It's Game Night! There's a Wolf in Sheep's Jerseys out there

 

 

     1st Quarter 

     Robert Williams Continues his growth 

     RWill continues his maturation, it is truly something that we should embrace. The way his game has elevated is a true joy for Celtics fans. Every year every season he grows into a true basketball big. Honestly when we drafted him I was pumped and he has not disappointed. 

     Al being back brings comfort 

      Isn't it nice to have the steady comfort of Al being back in the line up. Als play this year has been spectacular! He seems like a young 35 at this point. He's setting great screens, fighting for rebounds, and passing the ball like a pro. On the offensive end he's getting to the hoop, he's posting up, and hitting threes. Gotta love Al! 

     Overall not very pleased with how this game is evolving. Both teams seem to be playing at a mediocre level. This needs to be a JB or PP game with a sprinkle of Crash 3Smith.

     2nd Quarter 

     When Payton Pritchard gets minutes - he produces

     If anyone has followed PP from college to the pros we all know he's up to the challenge. Whether is being getting to the hoop, hitting tweener shots or nailing threes. Gotta love the guts this dude plays with. If Ime is the coach we hope he can evolve to, then expect to see PP have a huge role on a team that can make some noise in the playoffs. 

     Dennis Schroder a trade chip? What's the best offer? 

     As great as DS has been this season, is he a player who can bring in a quality piece to help this team grow. DS can ball up on D and get to the rack, I'm sure there are plenty of teams who would love him on their team. Question is who can he bring back in return???

     3rd Quarter 

      Al Horford is dealing Aces 

     Amazing Al coming out here dealing Aces, making threes, posting up, and hitting the right guys on offense. Al just plays the right way, he positions himself in the right spot on most plays. He's the pros pro, every team needs an Al Horford. Al sees the floor as clear as day. 

      JB keeps growing on the tree of the NBA 

     As we watch JB grow as a pro, we can all admit to the fact he can ball. Athletically hes sleek and quick as lightning. His shot is as smooth as butter on a roll. He has the footwork of a ballerina when he get to the hoop. What I would like to see more of is JB taking on the opponents best player and shutting him down!

     4th Quarter 

     P Squared coming up Big 

     PP has the great ability to get to the hoop. He silences the crowd as the Celtics were starting to crumble. Once again a fourth quarter meltdown is on the table. Can PP be the guy to lead them? Can Ime come up and out coach the wolves coach? Something needs to break this downward spiral. 

     Who is going to come up big? 

     We need a closing line up, who can be that group? JB, Al, GWill, PP, and RWill? All this writer knows is once again we are letting a win slip right out of our hands in the fourth once again. Enough is enough fellas get it together!!! Another disappointing loss.

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?

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
