Recap: Cs edge Pelicans with bare minimum effort

The 29 win Pelicans – fresh off a 14 point loss to the lowly 76ers – walked into the Garden tonight with a starting lineup of Omer Asik, James Ennis, Toney Douglas, Alexis Ajinca, and Dante Cunningham. And that jumbled mess of mediocrity proceeded to engage the Celtics in a fight to the death. Fortunately, talent prevailed as the Celtics won 104 – 97. On most nights a team...

Evan Turner will miss at least one game with injured eye

The Celtics have been dealing with a few nagging things over the past few weeks… and now they’ll be without Evan Turner the next time they take the court. “Evan is good. He’s at home,” Stevens said before practice. “He’s not going to be here today, not going to practice today. He’s not going to play [Wednesday]. But he should be day-to-day after that. The ophthalmologist...

Videos of the Day: Celts beat LA, Iverson heading to Hall

Check out some highlights from last night’s 107-100 win over the Lakers. First up, Isaiah Thomas has yet another stellar performance, this time putting in a team-high 26 points to go with 6 assists. Then peep a guy who I think has the potential to be a solid contributor off the bench, Terry Rozier. Rozier is a big, fast guard who can rebound, pass & score. In 21 minutes, Rozier...

Enemy Chatter: Love for tacos trumps hatred for Boston

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Los Angeles. In Kobe’s final game against the hated Celtics, he was able to deliver on that promise. The fans in attendance at Staples Center might have been the last to witness a solid game from Kobe, given that he only has six left...

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 27: OMGOMGOMG They beat the Warriors!!!

Yep, it’s real. That really happened last night, and Jay and I react to the Boston Celtics ending the Golden State Warriors home winning streak. Among the topics discussed: Isaiah Thomas’ insane third quarter (and continuation of his amazing post-All Star play), Avery Bradley’s amazing defense, Evan Turner’s clutch 4th quarter, and Marcus Smart’s positive impact despite...

Videos of the Day: Photos & vid from big win over GSW

Boston gets what is obviously their biggest win of the season as they go into Oracle and do the impossible-beat the Golden State Warriors. GSW had won 54 straight in their building, but the C’s put an end to that streak with a gutsy performance that got them a 109-106 win. I’ve got all sorts of videos & pics so let’s get to them… First up, Evan Turner scoring 21 points...

Enemy Chatter: The Celtics found the mythical blueprint to beat GS?

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from the Bay area. In my 3+ years covering the team at home, I’ve never seen a team take a hit and get up the way these Celtics did. This doesn’t at all mean they’re better than the likes of the San Antonio Spurs, Oklahoma City Thunder...

Recap: The Celtics end The Streak. Shock Warriors

The team that ended the Golden State Warriors 54 game home winning streak? The squad that beat the Warriors at Oracle Arena for the first time in 504 days? It wasn’t Durant’s Thunder. James’ Cavs. Duncan’s Spurs. It was the Boston freaking Celtics — 109-106, and on April 1st. No fooling. With the Cs up three at five seconds left, Steph Curry sized up an open three, which...

Warriors owner plans to crush everyone for years to come

The slumping Celtics run into the Golden State buzz-saw tonight in a game that might require a miracle for them to win. The Warriors need to win 5 of their final 7 games to eclipse the Bulls record of 72 regular season wins. I’m loving the Warriors success, in large part because they’re fun to watch and they’re keeping LeBron and Cleveland from winning a title. But GS owner...

Recap: Blazers win, 116-109, Celtics drop to 6th place

Al-Farouq Aminu averages 10.1 points and 1.5 three-pointers per game for Portland. He’s not the guy you worry about when facing a team that has a backcourt of Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum. And yet it was Aminu who was the difference as the Blazers beat the Celtics, 116-109. Aminu scored a career-high 28 points on 11-19 shooting, and was 6-11 from the arc. He added nine rebounds...

We’re not the only ones thinking Kevin Durant is a possibility

A couple of weeks ago Kevin Durant said he likes Boston and more than a few of us started to wonder if the free-agent-to-be would entertain the idea of signing with the Celtics. We were quickly dismissed by the sports radio ilk. But SI’s Andrew Sharp includes the Cs in his purely-speculative list of KD options: Working Theory: Take all the dysfunction from the Lakers section...

With the Celtics off the last couple of days, let’s check out some other NBA highlights-both on & off the court. First up, enjoy Steph Curry’s near triple-double night against the Washington Wizards. The Dubs won, again, and inched closer to overcoming the 1996 Bulls’ record 72 wins. Then, we visit LaLa Land where the LOLakers continue to make a mockery of themselves-on...

LeBron takes the night off… to coach?

Get a load of this a-hole, overtly showing up coach Tyronn Lue. It’s one thing for a superstar to advise his teammates on the bench, but it’s another to stand up and patrol the sidelines. I’m not sure how long LeBron played coach last night, but even if he did so for just a few minutes, it’s still ridiculous. Really hoping Lue told him to sit his ass down. Oh, and the Cavs...

Celtics “low-balled” Cleveland for Love

This report comes to you via Zach Lowe and NBC Sports: Cleveland and Boston had trade talks for Love at the deadline, though they died with Boston offering a low-ball package the Cavs wouldn’t consider, according to several league sources. ESPN / Zach Lowe NBC Sports adds this context: Love could help them win now, Wiggins was years away, and LeBron wanted Love. So let’s unpack...

Recap: Celtics get smoked by Clips to begin west coast trip

Celtics get their doors blown off in LA tonight as the Clippers stomp them 114-90. We all know L.A. has a high-powered offense, but their defense, ranked 6th in the league, was also a huge factor tonight. Deandre Jordan and company held the Celts to 34.8% shooting for the night. The Clippers’ offense was firing on all cylinders early, as they shot 60% in the first quarter. It was...

No one tells a story quite like Bill Walton

Bill Walton appeared on The Vertical recently and told a whale of a tale about how he landed in Boston, despite his body being riddled with injuries (transcript via Mass Live): “And then I got to the Boston Celtics, and the biggest problem was that I still had to pass a physical because there’s no way I’d ever been able to pass a physical. But Red Auerbach, he showed up at...

Recap: Celtics survive Suns’ comeback to win road-trip opener, 102-99

With Phoenix locked in a positioning battle with Brooklyn (therefore affecting the Celtics/Nets’ chances in the draft lottery), some fans thought it might be better long-term for Boston to lose the opener of their five-game road trip. They almost got their wish as the Celtics came close to blowing Saturday’s game after leading the Suns by as many as 21 points. But the Celts...

They got it, 91-79, thanks to dominant efforts from Isaiah Thomas (23 points) and Evan Turner (17 points, 7 assists). The C’s also caught a break when Toronto decided to rest All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry. The first half of this game was close. How close? Neither...
