Walking In Memphis, C's go on the road to face the Grizz.

 1st Quarter ☘️

The Wolverine is coming out firing! He's driving to the hoop and knocking down threes! His strong suit will always be defense, but he is a professional basketball player! A couple of excellent passes to JT for thunderous dunks. Marcus when he's on is very special. Maybe tonight is a signature performance. 

Celtics are making some high IQ defensive plays, but still are not where they should be. Way too many easy looks for the Grizz tonight. They need to make sure to keep Ja in check, because he can go off at any moment. 

Cs need a big, there are way too many times they lose boards. They just earned an exception for Gallinari, put it to good use. There are a few guys who don't have homes right now. Let's bring one in!

Nice to see Sam I Am getting open and hitting his shot! He's currently secon in the NBA in 3 point shooting. Not a big fan of the two for one, it seems to be a rushed first possession, from my perspective. Celtics trail after one 34-28. 

2nd Quarter 🍀🍀

Malcolm Mr Smooth Brogdon nails a nothing but net three. He likes it so much, he did it again! This dude is just so in flow with the basketball, it's effortless! Doing what he does best, he finds JT for threeeeeeeee! The way he gets the D to commit and then kick it out is spectacular. There are going to be so many games this season that he has a huge impact on. 

Driving JT is one of my favorite JTs, he's so long and strong- he glides to the hoop! His three point shot is pretty, but his drives are so fluid! Yet another drive and he scores off the glass! He's finally learning how dominate he can be going to the rack. 

Tatum has been cutting to the hoop lately, which I love. It's very underrated in today's game and he does it so well. Celtics lead 65-54. Expect a big second half from JT!

3rd Quarter ☘️☘️☘️

Need to see a concerted effort on the defensive end, let's put these Grizzlies down! C's have yet to score, until JB cuts and JAMS! Cutting to the hoop really works! 

Great spacing by the C's, leads to an open three from Al. The D hasn't looked very good, it's all about effort. Marcus draws an offensive foul, love it! That's what I'm talking about! 

The C's pushing the ball in transition, leads to a three and ten point lead! As Tommy always said RUN! When they push the pace, good things occur! The C's have everything they need to be successful, it's all about execution! 

Marcus Smart with the alley OOP to Al!!! Love seeing him being a facilitator. Time to close this quarter off with a nice run. Refs getting a little too involved with the game. Good timeout by Coach Mazzulla. The C's implode trailing by one, 85-84. 

4th Quarter 🍀🍀🍀🍀

Time to right the ship, JB attacks the rim and we are back in the lead. Great D by JB knocking the ball loose. Should be a clear path, because JB was heading for a dunk! It's clear as day to me, and the refs actually make a good call. 

JT for THREEEEEEEEE! Now let's play some D! JB with a huge drive for a nice deuce! Time out Grizz, C's are on a nice run. It's closeout time, get JT the ball. This is where your studs do their damage! 

Great D on Ja! On the other end the Wolverine takes a hit and nails a lefty rainbow and the foul! What a play! Gotta love the JT dribble drive and score! 

The D on Ja in this quarter has been excellent! JB to JT equals HAMMER TIME! Great job defensively this quarter for the C's. 

The waters are a bit wavy right now, C's are stumbling to finish this off. Luckily the Grizz are also faltering. Yet some how this is at a one possession game. C's do their best to give it away but pull it off in the end. Final score 109-106.

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
