It's early, but the fit between Isaiah Thomas and Marcus Smart is working

When Isaiah Thomas was acquired at the trade deadline 10 days ago, the move was mostly met with excitement and optimism. The Celtics were adding a player who averaged 20 points per game last season for a pick that figures to be conveyed near the end of the first round in 2016 and Marcus Thornton, a move nearly any NBA general manager would make. But there were questions about Thomas...

ESPN ranks Marcus Smart as the 12th best rookie so far, using some pretty fuzzy logic

Here's a lesson in how not to analyze players, be they rookies or veterans.ESPN's David Thorpe recently put out an article (Insider) where he ranked the top-20 rookies in the league right now. Where did Marcus Smart finish? Thorpe had him at 12.At first that seemed a tad low, but someone could make a case with compelling arguments that 11 other rookies have played better than Smart...

The Celtics now announce Marcus Smart last as a starter. Big deal, slight deal or no deal?

If you've attended a Celtics game recently, you may have noticed a change in how the starters are announced before tipoff. First, it was Rajon Rondo called last in the starting five, then Jeff Green, then Jared Sullinger. Now? Yep, Marcus Smart. #Celtics— Emily Austen (@emilyausten_) February 26, 2015The last name called is typically reserved for the captain of the team, but since...

Celtics coming off best month in Brad Stevens era

As the calendar changed to February, the Celtics knew that the month could make or break their season. The team was 16-30 and searching desperately for a hot streak to push them into the weak Eastern Conference playoff race.Thanks to a 7-4 month, the Celts got that needed boost, as they sit 1.5 games back of the Indiana Pacers for the eighth seed. In the C's four February losses...

Time for Jae Crowder to lay off the three-pointers

Jae Crowder came to Boston in December as the least recognizable part of the three-player package the Celtics got in the Rajon Rondo trade. Since then, Jameer Nelson and Brandan Wright have both moved on and Crowder has become a fan favorite thanks to his relentless effort on the floor.Since he joined the Celtics, Crowder has averaged 8.3 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1 steal...

Isaiah Thomas: 'That's what you want to be a Boston Celtic for.'

With 6:52 remaining in the second quarter last night, Isaiah Thomas skipped a pass over to a wide open Jonas Jerebko at the top of the key.  Jerebko nailed a three-pointer to make the score Celtics 56, Warriors 30.  I repeat, there were six minutes and 52 seconds remaining in the second quarter. The TD Garden went bananas. After the game, Thomas shared his thoughts on the...

Celtics cannot seal the deal against Warriors, aka the best team in the league: 106-101

Wow. I mean, you cannot blame our fearless warriors (hold on, that's their opponent's name, oh well) for blowing up a lead against the Golden State, but holy crap they gave the league and basketball fans all around the world when they built up a lead of 26 points. Seriously, the Celtics, Boston "yeah we've had 22 players on our roster so far this season, so what, we have a great...

Jae Crowder is putting in work on both ends of the court

Not many people, including myself, knew much about Jae Crowder when he was dealt to the Celts in December as part of the Rajon Rondo trade. Crowder may have been better known for his dreadlocks rather than his game, but with his play of late, his hair isn't the only thing getting attention around these parts.On Friday night, as the C's were struggling to find a way to contain Al...

Eye on the Draft: Frank "The Tank" Kaminsky

What if I told you the Celtics could solve their 3-point shooting woes by adding a center? Get Raef LaFrentz out of your heads people, calm down. Frank Kaminsky, the 7-foot 240 pound center out of Wisconsin may not be the ideal fit for Celtics fans, but he's a guy the team will want to consider if they land a lottery pick outside of the top ten.We've covered how badly the Celtics...

Guess who is the hottest team in the Eastern Conference? (Hint: Isaiah Thomas plays for them)

Answer: Your Boston Celtics. Seriously.  The Celtics have won three games in a row, which as I write this is tied for the conference's longest winning streak (although the Hawks may well get their 4th straight in Miami tonight).  Boston is 7-3 in its last 10, which is currently tied for the East's best 10-game stretch.And if it weren't for that ridiculous (and since rescinded)...

NBA admits wrong by rescinding second Isaiah Thomas technical from recent Lakers game

Hours before the Boston Celtics took the court against the Los Angeles Lakers last Sunday, I found myself watching a few episodes of a show called Forensic Files.

Dare we say playoffs? Celtics beat the Hornets 106-98

The Celtics came out firing on all cylinders to begin the game. Marcus Smart in particular was feeling it early knocking down two quick threes to help him score 10 points in the first quarter alone. Like Smart, the C's were making their three point shots at a healthy clip early in the game. However, the deep ball betrayed the Celts in the second period(5-13 in the first half). Old...

Amid turmoil, can Rajon Rondo turn things around in Dallas?

Rajon Rondo has always been a prickly personality whose competitive and combative nature is sure to rub some people the wrong way. But when the Mavericks acquired the point guard on Dec. 18, the move was met with near unanimous praise. Dallas lost some depth in Brandan Wright and Jae Crowder, but a starting lineup of Rondo, Dirk Nowitzki, Monta Ellis, Tyson Chandler and Chandler...
