Charlotte is Buzzing

C's are down both Al Horford and Derrick White tonight. All I know is I can't wait for Wednesday night when it's Celtics Bucks. 

1st Quarter ☘️ 

C's open the scoring first tonight, hopefully that's the start of many. JB with a bit of a post up move and scores. He could develop that part of his game. Posting up is an underutilized aspect to today's basketball. Jrue Holiday with the incredible block on Miller. Miller thought he had an easy one. Jrue was like I DON'T THINK SO! Get that weak crap outta here! C's started out relatively decent but have slowed up a bit. They can't allow the Hornets to hang around, as they did with the Grizz. Z posting up should happen all game. OB out here making plays already. Earning the C's an extra possession. Good news for the C's as PP hits his first shot of the night. It would be nice for him to have a big game tonight. Especially without Al and Derrick. JT with the sweet pass to PP and he hits his second three! PP for another three! He's feeling it tonight! C's lead after one, PP is four of four! 

2nd Quarter 🍀🍀

Tatum pulls up with the C's first possession and nails a three. OB keeps making plays! Love the kids energy out there. He needs some polish on the offensive end, but he works hard. PP hits another one!!! Tatum hits another three as well! He's feeling it himself tonight! I will adamantly say I do not like the three ball, but when the C's are hitting em I'm all for it. I miss the days of old school post up and kick basketball. Those 80s and early 90s Celtics played the game the right way. Gotta love seeing Sam Cassell during the timeout working with the fellas on where to be. JT with a pull up there and he's got 22 so far tonight. C's up by 16 and that's how it should be! JT with the fade away against old friend Gordon Hayward. JB needs to learn to follow his shot. Misses the three, but had he followed it would have had the rebound. C's allow Hornets back into the game... Jrue Holiday and JB swarm Miller and he dribbles it off his foot! DEFENSE! JT to the line and he's going to hit thirty in this first half. Cs up by eleven at the half. 

3rd Quarter ☘️🍀☘️

Cs finding Z in the post and it's an automatic bucket. Z with the block on the other end as well! Sloppy play is allowing the Hornets back into the game. JT just made Gordon Hayward look foolish on D. C's need to get it going, for some reason they tend to not come out ready in some of these third quarters. Porzingis hits a much needed three. The lead is only five... C's keep letting the Hornets back into the game. If they want the win it's there, they need to pick up their play now. Jrue Holiday gets the ball inside off the timeout. Great play call by Coach Joe. Both Holiday and Pritchard play like bigs, unafraid to rebound and get in the paint. C's lead after three quarters. 

4th Quarter 🍀☘️🍀☘️

Sam Hauser is cold as ice tonight. He needs to stop shooting. PP hits a HUGE three. PP is dazzling the fans with that move as he scores. The C's bench lineup has made some plays. Especially off the timeout by Joe earlier in the quarter. Sam I Am Hauser finally gets a three to fall. Came at a good time! JT taking Hayward thru the spin and draws the foul. Had him in the spin cycle! Wash and Rinse! C's need to regroup and finish strong. Porzingis in the right place at the right time with the possible AND ONE! JT has just hit 40! It's Holiday week as Jrue nails a nothing but net three! No timeout by Joe at all, forcing the C's to figure it out. Not sure I like this strategy, as the lead is only two. All of a sudden the game is tied. C's ball with a chance to win it. 

Overtime ☘️🍀🏀🍀☘️

JB start us off with a nice jumper, he's been quiet tonight. Tatum hits a huge three that gives the C's the lead. Once again it's a tied game, Hornets ball. C's need a huge stop of they want a shot to win this. C's end up losing but the Hornets clock operator screwed us at the end.

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.
