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! 🍀☘️

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.
