Celtics Sentinel Citation Award goes to "The Schmart Guys" in last night's win

      After an exciting game last night the Celtics are now 2-and-2. These last two games we are starting to see the vision of this roster. We also get insight into how Ime Udoka handles his business. Celtics fan should love the image of him holding the Jays and Wolverine before the start of OT. 

     With that said, as you can see we have two hard nosed, give-your-all players who will be named the Sentinel Citation Award winners! Yes it's the Wolverine and Dennis Schroder, The Pest, Alias "The Schmart Guys".

     Schroder had 23 points, 6 rebounds, and 8 assists. He did get a block in there as well. What lines him up for this award is his ability to get dirty on D and offensively. He's not afraid to get in guys faces defensively, and offensively he goes to the hoop and, despite his slender frame, isn't afraid of contact. Dude had no fear and he and the Wolverine together must annoy other teams.

     The Wolverine had 7 points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 steals, and 1 block. One of his steals led to the Jaylen Brown's, Jordan-like tomahawk dunk! There is growth in Smarts game. He may have shot that 3 in the 4th at the end, but passed it up in OT and made the right decision for his team. He also frustrated Ball on a few plays defensively. The Wolverine truly Bleeds Green. Reports after the game said he had a migraine headache and was vomiting.. When asked if he wanted to play, he of course said yes. Talk about leaving it all on the floor. He is one of the models of what this award means. 

     Some may say the DS and Wolverine may not thrive because of their shooting but this writer and blog feel differently. They can score when need be, but they do everything else that compliments the Jays,and guess what, it worked. Beating a previously undefeated team. Bleed Green Celtics fans - things are taking shape!

In defense of Marcus Smart

 Let me make it clear first of all that I am totally against making a threat of any kind that even hints at harming, or certainly killing, another human being. Marcus Smart was wrong in doing so in the Celtics loss to the tanking Oklahoma City Thunder , and he deserved the one-game suspension. But to be honest, part of me loved that it occurred. . This type of thing can happen when a player gets to a point "beyond frustration" and is having a bad game. Marcus and his teammates have been under-performing generally - were in the process of losing to a pathetic-and-tanking Thunder team - and Smart was having a bad game . And he let loose verbally at the closest target - an NBA official. Wilt Chamberlain did a similar act versus referee, Earl Strom when Wilt was having his usual tortuous time at the free throw line (per Chicago Tribune's Sam Smith): ''He was in one of those 1-for-13s,'' recalls referee Earl Strom. ''Nothing was getting close. S
