Quantcast


There were many memorable victories for the Celtics this season.

Out of their 40 wins a few really stick out. But what is their best?

The last-second buzzer-beater against Memphis at the Garden?

The early season W in Chicago without Rondo?

The second end of a back-to-back in Denver?

A victory down in the Big Easy?

Or what about Evan Turner's layup to beat Atlanta at home?

All are worthy of the accolade but one win really stands out...

January 22nd- Boston 90 Portland 89

The win in Portland was really the first step forward in the seasons' rejuvenation. The last-second three from Turner exemplified the 2014-2015 C's in a nutshell.

All out hustle from Jared Sullinger, while Tayshaun Prince, making a cameo for the Celts, battled for position in the paint, before the often overlooked Turner drained the game-winner:



The game showcased a double-double from Brandon Bass (13 points, 10 rebounds) and a solid contribution from Sullinger who finished with 17 points and nine rebounds.

The Celts would go on to go 26-14 after the win at the Rose Garden (now known as the Moda Center).
