Late Night Basketball in the Golden State

C's are entering a very rough stretch, it starts tonight with the Warriors. The Warriors are a wounded duck right and are not having a great season. That's what makes them dangerous tonight. After tonight we see the Kings, Clippers and Lakers. Let's hope we will see the Celtics best basketball during these next few games. 

1st Q 🏀

No KP, but we have Amazing Al! He's been very good this season. He finds DWhite for an early three from the corner. JT also finds him for another three. DWhite is locked and loaded. The man is playing like an All Star this season! His all around game has been incredible this season. Excellent D by JT closing the gap, getting the steal and jamming it home! Tonight feels like it could be a shootout. Brissett with a hard take and jam! Brissett with the steal and jam! He's bringing that energy, I love it. Tatum is still in the locker room after limping off a few minutes ago. I hope he's ok... DWhite from deep again! JB is shredding the Warriors D tonight. Derrick White has three blocks tonight! JT has made his way back to the bench. Queta our here working! Love his effort! C's lead after the first!

2nd Q 🏀🏀

You have to be pleased with the way the C's played in that first quarter. Everyone made an impact and seems to be locked in. Good teams on these type of road trips lock in and want to win em all. I'm seeing that so far tonight. Let's hope it continues as we start the second quarter. Jrue Holiday snatches the rock and scores. That's why he's the best perimeter defender in the league. Queta working the boards, finds PP for THREE! PP in turn finds Queta for a deuce! It's all about give and take... C's have a decent lead, yet why not increase it before the half. C's are getting great looks right, just need to start knocking them down. C's have allowed the Warriors all the way back in the game. What am I doing awake??? DWhite from way down town BANG! C's lead by three at the half. 

3rd Q 🏀🏀🏀

JB and DWhite start us off here in the third. If we can have a good third, we might be able to break these Warriors. Klay Thompson is a big whiny baby, you traveled accept it. JB is dominant tonight! He forces Curry to commit his fourth foul! C's keep pushing the pace and have increased their lead. JB draws the fifth foul against Curry. Queta is a rebounding MACHINE! C's are rolling! Warriors have no real answers here in the third. C's finish strong and lead after three. 

4th Q 🏀🏀🏀🏀

A quarter to go, Celtics need to finish off this game with poise and efficiency. Very slow start for the C's here in the fourth. Pritchard from way down town! Hauser has been bad from deep tonight. So many bricks he could build a new home. Warriors keep fighting back. Joe with a big time out here, settle the fellas and finish the right way! Jrue Holiday with a huge corner three, settles the waters. Time to get Hauser out of the game. He just doesn't have it tonight. Al Horford just sent Curry's weak shot outta here. HUGE BLOCK! Things are getting really tight. This game is all tied up, we have a challenge. 

Overtime 🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀

Disappointed in this overtime to this point. Total let down...

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
