2231
The Boston Celtics first week of training camp is almost over, and so far, so good for Joe Mazzulla and his coaching staff. Of course, his coaching staff is Ime Udoka's coaching staff, but he seems pretty cool with how things are going. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal discusses that before opening the mailbag to answer questions about Mazzulla's potential future, Robert Williams' injury and finding another big man, and adding Jae Crowder.

Malcolm Brogdon the difference-maker, and Boston Celtics chasing Jay Larranaga
2913
Day 2 of the Celtics training camp brought more good vibes, which are still very necessary, after the Ime Udoka scandal. But it might be Malcolm Brogdon who makes a huge difference early, not just with is on-court ability, but his unique perspective after all he's seen in six NBA seasons with six different head coaches. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal and Tom Westerholm discuss the impact Brogdon can make, the growing pains of integrating him, and then Boston's pursuit of former assistant (now with the Clippers) Jay Larranaga. Why are they chasing him? What would that mean to the team? And what are the possible unitended consequences? Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

Boston Celtics media day: Moving on from Ime Udoka
2500
The Celtics held media day on Monday and the topic of discussion was still mostly Ime Udoka. Most of the players were still shocked and pretty confused by the whole thing. They were also pretty supportive of interim head coach Joe Mazzulla, with most guys (including Malcolm Brogdon) saying some really nice things. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal was there asking questions and has more, including what Mazzulla will be doing as a head coach, and why the players buying in right away is more important than ever.

Would you trade Jaylen Brown (and someone else to make the money work) for Durant? John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal and Tom Westerholm of Boston.com discuss why they think it's appealing but not the best idea. Plus, why did Yam Madar pull out of summer league?

Boston Cetlics draft JD Davison, say moving into first round cost too much
2328
It was a quiet NBA draft for the Boston Celtics, who didn't move into the first round as some rumors suggested they might. Instead, they said that was too costly of a move, so they stuck with the 53rd pick and drafted JD Davison instead. John Karalis explains why Davison might have been the pick, and the wide range of possibilities for him, including why he could end up being a summer league darling.

Boston Celtics draft rumors: trading into first round for Tari Eason?
2143
There are rumors starting to swirl involving the Boston Celtics, including some chatter that the Celtics might be poking around getting back into the first round in pursuit of LSU's Tari Eason. John Karalis gets into why that would be an interesting choice, but also very on brand for a team looking to fill its roster with versatile wing defenders. Also, there are a bunch of other rumors and names floating around, including Nicolas Batum, Gordon Hayward (who would be great, but is very difficult to get) and of course -- Bradley Beal (don't get your hopes up). Also: I'm shaving my beard off this week & I decided to have some fun with it & try to raise money for a good cause. So here's the deal: If we can raise $1,000 for Celtics VP Heather Walker's glioblastoma fundraiser, I'll do Friday's podcast w/whatever weird beard style you choose.

Boston Celtics making Game 5 all about the offense, even after Steph Curry's 43 point game
2338
A lot of the talk at practice on Sunday was about how the Celtics could defend Steph Curry better after his moster 43 point Game 4, but the Celtics didn't seem too worried about that. Instead, they were focused a lot more on their own offense as the most pressing issue to correct. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal and Brian Robb of MassLive discuss that, whether there are any adjustments to be made at this point, and how Ime Udoka might approach Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

Jayson Tatum's rough night, Boston Celtics lose Game 3 (and yes, the officiating sucked)
2593
The Boston Celtics dropped Game 3 to the Milwaukee Bucks after a furious comeback fell just short. Jayson Tatum had his worst playoff game, maybe ever, when the Celtics really only needed a few good minutes from him in the fourth quarter. John Karalis and Tom Westerholm discuss that, still being confident in the Celtics winning the series, and, yes, the officiating ... which missed a few blatant calls that need to be addressed.

The Celtics came out in Game 2 and spent the first half playing nearly perfect Celtics basketball and building a 25 point lead against the Milwaukee Bucks. Giannis Antetokounmpo got going in the 2nd half, but Boston's defense clamped down on the Bucks shooters to keep the lead in double digits. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal discusses the adjustments, the big performances from Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum, how midrange shots got things going, Grant Williams becoming the new X-factor, and the thing Boston has done twice that gives them an advantage.

Are Boston Celtics for real? Can Ben Simmons make a difference for Brooklyn Nets?
2646
The Boston Celtics are getting ready to face the Brooklyn Nets in round 1 of the East playoffs, but there's still a little bit of a feeling out there that things might not really be real for them. There's also a feeling that Ben Simmons can come in and make an impact for at least a short time. John Karalis is joined by the Boston Globe's Chad Finn to discuss those things and Chad's piece making sure Danny Ainge gets his proper due for being the architect of most of this team (and how this compares to the championship Red Sox).

Boston Celtics will face Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, & Brooklyn Nets in first round
2609
The Brooklyn Nets beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in the play-in, so that means the Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets will face off in the first round of the NBA playoffs. John Karalis and Tom Westerholm break down some of the Nets win over Cleveland and why this doesn't change much of the opinion of how the series will go. The newly announced schedule does favor the Nets, but the Celtics might benefit, too. Bruce Brown had some things to say, which might get Al Horford and Daniel Theis riled up.

Jayson Tatum, Boston Celtics bench, key big comeback win vs. Atlanta Hawks

Jaylen Brown sprained his ankle early in the game and that sent the Celtics into a bit of a spiral, leading to a pretty bad half of basketball.

Boston Celtics beat New Orleans Pelicans behind big Jayson Tatum, Dennis Schröder 4th quarters

The Boston Celtics were asleep for most of their early MLK Day game against the New Orleans Pelicans, but they woke up in time to pull away in the fourth quarter. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal explains why this would be just a normal game for most teams, but the Celtics haven't earned the right to be treated that way. Jayson Tatum and Dennis Schröder were the big 4th quarter catalysts but Jaylen Brown had a hand in things as well while Aaron Nesmith provided a big energy boost.

It didn't look great, but the Celtics came away with an 88-87 win over the Sixers in a game Joel Embiid was clearly not himself.

Ime Udoka and Josh Richardson also savored this win.

Boston Celtics blown out by Brooklyn Nets, get too caught up in jumpers, refs
1939
This did not turn out to be the good basketball game we thought it might be. The Brooklyn Nets walked into the TD Garden and waxed the parquet with the Celtics from the jump. Patty Mills exploded out of the gates, Kevin Durant was unstoppable, and the Nets made it look easy. The Celtics, meanwhile, did more settling than the Pilgrims. Their intensity rose in the fourth quarter as they made their obligatory run, but it was too big a hill to climb. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal discusses that, Jayson Tatum getting a little to caught up in the Kevin Durant matchup and everyone getting too caught up with the refs.
