Celtics last night: Resilience, toughness and heart


 What if I told you that Golden State would see Steph score 31 and Klay score 25, not to mention they had their patented third quarter run? You may say they would have control of the series. Well you would be wrong, they took those punches and ended up winning and showing how much tougher they are. Anyone see Draymond Green because Celtics fans were chanting for him but he didn't seem to show up! In the post game mightier than thou Klay Thompson was complaining about the fans, what does that show me the Celtics and their fans have gotten to yet another soft player. Just ask a certain person who wears the same number in Brooklyn.

How about them Celtics! From the jump last night you could tell they were not messing around. Did anyone else notice how the Celtics talent and toughness over powered these Warriors?! The Celtics have taken when they went through vs the Bucks and Heat, and are now applying it against a softer, weaker Warriors team. Let's look at the Jays last night, both did what you would want your studs to do. They both scored, rebounded, made good passes and played hard nosed D! The Wolverine was right there with them showing why he's the heart and soul of this team! 

RWill and GWill kept plenty of possessions alive for the Celtics last night. Along with some pretty stellar D. It seemed like a true TEAM win because each player out there had an impact on winning this game! This is why I love this team, they play hard D and when it's needed very good offense. They did have to many turnovers in the first half for my liking but cleaned it up in the second half! 

Ime Udoka has shown he can hang with and put coach some the NBAs top dogs. I fully expect him to have this group foaming at the mouth to go up 3-1 on Friday night. Celtics fans embrace this team and this run! This team has given me a very special first season on writing. Bleed Green! Celtic Pride!

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
