Celtics to host Wizards in play-in tournament with #7 seed on the line

Staff Photo By Stuart Cahill/MediaNews Group/Boston Herald via Jayson Tatum vs. Bradley Beal. After the Washington Wizards overcame a 16-point deficit at home against the Charlotte Hornets, the Celtics now know they’ll face the eighth-seeded Wiz in the play-in tournament. Over the last fifteen games, Boston and Washington have been a tale of two cities. The Wizards went 10-5 to close out the season and have stormed back after starting off the year 3-12. Their resurgence has been unexpectedly fueled by former MVP Russell Westbrook who has again averaged a...

The kids get some shine in a blowout win: 10 Takeaways from Celtics-Timberwolves

Photo by David Sherman/NBAE via Jayson Tatum and Evan Fournier did their thing, but Boston’s bench stepped up in the victory 1. Both Jayson Tatum and Evan Fournier played vs the Timberwolves on Saturday afternoon, despite several other key Celtics sitting out. Brad Stevens said that both players wanted to play, which was a point that both Tatum and Fournier backed up. They both said they wanted to find a rhythm and get some more on-court time together. Neither played extended minutes, but both played well. Stevens said he put them back in briefly in the fourth...

The Celtics lose yet another basketball game; fall to the Cavs 102-94

The Celtics lose yet another basketball game; fall to the Cavs 102-94

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports I’m tired. This game had it all – missed layups, double-digit deficit against inferior competition on a double-digit losing streak, and a red carpet to the rim on defense for opponents to casually stride down at their leisure. To make all of that worse, Jayson Tatum and Payton Pritchard (15 points) weren’t enough to propel the Boston Celtics over the Cleveland Cavaliers with a trend-continuing 102-94 loss. Most of this game was mind-numbingly and unbearably bad, so I’m going to give this game the recap it deserves. with ease ...

Evan Fournier’s off ball impact makes him a perfect fit in Celtics offense

Evan Fournier’s off ball impact makes him a perfect fit in Celtics offense

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports Evan Fournier doesn’t create shots for himself with the ball like the Jays do. Instead, he creates opportunities off the ball to make their lives easier. Evan Fournier is the perfect fit next to Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown on offense, as well as a great target for the team’s other playmakers. Fournier can score from anywhere and in bursts without demanding the ball as much as Boston’s core players, which is the exact type of piece they needed. Making a move in the middle of such a weird season has been a little awkward, so we kind...

The “instant chemistry” between Evan Fournier and Kemba Walker

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via For most of the season, Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum have propelled the Celtics, but the veteran duo of Evan Fournier and Kemba Walker could be what really pushes them deep into the playoffs. “Basketball is basketball.” That was Evan Fournier’s assessment of the bubbling chemistry that he and Kemba Walker (and the rest of the team) have started developing with the postseason just around the corner. On Wednesday night, Fournier scored an efficient 18 points on 14 shots against the Magic, his former team. Kemba Walker lead Boston...

Kemba Walker attempts to spark playoff consistency with big night

Mike Watters-USA TODAY Sports Against a beaten down Orlando Magic squad, Kemba Walker tries to get into a offensive rhythm heading into the playoffs. Most of this season for the Boston Celtics, it has been either Jayson Tatum or Jaylen Brown leading the team while Brad Stevens searches for some type of help heading into the playoffs. The entire roster will need to put in a full effort, but it starts with the likes of Kemba Walker stepping up and contributing on the offensive effort. Wednesday night against the Orlando Magic, Kemba Walker did just that. He scored 32...
