The Celtics roadshow hits Mile High

   1st Quarter 

    JB step back for three! Nice start fire the Good guys! JT with the pull up in the Joker's face! These two studs are becoming unstoppable, offensively they both possess incredible skills. This entire team lately has been fun and exciting to watch. They play with a purpose and want to win every play! This team has a very special feel to me personally. 

   It's been a long time since we have witnessed such greatness on the defensive end. Those teams with KG at the helm were stout and worth watching on D. It's so good to see an NBA team value defense as this group does! Kudos to Coach Ime Udoka for getting this group to buy in to the defensive end!

   2nd Quarter

   Celtics getting everything they want offensively, with that said they still left points out there! Great job in the first let's see if it keeps rolling into the second. How about Ime getting Daniel Theis in the game early and guess what our old friend has made an impact. Theis has always been a guy I liked. No ego and willing to do what the team needs! 

   PP, getting the rock from JT nailing the three! Early this season we here at the Sentinel felt he would be a great compliment to the Jays. A guy who can shoot with confidence and skill. Celtics need to continue to capitalize with Joker on the bench. Question here is the league gunning for JT? He gets very few calls and they seem to T him up very quickly. As I've always said NBA refs suck and want the attention on them. 

   3rd Quarter

  Celtics bench so far has 29 points, led by PP with 12 and he's 4/4 shooting the three! Celtics objective this third is to come out swinging and knock the Nuggets out! If they do that, the starters can rest in the fourth and get ready for OKC tomorrow night! How great is it seeing Eddie House doing games for the C's. Loved him in green, his shot was lit and smooth as butter. He made such huge plays when we one the title. 

   JB coming out ready to put them to sleep, but the Nuggets are coming out with some fire themselves. Do not let them get any momentum or hope, put your foot on their throat and say buh bye! Ime with the TO, smart man right there. Settle this down and get back into your game fellas. I expect a huge Celtics run right now. Great drive my the Wolverine and great D by Al. I'd say that timeout was beneficial! Celtics are rolling right now, they are road juggernaut's! 

   4th Quarter 

   Where do we want the Celtics to finish in the East? Do they need to avoid the Nets? As we see the Celtics climb the standings, does it matter where they finish?! Given how damn good they are on the road does it even matter. Defense travels anywhere, as we have been seeing this team dominates on the road. 

  This season so far has dealt with it's challenges especially early on. But through that adversity this team has grown up in front of our eyes. What we are seeing now is the vision of Brad and Ime in some way Danny Ainges, why you ask because alot of these guys were brought in by Danny through the draft. I'm sure he's in Utah saying now that's the team I envisioned. Bleed Green Celtics fans! Something special is blossoming! 

PS that JT Dunk on the Joker, Posterized!

Another 30 for 30 for the Jays!

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. Wikipedia Born: December 19, 1957 (age 61 years), Hibbing, MN Wingspan: 8′ 0″ Height: 6′ 10″ Spouse: Lynn McHale (m. 1982) NBA draft: 1980, Boston Celtics (Round: 1 / Pick: 3) Hall of fame induction: 1999 Number: 32 (Boston Celtics / Power forward, Center) Kevin was listed at 6'10" tall when he was drafted with the 3rd pick in the 1980 draft.
