Boston Celtics Daily Dish: April 9, 2014


Good morning, Boston Celtics fans -welcome to hump day!

Tonight, Boston plays its fifth-to-last game of the season against the Atlanta Hawks.  I know it’s been a tough year, watching the Celtics lose so many games, especially all of the single-digit losses that drain your spirit.  There is help coming, however, in the form of two first-round draft picks and I suspect a rather significant free agent acquisition this summer, so bear with Boston – it won’t be this bad next year!

(I say with fingers crossed . . . .)

When it comes to crunch time, this year’s Boston Celtics don’t really have any good options to turn to when they need a big basket.  [ESPN]  Which is why I am more and more open to the idea of Boston grabbing a clutch shooting guard either in the draft or via free agency this summer.

Thanks, and check back in with me as I give you all you need to know about tonight’s Celtics-Hawks game!
