Celtics engine at high RPMs in Motor City, beating Pistons 102-93


      1st Quarter

      Celtics coming out hot, they seem to be making an effort to get JB started early. We need to see more of The Wolverine driving to the hoop! Need to continue to push the pace and bury the Pistons early. They have some decent players but are no where near the Celtics. As I've always said you need to destroy teams below you. 

     JRich and GWill the first two off the bench, I feel that's a recipe for success. Both players offer positives out there. JRich can go off when needed, and his D is contagious. GWill has become deadly from the corners, and he makes very heady basketball plays. 

     2nd Quarter

     Is it me or is it time to explore trading Romeo Langford? He's hurt way to often, and honestly this may be his lot as an NBA player. Lots of potential, but he may never meet it. Celtics have come out really well this quarter, extending their lead vs the Pistons. Talk about an organization who has lost their way. 

    Stagnant offense right now, get it going guys. Ime needs to learn to call timeouts when his team needs coaching and guidance when your offense isn't clicking. Need to see some, better ball movement, and cleaner offensive sets. With that said we get RWill off a nice pass from Smart. JT seems to be off right now, let's get him posting up and driving to the rack.   

     3rd Quarter

     Defensively loving where the Celtics are, need to see the offense follow suit. Nice to see the Wolverine crash the boards! Then on the next play driving to the hoop using his body for two! Love it! JT deserves praise for making the extra pass, a sign of his game evolving. 

     JT brings the THUNDER! Love seeing him man up and bring to the cup with authority! With his shot being off, going to the hoop is the place to be! Still not feeling that comfortable with the lead. If they can build it up to 20 by the end of the quarter would be ideal. JT with another EMPHATIC DUNK! Tatum with 19 in the quarter! 

     4th Quarter

     Time to nail down this win tonight, let's see if they can accomplish it. Is Romeo out there to showcase to a team looking for his skill set? Like a few guys from his draft class it seems like he's getting closer to his final season as a Celtic? Some of Danny's past drafts totally face planted with some of these picks over the years. Love ya Danny regardless. 

    Are Nesmith and Pritchard still part of this team?! Two guys who showed last season they could play barely see the floor. A few guys need to be dealt to open up minutes for these two gents. Right now they are being buried on the bench, when I feel they both could be assets on this team. Gotta love Grande tonight, being honest with his assessment of the season up to this point.

The Elm Street Nightmare

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
