C's take a bite out of the Big Apple

 The C's are in New York tonight to play one of the more overrated teams in the league. The NBA is always trying to make New York relevant and personally I think it's garbage. The Knicks are no where near the Celtics when it comes to being a historic franchise. These primetime games take forever to start. Why not bump up the start time on these games? First Quarter ☘️ C's have their lineup of excellence out there tonight. Is it possible that tonight is JTs signature game at Madison Square Garden?!? JB opens us up with a pure three point shot in the bottom of the cup! C's will need to compete on each possession tonight. JB has been the spark to light the fire tonight. Jrue Holiday posts up Brunson and that will be a key tonight. Make him work on D because let's be honest he can't play D. Tire him out and those shots won't be falling at end of the game . I love how JT is attacking the rim tonight. Knicks have no answer for him inside. In all reality the C'

Breaks over...

C's are in Chicago to continue their journey towards Banner 18. No time for letting up, let's keep this train chugging.  1Q ☘️ Time to get back to business, and keep those wins coming. C's are cold, take it to the rack! Jrue finally gets the C's on the board with a corner three. Jrue has been deadly from the corners this season. That shot will be a huge weapon in the playoffs. What a pick and roll as JB finds KP for the JAM! After a slow start the C's are warming up. These Bulls really don't like to defend the three, so the C's better make them pay for it. JB is out here attacking that rim, that's what we need from him! DWhite hasn't missed a step as he continues blocking shots, making steals and scoring. He's truly the Swiss army knife of these Celtics. Just a multi facetted WEAPON! C's haven't missed a beat despite being off for the All Star break. C's lead after one and here we go!  2Q 🍀🍀 These Celtics continue to play efficientl

All Star Game Thoughts...

  Personally I remember All Star weekend and the game to be a must watch. Getting to see my basketball favorites, Bird and Jordan to name a few suit up and do amazing things. The games themselves had that edge to them. Guys wanted to win and they put that effort into it. Slam dunk contests had the cream of the crop. Jordan and Nique dueling and so many other special dunkers. The three point contests had Larry and him asking who was finishing second. There was an aura of greatness and it really was special to those guys to suit up and play.  There was one moment this weekend that made me smile. JT met Larry Joe Bird and his response afterwards was that of a little kid. That's how it should be honestly. I remember getting to shake Larry's hand when Magic was enshrined and I felt that same way.  These new All Star weekends just don't have that pizzazz anymore . The dunk contest has nothing left to offer and it's full of g league gimmicks that are well not worthy of our tim

What's up, Doc? Coach Rivers off to bad start in Milwaukee

  Doc Rivers took over the reins of the Milwaukee Bucks on January, 26, 2024 and things right now don't look too rosy. His team has a 3-7 record over the last 10 games, but last night's 113-110 loss to the lowly-and-understaffed Memphis Grizzlies was a shocker to many. The Bucks are 3-7 in the Doc Rivers era pic.twitter.com/raf6t8jFsm — NBACentral (@TheDunkCentral) February 16, 2024 Do the names Vince Williams, Santi Adams, Trey Jamison, Ziaire Williams or Jordan Goodwin ring a bell? They were the five starters for Memphis. How about G G Jackson and Lamar Stevens? They both played big minutes off the bench, with Jackson joining Ziaire for top scoring honors with 27 apiece . Celtics fans remember Stevens as the guy traded away to get Xavier Tillman to Boston. Lamar had 13 points and five rebounds in the contest. Things can only go upward for the coach that left the Celtics so as to not participate in a rebuild. So,  What's up, Doc? Here it comes - "Some guys in

C's welcome Brooklyn

The Celtics welcome the Brooklyn Nets in the final game before the break. These two teams went at it last night, so tonight should be interesting. JT went off for forty one last night. Will he do it again?! Tonight could be the 100th win for Coach Joe! He would be tied for the fifth fastest to reach that number of wins.  First Quarter ☘️ C's secure the tip and we are on our way. KP opens us up and nails a three! He can be deadly from outside, but I prefer him in the post. Early fashion statement from JT and DW as they rock the Jrue headband. C's start the game on nice 7-0 run. DWhite seems to be locked in early on. He's hitting his threes and scoring inside. He's been a huge cog in the success of the C's this season. I fully believe he will come up big in the post season. He will make a play that will keep him in Celtics lore forever. C's are playing pretty well tonight, there's no lull tonight. Not ideal to be missing JB tonight, but expect other guys to st

C's are in Brooklyn

  C's are in Brooklyn to take on the Nets, they will also see them tomorrow night as well. No KP due to a back contusion , I'm glad they are playing it safe with the Unicorn!  1st Q 🏀 C's need to be ready for the Nets best shot. We have a back and forth battle in the early minutes. C's need to attack the post, that's where they can exploit these Nets. Getting to see Jrue post up should be a regular thing we see. As Jrue posts up he finds a cutting DWhite for the layup. That play should be a staple for this team. I feel cutting is an underrated part of today's NBA. JB is looking very spry tonight. Getting to the cup with no resistance. C's have been very good at pushing the ball up the floor. These Nets don't want to play D, run em off the floor. The way Sam comes off screens is very direct and leads to very good looks. That rainbow three of his seems to hang up there quite a bit, yet when it swishes its beautiful. JT seems to be locked and loaded early

Celtics new addition, Jaden Springer, does one thing very well

 I'm not talking about shooting . Hitting 39% from the field (this season) and 21.6% on 3-pointers would be the first indicator. But Jaden Springer, a 21-year-old combo guard , can defend even some of the top players in the League. That is his strength, and he can pass the ball well enough to get on the court in limited minutes, maybe even in the post-season. At 6'4" and 202 pounds, he is in the same size category as Derrick White and Jrue Holiday , and has the potential, with seasoning, to transform into a reliable - or even proficient - NBA defender. That is why he is in Beantown ( per celticsblog.com's Bobby Manning ): "The Celtics wanted to acquire specialists, who could do one thing at a high level, (Joe) Mazzulla said, while trying to improve the players long-term." It will be interesting for Celtics fans to watch this kid perform and grow. He could end up, with Xavier Tillman , as a long-term answer for the Boston Celtics .
