Celtics overcome the depleted Heat 112-104

The Celtics get another road-win as Al Horford celebrates the birth of his second child The Celtics made the trip to Miami without Al Horford, who missed his tenth game of the season. However, only the most blackhearted Boston fan would find fault with Horford’s absence, as the proud father was celebrating the birth of his second child. Al Horford is out tonight. (his wife just had their second baby)— Adam Himmelsbach (@AdamHimmelsbach) November 28, 2016 Besides, even without their starting center the Celtics were less worse for wear than their competition, as the Miami Heat...

The Read & React: Avery Bradley leads Celtics to win over #NetsPick

Avery Bradley continued to lead the Celtics as they beat the Nets on Thanksgiving eve. Bill Sy breaks down Bradley’s evolution, while Jared Weiss dives into the film on the Isaiah Thomas-Al Horford connection. Amir Johnson having a hard time adjusting (Alex Kungu): The Celtics ended the game with a marvelous display free-flowing basketball that lead to plenty of penetration, tons of open shots, and a smothering defense lead by a three-guard lineup. Though much will be made of the great finish, something to monitor has been the play of Amir Johnson. In his time in Boston, Johnson has had...

The Read & React: Rozier sparks bench unit comeback

Even with the return of Al Horford and Jae Crowder, it was second year guard Terry Rozier that reminded the Celtics of their identity. (Sean Penney): It took until the fourth quarter to do it, but the Celtics finally managed to do what we expected them to do against this young Timberwolves team. They tightened up their defense, using stops on that end to fuel a 19-0 run to open the final frame. Minnesota's confidence shattered down the stretch, to the point where Karl-Anthony Towns was the only one that looked comfortable taking a shot. Their hesitance led to bad shots and turnovers,...

17-0 fourth quarter run propels Celtics past Wolves 99-93

Al Horford’s interior defense locks down the Timberwolves late and heavy sets of passing opens up the offense Boston needed to come back down big and steal a win on the road. Tommy Heinsohn called Karl-Anthony Towns “a load” during halftime. Monday night in Minnesota he was one that would not get off the Celtics’ backs, until the fourth quarter. His now renowned footwork on the dribble, quick pullback jump-shot, and massive frame tore a hole through Boston’s already-embattled early season defense in the first half. Along with a block and eight rebounds, he hit seven of his first...

The Read & React: Celtics find missing parts in Detroit

For the first time in thirteen games, the Celtics are whole and all the missing pieces came up clutch in a tight win. Positive signs (Keith Smith): Well, that is more like it! Welcome back Al Horford and Jae Crowder! Tonight gave us glimpses of how good the Celtics can be. The defense ranged from spectacular to awful. There were communication breakdowns, but that is to be expected as these guys haven't had much time with each other. On offense, things were much the same, but the differences were a little more glaring. The first unit played really well together to start the game. The ball...
