It was a very good year for the Boston Celtics

It was a very good year for the Boston Celtics

No banner hung, but don’t hang your head. There will be no banner hung for this season but there’s no need to hang our heads either. The Boston Celtics won 53 games, gained the top seed in the East, advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals, and lost to the defending champs. That’s a really good season in itself. Add to that the fact that we saw Isaiah Thomas have one of the best offensive seasons by any Celtics player ever. Brad Stevens cemented his status as one of the best coaches in the game. Al Horford quietly proved that he’s worth every penny of the contract he signed. Avery...

Celtics vs. Cavs GameThread: Let’s go Celtics!

The Celtics have another chance to wear the Cavs out in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals tonight. Let’s not beat around the bush: I am firmly #TeamCeltics tonight. And I can’t imagine why any Warriors fan wouldn’t be rooting for the Boston Celtics to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals tonight: even if the Cavs eventually win, I wouldn’t mind them having being forced to play an extra game. Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas will be in the building tonight so let’s hope he delivers an inspiring speech or something to get his guys fired up for a...

Celtics notebook: Hip injury epidemic spreads to Jaylen Brown

The Celtics will carry even a bit more of a limp into Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals tonight against Cleveland.Jaylen Brown, who has played well in his first postseason and has logged his share of time guarding LeBron James, was listed as questionable on a Celtics injury report yesterday due to a right hip pointer.It’s unclear when the rookie suffered the injury, but hip trouble seems to be a theme on this team. Isaiah Thomas is out for the rest of the playoffs with a torn labrum in his right hip, and is in the process of meeting with various specialists to decide on possible...

Bulpett: Cavs know how hard Brad Stevens is making it on them

We should begin by dispensing with the foolish notion that the Celtics are a better team without Isaiah Thomas. They’re not better.But they are different, and that counts for something as they try to stave off elimination from the Eastern Conference finals in Game 5 tonight.The Celts were hoping to throw some interesting wrinkles at the unquestionably superior Cavaliers in this series; just nothing as drastic as getting your best player sidelined with a hip injury that may require surgery.The Cavs came into the set figuring out ways to keep Thomas to a dull roar. But two games into the...

The future of Isaiah Thomas promises to hang over every move the Celtics make

Celtic Pride is back

Celtic Pride is back

Even in a loss in Game 4, it’s become abundantly clear that the Celtics are back. For a second, put on hold your excitement over winning the #1 pick in the draft lottery, the distant mirage of filling cap space with a max player, this ridiculous debate over whether the Celtics are better without Isaiah Thomas, and the mental gymnastics of all the moves and options Danny Ainge could make this summer. That’s all fine and dandy and in due time, conversations worth having, but right now, this is a special moment. It may not seem like that with the Boston Celtics on the verge of being...
