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!

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?

Nik Stauskas adds "shooting with size" voiced by Brad Stevens

 As a 6'6" shooting guard, 28-year-old Nik Stauskas adds that shooting with size sorely needed by the Boston Celtics. Drafted 8th-overall by the Sacramento Kings in 2014, Stauskas has bounced around to various teams since then. Nik Stauskas' deal with the Boston Celtics includes non-guaranteed salary for the second season in 2022-23, a source tells @celticsblog . — Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) March 4, 2022 Nik has never averaged more than 9.5 points per game in the NBA, but Boston is most likely counting on his production for Grand Rapids in the G League as the incentive to sign him. In 17 games thus far, he has averaged 24.7 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 4.8 APG - while shooting 50% on field goals and 45% on treys. Nik Stauskas is signing a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics, his agents Mark Bartelstein and Andy Shiffman of @PrioritySports tell ESPN. Stauskas had an historic week, scoring 100 points on 57 and 43 point performances in back-to-back games for Grand Rapids. — Adrian Wo
