Marcus Thornton 21 Points Full Highlights (12/7/2014)

Marcus Thornton walked into his coach’s office, and sat down for his one-on-one with Brad Stevens. “I know this is a little more formal than our usual interactions, but there are some things I really want to talk to you about, away from the curious ears of your teammates.” He began, looking stern. “Is this…

Tyler Zeller Career High 24 Points Full Highlights (12/5/2014)

As the Piedmont family was being shown into the chamber, the younger boy, Jackson, started to protest, his 7’1″ frame struggling mightily against the policeBots assigned to escort them. “No, no, I’m not going! I have constitutional rights that protect me from cruel and unusual punishment!” He shouted. His mother, Michelle, looked at him resignedly….

Kelly Olynyk 20 Points Full Highlights (12/3/2014)

Walking up to the dreary rows of storage cells that made up Kamloops Mega Storage, Kelly hesitated. Starcubism was supposed to be dead. By going here, he was just giving the guys false hope. He thought back to Ferguson’s words back at the pizza parlor: “Moonbeam said you’d be back eventually.” Moonbeam had always been…

Jeff Green 25 Points Full Highlights (12/2/2014)

I never thought I’d say this, but I kind of would like to hear Tommy Heinsohn commentate again. He may be a total homer and whiner, but his curmudgeonly attitude always has a certain charm. It’s like listening to your half-insane grandpa ramble about the Nazis. He was there, so I guess he’d know, and…

Jared Sullinger 23 Points Full Highlights (11/28/2014)

The “try to turn Jared Sullinger into a strech-four” experiment is not yet paying dividends for the Celtics. He continues to take lots of threes, and continues to not make a good percentage of them. Can’t blame his coaches for trying. Big men who can shoot threes are valuable; if Sullynyk could get consistent behind…

Jared Sullinger 23 Points Full Highlights (11/19/2014)

Some wise person once said, “you don’t know what you have until it’s gone.” That’s how I feel right now about Tommy Heinsohn. Sure, his dementia-induced rambling gets pretty annoying after the first twenty seconds, but there’s no other way to properly listen to a Celtics broadcast. Scalabrine is okay, but he doesn’t have that…

Brandon Bass 23 Points Full Highlights (11/19/2014)

There are a lot of odd stats in the NBA. I think that’s the whole reason they play the game; to accumulate numbers for analysis. One of the odder stats is the one for active career playoff free-throw percentage. Who do you think would be the leader? Maybe Steve Nash, yeah, he’s pretty good at…

Tyler Zeller 19 Points Full Highlights (11/17/2014)

The Piedmont family, eager for some excitement after weeks of deprivation training at the local desenz facility, were heading towards the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts. The young Piedmont boys were big basketball fans; at 7’1″ they were a starting point-guard tandem for their local high school team in the class of…

Jared Sullinger 19 Points Full Highlights (11/14/2014)

So the Celtics are 3-5 despite having the second-highest-scoring offense in the league. The cause is easily found: they have the second-most-porous defense in the league, negating their smoothly-run offense. Moral of the story: Celtics games are fun to watch because everybody scores a lot of points, and points are fun. Another reason to tune…

Kelly Olynyk 21 Points Full Highlights (11/14/2014)

Kelly’s mind spun. His Rick Wakeman posters, his most prized possessions, including the one signed by the key-master himself, gone. His extensive 400-count collection of vinyl, spanning everything from First Nation tribal music to post-metal to jazzwave, gone. All gone, given the same treatment as an old pizza box, taken away to some dump to…
