Celtics' Kelly Olynyk to start Game 4, Amir Johnson likely out

Celtics coach Brad Stevens said center/forward Kelly Olynyk will start Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals Tuesday night against the Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena. Center Amir Johnson is not likely to play, Stevens said, due to a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder. It will mark Olynyk's first start for the Celtics in their 17 playoff games. He's averaging 8.9 points and three rebounds in 18.9 minutes off the bench. He had the biggest performance of his four-year career in Game 7 vs. the Washington Wizards with 26 points, five rebounds and four assists in 28 minutes. In that...

Watch Celtics Vs. Cavs Game 4 Live Stream: How To Watch Online Free, TV Time, Channel & Odds

Basketball fans are ready to watch Celtics vs. Cavs Game 4 on television or live stream online Tuesday night to see if Boston can pull off another improbable win. The third game of the Eastern Conference Finals series required a strong effort from Isaiah Thomas’ supporting cast, as the All-Star guard is out for the rest of the postseason with a hip injury. However, Marcus Smart, Avery Bradley, and the rest of the Celtics’ players were able to weather a 21-point deficit and ultimately come back in the second half. Bradley’s three-point attempt got the lucky bounce and left the Celtics...

Are the Celtics better without Isaiah Thomas?

Are the Celtics better without Isaiah Thomas?

After getting creamed twice at home with a less than 100% Isaiah Thomas, the Celtics took Game 3 in Cleveland. Let's put this one to rest right now. The Celtics aren't "better without Isaiah Thomas," right? Keith Smith: No. The defense is better, but the offense is worse than the defense is better, if that makes sense. Marcus Smart played the game of his life in Game 3, including hitting seven triples. To expect to ever see that again is a stretch. And the team had to execute at an extremely high level, including hitting shot after shot down the stretch. They need a guy who can create...

Boston Grit: Respect for the Celtics

Boston Grit N Grind? The Celtics pulled off a very gritty, Memphis-esque win Sunday night against the Cavs. Sunday night, the Boston Celtics pulled off a historic NBA Playoffs upset. They went into Cleveland and took down the Cavs minus their leading point scorer and biggest star, Isaiah Thomas. The Celtics as 16.5-point underdogs pulled off the largest postseason upset in the last 20 seasons. After their embarrassing loss in Game Two, many people had written them off to be swept in the series. The Celtics came into this Game Three with nothing to play for and could have just rolled over...

Jonas Jerebko a surprise hero in Celtics’ Game 3 stunner

Jonas Jerebko entered Game 3 with the Celtics down 21 points and served as a catalyst in Boston’s big upset. It was just another example of the Celtics’ bench being always ready to answer Brad Stevens’ call to action. Game 3 wasn’t void of dramatic storylines. It was going to be the Kevin Love game at first, then it turned into the Marcus Smart game then the Avery Bradley game-winner game, but let’s not forget the subplot of Jonas Jerebko. The story of the first half of Celtics-Cavs was reminiscent of the two forgettable games in Boston that preceded it. Cleveland seemed to be...
