NBA Rumors: Proposed Blockbuster Would Send John Wall To Celtics For Kemba Walker, Tristan Thompson & Draft Picks

The 2021 trade deadline may have passed with veteran point guard John Wall still an official member of the Houston Rockets but when the 2020-21 NBA season is officially over, they are highly expected to find him a new home. With the team heading into an inevitable rebuild, keeping Wall no longer makes sense for the Rockets. With his health issues and lucrative contract, finding a trade partner for Wall would undeniably be a tough task for Rockets general manager Rafael Stone.Celtics Could Take A Chance On John WallHowever, if they wouldn't demand much in return for the veteran point guard,...

Celtics come back to beat Nuggets behind 31-8 fourth quarter

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Kemba Walker turned a 14-point deficit around in three minutes into the fourth and kept pushing the game into a blowout. Grant Williams stepped onto the Nikola Jokic assignment midway through the fourth quarter as the Nuggets dominated Jokic’s minutes with back line cutting, multiple pick-and-roll combinations and catch-and-shoot looks. When Jokic saw Grant, though, he went to attack him straight-on in what Brad Stevens considered the adjustment that’s made Jokic the MVP frontrunner this season. Williams...

All around effort leads to blowout win: 10 Takeaways from Celtics-Hornets

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via Boston is back to .500 again after a runaway victory over Charlotte 1. The Celtics got off to a slow start. The offense took a while to find their range, with several missed three-pointers early. The defense got off to a similarly slow start. The Hornets were playing inside-outside basketball, much of it drawn by finding Kemba Walker matched against big men. Because Boston switches everything, Walker often finds himself matched up against bigger players. Usually, the Celtics are pretty good about getting Walker scrambled out of these...

Expectations, explanations, and excuses: what to make of the Celtics’ disappointing season

Expectations, explanations, and excuses: what to make of the Celtics’ disappointing season

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports The Boston Celtics haven’t been good this year. Understanding why is a matter of perspective. Early in the 2020-21 NBA season, the Boston Celtics played a two-week stretch of basketball during which they won seven out of the eight games they played. The stiffness of their competition throughout that span varied significantly, but the team appeared to have entered a groove. Boston’s victories came despite missing a key offensive cog in Kemba Walker, and gave hope to the notion that the Celtics may be able to pass last postseason’s...
