There are two ways to look at Sunday's 104-102 loss to the Bucks in Game 4 of the first round of the playoffs, and we won't know which is valid until the series ends. The first is that the Celtics let a golden opportunity evaporate when Marcus Morris back-rimmed a baseline jumper at the buzzer that...

Jaylen Brown stood at his locker in Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena last May in a moment of big-picture disbelief. "Two years ago, I was in high school," he marveled. "Now I'm playing in the Eastern Conference Finals." There was a happy-to-be-here quality that made perfect sense. Just 20 years old...

Giannis Antetokounmpo wasn't the only freak on the court Tuesday. Celtics swingman Jaylen Brown is an athletic marvel in his own right, a 6-foot-7 leaper who is becoming a matchup nightmare at all three levels. Put a small defender on him, he'll shoot over the top. Sag off him and he'll drill a 3-...

Picture a random NBA game with star teammates fouled out in overtime. The final frantic moments become a scramble for survival. If the remaining mismatched parts somehow produce a win, thank a higher power you only had to navigate the last 150 seconds. Now imagine that scenario playing out for 48...

The Celtics controlled their own destiny in one key sense -- if they beat the host Wizards on Tuesday night, they could avoid John Wall and Co. in the first round of the playoffs. No such luck. The Wizards turned a tense game at halftime into a laugher, rolling to a 113-101 victory that leaves all...

Playing without a point guard is apparently the tipping point. And even then, barely. The Celtics have thrived through all manner of injury this season, but Tuesday night in Milwaukee provided a unique test. With Terry Rozier a late scratch with a sprained ankle, the C's faced the Bucks without any...

Jaylen Brown and Jae Crowder were like brothers in Boston, but they want to crush each other as rivals. Wednesday night's round went to Brown, and he made sure Crowder heard about it after sinking the winning 3-pointer in Boston's 97-94 victory over Crowder's Jazz in Utah. Speaking to ESPN after...

It’s been over five months since we’ve seen Gordon Hayward in action for a Celtics team that’s found themselves at or right near the top of the East. So late March is probably not the time to get overly reflective on what could have been this season. There's also something to be said for the fact...

Over the weekend, millions of people marched in cities across the country to call for gun-control legislation. The Celtics rallied for a similar cause. Some Celtics players filmed a 30-second public service announcement with the Kings about police shootings of unarmed black men, which played in the...
