Road Warriors? C's visit the Hawks


First Quarter Moments 

Tatum and Smart both are hitting threes early on. The defense looks like absolute garbage to start. Marcus and Al with back to back threes. JT with a huge jam! JT with a huge three! Dude is balling early on! JT is straight fire to start tonight. If he stays on this pace we are looking at a 40/50 piece.

Tonight's defense has been absolutely awful. Things need to be tightened up, because you can't play this kind of weak defense. The Hawks, are getting way too many open shots tonight. C's need to get their hands up and toughen up out there. Way too loose out there, it's unacceptable to watch. 

Tonight's first quarter, has been the worst defensive performance I've seen in a while. Let's hope the C's can man up over the next few quarters. Tighten up on D and you might be able to run away with tonights game. 

Second Quarter Moments

Malcolm Brogdon is just a smooth operator driving to the cup. He's been the absolute best player off the C's bench this season. Truly deserving of the sixth man of the year. He is going to be a huge part of winning this year's NBA title. 

Looking for Jaylen Marselles Brown to have a big one right now. He's back home and it's time to show up! We need to see him get to the rim and hammer home a few dunks. 

C's are EXPLODING on offense! This is a tough pace to keep up but let's hope they do. The key is to keep the ball moving and good things will happen. You have to be balls to the wall all damn game. That's the only way you are going to have a successful road trip. 

Loving seeing MB man up and guard John Collins. You aren't pushing Mr Brogdon around my friend. He's a stout defensive player. Underrated from this writers perspective. C's will have to finish this quarter off with a good run. Let's see that lead blossom to fifteen plus. 

JT has been attacking the rim with aggression! C's should feel a bit discouraged not being up by more. 

3rd Quarter Moments

C's need to come out ready to destroy! The way DWhite gets into the paint is very efficient. His herky jerky motion is tough for defenders. He's the perfect Celtic. 

JT seems locked in still! I want to see him get inside a little more. JB getting his patented mid range is saweeeeeeet! I expect both guys to light up the scoreboard the rest of the game. 

Time to get the ball moving, need to build on this lead fellas. Marcus Smart is an assist creator out there. Gotta love it! 

Not the best finish to the quarter, but the C's have the lead. 

4th Quarter Moments

Bey falls over his own two feet and the C's get called for a foul. Absolutely horrendous. Can we actually have a game where Scal doesn't fawn all over the other team..

Time to get the Jays back in this game. Blake Griffin with some active hands in the game tonight. 

Al Horford hitting clutch threes! Amazing Al is SPECTACULAR! LOVE AL!

Knights Knotes 

Here's a gripe I have about this game is the fact that Saddiq Bey plays above who he is everytime we play them. Against anyone else he's A JAG! Get real with these shots he's making tonight. 

Heres another complaint I have, Trae Young is getting preferable calls against JT. What are we doing?! Tatum doesn't even come close to him on a screen and gets called. What a JOKE! 

Scal has hit my last nerve tonight. Stop with the all out love for the other teams players. Get a room dude! 

Young is a bit of a punk, hitting Smart in his man area. Young needs to realize Marcus would kick his butt! 

Overall the Cs played well, Tatum went off, MB, DW, Al and JB played well! Bleed Green! Celtic Pride! 

Side Note saw my nephew play today in his playoffs and he scored fifteen. It was so much fun being in the gym watching him play. Brought back good memories of my own playing days. Did some talking ( coaching ) to him afterwards. Love basketball I really do.

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
