Tough questions after lethargic loss to 76'ers


      1st Quarter

      What was that quarter all about, lack of energy, not very good ball movement. The Sixers came out to play while the Celtics are still stuck in Indiana. Offensively I'm watching a bunch of guys just standing around the three point line and it makes me sick. This is a total turn around from what they did the other night. This team looks out of sorts tonight. 

     I usually like watching the games because it's a nice escape from reality but so far tonight I want to turn off the game and watch anything else! My mind is already drifting to tomorrow night vs the Bulls. Not to mention Pat's vs Bills. I hope the next few quarters can keep Celtics fans engaged. 

     2nd Quarter 

     We all remember the Where's the Beef Commercial?! WHERES THE D!!! What is going on out there tonight, we win a few games in a row and we stop doing what got us there? You finally get yourself  back to 500 and this is the effort Celtics fans are stuck watching! At some point the question needs to be asked - is Ime the right coach?! I feel we have a better roster than last season but we are lacking in the coaching department. 

     What a non offensive explosion so far, 35 points is all they could muster up. 11 turnovers, absolutely no flow at all! Philly is a decent team but they are by no way 20 points better than the Celtics. I hope to a man at the half they decide to play with some pride. If not they are going to get run off the floor. If they play like this tomorrow night it will be a massacre. Instead of just standing around the three point line take the ball to the damn hoop! 

     3rd Quarter 

     So far the fight seems to be there, the Celtics have come out with some more pep in their step. It would be ideal to get this lead down to single digits. They need to get down and dirty defensively, offensively they need to start pushing pace of play. Tommy is yelling from basketball heaven and saying RUN! 

     Brad as you watch the game, keep in mind you need to find better pieces for the Jay Team! Let's make a move or two so we can make a run. The East is good but it's not unbeatable. The only team I would be afraid of is the Bucks. Everyone else can be beat. You have two young talented stars now get them some help that compliments there game. 

     4th Quarter 

     Chip, Chip, Chip, slowly the lead shrink's. Celtics have begun cutting into the Sixer lead. Question is can they make it all the way back? If we read the signs on the wall probably not. Now we get massive substitutions, is Ime waving the white flag? Honestly save the Jays for tomorrow's game. Because today's game is a dumpster fire. 

     As you can tell, not very pleased with tonight's efforts. Your not going anywhere with games like tonight. When you put on the green and white, you better come ready to play. That was not the case this evening. Both the Celtics and Bulls are coming off a loss. Let's see who wants it more. Bleed Green I always have and always will.

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
