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.)  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
