Another loss in a close contest: Spurs, 99 - Celtics 97

 


     1st Quarter 

     A non three point shooting team is hitting from everywhere. Are the Celtics going to put some hands up or just let this continue?! Defense is a huge part of the game and we gotta step it up! Come on now D time to lock it down! We need crisper switches! 

     Anyone else enjoy seeing JT post up?!I feel it could develop into the best part of his game. He's got the body and frame, plus the quickness to do it to anyone! JB getting to the hoop is another sight for sore eyes. If these two continue the maturation process of going to the hoop, watch out because they can be unstoppable. 

     2nd Quarter 

     RWill with the steal and then leads his own fast break! Look at that a big who can run the break! Active D and bring in the right place leading to an easy two for the C's. Now we need the rest of the team to get going and get us back into this second quarter. If we can put together a nice team effort, we can win this game! 

     Tonight's ball movement has been pretty enjoyable. JT has made some very good reads tonight and finding the right guys out there. While the ball movement has been good I still don't get why they all drift and hang out by the three point line. Let's use this ball movement to get to the hoop by getting into the lane. Easy shots please come on now! Overall though the effort seems to be there tonight. 

     3rd Quarter 

     The Wolverine saves the possession, and it results in a three! The key to this statement is the fact that Marcus does those little things that end up being big things. What could have been an empty possession turned into points. The Wolverine has grown into a complete player, why do I say that because his overall game has matured by making good decisions. 

     This Spurs team is very Scrappy and not afraid of anyone. Overall you have to adore how this group plays. Despite their below 500 record. That's how we should expect the Celtics to play every night. So far tonight the Celtics are clawing for this victory. 

     4th Quarter 

   For the fans? What do you want to see this quarter. Thoughts?! I'll give you mine, I want to see a combo of JT and JB establish themselves as fourth quarter closers! Cold blooded ice in the veins closers! Let's see what they can do once the game is tightening up! 

     So far the Celtics are right there, they need to find an answer for Murray that's for sure. It's nitty gritty time, here we go Celtics! Defense causing a shot clock violation! Imes adjustments so far are working. Yet the lead is still not in the hands of the good guys. DS and JT with some big buckets! JB getting to the hoop is like watching a ballerina! Guess who makes the big steal?! The WOLVERINE! JB with the hustle play causing a jump ball! Celtics were so close to getting the ball back, heartbreaking loss tonight.

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
