Detroit visits Boston

 I didn't write about the Lakers and Celtics because I was enjoying family time. However I was presently surprised with how well the C's played and encouraged by them not panicking after the lead shrunk. They showed why they are the best team in the NBA. Tonight the C's take on a two win team who has lost 27 straight games. Let's hope the C's stay focused and blow them off the Garden floor. 

1st Q 🍀

Celtics ball movement on this first possession was efficient. Al finds JT for a two handed JAM! C's need to exploit the KP match up. No one on this Pistons team can guard him. This Celtics start has been very uninspiring right now. Right on cue JT nails the three! Time for a large run! Al out there fighting for second chance opportunities. That's what makes Al a winner. JT exposes the Pistons D and finds KP over the top. Still not feeling how close this game is right now. C's are trailing right now and it's disgusting. Queta is a breath of fresh air out there. Love how hard he works, he's a guy you have to root for!

2nd Q 🏀🏀

C's have a lead! PP is a guy who can do a lot of the little things out there. Snares the rebound off the miss and nails a three! His ability despite his size shows how hard he plays. The kids got heart, with the skills to follow. Off the outlet pass he slowed down a bit and quickly got his shot off. That was a beautiful play, to see it live was sweet. My words can't do it justice. I'm still waiting for the C's to truly wake up. Too many stupid threes are costing us tonight. This game is just awful right now. Horrible half. H O R R I B L E!!! 

3rd Q 🍀☘️🍀

This game is thoroughly gross to waste anyone's time watching right now. The bets were put on the Pistons tonight, I wonder why that was? I thought the C's were over playing to the level of their competition. Right now they are playing like a freaking two win team. Just plain disgusted with this game right now. They have a half to redeem themselves. C's look a tad better in this quarter. They still trail and have a lot of work to do. Either way you slice it, we shouldn't be in this position. C's are down by seven as we speak. They need to keep grinding. C's down by three... They went from their worst half of the season, to what could be their best quarter right now. The lead is down to one. KP out here diving for loose balls and getting this crowd going. Some how we are all tied up.  

4th Q 🏀🏀🏀🏀

That well played third quarter only matters if they finish this game off. It was like a tale of two teams. The first half looked like they were running in mud. In the third it was if the Pistons weren't even on the court. Let's see how this one finishes up. DWhite opens it up with a deuce! C's have a lead!!! Derrick White is taking over this fourth quarter! He finds Al for THREE! DWhite with an INCREDIBLE block! C's need to make a stop... This is a tight game. C's are still way to three happy. Gotta attack these guys inside. It's coming down to the wire and we need to C the C's make plays down the stretch. They finally have a decent lead up by six! 

Overtime 🍀🏀☘️🏀🍀

How are we in overtime? Well this is what happens when you allow inferior teams to grab nineteen points leads in the first half. C's playing this overtime efficiently! White, KP, and Jrue making big plays. JTs passing is lit and Al making big rebounds. Anyone who thought a game vs the Pistons would be this entertaining is full of it. Tonight's rebounding has been very detrimental to our success. Yet some how some way they are gonna pull this off. Kudos to the Pistons for playing their behinds off. Celtics win! 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.
