Short Handed Vs the Defending Champs in Milwaukee

 1st Quarter

 Celtics have come out to play despite being shorthanded. The game has been up and down so far. Are we looking at a possible Eastern Conference final preview. We have a DWhite sighting with a nice three in the flow of the offense. He's going to need to continue to grow in this offense. If he does it's going to bolster the bench. He's shown he can be a part of the Celtics closing lineup. 

This Bucks team is primed for another championship run. They are a very balanced team, defensively they can lock you down. On offense you have your hands full with the Greek and Middleton who always light up the C's. These Celtics are competing tonight, but trail by seven. Let's focus in on JB leading this team by distributing out of double teams like JT does. Tonight's game is good to see what else we have on the bench. 

2nd Quarter

Celtics were destroyed inside the paint in the first. Need to sure up that defense down low. It's a difficult challenge given no Al or RWill tonight. But it's going to be something Ime will have to adapt to tonight. Let's see what game plan he comes up with to combat it. Despite that, they are giving their all out there. 

Sam Hauser shooting and nailing rainbow threes. Gotta like the confidence he's playing with tonight. The moment is not to big for him, he's 3 for 3 so far from deep. Hes rocking the clean shave tonight. We even have a Green Kornet sighting. Celtics only trail by 3 despite being down JT and Al. This can't be said enough but this Bucks team is a well oiled machine. If the Celtics lose and Philly wins we are looking at the 4th seed. Which isn't a bad thing. 

3rd Quarter 

Celtics coming out fighting in the third, gotta love the fire of this team. JB nails a three and the lead is down to four. For once the three point shot is saving the Celtics. I love the way JB is passing tonight, it's what I wanted to see and he's flourishing. Now as the game tightens up who else will assist JB? Marcus, DWhite, or maybe a guy like PP. 

Both teams are trading jabs, running and gunning to an exciting finish. I tell ya Middleton sees the Celtics and he's automatic from anywhere. Way to many offensive rebounds going the Bucks direction. You aren't going to win not grabbing boards. JB with his fourth foul which could signal which way this game could go. As much as we wanted JT to play tonight health is the key for the playoffs. 

4th Quarter 

In a game that doesn't seem to have to much D on either end, its close as we enter the fourth. Will the Celtics steal this one on the road? If they do it's going to be a heck of a win, given no Tatum or Al. They are going to need to clean up their D, buckle down to steal this one on the road. PP hitting a big shot to cut the lead. Just like that he strikes again and it's tied!

Jrue Holiday is a tough player to stop. With that said Celtics have grabbed a five point lead. It can't be said enough but this team is playing with heart tonight, not much D though. Lets see how it all plays out, will they finish off this game with a win? 

Imagine if the Celtics had won those game they gave up early in the year?! We could have won 60 games this season and running away with the number one seed. 

What a game tonight it's back and forth and exciting to watch. Love seeing the Wolverine challenging the Greek on the defensive end! We missed Tatum and Al tonight. We can beat the Bucks no doubt. Bleed Green!

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

Did the Celtics Kevin McHale really have a wingspan of 8-feet?

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.
