Celtics dominant in Game 4 victory over Miami Heat

 In a game that was a definite must win, the Celtics came out with the energy they should have last game. They dominated the Heat in the first and second quarters. With no Marcus Smart, DWhite came in and played his butt off in the first. He may not always be on with his shooting but he's always a gamer. What a huge trade it has added up to be bringing him in. 

The third quarter the Celtics became a little to three happy. Yet they didn't lose to much off their huge lead. Kudos to JT tonight for holding himself accountable for Sat nights game. Coming out and playing his game and leading this Celtics team in scoring. He has had some tough playoff games yet always comes back the next game and shows why he's special. 

Anyone else just admire Al Horford and how incredible he's been tonight. Blocking shots, making the right pass, playing great D and just being a classy player on this team. Tonight's offense has looked much better given that they have moved the ball. Unlike Saturday where they were sloppy and playing hero ball. 

The question is now, can this group go on the road and steal game 5 in Miami?! I believe they can and will! The keys to success will be playing hard nosed D, moving the ball and limiting the turnovers! How wonderful it will be if they can quiet that fake Miami crowd so we can hear the Celtics fans who will be down there. I don't want to get to far ahead of myself.

Kudos to this group for always being resilient and making amends for poor performances. This team has not lost two games in a row at all this playoffs. Celtics fans should be proud of this team in wins and losses. 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
