Thoughts on Celtics 122-113 OT win over wounded Bucks

 

     First Half Thoughts

     1st Quarter

     Label this writer being disappointed that The Greek isn't playing. With that said, you get a wounded Bucks team that needs to be put in their place! Celtics fans get to welcome back the ultimate do your job player in Semi Ojeleye! Bobby Portis is a guy Celtics fans would love to have on our team. 

     JT to Al to RWill for the JAM, starting off the scoring tonight. Al with some busy hands on D, following up misses and getting put backs. Al to DS for three, he liked it so much DS did it again. Plus he's using his lightning quick skills to get to the hoop. DS once again getting buckets. DS using his slithery silky smooth moves to get to the hoop. 

    JT using his strength to get to the hoop tonight, nailing a three in Allen's face, with some Duke on Duke crime. JT nailing a three which when it goes in sounds like joy out of the hoop. JT crashing the boards. Thanasis looking like his brother out there. Al nailing a top of the key three! GWill cutting for two! So many wasted shots on both ends from the three point line. Celtics and Bucks all tied up 30-30

     2nd Quarter

     Smart had a nice drive for two to open things up. GWill has lost that Curry like touch from three point land. Smart kept the ball alive which led to JRich going to the hoop for two! The way this team keeps the ball alive is something Tommy would be proud of

     Smart to Nesmith in the corner for three, buckets! Smart liked it so much he made one himself. Some sloppy offense right now, need to tighten things up fellas! Tatum with yet another lovely sounding three! That swish is music to Celtics fans ears. Smart to RWill to the hoop, Smarts playmaking ability is improving. 

     Overall defensive effort has been pretty good. If they can harness working hard on D they can be a problem. On offense we are seeing a few too many TOs. You can't let a wounded team hang around. Get it together guys, finish this quarter strong. JT with the step away fall away. Swoosh! JT off a nice pass by RWill. Celtics D forcing turnovers. Yet they trail at the half 55-51. 

     Second Half Thoughts

     3rd Quarter 

     JT with a straight away nothing but net three! DS using his elite speed getting to the hoop! DS to RWill for two is money! Al with a nice block to get things going on D! It's time to put the Bucks to sleep. Marcus for two. The Bucks are unrelenting. Marcus to the hoop driving on Allen. 

     Great D to force a 24 second violation! Smart scores again! Marcus for three! Tatum with another in your face three! DS using his cheetah like quickness for a nice layup! There are some very nice pieces on this team. RWill to Romeo with the subtle dunk. 

     JRich drawing the foul on Semi. JT to the hoop, tunneling through the D. If Scal mentions how he wants to see LBJ I'm gonna have to turn the volume off, but hearing Mike Gorman is worth it. Al from the Wolverine got the fans on their feet! Celtics lead 88-81 after the third. 

     4th Quarter 

     DS to the hoop to open up the Celtics scoring in the 4th. Dude is lightning quick and very efficient at the rim. DS again! Celtics need to watch out Bobby Portis is heating up. Time out Celtics time to regroup and finish strong. 

     DS with the steal, DS with the rebound, he's doing a bit of everything tonight. He's a jack of all trades. DS with the floater! It caught some of today's rain on the way down. Any Pats fans, we get a Kyle Van Noy sighting. DS for three, dude is balling tonight! Talk about playing for a new contract!

     RWill with a great offensive rebound jumping into the rafters to secure it. JT using his body to get to the line. Celtics have a lead but it's definitely not a comfortable one, the Bucks came to play tonight channeling their inner Giannis. Tatum sizing Semi up and drilling a three in his eye! Smart to RWill with the HAMMER!

      Tonight's game has had it's ebbs and flows, this Bucks team plays like their leader even when he's out. Celtics have been consistent in their effort tonight on both ends. Not a perfect game, but this team is starting to take on a hard nosed identity. Smart gets to the hoop as if Moses parted the Red Sea. The Garden is rocking, as DS gets a huge shot. 

     Celtics - Bucks stand tied at 108, time out Celtics. What play would you draw up Celtics fans? It's down to the wire tonight! Tatum with the rock and we are heading to OT. 

     Overtime 

     Another OT for the Celtics, DS with another floater! Portis ties it up. JT driving and kicking to RWill. Free throws! Celtics secure the rebound, bad offensive possession. DS with another huge shot! RWill blocks old friend Semi, DS with the left hand! Celtics by five! Garden is Rocking! RWill with a huge block! Celtics with a 122-113 win! 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.) and Off. Steven Bezanson (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

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

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?
