THE KNIGHT'S NOTES: Solid win over the Thunder


     1st Quarter

     Team was flowing on offense 

     On offense in the first we saw some well flowing offense. Ball movement was key to their success. Smart was distributing, Horford was his Amazing Al self. DS is so sneaky quick, getting a runner and multiple jumpers. GWill continued his sharp shooting. We even saw Romeo get a bucket

     Tatum Came To Play 

     JT was getting the rock to his teammates. Finding Smart for a three, then to DS for an open shot. The scorer he is found the cup hitting some pure jumpers. When he had the open three it was smooth as butter. Talk about his D - he stuffed Dort like a turkey. 

Celtics lead 30-23 off a offensive driven first.

     2nd Quarter

     Offense continues it's flow like a smooth river

      Offensively they continued their pure passing, we saw Kanter get involved. JRich continues to prove his work getting assists and buckets. The Team D seemed to be a well oiled machine out there. 

     JT Smooth operator 

     JT came out again hitting his three point shot, he also found DS once again for another three. Over these past few games JT is becoming that complete player we saw last season.

Celtics lead 58-45 off a very impressive first half. 

     3rd Quarter

     DS and Al The Professionals!

     DS has such a light speed like drive - he gets to the cup with ease. He shot the three well, and once again had a nice jumper. Al was dealing from three and hitting that patented jump hook. Another sighting of JRich nailing a three. Offense continues to cook. 

     Did you say JT for three 

     JT came in to cook another nice offensive meal. Nailing his trademark step back. Finding himself nailing another nice three. On the break it was JAM city as he brought the double hammer.

Celtics lead 89-74 the offense and defense continue to impress. 

     4th quarter 

     What happened on both ends?

     We saw some decent offense but when Hernangomez is jacking up threes there should be some worry. The offense became lacks and the defense followed suit. How do you lose such a huge lead when you could have had a comfortable win. 

     JT continues his excellent game

     JT nailing a nothing but net three is such a sweet sound. He liked it so much he did again. His ability to get the three throw line needs to continue to get better. JT found Al once again which is a combo we should all like. 

Celtics win 111-105. Need to keep the foot to the petal and finish strong. Next up the Rockets. Bleed Green! Celtic Pride!

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?

According to many sources, the Celtics Kevin McHale did indeed have an estimated 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. He is a Basketball Hall of Fame inductee, and is regarded as one of the best power forwards of all time. He was named to the NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time Team. Wikipedia Born: December 19, 1957 (age 61 years), Hibbing, MN Wingspan: 8′ 0″ Height: 6′ 10″ Spouse: Lynn McHale (m. 1982) NBA draft: 1980, Boston Celtics (Round: 1 / Pick: 3) Hall of fame induction: 1999 Number: 32 (Boston Celtics / Power forward, Center) Kevin was listed at 6'10" tall when he was drafted with the 3rd pick in the 1980 draft.
