Celtics at 7
The Celtics finished their season with a 25-57 record and, in the lottery standings, the fifth-worst record in the NBA (after losing a tie-breaker with the Jazz). Adam Kaufman hosted the “Celtics @ 7″ season wrap-up edition on Saturday morning, and recapped a long and difficult season.
The Celtics are down to their final three games of the regular season following a 106-103 upset of the playoff-bound Bobcats on Friday night. Plenty went right for Boston, even without Rajon Rondo in the lineup because of a shin injury, but is that in the best interests of the organization down the stretch? Clearly not. Sometimes, a win can be a loss.
For the first time since the 2006-07 season, the Boston Celtics find themselves on the outside looking in on the NBA postseason, so all eyes are now pointed toward the draft.
“Celtics @ 7″ host Adam Kaufman opened Saturday’s show by talking about the defeat and how the road won’t get much better over the final six games.
Adam Kaufman started Saturday’s “Celtics @ 7″ with his thoughts on that debate, and said he also believes the Celts are in superior shape as compared to before Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen arrived.
The Celtics have lost six of seven games following Friday’s defeat in Brooklyn. Not lost in the lackluster performances of late has been the play of Avery Bradley and Rajon Rondo.
On Thursday night’s “Celtics at 7,” Adam Jones and Adam Kaufman try to figure out the future plans of the Boston Celtics.
“Celtics @ 7″ on Saturday welcomed the return of Avery Bradley after he played his first game on Friday’s loss to the Suns following 13 missed with an ankle injury.
On Monday night’s “Celtics At 7,” The Boston Globe’s Baxter Holmes joined 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Adam Jones to discuss Rajon Rondo.
This morning’s “Celtics @ 7″ (hopefully) wrapped up Rajon Rondo’s BirthdayGate controversy after some parting words from team president of basketball operations Danny Ainge this week with “Toucher and Rich”.
