    BOSTON (CBS) — The Milwaukee Bucks are not the Brooklyn Nets. The Celtics knew that going into the second round of the NBA playoffs on Sunday, but that concept was battered into Boston’s psyche over and over throughout a 101-89 drubbing in Game 1. After being the pummelers throughout the first round, the Celtics were the pummelees to start the Eastern Conference semis. The Bucks built a wall around the basket at TD Garden on Sunday afternoon, and the Celtics didn’t really seem interested in trying to break it down. Milwaukee’s big lineup of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Brook Lopez and Bobby Portis kept the paint on lockdown in Game 1, and the Celtics cowered at the perimeter for 50 of their 84 attempts. They made just 18 of those attempts in a rather woeful offensive display.

    Getty Jayson Tatum, Boston Celtics Jayson Tatum continued his current hot streak on March 6 as he dropped 54 points, leading the Boston Celtics to victory against Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets. This was Tatum’s fourth game regular-season game of scoring 50 or more points, which tied Larry Bird’s long-standing Boston Celtics record. At just 24-years-old, it’s clear that Tatum will soon surpass Bird and become the Celtic’s all-time leader in 50-point games throughout the regular season. It’s a small milestone, but an impressive one nonetheless. Jayson Tatum tied Larry Bird's #Celtics record with his fourth 50-point game.

    BOSTON (AP) — Jayson Tatum had 33 points, eight rebounds and seven assists to help the Boston Celtics rally in the second half and beat the Atlanta Hawks 107-98 on Tuesday night. Derrick White and Grant Williams each added 18 points off the bench. Marcus Smart finished with 16 points and four assists.

    BOSTON (CBS) – The makeshift patios along Hanover Street in Boston’s North End became a very popular options during the pandemic. So popular that the city wants to allow restaurants to set up outside again. But not everyone is on board.

Some pushed back against the proposal, arguing it impacts their quality of life and makes traffic in the area worse. “I’m visually impaired. So my comments are not about driving or parking. My comments are about walking. Hanover Street is the main street,” said North End resident Mary McGee, who has lived in the area for 48 years. “During the outdoor dining, it is almost impossible for me to walk on the sidewalk.” But city officials say they’ll be stepping up enforcement to make sure everyone is following the rules.

    BOSTON (CBS) – Boston firefighters are among the city employees who have to provide documentation on their vaccination status Friday, but instead they’re fighting back, calling the mayor anti-labor. “We deserve to be treated better and deserve to be treated fairly,” said Edward Kelly, president of the International Association of Firefighters. The union says their contract allows weekly testing for firefighters who refuse to get vaccinated, an option eliminated by Boston Mayor Michelle Wu who says the first dose has to be administered by Monday.

    BOSTON (AP) — Workers started removing the last tents Wednesday morning from a once-sprawling homeless encampment at a Boston intersection known as Mass and Cass. New Mayor Michelle Wu had pledged by Wednesday to get housing for people living in tents near the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue and Melnea Cass Boulevard. Wu acknowledged that it may take more than a day to remove some of the remaining tents. “Our goal from the beginning here was to take a different approach, one that was really grounded in the root causes of homelessness and the crises that people are living with here,” Wu, who took office in November, said at the scene. Police were also at the scene Wednesday, but Wu and other city officials have said that they do not want to criminalize homelessness, and that officers were there to keep the peace. The city has approached the encampment as a humanitarian and public health crisis because many of its residents were drawn by methadone clinics and social services in the area and were considered vulnerable to trafficking and other dangers....
    BOSTON (CBS) — Starbucks workers in two Boston stores are pushing to unionize after workers saw a win in Buffalo. The stores are on Commonwealth Avenue and Harvard Street.

View the original article to see embedded media.BOSTON – Framber Valdez began the game with a statement. He threw the Boston Red Sox 12 consecutive sinkers to start Game 5 of the American League Championship Series on Wednesday, after which he and the Astros were back in the dugout with a 1-2-3 inning in the books. Why open the game without even a whiff of mystery or deception? “That’s the pitch he feels most comfortable throwing strikes,” says Houston catcher Martin Maldonado. Valdez typically throws his sinker 92.5 mph. These sinkers were angrier. They were zipping along at 94, 95, even 96 mph. Better still, the sinker slithered away from the barrels of the Boston bats with late, darting movement. Maldonado was so impressed by the opening dozen sinkers he asked the analytics managers...
    NEW YORK (WABC) -- As the nation prepares for the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, a Massachusetts man is honoring the flight attendants on board the hijacked planes."Every time I look at their pictures, it's like yesterday," said former flight attendant Paulie Veneto.Veneto is planning on pushing a beverage cart from Logan International Airport in Boston to Ground Zero in New York to honor the crewmembers."I could walk to New York. I could run to New York. I could do things everybody else does, but I'm going to do something flight attendants do," he said.For two months before 9/11, Veneto worked on Flight 175 and worked side by side with some of the victims."Of course we were all impacted, but us in Boston where these planes left, we were really impacted," he said.The horrors of that day started a nearly 15-year battle with opiate addiction that almost ended his life.Veneto, 62, is using his more than 200-mile journey to raise money for the victims' families and their foundations and collect donations for those struggling with addiction."Sept. 11...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Ime Udoka couldn’t be happier that his first head coaching gig in the NBA is with a franchise like the Boston Celtics. Introduced by the C’s as the new man in charge of the bench on Monday, Udoka said that Boston was the most attractive opening this summer, thanks to the franchise’s collective vision to bring home Banner 18, and the fact that the Celtics have a pair of rising stars in Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. But while he was all smiles during his introductory press conference, Udoka made it clear that it’s not going to be all sunshine and lollipops when the team hits the floor together. The 43-year-old Udoka spent his playing career on the back end of each roster that he was on, and he had to fight for everything. He was a hard-nosed player on both offense and defense, and always connected with players that he shared the floor with, setting the stage for his future in coaching. After spending the last decade as an assistant coach, he’s going to make sure...
    BOSTON (CBS) – Taking it to the streets is not just a campaign slogan. Volunteers were canvassing and leafleting Boston neighborhoods encouraging residents to turn out for a mobile vaccination clinic at Franklin Park on Saturday. “As we know there’s a history of mistrust in Black and brown communities, they’re afraid,” said Muhammad Ahmad, who works with the Black Boston Covid-19 Coalition which is pushing to get more people vaccinated in communities of color in Boston.

She estimates at least 65 percent of Blacks and Latinos in the city of...

    BOSTON (CBS) — The Red Sox’ search for starting pitching is going international. The team is reportedly going to make a hard push to sign Japanese starter Tomoyuki Sugano, who was posted by the Yomiuri Giants on Tuesday. With a super thin starting rotation at the moment, the Red Sox will be “aggressive” in their pursuit of the Japanese hurler, according to The Boston Sports Journal’s Sean McAdam. With Sugano now posted by the Giants, any Major League team can sign him after paying a release fee to Yomiuri. Boston will not be alone, as the San Francisco Giants, San Diego Padres and New York Yankees are also expected to make a run at Sugano, according to MLB.com’s John Morosi. Some scouts are putting the 31-year-old right behind reigning NL Cy Young winner Trevor Bauer in this year’s free agent market. Sugano won the Sawamura Award in both 2017 and 2018, given to the best pitching in the Nippon Professional Baseball League. He went 14-2 with a 1.97 ERA and 131 strikeouts in 137.1 innings for the Giants last season,...
    BOSTON (CBS/AP) – Columbus Day is Monday and it’s still a federal holiday but there has been a growing movement to have it replaced. Columbus Day marks Christopher Columbus’ discovery of the Americas in 1492. But several states, counties and cities are celebrating Indigenous Peoples’ Day instead Monday. Columbus was one of the first Europeans in the New World, credited by many for discovering America. However, critics say his trip began the trans-Atlantic slave trade. Columbus is also criticized for his violent treatment and killing of Native Americans, who see him as a racist. That’s led to the push to rename the second Monday in October Indigenous People’s Day. In Massachusetts, Cambridge and Somerville have adopted the holiday. On Saturday, the North American Indian Center of Boston marched through parts of the city demanding the Mayor and City Council end the annual celebration of Columbus Day. The group also wants Christopher Columbus Park in Boston to be renamed and all Columbus statues in the city removed. The statue of Columbus that stood in the Boston park was removed in June...

Garrabrant / National Basketball Association / Getty The Boston Celtics came out flying in Game 5 and didn't look back while steamrolling the Toronto Raptors in a 111-89 victory. Boston's swarming defense kept Toronto from establishing any offensive rhythm. The Raptors managed just 11 points in the first quarter and were unable to climb out of the early hole. "We were really active," Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said postgame, according to Chris Forsberg of NBC Sports Boston. "We were just trying to play hard, as hard as we could. ... We were playing with great purpose. You could feel that from the get-go." Celtics star Jaylen Brown bounced back from an off shooting night in Game 4, scoring 27 points on 10-of-18 shooting. Meanwhile, Kemba Walker delivered on his promise to be more aggressive, scoring 21 points with seven...
    The Boston Celtics pushed the Toronto Raptors to the brink of elimination with a Game 5 massacre. To start their second-round playoff series in the East, the Boston Celtics convincingly took the first two games. Then, the Toronto Raptors struck back by eking out a Game 3 win in the last 0.5 seconds before tying up the series in commanding fashion in Game 4. Jaylen Brown’s levitation special over OG Anunoby’s head was emblematic of Game 5 in one highlight: Jaylen Brown INCOMING! ???? pic.twitter.com/YIm7Af37vH — NBA on TNT (@NBAonTNT) September 7, 2020 MVP: Jaylen Brown There’s no way around it: Jaylen Brown absolutely stunk in Game 4. While he scored 14 points, they came on an abysmal 4-of-18 shooting performance, including 2-of-11 from 3-point range. It was no wonder he finished as a team-worst minus-14. For a guy who has been excellent for the Celtics since the team arrived in Orlando, it was critical that he bounced back in Game 5, especially with momentum up for grabs for the rest of the series. Brown rose to the occasion...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Friday night’s Game 3 against the 76ers was a lot more uncomfortable than the previous two games for the Celtics. But Boston made the plays it needed to in the end, closing the game on a 10-0 run and escaped with a 102-94 victory over Philadelphia. Boston now owns a commanding 3-0 series lead. Kemba Walker led the charge for Boston with 24 points, while Jaylen Brown added 21 in his 42 minutes. Jayson Tatum never really looked comfortable after picking up three fouls in the first quarter, but finished with 15 points on 6-for-19 shooting. As he tends to do, Marcus Smart made the biggest play of the night, swiping a pass late to start a coast to coast drive by Brown, who was fouled as he put his layup in. The bucket and free throw gave Boston a 95-94 lead, and started that 10-0 closing run for Boston. HUGE PLAY. pic.twitter.com/1jCi05C9Wa — Boston Celtics (@celtics) August 22, 2020 Walker added to that lead with a nice step back jumper with 1:05 left, and the...
