Taking the Midnight Train to Atlanta, as the C's look for 8 in a row.


No Marcus, no Brogdon, next man up! DWhite, PP, and Sam I  Am we need ya tonight! 

 1st Quarter☘️

Al opens the scoring up, with the tip in off a miss. Rebounding is going to be huge for the C's if they want to win. JB is looking to show off as he is back home in Atlanta. Using his excellent skills by getting to the rim! I love watching JB get to the rim, it's a thing of beauty. 

Dejounte Murray is going to be a problem tonight. DWhite seems to embrace being a starter tonight. I absolutely love watching him play on both ends! His defense is always stout, and offensively he's solid. Having him compliments our core guys!

Shout out to Blake Griffin fighting for offensive boards! That's the kind of hustle you want from the entire team. Despite the C's not shooting great, but have the lead! Sam I am Hauser is in and lighting it up! PP gets in on the action with a three as well! Celtics lead the Hawks 30-18. 

2nd Quarter๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ€

Sam I am Hauser for three! Then we get a JT for THREEEEEEEEE! Still need to see better rebounding tonight. It would also be nice to see the D step it up. 

JB just sliced up the Hawks D, finding the rim once again with ease. On the flip side the Hawks are soaring as they cut into the lead. 

It's time to C's the moment, let's settle things down and play our game! GWill adds to his excellent 3 point percentage, by nailing a few nothing but net bombs! 

The Hawks are a scrappy bunch and keep fighting back. Up to the Celtics to impose their will as the end of the quarter approaches. Celtics lead 62-53 after a huge three by PP!

3rd Quarter☘️☘️☘️

Where my Jays at?! Expect a big second half from our two top dawgs! Need a big third to put this game away early. 

JB with four fouls already, that's a big loss. Sam comes in for JB and nails a three! Refs are slanting towards the Hawks. Not liking it at all! There's been a few choice calls that have me scratching my head. 

GWill in transition nails a three, for some reason that's today's game. If these shots go in I'll take it. I would prefer taking it to rim in those moments. I'm old school I guess, get to the rim! 

Good for GWill bodying Hunter and getting to the line. Man up DeAndre! What's BLOCK by Al! Get that weak crap out of here! Despite his shot not falling, Al continues to do all the little things! 

C's lead by 13, let's get it to 20 by the end of the third. JT with the spin and score! Get that man in the post more often! C's have built the lead to 20!!! Just what we wanted as C's fans! 

C's getting a little too three happy. Get to the rim! C's lead 97-78. 

4th Quarter๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ€

Atlanta is usually a dungeon of doom for the C's but tonight we are slaying that dragon. The Jays are in with our assassin's from deep in PP and Sam I Am! C's have the ability to put this game to bed early in the fourth. 

Let's give Coach Joe some credit for unlocking the full potential of this offense. The way this team moves the ball and scores is just plain nasty! JB is grabbing his moment, despite the foul trouble. Showing up for the hometown crowd. 

Time to empty the bench, and there we go! These are my favorite type of games when we send the crowd home early on the road! 

Tonight was a good win, missing Malcolm and Marcus. JB was in foul trouble and JT was off in the first half. Loving this team even when they irritate me! Celtics win 126-101! 

Bleed Green! Celtic Pride! It's Geno Time Even on the Road!

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

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.
