The Heat Is On -Thoughts From South Beach after Celtics 95-78 victory

     First Half Thoughts 

     1st Quarter

     Another slow start, Marcus with way too many threes - you want guys to pass the rock? Need to make your shots however. Where is the defensive rebounding tonight? Is that not part of the game? These Heat uniforms are U G L Y! We get another Aaron Nesmith sighting! 

     Al finally broke through with a three at around 8:25 in the first. GWill came in and knocked down a corner three. JB continues his success from last night scoring multiple ways. RWill with a few offensive rebounds. 

     Dennis Schroder getting to the hoop easily with his jet like quickness, for a few buckets. A Jabari Parker sighting! Where has he been? Celtics trail 24-18, in a defensive battle to far tonight. 

     2nd Quarter

     DS draws a foul on Lowry, he complains like a toddler. Crazy thing is DS did what Lowry would do to draw that same foul. Where is Payton Pritchard? Did he do something wrong last game? He could definitely spread the floor tonight, to open things up offensively. 

     Celtics D came to play so far tonight! Tatum had an excellent pass off the ball movement to RWill for a nice two! Nesmith with a few pure as spring water threes. Very active hands defensively, love seeing that! He was crashing the boards as well. We saw the Wolverine with an excellent box out to draw a foul. 

     Al posting up tonight is what we need more of, plus getting to the line as he did! He was crashing the offensive glass as well. DS hitting a three driving and getting fouls called. Marcus with a rainbow floater, then drawing a charge on the other end. JB with a rainbow like three at the end of the half! Celtics lead 51-33 at the half! One of their best quarters of the year defensively! Outscored the Heat 33-9, very impressive! 

     Second Half Thoughts

     3rd Quarter 

     Al and Marcus both hitting early threes in the third! JTs offense still not there but he's got active hands on D which shows the effort we want. JB to the cup taking the hit and scoring two. JB with a three right in your face Bam! Now the offense has disappeared. 

     Romeo to the line off of some nice ball movement! This writer still can't get over these horrid Heat uniforms. DS to the hoop for a sweet two. Romeo for three off the nice ball movement! 

     Overall Celtics weathered the storm, love seeing Brown getting into bubble boy Herros face! Al brings the hammer off the drive! Boom shakalaka! Celtics lead 75-57!

     4th Quarter 

     JT on the board, getting to the line. It only takes one! Tatum securing big boards tonight! Nesmith in the corner for three! Nesmith with the offensive board! Nesmith just gives it his all, crashing the boards as well. Tatum for three! Let's Go JT! 

     JB out with tightness in his hamstring. Heal up young fella gonna need you Saturday night vs Luka and the Mavs. Nice side step past Herro by JT for two! JT for three in right Duncan's face! In my blacktop days I'd be yelling FACE! 

     All we heard these past few days was about the "Team Meeting" How it was full of turmoil, well these young and older fellas have been balling so far down in the Keys. Not sure about you Mr Woj bomb, but I see something good out here! Not tumultuous at all. DS to Romeo under the hoop. Tatum the distributor has been good tonight. PP finally gets it nails a three! Nesmith with a big block! Huge win tonight, a two game win streak sounds good doesn't it?! Celtics win by playing great defense. Final score Celtics 95-78. Bleed Green!

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
