Little not to like in Celtics blowout of Hornets

 Where do I start? Let's go with Mfiondu Kabengele. His game isn't pretty, but this Florida State alum works his butt off out there and does a bit of everything. He finished with 10 points and three rebounds, hitting all four of his shots, including one 3-pointer. He may not have the athleticism of his fellow Florida State alum, Dave Cowens, but he plays as hard. Diving on the floor in the third quarter. trying to corral a loose ball got some applause from the crowd.

The Celtics bench racked up 72 of Boston's 134 points, led by Sam Hauser's 14 points. He was 5-of-6 from the field and 4-of-5 on treys. His whole game, particularly his shooting, is a thing of beauty. Oh, and Hauser also finished with a team-high plus/minus of +26. This kid is a sniper.

How about Malcolm Brogdon? He had a team-high nine assists, adding 11 points and five boards, just the type of balanced line we can expect from him this season.

Noah Vonleh logged 13 minutes, grabbing a team-high nine rebounds. Like Kabengele, he didn't miss a shot, scoring seven points on 3-of-3 from the field and 1-of-1from beyond the arc.

Only one game - and this is merely exhibition, but other than the 23 turnovers by Boston, what fans saw yesterday bodes well for the season. No Rob Williams. No Danilo Gallinari. But the Celtics look like one of the most-talented and deepest teams in the NBA

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
