C's take a bite out of the Big Apple


 The C's are in New York tonight to play one of the more overrated teams in the league. The NBA is always trying to make New York relevant and personally I think it's garbage. The Knicks are no where near the Celtics when it comes to being a historic franchise. These primetime games take forever to start. Why not bump up the start time on these games?


First Quarter ☘️

C's have their lineup of excellence out there tonight. Is it possible that tonight is JTs signature game at Madison Square Garden?!? JB opens us up with a pure three point shot in the bottom of the cup! C's will need to compete on each possession tonight. JB has been the spark to light the fire tonight. Jrue Holiday posts up Brunson and that will be a key tonight. Make him work on D because let's be honest he can't play D. Tire him out and those shots won't be falling at end of the game. I love how JT is attacking the rim tonight. Knicks have no answer for him inside. In all reality the C's should dominate in the paint tonight. C's aren't getting any favorable calls here in the first. I'm not surprised especially in NY. C's lead after the first. 

Second Quarter 🏀🏀

The Green Kornet has entered the game, and he scores! PP on the steal, changes pace and scores easily. You have to love how smart he is and how he uses it to his advantage. Anyone else see how dirty a player Brunson is and what he gets away with. Refs will never call him on it though. I love the Celtics ball movement on offense tonight. If they go on a run I don't see the Knicks coming back. Cs should be up by more, but the refs won't allow it. C's are starting to push the lead. C's lead after the second. 

Third Quarter ☘️🍀☘️

C's will need to crash the glass more in this quarter. Way too many second chance points in that first half. If the C's clamp down on D, expect good things to occur. It happened the other night in Chicago, expect it here as well. The Knicks big is a very dirty player and gets away with a lot. C's ball movement is still be very effective here in the third. The C's threes are starting to rain all over these Knicks. JT forces the Knicks big into a travel, now that's D! JB follows that up with a corner bomb. Why is it every time the C's draw a foul the Knicks cry?! The C's are starting to cook like a burger on the grill! Sizzle Sizzle! This Celtics D in this quarter has changed the game! Josh Hart never shuts his mouth, when you are a mediocre player just zip it up! C's lead after the third.

Fourth Quarter 🏀🏀🏀🏀

C's need to keep pushing the pace and attacking the paint. Al just showed how to pick on a weaker defender. Post him up and get to the cup! Al has been a dawg since he entered the fourth! I love what he's giving out there tonight! C's are winning the second chance opportunities right now! You have to love seeing the best team in the league out here hustling. Despite the fact these Knicks don't give up, the C's have stood their ground. Tonight's been an all around team effort. There have been moments where each player on that floor has made a winning play. KP with an epic block to put an exclamation point on tonight's win. C's reminding the Knicks who the top team is. C's win! 

Celtic Pride! Bleed Green! ☘️🏀🍀

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
