Big Tests Coming

Have the Celtics done enough studying, to pass some big tests over these next few weeks?! Will that superior defense shut down the better teams? 

      The Hawks, Grizz, Nets and Hornets await the Celtics as March kicks off! Talk about a major opportunity to show that the D and this team are for real! 

     It starts tonight, we all know the fits the Hawks have given the Celtics over the past few seasons. The last time we played them it took a huge comeback and JT performance to get us the win. Tonight we need to establish that defensive identity from the start. The Wolverine should give Trae Young a hard welcome the game foul to start things off! 

    Thursday's game really has my attention, the Grizzlies are one of the NBAs best teams. Led by Ja Morant who's on another level. Will the Celtics be able to scheme up a defense to slow him down? Will they force his teammates to beat us?! No matter what it's going to be must see basketball! 

   Sunday could be an epic showdown, as villains KD and Kyrie come into Boston. Now if I needed the Wolverine to do anything it would be planting Kyrie on his butt after a nice hard foul! Is this the game JT goes man to man with KD and pays him back for the playoffs?! To me the Nets are what's wrong with the NBA. Just my opinion! With that said the Garden should be rocking! 

    Finally we have to visit Charlotte who all year has stood up against us. They play a a brand of ball that really challenges the Celtics. The season is getting good, time to see where the Celtics measure up! 

    What's the best and worst case scenario these next four game?!? That's pretty self explanatory. What do you fans and reader's think?! My hope is 4-0 but I'll take 3-1! In my Celtics heart, I feel these games are going to spur a nice run to the top three of the East. Bleed Green!

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
