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!

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

According to many sources, the Celtics Kevin McHale did indeed have an estimated wingspan of 8-feet. One of those sources is Wikipedia, as seen below: Kevin McHale American basketball player DescriptionKevin Edward McHale is an American retired basketball player who played his entire professional career for the Boston Celtics. 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. Wikipedia Born: December 19, 1957 (age 61 years), Hibbing, MN Wingspan: 8′ 0″ Height: 6′ 10″ Spouse: Lynn McHale (m. 1982) NBA draft: 1980, Boston Celtics (Round: 1 / Pick: 3) Hall of fame induction: 1999 Number: 32 (Boston Celtics / Power forward, Center) Kevin was listed at 6'10" tall when he was drafted with the 3rd pick in the 1980 draft. Red Auerbach, in yet another heist, brought in both McHale and center Robert Parish (via trade) prior to the Celtics' 1980-81 Champion

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
