Celtics visiting Indy

Indy is special because it's the birthplace of the great Larry Joe Bird! With that said time for the Celtics to go and grab another win! Isn't it nice to hear Mike Gorman's voice!

    1st Quarter

    JB starting things off right, he has the great ability to start games off HOT! His jumper is so silky smooth. He's very stealth at getting to the rack! You have to love the fact that he and JT can be interchangeable at leading this team. 

   Not loving the D to start, Indy is hitting everything they are throwing up. Today is going to be track meet. Celtics need to hunker down on D, if they don't we are going to be in for another dogfight. Yesterday was a slugfest up until the end. Today has that feel already. I hope I'm wrong. 

    2nd Quarter

    PP is going to continue to make this team better. Payton offers this team a solid point guard, who can also knock down shots like an assassin. He's becoming a huge piece to the second unit. What's great about him is his fearlessness. 

   DWhite is not only a huge piece to the second unit, but he could be on that closing unit in the fourth. He has all the skills necessary, defense, passing and the ability to score. Kids got winner written all over him. He's Marcus the Wolverine Smart 2.0!

    3rd Quarter

    Pacer have shot the ball out of their minds so far. Will the Celtics D tighten up and get back into the game? I really hope so, this Pacers team plays hard but in all reality I expect tough Celtics D to get us back in the game. Need to see JB and JT take over this quarter to get things going. 

   Celtics are self destructing right at the start of the third. Seems like a very unbalanced team out there right now. We better see some effort out there. Don't get pantsed by the Pacers, these are the games that measure the heart of a team. I hope we see it. 

    4th Quarter 

    Time for a nice run, the game is within reach tonight. Down by only nine after a crap first half and rough start to the third. Defense needs to be the key, with some timely offense. The run needs to go down now! 

   Buddy Hield always plays off his behind vs the Celtics. Did the Celtics offend him at some point. Not looking very good right now. Still plenty of time but today's feel just isn't there. This feels like earlier in the year, a game they coulda, shoulda won, but may ultimately lose. Guys hitting threes I've never heard of now. Joke of a game tonight!

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.
