Old Friend Gordon Hayward is back in town.

      1st Quarter

      Celtics wearing their Green uniforms and I gotta say it looks good. Celtics playing hard so far on D, now it's time for the offense to start! While the ball movement has been solid, the points are not coming. When DS starts, it seems he plays his best. Some guys just do their best when they can start cooking early in the game. 

     Crashing the glass as a unit, on several possessions the Celtics are hitting the glass with effort. With no RWill, we are seeing other guys keep offensive sets alive by going after the rock on misses. If more NBA guys followed their shots that would make a big difference in games. I was always taught to follow your shot. JT giving up threes to drive to the hoop, is magical to see! Ball movement has been crisp so far. 

     2nd Quarter

     Coming off a tight first, what should we look for at the start of the second. Hopefully a nice Celtics run to get things going. Nice to PP getting some run to start things up. Officials making some garbage calls right now. JRich has really impressed me this entire season. Watching him body up and block the shot was sweeeet. 

     JB for three, tonight's game is heading up! Threes are being made like punches in a slugfest. I've said it a few times already, but the Celtics ball movement is very smooth, and key to then playing well tonight. Right now shots aren't falling, get to the rack! Let's not fall behind, this is a good Hornets team. Ime should have taken the TO sooner. Finish the half strong! Witch didn't happen. A game you need to win and this is how you end the half. 

     3rd Quarter

    Need to see some fire coming out of the half, Celtics were heading down a slippery and cold slope towards the end of the half. We need to see JT post up, drive to the cup, and take over the third. Let him distribute the rock, we all know he tends to find the right play when he's dishing the rock out. He needs to answer Oubre and show him who the big dawg is. So far we are flat as Carl Lewis singing the National Anthem. 

     Interesting double Big lineup, we have Let Freedom Ring, and Always Steady Al in there. Offensively it can work, defensively not so sure. Finally some aggressive D led by DS the pest! Celtics need to start RUNNING! Where is the crowd tonight?! It sounds like a ghost town. Get off your phones and get into the game Celtics fans. A little crowd noise can go a long way in getting a nice run out of this Celtics team. 

     4th Quarter 

    Celtics fans how ya feeling, is your blood boiling yet?! What was that play in the third. They had the opportunity to dig out of the hole they are in. Yet they did absolutely nothing. Here we are in the fourth and we all know that's not our best quarter. Can they buck the trend, I sure hope so. This team needs to grow up, play as though this is their last time on a court, and finish strong. 

    Standing in the corners of the court, drinking coffee and watching paint dry. What the heck kind of offensive set is that Ime?! WAY TOO MANY THREES, especially when you are shooting so poorly. JRich my guy, cuts the lead to six. This is the time to make a run, you have the Hornets trembling out there. Amp up the defensive intensity, get to the hoop, and swat this Hornet team back to Charlotte. 

     Will JT or JB show they have the onions to lead the Celtics to this win. Play some D! We need a real point guard on this team, and a few shooters. Down by 7 with five minutes to go. I'm trying to compose myself but I feel like a volcano ready to explode. Too many winnable games have been flushed down the toilet this year. Chalk up tonight as a loss fans. Back to 500 where we live.

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

Rules of survival: When search-and-rescue turns into body recovery

 How the Hell did this happen? Two days after 19-year-old Emily Sotelo was supposedly dropped off in Franconia Notch (NH) at roughly 5:00 AM ET, Sunday, November 20, 2022 by her mother, to hike several mountains alone, the search continues for the young lady. Photo by Linda Lane The information from news agencies indicated that Emily started hiking the trails while it was still dark. She was supposedly wearing only sneakers, a coat and workout pants. I can persona;ly attest that the weather in the area was very cold with high wind speeds, and gaining elevation on the trails would only add to the horrendous conditions. Ms. Sotelo was reportedly a seasoned hiker, but had little or no experience hiking in winter. At the peaks, temperatures on that Sunday dropped to zero degrees with a wind chill of minus-30 degrees. It is beyond my comprehension to imagine a hiker-of-experience tackling that kind of travel - in extreme weather - with only basic clothes and few (or no) supplies. I have hik

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
