The Celtics starters barely broke a sweat against the Cavaliers in Sunday’s 118-72 win. Kemba Walker (12 points), Jaylen Brown (10) and Daniel Theis (10) were three of the five Celtics to finish in double figures. All three of Walker’s field goals came from beyond the arc. He also scored three from...

If not for Terrence Ross, this game would’ve been a lot uglier. The Magic also didn’t have Nikola Vucevic, who would normally make a big difference. But the way the Celtics looked in Friday’s 100-75 win, his presence might’ve had a limited impact on the outcome. Romeo Langford finally made his...

Brad Stevens has expressed he’ll try some different things with the starting lineup throughout the preseason. That was made abundantly clear when he started Robert Williams against the Hornets on Sunday. But Stevens may have already made up his mind how he’ll use Enes Kanter. If nothing else, he’s...

Now that the Celtics have a 7-foot-7 big man in Tacko Fall, the NBA just had to re-measure all of its players prior to the 2019-20 season. In the course of re-measuring everyone, the NBA decided to list players’ heights without shoes on, having previously measured them with shoes on. Fall is still...

When Enes Kanter first sat down in front of the press at Celtics Media Day, there was a pause before anyone asked him a question. This happened with a couple players throughout the event. There didn’t seem to be a specific reason that linked each instance. Though, in Kanter’s case, it may have had...

First, Romeo Langford’s right thumb was the problem. He had surgically repaired prior to the Celtics drafting him after tearing a tendon during his freshman year at Indiana. Now, it’s his groin. Langford told Tom Westerholm of MassLive he tweaked it. Gordon Hayward was asked about the rookie’s play...
