The Heat is On, Celtics take on Miami tonight.

   1st Quarter 

   RWill needs to neutralize Bam tonight, along with Al. What is with those Miami uniforms, sometimes simple is the best way to go. Need to jump on this team being short handed tonight. That first two points of the game came off of some excellent passing! Tatum to Smart to RWill for the JAM! 

  JT and JB showing how it's done on offense. They both have that natural ability to hit those mid range jumpers. It's been a team effort on offense with all five starters getting on the board. If their D can sustain it's intensity they will be able to frustrate this short handed Heat team. The sooner the Celtics light them up, the sooner we don't need to see those ugly uniforms.

   2nd Quarter 

  Celtics need some energy, slowly this short handed Heat team is chipping away at this lead. At such a slow pace this writer may have nodded off a bit. Celtics need to get things in gear and push pace of play and get the tempo up. The zone is wreaking havoc right now.

  Celtics are in dire need of shooters, look at the Heat, a guy like Robinson on the Celtics would be a nice fit. What about a guy like Max Strus, who had a cup of coffee with the Celtics. We chose to let him go and hold on to a guy like Carson Edwards who now lives in the G league. 

   3rd Quarter 

   Need to see the Celtics assert themselves and put the Heat to bed. Off to a good start, seeing JT and JB nailing threes. While to me they are not high percentage shots I will gladly accept them when need be. I still prefer to see this offense go to the hoop. Ever since the Wolverine came back it's been a much different defensive team. 

   Trade deadline approaches, can Brad come up with a diamond in the rough. Will there be any takers for Shroeder, can we throw Romeo into that trade as well?! I don't see a huge trade coming, but why not see what's out there and bring in a guy who can sure up this bench. If JRich saw more consistent minutes he can deliver. PP seems to get lost on Imes bench and that kid has the it factor.

   4th Quarter 

   Up by 24, what's the objective for Ime? Keep your foot on the gas! No need to let up, run, push the pace, and get to the cup! Grind the Heat into the Garden floor and then send them out into the cold. JB has some nifty moves he uses to get to the hoop. 

  Let's look ahead to next game vs the Hornets. A team who we are chasing, a team we also owe some payback to. There are winnable games coming up, let's get a nice win steak going. Time to climb up the Eastern Conference standings. Bleed Green Celtics fans!

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.
