Es hora de que Tacko brille esta noche


 Muy bien, podría ser una situación básica para los Boston Celtics esta noche contra el rival Miami Heat. Con solo el mínimo de ocho jugadores de la Liga listados como "disponibles", podría significar que Tacko Time finalmente está aquí.

El "Green Giant" ha visto algunos minutos aumentados en dos juegos en lo que va de temporada y, obviamente, ha estado trabajando en su juego. Sus faltas y pérdidas de balón están bajas. Es cierto que la muestra de este año es pequeña, pero la temporada pasada sus estadísticas por 36 minutos muestran 7.6 faltas y 3.3 pérdidas de balón. Esta temporada revelan 5.8 faltas y CERO pérdidas de balón.

El rebote ofensivo de Tacko es una de las razones por las que Boston ocupa el tercer lugar en la NBA en rebotes ofensivos por juego (11.7 RPG). A pesar de no tener un atletismo de élite, es un protector de llanta fabuloso.


 En una defensa de zona, sería un gran obstáculo para los oponentes que ingresan a su territorio. En los dos juegos de Fall esta temporada, ha promediado solo 12.5 MPG. Eso debería cambiar esta noche. Oye, ¿por qué no? Es temprano en la temporada, Boston está empatado con los 76'ers, Suns y Lakers por el mejor récord de la NBA (7-3), y es hora de darle minutos significativos mientras aún está libre de COVID.


Tacko rebota, bloquea y disuade los tiros, tiene buenas manos para atrapar y terminar en lobs, y es un gran compañero de equipo. Los hombres grandes de la Liga tardan un poco más en desarrollarse. Tacko todavía está crudo, pero con la preparación adecuada, podría ser un arma grande (literalmente) en el arsenal de Brad Stevens.

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
