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.

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
