Celtics: 32-24, 2nd in Atlantic Division

  • 111-93 loss to the Utah Jazz on Friday (2/19/16)
  • 121-101 win over the Denver Nuggets on Sunday (2/21/16)

It seems the rust has been shaken off by the Celtics after a sloppy first game back from the All-Star break. After not making a trade at the deadline for a superstar type player, the Celtics continue to dominate teams by using their defense to create offense. They forced 24 Nuggets turnovers creating 13 points off them on Sunday night, as well as 24 fast-break points to lead to a 20 point victory. This team’s chemistry has driven them all year to be a top contender in the East. Their next challenge will be in Minnesota against the Andrew Wiggins, Karl-Anthony Towns, and the Timberwolves on Monday, February 22.

Bruins: 32-21-6, 2nd in Atlantic Division

  • 3-2 overtime win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday (2/16/16)
  • 2-0 loss to the Nashville Predators on Thursday (2/18/16)
  • 7-3 win over the Dallas Stars on Saturday (2/20/16)

The game in Dallas, in my opinion, is a season-changer for the Bruins. After being down 3-1 at the end of the first period, the Bruins buckled down and played some defense. It all started 3:12 into the second period when Adam McQuaid got into a fight with Antoine Roussel. McQuaid landed a good strike on Roussel, knocking him to the ice, and electrifying the Bruins to score six unanswered goals. The second and third periods showed that this Bruins team can play fast and physical hockey against a powerhouse of the Western Conference. The Bruins next game is on Monday, February 22 against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Red Sox: Spring Training Update

Coming into Spring Training, we knew one of the storylines was going to be Hanley Ramirez switching from left field to first base. Ramirez has stated how his goal for this year is to win a Gold Glove Award while at first. He also states how confident he is in the video below:

Patriots: Off-Season Update

After re-signing offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia this week, the Patriots next off-season task is to extend the contracts of Dont’a Hightower, Chandler Jones, and Jamie Collins. All three of these players are free agents next year and Hightower, in particular, is the leader of this defense. He is the play caller and center for the Patriots top-10 defense.
