C's look to tame the Wolves


1st Quarter Moments 

We have a back and forth game so far tonight. Als offense hasn't been there but he's running the floor nicely tonight. The three point percentage leader hits yet another one! Who knew Malcolm Brogdon was an assassin from deep! 

Interesting things going on with this current C's lineup. Where neither of the Jays are in the game. It's not ideal from my perspective but I'm not the coach. Maybe Joe strikes gold with this special lineup. 

Blake Griffin is easily one of the brightest spots in this season for the C's. Mark my words he will be a huge piece in guarding Giannis if we gave them in the playoffs. He's strong, savvy and willing to give up his body. I love him! 

2nd Quarter Moments 

Despite the fact that the C's aren't shooting very well, they have a slim lead. Neither team is shooting it well. All these NBA teams are focused on the three ball. It's sickening! That's not basketball! 

Malcolm Brogdon is beyond smooth getting to the cup. He's so fast and uses his body in way that you can't guard him. I love every faucet of his game. He's a throw back to better days. Tommy Heinsohn would absolutely adore him.

Derrick White is special on DEFENSE! He's so solid fundamentally, and his work ethic enhances that. He very rarely takes any plays off. He is a true Celtic, he never complains and just does his damn job. He's a true all around player. One of the brightest spots to this season. 

Cs take a very slim lead into the third. 

3rd Quarter Moments 

Despite his woeful shooting, JT is getting to the line. I'll take that over jacking up threes. He needs to continue to attack and eventually his shot will fall. I see and feel his injuries are affecting his shot from deep. He needs to heal for the post season run. 

JT with a hammer poster jam on Gobert. He just made Gobert look like a relic of basketballs past. I've never been a Gobert guy. Tatum just reminded us why he's a menace at the rim. That dunk was incredible! 

C's once again have faltered after having a decent lead. I really hope that come playoff time this doesn't happen. It's sickening to watch them blow so many leads. Is it boredom, is it laziness, it's a multi layered issue. Time to clean it up and get it going.  

4th Quarter Moments

It's all about finishing off this game, because the Sixers are about to beat the Cavs. How is it possible that we are losing yet another lead. JB nails an absolutely huge three! He's been excellent over these past few games. 

Despite Marcus Smarts poor shooting, his defense on that last play is elite. Stealing the rock and diving on the floor! He infuriates me with his shot selection sometimes, but his defense is special. 

Scal is beyond annoying, saying the C's get calls. They just got away with a few.... Shut up dude, this is why we want you out of the booth. You are no Tommy Heinsohn. The CELTICS NEVER GET CALLS NEVER!

JB is continuing to attack and getting to the line. The man has absolutely no fear what so ever. I love it! Whenever he attacks that basket, get out the way! JB for a sweet step back three! Incredible fall away off the glass by JB over Gobert who is overrated! 

Marcus the Wolverine Smart with some epic back to back baskets. Pure strength and grit on those plays. Keeping the C's slim lead alive. 

Knights Knotes

I tell ya they make nothing look easy, I feel the rest of the regular season will be a rollercoaster. Hopefully they can flip a switch and become playoff beasts. I just don't buy it myself, you have to go hard all the damn time! Go hard or go home! See you on St Patrick's Day in Portland. We get to watch my favorite team play one of my favorite non Celtics, who would be the perfect Celtic. Yes I'm talking about Dame Lillard. 

Bleed Green! Celtic Pride!

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. Red Auerbach, in yet another heist, brought in both McHale and center Robert Parish (via trade) prior to the Celtics' 1980-81 Champion

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
