Daniel Theis shines in blowout win vs. Bulls

Daniel Theis shines in blowout win vs. Bulls

The second-year big gave the Celtics a vintage Horford-like performance when they needed it most. After a blowout win against the Knicks, Kyrie Irving, surrounded by the media, proclaimed that the Celtics should have fun kicking people’s (butts). Fast-forward to Saturday night, and the message seemed to resonate with his teammates. The Bulls were the latest target, falling victim to a 56 point-beatdown in one of the most thorough wire-to-wire performances of the season. Even up 30, the team was flying around on the defensive end, swinging the ball on offense and in a game that honestly...

Jaylen Brown is just playing basketball

After a slow start and a brief absence due to a back injury, Jaylen Brown is keeping his head on his shoulders. Against the Knicks, it showed. On a team as talented as these Celtics, in a season that has started this unusually slowly, you hit a point where the “[Player X] is figuring things out” articles start to write themselves. Just last week, after the Celtics’ victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, I was telling you how Gordon Hayward started to find himself in the wake of his own slow start, attacking the basket and playing with the aggression Kyrie Irving wanted to see from him....

Injury update: Aron Baynes is doubtful, Kyrie Irving is fine

Injury update: Aron Baynes is doubtful, Kyrie Irving is fine

Could this mean more minutes for Timelord? The Boston Celtics released their injury report this afternoon and Kyrie Irving was not listed, which means his shoulder is not going to prevent him from being active for the next game. That seems to back up his comments following the game that he’ll be “fine.” Aron Baynes, however, did appear on the report as “doubtful” which is actually a surprisingly positive status considering how bad his sprained ankle looked at the time. Of course, he’s a tough Australian and nothing would surprise me (or Brad Stevens). If Baynes does need to miss...

Kyrie Irving wants previous opponents to “keep that same energy”

Irving spoke about the Celtics big win over the New York Knicks on Thursday night. BOSTON - After the Boston Celtics fell to .500 just two weeks ago, the murmurs quickly became loud chatter. Were the Celtics in legitimate trouble? What was happening in that Boston locker room? The wonderment was coming from the fans, but according to Kyrie Irving, it was also coming from opposing teams. Now, the Celtics point guard says they “owe” some of those opponents, and they’re having fun doing it. “You know, I was thinking about it since we lost to them (the Knicks), a few teams that we...

Celtics record season-high 32 assists against Knicks

After a wire-to-wire blowout of the Knicks, Kyrie Irving doubled down on his recent comments about the Celtics not having fun on the court and playing for themselves as individuals rather than the betterment of the team: “Everybody feels like they have an ego in this, and all in all, we just want the best for one another. I think at this point, we’re just playing with a sense of effort where now it’s not so much about who’s playing, who has more talent. Now it’s like okay, who is going to give that effort every single time down, and who’s going to demand it from one another and...

Celtics want to wash the memory of pre-Thanksgiving out of their heads. As a fan, I was really hoping to go into Thanksgiving break with an easy get-right win over the New York Knicks. Then the Celtics ended up playing like turkeys. The team remembers that as well. So tonight, there’s a little extra motivation. via Steve Bulpett “I think that our identity is definitely forming a lot better than when we were playing against the Knicks that day, just in terms of our energy, our focus, our lineup, as well,” said Kyrie Irving. “And it’s just going out there and competing — and...
