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…

Evan Turner 19 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (11/8/2014)

Doing his best not to get frustrated, Evan Turner whistled a tune while being stuck in barely-moving traffic. Highway congestion in Boston was notorious, and he would find himself randomly not moving for long stretches of time. Given new opportunity to observe his surroundings, he looked at the billboards which dotted the side of the…

Jeff Green 20 Points Full Highlights (11/5/2014)

After the release of the smash hit “Jeff Green Rap” in June, DownToBuck had been riding high. Cocaine, prostitutes, cars with fancy wheels, he had it all and more. The dope flow of such passages as: Drafted fifth overall seven years ago / He should be in his prime, you know / If your eyes…

Kelly Olynyk 18 Points Full Highlights (11/5/2014)

Kelly Olynyk knocked on the door of his parent’s house. It looked much the same as it did when he left, five years ago. The paint was a little chippier perhaps, the trees in the front yard a little less vibrant. The welcome mat, in all its threadbare glory, had, as ever, the opposite of…

Avery Bradley Career High 32 Points Full Highlights (11/3/2014)

The Celtics just almost pulled off a huge comeback win over the Mavericks, having a chance to tie it late in the 4th after being down by 31 points earlier in the game. Avery Bradley may have choked on the free throws, but you can’t really blame him. He was worn out after putting the…
