Boston Celtics forward/center Al Horford scored a season-high 27 points during a 105-99 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday, adding eight rebounds, six assists, one steal, two blocks and one three-pointer in 33 minutes. What It Means: Horford has now scored 20 or more points in two of his last three games. He picked up the slack with Isaiah Thomas out as he took 16 shots, the most in one game he has taken in over two months. Don't expect another huge game on Monday with Thomas expected to be available. Despite the loss, Horford was the best player on the floor on Sunday,...

Celtics block out Suns 130-120 despite Booker’s 70

Boston avenges a buzzer beater loss in Phoenix. The headline (in Phoenix at least) will be Devin Booker’s 70 points in the Garden, but Boston will take the wire-to-wire win 130-120. Isaiah Thomas continued his 35-game streak of leading the Celtics in scoring tonight with 34 points and chipping in 7 assists. With Avery Bradley out sick, Jaylen Brown replaced him in the starting lineup and finished with solid line of 9 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 assists. Al Horford continued his near triple-double pace in March with 15-10-6. Isaiah looks 'em off! pic.twitter.com/Dsm4k8rcTI— Boston...

The Read & React: playoff poise

The Read & React: playoff poise

The Celtics are now 23-7 with their starting lineup intact and 23-19 hurt. Playoff rotation coming in to focus? (Keith P. Smith): For most of the year, due to injuries, experimentation or both, the Celtics have played 10 to 11 players a night. Come the postseason, teams generally cut their rotation down to eight or nine core players and one or two who see spot minutes. It seems like Boston, much like the last two season, is closing in on determining their playoff rotation as the season winds down. What do we know for sure? The starters, barring something unexpected will be Al Horford, Amir...

Celtics notebook: Zeller plays great big role off bench again

Al Horford admits that he’s never had to worry about keeping himself ready despite spending long stretches of time on the bench.That’s why the Celtics big man marvels at one of Tyler Zeller’s more remarkable attributes: consistency in the face of inconsistent playing time.“It’s difficult. I’ve been very fortunate I’ve never been in that position, but it’s got to be difficult because you’re preparing every night like something’s going to happen,” Horford said. “It’s like the backup quarterback. Nothing’s there. But he’s managed it as well as I’ve seen. And then...

Celtics complete season sweep of Pacers with 109-100 win

A balanced offensive effort by Boston gave them the edge over Indiana The Celtics took the court against the Pacers tonight in a potential playoff preview. Al Horford opened the scoring for the Celtics and notched some quick assists as well. However, after a quick start, the offense struggled. Their six turnovers killed them in the first quarter. However, their defense was stout, even after allowing quite a few offensive boards. One of the strengths of this Celtics team is taking advantage of mismatches on offense. With the offense lagging, they used this tactic to generate some points....

If there’s one dividend from the early season injury bug that the Celtics are cashing in on now it’s rest. Specifically, it’s the rest players like Avery Bradley, Kelly Olynyk, Al Horford and Jae Crowder were able to gain as the rest of the league was going through the grind.  Every year, there’s intense debate […]
