Poor Offensive Plays and Turnovers - Thoughts On A Loss to Cavs

     First Half Thoughts

     1st Quarter
      GWill came out firing hitting a few threes. Smart and RWill with the connection for yet another JAM! We saw Nesmith get in and get a bucket
     PP got minutes, very surprised because we rarely see him. Jabari got some time and had a bucket. 

     JT to RWill for two, JT going strong to the hoop. DS had a rain making floater. Overall offensively they left some points on the floor. Celtics lead 20-9.

     2nd Quarter 

     Nesmith again with a bucket. We got some love from Romeo with an And One! We had a Hernangomez sighting getting to the line
      JT yet again getting to the hoop. JT getting himself to the line. His willingness to go and get to the line is a welcome sign. 

     DS was balling once again, hitting jumpers, getting to the hoop, and also getting to the line as well. Overall his play has been solid over these past two games. Celtics lead 52-38

     Second Half Thoughts

     3rd Quarter

     GWill for three again! The Silent assassin! JT falling away getting two, love seeing him go to the hoop, he hit a nice fall away and a three point shot as well! GWill getting points inside.
     RWill for two getting those offensive boards. His hustle and numbers this year have been a joy to watch. Love his improvement year to year. RWill with the oop again!
     Overall points left out there, we need to see more ball movement. We also need to finish the quarters better. Celtics lead 74-72

     4th Quarter
     Turnovers and horrible offense have hurt them this quarter. You can't allow inferior teams to hang around. Which can and did lead to the Celtics demise. 

      We saw DS, The Wolverine, and JT get to the line. JT came to play again getting to the hoop, he also tied the game up. There was bad non goal tend call, NBA refs suck. The last play call tonight was not very good. Celtics lose 91-89. Celtics fans expect a better outcome Monday night

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

Did the Celtics Kevin McHale really have a wingspan of 8-feet?

One of those sources is Wikipedia, as seen below: Kevin McHale American basketball player DescriptionKevin Edward McHale is an American retired basketball player who played his entire professional career for the Boston Celtics.
