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

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. 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. Red Auerbach, in yet another heist, brought in both McHale and center Robert Parish (via trade) prior to the Celtics' 1980-81 Champion

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
