Interesting game tonight for a short-handed Celtics team.


      So we have no Al Horford or Jaylen Brown due to Covid protocols. Pile on to that where Josh Richardson, Dennis Schroder, The Wolverine and Jayson Tatum are getting a day to rest. Who do we see tonight make the most of their minutes? The assumption would be that Payton Pritchard and 3Smith should be major contributors tonight. Do we see some of that summer loving where they go off? 

     Will we get more minutes for Hernangomez who appears to have a motor that goes hard. Do we see Rob and Grant a lot on the floor together? We know what we have in Kanter, with that incredible running style up and down the floor. Is this a Romeo game filled with loving threes?

     Ultimately tonight's game could give us insight into who takes that final roster spot? Is Jabari going to bring that talent and show why he was a top draft pick? What about Sam Hauser - will he light it up?  Garrison Matthews anyone. Let's see what he's got in the tank from deep! Do we get a Theo Pinson sighting? Where's Ryan Arcianado? Personally I want to see Bruno bring that KG type play and personality.

      Let's just hope overall the Celtics don't get hit with Covid like last year. We deserve to see this team healthy and maximize what can be a great season! This writer knows and understands Covid and injuries are part of the game. With that said, we had enough of that last year. Let's also think big picture. Both the Sixers and Nets are kinda dealing with dysfunction and could a top 4 seed be in play for us? Food for thought!

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
