Motown Comes To Boston , 112-111 loss for Celtics breaks 9-game winning streak

 With an opportunity to win their 10th game in a row, the goal is simple, DESTROY Detroit! 

 

1st Quarter 

 Celtics D sets the tone and tells the rookie Cade Cunningham get that shot out of here! JB tends to be Mr 1st Quarter, coming out landing HayMakers. If the Celtics can grab the lead and put the pistons to bed early that would be a great way to head into All Star Weekend. Celtics ball movement look good so far tonight!

  We have a team that moves the ball and plays D?! Talk about a dream come true! The way the Celtics are playing is a joy to watch, the vibe and flow of this team is turning into something special. The Pistons have come to play tonight, with that said time to amp it up and make em feel unworthy to be on the floor with you. Daniel Theis gets welcomed back by the Boston fans! 

2nd Quarter 

Payton Pritchard and Aaron Nesmith are going to continue to see time on the floor. Be ready for both of them to make that jump into becoming key players on this Celtics roster. Aaron can become a pin point shooter, he's also willing to give up his body for this team. Payton can be a pass first PG, another guy willing to give up his well being to succeed.
 
GWills maturation and growth this season are spectacular! His three point shot is deadly. His D is stout, and his basketball IQ is up there. Label me in the summer as someone who didn't know if G had a spot on this team. Now label me as a guy who wants him and feels can be a key contributor to a playoff run. He is clearly a special talent and a willingness to do whatever it takes. 

3rd Quarter

Al Horford has been solid this season. Almost averaging a double-double this season. He will end up playing an even bigger role in the post season. His return to Boston has been monumental! He does a little of everything, he's like a great chef who uses so many ingredients to maximize flavor. 

 Way to close right now, Celtics need to get it going. What is going on right now, I know not all games are going to be 48 point wins. With that said come on fellas, get it in gear. Need to see tighter D, because right now it's making me sick. For some reason Bey always plays out of his mind vs us. It's extremely annoying, because you rarely hear about him, until he plays us. 

4th Quarter

Not very pleased to be trailing by one, can we get things going and make some stops on D?? String together some nice offensive sets. Build up a lead and never look back! This feel right now isn't very good. Thanks to GWill and Mr Hustle Nesmith we have a fighting chance! 

Derrick White, is built in the mold of Marcus Smart. Making huge defensive plays out there! Right now everyone is contributing out there. Al knocking down a three, JB and JT doing their thang! Need to close this out! Tatum to the rack with a huge JAM! Earlier in the 4th the feel of this game felt like the beginning part of the season. A sign of how this team has matured is why they are now in the lead. It's tight and coming down to the last shot tonight. Disappointing end.

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.

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
