C's welcome the Wiz


 Will we get to see Xavier Tillman and Jaden Springer tonight. C's welcome the Washington Wizards to the Garden. It turns both gentlemen are injured and we will have to wait to see them. 


1Q 🍀

C's are attacking early on, and that's what this offense needs to do. I'd love to see this group attack the paint more. Instead of working from the outside in, it should be the inside out.  Jrue Holiday has such an incredible presence on the block. That's the old school basketball I love to see. Where has basketball gone, the post up game is such a lost art. Once that three point shot became the focal point the game has lost its essence. It's still the most beautiful sport, yet that's it's imperfection. More often than not this Celtics group defers to the three. They have moments where they buck that trend, I'd prefer to see that become their norm. I do enjoy how the C's move the ball, it's a thing of beauty. KP must be the anchor in the post for this team to be successful. JB looks fresh and has his midrange jumper going. That could legit be an unstoppable weapon in the playoffs. C's will have to tighten up defensively in the next quarter. 

2Q ☘️☘️

C's will need to step up there defense here in the second. They allowed way too many easy buckets to the Wizards. Wizards also killed the C's with fast break points. JTs game continues to grow, I love when he goes to his midrange. He really should get into MJs head and learn the art of the post/ fadeaway game. Watching the C's execute and attack the paint and see guys cutting gives me hope they can do this more often. The more they can get inside the easier the offense will run. C's are allowing the Wizards to hang around. It's time for a big run to close the quarter. C's have some adjustments to make at the half. 

3Q ☘️☘️☘️

C's need to wake up because they can't continue to sleep walk vs inferior teams. C's need to pound the paint and let KP go to work. This team is really testing my patience. KP is going to take over this third quarter. C's have picked it up on D which is great to see. They still trail but have an opportunity to come back. Time to really lock down and take it to Washington. Scal is very annoying... JT just brought the house down, he split the D and JAMMED IT HOME! C's came to work in this third and it's payed off. 

4Q 🍀🍀🍀🍀

C's must close out this game with intensity! PP out here and straight using Poole. The old show and go plus the AND ONE! C's have earned their place back in the lead. They better not take the Heat lightly on Sunday afternoon. That team will like some payback for the butt whooping we gave em last time. C's pull this one out....

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
