Late Night in the Golden State

   1st Quarter

Now this game tonight would be a nice matchup in the playoffs. Matchup to zone in on is how can the Wolverine keep up with the great Steph Curry. Al knocking down his first shot is a great sign! They have already shot way to many threes for my taste. Get to the damn hoop tonight, make the Warriors work on D! 

This Warriors D is very tough, Celtics have their hands full on both ends! Klay has five early, you don't want him getting hot. Love seeing JT jump the passing lane and getting the steal! Nice steal by the Wolverine and getting two on the other end. It's going to take a monumental defensive effort for the Celtics to win tonight. 

   2nd Quarter 

Choppy offense towards the end of the first cost the Celtics some points. On the other hand their D held up well against this potent Warriors offense. Need to see more aggression on the offensive end by taking the ball strong to the rack! Need to get some points out of the bench. 

DWhite is cold as ice lately. Nice to see Theis getting some early action, but guess what he's already got two fouls. We have an ugly defensive war going on tonight. This feels like a playoff game, the two top defensive teams in the league trading blows. I'm all in on seeing the Celtics exert their will on D! 

   3rd Quarter 

Celtics D has been the story of the game, let's hope it continues as we get into the third quarter. Time to go out there and put these Warriors to bed. Run them off of the court! The Wolverine has been everywhere tonight, making plays on both ends and even getting under Steve Kerr's skin! Gotta love it! 

Celtics ball movement has been much better the quarter. When that bad moves it makes for a much more enjoyable game and team. We need to see RWill develop that 10 to 15 ft shot. Call the Chief or Kevin and help this kid on his shooting and post moves. 

   4th Quarter 

Tonight's defensive effort has been extremely impressive! As I always write defense wins championships! Defense travels on the road, and can silence a home crowd! Keep this up and we are going to be the most dangerous team in the playoffs. 

Celtics fans where do you see this team going in the playoffs, I think they can make and win the Eastern Conference. Any thoughts by our intelligent readers? Give us some feedback. I will always bleed Green win or lose. Celtic Pride!

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.
