C's are in Brooklyn

 C's are in Brooklyn to take on the Nets, they will also see them tomorrow night as well. No KP due to a back contusion, I'm glad they are playing it safe with the Unicorn! 

1st Q 🏀

C's need to be ready for the Nets best shot. We have a back and forth battle in the early minutes. C's need to attack the post, that's where they can exploit these Nets. Getting to see Jrue post up should be a regular thing we see. As Jrue posts up he finds a cutting DWhite for the layup. That play should be a staple for this team. I feel cutting is an underrated part of today's NBA. JB is looking very spry tonight. Getting to the cup with no resistance. C's have been very good at pushing the ball up the floor. These Nets don't want to play D, run em off the floor. The way Sam comes off screens is very direct and leads to very good looks. That rainbow three of his seems to hang up there quite a bit, yet when it swishes its beautiful. JT seems to be locked and loaded early on. Knocking down three after three. C's lead after the first, after a nice run to end it. 

2nd Q 🏀🏀

With no KP tonight, JT has taken the reigns and shown why he's a stud! Both teams shot very well in that first quarter, C's at 63 percent and the Nets at 55. I hope the C's clamp down on them here in the second. It would be nice to put some real breathing room between themselves and the Nets. This Nets floor is so very unlikable. I'm loving the active hands by the C's right now. Defense is all about putting that effort and work in. When the C's do that they are the best team in the league. JB earns the C's an extra possession and JT nails the THREE! Watching Ben Simmons is a travesty at how bad a player he is. The money he's made for doing absolutely nothing blows my mind. JB went in that same draft and he's ten times the player Ben will ever be. Al Horford has been very efficient this evening. Whenever he's called upon he steps up. C's with the lead at the half...

3rd Q 🏀🏀🏀

JT has been en Fuego so far tonight. He's doing it from deep, and inside the paint. He has this ability to do this regularly, talk about scary for the league. C's can't allow for a let down in this third. Jrue gets shafted after playing great D. NBA refs are "turrible" to quote Charles Barkley. C's need to wake up because this lead is diminishing. Time to get back to moving the ball for the best shot and playing hard D. Excellent possession off the time out and DWhite nails a three! The way JT orchestrates the offense is like a conductor with the symphony. Dare I say like John Williams conducting the Boston Pops. C's have built the lead back up. Gotta love it! 

4th Q 🏀🏀🏀🏀

C's have played pretty effectively tonight up to this point. Time to close it out and get on a plane for home to do it all again tomorrow. The expectation is to blow em out! Head into All Star weekend on a nice win streak. Brissett is always making those hustle plays. He grabs the offensive rebound and earns the C's another possession! That's a Tommy Point! C's have had a slower start here in the fourth, there's time to pick it up though. They have done just that and are surging. Great job by the C's tonight scoring off the Nets turnovers. The game has become a little too close for my liking. C's Win! 

Bleed Green! Celtic Pride!

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
