Kings-Celtics Preview

The last time Boston went on this type of run at home, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett were getting by with a third-year guard thrust into a more prominent role after Rajon Rondo went out with a torn ACL. Jump forward three seasons and those big names are long gone, though Avery Bradley remains with the Celtics again streaking heading into Sunday's home game against Rondo and a struggling...

Clippers Roll into Orlando for Easy Win Against Magic

AP Photo/John Raoux That’s 15 losses in their last 17 games for the Orlando Magic. The Los Angeles Clippers cruised to a simple 107-93 win on Friday night. Fight and pride were severely lacking from the home squad, which is unacceptable any time they play at Amway Center. Orlando shot just 42.0 FG% while coughing up 54.1 FG%. The Magic only shot 4-of-20 on triples. It’s not...

John Wall Deserves Better from Wizards

Embed from Getty Images John Wall’s 41-point performance Wednesday night against the Golden State Warriors was overshadowed by Stephen Curry’s 51 points and 11 made three pointers. Still, Wall’s effort should be applauded. If anything else, it solidified why he is a top-tier point guard. Easily his best performance of the season, Wall was efficient shooting, making 17...

Fifty games into the 2015-16 NBA season, the Celtics are 28-22.  It's the furthest over .500 (six games) they've been since March of 2013, when Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Doc Rivers were all still in town.Even though the current squad has just a two-game lead on the eighth-seeded Pacers, the C's are also tied for the third-best record in the Eastern Conference: It's been nearly...

Celtics GM Danny Ainge didn't think KG/Pierce trade was a 'bonanza'

Back in June of 2013, the Celtics made what may have been the best trade in their history, giving away Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry so they could receive approximately 472 draft picks from the Nets in return. Now, after the Nets have fallen to the bottom of the East with three picks over the next three years heading to Boston (including a 2017 swap Boston can choose...

The Boston Celtics are in great position for next year’s rise in salary cap. What does that mean?

As most of Celtics Nation is aware of, the C’s have been in rebuilding mode since the departure of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. Danny Ainge and the front office has been steadily acquiring future (draft pick treasure chest) and current (Isaiah Thomas, Brad Stevens) assets to put the franchise in a position where they can build a winning culture and still be in a position to...

Paul Pierce: Celtics Came ‘Real Close’ To Portland Trade; I Wanted To Go To Dallas

It was no secret that Paul Pierce wasn’t happy with being a Boston Celtic as he began to enter his prime. The former Boston swingman was playing the best basketball of his career, and appeared to be poised for a few long postseason runs. The Celtics even got within two games of the NBA Finals before sweeping changes came through the organization. Thus began one of the most frustrating...

Why the Clippers will keep Big Three together longer than they should

As good as they've been this season, there were question marks surrounding the Los Angeles Clippers long before Blake Griffin broke his hand while punching equipment manager Matias Testi last weekend. Since acquiring Chris Paul in December 2011, the Clippers have failed to advance past the Conference Semifinals despite one of the NBA's best collections of top-end talent. When healthy...

The Los Angeles Clippers’ bench depth

The Los Angeles Clippers have found a method of going from being a good team, to a great one. And it does not have to do with the first five players in the game. What truly makes any basketball team great, is it’s depth when it comes to the bench players. And with a key young player developing, old players staying in great shape and working hard, and everyone in between pushing...

Wittman’s Woes – Disappointment in the District

A strong run to the playoffs in 2015, featuring some clutch Paul Pierce and improvement from the John Wall and Bradley Beal combination, had the Washington Wizards flying high. There were some obvious deficiencies that surfaced throughout the year, including the coaching of Randy Wittman, but the relative strength of position in the Eastern Conference made them favorites to return...

The Clipper trap

Looming in the background of larger discussions about how Los Angeles Clippers' ownership could (or should) view the goals of the franchise is a simple truth: it will be hard for the team to get much better while retaining the core of Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, DeAndre Jordan and JJ Redick. Even though Griffin and Paul signed long before the big cap increases and Jordan's contract...

The NBA's most improved and disappointing teams

As we approach the halfway point of the 2016 NBA season, it's time to take a look at how teams are doing compared to last season. Going into the season we expected some teams, like Philadelphia, to have poor records because they are still in the "rebuilding stage." Others, like the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors, are in "win now" mode, and we have set high expectations...

The coaching genius of Brad Stevens

Gregg Popovich, Doc Rivers, Steve Kerr…. and Brad Stevens? To skeptics, putting a 39-year-old head coach in the middle of his third NBA season in the same sentence as surefire first ballot Hall of Fame coaches like the ones previously mentioned borderlines on blasphemy. Why stop there, though? Why not put Stevens in the conversation with all-time great coaches like Red Auerbach...
