The Celtics are finally starting to look like a team that is destined to top the Eastern Conference. Led by Kyrie Irving, who is quickly becoming the best fourth-quarter player in the league, the Celtics are finding their identity and it's coming at a perfect time.

By Evan Marinofsky Danny Ainge is the best executive in today’s NBA. At this point, there’s almost no disputing it. It feels as though every trade he’s made in recent memory has gone right. Trading peanuts for Isaiah Thomas hit the nail on the head. Trading nonsense to land franchise cornerstone...

Two struggling members of Brad Stevens’ starting five found reasons for optimism on Wednesday night. Gordon Hayward started miserably for more than two quarters before delivering some of his best basketball of the season with the second unit. Meanwhile, guard Jaylen Brown looked confident and...

On impact, the injury looked every bit as bad as one Celtics fans won’t soon forget. But the good news for Nets guard Caris LeVert is that he won’t require surgery and might actually return this season. Either way, Gordon Hayward will be there for him if he needs it.

It's time for Brad Stevens to start making changes. After a mediocre start to the season punctuated by a 1-4 road trip that ended with a loss in Portland on Sunday, the Celtics (7-6) are on the verge of becoming a .500 team. Their formula -- fall behind by double digits and then crawl back – is not...
