Cooking up some fried Hawks!

First Quarter Moments

Hawks come out throwing haymakers, shooting plenty of three point shots. Which leads to a pretty decent lead. The Celtics defense and rebounding have been lax. Need to amp it up and put the Hawks back in their place. 

C's have started to put the clamps on these birds and are fighting back! You have to love this team falling back on playing D and not jacking up threes. Defense was their calling card last season and it's needed now. 

C's finish off the quarter with a BANG! Malcom Brogdon hits the deep deep three! I absolutely love this man. He does everything you want a basketball player to do. He's so damn smooth! 

Second Quarter Moments 

Both Jays seem to have an edge to them so far. Not only tonight, but last game as well. I truly believe that finals loss has left a horrible taste in their mouths. The only answer is to win Banner 18 and I believe they will!

Derrick White along with Malcolm Brogdon have been two of my favorites this season and in this game. They will each continue to contribute in huge ways this post season. You have to love that the C's after that early start have shown the Hawks who owns this series. 

Third Quarter Moments

JB with a monster Jam! Marcus Smart has been very aggressive in this third getting to the hoop. Whenever he has a head of steam he's impossible to guard. Al Horford is doing it on both ends tonight! Blocking shots and getting inside and scoring. 

The Celtics have answered everything the Hawks have thrown at them. Kudos to the Hawks for playing harder tonight. But they ain't winning a game this series.

JB since putting on that mask has been super hero like! The way he soars to the hoop, you would think he's flying! All I can hear is the Superman theme song! Hawks are fighting back, and showing they have heart. 

C's will need a huge fourth to put the Hawks to bed. 

Fourth Quarter Moments 

DWhite getting in the paint and scores easily. For sure one of his sweet spots inside the painted area! He's just a solid NBA player, who happens to love the organization he plays for. 

JB just told Murray to get that weak crap out! Love how much JB has improved playing defense. DWhite with a HUGE three! DWhite is crashing the boards, dude is a Man amongst boys! 

Malcom breaks down the D and finds DWhite inside! It's great watching these two on the floor together! DWhite with another three! Let's Go I love this dude! Scal seems to have a weird Crush on Trae Young. 

Derrick White!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dude is doing a little bit of everything! Scoring! Rebounding! Blocking  Shots! He's even getting some MVP chants! 

JT is dealing assists like a dealer at a black jack table! His passing has improved immensely! I love watching him pass the rock! JT with the block and a rim rocking crowd stomping JAM! C's are ROLLING! It's Gino Time! 

Celtics win! Bleed Green! Banner 18!

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.
