When it came to year-ending predictions, this wasn't probably in the mix when it came to these Celtics. Brad Stevens' team finished off the 2018 calendar year with a 120-111 loss to the Spurs in San Antonio. When a team scores 46 points in one quarter -- as the Spurs did in the third -- that's...

Every year, a handful of takes make me pull the remaining hairs from my head or boil my blood enough to motivate "Jim in the car" to place a call to the station. They're too numerous to count, but that's what makes sports radio habit-forming, if not addictive, and yes my name is Jim and I'm an...

Celtics head coach Brad Stevens believes his team had a healthy discussion following Friday night's 120-107 loss against the Bucks. It gave his players an opportunity to open up with one another and reflect on the team's shortcomings. Although the timing of the meeting wasn't ideal -- Stevens would...

Brad Stevens once again has his work cut out for himself. After spending the first 30 games of the regular season carving out roles for his key guys, Stevens now has to find a way to make up for the production lost in his frontcourt. The loss of Aron Baynes, who suffered a broken hand in the...

The Celtics haven’t looked like a championship team through the season’s first quarter, but perhaps they can take some inspiration from one of their oldest nemeses. Pat Riley battled the Celtics for titles as a player, coach, and executive, and in 2006, he led the Miami Heat to their first...

It’s both incomplete and cliché to say that now is the time when Brad Stevens will really earn his stripes as a coach. He’s earned it in spades already with incremental overachievement year after year. His Celtics teams were overachieving, fighting hard and incrementally improving even well prior...

The list of Celtics who have met or exceeded expectations this season is depressingly short: Kyrie Irving, Marcus Smart, Marcus Morris. The list of Celtics who have failed to do so is depressingly long: everybody else. That said, some disappointments are more disappointing than others. And after a...

The easiest thing to say about these Celtics is that it's undoubtedly going to get better. OK. Fair enough. You have the level of talent this team possesses that's not exactly a leap of faith considering Brad Stevens' team sits at 10-10, having lost eight of its last 12 games following the latest...

For the first time in two years, Brad Stevens is coaching a .500 team. The Celtics head coach has never led a roster with such high expectations throughout his NBA tenure, thus, no one could have predicted his team to fall this low 18 games in. That is their lot in life after 117-109 loss to the...

The Celtics continue to lean on Kyrie Irving at the end of games. But it's a formula that isn't always going to translate into wins, as was evident in Boston's 117-112 loss to the Hornets Monday night. (For a complete recap, click here.) Sure, it was Irving's 23 points in the fourth quarter and...
