End of the road?! A gritty heartfelt performance tonight.

 If this team has any pride in themselves then they need to show it tonight. I honestly don't know how it came to this being down three to zero. I will put the blame on Wyc and Brad for letting Ime go and not hiring a competent coach. Then the blame lies on this team quitting last game. 

C's are taking everything Miami is throwing at them. They sustained a few blows and are now in quite a decent run. GWill has nailed a huge three and the C's have a small lead. C's are going to need absolute heart tonight. I want to believe they do but I'm not certain. 

C's have allowed the Heat way too many second chance opportunities. C's just turned their defense into offense. Need to see more of that. The defense can be so hit or miss. Almost as if they haven't been practicing it at all. 

Their offensive ball movement has been decent up to this point. C's aren't embarrassing themselves so that's something to hang your head on tonight. Shaq and Barkley killing the C's and everything they are saying is true. Sad but true, I even find watching this team play painful in this series. 

This team has no guts at all, this looks like the end. I don't see a win happening....

C's are on a decent run and have cut into the lead. The C's have actually used a timeout. Let's see if they can draw up a decent play. DWhite with a huge three after the timeout. The game is tied. JB drives and the C's have a lead. JT drives and scores and it's a four point lead. 

Marcus freaking Smart just hit a THREE! I guess when ya need it he gets it. I will say this I hear a heart beat from this team. It's slowly getting stronger... DWhite with the aggressive take and gets to the line. That kind of attack is going to be needed to compete in this one. 

Al with a huge offensive rebound, you have to admire his work ethic. The game is tight and it might be the C's undoing. Marcus with a huge three again! Big threes being hit now! GWill has shown up tonight. C's played a pretty good third. Almost like their basketball lives depended on it. As we approach the fourth the nerves set it. Will they crack once again. 

Tatum needs to return sooner rather than later. Need to actually score some baskets here in the fourth. The defense looks terrible and Brown hasn't been able to find the bottom of the net. 
JTs jumper is pure, and JB Jams one home with authority! JT enters the game and good things happen... Kudos to DWhite for the incredible block!

GWill just blocked playoff Jimmy! JT blocks Vincent! JT for THREEEEEEEEE!!! C's are actually having a good fourth quarter! Solid D and solid O! Need to finish this one off if they can. Marcus telling the guys to RUN! JB gets to the line for the and one! 

No team has ever won after being down 3-0. We aren't there yet, but it starts with one. Then you shoot for two and if your lucky three. After that it's anyone's game. After quitting the other night, they came with it tonight. It's nice to see they actually played with heart.

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.
