Ben Simmons had his way with the Celtics in the paint. Boston had a rough shooting performance from the floor. But there was one driving force that led to the Celtics’ 107-93 loss in Philadelphia: missed free throws. The Celtics only made 20 of their 34 free-throw attempts (58.8%). That’s 14 free...

The NBA season is underway and it’s time for a “fresh start” in Boston. Here’s the season preview for the 2019-20 Celtics: Driving force... Signing Kemba Walker in the offseason was huge. Gordon Hayward being back to full-strength is important. But Boston’s success this year is reliant on one...

A lot has been made of Jayson Tatum’s comments from Celtics Media Day about his shot selection. He said he was going to take more threes and drive to the rim at a greater frequency. Naturally, that would mean he’s going to take fewer mid-range jumpers. Tatum told WEEI.com he isn’t abandoning the...

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...

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.

The NBA’s re-measurements of all its players have yet to come out, so Enes Kanter is still listed at 6-foot-11. It’s hard to imagine he’ll be below 6-foot-10, if he doesn’t still measure in at his currently listed height. Point is, Kanter is tall by anyone’s standard. Yet, somehow, during the first...

Each of the four Celtics who played under Gregg Popovich for Team USA this summer has had nothing but good things to say about the San Antonio Spurs coach. One would think they all could have learned something from the five-time NBA champion. Jayson Tatum, in particular, took a major lesson from...
