C's and St. Patty's Day... No better combo

First Quarter Moments

C's move the ball well to start tonight's game as DWhite hits Al inside! Pound the paint fellas! C's D is a bit lackluster to start. Luckily the Blazers are missing their shots. Tatum still can't hit a three, what is going on?!

C's defense allows the Blazers to grab an early lead. It sounds as though there are a lot of C's fans in Portland. You have to love it! It would be nice to see a complete game from the C's. Al Horford has been en FUEGO so far tonight. Al with the box out, and leads the break, where JB gets to the cup. 

Dame Lillard is a guy who I absolutely love. He may not be a Celtic, but he's Celtic like... Loyal to the team that drafted him. Class act and plays the game the right way. He carries himself much differently than most NBA players. His shot is second to none, and he's CLUTCH! Love watching him play even when he plays our Celtics. 

Isn't it great getting to see Blake Griffin get some early run tonight. It would be even better if we get him to dunk the basketball! Blake is earning plenty of Tommy points tonight! Sam is in and expect him to have a quality game. JT is coming out hot tonight! 

C's need to STOP shooting freaking threes.... They have a lead but it should be by more. 

Second Quarter Moments

JB hits yet another midrange jumper! From last year to this year, his shot from there is vastly improved. It's become a HUGE weapon in his arsenal. No defense can stop him when he's hitting the middy! Another feather in his cap is how he gets to the rack with such controlled aggression. He's building an almost unstoppable offensive skill set. 

Marcus Smart just drew a charge when we desperately needed one. He always makes those huge defensive plays! He's not been himself this season, but he's like a gritty fighter who finds a way to win. The C's are yet again allowing the Blazers to get back into this game. 

C's should be up by twenty, but they just can't keep their foot on the gas. The Wolverine seems to have found his shot so far tonight. His passing has also been on point. A point guard on point! 

C's need to learn how to box the heck out! Lately they are getting destroyed on the glass. Fundamentals guys, at an early age I was taught how to box out! I'm sure you guys were as well. 

Third Quarter Moments

C's need to come out and blow the doors off this place. We need to see the offense attack these Blazers! They aren't exactly looking to play any defense. If we can build the lead I guarantee the Blazers will fold like origami. 

DWhite reads the D off the catch and scores on a one handed floater. His shot can be so efficient. There are other times where he hits shots no on else could. He's one of my favorite players!

JT has been elite overall tonight. Efficient shooting and he's getting to the line. He is simply wonderful to watch on a nightly basis. C's fans should enjoy each and every night he plays. 

C's are letting another lead fall to pieces. Timeout by Joe, let's see if they can right the ship. JT and the C's come out with a little more urgency. 

Fourth Quarter Moments

C's come out and exert their will. They are finally taking it to a team that they should beat. The Tatum finishes inside is nearly unstoppable! Dame is starting to heat up..... 

The lead is yet again slipping away.... 

C's make key plays on both ends to help seal this game. Happy St Patrick's Day!

C's have a tough game waiting for them in Utah tomorrow night. They better be prepared. Jazz are a very competitive bunch. Plus we get to see old friend Danny Ainge! 

 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?

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.
