With Jaylen Brown in a groove, Celtics victorious over Cleveland, 111-101

 

     1st Quarter 

     JB came out like he was shot out of a cannon tonight. His threes were silky smooth. When he is on he's hard to contain. He's like a video game out there, to the point where you can't stop him. Any of our knowledgeable Celtics fans recognize how important he is to this team? This writer does. He kept our offense rolling with his 16 early points. 

     What is with these Celtics uniforms? They may be playing well as a unit so far tonight but damn those jerseys need to be thrown in a dumpster. What's happened to the days where it was just the simple home and away uniforms? Simplicity is a good thing, Way to many different uniforms for my liking. 

Celtics lead 31-26 off some decent shooting by the Celtics led by JB and his 16 points. 

     2nd Quarter 

     First offensive possession of the first resulted in a PP three! All Celtics fans should hope that his minutes continue to increase throughout the season. If they do this writer predicts that the Celtics will not only win more games, but be a problem come playoff time. There are certain guys like him and Crash 3Smith who deserve more minutes. 

     RWill doing his natural thing on the court tonight. Crashing the glass, rebounding the rock and just playing that D! When he is healthy he's another guy who needs more minutes on the court. More minutes for him results in more possessions and opportunities to score for the good guys in green and white. 

Celtics lead at the half 63-48. Off of some solid offense and good defense. Total team effort so far tonight. Romeo, PP and Let Freedom Ring contributing in that second quarter. 

     3rd Quarter  

     JB continues to look like a one man wrecking crew out there. Knocking down yet another threeeeee! Driving to the rack and getting an easy two! We have to love seeing RWill cutting to the hoop getting the rock from JT. RWill is very cerebral out there, knowing when to cut to the hoop, especially since JT was double teamed out there. One thing is for certain JTs willingness to pass is a huge asset.

     JBs willingness and growth as a passer is an underrated part of his game. RWills screens allow for guys like JT to dance his way to the hoop for a nice layup. Imagine this we have two players who can just about do anything we need them to on the court. Both are capable defenders, willing passers, and  offensively can just flat out LIGHT IT UP!

Celtics lead 85-73 after three. The lead should be bigger but we will take it. Bring on the 4th and let's hope for a nice win! 

     4th Quarter 

     RWill does it all! On the fast break he danced his way to the rack for a hammer time dunk off the steal. RWill the passer finding Romeo off a nice cut. Hmmm cutting to the hoop actually works, instead of standing around the three point line drinking coffee. What a concept! Fun fact from the broadcast Did you all know JT leads the NBA in fourth quarter scoring?! If he can take that and become a true closer it's all over for the league. 

     JT backing guys down and getting to the hoop for two are a sight to be seen! Seeing how he wears Jordans, maybe he should go grab some old VHS tapes and study MJs game. He needs to continue to back guys down and make them look foolish. Post em up and get them easy buckets. I know the three is that flashy car but just give us buckets. Drive, post up and get it done! 

Celtics win 111-101, we even had a Joe Johnson sighting? Say what!? What year is it? Imagine if the Celtics never traded him? JB lead the team with 34 points and we saw RWill score a career high tonight banging out 21 points! Good win fellas! Bleed Green!

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
