Celtics maintained a lead for a majority of the game, but never pushed out far enough to take the edge off. Nonetheless Boston came away with the victory 96-92 on a night when they needed a win. Here’s what we liked and didn’t like...

Your Morning Dump… Where Thomas overcame fear to return to form

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

Celtics Notes: Isaiah Thomas Makes Strides; No More Cupcakes For C’s

This looked more like the Isaiah Thomas we’re used to seeing. Thomas was far from perfect Friday against the New York Knicks — his second game back after a bruised lower back sidelined him for eight — but he looked far more composed than he did during Wednesday’s loss to the Miami Heat. The Boston Celtics point guard went just 4-for-13 from the floor (including 2-for-7...

Recap: Celtics give bare minimum in win over Knicks

If you suffered through that game on a Friday night, then you 1) have no life or b) have no life. The Celtics beat the Knicks, 96-92, in a game that just wouldn’t die. My god that 4th quarter lasted forever. The Celtics lead peaked at 11 points in the 2nd quarter but Boston just refused to play hard enough to put away the hapless Knicks.

Cup of Joe. Brad Stevens questioned his decision to come here

There were fleeting moments, Stevens admitted, when he questioned why he took this on, but those doubts have not persisted."I talked with a friend halfway through the season when I was struggling,'' Stevens said. "He told me, 'I've got news for you. You probably haven't hit bottom yet.'"He was right. It was going to take time, but who knew how long? It takes time to build trust.Source...

Isaiah Thomas says he felt good, needs to play better. But should he even have been in the game?

After last night's extremely disappointing 93-86 home loss to the Heat, Isaiah Thomas said the following about his first game back in action (via CSNNE's Jimmy Toscano): My body felt good, other than when I fell one time it hurt. It was just all the other things, getting into the flow of things. Getting my rhythm back. I just wasn't decisive at all. It was tough for me, probably...
