Boston finds a winning formula and 9 other takeaways from Celtics/Raptors

Boston finds a winning formula and 9 other takeaways from Celtics/Raptors

Role players, reserves and a big dose of Kyrie to close it is a recipe for wins for Boston 1. Well... that’s more like it! It wasn’t the start to the game Boston wanted, and it got a bit bumpy in the second half, but overall this was a winning formula for the Celtics. The role players did their thing, the bench infused a ton of energy and turned the game around and then Kyrie Irving closed it out. In addition, Brad Stevens seemed to have the nine players he trusts most available to him: Irving, Marcus Smart, Jayson Tatum, Marcus Morris and Al Horford to open the game, with Terry...

Celtics’ Jayson Tatum trolls Al Horford with 10-year challenge

Celtics’ Jayson Tatum trolls Al Horford with 10-year challenge

Circulating social media for the past week or so has been the 10-year challenge. It involves posting one picture of yourself 10 years ago and then one from this year. It’s sort of a “glow-up” post, but it’s more focused on the actual amount of years rather than the actual growth of the person Jayson […] The post Celtics’ Jayson Tatum trolls Al Horford with 10-year challenge appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Rozier, Baynes lead bench charge vs. Raptors

Rozier, Baynes lead bench charge vs. Raptors

Kyrie Irving was incredible, Gordon Hayward was the leading scorer on the 2nd unit, but it was Terry Rozier and the return of Aron Baynes that fueled the Celtics. Kyrie Irving will rightly steal all the headlines this morning. He was unbelievably in last night’s win against the Raptors, both as a clutch scorer (10 points in the 4th quarter) and as a distributor (18 assists). The vets Gordon Hayward and Al Horford looked like All Stars next to him, but it was the contributions of two somewhat forgotten “role players” that helped set the tone for arguably Boston’s biggest win of the...

How Jayson Tatum got his groove back

How Jayson Tatum got his groove back

The Celtics’ second-year star broke out of his slump in a big way on Wednesday against the Pacers. The Celtics scored one of their most impressive victories of the season on Wednesday night, absolutely dominating the Indiana Pacers (formerly winners of seven of their last eight games) by a whopping 27 points. It was the kind of win that generates a nearly endless list of positives — Marcus Morris providing an exceptionally efficient 22 points, Jaylen Brown calmly pouring in 22 of his own while playing the most minutes on the team, Kyrie Irving and Al Horford essentially having a night...

Links & Quotes: Where Jaylen Brown played pretty good again

Lots of good stuff on Jaylen Brown’s good recent play. That’s good to see. Good thing I didn’t say “great.” (via Steve Bulpett) “You know, we’re not on a good team, we’re on a great one. We have the talent to be great. So it’s a tough adjustment for any young player, especially coming in and they have expectations, but Jaylen’s doing a great job of just taking it all in and really just adjusting as much as he can and learning from all of the veterans ahead of him.” Al Horford remains on a minutes restriction for precautionary reasons.

Celtics dish out season’s best 37 assists vs. Nets

Celtics dish out season’s best 37 assists vs. Nets

Boston’s balanced attack was the NBA’s second best offense in December. The Celtics have dished out at least 30 assists in each of their last four games, including a season-leading 37 (on 47 made field goals) against the Nets last night. Even when Brooklyn occasionally threw out a zone defense, Boston was able to cut them up with off ball movement and crisp passing. The Celtics’ offensive attack wasn’t centered around a single player either. Kyrie Irving, Jayson Tatum, Al Horford, and Marcus Smart all had at least four assists with Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier dishing out four...
