Boston Celtics dissect the Sacramento Kings with ball movement

Boston Celtics dissect the Sacramento Kings with ball movement

Photo by Adam Glanzman/ The Celtics dished 32 assists in one of their most collaborative offensive efforts of the season The Boston Celtics coasted to a rare blowout on Tuesday evening, routing the lowly Sacramento Kings to the tune of a 128-75 massacre at home in the TD Garden. The 53-point win went down as the second-biggest win in franchise history (behind only a memorable 56-point victory over the Chicago Bulls in 2018), and the dynamic duo of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown led the way with 66 points in just three quarters of play. But while Boston’s star duo stole...

Healthy Boston Celtics focused on building momentum

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via Josh Richardson and Jayson Tatum emphasized health and growth following their blowout win over Sacramento After Jayson Tatum’s 51-point night against the Washington Wizards, momentum was certainly on the Boston Celtics’ side entering Tuesday’s tilt vs. the Sacramento Kings. The outcome of that game, however, was one that nobody could have expected. Boston welcomed the Kings to TD Garden and absolutely obliterated them, winning by 53 points. The Celtics have won their last two games by a combined total of 82. The common factor...

Celtics trounce Kings in win of the season, 128-75

Photo by Adam Glanzman/ What in the world just happened? The Celtics looked like No playing around with this recap. Boston certainly didn’t play around, not for a second. They came out and dominated from the start, turning a Western Conference foe into pulp. The already-lowly Sacramento Kings were the Celtics’ victim tonight; Boston delivered a 128-75 beating, and there’s simply no use in dancing around it. That’s what happened, those are the facts, and yes, that feels so good to write with absolute certainty behind it. A few things happened tonight that either...

Marcus Smart is officially trade eligible, but should the Celtics deal him?

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via After signing a new long-term contract last summer, could Boston’s longest tenured player have already played his last game in green? Long-time Boston Celtics point guard is officially trade eligible today (January 25). Smart’s name has been thrown around in trade scuttlebutt for years, but with Boston’s struggles this season, those rumors have been amplified. The Celtics inked Smart to a four-year, $77 million extension this past summer. He was then subsequently named the team’s starting point guard by head coach Ime Udoka....

Evaluating the Celtics’ trade deadline options

Photo by John Tlumacki/The Boston Globe via Boston has two main options at the deadline - buy-in to the current roster, or sell and think about the future The NBA trade deadline is only a couple of weeks away. The Boston Celtics have won six of their last nine games, but it’s not as simple as that. The highs and lows have been absurd. Their wins have felt like the peak of the mountain. Jayson Tatum’s 51-point performance against the Washington Wizards was the Celtics climbing Mt. Everest. Their fourth-quarter performances against the Chicago Bulls and New Orleans...

The understated impact of Grant Williams

The understated impact of Grant Williams

Photo by Kathryn Riley/ Williams has quietly been building a versatile skill set, and it’s helping the Celtics tremendously. If we were to hold a Boston Celtics season awards ceremony tonight, Grant Williams would be the unequivocal winner of "Most Improved Player," not only because of his vastly improved three-point shot. Throughout the season, we've seen the seeds of leadership start to sprout around the talkative big-man, both vocally and in terms of his playstyle. Williams, who was often a scapegoat last season, has started to fulfill the role we originally...

Adam and Mike start out by discussing how difficult it is to be a fan of this Celtics team. More specifically, Adam is close to breaking up with this Celtics iteration. Luckily Mike has some sage relationship wisdom. Mike supports his advice by comparing some on the Celtics roster to other players around the league who have improved their standing.

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via The latest rumblings about the Boston Celtics willingness to make moves Steve Bulpett checks in from his new gig at Heavy.com to give us some updates on the Boston Celtics ahead of the NBA trade deadline. He reports that they have been “extremely active” and want to build around Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. At this stage, sources are indicating that first-year head of basketball operations Brad Stevens is at the very least looking to unload some salary cap burden (as he did in moving Juancho Hernangomez last week) and clear a...

Washburn: Celtics should look to buy, not sell at trade deadline

Photo by David Dow/NBAE via As the trade deadline approaches, what should the game plan be for the Celtics? Contenders or pretenders? Buy or sell? These are questions the Celtics need to answer heading into the upcoming NBA trade deadline, now only three weeks away. President Brad Stevens has already made one minor move, shipping Juancho Hernangomez to San Antonio in a three-team deal in exchange for Bol Bol, PJ Dozier, and some cap relief. The question is will the Celtics - who sit at 23-24, good for 9th in the East - do anything real to improve their team prior to...

Brainstorming Celtics trade ideas

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Come and make fun of my trade ideas for the Boston Celtics It is very easy make vague statements like “the Celtics need to make trades at the upcoming NBA trade deadline.” I do it all the time. It sounds decisive without actually providing any specific guidance. In fact, I’ll admit that I’ll sometimes avoid suggesting specific trade ideas because the moment you throw a couple names out, all context and disclaimers get tossed aside and everyone focuses on that idea and how terrible it is. It is very easy to shoot down other people’s...
