Late Night In LA


      1st Quarter 

     Jayson Tatum Came Out En Fuego

     JTs first basket was a dunk off a steal from the Wolverine. Then he was shooting lights out from three, evenen banked one off the glass. It must be the bright lights of LA that had him coming out hot. He has this in him to start this way. Now he can draw double teams and get open shots for his teammates.

    RWill Mr Hammer Jam 

     Coming off a few excellent passes, he was able to lay the hammer to the rim. Whenever he's in the lineup he brings the energy, he's just a lit fire cracker when he plays. He's been one of best Celtics this season and his game continues to grow. He's a very smart and intuitive player. 

Celtics lead 33-31, not much defense being played. 

      2nd Quarter 

     Where is that staunch D 

     Starting off the quarter with the lead and the D seems very lazy, not getting to their spots or positions. We have seen this team thrive when they play hardcore D but right now that ain't happening. The only way your going to beat this so called super flop - I mean super team - is by playing D. 

     Drive Drive Drive 

     Here's a question? Why do NBA players not drive to the hoop more? Watching both the Wolverine and DS get to the hoop with ease, tells me DRIVE THE BALL. This Fakers Defense can't keep up with you, their tired washed up game is slow and old. Their entire roster should be in a museum! 

Celtics trail 60-55 lack of intensity on D is costing them tonight. 

     3rd Quarter 

     Just Can't Take Watching Him 

    Whenever LeFlop plays, there's a feeling of being fake. He seems like a bad actor on the floor, and if you need more proof checkout Space Jam 2. He's a big whiny baby out there and watching him isn't any fun. This writer doesn't get why the NBA hitched it's wagon to him. He flops, cries, and changed the game of basketball in the wrong way. His level of over acting is on par with soccer players.

     JB is truly Missed  

     As the third takes it's shape, the Celtics were not hitting their shots, makes me think JB would be a guy who could get buckets needed to sustain staying in this game. JBs willingness to get to the hoop and take no prisoners is needed right now. Plus his midrange game is usually on point as well, not to mention he can light it up from 3.

Celtics trail 91-75 due to lack of aggression on D and poor shooting. 

     4th Quarter 

     Games like this are way to late

     As the lead has ballooned to 20, with a lack of aggression on both ends tonight, the Celtics need to regroup and beat the other LA team tomorrow night. These games are way to late for this writer, snacking on something to stay awake watching the puppy sleep. If this team doesn't get their act together tomorrow they will lose. 

     JT showed up but it wasn't enough

   Thirty four points in thirty for minutes is pretty good, but losing isn't.  He had eight rebounds and three assists. He came out hot as molten lava, had a few dry spells but was the best Celtics player out there.

Celtics lose 117-102 in a lackluster performance.

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. Red Auerbach, in yet another heist, brought in both McHale and center Robert Parish (via trade) prior to the Celtics' 1980-81 Champion

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
