Man down! Man down! The Celtics visit Disney, and take on the Magic short handed

 1st Quarter ☘️

No Rob, No Brogdon and No Marcus Smart. A shorthanded team is one that comes out fighting for their livelihood. Especially against a team that beat them in back to back games earlier in Boston. It's time to make the Magic vanish off the floor! Anytime you have both Jays on the court, you should be ready for a special performance.

Great D by the C's to open up the game. It should be interesting to see both Al and Blake out there together. I honestly like seeing them on the floor together. C's haven't found the basket yet tonight. That quickly changes as JB nails the three!!! He's a guy who tends to start off well in first quarters. 

C's need to tighten up the D tonight. The offense looks terrible right now. It seems to me these Celtics have no energy right now. You can't allow dumpster fire teams to get any confidence. Yet the Celtics like to let them hang around. 

DWhite for THREEEEEEEEE!!! going to need a big game from him as the primary ball handler. He needs to make this offense hit on all cylinders! Celtics trail by five as we have timeout. Nice to see Jonathan Isaac out there. He's been dealing with plenty of injuries. 

BG for Threeeeeeeee!!! DWhite with yet another block! Love how hard he plays on defense. Defense ultimately wins championships! JT gets to the rack and goes off glass with the left! C's need to finish off this quarter on a nice run. 

Someone needs to put Banchero in his place! Give me a defender who is willing to accept the challenge. JB with back too back pure three pointers! When JB is on he's tough to stop! Like a runaway freight train! Choo! Choo! 

We have a tie ball game as we head down the stretch of the first. Nice pass by JB to the Unicorn! Sam I am attacks the rim and scores, maybe that's the start of something good for him. He needs to find his shot, it's been MIA. Some how the C's find themselves losing after the first. Unacceptable! 

2nd Quarter 🍀🍀

Luke grabs the offensive board and scores, we are going to need that tonight. It's starting to become increasingly annoying watching this Magic team. Great shot by Haus Money! It's the start of something good by the Gordon Hayward look a like. 

This Celtics D needs to really tighten things up. We have a let's go Celtics chant here in Orlando! Talk about having a road home court advantage! The Celtics are not into this game right now, and that's extremely frustrating to watch. 

Sam Hauser with an incredible and timely block! This is just a disgusting display right now. It seems as though they are going through the motions. Not what you would expect by the best team in the NBA. Have the C's decided to look past the Magic with a showdown vs Miami tomorrow?!

Off of the timeout they seem to be attacking the rim. It all starts on the defensive end. Plenty of time left for the C's to make a nice run. 

Love the connection with Grande and House tonight. PP for threeeeeeeee! JB hits his patented jumper and lead is cut to six. JB went to destroy the rim just now! He gets to line as the C's trim the lead! You need to hit your FREE THROWS! 

The Celtics D is forcing the Magic into turnovers. JT dances and scores, gets the ball back and attacks the rim and scores again! JT on the break and scores! The C's by one! The crowd goes wild! I'm going wilD! 

We went from unacceptable play, to playing Celtics basketball! The Magic has vanished, hopefully the C's can continue to build on this run. The C's are not allowing the Magic to run as they did earlier. Excellent effort getting back on defense in this quarter. 

JB steps back and hits the mid range! It's soooooooooooo pretty! Excellent ball movement leads to a JT for THREEEEEEEEE!!! JB just manned up for the offensive rebound and put back! JT attacks and scores with the left! C's trail by one. 

3rd Quarter ☘️☘️☘️

It would be nice to have the C's come out with the fire they had in that second quarter. Keep the pedal to the metal, go grab the lead and never look back! Let's make the Magic disappear into the ether of the night. It all starts on the defensive end, which as we all know wins championships! These first five minutes are going to be huge for the C's. 

Anyone else notice that when JT drives with aggression no one can stop him. We need more of that in this third quarter. DWhite starts us off with nothing but net three! Blake Griffin with some EXCELLENT D! Damnnnnnn a DEEP THREE BY JB! 

DWhite drives and scores! Attack! Attack! Attack! DWhite is the C's personal iron man, he hasn't missed a game all year! Wagner literally traveled and no call! Al gets the rock and finally nails a threeeeeeee!!!  

JT gets to the hoop, gets hacked and no call. He gets absolutely no respect sometimes. It's nip and tuck right now, can the C's go on a run?! Al saves the possession and JT nails a threeeeeeee!!! It's nice seeing all the green in the seats tonight. 

JT is now in the locker room... 

Orlando is in the bonus, the game is being called very one sided. How is it the refs are siding with the Magic?! I just don't get it! JB with a huge three, time to D up. Ever since JT went out we have fallen apart.

Luke Kornet with a huge block but once again another PHANTOM CALL GIVE ME A FREAKING BREAK! 

JB with a huge steal and scores!! The Magic once again playing out of their minds have a big lead. JT leaves with an injury and we fall to pieces. 

Thankfully JT comes back in the game, it's going to take a big fourth quarter for the C's. Celtics trail after three.

4th Quarter 🍀🍀🍀🍀

C's tighten up on D and make a nice stop. Hauser saves a possession and JT hits the THREEEEEEEEE!!! These refs have been TERRIBLE! ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE! 

C's are getting hoodwinked by the refs tonight. Haus Money with a huge three! The time is now for a big C's run! Another freaking offensive foul. These refs are awful. PP goes the distance and SCORES! 

DWhite with a chance to grab the and one and he does! The Celtics keep fighting an uphill battle as the refs are playing a huge role tonight in aiding the Magic to the lead. At least call the game fairly, this has been gross. JT for THREEEEEEEEE!!! 

If Tommy Heinsohn were here, he would be disgusted by these refs. The NBA should be ashamed of themselves having this crew out here. They are screwing the Celtics royally! 

The questionable calls tonight have really made me scratch my head. It just doesn't seem to be in the cards for the C's. Kudos to the refs for finding a way to screw your Boston Celtics. These foul numbers have been out of control in favor of the Magic. 

Bleed Green Celtic Pride

We will win tomorrow night!

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.
