C's in the Bayou

 C's look to bounce back off of a few rocky losses. 

1Q ☘️ 

JB opens up the game with sweet fade away jumper. When he is locked into that shot he's unstoppable. Zion is going to be a problem today. He's just so physically wide and extremely athletic. JT living in the post is a good thing to see early on. I'd love if he learned that he could own the post. He has the size to drive on any one he wants. I see a good amount of Cs fans in the stands which I love. C's fans are everywhere and travel well. I really think this Celtics team isn't giving their all on defense. Have they really checked out given they showed up the East? Is it being bored, I can't figure this out. What about being tired due to such a long season?! C's might get their butts handed to them today. The lack of defense is what is truly concerning right now. The truly haven't won anything as a group. NBA titles are what truly matters to me. KP gets in the post and scores, stop shooting threes and just do that all damn game. Lack of defense, and timing on offense have us trailing after one. 

2Q 🍀🏀 

Not sure what the answer is but the effort on D over these past few games isn't there. C's can't allow this to be a pattern. Finish the season strong, and go into the post season ready. The way Jrue Holiday finished the first is why he will be a difference maker in the playoffs. Jrue is really an x factor, he can change the game on both ends. Especially the way he plays defense, which he plays like a champion! C's have a lot of work to do if they want to erase this Pelicans lead. Defense is the key, Pels shot over sixty percent in that first. C's must push the pace and run against the Pels. I've noticed a difference in how the C's are playing here in the second. Effort, ball movement and defense! Finally seeing glimpses of their beautiful ball movement. Till comes in and makes an impact on the offensive glass. This is who the Celtics are! Especially contesting shots on D! C's have really made an effort to attack Zion on D. Great job by the coaching staff to make adjustments. DWhite gets on the board and nails a three off the set play. The way the entire team picked things up here in the second has been a good thing to see. After a lackluster first this second has been much better. They adjusted on both ends and are playing Celtics basketball. The way this game is going it should be a tight one. Wouldn't it be nice to see JT hit a few shots during the fourth to win the game. C's with a slim lead at the half. 

3Q ☘️🏀☘️

Jrue starts us off from deep! Three bomb corner pocket! Good things happen to the C's when they play D! C's are the attackers here in the third! Love seeing them bring the energy! That's what good teams do! I want to see more of this and for the C's to land the knockout blows here in the third! I'm very pleased with what I've seen in this third and the second. Everything changed when the C's played better D and attacked Zion. KP out here stuffing Zions shots as he says return to sender! Getting a shout out to one my faves in Elvis with the return to sender line! JB out here blocking shots too! The difference between the first and the third is the C's are relying on their D! They are also the team on the attack, making the Pels play on their heels. Zion has been a non factor since the first, C's made him a priority and it shows. JB is one reason why Zions rhythm is off. I'd love to see the C's finish this half on a strong run. C's have a lead after the third. No complaints about this third other than I'd like a bigger lead. 

4Q 🍀🏀🍀🏀

Sam Hauser finally hits the scoreboard, a nothing but net three! Al in the post is cooking! C's by twenty! Pels are one of the hottest teams in the league until they ran against the wall of defense by the C's. Much better effort all around tonight! 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
