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

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

Rick Barry belittling Bill Russell on TV revealed the real fool

 It happened on national TV during the 1981 NBA Finals . Two of the announcers were Rick Barry and Bill Russell . When asked who was in a photo passed to Barry, Rick responded, "I don't know. Looks like some fool over there (referring to Russ) with the watermelon grin on. Russell repeatedly indicated the photo was of KC Jones , but Barry would have none of it. Worth watching. Russ vs. Rick Barry! The "fool with the watermelon grin" wasn't Bill. It was Barry. Don't believe it was racial, but the two didn't get along. Russ was clearly pissed. Rick Barry - Watermelon Grin https://t.co/NrUSkzrwZH via @YouTube — Tom Lane (@CelticsSentinel) September 24, 2021 Bill responded with, "That was K. C. That wasn't me. That was K. C." Then Barry tried to pass the photo to Bill, and Russ wanted none of that either. "No. I don't want them" is how Russell responded, clearly pissed, but still maintaining that aura of class and composure. Alth
