Boston Celtics Boston Celtics Are Simply Not As Good As Cav’s According To Wyc Published 6 months ago on April 12, 2017 By Tanner Rebelo Share Tweet Boston Celtics Are Simply Not As Good As Cav’s According To C’s Owner Wyc Grousbeck So you think the Boston Celtics are better than the Cleveland Cavaliers? Well if you do there is someone who would tend to disagree with you. Boston Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck joined WEEI mid-day show OM&F on Wednesday, hours before his club had a chance to lock down the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference vs. the Bucks, and was very frank about its chances of beating the Cavaliers in the playoffs. “I don’t think we’re as good as Cleveland,” Grousbeck said. “If we got a chance to play them in the postseason, I’d love to see it, but I’m not sure how it would turn out.” Grousbeck wasn’t just basing that thought on last week’s disappointing performance against the Cavs in a blowout loss with the top seed on the line, though that game didn’t help. “I actually hope the guys don’t forget that,” he said. “I hope the guys don’t forget how badly we were beaten last week and they can use it as fire going forward.” He disputed the notion that the Celtics saw the Cavs clicking on all cylinders. “That was Cleveland clicking on one cylinder, if you ask me,” he said. “I don’t want to disrespect them, but I saw LeBron [James] take that game over single-handedly. He had a lot of help, etc. . . . I’m not disrespecting Kyrie [Irving] or Kevin Love or anyone else on the team, but LeBron took that over for a period of about six possessions there on the offensive and defensive end of the court. He dominated us. I have to give him a ton of credit. It showed us that we’ve got a ways to go.” I am in full support of Wyc’s comments, but I think the Cav’s have a history of underperforming and play poorly as a team. Cleveland is better, but Boston has more heart and chemistry, and with that there is a chance.

After the completion of his surgery in Boston on Wednesday night, it was being reported that Hayward would likely miss the entire season with his ankle injury. According to Hayward’s agent Mark Bartelstein Hayward is unlikely to return this season, but that he is expected to ” make a full recovery and return to his All-Star form.” After surgery tonight, Boston's Gordon Hayward is unlikely to return this season, agent Mark Bartelstein told ESPN. — Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) October 19, 2017 Of course, there is the chance he returns in some type of playoff-bound scenario, but that thought has to be a long ways away. For the moment it is important to figure out what this team can do this season without an all-star forward in the mix. This will mean added pressure to superstar guard Kyrie Irving and the longest tenured Celtic Marcus Smart. Even without Hayward this Celtics team still should be in the top of the Eastern Conference conversation like they were last season. They are essentially last years team now with a better point guard. There will be an overreliance on Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. But if those two young players can pull through you could see a Celtics team that could be set up better over the long haul than if Hayward was healthy. Unfortunately for Brad Stevens and company the Boston Celtics have opened their campaign 0-2 and will now look to find themselves moving forward. Continue Reading Boston Celtics The “Green” Lining Published 14 hours ago on October 18, 2017 By Jackson Kelley Not to understate the solemnity of Gordon Hayward‘s injury, but the Boston Celtics are going to be just fine. Saying, that without one player, the C’s are done for presupposes that this team is short on talent. It’s not. When a newly acquired superstar goes down, it’s hard for fans to manufacture any positivity. Especially when such a thing happens during the first quarter of the season-opener. But let’s try to take a look at the implications of Hayward’s injury, without myopic jumpiness. The 2017-18 season is very far from over for the Celtics. Gordon Hayward dislocating his ankle did not fracture Boston’s playoff hopes. There are a few reassuring abstractions to be made from the box score of Tuesday night’s game, in which Hayward suffered the gruesome left leg injury. Yes, the C’s lost to the Cavs 99-102, but this team passionately competed. And they mustered up the resolve to do so with one of their best players being escorted to the hospital. This fact alone suggests that there are guys on this team who are willing, and able, to attempt to fill Gordon Hayward’s Nikes.

Boston Celtics forward Gordon Hayward went down with a serious leg injury just five minutes into his Celtics career. Hayward went up for an alley-oop against the Cleveland Cavaliers and came down awkwardly on his leg. It looked like his ankle was dislocated/fractured. Upon suffering the injury the game was stopped with players and fans alike in complete disbelief of what had occurred. Hayward was stretchered off the court wearing an air cast on his leg. He was brought into the Cavs locker room for further evaluation and was then going to be moved to another area of the arena. Celtics and Cavs medical staff announced that the injury suffered by Hayward is a fractured left ankle. A quick google search pegs the timeline at six weeks for the bones to heal.
