Brown, Tatum play to offensive strengths in win vs. Bulls

Brown, Tatum play to offensive strengths in win vs. Bulls

After hearing all pre-season about Boston’s offensive versatility, the Celtics have started to find their spots on the floor. There were some offensive staples that Brad Stevens knew he could count on. The Kyrie Irving-Al Horford pick-and-roll. The Celtics’ perimeter shooting eventually finding its level. Gordon Hayward’s all-around talent. And of course, Aron Baynes being a three-point marksman. The versatility of the Celtics starting lineup was supposed to be their main strength; anybody could be a playmaker, anybody could be a finisher. However, that versatility has largely...

Struggling Celtics reflect on slump

Subtitle: Hope to reverse fortunesTimes like this lead to a team-wide exercise in navel-gazing. And the Celtics, in the wake of a 1-4 road trip, might need their own maharishi before a solution is found.Kyrie Irving sees an emotional need for someone more experienced than himself, or Al Horford, or Aron Baynes, maybe even Marcus Morris, to calm down the anxieties of an otherwise young team in early crisis, the most recent lump a 100-94 loss in Portland on Sunday.“Looking at this locker room, me being in my eighth year and being a veteran as well as Al and Baynes, right now I think it would...

Marcus Morris and Kyrie Irving team up for the tie and 8 other takeaways from Celtics/Suns

Kyrie Irving and Jaylen Brown keyed the comeback in Boston’s wild win in the desert 1. The Celtics got off to a nice enough start. Solid ball movement on the game’s opening play led to Kyrie Irving knocking down a wide open three-pointer as Boston took a 3-0 lead. It would be nearly seven minutes before Aron Baynes tipped in a missed layup to get the team’s fifth point. Brad Stevens never stresses about his offense, as long as they are moving the ball and getting good looks. This nearly seven-minute scoreless stretch featured the Celtics missing twelve straight shots, of which seven...

From Australia to Lithuania to Boston: How Aron Baynes went from slam dunk champion to the Celtics’ rim protector

From Australia to Lithuania to Boston: How Aron Baynes went from slam dunk champion to the Celtics’ rim protector

Yes, Aron Baynes won a Lithuanian dunk contest in 2010. Hear what the Celtics center and World Wide Wob had to say about the victory. What if I told you that in 2010, Boston Celtics center Aron Baynes won a slam dunk contest in Lithuania? Yes, the same Baynes who has been the victim of countless posters himself. The same Baynes who prides himself on defense and rim protection. The same Baynes who has an NBA Graveyard named after him on NBA Twitter. I’m here to tell you that 8 years ago, the LKL’s best dunker was a 6-10 Australian center. The LKL is Lithuania’s top professional...

Celtics pick up Yabusele’s contract for next season

Celtics pick up Yabusele’s contract for next season

The Celtics, as expected, picked up the third-year options on the contracts of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown Wednesday – decisions about as automatic as it gets for two young players with such dynamic futures.But in something of a surprise, because his $3,117,240 salary would be doubled under luxury tax penalties, was the team’s decision to lock in Guerschon Yabusele’s contract for next season. But as evidenced by Brad Stevens’ decision to turn to the young power forward when plugging in holes left by recent injuries to Aron Baynes and Daniel Theis, the team sees something in...

One of those things, it’s alright. Made me...

Kyrie Irving on new Celtics role: “be cool”

Kyrie Irving on new Celtics role: “be cool”

The worst statistical game Kyrie Irving ever had as a Celtic was back in November 2017 of last season. It was in the middle of the 16-game winning streak when Irving got inadvertently hit by an Aron Baynes’ elbow less than two minutes into a game against the Hornets. He’d finish with zeroes across the box score vs. Charlotte and would play the next two weeks with a mask. A year later, Irving had his second worst game in green, logging 23 minutes, hitting just one of his five shot attempts, pulling down seven rebounds, and dishing out five assists in a wire-to-wire blowout of the...

The Celtics look like the Celtics again and 8 other takeaways from Boston vs. Detroit

Celtics dominate in wire-to-wire victory 1. The Boston Celtics looked like the Boston Celtics again. The defense was excellent. The offense was efficient and versatile. For the first time this year, we saw the Celtics look like the team we expected. This was easily the most complete effort of the young season. 2. With Aron Baynes sidelined for the game with a sore hamstring, the Celtics biggest concern was rebounding, especially with Andre Drummond on the other side. But Boston got it together as a team. The bigs were hyper-focused on keeping a body on Drummond and Blake Griffin...

DETROIT — Oh, so this is what all those prognosticators were talking about when they predicted beastly things from the Celtics.The second-half blitz in Oklahoma City Thursday was apparently not some smoke and mirrors production. The C’s came in here Saturday night and put a beatdown on a Piston crew that had won its first four games and figured to hurt the Aron Baynes-less Shamrocks inside.Instead, the Celtics swarmed the Pistons on the way to a 109-89 victory.The positive signs, both large and small, were everywhere.
