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!

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
