Celtics Sim: D’Angelo Russell unloads for 42 in 126-122 Timberwolves win

Photo by David Sherman/NBAE via Minnesota scores its first win in 15 years at the Garden as the Celtics’ Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart-led comeback falls short. Boston’s win streak ends at five before the Heat visit on Wednesday. Kevin Garnett was likely booed by somebody in TD Garden the last time the Timberwolves entered Boston and won a game. The chances of that 15 years later are slim as No. 5 prepares to hit the rafters, as was a TWolves victory entering with 50 losses. Minnesota, with the return of Karl-Anthony Towns, has what they hope is the core to return to their...

Read and React: Daniel Theis became indispensable this year

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports Quietly Daniel Theis has become a key part of the Celtics winning. We don’t appreciate Daniel Theis as much as we should. So much went right this year. So many players made huge strides forward this year. From the obvious (Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown) to the more subtle (Marcus Smart, Brad Wannamaker), to the long awaited (Gordon Hayward). The center position was supposed to be our big weak spot, and maybe it still is, but only in relative worth to the other spots in the rotation. When you have 4 high level starters that can score, pass, and defend, you...

Tales from CelticsBlog Slack: Marcus Smart-Kemba Walker debate

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via With the staff safely quarantined all across the world, our Slack channel has been a good place for our writers to kick around a few ideas. Marcus Smart may not be an All-Star, but he’s proven to be a starting caliber point guard. He’s one of the league’s best defenders and Brad Stevens can’t keep him off the floor in crunch time. Could Kemba Walker be dealt for a big man during the off-season? Adam Taylor: I’ve been a believer that the Celtics would be better served with a pass first PG than another scoring guard such as Kemba for a while...
