Back in Boston: Celtics vs Pacers.

First Quarter Moments

JT opens things up by passing on a three and getting to the rim. That's what I love to see! Any player passing up an open three to get to the rim is my kinda player. These past few games we are truly seeing how great JT is getting to the rack!

JB decides to shoot and nail a three! Now as much as I don't like the three, it was very pretty! Pacers and C's are trading body shots like two boxers. Personally want to see the C's with a knockout blow! 

As Mike Gorman just said, Haliburton with the funny looking shot! I'm with ya Mike! It's odd to say the least, yet he makes a good portion of those shots. Hopefully not tonight though, let's throw multiple defenders at him and not let him get any open looks. On the offensive end we should definitely attack him!

Celtics D looks locked in right now, their rotations have been pretty crisp. Defense wins championships, I hope they always remember that. Last season their defense was elite. That's where we need to get before the start of the playoffs. 

DWhite is a guy who I'm glad is on our team. He's a total all around awesome player. It's an absolute joy watching him on a nightly basis. He's so well rounded on both ends of the floor. When you need a key stop, or block he's the guy. You need a big shot or key drive he's the guy! 

C's hold a slim lead, and this writer wants to see it grow before the end of the quarter. Excellent push by the C's on that last play! Gotta love the way Derrick sees the floor and pushes it. C's need to continue to push the ball and run! Tommy always said RUN BABY!

Second Quarter Moments

It's time for the C's to separate themselves from the Pacers. JT continues to attack the rim and it's paying off. C's look pretty good overall tonight. This is what needs to be brought each and every night as the season comes to an end. Come playoffs it better be balls to the wall every single freaking night!

C's really need to put their stamp on tonight. Don't allow the Pacers to hang around. Which they aren't getting any separation at all. Hoping for a nice run in this quarter. It's all gonna start on D! We get a Rob Lob! 

C's are trending in that direction of allowing the Pacers to stay in this game. If they stepped on their throats they would blow them out. Not pleased with the fact they play with their food instead of eating it.

Rob Williams presence is being felt on the boards tonight. We missed him on the floor. He does all those little things needed win. We could have used him in that loss at Utah. C's can't falter as the end of the quarter approaches. We have a lead but it's not enough right now. 

Third Quarter Moments

Well it's time to exert your will on this game. JB gets to the cup and draws the foul on Turner. Keep attacking the hoop and you will end up winning. It's honestly awesome seeing both Jays attack the rim! 

JB for THREEEEEEEEE!!! C's are playing D and scoring baskets! Like I said basketball is simple at its core! 

C's have come out with much more purpose in trying to show the Pacers who they are. Need to keep up the intense defense. This Pacers team does not give up. Would be nice for the C's to build on this lead even more. 

A great job by the C's building on their lead off of the half. That's what good teams do! 

Fourth Quarter Moments

C's are a little choppy right now. Until DWhite says hold my beer! Nails a three and we are back on track! C's have played with a very nice rhythm tonight. Kudos to the C's for a solid victory tonight. They showed glimpses on both ends of the floor. Need a win on Sunday to keep this streak going. 

 Knights Knotes - before I go C's, anyone watching any of the NCAA tournament games?! On both sides men's and women's it's been so exciting to watch. It's a very pure game watching these kids scrap for every play! 

C's came out with some heart and fire, the key is doing it for forty eight minutes. I love the defense for the most part. The ball movement has been damn good as well. Yet the game is way to tight for my liking. 

JT continues to attack the rim and let the three point shot wait. For all the missed threes, they could be layups, jumpers and free throws. The easier the better! Basketball is simple at its core. 

C's continue to falter at the end of quarters. That needs to be fixed. Especially with the playoffs approaching. 

The Cs came and balled out tonight! Not their best game by any means, but they brought it in the second half. We better see a team on a mission, as the playoffs approach. It's all about the playoffs! It's all about Banner 18! 

Bleed Green! Celtic Pride!

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.
