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

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?

Sign the Petition! Let's honor Tommy Heinsohn

  No longtime Celtics fan can watch games this year without a somewhat heavy heart. For the last 50 plus years, we have been blessed as a franchise to have Tommy Heinsohn, Mr. Celtic himself, as a part of the organization. Whether it be as a player, coach, or commentator, Tommy has been an instrumental figure for the green, and his presence is missed on every broadcast. Nobody embodied what it meant to be a Celtic more than Tommy, and I know I miss his energy and ferocity every time Scal claims the refs "made the right call" against the Cs. While Tommy obviously belongs on the Mount Rushmore of Celtics, he is often overlooked in his place among the greats of NBA history. Looking back upon his life, one would be hard pressed to find someone with a bigger impact on NBA basketball than Mr. Celtic. For those who are unfamiliar, let's do a quick review. Tommy is one of 2 people to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as both a player and coach (the other being the indomitable Len
