Celtics Lose, Now 0-2 on the Season

Celtics Lose, Now 0-2 on the Season The Celtics Lost, and are now 0-2 on the season. The final score of 108-100, in favor of the Bucks, was a game where the Celtics simply could not make a run. The NBA is an unforgiving league. Celtics came into the opening night with high expectations for this season. Now they are looking for answers, and last nigh they did not have a way to stop the Greek Freak. He finished the game with 37 points, 13 rebounds and three assists. The Celtics looked like a young, inexperienced new team. The fourth...

A Heartbreaking Opening Night for the Celtics and Hayward

  If you have not heard, C’s starting SF Gordon Hayward suffered what for now looks like a fractured ankle just six minutes into the new NBA season. Before the game’s end, Hayward was en route to Boston.  Celtics dropped the 1st game to the Cavs, with a final score of 102-99. Officials tell me Gordon Hayward is being flown via MedFlight to Boston. He will then be taken to NE Baptist Hosp in Boston. Our best to him — Blair Miller (@BlairMillerTV) October 18, 2017   After the freak accident, the Celtics looked out of sync all over the...

Marcus Smart Keeps Getting Disrespected

WHY IS HE INVISIBLE? The NBA released the 2017 GM surveys, and Marcus Smart keeps getting overlooked by the league. The GMs voted for What bench player makes the biggest impact when he enters the game, and Marcus did not even receive a single vote. Take a look: Yes, correct. Not even a single vote. Despite Marcus having his best season yet. Let’s take a look at his numbers last season: 10.6 Points, 4.6 Assists 3.9 Rebounds 1.6 Steals 2.0 TOs When we talk about the most complete player of the bench, Marcus Smart tops the list. Smart did...

Celtics Preseason Game Recap vs Hornets

CELTICS PRESEAON GAME RECAP Celtics Preseason Game Recap vs Hornets. C´s won with a Final Score of 94 – 82. This was our first look with the new team, and what a fun night! BALL MOVEMENT The game started with some ugly missfires, as expected, but the ball movement was excellent. The C´s had eight buckets in seven dimes to start the game.

Check this out: The Celtics are going to be really tough to guard once they figure some things out: pic.twitter.com/Y1FVUcjXNc — Jay King (@ByJayKing)...

Final Roster Spot

Final Roster Spot The Celtics have a final roster spot, but Andrew Bogut won’t be the player to fill that spot. According to multiple reports, both the Celtics and the Cavs were in on Bogut, but the 32-year old vet decided to take his talents to LA. Now with just three days until training camp, Dany may still be looking to add some more talent to the team. Boris Diaw is heading to France, Tyler Zeller to the Nets, Crawford to Minnesota. The options the Celtics now have are limited, but some impactful players remain in the market. THOMAS...

BREAKING DOWN THE CELTICS ROSTER.

Just a couple weeks ago I was breaking down this Celtics roster that very much included Isaiah Thomas on it. Two weeks later and I’m here thinking, what’s next season starting lineup? That’s 4 starters gone, in 1 offseason. Avery traded to the Pistons for Morris, Amir (yes, I know, but he still was a starter for most of the regular season), Jae the Bae Crowder and the mighty one, IT. Plus Olynyk, Jerebko, James Young, Jordan Mickey, Jackson. That’s a complete roster turnaround. Only Brown, Smart, Rozier and Al left from the ECF team. That’s madness! We are talking about the...
