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.

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

Did the Celtics Kevin McHale really have a wingspan of 8-feet?

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.
