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

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

Rick Barry belittling Bill Russell on TV revealed the real fool

 It happened on national TV during the 1981 NBA Finals . Two of the announcers were Rick Barry and Bill Russell . When asked who was in a photo passed to Barry, Rick responded, "I don't know. Looks like some fool over there (referring to Russ) with the watermelon grin on. Russell repeatedly indicated the photo was of KC Jones , but Barry would have none of it. Worth watching. Russ vs. Rick Barry! The "fool with the watermelon grin" wasn't Bill. It was Barry. Don't believe it was racial, but the two didn't get along. Russ was clearly pissed. Rick Barry - Watermelon Grin via @YouTube — Tom Lane (@CelticsSentinel) September 24, 2021 Bill responded with, "That was K. C. That wasn't me. That was K. C." Then Barry tried to pass the photo to Bill, and Russ wanted none of that either. "No. I don't want them" is how Russell responded, clearly pissed, but still maintaining that aura of class and composure. Alth
