Celtics in a late night scrum with the Kings

    1st Quarter

     After getting out to a nice 11-0 start the Kings have fought back to make it a game. Celtics need to ramp up the D, they have missed a few assignments already. JB is using his body to get to the rack I love when he does that. JB just shoved Sabonis off him legally and drained the step back. Celtics three point shooting not very good at the start while the Kings are on fire. 

     GWILL stepping up on D drawing the charge. Offensively his shot has been off lately, but he's still doing the little things to make an impact on the court. Gotta love his progression this season. He went from a guy who I thought might get dealt, yet has shown hes a huge piece off the bench. 

    2nd Quarter

   JT coming out hot, knocking down a three. He liked it so much he did it again! Why not three in a row! Nothing but net! TaTuM is a stud! All those radio guys saying he should be traded are eating their words now! We here at the Sentinel have always been on the Tatum train! This postseason run has me really excited given how he's playing and how we play D!

   What's wrong with DWhites shot? His defense is stout, but we need to see a little O. PP has been maximizing his opportunity. Drilling threes and getting to the rack. If you all recall, the Sentinel has been high on this young blood since the summer! Come playoff time I bet he makes a huge shot or play! Loving this team right now, they are growing and building at the right time. Playoffs can't get here soon enough! 

   3rd Quarter

   March Madness going on as we watch this Celtics team roll! What we saw earlier in the year with this team was madness! Look at how far they have come, granted the first time they played the Kings they destroyed them. But coming off of beating the Warriors you would think there might be a lull, yet there isn't! They are playing with full effort and confidence! With that said let's hope the lead continues to grow this quarter.

  Anyone play cards?! The Jays are wild! The Jay duo is putting on a show on tonight! Scoring from everywhere, they are locked in offensively. Whether they are hitting threes or getting to the rack. It's beautiful to see! Look at this ball movement tonight, it's like one shining moment everytime they touch the ball! 

  4th Quarter

  Despite some great basketball the Celtics only lead by 13. They withstood a 14 nothing run by the Kings in the third. Let's look for the Celtics to continue moving the ball, and get their D in order and lock the Kings down! DWhite off the rebound pushing the rock and getting PP a three! Then once again DWhite finds him for another! These two guards have a nice rhythm with each other. 

  Celtics are becoming a force of nature out here! They have just as good a shot at a ring as anyone else this season. I know the playoffs are a different beast, but they are built for the post season. Defense, two studs and a team that works cohesively on offense. This is a team that believes in one another and they show it each game! They are working together but also for each other! Love it! 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

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. 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.
