Must Win Game 2

   In a game without the Wolverine, tonight is a must win for your beloved Celtics. After a sluggish and poorly executed offensive game on Sunday, tonight their popping. JB has come out on a mission and is feasting on the Bucks D. Celtics need to continue to establish their D and need to run on the Bucks and not let them set their D.

   Despite the Hot start, the Bucks have cut the lead down. Just like that JB nails a buzzer beater three in the face of Allen. He's got 17 points, and looks like a new man out there tonight. Love the last offensive set by JB attacking the pressure and finding JT for the easy basket. Tonight's first quarter looks more like Celtic basketball. Need to keep this going, no resting tonight especially with game 3 not till Saturday. 

   Al Horford and this entire Celtics D is forcing the Greek into bad shots so far tonight. PP nailing threes is a sweet sign tonight that he's primed to have a good game. DWhite is still struggling offensively, we are gonna need him to hit a few shots tonight. Love how hard this Celtics D is playing tonight. GWill has been HUGE tonight, not only hitting threes but his D is on point. Every once in a while he gets to the hoop with ease and scores. 

  Al Horford has looked spectacular tonight on both ends of the floor. Celtics ball movement has been a thing of beauty tonight. We are watching CELTICS BASKETBALL!  DEFENSE is stout, and making the Bucks earn every basket. We should all applaud Ime tonight, he adjusted his game plan and it's working well so far. JT just nailed a three in the Greeks face! Opa! It's raining three's tonight in the Garden! Celtics up by 25 at the half! 

  Celtics need to be careful, the Greek looks angry and ready to go. A nice JT for three moment and the Celtics lead by 24. Need to see this team continue to execute their game plan and keep this lead where it is, if not make it larger. Way to many whistles this half and there is no flow to the third quarter. If Marcus is back Saturday afternoon, expect the Bucks fans to be all over him. 

  C's have gone ice cold, need to find a way to ignite that fire we saw in the first half. Celtics lead is down to 16, can't allow the Champs to get any closer. Much needed three by GWill to stop the bleeding. Nice to see JT rise up and score over Matthews. Not the best quarter up to this point, but that JT to RWill for the hammer jam has brought the building down! 

 Money time and the fourth is upon us, JB for three! First points of the second half, going to need him. Anyone else love seeing JT crash the boards, his rebounding has gotten so much better. Sluggish fourth so far for the C's offense. They are going to need to get it going if they want to close this game out. To much dribbling right now, get the ball moving! 

  We need to see better offensive execution, if this game is going into the win column. Start running your sets, move that ball and get better shots. JT with the sweet drive and kick to GWill for three! Celtics have a 16 point lead but it still doesn't feel truly safe. GWill skies for a huge rebound but Celtics come away empty. This second half our offense has fallin asleep. JT driving by the Greek with a scoop lefty layup, we need more of that. This needs to be said way to many going to the monitor moments tonight. Takes away from the flow of the game! 

  The lead continues to shrink, it's down to 12. Huge three from JT! He drove, passed the ball and kept moving to the corner for the big score. Huge rebound by JB getting to the rack and scoring. This half the Celtics offense has fallen short given how well they played in the first half. Tatum just hit the killer three, once again driving, dishing and moving to get that open three. We need to see this team attack all 48 minutes in game three! Good Win, but their best basketball is still in front of them. Bleed Green!

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
