History in the making?! Down 0-3 the Celtics look to make history as the series is all nodded up.

Historically speaking the Celtics are the franchise that defines the NBA. Historically they are winners, 18 true NBA Banners hang in the rafters. Countless retired numbers live in the rafters. They made their living in the 50s and 60s winning titles. Eight in a row at one point. Never seen again and never will. The 70s and 80s also brought home some more titles! The 90s and 2000s have brought only one title and lots of loss. Reggie and Len along with multiple other titles. Here we are after being down 0-3... All tied up thanks to Derrick Whites "Moment". Will that lead to not only history but also Banner 18? It has to right?! The Denver Nuggets await...

Here we are seconds away from tip off. Let's go Celtics, let's see another repeat of game seven vs the Sixers. Total domination on both ends of the court. As a fan and writer I'm nervous as all heck. JT passes up the three and gets to the line. JB is cooking early! Nice timeout by Joe! 

Going to need to see a Celtics run at some point. Very slow start tonight. This game sucks right now. Can't hit a three and won't stop shooting them. Go to the damn hoop. 

Need a huge second quarter tonight. Al for three means nothing. Bam keeps setting illegal screens. JB with a nice steal and gets fouled. JB for THREEEEEEEEE! This game SUCKS! Talk about a crap half. I'm hurting from a basketball perspective. 

The second half was just a continuous walk of shame for this group. They shot way too many threes. Didn't play a lot of defense and are now home for the year. Kudos to JT for playing on that ankle, anyone who says he soft can close it. 

Honestly a very disappointing end to what should have been a better outcome. This team is just so hard to predict. Going to be a long summer.

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
