 ๐Ÿ€Celtics: Well, that escalated quickly. After Tuesdayโ€™s 123โ€“109 loss to the Brooklyn Nets eliminated the Cโ€™s from the playoffs, the front office wasted no time making offseason moves. Yesterday morning, team president Danny Ainge announced his retirement and his replacement: now former Celtics head coach Brad Stevens.

  • That leaves the question of who the new coach will be. A handful of names have been floated, but our pick is San Antonio Spurs assistant Becky Hammon, who would be the first female NBA head coach if the Cโ€™s take our advice. Your move, Brad.   

๐Ÿ’Bruins: With the Cโ€™s eliminated, Bostonโ€™s spring title hopes (professional that is, congrats BC!) are riding on the Bโ€™s. Theyโ€™ll take on the NY Islanders tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET in Game 3 of their tied second round series. One positive sign: forward Craig Smith โ€” who missed the Game 2 loss with a lower-body injury โ€” is expected to return. Canโ€™t wait.

โšพ๏ธRed Sox: The Sox continue to struggle, suffering their third straight loss at the hands of the Houston Astros last night. Theyโ€™ll look to avoid the series sweep in todayโ€™s 2:10 p.m. ET matchup, before heading to the Bronx to face the NY Yankees in a three-game weekend series. Yankees, and we cannot stress this enough, suck.
