How Good Can Robert Williams Be?

The Celtics blew out the undermanned Nets on Wednesday night 149-115, the most points scored by a Celtics team since 1992. Among the top performers was Robert Williams, who finished with a career-high 18 points on perfect shooting from the field and the free throw line to go along with 3 blocks.

NBA Picks (August 6th)

Back to back 4-2 days and I still haven’t had a losing record for even a single day since my pick series started, which honestly makes 4-2 feel like a disappointment. My overall record now stands at 27-7. Here are my picks for today’s slate of games. I’m feeling pretty good about these. There’s a lot of close lines, so at least a few of these games should be close, competitive and entertaining.

NBA Picks (August 5th)

It was a weird day in the NBA. The Nets beat the Bucks, the Suns beat the Clippers and the Heat beat the Celtics despite Jimmy Butler being a late scratch from the lineup. Still, I picked all of those games right, so I’m not making any excuses for my 4-2 record yesterday. That brings my record overall to 23-5. Today might be the hardest slate of games to pick I’ve seen yet. There’s a lot of big spreads and a lot of teams in unique situations. I’m not feeling optimistic about today’s picks, but I’ll do my best.

NBA Picks (August 4th)

A 6-0 day on Monday (my second undefeated day since this series started less than a week ago) puts my record at 19-3 ATS. I honestly didn’t expect to be doing this well, but I’ll keep this series going as long as I keep making great picks. Let’s hope for the best today.

NBA Picks (August 2nd)

After going 9-1 in my first picks article, (thanks, TJ Warren…) I decided perhaps it was a good idea to continue the series. Perhaps I have a knack for this. Here are my picks for all six August 2nd NBA games.

Every Member of the Celtics Has Chosen to Wear a Social Justice Message on Their Jersey

Nicole Yang of the Boston Globe is reporting that every Celtic will have an NBA pre-approved message on the back of their jersey in place of their last name for the NBA’s restart. The NBA and NBPA agreed to this initiative to give players the opportunity to promote change prior to finalizing their agreement to play in Orlando. Players made this request after some within in NBPA raised concerns about returning to play basketball amid significant social unrest in the country after the public and tragic deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.
