The Late Great Frank Sinatra Sang about New York. Tonight the Celtics take on the Knicks.

    
     Start spreading the news! The Celtics are winning today! I've got to be a part of it! In Boston Garden! 

     1st Quarter 

     We saw both JB and JT get going early nailing some triples, each player missed one. Well you know that they did next possession, they drove to the HOOP! While today's NBA player gets fixated on the three, credit is due to these two young fellas for maturing and getting to the basket. Why basketball has moved farther away from the hoop makes no sense to me.

     JRich is just a very smooth player out there on the floor. His ability to make plays look effortless are a huge asset. He's a tweener guy who not only gets to the hoop, but took some midrange shots as well with ease. His defensive effort is second to none when he's locked in. JRich can be an x factor come playoff time. Expect him to come up big the rest of the game.

Celtics lead 32-18 plus we had the pleasure of watching both Crash and PP hit the court.

     2nd Quarter 

     In some ways, having the Celtics be short roster wise, allows guys like PP and Crash to show why we fell in love with them last season. Playing with effort and heart are what makes these two special. There skill sets can be used to complement the Jays as big pieces for a team that can make a run into the top of the Eastern Conference. 

     JB lead the way on most fronts for the good guys in green. Having him back in the line up has been huge. His play and what he brings to this team are immeasurable. Build around the Jays and winning will occur. They are still YOUNG, you don't trade hot young talent. You nurture them and watch them grow.

Celtics lead 62-47 at the half in a all out team effort. 

     3rd Quarter 

    Old friend Kemba Walker has been playing pretty well for a guy who was buried so deep on the Knicks bench he needed a shovel to dig out of. Kemba was the pros pro when he was here. Actually throughout his entire career. If only he had been healthy for us what could have been. He was lights out this quarter, saying to all the NBA y'all remember me?!

       Anyone for Sloppy Joes? I mean sloppy play. This third quarter has been a mess, what is going on out there. Someone needs to right this ship calling JB or JT. Please pick up line one and get this game where it needs to be. With you steering this game to a win. 

Celtics trail 88-86 after old friend Kemba Walker comes in and lights them up! It's J time! Close game, fourth quarter, let's get it. 

     4th Quarter 

    JRich said get on my back fellas and let me groove. Nailing threes in Knicks players faces with absolutely no fear. Dude has a quiet confidence out there with a flare of fireworks. His D is what impresses this writer the most. The offense he brings is the gravy to mamas homemade mashed potatoes which is his delicious D.  

     What's really nice about what we have watched over these past two games is a wounded roster that is willing to play it's behinds off. There are ultimately no excuses for the bottom line which is revenue for the NBA. We should be proud of how hard this team has played thru this. 

Celtics win 114-107, JRich you gave us your all tonight, we see you baller.

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
