Wingz: Hayward, Morris, Tatum come up big for Celtics in OT win over Raptors

Wingz: Hayward, Morris, Tatum come up big for Celtics in OT win over Raptors

One of Toronto’s biggest strengths is their depth on the perimeter with players like Kawhi Leonard and OG Anunoby. On Friday night, it was Boston’s wings that helped power the team to a win in the rematch. With just over eight minutes to go in the third quarter, Brad Stevens made a curious substitution. With the game tied at 61, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, and Gordon Hayward were pulled in favor of Marcus Smart, Terry Rozier, and Marcus Morris. Nick Nurse hadn’t made any changes to the Raptors lineup and it seemed like a premature substitution with the game in the...

Marcus Smart isn't about to bite his toungue

When it comes to delivering his feelings, Marcus Smart puts most businesses to shame. Same day service? Ha. You can have his reaction now. No waiting.The Celtics guard is just as assertive with his teammates off the floor as he is with opponents on it. And when the Celtics had carelessly dribbled this last road trip off their foot, Smart was the first to dive on the loose ball in the visitors’ dressing room Sunday night in Portland.He told his mates -- and, he insisted in a conversation with the Herald, himself -- the time for excuses had long since passed. It was time for the Celtics to...

Celtics’ slow starts could lead to Smart decision

After sluggish play plagued a 1-4 road trip, could it be time to start Marcus Smart? Only one player remains from those early years of the rebuild and it’s no surprise that it’s Marcus Smart. The Celtics don’t officially have a captain. It’s Brad Stevens’ diplomatic way of having all his players take ownership of the team, but if there’s a voice that gets heard louder in that locker room and on the floor, it’s Smart’s. Between Kyrie Irving’s grumblings about needing a veteran presence on the roster to remind this young team that the season is a marathon and not a sprint...

No adjustments to stop Jamal Murray and 9 other takeaways from Celtics/Nuggets

No adjustments to stop Jamal Murray and 9 other takeaways from Celtics/Nuggets

Murray manhandled Boston with precious little in the way of adjustments to stop him 1. One of the criticisms most often lobbed Brad Stevens way is that he prefers to let his team figure it out and play through runs by the opposing team. He’s generally pretty loathe to call a time-out to stop anything the other team is doing. Stevens uses his time-outs to correct things his team isn’t doing versus using them to slow a hot opponent. Last night this manifested itself when he did nothing to slow down Jamal Murray until very late in game, when he finally matched up Marcus Smart on him. By...
