Celtics head into All-Star break on high note, win 132-125 over Raptors

Photo by Adam Glanzman/ The Celtics enter the break on a four-game winning streak. Here’s the thing about the Boston Celtics and the Toronto Raptors: they’ve been trending in polar opposite directions as the All-Star break looms. The Celtics hoped to enter the break with momentum; the Raptors just wanted to enter the break. Both teams got their wish, as the Celtics beat a shorthanded Toronto squad, 132-125. Must we really talk about why it was so close? Fine, fine; it is the assignment after all. But first, some housekeeping: Marcus Smart (calf) and Romeo Langford...

What Brad Stevens Told Celtics After Third-Straight Loss Vs. Hawks

The Boston Celtics look like a team who just want to get to the NBA All-Star break. Maybe they need to get some rest. Or they want to get vocal leader Marcus Smart back on the floor.

Celtics’ starting five continues to show signs of life

Photo by Glenn James/NBAE via Amid a second straight defeat, Boston’s starting unit is proving to be a source of optimism. There are a handful of notable issues that have pushed the Boston Celtics below .500, landing them in the #6 seed following a 110-107 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday evening. Injuries remain prevalent as Marcus Smart isn’t expected back until after the All-Star break. Though he finished with 21 points and was a team-high plus-9 against Dallas, Boston still isn’t exactly sure which version of Kemba Walker to expect on a night-to-night...

Dončić heroics propell Dallas Mavericks to 110-107 win over Boston Celtics

Dončić heroics propell Dallas Mavericks to 110-107 win over Boston Celtics

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports Boston scrapped late in Dallas, but it wasn’t enough, C’s drop to 16-15 on the season. With an early West coast timeslot, the Boston Celtics visited the sub .500 Dallas Mavericks (14-15). Boston would come into the game after suffering a demoralising overtime defeat at the hands of New Orleans. Boston gave up a 24-point lead and would look to rebound on the road without Marcus Smart, expected back with the team after the All-Star Break. The Mavericks would be spearheaded by the high usage and crafty Luka Doncic who is currently 3rd in...
