Bucks vs Celtics Clash of the Titans


 Celtics welcome the Bucks to the TD Garden. There will be no Giannis on what is Greek heritage night at the Garden. Dame will need to carry this team if they want a shot at beating the C's.

I'm a little late to the party, but JT and PP have come to play tonight! C's have a double digit lead as we enter the half. I absolutely love PPs confidence on the floor this season. Expect him to make huge plays in the playoffs! JT is as smooth as butter tonight. How beautiful is this team, I tell ya I've fallen in love with them. This roster despite being without Holiday and Hauser are firing on all cylinders. Kudos to the C's for exposing Lopez on the pick and rolls tonight. 

Both teams in this third have been exchanging blows. Lillard has come out and is starting to get hot. Bucks have cut into this C's lead. C's need to answer back and do it with some force! JB hits a three and he must have heard me. Back to back Brown buckets and our lead is back to ten! JT just blocked Brook Lopez! He must have been watching DWhite and the block he had earlier in the first half. Love love love how this team plays D! Defense wins championships!!! JBs ball pressure has been exceptional here in the third. What a play by JT off the pick finding DWhite for three! This Celtics ball movement and unselfishness is why they are the best team in the league. C's have taken the Bucks beat punch and come back with multiple haymakers of their own. This Celtics team knows how to answer other teams runs. Mark of a damn good team. 

I like the timeout by Joe here, get the guys settled to finish the third strong! As he says games can be won and lost at the end of quarters. Right out of the Time out we get PP with a wide open corner three! Mark Jones with the All night White, as he scores with the and one. I like it! C's finish this quarter with a nice lead. By no means is this game over especially when Dame is on the other team. JB was straight cooking in that third and he's been so damn efficient this season. On to the fourth! 

PP is a rebounding machine, especially for a guard. I love every piece of his game! You have to love seeing Kornet out here hustling on every play. Someone needs to hit Pat Beverly and then talk massive trash to him. For a guy who isn't anything more than a bench guy, just zip it dude! Getting at DWhite for absolutely no reason. Time for Derrick to nail a few shots in his face! Joe uses a much needed timeout as the Bucks are on a run. C's need to get back to moving the ball with crisp passes and hard screens. C's really need to wake up on offense. Excellent D by PP fighting Portis for the rock! Much needed three by DWhite! JB drove and got the D to commit, kicked to JT who found White for the bomb! Beautiful basketball right there!

It's time to close the door to any Bucks comeback here and now! I'd like to see the C's post JT up here, in these fourth quarters. Get him going from the block as opposed to shooting threes. DWhite in fourth quarters, is C L U T C H! Bobby Portis thought he had an easy bucket, not so fast said DWhite. DWhite with the quick hands knocking the ball off of Bobby's leg. JT with a huge block! Get that week garbage outta here! Al Horford with the Tommy point off the miss taps it to JB. C's will need their best defensive play of the game here. JT with back to back drives, one led to free throws one led to a deuce! Let's GO! KP with a HUGE rebound! JB to the line... Gotta have these, and... He nails em both! C's must work on closing out the fourth with big leads. Yet JT was clutch going to the hoop in the fourth. JB was clutch with free throws in the fourth. That's what you ask of your best players and they delivered. 

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
