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.

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
