Bucks major block to Celtics Title hopes

 Barring a miracle, it seems the Milwaukee Bucks will have home court advantage throughout the post-season. With a record of 54-21, they are atop the Standings as of this date. The Celtics have battled Milwaukee twice this season, are are 1-1 against each other. Boston's win came at TD Garden with The Green having a full crew on board . The Bucks were without Kris Middleton. The Celtics shot very well - 59% from the field and 49% on 3-pointers. The Jay Team combined for 70 points with very-accurate shooting. Boston's overtime loss occurred on the road in Milwaukee , with a final score of 131-1254 . They were without four starters, Marcus Smart, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Al Horford . Milwaukee had a full roster, including Middleton. The Celtics' shooting was mediocre, at best,  hitting 46% on from the field and 34% on treys. The two Eastern powerhouses meet for the third matchup this Thursday in Milwaukee. A Celtics win on foreign turf would be a confidence-builder

Celtics look beyond terrible in a horrible loss to the Wizards.

  First Quarter Moments C's step up on D for the first play of the game. Which leads to a easy JB bucket in transition. I expect plenty of easy hoops tonight! JT just abused some dude getting to the cup! JT just abused homeboy yet again! Dude is just too little to guard JT!  These Wizards uniforms are absolute garbage! JT with the hammer DUNK off the pass from Marcus! Als offense has been hit or miss lately. C's need to wake the heck up and blow these guys off the dang floor.  MB is in and making an impact already! C's playing to the level of their opponents which makes me sick. Wake up please! Nice defensive stand, causes a shot clock violation. We need to make a run to finish off this quarter. MB for threeeeeeeee!!! That's my dude right there.  C's play decent D and give up an offensive rebound. Clean it up guys! Getting beat by nobodies is unacceptable... Listening to Scal as this game progresses to gets worse is annoying! Stop playing with your food and feast! P

Jaylen Brown: "Never too high, never too low" on accolades or criticism

  Never expect an outburst of euphoria or despair from Jaylen Brown . I have the utmost respect for a guy that never gets too high on the good stuff - nor too low on the bad .  He was just named Eastern Conference Player of the Week and fans won't be seeing any celebratory cheers from Brown. "Just doing my job" is the type of response we can expect. Jaylen Brown has been named East Player of the Week for the 3rd time in his career — Taylor Snow (@taylorcsnow) March 27, 2023 The same can be said about his low-key response to the cheers from Boston fans for his perofrmance on Sunday night . TD Garden houses some tough fans, and I would guess that Jaylen was inwardly moved by the standing ovation - despite the lack of emotion. Jaylen Brown had an unexpressive reaction to the standing ovation he received from Celtics fans Sunday night: — NESN (@NESN) March 27, 2023  Brown's name constantly surfaces when major potential

Jaylen Brown posing legit challenge to Jayson Tatum as "Team ALPHA"

 Just when I thought Jayson Tatum was the undisputed "ALPHA" of the Boston Celtics, the other member of the Jay Team seems to be quietly challenging Tatum's status. He rendered his thoughts on being a team leader versus simply a major role player : “Obviously, our goal is to win the championship. That’s, I think, what everybody is focused on,” (Jaylen) Brown tells me. “Me, I feel like I still have so many more limits to tap individually. To be better, to be a better leader, to be a better player, et cetera. As for now, I’m just playing my role on the team to help us get back to do what we got to do. So, nothing wrong with being a part of a team and doing your job. That’s how I look at it.” Over the last eight games, Boston has a 6-2 record , and Brown has played a major role in that span. Take a look at the statistical comparison over those eight games: Brown: 36.1 MPG - 31.1 PPG - 6.9 RPG - 4.0 APG - 54.8% FG - 41.0 3s Tatum:  36.6 MPG - 28.1 PPG - 9.3 RPG - 4.3 APG - 4

Spurs Celtics on a beautiful Sunday evening.

  First Quarter Moments C's are coming out..... Flat!  JB fixes that by getting to the rack and scoring! JB once again scores inside! JB yet again! Tonight is going to be a JB game, but it needs to be a team effort! Marcus Smart with a globe trotter dribble scores inside.  C's aren't playing any defense right now... Do I have to say it defense wins championships! Figure it out fellas. If they don't put in the work on D these Spurs are gonna beat them.  JB is man amongst boys tonight! JAM! Sam I am for three, he's found his stroke C's fans. Playoff weapon locked and loaded!  He's a guy that both JT and JB look for regularly. Expect a few big shots from him in the post season!  Rob the Lob grabs the board and scores!  Once again the C's are playing down to the level of their competition. I'm tired of seeing that. They better blow the doors off the next few quarters.  Second Quarter Moments This Spurs team sucks and the C's are getting run off the f

Edging Eighty: Gym lessons

 Several days ago, I witnessed an older man become airborne in a gym as he tripped over an object - hitting the floor hard enough to break some ribs. It was his second serious accident in the gym in the short period of time after joining. H e broke one of the prime rules of survival - in gyms and the world, generally. BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS One other quick point about gyms. With weight-management time right around the corner, remember that endless cardio (treadmill, elliptical, etc.) won't get you lighter and leaner. It is a poor use of your time and energy. Alter your nutrition to lose weight and uise the gym for overall health and well-being. 

The 2-bigs starting lineup may be on its way out

 Celtics coach, Joe Mazzulla , has certainly given his 2-bigs starting lineup of Al Horford and Rob Williams a valid shot in the regular season, but don't expect to see much of it going forward. Frankly, Derrick White has been a true shot-in-the-arm for Boston this season . He plays hard-and-fast at both ends and now works nicely with Marcus Smart in the backcourt. His presence in the starting lineup allows Smart to do what he does best, often covering the oppositions top player. White ranks 5th in minutes per game at 28.3 MPG . And he has started 62-of-the-74 games he has played this season (84%). Rob Williams is 8th in minutes at 23.8 MPG - while starting 18-of-the-30 games in which he has particiupated.  (60%). Williams III coming off the bench serves as a disruptor , as evidenced by his eight boards, three steals and three blocks in the Celtics victory over Indiana last night . Having Derrick set the fast pace right out of the gate - and watching Rob enter the game and wrea
