Al Horford electing to opt-out of the final year of his contract with the Celtics on Tuesday was expected. What wasn’t was Horford deciding he didn’t want to re-sign with the Celtics . Danny Ainge seemed to think restructuring Horford’s situation was possible just a few weeks ago, though Adam...

With Kyrie Irving and Anthony Davis garnering most of the Celtics attention as NBA free agency approaches, Marcus Morris’ future with the franchise has flown under the radar. The forward was one of the team’s best players in the first half of the season, though he came back down to earth in the...

So I read the column by WEEI.com’s own Alex Reimer in defense of Terry Rozier yesterday. Of course, the headline, “Terry Rozier’s delusion is perfectly natural” caught my attention first. If this was written satirically I’d understand, but I don’t think that was the case. When I actually read the...

With all the focus on Kyrie Irving heading to the Knicks (or pretty much anywhere that isn’t Boston), it appears New York is taking some precautionary measures in case things don’t go exactly as planned.

Looks like that switch the Celtics flipped when the playoffs started was a little faulty. With the exception of Marcus Morris (14 points and 11 rebounds) and a few hustle plays from the laboring Marcus Smart, this team may have had its worst showing in all of 2018-19 against the Bucks in the 116-91...

After becoming the only undefeated team in the playoffs (4-0), Boston dropped its first game against the Bucks in...

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.
