Khris Middleton drilled seven three-pointers in a game once during the 2018-19 regular season. He did so against the New York Knicks. That alone sums up how things went on the defensive end for Boston in the 123-102 loss to the Bucks on Tuesday. As much as the Bucks said they didn’t need to make...

The Celtics-Bucks Eastern Conference Semifinals matchup is set to start, with top-seeded Milwaukee still the favorite to win the series. Having arguably the best player in the NBA from the 2018-19 season certainly helps the Bucks’ chances. But this series won’t be anything like either team’s first-...

For all the problems Giannis Antetokounmpo presents on the offensive end, as well as Khris Middleton, Eric Bledsoe and Malcolm Brogdon (if he’s cleared to play), there’s still the matter of Milwaukee’s defensive presence. In their last meeting with the Celtics, the Bucks held Boston under 100...

Isiah Thomas (no, not Isaiah Thomas) is not buying what the Celtics are selling. Boston gave off the vibe of a team that figured it all out in sweeping the Pacers in the first round of the NBA Eastern Conference playoffs. But the Hall of Fame guard suggested trouble is waiting for Brad Stevens'...

The Celtics may have moved on from the Bucks, but guard Terry Rozier doesn't appear quite willing to let the last series go. Rozier arrived at the TD Garden on Monday night sporting a vintage Drew Bledsoe No. 11 Patriots jersey, a reference to his heated battle with Bucks point guard Eric Bledsoe...

Just call it the battle of Drew vs. "Who?" Celtics guard Terry Rozier and Bucks counterpart Eric Bledsoe have been at each other's throats all series, so it was only a matter of time before they physically clashed. That moment arrived in the third quarter of Tuesday night's Game 5, when an...

The Bucks beat the Celtics on Friday night and we officially have a series. But more importantly, we also have a villain. Guard Eric Bledsoe made headlines this week when he responded, "Who?" to questions about being owned by Celtics guard Terry Rozier. Perhaps Bledsoe was miffed that Rozier had...

Kyrie Irving’s knee injury was disastrous for the Celtics. It will likely take them out of the contention for a NBA Finals berth in a wide open Eastern Conference. But one positive from Irving’s absence is that the Celtics’ younger players are getting an opportunity to fill the void. Much of the...
