ABC News - 26 days
LOS ANGELES -- Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart lacerated his hand on glass at the team hotel and missed Wednesday's 113-102 win over the? Clippers. Celtics coach Brad Stevens said the team is investigating how Smart, who went to a hospital to get stitches, injured himself on Wednesday afternoon. "He lacerated his hand on glass in the hotel, got stitches. I don't know the full story," Stevens said before the game. "We're learning more about that. [Assistant general manager] Mike Zarren and [assistant athletic trainer] Brian Dolan were with him at the hospital two hours ago [when Smart] got stitches. It doesn't sound like a long-term injury, but we're doing more research on how it happened." Pressed on why the team was investigating the incident, Stevens added, "Obviously, I want to make sure that I'm thorough in telling you how it happened and what happened. But, again, I think that he cut his hand in the hotel on glass sometime this...

Celtics complete largest comeback of the season against Rockets
ABC News - about 2 months
BOSTON -- Due to their grueling December schedule so obviously conspiring against them in recent weeks, the Boston Celtics had every reason to roll over on Thursday night. The fresh-legged Houston Rockets had built a 26-point first-half lead, and Boston seemed to have no answer for containing James Harden and his teammates. But on the second night of a back-to-back while playing shorthanded, the Celtics displayed some of the resiliency that decorated their 16-game winning streak earlier this season. Fueled almost entirely by energy on the defensive end -- and aided by two James Harden offensive fouls drawn by Marcus Smart in the final seconds -- the Celtics improbably rallied for a 99-98 triumph at TD Garden. "The result doesn't matter. It's the resiliency that they showed," said Celtics coach Brad Stevens. "[The Celtics] could have easily folded." It was Smart that reversed the momentum of the game with his defensive...

ABC News - 8 months
BOSTON -- The Celtics selected? Jayson Tatum?with the third pick in the 2017 NBA draft Thursday night, a selection made just days after they traded out of the No. 1 spot.? The 19-year-old Tatum averaged 16.8 points, 7.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists during his one season at Duke. His coach with the Blue Devils,?Mike Krzyzewski,?called him after Boston traded the No. 1 pick to Philadelphia earlier in the week, and he suggested the Celtics might be a good destination. "[Krzyzewski] called me and talked about how Boston wanted me to come up there for a workout, and he was just ranting about how great of a person [coach] Brad Stevens is, and that Coach K would love the opportunity if they would pick me, and he really wanted me to go up there and work out for them," Tatum said. "I was all for it. It worked out. I had a great time up there on my visit and obviously they enjoyed me." The 6-foot-8 Tatum has the scoring potential that could eventually help defray...

Heat to join Celtics in pursuit of Jazz All-Star Gordon Hayward
ABC News - 8 months
The Miami Heat intend to join the Boston Celtics in pursuit of Utah Jazz All-Star forward Gordon Hayward when free agency starts July 1, according to league sources. The Jazz certainly have a strong case to re-sign Hayward, thanks largely to the five-year pact worth an estimated $180 million that only they can offer as well as Utah's on-the-rise status in the Western Conference. But sources told ESPN.com that the Jazz regard the Heat as no less a threat to lure Hayward away than the Celtics, whose interest in the former Butler star has been anticipated for some time largely thanks to the presence of Hayward's college coach, Brad Stevens, on Boston's bench. The most that Miami or Boston can offer Hayward, however, is a four-year deal ?worth an estimated $133 million. Hayward, 27, made his All-Star breakthrough this past season and co-led the Jazz along with center Rudy Gobert to the second round of the...

Celtics' Isaiah Thomas misses second half of Game 2 after aggravating hip injury
ABC News - 9 months
BOSTON -- All-Star? Celtics?point guard Isaiah Thomas aggravated a hip injury in the first half of Friday's Game 2 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, sat out the second half, and is uncertain for Sunday's Game 3. Boston coach Brad Stevens said Thomas originally aggravated a nagging right hip injury during Game 6 last Friday in the second-round series against the Washington Wizards?and underwent a batch of testing before playing in Boston's Game 7 win Monday night. Thomas seemed to aggravate the injury again in the first half Friday against the Cavs and could be seen limping late in the second quarter. With Boston down 41 at halftime, Thomas was ruled out for the remainder of the game.? "I thought he looked much different in the first half," Stevens said. "When we went back to the locker room, our training staff and doctors got with him. He was pretty despondent not to be able to play. That guy is a tough guy and he plays...

Isaiah Thomas expected to play Game 2, then return home to family
ABC News - 10 months
WALTHAM, Mass. -- Isaiah Thomas remained with the Boston Celtics on Monday, and coach Brad Stevens said he expects that the All-Star guard will play Tuesday in Game 2 against the Chicago Bulls before traveling to be with his family after the death of his sister. Thomas scored 33 points in the Celtics' playoff-opening loss Sunday, one day after 22-year-old Chyna Thomas died in a single-car accident on an interstate?in their home state of Washington. "His plan, as of right now -- and, again, subject to him changing if he wants -- is that he'll be here [Tuesday] night and then will go to Tacoma after," Stevens said. "So either after the game [Tuesday] night or Wednesday morning." The Celtics have two days off before Game 3 Friday against the Bulls in Chicago. Stevens said memorial services for Thomas' sister had not been finalized but suggested the entire team would make an effort to attend. The Celtics are doing...

Jae Crowder: Celtics fans cheering Gordon Hayward 'sign of disrespect'
ABC News - about 1 year
BOSTON -- Recognizing that Utah Jazz forward Gordon Hayward will be a potential free agent this offseason -- and given his Butler University connections to Boston coach Brad Stevens -- Celtics fans greeted Hayward with some audible cheers during lineup introductions before Tuesday's game at TD Garden. That didn't sit well with Celtics forward Jae Crowder, who just so happens to play the same position as Hayward. Crowder responded with maybe his best game of the season, scoring 21 points on 6 of 8 shooting, while making all but one of the six 3-pointers that he put up over 35 minutes of floor time as part of Boston's 115-104 victory. After the game, Crowder sounded off, both in the locker room and on social media, about his perceived slight from the fans. "I heard the cheering before the game. I didn't like that at all," said Crowder. "I think that was a sign of disrespect to me from the fans. That sparked a little fire in...

Celtics' Swede Jerebko finishes season strong despite loss to Atlanta
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
By Philip O'Connor (Reuters) - The Boston Celtics may have crashed out of the playoffs after being pummeled by Atlanta on their home floor, but power forward Jonas Jerebko is not too down-hearted after finally getting a chance to show the Boston crowd what he can do as a starter. Thrust into the starting lineup by coach Brad Stevens last Friday with the Celtics 2-0 down in the series, the Swede helped extend it to a sixth game before the Celtics lost 104-92 at home on Thursday to bring their season to a close. On a night when Boston struggled with its shooting, Jerebko scored the opening five points of the game for the Celtics, finishing up with 13 on the night in another strong performance since being promoted from the bench.
