What does it mean to be a “true Celtic?” There’s the long-storied history of Championships that one must live up to. There’s the hardworking, lunch pail mentality. There’s a sense of community and focus on the team’s goals. Then there’s an us-against-the world chip on the shoulder with a bit of swagger mixed in. So many players have embodied that spirit over the years. From Bill Russell to Larry Bird to Paul Pierce to Marcus Smart. They connect with history, they connect with the city of Boston, and they connect with the fans of the Celtics around the globe. Celtics fans...

Boston blows out Phoenix to get back on track: 10 Takeaways from Celtics/Suns

Boston blows out Phoenix to get back on track: 10 Takeaways from Celtics/Suns

Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports The Celtics defense set the tone from the tip 1. The Celtics defense got after the Suns right from the jump. As expected, Devin Booker was the focal point for the defense, but not how you might have expected. Boston opened with Jayson Tatum guarding Booker, not Marcus Smart. In part, this was because Brad Stevens decided to trap Booker whenever possible to force the ball out of his hands. This allowed Smart to roam and switch off the ball. The strategy worked, as Booker only attempted 13 field goal attempts and was held below his average with “only” 20...

The Phoenix Suns’ loss to Celtics proves how much they need Rubio

Without Ricky Rubio, the Phoenix Suns are who everyone thought they were, which is not very good. On the bright side, with him they’re really good. Ricky Rubio was a game time decision for the Phoenix Suns against the Boston Celtics due to back soreness suffered after a rough night’s sleep. We’ve all been there.

Kemba Walker: ‘Defensively we stepped up’ against Phoenix Suns

Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports In another win, the Boston Celtics held one of the best offenses in the NBA in check. After having their 10-game winning streak snapped by the Sacramento Kings Sunday, the Boston Celtics had the right formula to get back into the win column just a little over 24 hours later. And for the C’s, it all started on the defensive end. The Celtics held the high-powered Phoenix Suns, which came into the matchup boasting the fourth best scoring offense in the NBA by averaging 117.6 points per game, to a season-low scoring output as the C’s stellar defensive...

Marcus Smart sprains right ankle vs. Suns

Photo by Christian Petersen/ The Celtics couldn’t get through Phoenix without suffering another injury. It’s been a reoccurring theme for the Boston Celtics this season and it happened again in the 99-85 win over the Phoenix Suns Monday night when another prominent member of the team got injured. With 9:12 to go in the fourth quarter, Marcus Smart suffered a right ankle while defending a baseline drive by Devin Booker. Smart clearly rolls his ankle while trying to stay with Booker and immediately falls to the floor. Smart hobbled off the court, but did not return. Celtics say it's...

Celtics brighten up their East-best record with a 99-85 win over the Suns

Photo by Christian Petersen/ Boston recovered from their loss against Sacramento with a strong bounce-back effort. The Boston Celtics traveled to Phoenix for the 3rd game of their West-coast road trip, and they’ll be flying out with a 99-85 win under their belt. They were led by Jayson Tatum’s 26 and 11. Devin Booker had 20 points for Phoenix. After a lackluster performance against the Kings last night, Jayson Tatum battled early foul trouble to emerge with a double-double. Notably, Tatum finished with 9 free-throw attempts. Kemba Walker joined the party with a moderate explosion in...

Photo by Barry Chin/The Boston Globe via The Celtics look to get back on track as they take on the Phoenix Suns. The Celtics continue their West Coast road trip with a stop in Phoenix to take on the Suns. If there is one thing the Celtics have learned so far on this trip, it is that every team, even the teams at the bottom of the standings are going to play their very best to try to knock off the team at the top. The Celtics will need to play their best to get a win and they certainly didn’t play their best against the Warriors and the Kings so far. The Celtics are 3-1 vs Western...

Even in a loss the Celtics are still showing signs of growth

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports While the Celtics NBA best 10-game winning streak came to an end, the strides they showed during the exciting run are here to stay. It can be hard, particularly in sports, to shed old labels. Barring a loud transformation, fans tend to immortalize you as you were when they first met you. It’s the reason Blake Griffin’s steady growth took so long to become a national topic. Once we saw him leap over a KIA, it was all we could see. The asphyxiation of diminutive labels isn’t a right exclusive to individual players. However, in a down season, teams’...
