Boston Celtics Win Game 5 And Head To Chicago With The Chance To Move On

The Chicago Bulls and the Bostons Celtics have been point with each other since the start of the first round of the NBA playoffs. The Bulls managed to win the first two games making it look like the Celtics would soon be out, but the Celtics now are up 3-2 in the series fate a 108-97 victory against the Bulls last night with Isaiah Thomas and Avery Bradley combining for a total of 48 points. They played hard and with a bunch of pride as the Bulls struggled to climb back to the top.

The Bulls do have a great unit for an eighth-seeded team in the Eastern Conference. Jimmy Butler and Dwayne Wade have been hard to deal with. Isaiah Thomas has been able to help Boston overcome Wade and Butler through how he handles the ball. Plus with other key contributors like Avery Bradley, Amir Johnson, and Al Horford, the Celtics have been able to shoot the ball well from three and from mid-range.

With all of this being said, the Celtics will need to keep pushing as they head into game 6. Coach Brad Stevens definitely has built a solid young squad who can play together as a team, but they need to keep the Bulls on their heals with some tough defense in their next game.

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.

Something you never want to see.

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.

More information to come as the story develops….

Celtics Talk: The Little Guys

The play of Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward will not make or break this Celtics team. Everyone knows that they’ll perform. No it’s the ancillary characters, those hard-nosed guys who have been placed on the backburner, that will make the difference for Boston during the upcoming 2017-18 season.

This past summer was charged with controversy and pandemonium, following some massive moves made by Danny Ainge and his subordinates. Dishing out well-groomed fan favorites to teams manifold, Boston felt like the nexus of offseason activity in the NBA.

Many Celtics fans still harbor some reproach, regarding the unfamiliarity of this team. But I assure you that there is still exists that “Tommy Point” foundation, which the Celtics will look to for a foothold when the going gets tough. These are the individuals that will dictate the trajectory of this team’s season.
