Celtics are North of the Border Tonight


 1st Quarter

So no RWill for at least a minimum of 4 to 6 weeks. That's a huge loss to this team, especially given how dominate this group has been. With that said tonight's game will not have our studs, JB and JT. What does that mean overall, does the seeding in the playoffs matter?! Is this a good thing that the Jays are getting this break tonight?! Any thoughts Celtics fans? 

Will tonight be a coming out party for 3Smith? Given the lack of healthy guys we should get to see him play and expect him to play well. One thing we learned last season is given play he can ball. It would be nice to see him and PP get some time out there together. Nothing about tonight is ideal but fully expect this group to play hard on both ends. 

Celtics are holding their own so far tonight, gotta say the effort is there! They came to compete and shock the Raptors! This shows to the heart of this team, despite injury and time to heal for the Jays they want to win. Tonight's offensive execution has been stout. 

2nd Quarter

PPs play in that first quarter shows this kid is special. What he gave us last season was a glimpse into who he is. In summer league he was lighting it up. Early this season he didn't get much run due to a clogged backcourt. Once guys were moved out, his game has grown immensely! Love his confidence and the way he plays the game. 

DWhites aggression in today's game is a pleasant sign. He going to need to be big in the playoffs now that RWill is hurt. You can use him in many different line ups. We know he plays well with the Jays. He and PP have developed quite the chemistry. Now is the time for everyone to step up and grow! Despite RWill being out this is still a damn good team. The Jays are studs, and the Wolverine is ready to take a bite out of everyone. 

If the Celtics were healthy they would be crushing the Raptors. 

3rd Quarter

 Celtics D came up huge in the third, working as a well oiled machine. Blocking shot after shot! Talk about grit and balls from an undermanned team! Win or lose this team should make everyone proud. Watching Hauser shoot threes is nice he brings the rain when he shoots! 

PP and DWhite both playing very well tonight. Doing everything you would ask of them. Making the right passes and nailing shots when given the opportunity. This team today has taken on the Wolverines mentality and attitude. Gotta love it. 

4th Quarter 

Heck of a win for the Lady Huskies! Let's Go! 

Celtics have come to play tonight, effort, heart, and hard nosed D. DTheis posterized the Raptors D in the fourth with a two handed hammer dunk! Everyone in green tonight truly left it all on the floor. The ball movement has stayed true to who they are as a team! 

It's getting tight tonight, yet this group just keeps making plays! 3Smith with a huge three from the corner! Gotta love his confidence, love this kid! He and Pritch are going to be the steals of that draft! Poor execution at the end of the 4th as we head to OT. 

Overtime

DWhite to the line, starting overtime off right! Celtics had a chance to go up five but it just bounced out. This Raptors team isn't very impressive IMO. As I said earlier if the Celtics have the Jays they roll all over this weak Raptors team. A winnable game yet not having the Jays at the end hurt the Celtics. Be proud of this team, but damn they deserved to win. Bleed Green Celtics Fans!

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
