TRADE WINDS MAY BE BLOWIN'

NBA players who signed free-agent contracts in the summer can now be traded, which might open up the trade market for teams in search of roster upgrades or future assets. In the Celtics' case, that means they can now deal Aron Baynes and Brad Wanamaker if they so choose . . . though there's no indication they have any intention of it.

JUST AS THEY'D HOPED

Robert Williams' recent improved play has come at just the right time for the Celts.

MY CHOICE

Speaking of Williams, he's weighed in on the nickname controversy.

LISTEN UP

Marcus Smart was mic'd up for Friday's romp over the Hawks. Here's the best of what he had to say.

The conversation -- certainly on our Celtics Talk Podcast -- is whether the Celtics' seven-game winning streak can be credited to their own improved play or a soft stretch of schedule. That soft stretch continues continue tonight when the 6-21 Hawks come to TD Garden.

STARTING TO GET SMART

Marcus Smart has been a double shot of espresso for a Celtics team that stumbled groggily through the first 20 games of the season. Boston is 7-0 since Smart and Marcus Morris were elevated to starting roles last month, and Smart’s impact isn’t lost on Kyrie Irving.  

WHAT A SHOT

Irving's clutch 3-point field goal against the Wizards on Wednesday night was from MUCH farther away than you think. 

WHAT'S IN A NAME?

Danny Ainge doesn't like the nickname that's been hung on Robert Williams, and Celtics Twitter has some great suggestions to replace Tim Lord.

NOT GOOD

Here's why the latest NBA trade rumor involving the Kings is bad news for the Celtics.

FOLLOW THE LEADER

Kyrie Irving is always working on his game, but this season he's taken a particular interest in another area -- his leadership. Irving has made it a point to be a more vocal leader for the C's, and people have begun to notice.

FOR EXAMPLE . . .

Kyrie's tough-love approach with Jaylen Brown seems to be working.

THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING

Making the playoffs in 2018 is still paying dividends for the Celtics.

MAKING THE GRADE . . . WITH HELP

There are advantages to being twins, and Marcus and Markieff Morris -- facing each other tonight when Marcus' Celtics play Markieff's Wizards -- certainly reaped the benefits growing up. Like taking tests for each other.
