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...

Jeff Green nearly breaks the record for longest shot all-time – except it didn’t count

Jason Whitney Boston Celtics forward Jeff Green launched a near full-court shot with 0.3 seconds left in the first half and drilled it. However, Green was a bit late on the release and thus, the shot didn’t count. The record is held by Baron Davis who sunk a one-handed 89-footer, but this shot looks like it could have been extremely close to at least tying the record. You be the...

A Look At Celtics Players As Assets

It’s been a very strange season for the Boston Celtics. After the “Big Three” years, the team certainly looks as if it lacks talent. The truth is, second-year head coach Brad Stevens has done a pretty solid job of maximizing mid-level talent. The team isn’t about to make the playoffs—even in a weak (though improving) Eastern Conference—but the Celtics at least remain...

What the Wizards did to the Celtics in the 4th: Could We See It Again Tonight?

When Celtics fans saw the first of many Rasual Butler 3s drop on the first possession of the 4th quarter, we all knew what was coming. No lead shy of 30 seems safe. It’s sad, but true. So when the Celtics went into the 4th with an 18 point lead Sunday, we all collectively held our breath, waiting for the inevitable. Sure enough, the Wizards were able to cut the lead down to 7 in...
