Celtics Notes: Marcus Thornton Stays Hot; Tayshaun Prince Adjusts To Green

This embed is invalid" /> BOSTON — The second half of Friday night’s game at TD Garden featured some of the best defense the Celtics have played all season. Unfortunately for them, the first half featured some of the worst.

Julius Erving vs Larry Bird ‘American Primitive’ Illustration

Artist John Henry Gloyne perfectly captures the famous fight between Julius Erving and Larry Bird in 1984, during the heated Philadelphia 76ers vs Boston Celtics days. This moment turned into a brawl and cost both legends $7,500 in fines. Of the event, Erving later said in his autobiography. “I don’t hate Larry. I never hated Larry. I hated Boston. I hated the Celtics. Another...

Marcus Smart goes lobster fishing on 'NBA Inside Stuff' -- remember 'NBA Inside Stuff'?

It's been well over 20 years since I last saw NBA Inside Stuff.  I used to watch it every Saturday morning, right after Saved by the Bell I believe.Apparently it's still on TV, and if you happen to catch this week's episode you can see Marcus Smart go lobster fishing in Boston Harbor (clearly filmed last summer).On this week's #InsideStuff, @Celtics Rook @smart_MS3 learns how to...

Marcus Smart continues hot streak from deep

Through Dec. 31, Marcus Smart's 3-point shooting was making the draft evaluators that questioned his stroke look pretty smart. The rookie shot just 29.5 percent from deep in his two years at Oklahoma State, and while he was expected to improve, seeing his percentage shoot up so quickly has been a pleasant surprise. Since Dec. 1, Marcus Smart is 35 for 83 from downtown (42.2%). Since...

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “Listen, the guys prepare to win and they know they’re not one of the elite teams in the league, and yet our guys believe that they can win any night,” Ainge said before the game. “Our coaches prepare...

Why Starting Brandon Bass over Tyler Zeller Has Worked Out

When Brad Stevens announced that Brandon Bass would be starting over Tyler Zeller before the Blazers game, I was surprised. Sure, the starting five of Turner, Bradley, Crowder, Sullinger and Zeller had struggled, but would replacing Zeller with Bass fix that? Does it make sense to bench a 25-year-old center who has been steadily improving for a 29-year-old power forward who may not...

Boston Celtics: The Big Boston Rotation Problem

  (Source: Al Bello/Getty Images North America) By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/Hoopstuff.. The Boston Celtics have made 28 trades this season and are re-building.

Larry Bird scouting report compiled by the Knicks hits the Internet—and it is awesome

It’s been over two decades since Larry Bird retired from the NBA, and basketball fans and analysts now know just how elite he was. He was one of the last people on earth any opposing team would want to leave open, and was one of the most clutch players in NBA history. Midway through Bird’s career, he had already won a championship (1981). But opposing teams still weren’t aware...

Celtics’ Pressey has unique way to get through screens

Sometimes you got to think out of the box and that’s just what Boston’s Phil Pressey did against the Nuggets. Seeing a screen coming his way, instead of running around it, maybe slicing between the defender, Pressey goes all out and fights through the screen. Like literally through the screen. As in underneath the defender’s legs. No joke! Brilliant Phil! I guess being short...
