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. 


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!

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?

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.
