Nets vs Celtics Clash of the Titans

    Test time approaches as the Nets come into town with their stars. Will someone knock Kyrie on his behind. Will KD and JT have a shootout. 

 1st Quarter

 Talk about a competitive start, both teams are trading blows! Love hearing the fans boo Kyrie. Celtics are moving the ball, and defensively doing what needs to be done. Happy Birthday to the Wolverine knocking back a three and one! 

 JT and JB are playing well to start. It's going to be a huge challenge because both KD and Kyrie are here to play. The fans seem into to the game which is nice to hear. I still want to see someone hit Kyrie. I'm trying to tell our readers the Celtics are for real! Still want to see the D step up though. Poor finish to end the quarter.

 2nd Quarter

 The blows continue as the game progresses. What a pleasant surprise on a Sunday afternoon. Refs have been shoddy so far. Favoring the Nets. Things are starting to fall apart as the Nets are surging offensively. Celtics need to tighten up and make a run before the half hits. 

  Need to get back to basics, RWill cleaning up the glass. Once again saving an offensive possession. JB getting a huge steal and the Celtics are making their run. Finish strong guys, you are just as good as the Nets. Win or lose your playing good, but not your best. Play your best come second half and success will be yours. 

 3rd Quarter

 Yet another shot for shot quarter, Nets gave basketball fans a glimpse into what they can be, yet the Celtics kept firing back and staying pat. Celtics fans now see that this team can beat the upper tier teams. After beating Memphis and Brooklyn in back to back Marquee matchups. 

  Despite a very high scoring game to this point, the Celtics have still made key defensive plays. On offense they haven't gone away from who they are. JT has been a huge piece to almost every offensive scoring the Celtics have had.  

 4th Quarter

 While most of the NBA says Brooklyn is the cream of the crop, I think it says something that the Celtics have played them Mano e Mano. This game has shown each of our key pieces make key plays. This Celtics group is a true team. 

  Can we talk about how great JT played, not only scoring the ball, but defensively and making key passes. This kid does it all! He pulled a Cedric Maxwell and through his play said get on my back and let's show the Nets who we are! This special young man deserves MVP considerations! JT ties Larry Joe Bird for most fifty point games in a Celtics uniform.

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.
