A back to back in OKC


1st Quarter

If we were in the early portion of the season, I would suggest this could be a trap game. With how this team has been playing lately I fully expect to see their best despite being shorthanded. No Wolverine or RWill but I feel other guys will step up. I would focus in on PP tonight. 

PP is guy who now knows his role, and he is truly flourishing! His three point shot is LIGHTS OUT! His passing skills are growing, and he isn't afraid to get into the paint either. Defensively despite his size he's ready to step up against anyone. What's crazy is he didn't get much run early on yet look at him seize the moment he's been given lately. 

2nd Quarter 

What is the Jays ceiling, can they win multiple rings? I've always felt they can have a Jordan/Pippen affect on the league. Maybe not 6 titles, but at least a few! Each of them can become not only Celtic greats, but HOFs! Wouldn't it be nice to see their numbers in the rafters? Absolutely! I've been lucky enough to see them both live multiple times and they have that it factor! 

Overall this West Coast swing has been spectacular! The way this team has played like a team is music to Celtics fans eyes and ears! On both ends it's been a clinic on offense and defense. What gets me going the most is the defense! As great as it is to score the rock, shutting down your opponent is the best feeling! Not going to lie but Scal and Perk have been decent to listen to. 

3rd Quarter

JTs ability to drive to the hoop and score has become super impressive and an asset to his game. Watching him mature this season has been a joy. As Celtics fans we have to remember that we are now watching a young man ascend into a great all around player. Yet he's still growing as a great player, the greats never stop honing their game! 

JB can cut with the best of them, off a nice pass from JT he got to the rack. Let's talk about how his game is growing as well. His game is becoming more all around. He drives with authority, hits the tweener jumpers and can be deadly from three. He like JT isn't afraid to crash the boards. We do need to see more passing out of him. Like JT he continues to work and improve his game! 

4th Quarter 

Celtics have a commanding lead, as we start the fourth. The way these guys trust in one another is a huge asset going into the playoffs. A team that can trust one another is a team you don't want to mess with. No matter who gets the ball there is confidence that they will score and or make the right play. 

Who do our readers fear in the East? Share your thoughts with us, the team I fear.... Yes you guessed it the team led by the Greek! Over the years their matchups have always been close and we'll worth the price of admission! The Greek and Middleton always give their best against the Celtics. Not to mention you can underestimate the heart of a champion. With that said if they matchup Celtics in 7!

Bleed Green Celtics Fans!

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?

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.
