Brotherly Love

 Celtics are entering into tonight's matchup without Jaylen Brown and Kristaps Porzingis. Is tonight the night JT stamps his MVP status?! I'm taking bets as to how many times Joel Embid flops out there tonight. I'm going at least five plus. For a big guy, he seems as soft as Charmin. C's tend to be pretty tough against teams on the second night of back to backs. Win incoming? Despite being short handed this will give us insight into who can step up when our big guns are down. 

First Quarter ☘️

I know it's early but the defense looks locked in. We have Sam in the starting lineup and he's going to have to deliver tonight. Al Horford on D making Embid look foolish. Al has historically given Embid fits and tonight isn't any different. Al gives it to Embid on the offensive end with the nothing but net jumper. Jrue Holiday owns the post vs other guards. He's built like a fine piece of machinery. Expect him to have a good night on both ends. Personally I want to see Derrick White get going. He hasn't been scoring very much but he continues to do everything else. We see the stock exchange in action as DWhite finds Jrue for two! Celtics should be able to expose the weaknesses in this Sixers defense. Delano Banton makes an impact with the offensive tip in. That's what you want to see when guys get their opportunity. PP for three is the best thing for him and the C's, especially with his first shot going in. Would be really nice to see him get 15 plus points tonight. Svi off the bench for three! The bench is ready to roll tonight! Talk about a heck of a first quarter! C's lead by double digits. That's how you silence the home crowd!

Second Quarter 🏀🏀

Despite a few lapses on D, the C's defense has been pretty active. If they keep this up they should end up with the win. Everyone who has come into the game has made an impactful play. That's what you need if you are going to be a championship team. It hurts not having JB and Z, but everyone else is stepping up. JT has led with his play out there tonight. That's what you want from your best player. C's need to tighten things up. They are allowing the Sixers to get back into this game. Definitely not liking how we are playing right now. Every team has lulls, but this is unacceptable. You had the Sixers by fifteen and now the lead has dwindled. Timeout by Coach Joe at a much needed time. It didn't do anything... The lead has evaporated. Jrue for three, and we grab the lead back. C's trail at the half, and it shouldn't be this way. 

Third Quarter ☘️🍀☘️

C's need to have one of those punch you in the mouth third quarters. They need to get back to what they were doing in the first quarter. It needs to start with defense, which should lead to transition offense. JT hits a much needed three, he needs to carry this team tonight. Whether through him scoring or finding the right guys through his passing. Hauser is off tonight, he needs to stop shooting and Joe needs to put someone else in. Al is hitting some huge threes in this third quarter. Some payback for how they treated him in Philly, when he was here. JTs post up game is shaping up to be an incredible weapon. Dare I say Jordan like... If he truly develops it, he will be unstoppable! C's need to respond now with JT on the bench. Jrue starts it off getting inside and scoring. He's a guy who can lead the unit without JT. C's lead after three, onto the fourth. 

Fourth Quarter 🏀🏀🏀🏀

DWhite to the line to start us off for the fourth. DWhite with the jumper, and he's leading the squad right now. White is such a good player at seeing the floor and knowing where guys are gonna be. This is DWhites quarter, he's doing everything out there. Hitting big shots and making the right passes. He's such a heady player, and always seems to make the right play. The combo of he and Jrue are the perfect player. Glad we have both of them! Luke Kornet is an offensive rebounding machine. Great D by DWhite which leads to transition, JT with the and one!!! Al with a HUMONGOUS BLOCK, which leads to DWhite with a huge THREE! ICE WATER IN HIS VEINS! Defense leads to offense! Let's GO! All the top Dawgs made huge plays tonight. Loving what they did in this second half! 

Bleed Green! Celtic Pride!

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.
