A New Year with New Results for Boston Celtics


      1st Quarter
    
      Ball Movement Ball Movement so far we are getting to see some very nice ball movement. Leading to a three from Dennis Schroder, and watching JB get to the hoop untouched. On yet another possession, we see the offense end in a Jaylen Brown nothing-but-nylon three. Imagine this Celtics fans, What if we moved the ball this well every game. Hmmm the possibilities could be endless. 
     Can a run to start the new year save this roster, let's play hypothetical, if the Celtics reel off five games in a row or more, get themselves into a top 4 seed, what are we asking Brad to do? Stick with this group or make some upgrades that can result in a nice lengthy playoff run? Interesting to think about as we move forward. 
     Movement away from the hoop? As we near the end of the quarter, a lot of our offensive screens and plays are for threes!? Ime tell me why, get these guys going to the damn hoop, your the coach adapt your offense. 

     2nd Quarter 

     Why have offenses gone three happy? I guess I'm just an old basketball soul. I watch these games and say why are teams not attacking the hoop more! Instead we see guys doing their taxes around the three point line. That or on fast breaks guys are heading to the three point area instead getting the easy two. There are so many empty trips when we see to many threes jacked up. 

     JBs game is extremely valuable to the success not only tonight, but this season. He proves himself regularly on the floor, showing us he's a top dawg. I met Jerry Colangelo, and he said JB wasn't on his radar and after that convo I knew he was gonna do special things. Why do I say that cuz it sounded like sour grapes on his end. 

     3rd Quarter 

     As we start the third, here's a concept, DON'T TURN THE BALL OVER! If the Celtics can play better and sharper this quarter they can watch the lead get bigger. Turnovers are what killed them in the first half. Clean it up guys, and you run away with your first win of the new year. 

      Celtics finally get on the board with a nice double screen. JB using his basketball IQ to get the easy and one. When the offense isn't right go to the hoop! What a concept, going to the cup to score easy points. Once this team truly embraces drives and dishes watch out!  

     4th Quarter 

     Turnovers and sloppy play, are why the Celtics are trailing as we start the 4th. Absolute disgusting basketball played during the third. What is going on!? Where is the fire going to come from? Defense anyone? After we get a Bruins and Patriots win all we need is the Celtics to come through and they aren't. Let's see what's gonna happen. 

     Can you feel it, yes this team has a heart and the blood is pumping! Everyone is contributing, JRich, DS The Wolverine and JB! Al is the solid foundation holding it together. Terrence Ross is and always kills us. Our D is a joke right now, story of this season, losing winnable games, and playing to your opponents level. JB and The Wolverine are willing this team tonight. Talk about grit, balls and heart! A long road back and the Celtics have tied this game. We needed to see this comeback, let's GO! 

     Overtime 

     DS driving to the dish for two then a steal on the other end! Then drills a three! He's coming hard in the OT. Now we see the zebra's with a garbage call, I mean a dumpster fire call on the Wolverine. JB for three! 50 fantastic points! Al with a dagger to seal the win. Will this be the signature win that spurs a run of wins!? It better, because this one was a roller coaster! Bleed Green! Celtic Pride!

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
