Recap: Isaiah Thomas is The Force at Celtics shoot down Suns

It was Star Wars Night in the US Airways Center in Phoenix, but The Force was with the Boston Celtics. That force was 5’ 9” dynamo Isaiah Thomas, who made crucial plays down the stretch to key Boston’s 115-110 win over the Suns. The victory snapped a two-game losing streak and prevented an 0-3 western road trip. Boston had led by as many as 20 points in the 3rd quarter, and...

Thomas’ debut, condensed game video vs Lakers

Isaiah Thomas’ Boston Celtics debut was unfortunately tarnished by some awful officiating. But if you’re a C’s fan, you still have to be happy with what you saw. Thomas had 21 points in 25 minutes off the bench in Boston’s disappointing 118-111 OT loss to the Lakers. Isaiah also grabbed 5 rebounds, had 3 assists & 2 steals. At least Brad Stevens knows Thomas will have...

4up/4down: Celtics vs. Lakers (Game 53 of 82)

It was definitely not the ending that we wanted to see, but this is the NBA, and on any given day teams can catch you off-guard. With most of the frontcourt gone and 3 new bodies to infuse into the system, this is the most vulnerable the Celtics will probably be, and the Lakers knew it. Let’s get into what we like, and didn’t like. Up 1. I-S-A-I-A-H  T-H-O-M-A-S Man oh man,...

Recap: Celtics scrap to end, but can’t put away the Lakers in OT

It was fun, it was infuriating, than depressing, then fun again, but then back to depressing. Celtics lost a semi-important game to the Lakers (if you’re into the playoff race), but how we loss is almost more annoying than the fact that we lost. As an official it’s important that you have control over the game to make sure it played in the fairest and safest way possible. However...

Why the Smart/Bradley/Thomas backcourt will work

Since the Celtics have acquired Isaiah Thomas there has been a lot of chatter about how he fits. The main concern among fans is that Thomas, who has been known to be a bit of ball-dominant player, will take away valuable minutes that rookie Marcus Smart could be getting to develop his game. There’s also the concern about how well the 3 guard rotation of Smart/Bradley/Thomas...

The Pierce/Garnett trade is a gift that keeps on giving

It’s so hard to keep track of all the moving parts in Danny Ainge’s rebuilding plan. There are so many picks with so many protections from so many teams. Players have come and gone. And, the thing that most people aren’t talking about, is how the Celtics structure just about every trade to get themselves a “traded player exception”. If you know what a TPE is, then you...

Thornton, Prince traded away as Ainge finally gets Isaiah Thomas

At this point, I feel like Danny Ainge was inside the maternity ward at Isaiah Thomas’ birth offering his mom Austin Ainge and a conditional future son in exchange for her newborn.  As soon as the Suns showed interest in trading Thomas, it was clear Boston would be involved. And today, finally, Ainge’s obsession has been realized… Isaiah Thomas is a member of the Boston Celtics...

Tayshaun Prince, Brandon Bass and Marcus Thornton can all be had, and, while it’s hard to picture another club wanting to take on 32-year-old Gerald Wallace with $10.1 million left on his contract for 2015-16, at least one team in the Western Conference mix has been...
