C's welcome the Jazz and hope they sing the blues!

Celtics welcome the Utah Jazz to the Boston Garden looking to defend their undefeated home court status. Keys to tonight's game are winning the rebound battle and playing tight D. Jazz have been playing decent ball lately, but they haven't played a team as good as the C's. 

1st Q ☘️

The best starting lineup in basketball is ready to go! No Al Horford tonight, given we will be playing tomorrow night. C's start off the game with back to back BLOCKS! First one by JT and the second one by JB! DWhite for three as he continues his epic start to the season. Jrue with the Jam and the C's are off and running tonight! JB with the UNSTOPPABLE fade away! No one on this planet can guard that. C's ball movement has been very crisp so far this evening. They really have the ability on offense to do whatever they want. DWhite just made Lauri look silly, he's sneaky quick. We have a JB to HAUSER alley oop! Hauser diving on the floor earning a Tommy point! He's all over the floor tonight! You have to admire the hard work that young man puts into the game. OB has also made an impact on the defensive end, diving on the floor to earn the C's the possession. Give that man a Tommy point! This could be where he impresses. Defense and earning those hustle points! Cs lead after the first. 

2nd Q 🍀🍀

Cs shot 46 percent in the first let's keep that going here in the second. Sam is locked in tonight. His rainbow threes are something to behold. He's a heck of a shooter when he's on, but the question is will he transfer to the post season? Does his game stand strong? I'd like to say yes, but I'm not sure how much time he will see in those games. Something to ponder for all C's fans... Kudos to the Celtics as all five starters are in the conversation for the All Star game. I'm sure they would all love to make it. Yet I believe they all have a bigger goal which Banner 18. Jrue Holiday is a wizard with the ball! Making the jazz D look like guys who never played basketball before. The Celtics have the Jazz singing the blues right now. This game and half has been all Celtics and more! C's lead at the half. 

3rd Q ☘️☘️☘️

What can't this Celtics team do? Honestly they do everything well, when they are fully locked in. Defensively they can lock teams up. Both JT and JB have proven they can lock guys up. The Stock Exchange is unreal on D and KP swats everything on his radar. Offensively they move the ball like a well oiled machine. The way they spread the floor is second to none. You have guys who have both inside and outside games. Such a well rounded team on both ends. I may harp on guys throughout the year, but I love this starting five. How can you not root for each and every one of them to succeed. I mean they play for each other as it should be. I tell ya it's nice the C's are able to rely on getting KP in the post. That will be such a weapon in the playoffs and close games. An inside threat who would have thunk it! 

4th Q 🍀🍀🍀🍀

 Well we are on to the Pacers tomorrow and Monday night. I hope the C's remember how these Pacers played off their butts in that dumb IST. Payback is a dish best served cold. I expect the C's to lay the smack down on the Pacers. 

Bleed Green! Celtic Pride! It's Gino Time!

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
