It's a showdown in the Windy City, could it be a possible playoff matchup?


 1st Quarter

Celtics coming out really well tonight, with four points off turnovers. Tatum with a pure jumper off the jab step. Are we looking at a possible playoff matchup, if so the Celtics have played Chicago well. Except for that loss early in the year when they lost that large lead. In all honesty I don't think the Bulls have anyone to stop the Jays. 

Against this Bulls team you can get to the rack with ease. There is no real dominant post player on D. The way the Celtics can move the ball, this Bulls D has no chance. Celtics are a little three happy right now, let's get back to driving and cutting. Celtics D seems prepped to stop the Bulls tonight. Switches are crisp and we are challenging every shot. 

2nd Quarter

Great field goal percentage in that first quarter, those are the kinda stats we want to see. Tatum finding PP for Three! PP fits perfectly with Tatum, because of how he can pass out of the double team. DWhite has a very swift way of getting to the cup. These moments are going to need to go down come playoffs.

If these Celtics can hold down the fort in the first round, they will be even stronger in the playoffs once RWill is back. By Rob being out it forces everyone else to step up, and that then makes this team even better. In all honesty this team trusts one another to be their very best. When guys trust and are on the same page let's just say they can be unstoppable!  

3rd Quarter

Smart doing his thing, the Wolverine is out there drawing charges! We are looking at the defensive player of the year, he just changes everything on that end of the floor. He is the captain of this staunch defense, if the NBA doesn't see it they are blind. The Wolverine not only has the skills needed on D, but he's very cerebral on D. He also has heart on that end. He's got my vote, if I had one. 

This Eastern Conference is so tight this season, it's going to be interesting when matchups are solidified. Who do Celtics fans want to see in the first round?! The talk is to avoid Brooklyn, but they have a lot of holes on both ends of the floor IMO. If the Celtics pull this out, tomorrow night will give us a bit of a clearer picture of who they may play. Man this is gonna be fun as the regular season finishes. 

4th Quarter 

Whoever ends up playing these Bulls in the playoffs may have a walk in the park. If it's the Celtics I like our chances. As the lead balloons maybe it's time to get the starters out. Time to get some rest before we head to Milwaukee. The Bucks are rested and ready to roll. My ideal ECF would feature the Celtics and Bucks. Talk about a slugfest of epic proportions! 

Let's talk about the bench can we, I love how hard they play. We are gonna need them to come up big in the playoffs. PP is a killer from three, DWhite is crafty, and GWill is deadly. Solid team win tonight. Next up the Bucks in a battle of epic proportions!

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
