Slow start But Epic Finish



Another slow start to last night's game, and another 3rd/4th quarter deficit, yet this team FOUGHT! They fought hard and ended up coming out with a HUGE win. What makes this team different from past year's and even earlier this year is they DONT GIVE UP. The Bucks and Celtics have been evenly matched up so far this series. Each teams D has frustrated the other, Giannis is Giannis and we have witnessed JT and JB along with Al come up big. We have also seen in each of the Celtics win a true team effort. We are also a few bad calls away from being up 3-1. 

Let's talk about Al, he has truly found the fountain of youth being back with the Celtics. All year we here at the Sentinel have felt that way. After Giannis getting in his face last night, Al was changed into a different player and he showed it last night. Hitting big shot after big shot and when he drove and DUNKED on the Greek the game was won in my mind. On a different note when interviewed after the game Al gave glory to the Lord, for me personally that shows the man we know as Amazing Al! 

JT finally shook his cold shooting and made the fourth quarter his own. Hitting shot after shot and making the right passes when needed. His defense was killer and he even challenged the Greek. Kudos to the Wolverine in the quarter as well, making a few key drives and getting to the rack. 

I like the competitive fire in both teams and it was exemplified when the Wolverine and Greek we're tangled up, at first it seemed they tried helping each other up yet in the long run Marcus was over it and got up. Gimme that 80s/90s fire. In a different play we saw JB drive hard to the hole go for the dunk and get fouled, Giannis then goes to respectfully acknowledge him and JB was like nah I'm good! I love it, let's leave the respective love and admiration for after the series. 

In all reality last night was a must win and the Celtics delivered now it's best of three, two of which are in Boston! The Garden needs to be rocking and shaking to it's core. Bleed Green!

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

Rick Barry belittling Bill Russell on TV revealed the real fool

 It happened on national TV during the 1981 NBA Finals . Two of the announcers were Rick Barry and Bill Russell . When asked who was in a photo passed to Barry, Rick responded, "I don't know. Looks like some fool over there (referring to Russ) with the watermelon grin on. Russell repeatedly indicated the photo was of KC Jones , but Barry would have none of it. Worth watching. Russ vs. Rick Barry! The "fool with the watermelon grin" wasn't Bill. It was Barry. Don't believe it was racial, but the two didn't get along. Russ was clearly pissed.

Then Barry tried to pass the photo to Bill, and Russ wanted none of that either. "No. I don't want them" is how Russell responded, clearly pissed, but still maintaining that aura of class and composure. Alth
