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!

Nik Stauskas adds "shooting with size" voiced by Brad Stevens

 As a 6'6" shooting guard, 28-year-old Nik Stauskas adds that shooting with size sorely needed by the Boston Celtics. Drafted 8th-overall by the Sacramento Kings in 2014, Stauskas has bounced around to various teams since then. Nik Stauskas' deal with the Boston Celtics includes non-guaranteed salary for the second season in 2022-23, a source tells @celticsblog . — Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) March 4, 2022 Nik has never averaged more than 9.5 points per game in the NBA, but Boston is most likely counting on his production for Grand Rapids in the G League as the incentive to sign him. In 17 games thus far, he has averaged 24.7 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 4.8 APG - while shooting 50% on field goals and 45% on treys. Nik Stauskas is signing a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics, his agents Mark Bartelstein and Andy Shiffman of @PrioritySports tell ESPN. Stauskas had an historic week, scoring 100 points on 57 and 43 point performances in back-to-back games for Grand Rapids. — Adrian Wo

Rick Barry belittling Bill Russell on TV revealed the real fool

 It happened on national TV during the 1981 NBA Finals . Two of the announcers were Rick Barry and Bill Russell . When asked who was in a photo passed to Barry, Rick responded, "I don't know. Looks like some fool over there (referring to Russ) with the watermelon grin on. Russell repeatedly indicated the photo was of KC Jones , but Barry would have none of it. Worth watching. Russ vs. Rick Barry! The "fool with the watermelon grin" wasn't Bill. It was Barry. Don't believe it was racial, but the two didn't get along. Russ was clearly pissed. Rick Barry - Watermelon Grin https://t.co/NrUSkzrwZH via @YouTube — Tom Lane (@CelticsSentinel) September 24, 2021 Bill responded with, "That was K. C. That wasn't me. That was K. C." Then Barry tried to pass the photo to Bill, and Russ wanted none of that either. "No. I don't want them" is how Russell responded, clearly pissed, but still maintaining that aura of class and composure. Alth
