Kemba Walker's Knee Felt Good In Minutes-Restricted Game Vs. Bucks

Kemba Walker's Knee Felt Good In Minutes-Restricted Game Vs. Bucks

12 days ago   |   By NESN

How he feels in the morning obviously is more important, but for now Kemba Walker is feeling pretty good.
Out of an abundance of caution, the Boston Celtics kept the star point guard on a minutes restriction in Friday night's loss to the Milwaukee Bucks , and he'll likely be limited throughout the seeding round. It's all because of a knee injury that lingered most of the season, and though Walker has insisted that he's fine, the team understandably refuses to take chances.
Thus, he played 19:08 Friday, checking out for the final time shortly after the midway point of the third period. And...

Brad Stevens Explains What Happened With Celtics' Slow Start Vs. Bucks

12 days ago   |   By NESN

The Boston Celtics had more than four months to put a game plan together, but this certainly wasn't what they wanted to came up with - at least we hope not.
Before the Celtics could even take in the sights and sounds as they stepped on the floor to face the Milwaukee Bucks, NBA superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo and teammate Khris Middleton were storming up and down the floor.
The Bucks scored the first 19 points of the game, technically, claiming a 17-2 lead as the lone Celtics' basket was on a weird defensive rebound which the Bucks put in their own hoop.
It took less than four minutes for...

Brad Stevens Encouraged Despite Celtics Dropping First Game After NBA Restart

12 days ago   |   By NESN

It wasn't the final result the Boston Celtics were hoping for Friday night, but head coach Brad Stevens certainly was optimistic following the team's 119-112 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks from the Walt Disney World campus.
Stevens, while talking to reporters on a video call from Orlando, Fla., expressed there were more positives than negatives in the contest, Boston's first since the NBA season was suspended in mid-March.
“... Our compete level was good, and there's a lot of good things to build off of and a lot of things we can learn from,” Stevens said, as seen on NBC Sports Boston's...

Celtics Notes: Why Giannis Antetokounmpo Avoided Foul Call On ‘Hostile Act' Review

12 days ago   |   By NESN

The Boston Celtics, twice, almost managed to play the final few minutes of Friday's game without Giannis Antetokounmpo on the floor.
But both times a review bailed out the Milwaukee Bucks star, which was a not insignificant development in the Celtics' 119-112 loss in their first seeding game.
With 2:30 left to play, the Celtics down 107-105 and Antetokounmpo playing with five fouls, he sprinted to defend Gordon Hayward, but ended up barreling right into Daniel Theis, elbowing the C's big man's stomach and forcing him to hunch over in pain. The referees stopped play to review the collision...

Celtics Wrap: Giannis Antetokounmpo Goes Off For 36 Points As C's Fall To Bucks

12 days ago   |   By NESN

If nothing else, the first Boston Celtics game in over four months was thrilling.
Despite falling into an early 17-2 hole, the Celtics clawed back against the Bucks, but ultimately fell short as Milwaukee claimed a 119-112 win in the first seeding round game for both teams.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, somewhat unsurprisingly, undressed the Celtics, namely with a 16-point fourth quarter. He finished with 36 points, 15 rebounds and seven assists, leading the Bucks in all three categories. He was one of four Bucks to post double-figure scoring.
Five Celtics finished in double figures, with Marcus...
