Revenge of the Celtics?!

 First Quarter Thoughts.......

Rob has become quite the passer, love the way he found Al for a three. That's a smart and high basketball IQ play! The way this Cavs team gets at it is very impressive. 

Marcus Smart diving on the floor is something I'll always enjoy seeing. Off the break he finds JT for the monster jam! Love the way this team is running early on. The more this team runs the better they are. It all started on the defensive end, because defense wins championships! 

JB with the off the glass beauty! Love the way he isn't afraid to attack the paint vs these Cavs bigs. The bigger they are the harder they fall! I don't believe there is anyone else in the league that plays with such aggression going into the paint! Thankful JB plays for the good guys!

Derrick White is just sooooo underated! Flying in from the weak side and getting the offensive board. Finds JB for a one handed jack hammer DUNK! I think Derrick is a special player. He's a possession creator!

2nd Quarter Thoughts........

This second quarter has been two teams trading jabs back and forth. These two have played some very competitive games this season and tonight is no different. What's scary about this Cavs team is their length. It's very daunting, but the C's have no fear against them. 

The way these refs call fouls on the C's is beyond ludicrous. Al sets a perfect screen and we get called for an offensive foul. You see plenty of other teams do it and the whistle never blows. Sick and tired of these one sided calls. 

Any thoughts C's fans if we end up playing the Cavs in the playoffs?? I think it would be a heck of a series. Al Horford hits another pure three pointer. Al seems to be locked in like a heat seeking missile! Keep feeding the big fella! You have to admire the level Al is playing at. He had some good years in Atlanta but his time in Boston is special! Al will be remembered as a true Celtic!

3rd Quarter Thoughts........

Most third quarters see the C's come out flat like a soda bottle left open. Tonight would be a great night to buck that trend. The C's must have heard my thoughts, because they have come out hot! Some good defense and good passing have them up by ten! 

Rob Williams is the quicker picker upper, meaning he's cleaning up on the glass. This young fella just gobbles up the boards! There are so many times he earns the Celtics extra offensive possessions. When he's healthy he's a monster. 

JT shows why he's special, getting to the cup and scoring with the left! The MVP is here to play! JTs basketball instincts have grown since he came into the league. He has taken over this quarter, getting to the rim and hitting his shots! As a Celtics fan you have to love seeing him play on a regular basis. He hits a step back three vs Mobley, oh my goodness! At the end of his career he may be one of the All time great Celtics.

4th Quarter Thoughts.......

C's come out with a hefty lead to start the fourth! C's need to continue to move the ball and not get stagnant with this lead. C's shots are falling short right now and the Cavs have made a run. Cs need to take a timeout and regroup. 

Off the timeout Al goes nothing but net from three! He's been pure from deep tonight! Al decides he wants to share the love finds JB and he hits the three! Nice to see the energy back in this team! 

The way these C's allow other teams to get back into games is worrisome. However it is the NBA and every team makes a run! The C's have become a bit sloppy on offense, they will need to tighten it up for the stretch run! 

JT has made up for his subpar performance the other night. This young man is very special! He should be the MVP of the league. C's getting way too sloppy right now, come on guys!

Celtics win against a very good Cavs team! 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.
