The Read & React: anatomy of a run

Bill Sy: Last night’s 13th win in a row was a sleepy game in Brooklyn, but there was some drama in the outcome relatively late in the game. After some lazy and sloppy play to start the half, the Nets grabbed a four-point lead halfway through the the third quarter. The Celtics would then go on a 19

The Kyrie Irving and Al Horford effect (video)

BOSTON – Since arriving in Boston, Al Horford has been an invaluable piece of the Boston Celtics’ success. Horford was the C’s first “big name” free agent signing and has been under the microscope of fans. Early in this NBA season, Horford and Kyrie Irving have displayed a nice chemistry that

It’s time for Isaiah Thomas to move on

BOSTON – The Boston Celtics’ former leader is continuing his press appearances to rehash the events that led up to his trade from Boston. Thomas held nothing back in regards to his disdain for former GM, Danny Ainge. Is Isaiah starting to look sour grapes? I say yes. I am a proud, card carrying member
