  • Terry Rozier on Celtics' challenge: “Too talented, yeah. Too talented.”

    They were the alphas (along with Al Horford), the guys with the ball in their hands leading a team to the conference finals, and they liked it — these are young players trying to carve out a role (or, in Rozier's case, prove to other team's he's a starting point guard) and they didn't want to take a step back. But that's what had to happen with the return of Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward to the rotation. The result was a lack of a pecking order on offense, uncomfortable sacrifices, and precious little of the fluid play that got them within a game of the Finals a year ago.

  • Morris' tough love exactly what Celtics need now

    However, reflecting upon the incident he had with Jaylen Brown in the 115-99 loss at Miami on Thursday, there is absolutely no question that what we saw on that video was a brand of leadership from Morris that this Celtics team desperately needs. Kyrie Irving preaches patience when it comes to his youthful teammates all the time, while trying to balance that with still challenging them. And Al Horford is a respected veteran who is also a man of few words, preferring to instead lead by example.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns: 'He

    Karl-Anthony Towns is the leader of this Minnesota Timberwolves team which brings about a series of ups and downs, even more so when you're just 23 years old. He will be the first to acknowledge his approach to leadership has been influenced, arguably no one more than Celtics center Al Horford. Stars, studs, and duds from C's-Timberwolves Both Horford and Towns are from the Dominican Republic, one of the many bonds that connect one of the league's most consistent performers (Horford) with one of its brightest young stars (Towns).

  • Irving, Horford lead rally as Celtics beat Grizzlies 112-103

    Kyrie Irving didn't get off to a very good start, so he and the Boston Celtics made sure to finish with a flurry. Irving scored 22 of his 26 points in the second half, Al Horford converted a pair of late 3-pointers to finish with 18 points and the Celtics erased a 19-point, second-half deficit to beat the Memphis Grizzlies 112-103 on Saturday night. 'At the half, Kyrie just challenged all of us to be better,' Horford said of the difference after Boston trailed 64-47 at intermission.

  • Celtics will be without Robert Williams for rest of the trip

    Celtics will be without Robert Williams for rest of the trip originally appeared on nbcsportsboston.com The Celtics will be without rookie big man Robert Williams tonight in Memphis against the Grizzlies and for the New Year's Eve game against the Spurs in San Antonio, coach Brad Stevens told reporters on Saturday. With Aron Baynes still out with a broken left ring finger and Al Horford on a minutes restriction as he comes back from being out with a knee injury, the Celtics will be shorthanded in the frontcourt again. The Houston Rockets took advantage of that for a 54-38 rebounding edge on the first game of the trip, a 127-113 Boston loss Thursday.
