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

 A true-and-suspenseful horror tale of haunting, homicides and the hunt for triple-murderer, Daniel Laplante - as told by the cops that were there By Lt. Thomas Lane (Ret.)  Daniel Laplante - cold, calm, clever, calculating- Photo: YouTube   Elm Street  surfaces on four occasions in the Laplante saga: 1.) He  resided on Elm Street  in Townsend, Massachusetts 2.) He  kidnapped a woman  at gunpoint on  Elm Street, Pepperell , Massachusetts 3.) He was arrested and transported to Massachusetts State Police Barracks on Elm Street in Concord . 3.) He was  tried, convicted   and sentenced for the murders at  Superior Court , corner of  Elm Stree t and Gorham Street, Lowell, Massachusetts. When evil and cleverness reside in the same mind, the stage is often set for true horror. Such was the case with triple-murderer, Daniel Laplante . As a 16-year old , he quickly transitioned from: Minor thefts and breaking into homes To: Taunting and threatening a father and his two daughters as an unseen

Anna Horford let's fan know Al's value to the Boston Celtics

 Some fans of pro basketball just take the contrary view just to be...well - contrary , with no solid basis for their stand. Such was the case when when Al Horford's sister, Anna Horford, overheard an argument centered around the value of her brother to the Boston Celtics . No true Boston fan doesn’t love Al!! — Stephanie (@smars319) November 23, 2021 Al's value. Let's take a look at his team stats : Scoring: 4th at 13.1 PPG Rebounds: 2nd at 8.7 RPG Assists: 3rd at 3.5 APG Steals: 4th at 0.9 SPG Blocks: 1st at 1.9 BPG (tied with Giannis for 6th place in the NBA) Minutes: 6th at 29.4 MPG   One more thing about the blocks. That is new for Al . He is the only player over 29 years of age in the top-6 in blocks. Horford is 35. This gem-of-an-individual needs to prove nothing to Celtics fans, but I bet he needs to prove something to himself. Have I ever mentioned I love this guy?

Sign the Petition! Let's honor Tommy Heinsohn

  No longtime Celtics fan can watch games this year without a somewhat heavy heart. For the last 50 plus years, we have been blessed as a franchise to have Tommy Heinsohn, Mr. Celtic himself, as a part of the organization. Whether it be as a player, coach, or commentator, Tommy has been an instrumental figure for the green, and his presence is missed on every broadcast. Nobody embodied what it meant to be a Celtic more than Tommy, and I know I miss his energy and ferocity every time Scal claims the refs "made the right call" against the Cs. While Tommy obviously belongs on the Mount Rushmore of Celtics, he is often overlooked in his place among the greats of NBA history. Looking back upon his life, one would be hard pressed to find someone with a bigger impact on NBA basketball than Mr. Celtic. For those who are unfamiliar, let's do a quick review. Tommy is one of 2 people to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as both a player and coach (the other being the indomitable Len
