The rising sun as Phoenix comes to Boston

    


      Rest in peace Sam Jones, an amazing player and very underrated! Memory Eternal! 

     1st Quarter 

     Marcus Smart coming out to ball. The Wolverine's game has grown exponentially. Watching Him nail that left hand floater gives us confidence that he can get to the hoop when we wants to. His passing skills are ascending in the right direction. Anyone who can't see the growth in his game this season is blind. 

      RWills maturation process is a joy to watch. He's turned himself into a player that can do just about anything needed.. He crashes the boards on both ends, he finds himself with bunnies down low. His passing needs a little work but it's getting there, his basketball IQ is strong! 

     2nd Quarter 

     JRich always impresses me, he plays hard D, and when called upon can knock down his shots. His three point shot is pretty reliable this season. His tweener game is my favorite. More minutes for him and things turn out well for the Boston Celtics.  

     Today's defense had been pretty good, guys are looking very aggressive, their hands are active and they are chasing down their man. Switches have been rather crisp, when you make the effort on D your gonna win more often then not. 

     3rd Quarter 

     Marcus Smart is Mr Left Hand! Marcus getting a few baskets using his left hand, is awesome. Plus he follows his own shot when need be. He seems to have great command over today's game. Keeping the offense going while steering the D. 

    Celtics are rolling today, the have welcomed a to NBA team into the Garden and hit them in the mouth. They have not let up yet, let's hope the keep things going in the fourth.    

     4th Quarter 

     Nice to finally see a comfortable win on the rise. Talk about a total team effort, on both ends this afternoon. Both JB and the Wolverine scored 24, not a bad way to end the year unlike myself who spent it in the ER. Is this final win of 2021, a positive note into hopefully spurring the Celtics into the new year?

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
