Win or go fishing. C's visit Philly


 Celtics played a pretty decent first half, despite Jayson Tatum only scoring one point. The C's D made some nice plays and both DWhite and MB made some nice shots. Marcus Smart was extremely solid in the first half! 

The only way they are going to win tonight is by playing an incredible defensive game tonight. So far it's been nice. Marcus has led the charge on D and set the tone. Marcus has always prided himself on the defensive end. 

JT gets inside and scores his first field goal. Here we are in third and he finally scores. Let's hope it's followed up with many more. Personally I can't stand this Sixers team and how they flop. C's need to buckle down on D! 

JB takes a huge spill on the floor, the court is wet. Thankfully he's not injured, and seems to want to stay out there. It would be nice to have the C's make a run. The lead is shrinking as we speak... Not sure my heart can take this tonight. 

The wheels are starting to fall off as the C's have lost their lead. Why did I even have hope they might win. Harden is starting to flop and the calls are going towards the Sixers. DWhite hits a huge three! This game just doesn't feel right at all right now. 

JB with a big and one! RWill with the oop from Smart! C's trail after the third, do they really want to win?! There are twelve minutes left as we currently speak in the Celtics season. Do they have what it takes to win this final quarter?! I guess we will see...

JT gets in the paint and draws the foul. Hopefully he hits these and that gets his game going. Defense will be the key. Marcus to the line to grab the lead. C's just don't know how to win close games. MB for three! A defensive lapse leads to an easy Philly basket and the game is tied. 

Tatum to the rack and gets fouled and it should have been goal tending. He hits the first and second. Need to buckle up and play D. I just don't understand the C's D at times. Brown loses the ball and the lead may be the Sixers again. This team just doesn't have it...

C's have way too many turnovers tonight. Goodness gracious! This seems like the end of the road for these C's. Underachieving per usual. Lost a Finals they should have won. Now they are gonna lose to the Sixers in round two, a series they should have won. What an incredible disgrace we are watching. 

Tatum hits a three and C's steal a lead. Tatum with a step back three! C's by four.... Maybe he's woken up.... Will they be able to push this series back to Boston?!? Marcus with a huge save! Tatum gets hit inside and no call... Marcus with a huge shot. Please CHALLENGE THIS HORRID CALL! 

Overturned! Need a huge Defensive STOP NOW! BIG REBOUND! JAYSON CHRISTOPHER TATUM FOR THREE!!! Balls of steel in this fourth! Tatum just ended game 6 with yet another THREE! Now that's a championship win, but it doesn't matter if they don't win game seven! 

Bleed Green! Celtic Pride! Banner 18!

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
