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.) 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?
