Daily Noontime: Friday, February 14th, 2020


By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeNation

It’s Friday or as we call it, ‘Fri-Yay’ – woo!

It is BRUTAL outside today, so make sure to bring an extra hat and gloves when you go out for a second (or third) cup of coffee. Luckily, this cold weather won’t last long as Boston’s mild-winter returns Sunday with temperatures falling just a tad bit short of 50 degrees.

Have a wonderful weekend – make sure to do something special today for Valentine’s Day and remember to smile, laugh, and eat some chocolate!

The Boston Sports Scoreboard

  • Jayson Tatum netted a game-high 39 points last night as the Boston Celtics outlasted the Los Angeles Clippers, 141-133, in double-overtime. With the win, the Celtics have won seven of their last eight contests, and enter the NBA All-Star break with some serious momentum.
  • The Boston Bruins will look to continue their impressive play from a few nights ago when they host the Detroit Red Wings tomorrow for a 1 p.m. face-off. They will then head to Manhattan on Sunday to face the New York Rangers for a 3:30 p.m. puck drop.

VIDEO: Should The Boston Celtics Initiate A Trade?

By NoontimeSports.com 

The Boston Celtics concluded the first half of their 66-game schedule on Wednesday evening against the Oklahoma City Thunder, who defeated the Green and White, 119-104.

The Celtics will now enjoy a few days off due to the NBA All-Star game on Sunday before returning to the hardwood next week when they travel to Cleveland. However, Boston certainly needs something or someone to spark their offense and defense, who’s won 15 of 32 contests thus far. Yet, what should the Celtics do? Should they rely on team president Danny Ainge to find their savior or keep things intact?

What are your thoughts on the Celtics? Would adding a new piece to the puzzle help Doc Rivers‘ crew reach the NBA Finals?

* In March and April, NCAA basketball fans will get to enjoy more of the tournament on other TV stations other than CBS.
