Indiana Comes To Town, Easy Win or Catastrophic loss


      Anytime we play Indiana how can you not think about the greatest player to ever come out of that state. Larry Joe Bird! How about that 75th anniversary moment from the Celtics where Bird hit his face off the Garden Floor, not gonna lie at a young age I got choked up seeing him come back out and doing what he did! EPIC!

     1st Quarter 

      Attack and off glass, that's the way you start the game JB! Driving and gliding, JT getting to the rack for the call. Out of the two stars, we see good offensive decisions. If Celtics fans learned patience, they would see both big dawgs are growing and maturing in their games. Still not big on Imes offensive sets, as I watch both Jays drinking their coffee in the corners. Where's the motion and movement?! 

     RWill aka Mr All Out Hustle, saving yet another possession for the Celtics this season. There should be a stat for that, and he would be leading that category. Curious though about how many of the possessions he's saved, did they result in points?! This has to be said. RWill fits alongside the Jays. 

     2nd Quarter 

     Let FREEDOM Ring, from the end of the first and now here in the second, we are seeing what Enes is capable of. His skill set can be used to take advantage of other teams weaknesses or even attack their strength.. We forget that this dude can ball when necessary, he did it in OKC and Portland. 

     Random thoughts, how great is it that the Celtics have come out and said we are not trading JB or JT! We are going to build around them! If that's the truth start building Brad! Put your money where your mouth is and give the Jays some high octane talent! One more thought. What is Scal's love affair with LBJ? Mike brings up when Stevenson got in his head and Scal laughed. Hey Scal, put some respect on Mike Gorman's name and when he says something! 

     3rd Quarter 

     Can we get a big run and blow this team away?! For an Indiana team that is horrible on the road they are holding up pretty well so far. The Celtics have missed a vast amount of shots tonight. No excuse the Celtics need to amp up the D and start driving to the cup! 

    Is it raining in the Garden, because it looks like they are running in mud, they seem very sluggish out there. Time to muster up that inner fight and get it going. Need Ime to set up some screens, and pick and rolls to get the offense going. Get JT and JB going to the hoop! Time to put Indiana away before they get confident and feel they can win. 

     4th Quarter 

     Need some energy in this building, the lack of juice in the Garden and by the players on the floor is depressing. Gotta get the building rocking, show that video of Larry hitting the floor with his face and then coming back to lead the Celtics to victory. It's just so quiet, I can't take it. 

    What a stat, 2-11 in games decided by five points or less. Not a stat you want to be attached to. Let's hope that changes tonight. This game has no rhythm whatsoever. Tied at 81 with 4 plus minutes to go, gotta close this game out, who's gonna be the closer? JB seems ready to do so. JT with the drive for the go ahead layup! What a game, not in a good way, let's just say it's been ugly. JT ties the game with a sweet pull-up. Now ya gotta play D. 

     Overtime against a bad Indiana team, here we go.. RWill with a block which lead to a three for GWill. Overall they are playing pretty well in overtime. JB and JT both hit big shots during OT. Can they close it out? Thankfully they did or the writer was gonna lose it. Bleed Green!

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
