North of the Border on a Saturday Night. The Celtics visit the Raptors.

 1st Quarter ☘️

What is this Raptors floor tonight?! The uniforms as well?! RWill with a nice jump hook to start things off! Marcus Smart with the great defense takes the hit and steals the ball but he's out of bounds. 

C's off too a very slow start. JB is off tonight. Is it me or is tonight a throw away game?! Great D by JB! He was not treating Achuwa preciously! JB floats to the rack and scores. JB for THREEEEEEEEE!!! Tonight is gonna be a downtown Jaylen Brown kinda game! JB steps through and has the opportunity for the and one! Love this dude! Pay him his money! 

DWhite with the floater! Let's Go! Cs are not looking very good right now. They trail by nine, not ideal especially being short handed. These Raptors are not impressive. MB scores on the one handed jump shot! MB for Threeeeeeeee!!! C's have fought back after falling behind. JB for THREEEEEEEEE!!! Let's Gooooooooo! Celtics trail by one. 

2nd Quarter 🍀🍀

Celtics with absolutely spectacular ball movement! Lead to a GWill Three! GWill for THREEEEEEEEE!!! He's waiting for that new contract! The Celtics bench is dominant right now! I'm so glad to see PP getting some run tonight! GWill has been asserting himself tonight and gets to the rack! 

GWILL with a step back three! He's on fire right now! I say that and he misses the three ha! Love seeing DWhite with the angel soft floater! The C's have been on quite an amazing run overall, and that's due too..... NO TURNOVERS! 

The good thing about this year's Celtics team is they step up when guys are out. Yes the game is tied, but these Celtics know how to play and win. Marcus drives and gets in the paint and scores. GWill gets inside running the floor and the C's have the lead! 

This Raptors team is an absolute under achiever this season....

GWill has been showing his entire bag of tricks this season. Al hasn't scored yet tonight, we need to get him going. C's are letting the Raptors build a small lead as we enter halftime. Not ideal given we have to Jayson Tatum. Yes it's only four points but I don't like it! 

Siakim pushes off on every dribble....... Hello NBA refs wake the heck up! Celtics trail at the half. Oh no...... Marcus Smart is hurt. Damn it! 

3rd Quarter ☘️☘️☘️

No Rob either in this third quarter, my guess they being very precautionary. C's aren't getting calls. JB goes to the hoop and no call?! Come on now! He gets mugged by multiple Raptors claws and no call! 

Kudos to the C's for fighting out there, minutes 3 huge pieces now. Losing Marcus and Rob now for the second half. The lead is only seven but the C's have a shot! 

Excellent D by MB! Love him oh so very much! The dude makes winning plays! Celtics only trail by three. Raptors continue to play above themselves as they extend the lead. 

DWhite smooth as butter, gets to the rim for two! Followed up by JB who gets inside and scores! Things are starting to fall apart. 

JB gets to the rack with authority! MB for threeeeeeeee!!! The C's are on the move! MB for yet another threeeeeeeee!!! Dude is balling! C's at the line with a chance to cut this lead. Celtics trail after three....

4th Quarter 🍀🍀🍀🍀

Can the C's mount a comeback?! We shall find out as we enter the fourth. 

JB for THREEEEEEEEE!!! There we go, as we mount a comeback! PP for threeeeeeeee!!! The C's have the lead! GWill nails a three and the C's are up by five! Timeout Raptors! Time to make these dinosaurs extinct! 

Siakim just double dribbled and no call..... Hello NBA refs wake up! JB pulls up and nails a nothing but netter! Siakim carries the ball and we get whistled for a foul. 

Nice to see Blake Griffin getting some run tonight! PP for threeeeeeeee!!!! When he gets run he shows up! JB for THREEEEEEEEE, off of GWill with the offensive rebound! PP for yet another threeeeeeeee!!! 

Refs are trying to keep the Raptors in the game. Great hands by MB! Forces a turnover! MB gets to his left and scores! Dude is CLUTCH! 

Al has been offfff....... 

PP for THREEEEEEEEE!!! Gives the C's the lead! PP with a HUGE offensive rebound! 

The C's have the lead with about fourteen seconds left. Will the defense lock the Raptors down?! Let's hope so! Al with some EXCELLENT D! Forces Siakim into a jump ball! Nick Nurse is such a huge baby! Cry! Cry! Cry! 

Al wins the tip and the Raptors grab it, he then forces another jump ball. Love Al! He's hustle has won this game! What's garbage call just now on the C's. Al SEALS THE GAME ON D AND WE WIN!

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?

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.
