Atlanta Enters the Garden - Celtics take them out, 107-98

Will the Hawks fly High tonight?! Let's hope the Celtics are ready to land haymakers and knock them out of the game early! 


   1st Quarter

   What are we looking for to start this game, for one let's not let the Hawks shoot the lights out. No need for a repeat of the game vs the Pacers and their lucky shooting. Defensive intensity needs to be from the moment the ball hits the Hawks hands.

   Scary sight seeing JB heading to the locker room. Let's hope it's nothing serious. We can't afford to lose him. He's a huge piece to the Celtics success this season. So far the Celtics have looked decent, need to see better ball movement. Defensively they seem to be more locked in than they were Sunday. Going to be a barn burner tonight. 

   2nd Quarter

   Not the start I expected, to me the refs have already reared their ugly heads. Let's ramp up the D guys, we need a nice run to get us back in the game. Who is going to bring the offense with no JB or JT? We need some PP action! Also where's the crowd?! Make some stinking noise! 

   No JB for the rest of the game, with a right ankle sprain. That's a huge loss for the Celtics tonight. His ability to drive, hit jumpers, and nail threes are going to be tough to fill. Can the Celtics please play some D?! I have this lingering feeling the refs may dictate this game in the Hawks favor. 

   3rd Quarter

   Story of the first half, way to MANY TURNOVERS, and Horrible three point shooting. Your calling card is supposed to be defense and right now, it sucks. What a disappointment that first half was. Thankfully there is time to come back and pull out this win. 

  Nice run by the Celtics, they seem to be more under control. Playing with intensity on both ends! Ball movement seems very crisp right now, let's go guys! A heck of a run to get us all the way back in the game! All tied up, now it's time to get a lead and run with it. Great job by the C's in the third, now it's all about winning the 4th. 

   4th Quarter 

   Can DWhite be the second option to JT as we enter the fourth. He showed us in the third he can deliver, time to continue to endear yourself to the fans DWhite! Kid is a winner and unafraid of the moment! He's a great fit for this team! 

   Celtics keep landing HayMakers! Need to keep up the intensity! Love how they are moving the rock and getting good shots. Defense has also stepped up this half! Despite losing JB the rest of the team is stepping up. Side note why does Scal have to be so annoying! 

   Tonight's game has been a tale of two halves, the first half looked like the Celtics earlier in the year. Second half has been the team we know and love as of late! I wonder if on the TNT broadcast the audio or video went out. GWill has become Me Big Time, Mr 3! Hitting some big shots tonight! How about that huge block by the Wolverine!!! Bleed Green! Tonight we showed heart! 🍀☘️

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.

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
