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!

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
