Charlotte Hornets fall apart and lose to Boston Celtics, 98-106

The Hornets turnovers, and defensive collapse led to a horrible loss to the Celtics. The Charlotte Hornets blew away a game they should have won,  and they have nobody to blame but themselves. The game was sloppy from start to finish, but things got really bad late in the third quarter when the defense...

Celtics give and take

Celtics give and take

The prize is of questionable value and maybe a little hard to truly decipher.The Celtics and Hornets are in the race for the Eastern Conference playoffs, but is the winner a team that gets the seventh or eighth seed and first-round doom or the one that gets a ticket to the NBA draft lottery?So the Celts were victorious over Charlotte last night. Or were they?Isaiah Thomas had 21 of his 28 points in the second half as the C’s gave the game away and took it back, 106-98.

Celtics Notebook: League gets technical

Celtics Notebook: League gets technical

The Celtics are 3-2 since Isaiah Thomas joined the team, and maybe they should be 4-1.The NBA rescinded Thomas’ second technical foul from the fourth quarter of last Sunday’s overtime loss to the Lakers, saving his wallet but not the game’s outcome.The Celts were down four in Los Angeles with a little more than five minutes left in regulation when Thomas was called for an offensive foul. He slammed the ball to the court, earning the first tech. The second came when he flipped the ball in referee Tony Brothers’ direction.

Roster overhaul hasn't changed C's goals

BOSTON -- Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens was drawing up a play earlier this week when he stopped briefly during the timeout to examine the faces seated in front of him. "I write the initials on the board -- I don’t do like 1 through 5 [positional shorthand] when I draw up the play," explained Stevens. "We’re 22 people in and these initials -- I gotta clear my mind and make sure I get the initials right on the board." The Celtics have already tied a team record set in 1949 by utilizing 22 different players during the 2014-15 campaign and they've had a preposterous 40 total bodies on...

Notes: Olynyk (ankle) nears return

BOSTON -- Boston Celtics second-year big man Kelly Olynyk is expected to participate in the team's offday workout Saturday and could be back on the court as early as Sunday night's visit from the Golden State Warriors. Olynyk missed his 16th consecutive game during Friday's 106-98 win over the Charlotte Hornets, but coach Brad Stevens pegged him questionable for Sunday's game. "Kelly did a little bit more [Thursday]. He’s going to be able to hopefully practice [Saturday] then we’ll go from there," said Stevens.

Celtics 106, Hornets 98: Thomas, Jerebko fuel Boston's comeback

BOSTON -- Go ahead and book that (refundable) hotel room in Atlanta (or Cleveland?) starting on April 17. The Boston Celtics rallied from 16 down over the final 18 minutes of play, sparked by a small-ball lineup bookended by newcomers Isaiah Thomas and Jonas Jerebko, and emerged with a 106-98 triumph over the Charlotte Hornets on Friday night at a rocking TD Garden. With the win, Boston pulls even with the Hornets and makes things just a little bit more interesting in the race for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.

Tech rescinded for Isaiah Thomas

BOSTON -- The NBA rescinded one of the two technical fouls that led to Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas' ejection in his debut against the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday. Referee Tony Brothers tagged Thomas with consecutive technical fouls leading to his disqualification in the fourth quarter of Boston's overtime loss. Thomas missed the final 10 minutes of play. "I'm glad [the NBA rescinded] that," said Thomas. He was asked if that came a bit too late for his liking.

Rajon Rondo-Rick Carlisle clash inevitable

Rajon Rondo-Rick Carlisle clash inevitable

Confrontations between basketball coaches and players date back roughly to some five minutes after the last nail was hammered into the first peach basket.But, without ESPN, it went generally unnoticed.Such, however, was not the case when Dallas mentor Rick Carlisle called a timeout Tuesday night and began yelling at Rajon Rondo. Rondo yelled back (shocker, eh?), and the high-decibel debate reportedly continued when the parties repaired to the dressing room following the game, causing the point guard to be suspended for the next night’s festivities in Atlanta.

Second honeymoon for Crowder

BOSTON -- At the start of the February, it felt like the honeymoon was over. Jae Crowder, acquired in mid-December as part of the deal that sent Rajon Rondo to the Dallas Mavericks, had raised eyebrows early in his Boston tenure and, when Jeff Green was dealt away to Memphis in early January, Crowder elevated to starting small forward. But his production waned and, in a 10-game span beginning on Jan. 14, Crowder was a team-worse minus-71 in plus/minus and his advanced numbers were an absolute eyesore (team-worst minus-16.
