It's the Final Countdown to the regular season!

 
Pre game thoughts, let's see what Noah Vonleh can do in his last prove it game! If I'm the Celtics I'm not letting him walk out that door. He's a throwback big and a valuable asset for this team. 

Ist Quarter Thoughts ☘️

Toronto has come out ready to ball, Celtics ball movement has been good so far. The way they move that rock to one another is a sign of a team that trusts! The more they share the better shots they get, it will be difficult for other teams to stop them this year. Team D and Team O are a recipe for success. 

Downtown Jaylen Brown is once again off to a hot start. He's the match that lights the fire in the first. In a very smart basketball play he gets the rock to White for the three in the corner! That's a play we need to see more of from him. If he develops that watch out NBA, because both of the Celtics studs like to pass the rock. Yet another weapon in their arsenal! Both Jays need to dive into Larry Birds greatest hits and watch him pass with pin point accuracy and flare!

Love seeing Marcus crash the boards, we are going to need to have all hands on deck until RWill returns. DWhite is showing the work he put in this off-season with some hot shooting tonight. Goodness! Gracious! The ball movement is BEAUTIFUL! This year is going to be a lot of fun seeing this team grow on both ends. Celtics lead 36-35.

2nd Quarter ThoughtsπŸ€πŸ€

We need to see the C's exhibit that top 5 D, giving up 35 points in the first is not ideal. Another excellent offensive possession that sees the ball hopping, ends in a GWill threeeeeeeee! Sam Hauser is more than just a shooter, forcing a travel on D! 

The way Malcom the Rev Brogdon gets to the hoop is truly a joy to see. Give me a guy willing to get to the hoop and you have my approval! That's a Johnny Point! Watching JT he could be a guy who eventually puts up regular triple doubles. Tatum is starting to light it up, this dude is on a different level. 

A nice 13 to zip run by the C's led by great ball movement and solid gold D! Feel like I need some solid gold hits on the radio watching this team, they are making me feel good tonight! GWill literally just busted out and blew up his shoe on the break. It's like he Hulked up! Is it ok to say I love Malcom Brogdon already! He just adds an element to this team that stands out! He's a fantastic facilitating savant! 

Right now, second chance points are hurting the C's. RWills absence is definitely being felt. Celtics cling to a three point lead 66-63.

3rd Quarter Thoughts☘️☘️☘️ 

Let's see that killer instinct from the C's in this third quarter. Time to make the Raptors extinct again! The Celt's are a little sluggish right now, we need a spark! Who will be that man?! The Raptors are on an 8-0 run right now. This is where you need your studs to calm the waters and get us back on track. 

JT using the jets on the crossover to get to the rack, this should be the start of great things to come! Celtics with the picture perfect passing leading to an open JB for threeeeeeeee! C's on a nice run here grabbing that lead back from the Raptors. Tatum's ability to drive can become a huge piece to the elevation of his game.

I'm loving JTs new kicks, maybe he can send me a pair?! We have an Amazing Al sighting nailing a pure three from the corner! That nothing but net sound is absolutely glorious! Things are starting to unravel as the lead is down to one. Both teams are playing like it's the regular season. You have to love the competition!

 JT has just been called for a second technical foul and has been ejected. What is GOING ON?! The refs have just made this game all about them. This is why you question the NBA sometimes. End of the third and it's all tied up at 98. 

4th Quarter Thoughts πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€

Here we go as the fourth begins, and it looks like the wheels are falling off. Come on guys get in the game! Just like that we get JB with the euro step lefty off the glass. That was basketball beautiful! Label me as impressed by what Blake Griffin brings to the game. He sets very good screens, rebounds and just makes savvy basketball plays. 

Hauser's shot has been off tonight he's going to need to be more precise come the regular season. Celtics trail by five, let's get that comeback win! Celtics offensive execution is looking very good right now. It needs to be said WATCH OUT NBA! THE CELTICS ARE COMING! This team seems dialed in and it's felt that way all preseason. Expect great things this year fans! I haven't been this excited well since last year!

Overtime ☘️πŸ€☘️πŸ€☘️

Have to channel my inner Tommy but these refs SUCK tonight! Both Hauser and Pritchard have been off tonight. So many bricks they could build a house!  Offensive rebounds have killed the C's all game, they need to tighten it up during the regular season. Noah Vonleh once again is showing his worth to this Celtics team. 

Final Score Celtics 132 Raptors 136

Bleed Green! Celtic Pride! Bring on those chumps in Philly.

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

Rules of survival: When search-and-rescue turns into body recovery

 How the Hell did this happen? Two days after 19-year-old Emily Sotelo was supposedly dropped off in Franconia Notch (NH) at roughly 5:00 AM ET, Sunday, November 20, 2022 by her mother, to hike several mountains alone, the search continues for the young lady. Photo by Linda Lane The information from news agencies indicated that Emily started hiking the trails while it was still dark. She was supposedly wearing only sneakers, a coat and workout pants. I can persona;ly attest that the weather in the area was very cold with high wind speeds, and gaining elevation on the trails would only add to the horrendous conditions. Ms. Sotelo was reportedly a seasoned hiker, but had little or no experience hiking in winter. At the peaks, temperatures on that Sunday dropped to zero degrees with a wind chill of minus-30 degrees. It is beyond my comprehension to imagine a hiker-of-experience tackling that kind of travel - in extreme weather - with only basic clothes and few (or no) supplies. I have hik

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
