Avery Bradley really wants to get back to playing. But the Celtics want him 100 percent when the games really matter in April and May. To that end, Bradley understands the Celtics being ultra-cautious with his sore right Achilles, which is just about fully healed. That injury forced him to miss his 15th straight game […]

Al Horford fills up stat sheet in win Celtics win over the Clippers

Boston Celtics forward/center Al Horford stuffed the stat sheet with 13 points, 15 rebounds, six assists, two steals, two blocks, and three three-pointers in Sunday's win over the Los Angeles Clippers. What It Means: While Horford's shot was off all night -- 4-for-13 from the field -- the veteran recorded a season-high in rebounds as he did all the little things the Celtics needed to ensure the victory. Since returning from a groin injury, Horford has averaged only 12.0 points per game on 38.3% shooting in his past four games. While is offense was lacking, Horford posted the...

Celtics notebook: Group effort on defense to stop big scorers

WALTHAM — Though James Harden scored 30 points last week against the Celtics, they believe they have developed a blueprint for guarding major scorers with the way they harassed the Houston Rockets star that night.Guarded by everyone from Jae Crowder and Marcus Smart to Al Horford, Harden had an especially inefficient night (6-for-18, 2-for-11 on 3-pointers, seven turnovers) in what became the biggest C’s win of the season. Tonight, the Celtics would have turned that wide-ranging cast approach on the Toronto Raptors’ DeMar DeRozan, the player who roasted them for season-high 41 points on...

Avery Bradley’s progress invaluable, underrated for Celtics

Avery Bradley’s progress invaluable, underrated for Celtics

The Celtics have a right to feel good about themselves as they prepare to begin a four-game homestand this evening in first place by a half game in the Atlantic Division. They fought off the approaching demons of a three-game slide, including losing at home to the Knicks and getting blasted in Washington, with three wins in the next four nights.But while they won the last two without Al Horford, who is expected back soon from a groin strain, the C’s know they’ve been bailing water to make up for the absence of Avery Bradley (Achilles strain) in 10 of the last 11 games.“He’s a big part...

Celtics notebook: Injured Al Horford misses trip to Milwaukee but more comfortable with new team

MILWAUKEE — The Celtics had hoped to have Al Horford back with them last night after he’d missed Friday’s win over Orlando with a groin strain, but he was removed from the boarding list for the flight here later that evening.“That was a last-minute, late-(night) decision,” said Brad Stevens before taking on the Bucks. “Doc (team physician Brian McKeon) wanted him to get a scan (yesterday). The soreness is a little bit still there, but for the most part dissipated, and the scans look fine, so he’s day to day.”Horford is expected to go through some type of workout today to gauge...
