year. I was hopeful that the Celtics were on their way after Green's miracle corner three. It will go down as one of my favorite moments as a Celtics fans. It was just a bright moment in a year that had very few.

Who's your Boston Celtics MVP for the 2013-14 season?

Over at ESPN Boston they picked their MVP and Rookie Of The Year. The Rookie Of The Year is easy to pick. It's hands down Kelly Olynyk, even though Phil Pressey has been outstanding lately. Over at ESPN Boston, they picked Jared Sullinger as team MVP. Rajon Rondo is clearly the best player, but he's only played in 30 games this season for the Celtics. So is Sullinger the...

Jeff Green Turns It On Too Late; Impressions From Celtics’ Loss To Sixers

PHILADELPHIA — Jeff Green, Kelly Olynyk, Avery Bradley and Chris Johnson were very good late. They were just a little bit too late. Following an atrocious first half in which they fell behind by 19 points and gave up 46 points in the paint to the team with the second-worst record in the NBA, the Boston Celtics recovered Monday to put a scare into the Philadelphia 76ers. Yet this...

Recap: C’s allergic to interior defense, lose to 76ers

The Celtics, without Sullinger, Humphries, or Bayless, struggled to find a presence in the paint, and fell to the 76ers 108-113. A pretty speedy pace from the get-go tonight, both teams put up 33 points in the first quarter, a quarter where interior defense appeared to be entirely an afterthought. Jeff Green and Avery Bradley were shooting hot in the first (12 and seven points respectively...

Green Envy: What Cavaliers fans said - 4/12

Well, the tank looks to have lost a track as Boston has now won two straight. With the two remaining games against horrid Philly and a Wizards team that may rest their starters before the playoffs, the Celtics winning out the rest of the year isn't an absurd proposal. For Cleveland, it was more of the same as a team that many picked to make the playoffs will again be lottery...

Recap: Celtics hold on in the 4th to win???

The Celtics survived a 14 point on 7-10 shooting first quarter from Al Jefferson by shooting just about 53%  themselves.  They hit 3 of 4 from deep and all 5 of their free throws to go into the second quarter down just one. The second belong to Phil Pressey.  His six assists helped turn that deficit into a 2-point halftime lead.  A couple of his passes, especially his baseline...

Danny Ainge is out of his mind comparing Paul Pierce's struggles to Jeff Green's inconsistent play

Danny Ainge is a natural commentator, he did it with TNT for a few years before taking the Celtics job. One of his statements during the Hawks game, caught the ears of many.

Recap: Same sh*t, different game

There was some basketball played in Atlanta tonight, but the highlight of the evening was easily Danny Ainge’s appearance on the CSNNE broadcast. D.A. was open, honest and held nothing back. During the first quarter, while the Atlanta offense was doing basically whatever it wanted, Ainge called the Celts’ defense a “sieve”. Pretty accurate, as Atlanta shot 78% from the field...

This game was all Wizards, all the time. With the exception of the end of the first and some of the second quarter, Boston was never in this game. The C’s never had a lead, and Washington had their lead up to 33 at one point. Washington had their way inside and outside, and Boston put up little resistance on defense.
