Walking in Memphis, the Celtics take on the G League Grizzlies


1st Quarter

Imagine buying a ticket for tonight's game only to see the home team sit everyone. I remember when guys played every game, Jordan always suited up because he knew someone spent their hard earned money to see him. Celtics are full tilt tonight, both the Bucks and Sixers chose to sit players. Bring on the Nets, time to put two of the most miserable players of all time out to pasture. 

Who is this Grizzly starting five?? Celtics with a win can secure the second seed. The fact that this group chose to get it tonight says alot. We fear no team, we can beat any and everyone! Defense travels and we have two studs. A supporting cast that balls out and we exemplify what it means to be a team! Celtics are off to a nice start, continue to grind and let's get a dominate win. 

2nd Quarter

Celtics are shooting 61 percent! Kudos to Memphis for playing hard. What do we want to see, let's see some of the guys we need in spot roles. Give us Nesmith, Hauser, and maybe some Kornet. We have a healthy Al going into the playoffs, good thing is no back to backs. Meaning he can just ball out every chance he gets. Al brings a taste of everything out there. He can rebound, pass, defend and shoot with any big out there. He's like getting the taste of Italy at olive garden. The best of everything!

PP, my thoughts on him are he's going to make huge shots this post season run. He's been building and building. His confidence is second to none and his skills fit JT when he's passing out of double teams. It can't be said enough but this team has guts, willing to accept possibly facing the NEts in the first round shows they are ready for that next step. To be the best you have to go thru some of the so called best players in the NBA. JT, JB and this team are ready to go after Banner 18!

3rd Quarter

Celtics have played well in the first half, need to continue to play hard and bring this one home! Celtics have come out executing and doing there thang! This group has come out to win tonight as they should. This is how you want to go out as the playoffs are upon us. Celtics are getting every shot they want to. JT has 31 so far and he's going to need to be nails for us to succeed.

It will be interesting to see how the play in games shape who the Celtics play. Do the Cavs have enough to go into Brooklyn and win? Well given how the game is going the Celtics are going to be second in the East. Philly will be three if they finish off Detroit and the Bucks will be 4. The EC is definitely top heavy, can Toronto challenge the Bucks? Will Chicago even win a game vs Philly? 

4th Quarter 

Any of our readers have the Celtics winning 51 games?! Imagine if they didn't struggle early on. We could be looking at 60 wins! No matter which way we look at things this has been a very good regular season. As all Celtic fans know, the post season determines your place in history. Banners are what we strive for, sure we remember the near misses. But the wins are cherished forever and ever! 

As we sign off from the regular season, we are given a week to rest up and prepare for having to hear Kyrie and KD throw shade at us fans and our Beloved Celtics. No one can take away from their talent, but the way in which they carry themselves leaves alot to be desired. Yet a few moons ago KD almost signed here and Kyrie wanted his number in the rafters. With that said if it does turn out us vs them, believe in this group. We are deeper, hungrier, and play a brand of D that the Nets can't handle. Bleed Green! 




May we all go into this post season with the joy in which Gino dances!

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
