C's look to continue their streak at the Garden


The Celtics are looking to extend their home winning streak. They welcome the Cleveland Cavs tonight. 

1st Q 🏀
C's open up with a left handed deuce from Mr First Quarter Jaylen Brown! JB is at his best in the first quarter, he's like the spark that lights the fire. C's are a bit lackluster on the defensive end. The Cavs have the early lead, and we see our first timeout. C's are going to need to match the Cavs intensity. We need to get Porzingis going! There's no Mobley and Porzingis should be able to handle Jarrett Allen. C's are missing a lot of good looks early on. The law of averages says those shots should start falling. JB is the only Celtic who has scored. This isn't how I saw this game going. Still plenty of time, but we need a run here. Man is this game starting to worry me. C's trail after one, let's hope they get it going. Mitchell leads all scores after one. He always plays off his rocker against the C's. 

2nd Q 🏀🏀
We need to see a clinic on both ends of the floor this quarter. If the C's want to climb back into this game they need an epic second. Get that ball moving and run! C's have no fast break points at all. That needs to change if they want to win. Al Horford has been excellent finding guys for high percentage shots this season. Love the way he sees the floor. Such an intelligent player. The defense has stepped up, and the offense is following suit! Luke Kornet out here working hard and getting the C's second chance points. DWhite is in the board and nails a beautiful three. DWhite with another three, that man is special! DWhite again! Bing! Bang! Boom! C's need to tighten up on Mitchell. DWhite doing everything right now, scoring and making plays on D. He needs to retire a Celtic. I like the resolve from the C's tonight. They have almost fought the entire way back. Just like that we are all tied up! Porzingis is not doing much tonight. Hopefully he can get it going in the second half. What a find by Jrue as JB cuts hard to the paint. The entire play was pure basketball beauty. Basketball at it's core is poetry in motion. C's trail by one...

3rd Q 🏀🏀🏀
JB becoming Mr Third Quarter as well?? He starts us off with the first five points of the third. He's the spark that lit the fire and will galvanize these C's. Why does Scal continue to annoy me?! Tommy was special in how you called the game as us fans felt. Scal almost does the opposite, especially when he's arguing calls that benefit the C's. The third quarter ruts continue to hurt the C's. Joe calls a much needed timeout. C's have way too many turnovers tonight. Great cut by Porzingis, which is what JB needed as he was stuck. DWhite for three! C's need to play some freaking D. Great block by Porzingis! Jrue hits the corner dagger and the C's have the lead! C's with the lead after three.

4th Q 🏀🏀🏀🏀
C's need to kick things up a notch as we enter the fourth. Sam I Am for three! All tied up yet again, C's are on the move! Tristan Thompson is still in the league?? C's and Cavs are nip and tuck up to this point. It should be an exciting finish tonight. Porzingis has been very good in this second half. Love seeing him get in the post. JT for THREE! C's looking strong right now. Every star from the starting five has made huge plays in the fourth! Despite a very slow start these Celtics they didn't fold and fought for this tough win.

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
