The Great Frank Sinatra Said My Kind Of Town Chicago

      1st Quarter

      Much better start tonight, tonight's effort is there unlike last night. This Bulls team is darn good. The Celtics passing and ball movement has been something to watch tonight. Gotta love how they are attacking the rim! Keep it up fellas! 
     Defense Defense Defense! So far the D has been pretty good. Not great, but the hustle is there. Now we need the execution, like the way DS is hounding guys up the floor. Tonight they need to reclaim their toughness on D. 

     2nd Quarter 

     Making the extra pass, is a sight for sore eyes. This is how you move the ball. Team basketball involves making the D work. Too much iso ball this season has doomed the Celtics. Pretty easy to game plan a team who lives for Iso ball. Need to keep the ball moving, setting screens, and making that extra pass. 

     Where's the D gone? DeMar DeRozan is destroying them as he always does. Is there a bullseye when he plays us? Certain guys just light up when they see the green and white and he's one of them. 

     3rd Quarter   

     RWill, saving possessions like it's his mission in life. Once again as he's done all year his effort and athleticism earns the Celtics extra chances to score. A guy like RWill is hard to find, a big who has a high basketball IQ and whose hustle and heart can't be measured. 

     The pace of the game favors the Celtics, yet the Bulls are still in this. Despite the Bulls missing some key pieces this team has come out to play. They are a very deep and well coached team. If the Celtics want this game they are gonna need to keep their play of pace going. PP coming in and making a huge impact!

     4th Quarter 

     Maturation of JT, on back to back possessions we saw him make the right plays. Showing the fans his basketball IQ has grown. For those media members who tear JT apart, watch the games with a clearer eye. His game is becoming better and better. To me he's the best player we have seen since the Truth. 

    As it stands the Celtics are going to fall to a depleted Bulls team and I'm getting that sick feeling again. Hopefully it's just the antibiotics I'm on, come on C's get your act together! Thankfully they have gotten it together. JRich nailing a big shot, RWill hitting the free throws to tie it up. JTs D on DeRozan showed some grit and balls. RWill with the go ahead free throws! Now it's up to the D! Celtics Win! Bleed Green!

In defense of Marcus Smart

 Let me make it clear first of all that I am totally against making a threat of any kind that even hints at harming, or certainly killing, another human being. Marcus Smart was wrong in doing so in the Celtics loss to the tanking Oklahoma City Thunder , and he deserved the one-game suspension. But to be honest, part of me loved that it occurred. . This type of thing can happen when a player gets to a point "beyond frustration" and is having a bad game. Marcus and his teammates have been under-performing generally - were in the process of losing to a pathetic-and-tanking Thunder team - and Smart was having a bad game . And he let loose verbally at the closest target - an NBA official. Wilt Chamberlain did a similar act versus referee, Earl Strom when Wilt was having his usual tortuous time at the free throw line (per Chicago Tribune's Sam Smith): ''He was in one of those 1-for-13s,'' recalls referee Earl Strom. ''Nothing was getting close. S

Did the Celtics Kevin McHale really have a wingspan of 8-feet?

According to many sources, the Celtics Kevin McHale did indeed have an estimated wingspan of 8-feet. One of those sources is Wikipedia, as seen below: Kevin McHale American basketball player DescriptionKevin Edward McHale is an American retired basketball player who played his entire professional career for the Boston Celtics. He is a Basketball Hall of Fame inductee, and is regarded as one of the best power forwards of all time. He was named to the NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time Team. Wikipedia Born: December 19, 1957 (age 61 years), Hibbing, MN Wingspan: 8′ 0″ Height: 6′ 10″ Spouse: Lynn McHale (m. 1982) NBA draft: 1980, Boston Celtics (Round: 1 / Pick: 3) Hall of fame induction: 1999 Number: 32 (Boston Celtics / Power forward, Center) Kevin was listed at 6'10" tall when he was drafted with the 3rd pick in the 1980 draft.
