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!

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
