Not the way to play

C's with another tough road game, this time in the city of brotherly love. I would expect to see a team that's foaming at the mouth after their loss to the TWolves. Generally the great teams don't take too kindly to losing. I want to see a statement win and a team locked in on D. We get the return of Derrick White after the birth of his second child. Truly one of life's greater blessings. 

1st Quarter 🏀

C's can't find the basket early on... Not the start I expected. Too many threes, yet we get JT to the rack with a two handed JAM! His driving ability has become spectacular! The way he uses his body and skill set is a true sign of his maturity. 

Stick Tap to the Celtics defense in the first quarter. The offense is still pretty sluggish tonight. JB needs to continue to attack the rim because his shot is off right now. JTs court vision is second to none lately. He always finds the right guy! C's despite a choppy start have found themselves with the lead. 

Tonight feels like another dog fight kinda game. Good news is JT hasn't gotten started yet and expect him to have a big one tonight. 

2nd Quarter ☘️🍀

As if he heard my words, JT to the rack and lays it in! JTs court vision once again is on point as he finds Sam I am for a three! The C's lead has dwindled, I'm not the Coach but a timeout is needed. Joe calls it but way too late. The lead is only two...

Personally I don't find these Sixers to be that impressive. Same old Sixers, they will have a good regular season and lose in the playoffs. Sam I Am fires back and get some points back for us. Sam I am is having a nice shooting night. Good to see DWhite back in the line up. If we had him against the wolves we would have won. 

Not impressed by the Cs up to this point in the game. This Sixers team isn't anything special. It would be nice to see them lock them down and go on a run. Need to get Porzingis involved on the offensive end. Great execution with the ball movement, eventually landing in Porzingis's hands for the deuce. 

 The C's don't seem to be clicking as a unit tonight. Defensively they are playing better than on offense. I hope they iron things out at the half. Tatum needs to be the guy in the third and fourth quarters. Very disappointed with the play in first half. C's trail by seven. For the first time all year they trail at the half. 

3rd Quarter 🏀🏀🏀

Why is Embid can throw himself into everyone and get the call. Those should be offensive fouls. For a big guy he plays very soft. Even when he's flopping into our defenders. Man Porzingis makes a great play and there's yet another terrible call by the refs. C's need to stand strong and over come these bad calls!

JB continues to drive into traffic and lose the ball. He's very pig headed sometimes, stop dribbling so much! JT and DWhite with back to back threes! It's so great seeing DWhite back! He brings it his all on the floor. Somehow the C's have a shot to grab the lead... Yet they can't... 

Al Horford with an epic block to lead us into a timeout. It's going to take the C's a lot to pull this one out. They need to grind it out on both ends. Very disappointed with the end of the third. C's look like disjointed. 

4th Quarter ☘️🍀☘️🍀

C's come up with a few quick buckets to cut into the lead. Porzingis with a three and now they need to play some D. Which doesn't look like it's going to happen. Not sure what's going on tonight but this isn't the Celtics team I expected. 

Cs haven't brought the energy necessary to win tonight. The lead is at seven for the Sixers. Tonight up to this point, the Celtics have underperformed. The refs have sucked and the Sixers have taken advantage of it. 

Jaylen Turnover Brown needs to stop shooting the ball. He's been awful tonight. I'm not sure what happened tonight but these C's put up enough bricks to build a house. I could care less next game is for the play in garbage, to me it's about playing better basketball. Which also means winning! 

Not sure how long into last season it took me to be disgusted with a result, but tonight hits that mark. Tonight meant more to Philly than it did the C's. C's just don't realize they get everyone's best each and every game. Kudos to the Sixers for the regular season win. Come playoffs they will choke per usual. 

Goodnight Cs fans. On to Friday night...

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
