Western Conference teams are no match for dime-droppin' Brandon Bass-led Celtics

OK, so there is a hint of sarcasm in the title.  But consider this: Before Thursday night the Celtics had lost 23 straight road games vs. Western Conference opponents.  Now they've won two in row.  The last time Boston got road victories on consecutive days against West teams was in Houston and Dallas on March 19-20, 2010.So what's changed?  Brad Stevens inserted Brandon Bass...

Celtics’ Pressey has unique way to get through screens

Sometimes you got to think out of the box and that’s just what Boston’s Phil Pressey did against the Nuggets. Seeing a screen coming his way, instead of running around it, maybe slicing between the defender, Pressey goes all out and fights through the screen. Like literally through the screen. As in underneath the defender’s legs. No joke! Brilliant Phil! I guess being short...

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.

4up/4down: Celtics vs Trailblazers (Game 40 of 82)

Believe it or not, the Celtics won a road game out West for the first time in nearly two years. It was against an undermanned Portland team, but for a rebuilding team it was a quality win.

Though Brad Stevens has spoken of his desire to field a consistent starting lineup, a change in the opening five helped the Celtics score a 90-89 victory over the Portland Trailblazers Thursday night.
