How Celtics built a “crazy” offense that’s statistically the greatest ever

How Celtics built a “crazy” offense that’s statistically the greatest ever

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via The Celtics offense is the most prolific in NBA history to start this year, and they don’t require play calls. BOSTON — Joe Mazzulla called the Celtics to the huddle trailing by two points with seven seconds to play against the Cavaliers. He called on Grant Williams to in-bound, Al Horford to cut high and Jaylen Brown low while Williams decided between hitting Marcus Smart above the three-point line to handoff to Jayson Tatum racing downhill, or Tatum directly. “Here we go. Win the game,” Mazzulla said. Williams chose Smart...

Jaylen Brown (neck) questionable against Miami

Photo by Maddie Malhotra/ If he’s out, that would be his second game in a row due to this neck injury. The Boston Celtics are riding the wave of victory heading into two home games in a row against the Miami Heat. While the last two opponents have been underwhelming to the point of being able to rest one of the Jays in each contest, the Heat may present more of a challenge depending on their own injury report. On that note, Jaylen Brown (neck) is listed as questionable for the first leg of this home series against the Heat. #NEBHInjuryReport for tomorrow vs....

Flying high: 10 Takeaways from Celtics-Hornets

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports Boston won their fourth straight to improve to 4-0 on the six-game homestand 1. Make no mistake, the Charlotte Hornets are a bad team. That being said, the Boston Celtics completely demolished them. This game was never close. On a night where Boston was without Jaylen Brown and Al Horford for maintenance/rest days and on a back-to-back, the only question was how many points the Celtics were going put on the board and how much they would win by. Boston is now within a hair of shooting 50% from the field (49.6%) and 40% on...

Blake Griffin embracing his Celtics role

Blake Griffin embracing his Celtics role

Photo by Adam Glanzman/ Blake Griffin signed with the Celtics to compete for a role he largely hasn’t earned, but he’s played a large one off the floor. For that, Joe Mazzulla is providing him opportunities. BOSTON — Noah Vonleh started the Celtics’ third game of the season in Orlando, the first back-to-back Al Horford sat out of in what’s become routine maintenance for the veteran. Vonleh fouled four times in 14 minutes, so Joe Mazzulla searched for more answers from his big man depth, electing to play Luke Kornet in his first ill-fated minutes after a...

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via The Celtics point guard has earned the trust of his coach and the team is having fun. BOSTON – The Boston Celtics welcomed the Charlotte Hornets to town on Monday night before swiftly pushing them out the exit via a 140-105 blowout.

Malcolm Brogdon Calls Playing With Celtics ‘Treat For Any NBA Player’

The Celtics have been dominant to start the season, and it’s thanks to a complete team effort. After Monday, Boston leads the league in points per game (121.3), offensive rating (120.9), net rating (9.0) and true shooting (63%).

The result was far from a let-down game, as the Celtics piled up 45 points in a remarkable first quarter, and cruised to a comfortable win over the Hornets, 140-105.

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via Think of the Hornets as a KIA Optima. Forget that the Celtics just finished the first half making 14-of-25 from behind the arc en route to a 78-55 lead over the visiting Hornets. Alert! Alert! Alert! Blake Griffin just took off. It was exactly on the level of 2011 NBA Slam Dunk Contest, but hey, more than a decade later, it was nice to see the 12-year veteran and overall good dude get up one more time.

Why Isaiah Thomas’ Brief But Magical Celtics Run Was Unforgettable

It’s a shame the brief Isaiah Thomas era with the Boston Celtics ended the way it did. Because for a span of two-plus seasons, Green Teamers couldn’t help but be entranced by the self-proclaimed “King of the Fourth.” The 5-foot-9, 185-pound point guard, who so frequently drove into the paint and finished at the rim […] The post Why Isaiah Thomas’ Brief But Magical Celtics Run Was Unforgettable appeared first on NESN.com.

BOSTON – The Boston Celtics are on night two of a back-to-back, set to take on the Charlotte Hornets for the first time this season. However, both teams are heading into the night with lengthy injury reports. Robert Williams and Danilo Gallinari remain out, while Al Horford and Jaylen Brown have both been added to the list.

Taylor’s Tickets to Triumph: Celtics - Hornets

After all, LaMelo Ball and Gordon Hayward are both missing from the Hornets rotation, while Terry Rozier is recovering from sickness. However, Boston isn’t at full strength either, as Al Horford is sitting out the contest while Jaylen Brown appears to be a game-time decision. Regardless of who participates in the game, we’re still going to witness a hyper-efficient Celtics...
