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.)  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 his two daughters as an unseen

Anna Horford let's fan know Al's value to the Boston Celtics

 Some fans of pro basketball just take the contrary view just to be...well - contrary , with no solid basis for their stand. Such was the case when when Al Horford's sister, Anna Horford, overheard an argument centered around the value of her brother to the Boston Celtics . No true Boston fan doesn’t love Al!! — Stephanie (@smars319) November 23, 2021 Al's value. Let's take a look at his team stats : Scoring: 4th at 13.1 PPG Rebounds: 2nd at 8.7 RPG Assists: 3rd at 3.5 APG Steals: 4th at 0.9 SPG Blocks: 1st at 1.9 BPG (tied with Giannis for 6th place in the NBA) Minutes: 6th at 29.4 MPG   One more thing about the blocks. That is new for Al . He is the only player over 29 years of age in the top-6 in blocks. Horford is 35. This gem-of-an-individual needs to prove nothing to Celtics fans, but I bet he needs to prove something to himself. Have I ever mentioned I love this guy?

Nik Stauskas adds "shooting with size" voiced by Brad Stevens

 As a 6'6" shooting guard, 28-year-old Nik Stauskas adds that shooting with size sorely needed by the Boston Celtics. Drafted 8th-overall by the Sacramento Kings in 2014, Stauskas has bounced around to various teams since then. Nik Stauskas' deal with the Boston Celtics includes non-guaranteed salary for the second season in 2022-23, a source tells @celticsblog . — Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) March 4, 2022 Nik has never averaged more than 9.5 points per game in the NBA, but Boston is most likely counting on his production for Grand Rapids in the G League as the incentive to sign him. In 17 games thus far, he has averaged 24.7 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 4.8 APG - while shooting 50% on field goals and 45% on treys. Nik Stauskas is signing a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics, his agents Mark Bartelstein and Andy Shiffman of @PrioritySports tell ESPN. Stauskas had an historic week, scoring 100 points on 57 and 43 point performances in back-to-back games for Grand Rapids. — Adrian Wo
