Game 1 A Total Team Win, Never Give Up!

 


What if I told you that, Steph Curry went off in the first quarter, the Warriors as a team had a dominant third quarter, and JT had an off shooting night. You would probably say we lost, well as you all know by now the Celtics won game 1 of the Finals. 

After Steph Curry went off in the first quarter, these hard, gritty, Celtics were only down by 4. The "Moment" didn't seem to big for them. They responded in the second quarter by ending up with a lead at the half. As a fan I felt good, but we all know this Warriors group has killer third quarters. 

In the third quarter the Celtics were out rebounded, and didn't execute very well. The Warriors were up by as much as 15! That didn't stop us from trusting in their game plan and Coaching from Ime Udoka. What is it about third quarters?! 

As they entered the fourth quarter, they came out with their heads on fire. JB led the charge, this young stud has shown numerous times over these playoffs he can carry this team. Along with Amazing Al who has found the fountain of youth, and DWhite who through the entire game played his butt off spurred and led the comeback. We also saw key shots by the Wolverine and PP go down. Despite not having his shot JT impacted the game passing and playing D. 

Don't get to high or low my dad always tells me whether its a win or lose. With that said these two teams are evenly matched. What stood out to me was defensively there were times the Celtics over powered the Warriors. It wasn't a perfect game for the C's but that's sports. Personally I'm glad all of ESPN picked the Warriors. It can make this storybook season even sweeter. 

The Celtics have done their job and stolen home court, but I'm greedy and want to see them steal Sundays game as well! Anything is possible! This team may not have the experience in the finals but that's a good thing. Sometimes being young and just playing your game without the noise is good. Just ask the 91 Bulls! Settle in Celtics fans it's feeling like a long series! One down and three to go! Celtic Pride! Need 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?

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
