Breaks over...

C's are in Chicago to continue their journey towards Banner 18. No time for letting up, let's keep this train chugging. 

1Q ☘️

Time to get back to business, and keep those wins coming. C's are cold, take it to the rack! Jrue finally gets the C's on the board with a corner three. Jrue has been deadly from the corners this season. That shot will be a huge weapon in the playoffs. What a pick and roll as JB finds KP for the JAM! After a slow start the C's are warming up. These Bulls really don't like to defend the three, so the C's better make them pay for it. JB is out here attacking that rim, that's what we need from him! DWhite hasn't missed a step as he continues blocking shots, making steals and scoring. He's truly the Swiss army knife of these Celtics. Just a multi facetted WEAPON! C's haven't missed a beat despite being off for the All Star break. C's lead after one and here we go! 

2Q 🍀🍀

These Celtics continue to play efficiently on offense, these Bulls have no answer defensively. Despite sometimes feeling like this bench doesn't have "it" both PP and Sam have made their impact. Once the playoffs start minutes won't be as free as the regular season. I expect PP and Sam to get a few minutes here or there but not to the point where it will hurt the C's. The big Dawgs or Big 6 will see most of the minutes. The key for the C's going into this stretch run and post season is going to be health. KP is the key that unlocks what this team is truly capable of. So in my mind make sure you treat him like a delicate piece of glass ware. C's have allowed the Bulls back into the game. They will need a nice run to close out the half and extend their lead. JB just manned up and gets to the cup! He completes the And One, and the C's need to dig in on D now. JB with a step back nothing but net three! This game is way too close. C's trail... 

3Q ☘️☘️☘️

Defense needs to be the catalyst of this third for the C's. JTs first touch is a hard take to the cup drawing a foul. They need to keep pounding the paint. Jrue Holiday with the three where all you heard was straight twine. Kudos to JB for drawing the charge on the big fella. C's have asserted themselves in this third! They have a five point lead as the Bulls call a timeout. We need to see that lead grow some more! This Bulls team doesn't really impress me. I mean they are playing better tonight in comparison to the last time we met. JB with a huge hustle from behind BLOCK! You love seeing your stars give max effort out there. It's all about the effort and heart you give out there. JT just hit a three from beyond way downtown! C's need to close this quarter off strong, they can't allow any let ups. Poor Sam is going to end up with a black eye after getting nailed by Kornet. C's lead after the third!

4Q 🍀🍀🍀🍀

 C's offense is executing at an elite level. Kornet is out here rebounding like a machine! He's a rebounding and dunking savant! There are certain players you remember from rosters over the years. If the C's win a chip this season Kornet will be a guy we all remember. He will be unforgettable, cue Nat King Cole! The more I watch Derrick White the more I fall in love with his entire game. This young man is beyond special! C's have been very good on D in this second half and that's why they have the lead. C's with a good win coming off the all star break. That's seven in a row!

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
