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.

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.
