Boston Celtics still clinging to Playoff Series against the Wizards

The Boston Celtics have been trying to keep up the pace against the Washington Wizards in the second round of the NBA Playoffs. Two nights ago, however, the Celtics took a loss to the Wizards in a heartbreaking score of 91-92. Both Isaiah Thomas and Avery Bradley led with 27 points while Bradley Beal was able too score 33 points on the Celtics.

The Celtics were predicted to go far into this years playoffs, but the Wizards are able to keep them on their feet with the depth they got on their roster. The Wizards are a team that establishes their game focus through having a dynamic roster of veterans and young talent. Young players like Bradley Beal and Kelly Oubre help the Wizards find balance in the teams offense while veterans like Marcin Gortat and Jason Smith provide experience in the front court with defense.

The Celtics have got depth on their roster as well with Al Horford and Amir Johnson providing good big men experience down below. In the back court Isaiah Thomas and Avery Bradley provide good offense. If the Celtics can step it up a notch, they should be able to beat the Wizards in game seven. Game seven will determine if the Celtics will move on or not. They will have to play to their hearts content if they want to beat a stacked team like the Wizards.

Jayson Tatum’s Patience: The Deciding Factor

Published

Jayson Tatum

There is currently a preponderance of NBA rookies who are dominating the league. We’re talking about 20-somethings (some even younger than that) leading their teams in nearly every statistical category.

This is no longer your father’s NBA.

Gone are the days of “earning your stripes”. In today’s game, if a player has the talent he’s going to be encouraged to use it.

Our favorite youngling, here in Boston, is unanimously Jayson Tatum. This 19-year-old kid has stormed the Garden like some new-school Larry BirdPaul Pierce hybrid. He’s the futuristic embodiment of “Celtics Basketball” – the silhouette for Boston’s modern logo.

But Tatum’s not even the superlative of this year’s rookie class!

Many “Green Teamers” would argue the cockeyed contention that Jayson Tatum is a shoo-in for Rookie of the Year. As heartening as it may be for the flourishing freshman to hear such high praise, it still stems from unchecked fandom.

I swear, there must be something circulating around the Charles River. It seems that Boston has become more and more generous, in recent years, when it comes to appraising young talent.

In every sport, we’re ready to give our kindergarteners their high school diploma, the very second they demonstrate their ability.

The homer expectations, surrounding Jayson Tatum, are in need of an adjustment. Let’s take a look at a few rookies, who are ahead of Tatum in the primary categories.

But do not worry. Trifecta Sports has your back.

We’re here to abbreviate all of the Boston Sports highlights so that fans can stay tuned in, all while going through the motions of the season. I promise to be even more critical and unforgiving, when eviscerating the play of New England teams.

So do your thing! Put a smile on for the family. And keep coming to Trifecta for sports news, whenever you get a free second to pretend that you’re bathroom.

You already know what this is, folks. It’s time for another perturbed installment of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Walking in Winter Wonderland Edition.

Celtics 2018 Draft Prospects

Published

Boston Celtics

They say lightning never strikes twice, but the Boston Celtics have managed to capture lightning in a bottle multiple times, with their past several draft picks. From flowering stars like Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, to secondary underdogs like Terry Rozier and Marcus Smart – the C’s recent draft decisions look more educated with every passing game.

But the exhilarating string of Brooklyn picks, which the infamous Big 3 trade exfoliated, are now all but exhausted. Well, directly speaking that is (semantics). Boston must now face a new mutation of parlayed picks and the stipulations that come with them.

Fun, right?

The selections of the immediate future will be governed by all sorts of caveats and esoteric protections that are hard to get excited about.

Nonetheless, Danny Ainge and his pencil-pushing subordinates have demonstrated their superlative ability to make something out of nothing. Whether the Celtics have the first pick or the last pick, they are going to find value in a “Belichickian” manner.

Let’s take a look at the prospects that Boston should consider drafting, come June of 2018.
