Robert Williams tweaked his groin during the Celtics’ pre-practice work on Tuesday. He received MRI, but the Celtics aren’t concerned. “(Team doctors) didn’t think it was anything big,” Brad Stevens said. “He wasn’t going full speed or anything when it happened.” There were a few Celtics who did go...

It took a while, but the “We want Tacko!” chants eventually paid off for Celtics fans when the fourth quarter rolled around and Tacko Fall finally entered the game. First, it was the tip-slam. Tacko with the putback jam! pic.twitter.com/Khc38bTVtH — Boston Celtics (@celtics) October 7, 2019 Then...

Each of the Celtics who’ve been asked about Gordon Hayward’s current level of play has said something to the effect of “He’s back.” Enes Kanter probably went the furthest when he said Hayward is going to “shock the world.” Maybe that was the comment that caught Danny Ainge’s attention. Because,...

Two Celtics averaged a team-high 1.3 blocks per game in 2018-19. One of those two logged 29 minutes a night in the 68 games he played. The same individual now plays for the 76ers. Yes, it’s Al Horford. The other only appeared in 32 games and averaged 8.8 minutes. Which means his blocks per 36...
