An evening in Motown as the Celtics visit Detroit.

Motown Boston here again! We aren't coming in to be friends. Gonna beat you on both ends! 

 1st Quarter ☘️

No Al and no JB, let's see if the C's depth can carry them against the Pistons. We have Blake and DWhite added to the starting lineup. Who will be that surprise guy that helps the C's win?! Hauser, White, PP?! Let's see! My money is on PP! 

Excellent ball movement which is becoming a staple for this team! GWill for THREEEEEEEEE!!! Kudos to Grant who for longest time couldn't hit a three, yet now he's lights out. Tonight's game is very very choppy! A much needed timeout for the C's, let's hope they can settle down. Time to put the Pistons to bed! 

The C's are leaving the door open for the Pistons to walk thru and steal a win. C's are now trailing, and JT ties it with a threeeeeeeee!!! Its going to take a JT all around performance to lead them to victory tonight. 

Anyone else think Travis Knight when you see number 40 going up and down the floor?! Does it remind you of when the Rat Pitino was coaching here? It makes my blood boil! 

Not a big fan of what going on tonight. You play a lesser team, destroy them! C's are only down two, but I don't like it. Kudos to Dwayne Casey for getting the most out of this team. Celtics lead after one 30-29. 

2nd Quarter 🍀🍀

Tonight feels like the C's are straight walking in cement. 

JT with a block on the defensive end, followed by an And One! He is simply becoming a true MVP candidate every time we watch him. C's are scrappy tonight, feels like every inch matters. 

Excellent pass by DWhite leaving it to JT for THREEEEEEEEE!!! Tatum falling away for two! Tonight may be the Jayson Tatum show! 

Blake Griffin is setting some great screens tonight. It's those plays that end up winning games. Celtics trail yet again, time to wake up! Hopefully they can finish off this quarter with some aggression. Great job by JT keeping the ball alive! 

Celtics trail 57-55, and this writer right here isn't pleased.

3rd Quarter ☘️☘️☘️

Pistons have come out hot, and have an early lead. C's finally wake up from their nap to get back into this game. Led by Marcus blocking shots, and JT making shots! None of the C's are particularly shooting well, other than JT. 

JT is doing all he can to get this team to victory. His shooting has been en Fuego! Did you see that elegant drive, talk about pure basketball skills on display. 

Super excited to see PP get his shot tonight! Love this kid, he's always willing to do what's needed to win. Hey put me in Coach ready to play! Talk about a luxury having him on your bench. Keep this kid around, I guarantee in the playoffs he will hit a huge shot for this team! 

C's lead 89-81 at the end of the third. Let's hope for a huge fourth, and leaving with the win.

4th Quarter 🍀🍀🍀🍀

Noah Vonleh is making an impact for the C's tonight! 

Huge three by the Wolverine in transition, timeout Pistons. Hopefully the C's can come out of this break with aggression, sensing blood in the water.

Play of the NIGHT! SMART hustles for the loose ball, behind his back to Tatum who lobs it up for GWill! HAMMER TIME!!!

The game is still up in the air, with the lead only being six. JT for three and he blows a kiss in the crowds direction. Another three for JT as he tells the Pistons bench to sit the heck down! Bing Bang Boom! 

Marcus Smarts passing has been absolutely INCREDIBLE lately. We see the growth in the Jays game, but Marcus's game is growing as well. He's maturing into the facilitator this team needs! 

JT driving to the rim, unselfishly gives it to Vonleh who finds DWhite for THREEEEEEEEE!!! Goodnight Detroit! Motown Boston Back Again! 

Can we talk about Jayson Tatum, this young man seems LOCKED IN! The loss in the Finals has spurred his play this season. He looks like a man on a mission! How do you spell MVP?! I'll tell ya, J A Y S O N         T A T U M! 

Celtics win 117-108! Bleed Green! Celtic Pride!

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
