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!

Did the Celtics Kevin McHale really have a wingspan of 8-feet?

According to many sources, the Celtics Kevin McHale did indeed have an estimated wingspan of 8-feet. One of those sources is Wikipedia, as seen below: Kevin McHale American basketball player DescriptionKevin Edward McHale is an American retired basketball player who played his entire professional career for the Boston Celtics. He is a Basketball Hall of Fame inductee, and is regarded as one of the best power forwards of all time. He was named to the NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time Team. Wikipedia Born: December 19, 1957 (age 61 years), Hibbing, MN Wingspan: 8′ 0″ Height: 6′ 10″ Spouse: Lynn McHale (m. 1982) NBA draft: 1980, Boston Celtics (Round: 1 / Pick: 3) Hall of fame induction: 1999 Number: 32 (Boston Celtics / Power forward, Center) Kevin was listed at 6'10" tall when he was drafted with the 3rd pick in the 1980 draft. Red Auerbach, in yet another heist, brought in both McHale and center Robert Parish (via trade) prior to the Celtics' 1980-81 Champion

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
