What Brad Stevens Told Celtics After Third-Straight Loss Vs. Hawks

The Boston Celtics look like a team who just want to get to the NBA All-Star break. Maybe they need to get some rest. Or they want to get vocal leader Marcus Smart back on the floor.

Injuries remain prevalent as Marcus Smart isn’t expected back until after the All-Star break. Though he finished with 21 points and was a team-high plus-9 against Dallas, Boston still isn’t exactly sure which version of Kemba Walker to expect on a night-to-night...

Dončić heroics propell Dallas Mavericks to 110-107 win over Boston Celtics

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports Boston scrapped late in Dallas, but it wasn’t enough, C’s drop to 16-15 on the season.

Boston gave up a 24-point lead and would look to rebound on the road without Marcus Smart, expected back with the team after the All-Star Break. The Mavericks would be spearheaded by the high usage and crafty Luka Doncic who is currently 3rd in...

Not good enough: One Takeaway from Celtics/Pistons

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports Boston continues to hover just above .500 after losing another winnable game 1. Jaylen Brown heaved a deep, long sigh and said “We just gotta be better.” That alone said it all. Brown and Jayson Tatum showed up against the Detroit Pistons. They combined for 60 points.
