Celtics notebook: Green have come a long way since last visit to Quicken Loans Arena

CLEVELAND — The Celtics stepped onto the Quicken Loans Arena floor for the first time yesterday since that morose night, on Oct. 17, when Gordon Hayward’s season ended before it had a chance to begin.“I think about Gordon. That plays on my mind,” said Al Horford. “And then that being the beginning of this journey for our group, the ups and downs and everything we’ve been through. Yeah, it’s a lot of positive things in regards to the group. Once that happened we were able to regroup, and get playing the right way.”Few across the league envisioned that team playing in Game 3 of...

Rohrbach: Sky’s the Limit if Celtics Keep Group Intact Next Year & Beyond (podcast)

Rohrbach: Sky’s the Limit if Celtics Keep Group Intact Next Year & Beyond (podcast)

Rorback appeared on the Celtics Beat Podcast to discuss what the future may hold for the Celtics. It’s odd that the Celtics are two wins away from the NBA Finals yet there is still so attention being paid to next year. Just ‘wait til next year.’ It’s typically a loser’s refrain. Long suffering Red Sox fans know it all too well. Next year we’ll get ’em. You’ll see! But considering just what this team is accomplishing without it’s two best players (did you know they are playing without Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward?) one can’t help but occasionally drift off into fantasy...

Semi Ojeleye reflects on defensive mindset and guarding LeBron James

Every coach he’s had preached defense, and under Brad Stevens he’s received a chance to prioritize his passion in the most marquee matchups imaginable.

In the midst of deafening silence, he placed his arms around Aron Baynes and Shane Larkin, speaking up to lead Boston through prayer for their injured teammate. Soon after Brad Stevens pointed to Ojeleye. On opening night on TNT, he...
