It's Time For Payback!

After the Pistons ended their win streak, the Celtics have their shot at revenge! Yes I said it Revenge of the Celtics! Take how you played last game and duplicate it today! 

     1st Quarter

     Not an ideal start on either end from my perspective. Defense and offense seems to be a bit out of sorts. Good time out by Ime to get this group refocused. Need to see the D steady the storm and slap the Pistons back down to earth. Celtics coming out hot after the time out. Let's go guys, I want this win! 

     RWills presence makes a huge difference out there. As does the Wolverine! Who we were missing last game. These two gents are huge pieces to Banner 18. With them locked in this season we can be unstoppable especially on D. Both the Wolverine and RWill save and get us extra possessions! Nice to see Celtics with the lead after the first! 

     2nd Quarter
     Not liking the flow of this game early on. Why? The Pistons are hanging around and they need to be planted in the ground! Need to see the D shut them down, take away their best player and make the other guys beat you. We need to see JB and JT go to town and knock them out! 

    Defense seems to be picking up, yet the Pistons are still hovering around. Come on guys get your flow going, go on a nice run and end the second with a good lead. Where are we gonna find that run from? To me the Pistons are playing above themselves because they have a good coach. 

     3rd Quarter

     JB coming out hot in the third. Leading by example getting to the rack. Overall you can not lose to this garbage team again. This writer feels his blood boiling right now. Back to back buckets by the Jays and the lead is back! Come on time to make a run! Time to expose the rookie Cunningham on D, he doesn't play D well at all!

   RWill with a duece after some excellent ball movement! Still this game is to close for comfort. Need to pile up these wins against bad teams like the Pistons. It's just the regular season but let's keep our pedal to the metal! Not sure why it's such an early start. I prefer a 6 or 7 o'clock game on Saturdays. I know no one wants to hear my complain. 
     4th Quarter 
     Way to many threes and misses today. It's games like this that frustrate me, go to the damn hoop. Also Scal and Mannix stink! My ears hurt, they are both so boring, I need Mike and Tommy. Great out of bounds set for two! This game is way to close for my for my taste. This game makes me want to chuck my laptop out the door. 

   Refs not allowing any flow with the way they are calling the game. It's always about them and their tight jerseys!  I will say the Celtics are finding their mojo and moving the ball leading to a nice run! Up by ten finish them now! It's wonderful to see PP getting a chance to show why myself and Tom felt in summer he could be a big piece to this team! For once Bey isn't playing off his behind against us! TaTuM, with the huge jam to basically seal the game! Bleed Green!

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?

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.
