It was obvious the Celtics were royally screwed up this season, from dropping late-season games to the lowly Hornets to their seeming never-ending leadership crisis. And now that the season is mercifully over, some players may feel free to speak more bluntly about the team’s sorry state. That’s...

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...

In the course of the Mut & Callahan’s critique of Brad Stevens, Kyrie Irving and the Boston Celtics Wednesday morning, Mut brought up a minor point about Marcus Smart being a let-down in Game 4. He added Smart needs to be more like his regular season self. There was zero disagreement from...

Jalen Rose does not think it would be a bad thing if Kyrie Irving spurned the Celtics and signed elsewhere this offseason. In fact, Rose thinks it would be the best outcome for this wildly disappointing group. On ESPN’s “Get Up” Tuesday, Rose said he thinks Irving’s teammates are hoping he decides...

The Celtics have not responded to adversity all season long, so there is no reason to expect them to start now. The only appropriate end for this lethargic group of All-Stars that's slogged its way through a maddening season is an early playoff exit, which they are on the brink of achieving. The 60...

Stephen A. Smith thinks the Celtics are in jeopardy, unless Antoine Walker can get hot from outside. OK, OK, I’m kidding about the last part. But you believed it, right? This is the guy who exclaimed Dwayne Haskins is “more of a runner” than thrower and warned football fans everywhere to watch out...

It look less than two minutes for the Celtics to unravel against the Bucks Tuesday, allowing Glenn Ordway to take a prolonged victory lap. Though Kyrie Irving shot like Markelle Fultz for the bulk of the contest, the Celtics were only down 74-71 with 7:06 remaining in the third quarter. Then Boston...

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...

Game 2 is an absolute must-win for the Milwaukee Bucks. They’ve already lost home-court advantage and a loss on Tuesday creates serious potential for a sweep, as crazy as that may sound. So the Celtics can’t literally end the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Tuesday, but that can make it damn near...

The Celtics blew out the Bucks in Game 1 and held Giannis Antetokounmpo to 7-for-21 from the floor and just 4-for-15 from the paint. So naturally, the Bucks’ star says they don’t need to make any adjustments against Boston’s suffocating defense. “I don’t think we should change at all,” Giannis said...
