Live From Orlando, The Celtics look to continue their Magic

     1st Quarter
      So far so good, once again the Celtics face an inferior team. Need to continue bringing the pain to them. Let's build on this early lead, by getting both JT and JB rolling. I want to see more screens and pick and rolls with this offense. How about some more Wolverine to RWill alley oops! 

     JB when in the flow of the offense, tends to be very successful. The team overall has thrown up enough bricks to build a nice new home. Will someone go to hoop please. Way to many outside shots, and they are allowing the inferior magic to stay in the game. Need to see a better effect come second quarter. 

    2nd Quarter

     Not liking what I'm seeing out there. Celtics seem flat and not ready to play. Gonna have to find another gear out there and get this thing going. Are they looking ahead to playing Brooklyn?! They better not. Ime needs to get these guys back into the flow offensively and continue to play hard D. 

     Now we are starting to see some separation. Let's keep the ball moving, and attack the damn rim! Stop giving Orlando life and letting them think they belong in this game. We get a lead and it evaporates. With under two minutes left let's get into it fellas and grab a bigger lead. 
     3rd Quarter

     Let's grab this game by the horns and grab the win, keep up the hard work on D, we do need to see some much better offense. Overall a nice start with JT and JB scoring on back to back plays. Why is Mo Bamba jacking up threes, this is what is wrong with today's NBA. They are three happy, and it makes me question the direction of NBA offenses.

    JB brings the HAMMER down on Mo Bamba! A Thor like slam that shook Mo to his core! Another JB drive leads to another duece! When things need to be taken care of, JB does it by going to the rack. I can't get over the dunk over Bamba, I could feel it like THUNDER during a storm. We need more dunks like that and less threes! Now look at this score after the third, that's what I'm talking about! 

     4th Quarter

     Al Horford is having a steady game tonight, double digits in points and rebounds. Gotta love how seamlessly Als return to Boston has been. There have been moments he has shown his age, but other times he looks as young as anyone. He's been a joy to watch this season. Need to save his legs for the playoffs! 

    GWill has become automatic from three, who in their right mind would have ever thought that would be written! I for one am not complaining about it. Not the biggest fan of the three, but you gotta be good at something! So keep on rocking GWill! I do believe we have an identity as a team, It's A DEFENSIVE MINDED TEAM! I LOVE IT!

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.
