The Brooms Are Out!

 The Boston Celtics just took the Nets best effort and still defeated them. If you told me that KD would score 30 plus I would have told you I'd be worried. Despite that this group came out on top and brought the Brooms out and have sent the Nets home permanently. 

  The Nets are yet another example that just because you have a few stars it doesn't mean you have a complete team. The Lakers and Nets both were star heavy, one team didn't make the playoffs and the other you just swept off the court. These Celtics have been built the right way, thru the draft,trades and free agency. Guys who come to Boston want to win, and be part of the tradition of Bleeding Green. 

  Once again JT played as though he owns the NBA, yet he fouls out on a Dragic flop that even soccer players would say was over embellished. The way JT can take over a game offensively, whether thru scoring or passing is elite. He has become a monster on D as well. JB was huge in tonight's game when he drives to the hoop No one can stop him. His defense has become elite as well. 

   Let's talk Marcus the Wolverine Smart he just makes huge plays every game! His game has matured into a fine wine. Making big plays on D and the offensive end. Love that guy! GWill was balling once again hitting threes like a sniper. His defense on KD and Kyrie was ELITE, he's been money on D. I can't say enough about this TEAM, PP and DWhite did the little things needed to win. 

  Al Horford seems to defy time, making huge plays to help this group put the nails in the coffin to bury the Nets. The way this Celtics team made the Nets stars work on both ends and wire them down thru the series. When I think about this team I think Resilient! Taking the Nets best punches and getting up and punching right back! Looks like things are rounding up for a second round matchups with the Bucks. 

  This sweep and win are a huge step on the ladder of what can be a dream season. If this team stays healthy, plays D elite and moves that ball on offense the sky is the limit. As Celtics fans we should be proud of what they are a TEAM! Bleed Green! Celtic Pride!

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
