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!

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
