Celtics take sting out of Hornets, 113-107


     1st Quarter

     Hitting the ground running tonight, it's early but the Celtics energy is high, and they are ready to compete! This Hornets team is quite nicely constructed, and will be tough to beat in this must win game. Imagine if instead of going after Kemba we had kept Terry Rozier. We would have him and The Wolverine as a one two punch as interchangeable pieces. 

     Last five games four of the Celtics five starters are leading in plus/minus. Can our readers tell us who? Talk about hustle with Al keeping the ball alive, then RWill gets it to JT for two, huge play early on. Let's hope that report earlier today saying JB may want out if things go south. If I'm Brad I'm making sure he knows we will find a way to make it work. With how he and JT are playing it will work, just need the horses around them. 

     2nd Quarter

     JRich for three! If I am Brad Stevens he's a key piece of the bench. He can do it all, threes, tweener, getting to the hoop and willing to get down and dirty on defense. Tonight he's straight balling out, he's having a damn good year. So far the second quarter is being kind to the Celtics as they build their lead to 10. 

    Has being an All Star become more about popularity, or about talent? Here's another quarter has the All Star game lost its luster? I remember a time when watching the All star game meant something now it just feels like blah. The way they do it having two guys pick their team like it's kickball in the school yard. It's just garbage, it is largely based on popularity honestly and not about talent and or time played. 

     3rd Quarter

     Assassin Al from Deep! Corner threes abound! Nice to see Al nail a few his shot has been off lately. Celtics coming out again throwing hay makers. The Wolverine nailing a few threes, looking good out there. Still need to step up the D I  feel to keep the Hornets at bay. 

     Scal tries to be Tommy on bad calls but it just isn't working. When Tommy felt a call was wrong he made all of us feel it. Scal just seems to go thru the motions. JRich nailing another trey, going to need him tonight. It's a tight one right now. What a find by JT faking the three getting it to GWill down below! Talk about a maturing player we have there! Making the extra pass, which was the high percentage play!

     4th Quarter

     A must win fourth quarter is upon us Celtics fans. Wrote a piece earlier feeling that this was a winnable game, but I changed my tune to this being a must win game. This quarter will be a huge part to show if this team is for real. Which I feel they are. Now it's time to prove it. Celtics fans how y'all feeling? 

    
  JRich has been nailz all game, I'm telling you don't trade him, he's a nice piece on this team. Need to finish this game strong fellas. So far they have played ok this fourth. Points have been at a minimum so far. JB nailing a huge jumper, followed by the Wolverine with huge free throws. Yet some how the game is tied, why because former Celtic Scary Terry drained a three. Celtics have reclaimed the lead off of two JT free throws. RWill with the block of the night! Wolverine hits two big free throws! 

    Nice win fellas! Bleed Green!

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
