Celtics Wrap: Boston Survives Tale Of Two Halves In Game 3 Win Vs. Pacers

Celtics Wrap: Boston Survives Tale Of Two Halves In Game 3 Win Vs. Pacers

After two games where neither team did much scoring, the Boston Celtics and Indiana Pacers came out firing Friday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The two sides combined for 60 first-half points, only to have their respective offenses come to a screeching halt out of halftime. It quickly turned into a rock fight, but the Celtics would ultimately prevail in another impressive and gritty performance by a score of 104-96. In an up-and-down game, Jaylen Brown was Boston’s one consistent contributor from start to finish. The 22-year-old finished with 23 points on 8-of-9 shooting (4-of-5 3-PT) to go along […]

Red Sox: Slumping Boston still seeking answers; Dustin Pedroia back on injured list

Red Sox: Slumping Boston still seeking answers; Dustin Pedroia back on injured list

Hide caption Hide caption By Bill Koch, @BillKoch25 NEW YORK — There are too many passengers on the Red Sox roster at the moment. Several of those same players took turns driving Boston to a championship last season, but this season, they’re misfiring in the early going. To suggest the club move on from the likes of Mookie Betts or Chris Sale would be idiocy, which puts the fringes of the group in some degree of jeopardy. Blake Swihart was the first casualty Tuesday. The catcher was designated for assignment prior to the two-game sweep at the hands of […]

Kyrie Irving: ‘There’s nothing like’ playoff basketball in Boston

Kyrie Irving: ‘There’s nothing like’ playoff basketball in Boston

WATCH: Kyrie Irving dazzles with 37 in Game 2 win over Pacers BOSTON — Back in February, after an embarrassing loss in Chicago, Kyrie Irving suggested the Celtics would be just fine in the playoffs. Asked for a reason, he replied, “Because I’m here.” It seemed potentially overconfident in the moment but nights like Wednesday’s Game 2 victory over the Indiana Pacers suggest, maybe just maybe, Irving was on to something. Irving scored a game-high 37 points while connecting on 15 of 26 shots in Boston’s 99-91 triumph at TD Garden. The Celtics lead the best-of-seven series 2-0 as […]

(Frank Gunn/The Canadian Press via AP) TORONTO — While focus is on the Bruins’ top line not performing, another strength has apparently gone by the wayside in the series with the Maple Leafs. The Bruins have three power-play goals in the series — one in each game — but the man-advantage still has somehow felt out of sync at times. Late in Game 3 Monday night, […]

New Starting Lineup is Hungry for Growth and Success

New Starting Lineup is Hungry for Growth and Success

BOSTON – The Celtics used 23 starting lineups during the regular season. They’re hoping that the latest version to take the court is the one that will lead them to the Promised Land. That’s the version that consists of Kyrie Irving, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, Al Horford and Aron Baynes. That’s the one that took the court Sunday afternoon, when Boston built a 1-0 series lead against the Indiana Pacers. It’s also the one that, including Game 1, has started only four games together all season. Boston’s most popular starting lineup this season consisted of Irving, Marcus Smart, Tatum, […]

LEADING OFF: Red Sox-Yankees, Lindor begins rehab assignment

LEADING OFF: Red Sox-Yankees, Lindor begins rehab assignment

A look at what’s happening around the majors today: RIVALRY RENEWED Mookie Betts tries to get going at the plate when the Red Sox (6-11) visit the Yankees (6-9) in the first meeting this season between the longtime rivals. Boston knocked New York out of the playoffs last year on the way to a World Series championship, but both clubs are off to surprisingly slow starts in 2019. Same is true of Betts, who is batting .222. “Basically, what I’m doing is unacceptable,” the AL MVP said. “I have to figure out a way to get something done and […]
