Avery Bradley’s game takes a new twist

Avery Bradley’s game takes a new twist

Avery Bradley never has been an easy fit on offense.At 6-foot-2, he has a point guard’s body without the requisite ballhandling skills. Instead, he’s a shooting guard who can be as streaky as New England weather.And then comes a night like Monday in Phoenix, when his coach starts to wonder if a corner has been turned.Bradley’s two-way play rarely has been better with the Celtics. He set up his big 3-pointer with 3:13 left in the win against the Suns by first stripping the ball from Eric Bledsoe, a truly tough player to stop off the dribble.

Avery Bradley flashed his potential and now it's time to accelerate his development

Are we about to witness the next stage of Avery Bradley's development? Avery Bradley is currently riding one of the hottest scoring streaks of his career, but his high level shooting production is really nothing new, since he has been performing like an elite three-point shooter for the Boston Celtics going all the way back to late December. Bradley started putting the doubters to sleep on December 23 when he broke out of his slump by hitting 41.2 percent of his threes since then, which ranks 16th of 99 qualifying players. The 6-foot-2 shooting guard is simply giving us a glimpse behind the...

Boston Celtics survive late scare to beat Phoenix Suns 115-110

The Celtics let a 20 point lead slip away, but held on to get a nice win. The Celtics set the tone early with their defense tonight. Bradley and Smart each picked up a steal in the first few minutes. Marcus Smart came up with yet another diving steal that led to an assist. Avery Bradley was unstoppable in the first quarter. He scored 14 points on perfect shooting, and really carried the Celtics offense. Isaiah Thomas got off to a slow start shooting, but he did a much better job of finding his teammates in his early minutes. Phoenix was very aggressive in doubling him out of pick and rolls,...

Thomas, Bradley reunite

Thomas, Bradley reunite

LOS ANGELES — Isaiah Thomas left his first practice with the Celtics yesterday morning and immediately went on Twitter.“It’s crazy that two guys from the same neighborhood are in the NBA & on the same team!! #253 #HillTop #Tacoma,” was his message, an obvious reference to one of his oldest friends, Celtics guard Avery Bradley.

Lakers 118, Celtics 111: Boston rallies after Thomas tossed, but fizzles in OT

LOS ANGELES -- Isaiah Thomas sure knows how to make an entrance. And an exit. Thomas, acquired by the Boston Celtics at Thursday's trade deadline, scored 21 points on 6-of-13 shooting, but was ejected after protesting an offensive foul call in a four-point game with 5:03 remaining. The Celtics rallied from a 10-point deficit over the final 3:31 to force overtime on Avery Bradley's 3-pointer but couldn't maintain that momentum in the extra session before falling to the Los Angeles Lakers 118-111 at Staples Center.

Turner: 'You're going to hug me' for winner

BOSTON -- Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens knew by putting the ball in Evan Turner's hands late in Wednesday's game against the Atlanta Hawks, it probably wasn't coming out. So even though the play he drew up was the same one that led to an Avery Bradley game-winning jumper in Denver three weeks back, Stevens was comfortable knowing that this time around would likely end with Turner attacking the basket. Sure enough, in a late-clock situation, Turner looked away from a curling Bradley and elected to drive on DeMarre Carroll before hitting a floater in the lane with 0.

Celtics 108, Knicks 97: "Refs down with the tank"

Boston with a wire-to-wire win. Two terrible teams twirled their turrets, taking their tame tete-a-tete to truly terrifying tower tops. Thankfully the team that Tribeca's twilight tweens tickle their twangs to thought tumult told the tale. Thats that tank talk, toasters! Boston had it going right from the jump and played with some semblance of what should be labeled confidence the whole way through. The Knicks prodded a pair of idealized performances out of Jared Sullinger and Avery Bradley with casual close outs and feeble one-on-one defensive efforts. Add in a couple steady contributors...

Nothing like a game against the Knicks to bust out of a slump. Led by Avery Bradley and Jared Sullinger, who each played their best game in weeks, the Celtics snapped a three-game losing streak with a 108-97 victory in New York. Despite the last-place Knicks (10-39) making it a two-possession game midway through the fourth […]

Celtics 108, Knicks 97: Thumbs up for Bradley

Boston Celtics guard Avery Bradley nonchalantly mentioned after Sunday's game that he had a small fracture in the thumb on his non-shooting hand. Bradley shrugged off the severity of the injury and suggested it was unlikely to affect his availability moving forward. Wearing a protective sleeve over the thumb on Tuesday night, Bradley erased any concerns about how the injury might hinder him as he scored a team-high 26 points on super efficient 11-of-14 shooting while helping Boston to a 108-97 triumph over the New York Knicks.
