PreSeason Game Knicks vs Celtics

 From all reports we will see the Celtics starters play regular minutes. DWhite gets the start and we will get a glimpse of what we can be. Al will come off the bench tonight. I really want to see how Jrue and DWhite play together. Back to DWhite, let's sign this man to a contract extension! I want him to be here and retire here! Love watching him play for us. 

First play of the game sees JT run point as Jrue posts up and kicks out to Z for three! Tatum again runs the point and finds DWhite for three! The C's have unicorns on this roster. When you have a guard who can post up like Jrue does watch out! That's old school basketball when you see guys posting up! C's are playing with true aggression! Plus they are hitting that glass! It's the little things that add up! You want the ring, every play matters. 

Al Horford with the hustle play of the day! Throwing it off of the Knicks player out of bounds! Gotta love the hustle out of your oldest player. Hoping this is the season Al gets his ring. Al is the consummate pro, and he's been solid for the C's for both his stints here. He was a good player for the Hawks, but he's a Celtic through and through. 

I like seeing both Hauser and Pritchard out there together. Both of those guys will keep the defense honest out there. Both guys have the ability to be elite shooters. I do believe Pritchard has the higher upside between the two. 

It's clear the C's offense is based on shooting the three still. My hope is that when it's not falling they learn to go inside and not settle for bad threes. This season should show how they have grown as a team and Joe as a coach. Forty one points in the first is a nice way to start things off. I hope this team is a defense first oriented team. Defense leads to offense and that leads to wins. 

Let us all relish in Mike Gorman's final season as Celtics announcer. Boy am I gonna miss him. How lucky are we as Celtics fans to have him. He deserves to see this team grab a banner before he's done. It's an end to an era... With Tommy passing away and Mike retiring what are we gonna do! Scal just doesn't cut the mustard for me. 

I truly thought last year's team had what it took to win it all. Sadly they failed. I really believe if this team stays healthy it's our title to win. Denver and Milwaukee will be threats but we are the team to beat!

Nik Stauskas adds "shooting with size" voiced by Brad Stevens

 As a 6'6" shooting guard, 28-year-old Nik Stauskas adds that shooting with size sorely needed by the Boston Celtics. Drafted 8th-overall by the Sacramento Kings in 2014, Stauskas has bounced around to various teams since then. Nik Stauskas' deal with the Boston Celtics includes non-guaranteed salary for the second season in 2022-23, a source tells @celticsblog . — Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) March 4, 2022 Nik has never averaged more than 9.5 points per game in the NBA, but Boston is most likely counting on his production for Grand Rapids in the G League as the incentive to sign him. In 17 games thus far, he has averaged 24.7 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 4.8 APG - while shooting 50% on field goals and 45% on treys. Nik Stauskas is signing a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics, his agents Mark Bartelstein and Andy Shiffman of @PrioritySports tell ESPN. Stauskas had an historic week, scoring 100 points on 57 and 43 point performances in back-to-back games for Grand Rapids. — Adrian Wo
