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.

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?
