Should the Boston Celtics Think About Trading Jeff Green?
January 21st, 2014 at 2:34 PM
What could we possibly write about once the trade deadline passes and the rumors are gone? We'll probably write about the lottery, tanking, and who could be potential additions in the summer.  ***PHOTO1*** We probably won't write about what's going on during the games though. That would be boring, right? So, let's dive...

January 20th, 2014 at 10:51 AM
In every sport a team needs a closer. Baseball even has a position called closer, to do just that. Close a game. The Boston Celtics, in their last two losses, have been lacking a closer.  ***PHOTO1*** In the past Celtic fans were used to watching Paul Pierce do this: ***VIDEO1*** Then, last year the...

Courtney Lee Unhappy About Brad Stevens’ Player Rotation Following Loss to Washington Wizards
December 22nd, 2013 at 11:53 AM
The tenor in the Boston Celtics locker room has been rather placid over the course of the season. Losses and wins are met with equal enthusiasm, or lack there of. The players, in most cases, have taken on the attitude of their coach. The process is often more important than...

Pressure on Boston Celtics’ Point Guards Displays the Need for Rajon Rondo
December 10th, 2013 at 10:33 PM
The questions have begun about Rajon Rondo's return and how he might change the chemistry on the court for this Boston Celtics team. His playing style can sometimes lead to stagnant offensive skids because he likes to have the ball in his hands. However, on night's like Tuesday against the...

Brad Stevens and the Boston Celtics are Finding Their Groove in the Fourth Quarter
November 26th, 2013 at 10:02 AM
The beginning of the 2013-14 campaign for the Boston Celtics was marked with multiple warts. One of the biggest was the way the team was closing out games. They lost their opening four games after holding the lead in the fourth quarter each time. They were lost and confused and...

Jordan Crawford and Brandon Bass Help Boston Celtics Snap Their Losing Streak.
November 24th, 2013 at 12:45 PM

Looking Head at the Remainder of the Boston Celtics November Schedule
November 17th, 2013 at 11:42 AM
First it was Jared Sullinger on Friday night, tallying 26 points off the bench. Then, Avery Bradley dropped 27 on the Minnesota Timberwolves.

November 14th, 2013 at 9:45 AM

November 9th, 2013 at 1:25 PM
We're only six games into the 2013-14 season, so any sort of realistic reactions are difficult to make. Everything comes across as knee jerk and short sighted. We thought we would get in on the act here at Celtics 101 and discuss the Jordan Crawford point guard phenomenon. Let's give...

Gerald Wallace is Having Difficulty Finding Any Pleasure in the Boston Celtics’ First Win
November 7th, 2013 at 11:42 AM
Gerald Wallace wants to win basketball games. He's an intense player whose nickname "Crash" is apt. However, it seems that Wallace's desire to win is only matched by his desire to do it on his own terms, the way he likes it. Before last night's victory over the Utah Jazz Gerald...

Gerald Wallace Will Need to Continue His Momentum Throughout the Preseason
October 9th, 2013 at 7:00 AM
Gerald Wallace comes across as a streaky player. He feeds off energy and momentum. The opening preseason game was a good start for the veteran seeking a fresh start in Boston. The aptly nicknamed "Crash" scored 16 points, earned a few Tommy Points, and ran hard throughout his 26 minutes. As...
