The Boston Celtics face by far their toughest stretch of games starting tonight with the Philadelphia 76ers, soon after which the team heads out for its annual West Coast swing, returning to cap off the most challenging portion of its 2021-22 schedule with another tilt against the Sixers on their home court. Over those 10 games, the team faces all …
 
Thanksgiving day is nearly here, and along with it, a sharp uptick in the difficulty of the Boston Celtics' 2021-22 schedule. Over the course of the Celtics' next dozen games, only two teams currently possess a record below .500 at the time of this writing Tuesday evening, with the majority of the league's realistic title contenders on the docket f…
 
The rivalry between the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers is one of the oldest and most celebrated in all of sport, and for good reason. Somehow, nearly seven decades into the heated competition for dominance in greatness between the two storied franchise, the tally remains at a tie after the Lakers' most recent title, with each club now at…
 
When it comes to using analytics to get a fresh perspective on things, there are few in the game with a better angle on that than The Athletic's Seth Partnow. Former Head of Basketball Research for the Milwaukee Bucks and recent author of the new book "The Midrange Theory: Basketball's Evolution in the Age of Analytics" (pre-order it here!), Partno…
 
Against the Washington Wizards on October 30, the Boston Celtics flirted with a historically bad shooting night, hitting just 7.7% of their 3-pointers, making just 2 out of 26 attempts. One of their best marksmen from deep, Jayson Tatum, is shooting under 30% from 3-point range and veterans Marcus Smart and Al Horford are both having a rough shooti…
 
It isn't often that an NBA Finals MVP writes a book detailing a behind-the-scenes view of their career at the highest level of competition in the best basketball league in the world, but Celtics Hall of Fame forward Cedric Maxwell has done as much in his new book "If These Walls Could Talk: Boston Celtics: Stories from the Boston Celtics Sideline, …
 
Fans of the Boston Celtics hope their team avoids the COVID-19 travails of last season, and many might have been surprised to hear the two vice presidents in the NBA's Player's Association referring to the vaccine as a "personal choice" as controversy over local mandates churned around the league. Why wouldn't a union whose job it is to act in the …
 
Much of the conversation ahead of the 2021-22 NBA season circulating in the NBA media has revolved around something that isn't necessarily a basketball conversation, though it has pervaded virtually all aspects of contemporary life. We are of course talking about COVID-19 vaccination in the league, and in particular some especially vaccine-resistan…
 
The Boston Celtics have played their first game of their 2021-22 preseason slate, giving fans around the world their annual first taste of mostly meaningless games to over-react to. And far be it from us at the "Celtics Lab" podcast to miss out on such cherished annual festivities. To that end, we brought on a special guest, Chris Forsberg of NBC S…
 
Along with most of the NBA on Monday, the Boston Celtics held their annual Media Day proceedings. And like most of the other teams, there was a lot of hope and good vibes inflected with a tinge of controversy as the league's vaccination status became a topic of conversation touching almost every franchise in some way. The Celtics as a team were wit…
 
Less than a week away from training camp, we find ourselves about as anxious for Boston Celtics basketball as we have been since the pandemic hiatus, chasing after whispers of potential star trade target disgruntlement and arguing over meaningless player rankings. But for many, visiting an NBA arena or even watching a game on television is a luxury…
 
With news that the Boston Celtics might target Zach LaVine of the Chicago Bulls should Washington Wizards star guard Bradley Beal prove out of reach of the Celtics, the hosts of the "Celtics Lab" podcast got to thinking on just how hard it is to create a true contender in the NBA right now. With a fair amount of talent coagulated in just a handful …
 
With one of the most active offseasons in the entire league this summer, you will be forgiven as a fan of the Boston Celtics if you have lost track of what the other teams in the NBA's Eastern Conference have been up to, much less what the consensus is on where they may end up in the standings by the end of the next season. But at the "Celtics Lab"…
 
Assessing the Boston Celtics' 2021 NBA offseason has become something of a cottage industry in recent days with the assumption that the team has more or less wrapped up its major moves for the season after handing out a spate of contract extensions. So far be it from us, your "Celtics Lab" podcast hosts Cameron Tabatabaie, Justin Quinn and Alex Gol…
 
The Boston Celtics started their offseason with a bang, making major moves to create cap flexibility and seeming to signal they were all in on pursuing a max deal star in free agency perhaps as soon as the 2022 NBA offseason. Until it became clear they were not. Now, more recently, the Celtics have been handing out contract extensions to the player…
 
The Boston Celtics started their offseason with a bang, making a splash into the realm of cap flexibility when they moved on from former starting point guard Kemba Walker's contract almost before the dust settled on their 2020-21 season. They continued to make moves to free up their cap, which many thought signaled a plan to pursue a star -- perhap…
 
Just hours after the most recent episode of the Celtics Lab was recorded, free agent point guard Dennis Schroder announced his plans to sign with the Boston Celtics, presumably on a one-season deal for the taxpayer mid-level exception (MLE) of approximately $5.9 million. To that end, your hosts Alex Goldberg, Justin Quinn and Cameron Tabatabaie put…
 
There's been a lot of ink spilled on what the Boston Celtics might be planning, who they might be after with their apparent push to keep their books clean enough to sign a max player in free agency next offseason or soon after, and just what it would take to get the presumptive target to Boston. But what if that target -- Washington Wizards All-NBA…
 
With Silly Season in full swing and the summer free agency nearly upon us, making sense of potentially explosive rumors, trade proposals and free agent signings can send one's mind into a tailspin. The Boston Celtics might trade away longtime point guard Marcus Smart -- or extend him. They could end up dealing for New Orleans Pelicans point guard L…
 
There are some strong opinions out there on whether or not the Boston Celtics ought to trade for Washington Wizards star Bradley Beal, but even if the team doesn't end up dealing for the potentially disgruntled All-NBA guard, they will need to have an alternative plan in mind. To that end, on this episode of the Celtics Lab, we dive into our though…
 
With every passing moment, Boston Celtics fans draw closer to the 2021 NBA draft, and while they may not have a first round pick, that doesn't mean the Celtics can't extract a valuable player with some careful drafting on the part of new team president Brad Stevens and company. With that in mind, we brought in friend of the pod and NBA draft expert…
 
The NBA's offseason tends to shift the focus of its fans to a more international context as favorite players spend time abroad and potential overseas players come into focus for the season to come. But in an Olympics year in particular, we can find the league's media attention focused outside the ambit of the NBA even more than usual. And for fans …
 
While there isn't any Boston Celtics basketball to watch, there is news of current and possibly future Celtics gearing up to play some roundball in Las Vegas. There's also several Boston alumni about to play in the 2021 NBA Finals to keep us busy basketball-wise, and some disheartening commentary regarding covering them making the rounds. On this e…
 
While it might have been a trade that not only was predicted by half the Boston Celtics media, it's also one the fanbase effectively wished into existence -- the deal in question of course being the Al Horford return to the Celtics from the Oklahoma City Thunder. And with Al comes the Horford clan, and friend of the podcast Anna in particular. A Bo…
 
The Boston Celtics have a new head coach in former Brooklyn Nets assistant Ime Udoka, and former Celtic big man Al Horford made his first appearance with the press after his trade back to the team from the Oklahoma City Thunder. With all this in mind, we felt we needed to make an early podcast appearance to discuss some of the significant goings-on…
 
While it might be an era many Boston Celtics fans would prefer to forget, the story of Kyrie Irving's exit to join a Brooklyn Nets superteam is a window into some uncomfortable truths about the city and a subset of the team's fans. And while certainly no stranger to self-created controversies through his communicative style and mercurial persona, t…
 
Al Horford is a Boston Celtic again and Kemba Walker is now a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder, while Moses Brown -- the big from that team you probably hadn't heard of before he hung 21 points and 23 rebounds on the Celtics -- is also headed to Boston in a trade that took most by surprise in timing if not structure. Boston's first-round pick is…
 
Former NBA Finals MVP Cedric Maxwell helped bring two titles to the Boston Celtics, and played his career under a number of famed coaches of the storied franchise, so he knew a thing or two about the dynamics a coaching change can have on a team with title aspirations even before he tried his hand at the trade himself. And now with the Celtics neck…
 
With some time to have thought about both, it's time to reflect on the 2020-21 Boston Celtics and how the team's major front-office shakeup will affect its future. With longtime team president Danny Ainge stepping down from that role in favor of (then) head coach Brad Stevens, the Celtics have as much on their plate to work on as they have at any p…
 
The Boston Celtics followed up a disappointing first-round exit at the hands of the Brooklyn Nets in the 2021 NBA playoffs with a truly major shake-up internally, easily the biggest set of changes the organization has seen in nearly two decades. The announcement of longtime Team President Danny Ainge's retirement and the elevation of Head Coach Bra…
 
Former Boston Celtics and current Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving poked the third rail of Boston sports ahead of his first appearance in front of fans since leaving the team in free agency by (rightly and justifiably) asking for a response from the fans coming to Games 3 and 4 free of casual racism. In asking the fans of his former team to 'keep it…
 
When Boston Celtics fans were hoping for a distraction from the turd of a series their banged-up Celtics club was producing vs- the Brooklyn Nets in the East's first round, they probably weren't looking to get sucked into the city's sordid history of fraught race relations nor the reprehensible behavior sweeping the league at the moment. But former…
 
prospects for winning even a single game of the matchup diminished, it would be easy to doom and gloom about the Boston Celtics' 104 - 93 loss to the Nets Saturday night. But despite the sting of defeat, there were a fair amount of positives to take from the contest -- and the potential for an upset win or two are still out there if with fewer chan…
 
Whether the Boston Celtics win or lose their play-in tournament game against the Washington Wizards, it's safe to say it won't affect the legacy of recently-inducted Hall of Fame Celtics legend Kevin Garnett. So in the spirit of sports positive inspired by friend of the pod the Riffs Man, we decided to take a break from focusing on the season at ha…
 
It can be easy to lose sight of the things that matter in moments of crisis, and in a year and counting of a global pandemic, it can be even easier to forget we're all profoundly impacted by it. The 2020-21 Boston Celtics are dragging themselves across the finish line of perhaps the most difficult season in the seventy-year history of the NBA, miss…
 
While the fourth seed and home court in the first round is not out of reach, is it still a realistic target? What would Boston likely be up against if they slip to the sixth seed -- or worse, the play-in tournament? Is there a scenario that could realistically see the Celtics bounced before they even sniff the actual playoffs? And just what is this…
 
There's ten games left in the Boston Celtics schedule, and after witnessing their lackadaisical effort in the team's 119 - 115 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder Tuesday night, one might be forgiven if one thought the team's players wish it were fewer. But the Celtics still have time to build some chemistry and rhythm heading into the postseason, an…
 
The Boston Celtics have made something of a name for themselves as a good landing spot for players whose career has fallen short of where expectations had at one time had them pegged, with head coach Brad Stevens getting a reputation as the sort of coach able to get a little more out of such players than his peers. Now, the team has decided to sign…
 
As the dust from the 2021 NBA trade deadline settles and teams more or less know what they have to work with, only injuries and chemistry remain to shake up the Eastern Conference standings heading into the stretch run ahead of the playoffs. With a three-team upper class of the Brooklyn Nets, Philadelphia 76ers and Milwaukee Bucks virtually certain…
 
With news that veteran shooting guard Evan Fournier will be entering the NBA's health and safety protocols for the second time in a week just before the team squares off with the Philadelphia 76ers, it'd be easy to get negative about the Celtics outlook. But for this week's episode of the Celtics Lab, we decided to flip the script and look at the p…
 
While there's been plenty of good and bad things alike to point to since the 2021 NBA trade deadline for the Boston Celtics, the other big event in the basketball universe that is happening this month -- the NCAA tournament -- is getting close to its finale, and with that attention tends to turn to the Celtics potential targets in the 2021 NBA draf…
 
With tons of trade action in the Eastern Conference and perhaps less than Celtics fans wanted, we've got plenty to talk about on this special post-trade deadline podcast of the Celtics Lab, where we're joined by Michael Scotto of HoopsHype and USA TODAY Sports. We dive into the deals that brought in shooting guard Evan Fournier and big men Luke Kor…
 
The Boston Celtics are front in center in seemingly every trade rumor there is ahead of the 2021 NBA trade deadline, with fan favorites like Marcus Smart supposedly in the mix to be moved to a new team, and a bevy of other names linked casually or in hot pursuit. Enough to leave even a savvy superfan in a spate of dizziness, we felt it best to turn…
 
With a historically-massive $28.5 million traded player exception (TPE) generated by the exit of veteran forward Gordon Hayward last offseason, the Boston Celtics find themselves the nexus of the 2021 NBA trade deadline, for better or worse. And with a COVID-inflected season that's seen the Celtics' fortunes rise and fall with the seeming ficklenes…
 
The dust has settled on a hastily-assembled All-Star game in Atlanta at the mid-point of the 2020-21 NBA season, with the Celtics star wings having made some noise in the annual exhibition after turning around a spate of ill fortune heading into the break. But what does the coming second act of the season hold for the Celtics, who dive into it abou…
 
The Boston Celtics aren't dead -- they're feeling better, actually! Three-fourths of the way through a critical closing stretch to close out the first half of their 2020-21 NBA season, the Celtics have won all but the last one remaining, and have transformed the stormy, depressing narrative that had attached itself to the team in recent weeks. From…
 
The Boston Celtics can't seem to string two wins together in a season they were anticipated to contend for a title, and while that goal might not be off the table just yet, it's also clear some major changes are in order to stabilize the ship. With so many factors in play for creating the dissonance in the Celtics' play in 2020-21, it's hard to pin…
 
Before the Boston Celtics got back in the win column against the Denver Nuggets Tuesday night, it's probably safe to say emotions surrounding the Celtics internally and among their fans were at a nadir for the season. With a .500 record and embarrassing losses driven in part by players the Celtics could have drafted, rumbles of ire and fingers of b…
 
The Boston Celtics have nearly completed their annual West Coast road trip as they inch closer to the 2020-21 NBA trade deadline, and it's clear that even considering several recent injuries, the team has issues it needs to address. At the same time -- and possibly because of that -- team president Danny Ainge revealed that the Celtics were on the …
 
The Boston Celtics had a tough week with losses to the Los Angeles Lakers and San Antonio Spurs, but they could have also lost Marcus Smart for a long while to a leg injury that turned out to be much less severe than it initially appeared. At the same time, Boston geared up for a west coast road trip while JJ Redick trade rumors tied the veteran gu…
