"Quad God" Carsen Edwards scores career-high 18 points in Celtics 140-133 shootout win over Wizards

Make no mistake - this contest was an absolute shootout, with the Celtics walking away with the 140-133 win over Washington. Bradley Beal was high man for the Wizards with 44 points. Rookie Rui Hachimura notched 21 points, while former-Celtic Isaiah Thomas started at point guard and came away with 18 points and seven assists. On the Celtics side of things, it is starting to look like Jim McIntyre's very-early projection of Carsen Edwards could come true, and it is great to see my "Quad God" moniker for Carsen may stick - thanks to @TaylorCSnow.


Kemba Walker poured in a team-high 25 points, and the Jay Team combined for 45 points, eight rebounds and eight assists. Jayson Tatum was 9-of-20 from the field, coming back from his horrendous 1-of-18 outing versus the Mavericks on Monday. But the high point of the night may have been supplied by rookie Carsen Edwards who came off the bench to score a career-high 18 points on 7-of-12 from the field and 4-of-5 on 3-pointers. Carsen also managed four rebounds and three assists, showing that he could very well become a complete player in this League.

Both Rob Williams and Daniel Theis were out of action last night with injuries, but we saw both Enes Kanter and Vincent Poirier in action at the center position. With Gordon Hayward out for roughly six weeks following hand surgery, it is starting to look like Edwards could play a significant role off the bench for Boston. With that in mind, take this opportunity to take a quick look at the @DHobeika video of Edwards' highlights below. It is delightful.

    1. As you are well aware, great quads are important - for looks and practical purposes. "Hungry thighs". That's why I don't neglect leg workouts.

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.

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

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

Rick Barry belittling Bill Russell on TV revealed the real fool

 It happened on national TV during the 1981 NBA Finals . Two of the announcers were Rick Barry and Bill Russell . When asked who was in a photo passed to Barry, Rick responded, "I don't know. Looks like some fool over there (referring to Russ) with the watermelon grin on. Russell repeatedly indicated the photo was of KC Jones , but Barry would have none of it. Worth watching. Russ vs. Rick Barry! The "fool with the watermelon grin" wasn't Bill. It was Barry. Don't believe it was racial, but the two didn't get along. Russ was clearly pissed. Rick Barry - Watermelon Grin https://t.co/NrUSkzrwZH via @YouTube — Tom Lane (@CelticsSentinel) September 24, 2021 Bill responded with, "That was K. C. That wasn't me. That was K. C." Then Barry tried to pass the photo to Bill, and Russ wanted none of that either. "No. I don't want them" is how Russell responded, clearly pissed, but still maintaining that aura of class and composure. Alth
