Payton Pritchard, Luke Kornet provide “the juice” in blowout win in OKC

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via The rookie and newly acquired big man gave Boston a winning element after Celtics’ slow start. In the final game of a five-games-in-seven-nights stretch (that also included the stress of the trade deadline), the Celtics began the game in lackluster fashion. Despite their vastly improved ball movement, Boston failed to convert their looks from every level, falling to an early deficit as a result. Brad Stevens described the team as having “no juice” when discussing Boston’s lack of energy and facing a 12-point deficit midway...

Saying goodbye to Daniel Theis, Boston’s gentle German giant

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via The War on Theis will now be fought in Chicago. Daniel Theis, the Celtics’ center who played on four Eastern Conference Finals-appearing teams while believing that he had Kevin Durant’s midrange game, could often be found fraternizing with the families of both Gordon Hayward and Aron Baynes prior to their respective trades, and masqueraded as 6-foot-10 while likely being closer to 6-foot-5, was traded to the Chicago Bulls Thursday as a part of a three-team deal. Mo Wagner and Luke Kornet will head to Boston; Javonte Green will also...

Danny Ainge Makes Admission About Decision To Trade Daniel Theis

Unpacking the Celtics’ trade deadline

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports Evan Fournier and an uncluttered rotation improved the Celtics in the short term, but the long term value remains to be seen.
