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.) 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
