Can The Celtics Take A Big Bite Out Of The Big Apple

     1st Quarter 

     Lob to Rob! Nice way to open up the game with Rob ramming in a dunk. JB coming out hot, he's like the Energizer bunny starting this game. Here's a question, can we get and see double digits by both studs in the same game? So far the Knicks look like they are stuck in mud. 

     It can't be said enough about RWill he just gets extra possessions for this team on a regular basis. His length, his hustle are huge keys to his success. He's also an eraser in the post sending out the Knicks weak attempts at going to the hoop. The growth of this young man is just wonderful. He has a very high basketball IQ. 

     Does anyone else not care for Knicks fans? They think they own basketball, despite the Celtics owning them historically!

     2nd Quarter 

     JRich is a cold, no fear baller, JT himself is pretty nailz as well. Early on before the season started I felt JRich would compliment the Jays rather well. When he's out there with them he makes his mark on the floor. He's unafraid of the moment. That's the kinda player you want to go to war with in the playoffs. JT was facilitating early and then he was like I'm gonna swish a few threes!

     Celtics are lighting it up in the other garden! The threes are raining from above! Overall the pace of the offense has been really good. Ball movement is Poppin! It's always nice when you can go on the road and quiet the home crowd. Which is the case so far tonight. 

     3rd Quarter 

     How is the lead down to 10?! Unacceptable play, taking your foot off the gas has lead to the Knicks cutting this lead to 10. Celtics just got hit in the mouth, now it's the time to come back swinging, let's get some little jabs ( easy ones) and big blows ( threes). We can't take another winnable game going down the toilet. 

     JT ends the Knicks run, the Wolverine banks one in and Al with the follow. Nice counter punch and answer gentleman! Keep it rolling, knock them out this quarter! RWill is having a block party, leading with six so far tonight. Celtics force a shot clock violation, in essence being down one guy off the block from the Wolverine! 

     How is that here we are and the lead is down to single digits? Don't give me the back to back tired excuse. Get up fellas, and finish this game strong! Can someone tell Tracey Morgan to sit his behind down!

     4th Quarter 

     I personally can't handle another 4th quarter meltdown. What is going on out there? JT put this team on your back and get the win. We need to see intensity on D and good solid offensive possessions. This team is becoming very frustrating to watch, but there is hope they can right the ship and pull this out. 

     The Wolverine shuts the crowd up! RWill with another HUGE block, 7th heaven! The Wolverine again! Off another great read by JT. JT for three in Your Face! So far the Celtics are starting to slowly get things together. Tatum continues to cook, it's going to be needed with how Fournier is playing out of his mind. Still feeling very uneasy during this 4th. I'm gonna vomit in my mouth. Ime is taking a much needed time out, he needs to coach this team to a much needed win. 

     JT with the wise move, driving to the hoop. His maturation process continues. Tatum to the hoop and one! Once again going to the cup! 

    Not sure how much more I can take. Celtics lose.

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?

According to many sources, the Celtics Kevin McHale did indeed have an estimated wingspan of 8-feet. One of those sources is Wikipedia, as seen below: Kevin McHale American basketball player DescriptionKevin Edward McHale is an American retired basketball player who played his entire professional career for the Boston Celtics. 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. Wikipedia Born: December 19, 1957 (age 61 years), Hibbing, MN Wingspan: 8′ 0″ Height: 6′ 10″ Spouse: Lynn McHale (m. 1982) NBA draft: 1980, Boston Celtics (Round: 1 / Pick: 3) Hall of fame induction: 1999 Number: 32 (Boston Celtics / Power forward, Center) Kevin was listed at 6'10" tall when he was drafted with the 3rd pick in the 1980 draft.
