KGs number to the Rafters, Celtics take on the Mavs

      1st Quarter

Celtics and Mavs trading blows to start, love seeing the Celtics attack Luka because he's a liability on D. Both Jays nailing threes, here we go on KG night! Celtics are forcing other Mavs players to beat them, wise defensive strategy. Celtics are looking sloppy on offense. Tatum nailing a three in Lukas face is Nasty!

Celtics are attacking Luka on both ends, that's the way you go at a star. Tire him out on both ends! Get at him physically, which could wear at him mentally. He's a great player but can be beat by this Celtics strategy. Anyone else excited to see KGs number going into the rafters! How I always wished he was a Celtic from day one of his career. With that said, he came in here and changed the culture of the Celtics. He was a guy who understands what it means to be and embrace being a Celtic! ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE! I just LOVE KG! I may even shed a tear seeing his number go up. 

      2nd Quarter

Luka gets the calls he doesn't deserve, while Tatum doesn't even get actual fouls called in general. That's just my two cents, Celtics fans any thoughts? Right now it's a defensive war, and a lot of offensive futility. GWill hustling his behind off and coming up empty. Need to see the Celtics attack the rim more, defensively they are on point. Offensively we need to get tighter. 

Celtics are as cold as the weather right now. The good thing is their D is locked in. Who is going to ramp up their game and get things going on offense. Will we see Ime draw up some plays to get the Jays going? JB throws down the HAMMER! Love the D as the Celtics force a pass out of bounds! Now we are seeing the Celtics move the ball, gotta love it. Nice to see the ball moving and the Celtics getting to the rack. JB HAMMERS the dunk over the defender! Both Tatum and Brown channeling their inner KG as the Mavs take a TO. 

      3rd Quarter

Marcus Smart getting inside is spectacular! Then watching him on D getting into it is even sweeter. The Wolverines game had become refined this season. It shows that even a veterans game can grow. He's the glue of this team, and it shows on the floor. Al Horford has played damn good today. He looks spry and his post up game has been tight. 

Luka is starting to heat up, we need to see that D from earlier that frustrated him. Smart with a huge three as the Mavs were rolling. Celtics are falling apart and have lost the lead. What the .... is happening. Need to find that other gear and get those fires burning. Ime getting a T, good that shows he's looking to get his guys going. 3:18 and it's the first foul on the Mavs?! Celtics not being treated well by the refs this quarter. 

      4th Quarter 

Pritch nails a three and the game is tied. Need to see a nice run by the C's as the fourth starts. Time for a signature run, starting on D and ending in baskets. Look at this D with the quick traps giving Dallas an issue. DWhite to RWill on the OOP after some great ball movement! When the ball is cooking it's tastes so good! Pritch with another three! 

This game is tight, way to tight for my liking. Want to see our big dawgs step up, hopefully the D can stand tough. Game is going down to the wire, you can see why both teams are very well coached. Come on guys finish STRONG! This game has my nerves going wild. Refs have stolen away this game today.

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.
