The Heat is on, as the Celtics hold Tommy Heinsohn night at the garden.

 Tonight the Celtics honor the only man to be a part of every championship banner that hangs in the rafters. The great player, coach and announcer Tommy Heinsohn, a man we all miss on the broadcast. A man we all considered family because he was the voice of our beloved Celtics. A man who if you had the chance to meet him as I did, was an even better person than all his basketball achievements. The man we all remember swearing on air at a bad call vs Jordans Bulls. The man we here at the Sentinel honor with our award based on his Tommy point system. I could go on and on about him. 

1st Quarter

Refs are already making a negative impact on the game in favor of Miami. Lowry is already starting his childish antics and flailing about. JB seems to be locked in from the start. He tends to be our lightning out of the bottle at the starts of game. His game is very smooth out there. What we need to see from him now is the ability to get guys involved like JT does. 

JTs ability to use his body to get to the rack with or without the ball is huge. It gives him so many options to pick apart the opposing D. His game is so well rounded now that he can become unstoppable. The way he has matured this year is a thing of beauty. He's going to have to continue to grow as a player to help this team make a run in the playoffs. 

2nd Quarter

Daniel Theis may end up being the steal of the trade deadline. His game, now that RWill is out perfectly suits this Celtics group. He is willing to do all the little things necessary to win. You need him to D up anyone he's on it, make the right pass he's there. He's unafraid to go and bang for boards. Offensively he fits and can score when his number is called. I for one was sad when he was traded away but glad he's back where he belongs. 

Al Horford is as cool as the other side of the pillow. Another guy we lost who now has come back and fits like a glove. His game as well will need to continue to be solid as RWill mends. Al as we have seen this season can do EVERYTHING. He is just a solid player who's skill set fits being a perfect role player. He and DTheis are going to need to come up big until RWill is ready. 

3rd Quarter

Celtics have found themselves in a dog fight tonight. This my friends is what the post season will feel like. The crowd tonight is giving off playoff vibes. What's going on with GWills shot lately? The laser point accuracy seems to be falling. Lately he isn't hitting his threes and I feel he's thinking about it too much. When he drives he tends to get to the hoop, he also has the ability to post up with that said we are gonna need him hitting those threes in the playoffs. 

JT and JB lately have fed off of each other very well. They are building nice chemistry that's essential to success for the rest of the year and the playoffs. Both guys have a great knack for getting each other high percentage shots. We know come playoffs everything will be magnified and these two will be ready. Expect great things as we finish the regular and season and enter the playoffs. 

4th Quarter 

Refs have seemed to flex their might right now, making some choice calls that are not in favor of the greatest organization in sports the Boston Celtics. This is the problem with the NBA the refs feel they deserve the spot light. Well they don't, and it gives certain teams an advantage like it has with the Heat tonight. 

Shots haven't fallen tonight, it's to bad because this was a winnable game. RWill we miss ya, making shots we miss ya. Hey refs get out of the Garden! Tommy is in heaven and letting out very choice words. Need to bounce back on Friday against a team we owe some payback to. Bleed Green Celtics fans and keep the faith! 

Best Regards the Celtic Knight

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
