The Celtics beat the Bucks - and will beat the Bucks again. And again. And again.

What a night Wednesday was.  Before we look at the high points of the game let's just get this right out of the way.  Straight up.  My sources suck:


I think Grant Williams guarded Giannis on one possession for the entire game.  This type of performance is unacceptable and it will not be tolerated.  SO I have cut ties with my former "source" and I am now looking for someone new.  Interested?  Simply message me or tweet any Celtics related prediction at me.  It's that simple.  As simple as guarding Giannis...

Marcus Smart and Semi Ojele really did make it look easy didn't they?  They shut down the MVP and they really didn't need much help from other teammates to do it.  They did it so well that I really can't see how it changes at all later in the season.  Giannis can't score on these guys consistently.  Not.  Gonna.  Happen.  And therefore, Milwaukee cannot beat the Celtics in a 7 game series.  Our D is one reason why, but there were plenty of other reasons also being showcased on Weds night.

#1 Jayson Tatum played like the top 5 NBA player that he will soon become.  He attacked the basket time and time again.  In the first half he didn't finish.  But he KEPT ATTACKING.  This is the way he needs to play.  As he continues to get to the hoop, he will eventually learn how to finish through contact.  The guy is 21 years old and he is not that thick of frame.  It's gonna take time, and unfortunately he wasted a whole year last season.  It's obvious that he has a new aggressive attitude this year.  For the game, Tatum was 1-7 on shots less than 5 feet from the basket.  The effort and determined mindset that it takes to continue to drive to the hoop paid off in other ways though. #confidence #toughness #energy


#2 Marcus Smart was hitting threes like a confident Steph Curry clone.  Is Marcus now everybody's favorite player?  It really should be unanimous.

#3 Gordon Hayward looked like a guy who is actually good at basketball.  Welcome to Boston, Gordon!

#4 Rob Williams showed us who our starting center is going to be come playoff time.  It is so nice to finally have an intimidator waiting for guys in the lane.  Im not sure if intimidator is a word but if it isnt maybe it should just be Rob Williams' new nickname.  This dude sends shots into the cheap seats!  Ask Anthony Davis - he knows!!!

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
