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!

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
