What is the Celtics best chance to beat the Bucks?

Celtics fans are locked and loaded.  We had a nice win at home against Toronto and then we smashed a hapless NY Knicks team for our second win of the year. The NBA Championship is not decided in game 4 of the regular season but my guess is that Celtic fans will be ripping the roof off the Garden tonight.  This game will tell us where we stand.  And we all know it.

Let's look at what we need to do to beat the Bucks:


1. Stop Giannis.  How are we gonna do that?  The man is a beast.  But what Milwaukee doesnt know yet is that we have a surprise in store for the reigning MVP.


That's right.  Our new rookie strongman Grant Williams is going to get his chance to show people how it is done.  Stay in front of the Greak Freak.  Make him shoot outside.  And body the heck out of him when he tries to offensive rebound.  Giannis is not going to like what Grant puts on him.  That's all I'm gonna say.

2. Put Brook Lopez into pick and roll situations.  Rob Williams has made a ton of progress and he looks very comfortable with the ball in his hands right now.  He seems to have mastered the art of setting high screens and then rolling to the basket.  Expect multiple highlight level slams from our big man tonight.  Lopez is way too slow to hedge and then recover to stop Rob's roll to the hoop.  Plus it seems like Brook might have other things on his mind right now:

3. Our fans need to show up like it is the NBA Finals.  The game is gonna be a sellout of course.  Im talking about showing up

  1. Lopez will be bothered by.....nah. I'm not thinking a pro can be derailed by that Disney/Ebay stuff. What ever happened to Semi covering Giannis? That ended at some point last year- (no offense from the position?) Fingers crossed for the Celtics- good game! & it'll be a fun sports TV night. -
    I have to say I'm rooting for the Astros so Bryce Harpers feelings wont be hurt...

    (NOT!! ) Ha Ha Ha .

    1. Semi just can't supply the offense and rebounding. His D is great, but he offers little else.

  2. I like Grant Williams - High BB IQ. He's got a lot to offer. At 6' 8" - big body----. Can he stay in front of that Freak? He's going to work hard if he draws Giannis at any point. But he never saw anybody like this while at Tn. (or in the world ;)

The Elm Street Nightmare

 A true-and-suspenseful horror tale of haunting, homicides and the hunt for triple-murderer, Daniel Laplante - as told by the cops that were there By Lt. Thomas Lane (Ret.) and Off. Steven Bezanson (Ret.) Daniel Laplante - cold, calm, clever, calculating- Photo: YouTube   Elm Street  surfaces on four occasions in the Laplante saga: 1.) He  resided on Elm Street  in Townsend, Massachusetts 2.) He  kidnapped a woman  at gunpoint on  Elm Street, Pepperell , Massachusetts 3.) He was arrested and transported to Massachusetts State Police Barracks on Elm Street in Concord . 3.) He was  tried, convicted   and sentenced for the murders at  Superior Court , corner of  Elm Stree t and Gorham Street, Lowell, Massachusetts. When evil and cleverness reside in the same mind, the stage is often set for true horror. Such was the case with triple-murderer, Daniel Laplante . As a 16-year old , he quickly transitioned from: Minor thefts and breaking into homes To: Taunting and threatening a father and

Sign the Petition! Let's honor Tommy Heinsohn

  No longtime Celtics fan can watch games this year without a somewhat heavy heart. For the last 50 plus years, we have been blessed as a franchise to have Tommy Heinsohn, Mr. Celtic himself, as a part of the organization. Whether it be as a player, coach, or commentator, Tommy has been an instrumental figure for the green, and his presence is missed on every broadcast. Nobody embodied what it meant to be a Celtic more than Tommy, and I know I miss his energy and ferocity every time Scal claims the refs "made the right call" against the Cs. While Tommy obviously belongs on the Mount Rushmore of Celtics, he is often overlooked in his place among the greats of NBA history. Looking back upon his life, one would be hard pressed to find someone with a bigger impact on NBA basketball than Mr. Celtic. For those who are unfamiliar, let's do a quick review. Tommy is one of 2 people to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as both a player and coach (the other being the indomitable Len

Using trade exception to acquire Aaron Gordon needs consideration

The Orlando Magic's Aaron Gordon was taken fourth-overall in the 2014 NBA draft, two spots before Boston picked Marcus Smart at #6. I felt at the time that Danny Ainge would have taken Gordon with the sixth pick if the 6'8" power forward was still on the board. Well now, with a $28.5 million trade exception in his hands, it may be time to consider adding the super-athletic wing. Here's why: Brad Stevens feels you can't have enough mid-sized wings Brad Stevens does not favor the "little guys" because they often get mis-matched on defense by taller opponents. He also is not fond of the old-school, big centers. In his mind, they just can't be effective on his switching, perimeter defensive strategies. Gordon's salary fits the trade exception Aaron is set to earn $18.1 million this season and $16.4 million in the 2021-22 season. His salary was front-loaded, and that relatively-low $16.1 million figure kicks in when Jayson Tatum's max contract goes
