On a cool Spring night, the Wolves enter the Garden!



    1st Quarter

Boston welcomes KAT and the Wolves, another challenging opponent. A team that earlier in the year beat us and all their key players were out. They are playing just as good as anyone. Expect the Celtics to try to shut KAT down and force other guys to beat them. It always comes down to D, and we know this group takes pride on the defensive end. Let's Go C's and grab the bull by the horns. Didn't they say the game starts at 6, by my watch it's past 6. 

Garden sounds like it's rocking already! The Wolverine can have his way getting to the rack tonight. He's off from three right now, but his passing looks crisp. JB for THREE! Right now he's trucking, going 3 for 3 early one. He's the spark that's lighting the fire tonight. Tatum getting inside using his physique to get two! Love Tatum's D on KAt right there! RWill clearing up the rebound with the JAM! Celtics D is leading to offensive joy, keep this rolling guys! 

Side note KAT is 1000 times better than t he Brow. RWill is the master of saving and or getting the Celtics extra offensive possessions! Tonight's going to be a barn burner. The Wolves play tough, gritty ball. PP is dripping with confidence nailing threes tonight! 

    2nd Quarter 

The way the EC is right now feels a bit like the NBAs own March Madness! So many teams jockeying for position it's so exciting. DWhite with a three and now a chance for an and 1! Going to need his offense come playoffs! Defensively he's stout and very cerebral, when he's on his offense comes hard. Intriguing Final Four, Nova vs Kansas and Duke vs NC. My money says winner of the ACC clash takes the title. 

Celtics team D is swarming, and causing problems for the Wolves. Calling card of this team is DEFENSE AND ITS AMAZING! They switch 1 through 5 better than any team in the NBA. The numbers prove it but when you watch this group it's true defensive glory. Celtics are starting to cook right now, extending the lead to 15. Nice seeing Nesmith back, this kid has skills and given more time he will prove that. Just like that crashed the boards gets the two! 

Side Note, isn't it great hearing Mike Gorman on the call. His voice brings comfort to all Celtics fans. GOT IT! We miss ya Tommy. 


    3rd Quarter

After a good defensive performance, Celtics are rolling the Wolves. They have missed a few plays defensively but overall they are doing their jobs. You can't go wrong with 70 plus points in the half! What's becoming evident about their O is, it's comes off their great D and great ball movement. It's amazing when a team trusts each other out there. Need to keep it rolling as we enter the third. 

Who is the Celtics X-factor come post season? I'll tell you, it's their Defense! Collectively as a team if they play defense at the highest level, no one and I mean no one is beating them. When you can force the other teams in the NBA to look disorganized, it's a wrap. Yes a playoff series is different but there is just something special about this D.

Wolves are chomping away at this lead. Celtics need to clean up their offense right now, way to many threes. Get to the rim! It's DUNK CITY! 

               Celtic Pup Approves!

   4th Quarter 

JT for MVP! JT for MVP! JT for MVP! 

It's closing time, let's make it quick and rest guys up for the Raptors. Anyone else love seeing DTheis back. He just fits the Celtics like a glove! Willing to do anything when called upon. Love seeing Three Smith out there giving his entire body to the team with reckless abandonment! The fire he brings to each play is admired. When I get to work tomorrow I'm going in the door with that kind of controlled force. 

JT and JB continue to look and play like basketball studs. These two never cease to amaze me with how much their games have grown. The ceiling for these two is.., honestly skies the limit. If both guys never stop practicing and getting better both numbers will be in the rafters. Before that we need to see multiple rings. Straight kudos to Ime for starting to unlock their true greatness, imagine if this trio sticks together. Along with the Wolverine and RWill let's go! 

Bleed Green! 


That's right it's a double Gino night!

The Elm Street Nightmare

 A true-and-suspenseful horror tale of haunting, homicides and the hunt for triple-murderer, Daniel Laplante - as told by the cops that were there By Lt. Thomas Lane (Ret.)  Daniel Laplante - cold, calm, clever, calculating- Photo: YouTube   Elm Street  surfaces on four occasions in the Laplante saga: 1.) He  resided on Elm Street  in Townsend, Massachusetts 2.) He  kidnapped a woman  at gunpoint on  Elm Street, Pepperell , Massachusetts 3.) He was arrested and transported to Massachusetts State Police Barracks on Elm Street in Concord . 3.) He was  tried, convicted   and sentenced for the murders at  Superior Court , corner of  Elm Stree t and Gorham Street, Lowell, Massachusetts. When evil and cleverness reside in the same mind, the stage is often set for true horror. Such was the case with triple-murderer, Daniel Laplante . As a 16-year old , he quickly transitioned from: Minor thefts and breaking into homes To: Taunting and threatening a father and his two daughters as an unseen

Anna Horford let's fan know Al's value to the Boston Celtics

 Some fans of pro basketball just take the contrary view just to be...well - contrary , with no solid basis for their stand. Such was the case when when Al Horford's sister, Anna Horford, overheard an argument centered around the value of her brother to the Boston Celtics . No true Boston fan doesn’t love Al!! — Stephanie (@smars319) November 23, 2021 Al's value. Let's take a look at his team stats : Scoring: 4th at 13.1 PPG Rebounds: 2nd at 8.7 RPG Assists: 3rd at 3.5 APG Steals: 4th at 0.9 SPG Blocks: 1st at 1.9 BPG (tied with Giannis for 6th place in the NBA) Minutes: 6th at 29.4 MPG   One more thing about the blocks. That is new for Al . He is the only player over 29 years of age in the top-6 in blocks. Horford is 35. This gem-of-an-individual needs to prove nothing to Celtics fans, but I bet he needs to prove something to himself. Have I ever mentioned I love this guy?

Sign the Petition! Let's honor Tommy Heinsohn

  No longtime Celtics fan can watch games this year without a somewhat heavy heart. For the last 50 plus years, we have been blessed as a franchise to have Tommy Heinsohn, Mr. Celtic himself, as a part of the organization. Whether it be as a player, coach, or commentator, Tommy has been an instrumental figure for the green, and his presence is missed on every broadcast. Nobody embodied what it meant to be a Celtic more than Tommy, and I know I miss his energy and ferocity every time Scal claims the refs "made the right call" against the Cs. While Tommy obviously belongs on the Mount Rushmore of Celtics, he is often overlooked in his place among the greats of NBA history. Looking back upon his life, one would be hard pressed to find someone with a bigger impact on NBA basketball than Mr. Celtic. For those who are unfamiliar, let's do a quick review. Tommy is one of 2 people to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as both a player and coach (the other being the indomitable Len
