  • Bulls vie for third straight win as Celtics visit

    Back-to-back victories may not seem like the biggest of accomplishments, but in a season in which the Chicago Bulls are experiencing plenty of growing pains and toll-taking injuries, even small successes carry some weight. After a weekend in which Chicago managed to snap a 10-game losing streak and hold on for a pair of closely contested wins, the heavy lifting continues on Monday when the Bulls host the Boston Celtics at the United Center. The Celtics (23-5) boast the league's best record while the Bulls (5-20) possess the league's worst mark.

  • Gordon Hayward on playing this season: “It’s definitely in the back of my mind”

    Boston Celtics forward Gordon Hayward has been going through some grueling physical therapy to aid his recovery from a horrible leg injury he suffered during his first game with the team back in October. Hayward wound up breaking his ankle, likely putting him out for the season. Hayward is making progress in his recovery — he recently was able to take his walking boot off and go for a smaller ankle brace.

  • Stevens impressed by Hayward's comments, but doesn't expect a return this year

     In an interview with the Boston Globe's Adam Himmelsbach, Celtics wing player Gordon Hayward touched on several topics including the possibility of him returning to action this season. "So I'm making sure that if I come back, I'm 1,000 percent confident in myself and my leg," Hayward told the Globe. While Hayward's focus remains on improving enough to where the possibility of him returning this season is more than just hopeful thinking, Celtics head coach Brad Stevens reiterated that the Celtics are not making any plans for a Hayward return this season.

  • Big game or not, Marcus Smart is focused on Celtics getting the win

    "Marcus Smart was like Kyle Korver out there." – Detroit Pistons head coach/president of basketball operations Stan Van Gundy on Nov. 27. Smart is no Kyle Korver, but the impact the 23-year-old can make on the game is undeniable. Boston (22-5) will need some of that today when they take on the Detroit Pistons who are the only team to hang a double-digit loss on the Celtics this season.
