Our Editor's Take

Locked On Celtics - Daily Podcast On The Boston Celtics With Rainin' J's gives fans regular news and opinions on this famous franchise. Bill Russell, Larry Bird, and John Havlicek are some of the superstars who have worn Celtics green. In recent years, the storied team has minted Gen-Z stars Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.

John Karalis hosts the podcast. John covers the Celtics beat for Boston Sports Journal. He is the author of the book The Boston Celtics All-Time All-Stars: The Best Players at Each Position for the C's. He brings both a reporter's and a fan's perspective to the podcast.

The "Raining J's" in the title refers to the original hosts of the show. They all had J's in their name. In addition to John, Sam "Jam" Packard and Jay King cohosted the show. The other two hosts left the show in 2019, leaving John as the sole "J" in the title.

Locked On Celtics has recaps and analysis of each game. During the playoffs, the podcast has crossover episodes. These episodes feature Locked On hosts who cover the Celtics' opponents. The podcast also features Mailbag Mondays. Every week, the podcast answers questions about the team.

The podcast explores topics such as the state of the Celtics' rivalry with the Los Angeles Lakers. The hosts have debated whether to eliminate the corner three-pointer. On a lighter note, they have assigned Simpsons characters to the Celtics. John also plays "what if" games. What if Ime Udoka had not managed to get himself fired as Celtics coach? What if the Celtics had kept Desmond Bane rather than send him to Memphis as part of a draft pick trade?

Sometimes, other people join the conversation here. Guests on Locked On Celtics have included Tom Westerholm. He is a Celtics writer for Boston.com. Comedian Josh Gondelman has come on the podcast to talk about his Celtics fandom.

Locked On Celtics - Daily Podcast On The Boston Celtics With Rainin' J's has new shows every weekday throughout the year.

They were only up two halfway through the third quarter, but they ended up winning by almost 30 because of a monster fourth quarter, surviving a Luka Doncic triple-double. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal gets into why the patience is so important for this team, the star power that fueled the win, the guys who filled the gaps, and Xavier Tillman's contribution. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!Stitch FixStyle that makes you feel as good as you look—get started today at StitchFix.com/LOCKEDON GrammarlyWhen it comes to writing, Grammarly is there to support you from start to finish.

Boston Celtics 3-point shooting & Joe Mazzulla's real philosophy
Celtics fans are still buzzing about Boston's win over Philadelphia with only five 3-pointers, so we are taking a deeper dive into the Mazzulla-ball philosophy and what the Celtics are really trying to accomplish, and whether this is an evolution of philosophy or the players. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal and Tom Westerholm are also answering mailbag questions about the shooting, including whether they adjust to the defense or their own performances, and whether they can win regularly without the 3-pointer. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!Stitch FixStyle that makes you feel as good as you look—get started today at StitchFix.com/LOCKEDON GrammarlyWhen it comes to writing, Grammarly is there to support you from start to finish.

Boston Celtics attack Philadelphia 76ers, win ninth straight
This was a weird Celtics game where the Celtics didn't take or make many 3-pointers but they still managed to win going away, beating the Sixers by 18 and holding them below 100. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal gets into how the Celtics managed to score a lot without the 3-pointers and why this is really what Mazzulla ball is. Also, a look at the standings and a fun little stat about the Cavs not gaining any ground on the Celtics. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!Stitch FixStyle that makes you feel as good as you look—get started today at StitchFix.com/LOCKEDONGrammarlyWhen it comes to writing, Grammarly is there to support you from start to finish.

Jayson Tatum's MVP case: How real is the Boston Celtics star's chance?
Jayson Tatum's case for MVP is gaining momentum, but does he have a real chance to win it? Is the case for "best player on the best team" enough for him to win it? John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal and Tom Westerholm discuss why the argument for him isn't really about him at all, why the case against him actually makes him more valuable to the Celtics, and why his play this season could be setting him up for future MVP wins.  Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!Stitch FixStyle that makes you feel as good as you look—get started today at StitchFix.com/LOCKEDONGrammarlyWhen it comes to writing, Grammarly is there to support you from start to finish.

Larry Bird vs. Anthony Edwards: All-Star competition & the evolution of NBA basketball
Larry Bird said it was important for everyone to compete when the best basketball players in the world get together. Anthony Edwards said the last thing guys will do is compete during what's supposed to be a break. John Karalis and Tom Westerholm get into both sides to see who's making a good point, why the All-Star game is probably dead as we know it, and why it's not a bad thing for things to go this way no matter how bad it looked over the weekend.Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!GrammarlyWhen it comes to writing, Grammarly is there to support you from start to finish. With one click, you can easily and easily brainstorm, rewrite, and reply with suggestions based on your context and goals. Go to grammarly.com/PODCAST to download for FREE today. NissanOur friends at Nissan have a lineup of SUV’s with the capabilities to take your adventure to the next level. Take the Nissan Rogue, Nissan Pathfinder, or Nissan Armada and go find your next big adventure.

Mailbag: Jaylen Brown booed, Jayson Tatum MVP, Larry Bird, & Jacque Vaughn fired
We open up the mailbag to answer questions about why Jaylen Brown keeps getting booed and whether he'd do well to embrace a villain role. Also, is Stephen A. Smith right about Jayson Tatum being the MVP frontrunner? Where has Larry Bird been and why isn't he around the Celtics? John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal gets into all of that, as well as the potential to get back some former Celtics, getting all five starters some postseason awards, the little things players do that absolutely amaze me, and why the Brooklyn Nets fired Jacque Vaughn.Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!GrammarlyWhen it comes to writing, Grammarly is there to support you from start to finish. With one click, you can easily and easily brainstorm, rewrite, and reply with suggestions based on your context and goals. Go to grammarly.com/PODCAST to download for FREE today. NissanOur friends at Nissan have a lineup of SUV’s with the capabilities to take your adventure to the next level. Take the Nissan Rogue, Nissan Pathfinder, or Nissan Armada and go find your next big adventure.

Can anyone catch Boston Celtics? Should they fear anyone in playoffs?

Can anyone catch Boston Celtics? Should they fear anyone in playoffs?
The Celtics are at the break and they have a pretty commanding lead. It's looking pretty good for them to hold onto that top seed, barring anything catastrophic. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal and Tom Westerholm discuss why this is a team that should be appreciated, even with their flaws. Instead of worrying about what they might not do, appreciate what they are doing. Plus, with the six-game lead in the East with such little time left, can they be caught? And is there any reason to be afraid of any playoff matchups?Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!NissanOur friends at Nissan have a lineup of SUV’s with the capabilities to take your adventure to the next level. Take the Nissan Rogue, Nissan Pathfinder, or Nissan Armada and go find your next big adventure.

Boston Celtics beat Brooklyn Nets by 50 for Joe Mazzulla's 100th win
The Celtics woke up Wednesday and chose violence on Valentine's Day, destroying the Brooklyn Nets by 50 in a wire-to-wire, no let up blowout win. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal gets into that, the casually great Jayson Tatum game, Kristaps Porzings playing great before tweaking an ankle, Derrick White, and then Jordan Walsh getting surprise run. Plus, Joe Mazzulla gets his 100th win, and John thinks it's all about his approach to the team's mentality that makes him very effective.Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!NissanOur friends at Nissan have a lineup of SUV’s with the capabilities to take your adventure to the next level. Take the Nissan Rogue, Nissan Pathfinder, or Nissan Armada and go find your next big adventure.

Jayson Tatum scores 41, Boston Celtics hold off Brooklyn Nets

Jayson Tatum scores 41, Boston Celtics hold off Brooklyn Nets
The Celtics were attacking early and then Jayson Tatum went off to build a big lead. He had 41 points and 14 rebounds and it looked like Boston was going to cruise, but Brooklyn made a late run to cut the lead down. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal gets into all that, why the Celtics looked like they were experimenting a lot in that game, how Jaylen Brown did in his stint as the primary initiator in the fourth quarter, and why the first quarter was the best evidence for Joe Mazzulla's basketball math.Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!NissanOur friends at Nissan have a lineup of SUV’s with the capabilities to take your adventure to the next level. Take the Nissan Rogue, Nissan Pathfinder, or Nissan Armada and go find your next big adventure.

Mailbag: Gritty Boston Celtics, keeping the core together, Jayson Tatum getting fouled, and more
This week's mailbag gets into a lot, like some grittiness being unlocked thanks to the Celtics win in Miami, playing down (or up) to their competition, the state of the defense, and feelings about playoff opponents. Also, John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal gets into how long this core can stay together, how Jayson Tatum can draw more fouls, and Celtics PA guy, Eddie Paladino.Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!NissanOur friends at Nissan have a lineup of SUV’s with the capabilities to take your adventure to the next level. Take the Nissan Rogue, Nissan Pathfinder, or Nissan Armada and go find your next big adventure.

Boston Celtics, Jayson Tatum, Kristaps Porzingis, hold on in intense game vs Miami Heat
The Celtics narrowly held on in a very intense finish against the Miami Heat, finding a way to make the couple of plays they needed to win the game. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal explains why this was a great opportunity for the Celtics to get reps against a tough team in a playoff atmosphere, and it's something Joe Mazzulla loved. Plus, why the coaches use a game like this as a teaching tool, hoping to get some valuable film for down the road, and why the first half of this game was almost perfect for the Celtics.Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!NissanOur friends at Nissan have a lineup of SUV’s with the capabilities to take your adventure to the next level. Take the Nissan Rogue, Nissan Pathfinder, or Nissan Armada and go find your next big adventure.

It wasn't pretty, but the Celtics got 69 combined points from Tatum and Porzingis to get a shaky win over the Washington Wizards. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal gets into why it's fair to question the effort, but also fine for the Celtics to downplay it as a concern. Plus, the one thing this game shows to prove Boston is a true contender.

Boston Celtics add Jaden Springer at trade deadline & Knicks now biggest challenger?
Brad Stevens made another move for the Celtics, bringing in Jaden Springer from the Philadelphia 76ers in a move that confused Philly fans and might prove to be a pretty good long-term play for Boston. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal and Tom Westerholm discuss that move and how it sets Boston up for a pretty good supporting cast around Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and everyone else down the road. Also, have the Knicks vaulted above everyone else to become Boston's biggest challenger?Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!NissanOur friends at Nissan have a lineup of SUV’s with the capabilities to take your adventure to the next level. Take the Nissan Rogue, Nissan Pathfinder, or Nissan Armada and go find your next big adventure. Shop NissanUSA.com.  LinkedInLinkedIn Jobs helps you find the qualified candidates you want to talk to, faster.

Boston Celtics ride Derrick White, Kristaps Porzingis past Trae Young, Atlanta Hawks
The Celtics got a less-than-stellar defensive effort but still managed to get past the Atlanta Hawks thanks to monster nights from Derrick Whtie (especially in the fourth quarter) and Kristaps Porzingis. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal gets into the game, why Trae Young getting the All-Star nod over White is a travesty, and then some more on the Xavier Tillman trade.-- apologies for the technical difficulties that significantly delayed this podcast today.Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!NissanOur friends at Nissan have a lineup of SUV’s with the capabilities to take your adventure to the next level. Take the Nissan Rogue, Nissan Pathfinder, or Nissan Armada and go find your next big adventure. Shop NissanUSA.com.  LinkedInLinkedIn Jobs helps you find the qualified candidates you want to talk to, faster.
