Navigating the Celtics’ Offseason

Trends and Forces        No team operates in a vacuum. The Celtics, coming off a positive season with a disappointing end, are entering what is viewed as a critical offseason at a time when the league’s traditional team-building foundational principles are changing. This is well-trod territory, but it’s worth just looking at what the “new TV deal” cap increase looks like...

Celtics Free Agents: Evan Turner In; Jared Sullinger, Tyler Zeller Out

The Boston Celtics’ season ended rather abruptly Thursday night, but there’s still plenty of reasons to be excited about the future. The Celtics are entering one of their most important offseasons in years. They’re armed to the teeth with draft picks and boast a promising young core, but still need to make a splash in free agency and via the NBA Draft if they want to escape...

Recap: Hawks deliver kill shot to Celtics season

Courtesy: USA Today Thank god that’s over. I love a grit and balls playoff dogfight but this team was borderline unwatchable in the playoffs. Even the victories were brutal. The Hawks choked out the Celtics, 104-92, to win this series in 6 games. Atlanta’s recipe for victory was the same: swarm Isaiah Thomas and dare the others to beat them. The others couldn’t. Boston shot...

Celtics Wrap: Rally Falls Short In Season-Ending Game 6 Loss To Hawks

BOSTON — There was a lot to like about the Celtics’ 2015-16 season. Just not how it ended. The Celtics couldn’t shake their offensive woes Thursday in a win-or-go-home Game 6 against the Atlanta Hawks. The result was another lopsided contest, with one last Boston comeback falling short in a 104-92 loss that vaulted the Hawks into the second round and send the C’s packing...

Celtics fall to Hawks 104-92, get eliminated from playoffs

After another, lets say, less than stellar shooting night, the Boston Celtics lost to the Atlanta Hawks 104-92 and were eliminated from the 2016 NBA Playoffs. Much like the previous three losses in the series, the Atlanta defense stifled the C's offense and Boston did no favors for themselves with their shooting performance. Despite making some noise in the fourth quarter, the C...

Atlanta Hawks advance to the second round after defeating the Celtics 104-92 in Game 6

It took six games, but the Hawks overcame the Celtics. The Atlanta Hawks went into Game 6 wasting no time, and jumped all over the Boston Celtics, running away with a 104-92 win. Al Horford got a quick offensive foul early in the game, which appeared to be a bad sign for the Atlanta Hawks, but they would recover nicely. Jonas Jerebko came out hot for the Celtics, scoring a quick...

Deja Vu All Over Again: Celtics Fall to Hawks in Game 6, Season Ends

  Other than the jersey colors, Game 6 ran pretty much the same path as Game 5. The Celtics played great D early and forced several turnovers, but they only got 3 points off of them and struggled to hit shots overall. This led to various players forcing shots, and Atlanta was eventually able to respond and pull away by halftime. Isaiah Thomas’s call for his teammates to step up...

Isaiah Thomas ‘thumbs up, ready to roll’ for Game 6, no lineup changes for Celtics

(Bob DeChiara-USA Today Sports) With the season on the line, Isaiah Thomas is indeed ready to go for Game 6 against the Hawks.  “He told me on Tuesday night after the game, he sent me a text late in the night that said he’s fine, I saw him again [Wednesday] before we met and in film and...

Celtics-Hawks Game 6 Preview: Can the Celtics Get Even Smaller?

As Jesse noted yesterday, this series is a lesson in punch, counter punch. In Game 3, Brad Stevens decided to go small, with Jonas Jerebko starting in the frontcourt instead of Jared Sullinger. In Game 5, Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer responded to a rough first seven minutes by going smaller, taking Al Horford out of the game and moving Paul Millsap to center. With their backs...

Recap: House of Horrors

Phillips Arena continued to be Boston’s personal house of horrors tonight, as the Celts get smoked by the Hawks 110-83 in Game 5. The first quarter of tonight’s game was an offensive horror show for both squads. The Celts’ shots simply weren’t falling, but thankfully their pitbull defense was on point. Boston “swarmed” the Hawks on every possession to quote Brian Scalabrine...

Celtics Wrap: C’s On Brink After Ugly 110-83 Game 5 Loss To Hawks

The Boston Celtics finally shook their first-quarter woes at Philips Arena on Tuesday. Unfortunately, they forgot to show up for the final three quarters.

A look back at the many ways the Hawks choked away Game 4 against the Celtics

Standing still and letting the clock out run proved to be an ineffective final play for Atlanta.With 33 seconds left in the first half on Sunday, an Isaiah Thomas hoop put the Celtics up 46-45.  Boston then failed to score for the next 5:11 of game time, and the Hawks used a 17-0 run to build a 62-46 lead midway through the third quarter.Things were looking bleak for the C's, but...

Jonas Jerebko to the rescue as spot starter in Games 3 and 4

Since President Brad Stevens put Jonas Jerebko in the starting lineup, the Celtics are 2-0 and have evened their series with the Hawks at 2 games a piece. Jerebko had not started an NBA game in 3 years, played a team high 36 minutes (the first time he's played 30 minutes since 2012), and put up 11 points and 12 rebounds (another team high) as our small ball big man.

Jonas Jerebko is Everything Boston Needed from Sullinger

Jonas Jerebko quietly put together a solid season for the Boston Celtics. He appeared in 78 games for the Celtics this season but rarely made a noticeable impact on the game. Averaging 4.4 points (2nd lowest of career) and 3.7 rebounds (2nd lowest of career) per game on a career-low 41.3 percent shooting, his production was small […] Jonas Jerebko is Everything Boston Needed...

Recap: Mostly dead Celtics come back and win in OT

This Celtics team is something, man. No one can really explain what they’re doing. There’s no formula for this. They’re relying on a Detroit Piston cast-off, a 2nd-year player known as much nationally for his performance art flops as he is for anything else, a good player who’s not himself due to injury, and one of the smallest star players the league has ever seen.
