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!!!

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
