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!

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. Red Auerbach, in yet another heist, brought in both McHale and center Robert Parish (via trade) prior to the Celtics' 1980-81 Champion

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
