Trust the record

The Celtics have been the second best team in the Eastern Conference longer than any other team this season. Despite splitting the season series with the Wizards, Monday night’s win was a loud reminder that when it comes to Cavaliers challengers the Celts are top dogs. The Wizards and Celtics walked onto a court. Four buzzers sounded, each one coinciding with a Celts lead on the scoreboard. When the teams walked off the court; Brandon Jennings and Terry Rozier had technicals under their belt for a backcourt spat, the two tension-filled squads matched wins this season, and it was the...

Isaiah Thomas makes winning return to Celtics lineup from two-game absence

Isaiah Thomas makes winning return to Celtics lineup from two-game absence

On the list of trademark Isaiah Thomas plays, a put-back tip-in probably ranks somewhere near the bottom.Yet, when looking for his signature highlight in last night’s 110-102 win against the Washington Wizards at the Garden, that’s exactly what Thomas did in his first game back after missing two due to a bone bruise on his right knee.At the end of the third quarter, Marcus Smart drove to the hoop and had his shot hang and fall off the front rim, but Thomas swooped in and tipped the ball in as the buzzer sounded to extend the C’s lead to 92-75. Although the Wizards made it interesting in...

Renewed rivalry with Wizards brings best out of Celtics

Renewed rivalry with Wizards brings best out of Celtics

The Celtics ended their regular-season series with the Washington Wizards in a four-game split and all that’s left now is a wish-list item — for a playoff series between two teams not only with mutual dislike, but a knack from drawing some great basketball out of each other.The C’s beat the Wizards, 110-102, last night at the Garden while celebrating the return of Isaiah Thomas to the lineup after a two-game, knee-related absence. Thomas picked up in full flow, scoring 25 points to go along with four assists and four rebounds.Backcourt mate Avery Bradley seemed to benefit just as much...

Celtics, Wizards downplay budding rivalry

By all appearances, the Washington Wizards wore their normal attire for last night’s showdown with the Celtics at the Garden.The Wizards locker room felt a lot less morbid, unlike before the previous meeting between these teams on Jan. 24, a 123-108 Celtics loss. Then, of course, the Washington players arrived at the Verizon Center dressed in black, as Wizards point guard John Wall called the game a “funeral” for the Celtics.Such terminology is not the normal pregame chit-chat during the regular season. It does, however, lend credence to the thought that a rivalry is developing between...
