Recap: Celtics doze off in the middle quarters, lose 9th straight

Mike Gorman started off tonight’s broadcast by warning fans that the first game back home after a west coast trip is notoriously ugly.  After a quick start to the game (especially by Avery Bradley, who continued his trend of hot first quarters), the C’s proved Gorman right.  The second and third quarters were ugly messes that saw Jeremy Lin, Chandler Parsons, and Dwight Howard...

Recap: Celts fall to Blazers, road trip mercifully ends

The Celtics were up 32-27 on the Blazers after one quarter. Things looked...

Recap: Curry, GSW snuff out possible Celtics upset

The first two quarters of tonight’s game were easily the Celts’ best of their recent road trip. Boston stumbled at first, going down 10-2 after some early turnover/foul trouble. It looked like Oracle Arena would continue to be Boston’s house of horrors. But the C’s quickly turned things around-especially on the defensive end. The C’s held the Warriors to 47 first-half points...

Jordan Crawford and Avery Bradley combined for 48 points in Boston’s 111-105 loss to the Clippers last night. The man known as “Steez” was very aggressive more aggressive than usual last night, getting the hoop early & often. Bradley’s late game heroics gave C’s fans some hope in the final minute, but were unfortunately not enough. If you were too tired to catch last...

Recap: Better effort, but same result

A much better effort from the guys in green tonight. Granted, it was the second night of a back-to-back, so we did see some ugly moments. But all in all, as a fan, I was much more satisfied with what I saw during tonight’s game in L.A. With the exception of the first quarter, where the Clippers jumped out to a 28-12 lead w/3:02 left, the Celtics competed pretty much through out...
