Waking up Sunday morning, Brian and Sam Bell turned on the TV and there they were on ESPN's SportsCenter. It offered the latest punctuation for what was a night neither will soon forget.

Brad Stevens has never been a short-term kind of guy, most of the decisions he makes this early in the regular season have the big picture in mind. Through 16 games, the Celtics' head coach has been patient with his group's progress. On the road he gave them the green light to make a 20-point...

Anointing Jayson Tatum as the Celtics' secondary closer was premature. After the second-year forward followed up a 23-point game on opening night against the Sixers, with an impressive fourth-quarter performance that put the Knicks away for good a few days later, Tatum was all of a sudden...

Had last summer worked out just a little differently, Hayward would've been wearing No. 20 for the visiting Jazz.

Jae Crowder, in many ways, is the heart and soul of the Celtics. He's the one who basically said, "Who needs him?" after Kevin Durant spurned the C's this winter, and he was none too pleased with fans who cheered a rival on Tuesday night. The C's beat the Jazz, 115-104, but what got Crowder going...
