The Hawks Land in Boston

C's have acquired Xavier Tillman, who will bring toughness to the C's bench. He was brought in for two second round picks and Lamar we hardly knew ya Stevens. I'm guessing the C's aren't don't yet. Let's see because tomorrow is the trade deadline. No Jrue Holiday tonight...

1Q 🍀

C's have their work cut out for them, given how these Hawks can score. KP should be able to dominate down low tonight. C's are going to need to slow down Young. He tends to always give us fits. Al Horfords passing this season has been pretty effective. He's very cerebral when he's out there this season. C's need to tighten up on D. If not these Hawks can pop off and go for thirty a quarter. We have a back and forth game so far tonight. Hoping the C's will go on a run and grab a decent lead. We won't be seeing that run here in the first. C's trail after one.

2Q 🏀🏀

C's are making the Hawks pay for their turnovers. Al got the steal and brought it home for the JAM! Scal is yet again drooling over the oppositions players. Nobody cares about Trae Young, at least I don't! As far as I'm concerned he stole an all-star spot from Derrick White. Adam Silver gives two spots to guys on crap teams. Instead of rewarding the best team in the league. Payback will be served in the playoffs... As we watch tonight's game, we have to wonder what Brad will do before the deadline. We know he can find diamonds in the rough and also bring guys in who are looking to prove something. We all remember the trade for Derrick White and look at how that panned out. I don't believe the bench currently constructed is enough. There has to be a piece either thru trade or the buyout market that could impact this team. C's need to learn how to box out. Put a freaking body on someone! C's with the lead at the half. 

3Q ☘️☘️☘️

JT needs to avoid shooting threes and just get to the damn rack! I don't think the C's will run away with this one tonight. It seems like it's going to be nip and tuck all game. Someone needs to let Trae Young know it's ok to get a haircut. C's can't grab any breathing room tonight. Given the fact these Hawks play no D, you would expect a bigger lead for the C's. Not tonight though! When KP attacked the post he's damn near unstoppable. These Hawks have no answer for him and his skill set. Seeing KP play on a regular basis has been a joy this season. C's lead after three...

4Q 🏀🏀🏀🏀

 Derrick White hits a three and Mr 4th Quarter is ready to roll. He liked it so much he did it again! The man has ice water in his veins! He's got that DJ clutch gene that's for sure. Expect DWhite to make multiple winning plays come post season. Just as I'm typing this he hits yet another THREE! The man is CLUTCH! C's finally gave themselves some room on the scoreboard. Tonight was an overall pleasing game to watch. C's were balanced and kicked some butt in the paint. 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
