Did Trae Young Have Another Big Game Vs Celtics? Read More To Find Out


     1st Quarter 

     Defensively Hawks Lit Up Celtics

    Trae Young was able to thwart what the Celtics did trying to trap him. While the Celtics did get a few steals, the Hawks had way too many open threes. Huerter looked like a HOF in the first. Knocking down everything he took. The D did force a 24 second clock violation but way to many open looks for the Hawks.

     GWill The Starter Stepped Up 

     GWill received the call to start, and he didn't disappoint. He hit threes from both corners, it seems he's found his stroke again. He had a nice cut while the Wolverine drove and got a deuce. Then he found the basket once again. 

     Jayson Tatum did not disappoint 

    JT came to play this quarter despite missing his first shot. He found his teammates distributing the rock. He got to the line off of going to the hoop! He had a few easy dunks, and he nailed a nice three! He's starting to look like himself.. 

Celtics trail 30-29, still within striking distance despite the start defensively. 

     2nd Quarter  

     Josh Richardson is a talented dude 

    JRich is a guy who we remember killing the Celtics. It is nice watching him do it for us, He's killing it softly this game. He had a nice dribble which led to a very sweet jumper. Dude has the handles when need be. He's been hustling on D which endears him to this writer. He also nailed another nice jumper! 

     Al and Dennis are huge veteran assets 

     In this second quarter we saw how well these two play off of each other. We saw that neither player gives up on a play. Trae Young had a break where we saw Al hustle to get to him, and who was right behind him it was DS. It ended in a foul but that hustle is what wins games. The rest of the team can look to these two as a model of what Hustle looks like. 

Celtics trail 58-49, a lackluster ending to the second led to the Hawks increasing their lead. Hopefully Udoka can get in their ears and have them come out like fire crackers in the third. 

     3rd Quarter 

     Slowly, But Surely The D Stepping Up 

     At the start of the third we saw a much more concerted effort to get into passing lanes. They had active hands, and just all out hustle on D. This is how you mess with the Hawks. Make them work on O, which leads to mistakes. They need to keep this up, if so maybe they can eek out a nice road win vs the ECF runner ups. 

     A Tale of Two stories in one Quarter

     Well the good D that we saw early on in the third didn't hold up. After making some great plays it was a total flip flop. Way too many open shots like we saw in the first. That optimism about eeking out a win is now just a flicker in the rear view mirror. The game has gotten out of control. 

Celtics trail 91-77. 

     4th Quarter 

     Couldn't Get Over the Hump Tonight 

     They just couldn't get out of their own way tonight. Defensively it just continued to fall apart. They had their chances to get into the game. It just shows how important it is to have two great scorers. Trae Young didn't have his typical scoring outburst vs the Celtics, which is a good sign going into the next time we see him. 

     Celtics lose 110-99. Tatum seems to be hitting his stride, he had 34 points, 5 assists, and 9 rebounds. Onto Friday night vs the Fakers and the king of flops. Bleed Green Celtics fans it's gonna get better.

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?

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
